The Elder Scrolls Online may not quite have become the all conquering juggernaut fans (and most likely the developers) were hoping for since it’s initial release in 2014, as evidenced by the move to a subscription free model a year later. However, the game has recently garnered a lot of attention and traction as a result of the upcoming expansion based in Morrowind. Fans of the Elder Scrolls series will instantly recognise Morrowind as the setting of the well loved and highly successful third game in the main series, and as such anticipation for our long awaited return has been rampant.
The good news is that the day for the return to Vvardenfell has finally come, as PC players of ESO now have access to an exclusive Early Access event. This is only available to those who have pre-ordered the expansion already. For those of you who are interested but haven’t yet taken the plunge you can pre-order it for yourself here.
Morrowind brings a whole host of new gameplay features most notably a new PvP mode, known as Battlegrounds where three teams of four battle in a variety of gametypes including Capture the Flag, Deathmatch and Domination. Even more excitingly, Morrowind brings the first new class since the game’s launch, in the Warden. Billed as a mix between the classic druid and ranger archetypes, there is a wide array of new skill lines to follow, but the best is undoubtedly the Animal Companion ability, allowing you to summon a swarm of bees or even a bear to aid you in combat. The full release of Morrowind is due out on June 6th.
