The brand new entry for the online RPG introduces more than 30 hours of fresh Elder Scrolls story content; a new playable class, the Warden; a new 4v4v4 fast-action PvP mode, Battlegrounds; a new 12-player Trial; and a return to one of the most beloved locales in the Elder Scrolls universe, the iconic island of Vvardenfell from the award-winning RPG, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind is the biggest addition to The Elder Scrolls Online yet and redefines the traditional MMO expansion by delivering vast new content and features that are equally accessible and fun for both existing and new ESO players.
New players can start a character without completing any previous ESO content and head straight into Vvardenfell, with hundreds of hours of original ESO content available to them at any time. ESO veterans can upgrade and immediately journey to Morrowind to start the new epic adventure with their existing characters or with a new Warden.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind adds a host of new content for the game's millions of players, including:
· A Massive New Zone -- Vvardenfell: The largest zone added to The Elder Scrolls Online since launch is also a nostalgic trip through one of the Elder Scrolls' most beloved lands. Utilizing the same geographic footprint as The Elder Scrolls III, including all key points of interest from the classic game, Vvardenfell is painstakingly reimagined 700 years before the events of TES III, from the docks of Seyda Neen, to the volcanic Ashlands, to dense, mushroom-filled forests, and through the glory of Vivec City, still under construction in this time period.
· New Class - The Warden: Players will harness nature-based magic to master the powerful new character class - The Warden. The Warden is the first new class since launch of ESO, and true to ESO and the Elder Scrolls franchise, the player will have the freedom to select from a number of abilities that enable a variety of play styles. The Warden also introduces a devastating new combat ally - the War Bear - a ferocious fighter will stay by the Warden's side through the most intense battles.
· New PvP Mode - Battlegrounds: The Elder Scrolls Online is renowned for open world PvP battles, pitting hundreds of players in a massive battle for supremacy in Cyrodiil. The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind will introduce a new PvP mode - Battlegrounds - intense 4v4v4 battles in arena-like environments. Players take the battle to the Ashlands to claim their place among the fiercest and most accomplished combat veterans in Tamriel.
