Take up arms as a Warden, head to Vvardenfell, and save the world in The Elder Scrolls Online. The MMORPG’s first expansion is out now across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Morrowind and Update 14 are now available on consoles, giving players a chance to try out the new Battleground PvP, conquer new dungeons, and explore a new Trial.
The first expansion to The Elder Scrolls Online adds the first post-release class to the game with the release of the Warden. This new class features three skill lines, one for each role. Players can select skills from the Animal Companions, Green Balance, and Winter’s Embrace lines. These skill lines fill the damage role, the healer role, and the tank role respectively. The Warden can summon a bear to aid them in combat, heal their allies, and adorn themselves in ice for protection.
In addition to the new class, the expansion unlocks an entire new region of Vvardenfell for players to traverse. New public dungeons, delves, crafting sets, item sets, and more await those that journey through the area. The Update 14 patch also changes and addresses many issues in The Elder Scrolls Online. Experience is adjusted, the Champion Point cap is raised, and new benefits are available to ESO Plus subscribers.
Players can check out the new launch trailer for the Morrowind expansion or log in now to start adventuring. With the expansion released and the Warden class available to all, players can look forward to new pieces of downloadable content, Crown Store updates, and consistent patches according to the official site.
“Over the next few months, we will continue to work to improve the game while providing a full suite of new content, quality of life and balance updates and DLC game packs. Keep an eye out for more details in the future – E3 is coming up fast! The world of Tamriel is only going to get bigger.”
PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will, of course, need to download a major patch before playing the expansion. Those on PlayStation 4 can expect an update of over 42 gigabytes. On Xbox One, players will need to download over 32 gigabytes of data before starting the game. Each console has its own patch notes which can be viewed on the official forums.
To get started in the Morrowind expansion, existing characters of The Elder Scrolls Online can head to their Collections menu and select the expansion in the Chapters area. From there, players will be led to Captain Jenassa who will aid the player in traveling to the new area. New characters will automatically start in the expansion content if they begin with the tutorial or not.
Since the One Tamriel update to The Elder Scrolls Online, the world battle-levels characters to every area in the game. Players of different levels and Champion levels can play together anywhere in the game world with ease. In content like this, it does not matter what factions players belong to either. Everyone can play alongside everyone with ease.

In player-versus-player environments, factions do matter typically. In the new Battlegrounds mode, players are assigned to one of three teams when they queue for the fight. This new mode features three teams of four battling against each other in three different objectives. Battlegrounds pit teams against each other in Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and Domination modes. With three different maps, Battleground players can expect matches to last no more than 15 minutes.
This is the first time for console players to get their hands on the Morrowind expansion. As the Inquisitr reported, PC players have been enjoying the expansion for a few weeks since it released in early access. The Elder Scrolls Online expansion officially launched today, though, across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
