Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind – Released Today!

Free to Play MMORPG Elder Scrolls Online has released its much anticipated expansion Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind today for PC, PS4, Mac and X-box One. Morrowind is a beloved game in the main line Elder Scrolls franchise and this expansion will take players back to that world. See the details and trailer below:

 

June 6, 2017 (Rockville, MD) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax Media company, has released The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, a massive new Chapter for the wildly popular The Elder Scrolls Online, worldwide today for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac. The brand new entry for the online RPG introduces more than 30 hours of fresh Elder Scrolls story content; a new playable class, the Warden; a new 4v4v4 fast-action PvP mode, Battlegrounds; 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 RPG, 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 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:

  • A Massive New Zone – Vvardenfell: 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 TES 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 – The Warden: 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 – Battlegrounds: 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.

 

The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind is now available worldwide for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac. For more information, or to purchase the game, please visit http://www.elderscrollsonline.com .

Trophy Whores 274 – PS4 Too Soon

I went there.

This week, on Trophy Whores, we delve into the uninspiring and unnecessary PlayStation Meeting 2016.  Despite showing new hardware, Sony and its partners did little to excite us.  Having said that, we’re pretty sure that everyone should be all in on Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man, which looks gorgeous on the PlayStation 4 Pro.  Of course, if you own any version of the PlayStation 4, then you will, presumably, get a fantastic experience out of Insomniac’s spin at Spider-Man.

We aren’t surprised by the announcements of the PlayStation 4 Pro and PlayStation 4 Slim, as Sony has a history of releasing sleeker and improved versions of its consoles mid-cycle; however, we agree that Sony is releasing these consoles too soon into the lifespan of the PS4.  While $400 is a fair price point for the new consoles, the standard PlayStation 4 plays the same games, and those games look really good, so the PS4 Pro and PS4 Slim don’t seem necessary.

Join the Trophy Whores as they discuss, among other things, PlayStation 4 Pro, PlayStation 4 Slim, Batman: Return to Arkham, and Bethesda.

Alex has a special shout-out.  On September 16, at Gallery K on Barret Avenue in Louisville, his friend Avalon is holding an art gallery for the first part of the survivor modeling project, This is MY Body, which features sexual assault survivors.  Through this event, these brave women hope to reclaim their bodies and raise sexual assault awareness by speaking out against a pervasive problem in our country.  Admission is free.  Magazine copies featuring the models and photographs will be sold at the show, and the profits will be donated to the Center for Women and Families.  The gallery will be open from 5 pm to 10 pm.  It will be a fantastic event, and if possible, you should go.

We appreciate your support (and your ears)!
