Elder Scrolls Online News - Zenimax and Bethesda Interactive announced that the Elder Scrolls Online will be adding Morrowind to the game, the largest zone since the launch of the game. Morrowind will be released on June 6th. All of the major points of interest from Elder Scrolls III are included such as Vvardenfell, though the events will take place seven hundred years prior to the events of ESIII. Players will journey to the Seyda Neen to the Ashlands to Vivec City and many other iconic locations.

    I don't think I have to tell you how stoked I am for this, but I am incredibly stoked. Psyched. Other generic term that pales in comparison to how much I want that Warden.

    Try to be excellent to everyone you meet. You never know what someone else has seen or endured.

    For a moment I thought they'd release modernised Morrowind. Oh snap! Maybe next time. Edit: I've to see this. And how they'll mangle that lore(which is pretty well estabilished in "Brief history of Empire v1-6"). And the resulting meltdown. Should be fun :D

    Oh god, I was about to delete my characters after housing and retire from ESO. Looks like those plans have been pushed back.

    Was playing this a bit last night and was really enjoying it. Beings I started playing ES with MW I may just get this if I keep liking the gameplay.

    While I want this badly, I really don't like those prices.

    I have a feeling that this is the first MMO expansion in many years that will actually deserve to be called "expansion".

    Fantastic news.
    Morrowind is my favorite RPG ever, so I can hardly wait for this DLC.

    While a return to Morrowind - technically those parts not already in the game - is indeed exciting news, the fact that they decided to re-brand this DLC as an "expansion" despite having little more in it than previous offerings called DLC (e.g. Orsinium) is leaving a sour taste in my mouth.

    I'm starting to feel like I'm getting over-marketed in ESO.

    And this kind of behavior on their part continues to surprise you by now why?

    It's not surprise, just more depressed because I actually enjoy the game play... they may succeed in driving me away despite that though.

    Oh I totally get that as I've already reached that point and the cost of this "expansion" is going to continue to keep me away.

    Morrowind is twice the size of Orsinium. Not even comparable.

    I felt the need to go and dig out my original Morrowind CD's after watching the trailer as the nostalgia was pretty strong especially when the theme music started to play at the end of the trailer.

    As my favourite rpg of all time it's a must buy for me anyway, hopefully they will do it justice, can't wait :)

    Orsinium was marketed as 20 hours... definitely comparable.

    "Orsinium, ESO's largest DLC game pack to date, features a colossal new zone with over 20 hours of story content, a new single-player monster arena, new public dungeons, and much more!"

    And yet Wrothgar would have been considered an expansion by most MMOs. That Zone is absolutely massive, can't imagine how huge is Vvardenfell going to be.

    But no, it won't be.

    The Warden comes with Morrowind and is not part of the base game. Only those that own Morrowind will be able to create a Warden.

    They set the standard and used the nomenclature. The difference? In 2015 when Orsinium released they were heavily marketing their model of base game + DLC and the sub's main benefit was having access to all DLC.

    But that's old news. Now it's gambling boxes and DLC re-branded as expansions.
