    Will extra character slots be available once the new expansion hits live ?

    Love the reveal today. My question is I have 12 max characters with horse and bag space leveled. So deleting a character seems to be drastic and unecessary. Will there be a way to get another character slot or two? Hate to not have a warden especially if it adds new game play elements.

    This.

    A quick note and a couple of questions:
    ...
    4. Will ESO:Morrowind be treated as a standalone on Steam? (seperate entry in library)
    The Steam listing for ESO:Morrowind says, "This content requires the base game The Elder Scrolls® Online: Tamriel Unlimited™ on Steam in order to play." That to me says that it will not have a separate listing inside the library, but will be listed under the Steam DLC section.

    Will we be able to continue to play with friends who just have Tamriel Unlimited, but not the Morrowind Edition? Just for the original areas plus DLC we have in common, of course.

    If we had the Imperial Edition Upgrade (non Crown Store) before, will this be overwritten by the Morrowind Edition? (The display on our account page here is a bit confusing)

    Since this is not available via the Crown Store, is the Morrowind Edition plus all the pre-order / Collector's Edition bonuses available on NA and EU servers or just the one where we login first?

    And, as others asked before - do we get more character slots? Or alternatively the option to change a character's class. I'm not sure I could decide who of my current characters to delete to be able to try the new class.

    Could you make Naryu's Journal available in digital format as well, for the Digital Collector's Edition?

    It seems as though the digital collector's upgrade excluding the base game is more expensive on Steam than with other local retailers. Since I've only ever bought/played my ESO game through Steam, would it be possible for me to purchase Morrowind through a different vendor and activate it on steam afterwards?

    Morning folks!

    So I've just seen the announcement and watched the trailer - my god, what an awesome trailer!

    I'm sorely tempted to purchase and hop back in, but I just had a quick question I hoped you'd be able to help me with @ZOS_GinaBruno or @ZOS_JessicaFolsom.

    The new class looks terrific, but class aside, how does this expansion compare in size and scope to the DLCs like Wrothgar in terms of landmass, PVE open world content and quests etc? How much bigger is it?

    Thanks, and big congrats to all the regulars and ZOS on what looks to be a promising new chapter!

    My question is this: If I already own ESO: TU and order the physical Collector's edition, will I be able to add the expansion to my existing account? If so, will I be able to use the included version of the base game as a 2nd account with no access to Morrowind.
    So basically I want to know, if I can split the base game and the Morrowind expansion from the physical Collector's edition.

    This is my question also. I prefer to have physical copies of games / expansions. However there only appears to be physical copies that include both the expansion and the base game, with a price to match.

    Hence are 2 different keys included (one for base game, and a separate code for the expansion)?

    If this is the case, it would allow me to get the physical expansion, and give the base game (which I already have) to a friend.

    OK @ZOS_GinaBruno having read that FAQ it doesn't answer this question:

    If you already own ESO, you'll see this error message. You'll want to get the Digital CE upgrade in this case.

    But I can buy the physical morrowind collector's edition (with the statue) and add that code to my existing ESO account, yes?
    Some of us really want the physical collector's edition but want to apply the code to our existing accounts. Is this possible? If it is, since the physical collector's edition comes with the base game, do we get to have another account?

    As in:
    I already have account Ur-Quan. If I buy the physical collector's edition can I apply the expansion pack to my Ur-Quan account, and then have another new account (call it Ur-Quan_Kzer-Za) that wouldn't have the expansion pack?

    Yes, you can do that.

    @feyii As for your first question - yes, you will still be able to play with friends who don't own the Morrowind expansion. Like you mentioned, just have to be in zones you both own :)

    My wife has been considering getting ESO, so If I get her the $59.99 version today, which says it includes the first game of the series, would she be able to play the original game today? Or will it not be accessible until the Morrowind expansion comes out?
    If you buy the $59.99 version of ESO: Morrowind, you will not be able to play it until June 6.

    I don't get it, is this a completely different game or is it some kind of dlc mega expansion? Will I need to pick from two different games on my xbox, or can I transition to the island on my map from regular eso. Also, will my character change or will he be the same as he is now?

    Main question is: new game, or dlc/expansion that is connected to the base?
    It's connected to the base game.

    Will the digital upgrade require me to use Steam? I don't like Steam and my current game is not a Steam game.
    Only if you purchase from the Steam store. The Digital Upgrade on the ESO Store does not require Steam.

    If we buy a copy of this, does this come as the base game or the gold edition?
    Base game. No DLCs will be included.

    - is it possible to start a new char directly in the new zone? Would love to start a warden but does not wish to choose between doing new char and doing new zone first
    Yes. Owners of ESO: Morrowind will play through a new tutorial which drops them in Vvardenfell.

    FLambda wrote: »
    So, it is considered a separate game.
    Kinda, but you still have to own the base ESO as well, and can freely travel between the zones, so it's not really separate.

    Sintao wrote: »

    Since the purchase is being made outside of the server and directly on the Account System, it should apply to both servers.

    So if ESO Plus no longer gives us automatic access to new DLC, what is the point of it beyond cosmetic additions from the crown store?

    This isn't a DLC though, this is a expansion pack. That's why it's not in the store.

    its not in the store at the moment i think you meant to put, because no doubt once sales slow it will be available for crowns.

    The Place by Tony Walsh Please Read
    This is the place in the North West of England

    It’s ace, it’s the best and the songs that we sing

    From the stands, from our bands set the whole planet shaking

    Our inventions are legends! There’s nowt we can’t make and



    So we make brilliant music. We make brilliant bands

    We make goals that make souls leap from seats in the stands

    And we make things from steel and we make things from cotton

    And we make people laugh, take the mick summat rotten



    And we make you at home and we make you feel welcome

    And we make summat happen, we can’t seem to help it

    And if you’re looking for history then yes, we’ve a wealth

    But the Manchester way is to make it yourself



    And make us a record, a new number one

    And make us a brew while you’re up, love. Go on!

    And make us feel proud that you’re winning the league

    And make us sing louder and make us believe it



    that this is the place that has helped shape the world

    And that this the place where a Manchester girl

    Name of Emmeline Pankhurst from the streets of Moss Side

    Led a Suffragette City with sisterhood pride



    And this is the place with appliance of science

    We’re on it, atomic, we strut with defiance

    In the face of a challenge we always stand tall

    Mancunians in union delivered it all



    Such as housing and libraries, and health, education

    And unions and co-ops, the first railway station

    So we’re sorry! Bear with us! We invented commuters!

    But we hope you forgive us – we invented computers!



    And this is the place Henry Royce strolled with Rolls

    And we’ve rocked and we’ve rolled with our own Northern Soul

    And so this is the place to do business, then dance

    Where go-getters and goal setters know they’ve a chance



    And this is the place where we first played as kids

    And me Mam lived and died here, she loved it she did

    And this is the place where our folks came to work

    Where they struggled in puddles, they hurt in the dirt



    And they built us a city. They built us these towns

    And they coughed on the cobbles to the deafening sound

    Of the steaming machines and the screaming of slaves

    They were scheming for greatness, they dreamed to their graves



    And they left us a spirit, they left us a vibe

    The Mancunian Way to survive and to thrive

    And to work and to build, to connect and create and

    Greater Manchester’s greatness is keeping it great



    And so this is the place now we’ve kids of our own

    Some are born here, some drawn here but we all call it home

    And they’ve covered the cobbles, but they’ll never defeat

    All the dreamers and schemers who still teem through these streets



    Because this is a place that has been through some hard times

    Oppressions, recessions, depressions and dark times

    But we keep fighting back with Greater Manchester spirit

    Northern grit, northern wit in Greater Manchester’s lyrics



    And there’s hard times again in these streets of our city

    But we won’t take defeat and we don’t want your pity

    Because this a place where we stand strong together

    With a smile on our face, Mancunians Forever



    And we’ve got this* as the place where a team with a dream (*Forever Manchester)

    Can get funding and something to help with their scheme

    Because this is the place that understands your grand plans

    We don’t do No Can Do, we just stress Yes We Can!



    Forever Manchester’s a charity for people round ‘ere

    You can fundraise, donate. You can be a volunteer

    You can live local, give local. We can honestly say

    We do charity differently, that Mancunian Way



    And we fund local kids, and we fund local teams

    We support local dreamers to work for their dreams

    We support local groups and the great work they do

    So can you …help us help… local people like you?



    Because this is the place in our hearts, in our homes

    Because this is the place that’s a part of our bones

    ‘Cos Greater Manchester gives us such strength from the fact

    That this is the place. We should give something back.

    Always remember. Never forget. Forever Manchester.

    Or are they just slow to update their websites? I see it on amazon.com ...

    It's just an expansion
    This extends ESO to Morrowind. Like a new area to go to for your existing characters.

    It also adds a new class that you can start in One Tamriel and or Morrowind areas.

    So, if I understand what you're saying... if you know someone who needs a new ESO account right now (I've actually got *two* who I was planning to introduce to the game...), they should be getting the ESO: Tamriel Unlimited game for $29.99 and the Morrowind Upgrade for $39.99 (a total of $69.98), instead of the ESO: Morrowind Digital Edition for $59.99? Or they can save $10 if they want to wait until June 6 to start playing the game?

    It is a full blown expansion.

    Maybe the devs have not delivered much in DLCs as they were working on this major update. Hopefully it adds quite a bit to the game.

    This also follows the B2P model that ESO is designed around.

    Pricing:

    Deluxe Digital is $79
    Standard Edition is $59

    Add on for current ESO owners
    Deluxe $59
    Standard $39

    My question is, does the Morrowind Expansion have ESO Gold with DLCs or just ESO standard edition for content

    Pricing wise, I may get the deluxe for $20 more.

    Since morrowind is introducing a new class, i think the crown store should have class change tokens. I don't really care if it resets all my class skills and i have to re-level them, or if they're 5000 crowns. I have a character who's PERFECT for the warden class, and I'd buy class change tokens if they were introduced. Just refund the skillpoints... please let me keep those.
