    So if there is an expansion Mid Year does that mean no quarterly DLC for April? Homestead won't keep me fully engaged for 5 months plus just had a 5 month period of no new content. Events only last about a week so for someone that has been playing since Beta I would really love something new to do till June.

    Although Mass Effect is out March so probably not a bad idea to have nothing but a event around the birthday!

    Yeah, this rather bothers me too. They have made Homestead completely unappealing and it won't keep me occupied at all. I was saving up crowns and looking forward to a DLC this summer, and unfortunately I probably won't be able to afford the cost of the expansion for a long time since I just had to use my savings for some emergency dental work.

    Oh well. May have to find something else to play on occasion to keep the boredom at bay. I wouldn't be surprised if this becomes the new way to deliver content and crown store DLCs stop altogether.

    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.

    Yep, gonna need class-change tokens. 12 character slots are more than enough - just let us change classes already.

    And since we're getting past the whole alliance war base game (finally), it would also be nice to have alliance-change tokens (or some way to do that in game). Conscripting characters into one alliance or another from the start doesn't really make sense anymore - maybe just do away with that all together and replace it with a quest to choose your alliance.

    I hope the new class works out in end-game, and that the other classes have received some attention (and sub-classes like stamplar). It would be swell if some sort of balance was achieved between the classes.

    Will there be homes in Morrowind? If I can get a Telvanni mushroom mansion, I'm saving my gold/crowns for that.

    Physical gold edition owner, want to buy the digital collectors upgrade on the psstore EU.
    Only thing I can pre-order are the standard edition and collectors edition but no upgrades are available
    They are mentioned in the store but they're not available for purchase, it says I don't own Tamriel Unlimited

    psstore NA can pre-order the upgrade without problems so the EU should be able to do the same

    I want this fixed asap

    How will this work for shared gamers on separate consoles in the same house?

    Example.
    My husband purchased ps4 and the game. Originally I played a character on his account. We decided to get a second ps4 for me. I can play ESO without having to purchase a second ESO. I did have to go in and buy my own 'Imperial Edition' for any race any alliance from the crown store. He was a ESO plus member. Initially I purchased Imperial City and Orsinium from the crown store before getting my own ESO plus subscription.

    When the chapter is released that He installs on the base ESO game will I have access to it as well? If not how will this be accomplished? I'm not against purchasing a second copy of the expansion er chapter. I just need to know how its done since its not available in the crown store.

    Thanks.

    My guess would be plastic or "polyresin" as marketing departments like to call it now - much like the Molag Bal statue that came with the Physical Imperial Edition. Hopefully significantly better quality though.

    Any idea when or how we get our preorder codes for physical collectors edition? When I pre-ordered the collectors of ESO originally came with a code in the receipt that I could put in early. But I ordered this from amazon so I'm wondering how this will work?

    For anyone having trouble finding the upgrade on PS4 it was not coming up using the search for me only the full game versions were. I had to go games then preorders and manually search through that list to find it.

    You're doing it all wrong...

    We already have so many alternative truths to deal with in 2017..Have some mercy on us poor rubes, I mean if we're going to split hairs over the difference between DLC, Future Content, Expansion and Totally New Thing That Happens To Be Exactly The Same, Oh look a Bear... Now I've been distracted, quick pivot!

    Thank you for building new stuff, but I dare say you are playing fast and loose with our understanding and it angers me.

    The items from the Discovery Pack will be available to use once Morrowind releases on June 6.
    A quick note and a couple of questions:
    1. If the above quote is indeed the case, then you might want to reiterate and clarify this on your FAQ-page, as it could easily be interpreted to mean that players will get the Discovery content immediately:
    The Discovery Pack contains the following in-game items, which you'll automatically receive when pre-ordering any edition of Morrowind:
    2. Just in case the intial quote referred to the Collector's Edition Digital content (and not Discovery), and to clarify further: When exactly do players gain access to the respective digital content? (Dicovery and CE Digital - one on pre-order placement, the other on release. Both on release. Both on pre-order?)

    3. Say I pre-order the physical CE.
    Will I be able to bind the keys of its Morrowind edition (and the digital content packages), to ESO on my Steam account? Or would doing so require me to purchase exclusively through Steam?

    4. Will ESO:Morrowind
    be treated as a standalone on Steam? (seperate entry in library)

    5. Will retailers be given Discovery Pack keys
    to send to buyers of the physical edition(s) when they buy them, will this be moot given the initial quote, or will they be unavailable until the box is in the customers hands?

    6. Say my order is delayed on launch-day; will buying the "Morrowind Upgrade" package prevent me from applying the CE key for the extra digital goodies? Would I have to request a refund of the former before activating the latter, or would the CE simply count for just the items at that point?

    7. Can the base ESO game contained within the physical package be activated on Steam, or will this still necessitate buying either the UT or Gold editions directly via Steam?

    So, in lieu of official replies here, I went ahead and poked Support regarding the questions listed above, and thought I might as well answer the questions here as well now that I've got a reply:

    #1, 2, and 5 above (Discovery Pack availability):
    All digital content will not be available before launch, this includes Discovery Pack and CE Digital content.

    #3, 4, and 7 above (Steam Integration):

    Physical editions can be unlocked through either Steam or the Account page.
    This also applies to the base-game in the CE
    In other words, if you don't have the game unlocked on Steam currently, you should (from what I understand) be able to unlock it on Steam using the base-ESO key found in the Physical Morrowind CE, and you should likewise also be able to unlock Morrowind on Steam using the key from the physical edition.

    #6 above (or "I'm impatient, will upgrading to base-Morrowind if my physical edition is late prevent me from adding the CE content later?"):
    They couldn't confirm whether it'd be possible to upgrade from "base" Morrowind to CE Morrowind.
    (Note: From experience, it should be possible to refund the previous edition and then activate the CE after, as that exact scenario occured in my case, back during the original games launch with the Imperial Edition)
    Update: As it's only possible to have one instance of Morrowind unlocked on our accounts at a time, one can not upgrade from a more basic Morrowind version to a higher grade one (i.e. from base to CE).

    Santiak,

    Thank you for your help in getting some of these questions answered. While I don't doubt the validity of your responses, it would still be great to get official ZOS word on these issues/questions as support staff may not always have the [correct] answer and just answer to the best of their ability.

    Thank you again for your hard work for the community!

    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.

    Actually it's not in the crown store is what I was referring to. He asked about ESO Plus being able to work for the expansion, it's not going to be in the crown stores at all.

    Hello, I'm back, after many years, and this Expansion has got my attention and revived the flames of passion for this wonderful game.

    But because english is not my first language, I'm going to need some help and clarification from you guys, an official answer would be great.

    My problem here is that in this link here it reads:

    "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."

    Does this means that this Morrowind Expansion includes ALL the previous DLCs and the base game????

    Thanks in advance!!

    No. We assume that it does not include the DLC, only the base game content. That is the "original ESO content".

    No, it just includes the original base game. DLC game packs will need to be acquired separately through the Crown Store.
