Morrowind is the next expansion for Elder Scrolls Online, special editions and release date detailed

Remembrance of things past

Zenimax held a livestream today in which they announced that the next expansion for Elder Scrolls Online would be Morrowind. The expansion will release this Summer and includes a new zone, class, storyline and battle mode.

This will be the first time since launch that a new character class was released, and it will be The Warden. The Warden is the first new class since the 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.

The story will take place about 700 years before The Elder Scrolls 3 and feature a new PvP battle mode called Battlegrounds. It will be an intense 4v4v4 battle royale 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.
