Morrowind Game of the Year

Preview By: 2nd Opp

Developer:   Bethesda Softworks
Publisher:   Zenimax Media
Genre:   RPG
Est. Release:   October 2003
Date Posted:  

5-26-03

Surprise!  Just when you thought that The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind had given all it could on Xbox, Bethesda has come forth with a shocking announcement of Morrowind: Game of the Year edition.  This may sound like a gimmick for them to sell more copies of Xbox's greatest RPG, but it actually is going to give us gamers exactly what we've been demanding: Tribunal and Bloodmoon.  That's right, both expansion packs will be included with the original game all on one disk.  It looks like this fall the VGF staff is once again going to slip away into RPG bliss.

The inclusion of the expansion packs may not sound like much to some but these are games in themselves, adding between 40 and 80 hours of brand new gameplay.  You will get your hands on tons of new weapons, armor, and spells. There are completely new areas for you to explore, including dungeons, islands, and frozen wastelands.  Plus many new beasts for you to slay...or to join, because just like the first game which let you become a vampire, you now can choose to be a werewolf.  There is plenty of new content that is being packed onto this disk, which should justify you purchasing it for a 2nd time (itís still cheaper then buying both expansions for the PC) for the rumored price point of only $29.99.

Better still, existing Morrowind characters can be transferred to the new game, and can enter the two new lands at virtually any time during gameplay.

From the official press release, here's a list of key features in Morrowind GotY:

  • Players can take their existing Morrowind characters and save games and continue their adventures in the Morrowind GotY edition - a first for a console game like this

  • Adds up to 80 hours of new gameplay and quests for current Morrowind players

  • Explore the forests, caves, and snow-covered wastelands of the island of Solstheim

  • Delve into new, epic-sized dungeons and visit the Capital City of Mournhold and the Clockwork City of Sotha Sil

  • Fight new creatures including bears and wolves, lich lords and goblins, ice minions and spriggans

  • Direct the construction of a mining colony and face the threat of savage werewolves

  • Become a werewolf and indulge your thirst for the hunt.

  • New armor and weapons including Nordic Mail and Ice blades
