Morrowind Expansion Goes Gold

Extending the fantabulous Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind is always a good thing.  Killing Werewolves is always a great thing.  Blended, they become two great tastes that taste great together! 


Obviously this means we just received word from Bethesda that the latest expansion, Bloodmoon, has gone gold and should be on store shelves in a matter of weeks.  Read on for the full press release...

The Elder Scrolls III: Bloodmoon Goes Gold

Hunt Werewolves - or Become One - in Expansion to Award-Winning Morrowind 

May 23, 2003 (Rockville, MD) - Bethesda Softworks® announced today that The Elder Scrolls III: Bloodmoon(tm) - the expansion pack for its critically acclaimed RPG, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind® for PC - has gone to gold master and will ship to stores the first week of June. In Bloodmoon, you'll help build a mining colony and face the threat of werewolves, or decide to become a werewolf and indulge your thirst for the hunt. Either way, Bloodmoon offers a completely different experience from anything you've seen in Morrowind.

Bloodmoon takes you to the frozen Island of Solstheim where the Empire is establishing a new mining colony - a venture being threatened by the prophecy of the Bloodmoon and rumors of werewolves. Your journey north from Vvardenfell by ship will bring you to a whole new world, where the ashlands and rainy coasts of Morrowind give way to forests and hills covered with snow and ice. In the huge wilderness of Solstheim you'll experience snow, blizzards, and new creatures, including frost trolls, ice minions, and wolves...just to name a few.

You'll have a choice of stories to follow and have the opportunity to defend the colony, take control over how the colony is built up, and eliminate the werewolves. Or, you can decide to join the werewolves and become one of them, opening up a whole new style of gameplay. Bloodmoon can be played by any character at any time, whether you are just starting, in the middle of, or have already finished the main quest of Morrowind and/or the Tribunal(tm) expansion.

In addition, all of the content from Bloodmoon will be available in the recently announced Morrowind GotY edition, allowing Morrowind Xbox gamers to experience all of the content of the two PC expansions, Tribunal and Bloodmoon, with their existing save games and characters from Morrowind.
