June 6, 2017
If you read this recent post about the housing patch, then you got to see me gush about Morrowind when I described my history with TES games, and you already know how I feel about Bethesda’s big announcement yesterday.
I’d heard rumors the next zone added would be Vvardenfell. I thought that would be cool, but it didn’t really register until I was watching the twitch stream yesterday and the Morrowind logo came up on the screen – my eyes immediately filled with tears, and I watched the whole cast with a leaky face. Morrowind, y’all, for real. All of it. Vivec City. Ald’ruhn and city halls made out of crab shells. The new warden class will be able to summon a cliff racer. The main quest takes you to speak with Vivec. There’s Sadrith Mora and Balmora. The Morag Tong will be in the main quest.
I’m making a squee sound so high-pitched only dolphins can hear it. Did I use that joke when writing about housing? Whatevs. M’fing MORROWIND IS BACK.
I’ll link the trailer first, because it’s so goddamn pretty.
And just in case you’ve just escaped from solitary confinement on a small island and haven’t heard the news, here’s a link to the official announcement on the ESO site. To sum up: Morrowind: June 6, 2017. What else do you need to know?
