The Elder Scrolls Online Morrowind Announced

The Elder Scrolls Online website has the promised announcement of what's next for Bethesda's MMORPG. This is a Morrowind expansion that will launch on June 6th, offering a new location, a new class, a new PvP mode, and more. A Pre-Order FAQ has all the details on how to pick this up, and here's more on what it will offer:

This June, the next Chapter in The Elder Scrolls Online will begin. Return to the iconic island of Vvardenfell for over 30 hours of adventure in a brand new location, with a new class, a new PvP mode, a new Trial, and so much more.

The fate of Morrowind hangs in the balance and you must take up the mantle of a hero to help Vivec, the legendary warrior-poet and Guardian of Vvardenfell, save the world from a deadly Daedric threat. Set roughly 700 years before the events of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, ESO's new Chapter takes you to familiar locations as you attempt to solve the mystery of Vivec's mysterious illness and restore his strength. Travel from the volcanic Ashlands to the mushroom-filled forests, and walk the streets of Vivec City, still under construction at this point in time.

With the largest landmass addition to date, a brand-new player class, and an intense new PvP mode, The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind is the perfect entry point for new players and a great way for veterans to continue their journey.

Those who already own ESO can simply upgrade their experience and immediately jump into the new Chapter when it launches on June 6, 2017 for all platforms, including on PC in Japan. And thanks to the One Tamriel update from last October, new players can also sail directly into Morrowind and play with other adventurers of all levels. The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind also includes all the original ESO content, so new players will have access to hundreds of hours of excitement throughout Tamriel. Existing players can choose to carry their characters over to Morrowind, or start fresh on a new adventure with a new face.

Seems pretty steep. A full price item for an addon?

The entire game kind of ruined the lore of the world, so it doesn't really matter how much content they add if it's built on the same tired blah-blah-blah of every other MMO.

This.

ES was always about freedom and player choice, and they go ahead and introduce all the MMO staples such as classes, pets, skins, treasure maps (wtf?), PvP Arenas, etc. etc. Its basically WoW in an ES skin.

Apart from classes, I've not one clue what's your problem with the rest of that list. None.

Also unsure how the game ruined ES lore, although I am admittedly not well-versed in it.

I haven't played this since beta and the open beta was pretty bad. A buggy mess, with a half-cocked tutorial & WoW style kill/fetch/fedex quests everywhere.

That said, I have a few friends who play who say it's a very solid B2P MMO at the moment and the addition of Morrowind makes me want to pick the game up when I find a good sale.

The most fun I've had with this game was just ignoring quests altogether and trekking across the landscape, sightseeing while fighting random mobs and gathering resources. Eventually it became a bit tricky because I wasn't leveling fast enough to keep up with the areas I was reaching, but that was before the major update that made everything scale to you (or the other way around, whatever).

The group dungeons are pretty cool, too, though. Some of them are public ones that you can just wander into and kill stuff along with people even if you're not in a party. Each one has a bunch of open-ended objectives that encourage you to explore the whole thing.
