Update: In an interview with Finder, Bethesda confirmed that The Elder Scrolls Online would be updated for Project Scorpio. The creative director said:
I think we’re going to be in for the same kinds of things that we did with the PlayStation 4 Pro. So visual stability will be up there. We’ll probably have the same types of visual bells and whistles. As for what Microsoft is going to release, I don’t know.
This is great news for those hoping that one of the best games on Xbox One would be upgraded. We can’t wait to see what Bethesda does with Project Scorpio and The Elder Scrolls Online!
Bethesda Softworks has released The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, a massive new chapter for the wildly popular The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, worldwide today for Xbox One and PC. The brand new entry for the online role-playing game (RPG) introduces more than 30 hours of fresh Elder Scrolls story content, a new playable class, a new fast-action competitive mode, 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 The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.
The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind is the biggest addition to The Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) yet and redefines the traditional massively multiplayer online game (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:
- Massive New Zone: 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. Utilising 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 The Elder Scrolls III, from the docks of Seyda Neen, through the volcanic Ashlands, the dense, mushroom-filled forests, and to the glory of Vivec City, still under construction in this time period.
- New Class: 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 that will stay by the Warden’s side through the most intense battles.
- New PvP Mode: 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.
We’ll see you around Tamriel! If you haven’t checked out this game on either Xbox One and PC, you should. It’s vast and fantastic.
