Gotta give Bethesda credit. They know if they even mention the word Morrowind all of us old Elder Scrolls fanboys will pay attention. The next expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online is taking us back to Morrowind.
The Elder Scrolls Online has gotten a lot better since it’s release. I used to avoid it like the plague, but it drew me back in when they de-leveled the world and made it more like an actual Elder Scrolls game instead of a MMO with The Elder Scrolls in the title. It’s still a MMO and has some MMO things that are in every MMO, but it’s also a Elder Scrolls game and that’s what made me a regular player.
I’m very excited for Morrowind. I don’t need this to be a Morrowind remaster for me to get excited for this. I would love to travel around Morrowind before shit hit the fan in The Elder Scrolls III. I liked what I saw of the new class in the trailer and I really want to try him out. The new Warden class seems like a mix between a warrior and mage.
The Morag Tong is back and they look better then ever. I’ve always liked the Morag Tong over The Dark Brotherhood. It would be awesome if you could only join one faction too since they don’t get along. It looks like my assassin would have a great time in this expansion. Hopefully there’s some new Fighters Guild/Mages Guild stuff for me to do too with my other characters.
It’s also really neat that I can start this new expansion whenever I want. I start a fresh character in Morrowind if I choose to. If this expansion is a hit I’m hopeful that we’ll get more fleshed out regions in the future. I would love to walk around Skyrim before the civil war and dragons tore it apart.
I was planning on jumping back in Guild Wars 2, but I changed my mind. I want to play some ESO now and I think that’s what I’m going to do as soon as I’m done writing this.
What did you think of the big announcement?
