The Elder Scrolls Online Announces New Morrowind Update
(Last Updated On: January 31, 2017)

Bethesda Softworks and Zenimax Online Studios has just dropped a major announcement a few hours ago that they will be adding in a new massive update for The Elder Scrolls Online, that will bring new additional content, new quests, and an entirely new location — the iconic continent of Morrowind.

My first introduction to the Elder Scrolls series was Morrowind on the original Xbox, and I played that game for hours upon hours exploring all the different classes, locations, skills, and quests. For those of you like me that has a special place in their heart for Morrowind, you may be excited to hear that the new continent is coming to The Elder Scrolls Online, which will also include the island of Vvardenfell.

I’m curious to see how much they change with the geography and the world map, or if they will pay homage to the original Xbox version by keeping certain landmarks and locations the same? From what I have seen from the videos and screenshots, they have kept things pretty close to the original.

Regardless, an updated Morrowind sounds pretty exciting to me. I have personally never played the Elder Scrolls Online because I heard reports that the game launched with a rocky start, but since then gamers and fans have been reporting that Zenimax and Bethesda have been working hard to fix all of their mistakes to make The Elder Scrolls Online great again. From the looks of things, they were pretty successful.

The newest chapter for the MMORPG will be coming for Xbox One, PS4, PC and Mac on June 6th, 2017. The game studio also promises more than 30 hours of new gameplay content and storylines for you to explore. Additionally, they also released a cinematic teaser trailer for Morrowind that shows an Assassin and the new Warden class (which seems to be like a Druid) working together to carry out a hit on one of the Grandmasters for “Betraying The Order”.

The trailer goes on to show a few of the monsters you can expect to fight, and of course ends with an epic boss rising out of what looks to be the Dwemer Ruins. Take a look at the official trailer that I linked down below.

    I thought this game crashed and burned, but it sounds like it’s still plodding along decently?

      I thought so too. I don’t follow ESO regularly so I can’t answer in detail, but there was a HUGE update that fixed a lot of the flaws the game had and the developers seemed to actually listen to the player’s complaints, and after that update the game slowly came back to life. From what I’ve read around the internet, the game is pretty decent now. I haven’t played it so I can’t confirm…

      I don’t really want to throw $40-$60 bucks at this game to find out… but I DO want to see Morrowind again. *sigh* choices… 🙁
