ZeniMax Online has announced that a Morrowind expansion will be coming to The Elder Scrolls Online.

ZeniMax Online Studios has announced a massive Morrowind expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online, adding more than 30 hours of gameplay when it arrives on all platforms on June 6.

The expansion takes place 700 years prior to the events of The Elder Scrolls III.

"With the same geographic footprint as The Elder Scrolls III, the island of Vvardenfell includes all key points of interest from the classic game," the announcement reads. "Players will visit legendary locales throughout Vvardenfell, from the docks of Seyda Neen to the volcanic Ashlands, to dense forests of towering mushrooms, all the way through to the wizard enclave of Sadrith Mora."

The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind adds the new zone of Vvardenfell along with a new player class, "a mysterious new Trial (12-player dungeon)," and a new 4v4v4 PvP mode. The new class - The Warden - "lets you harness nature-based magic and introduces a devastating new combat ally - the War Bear."

Players who already own The Elder Scrolls Online can scoop it up for $39.99, while new players can get the entire game, which includes Tamriel Unlimited and Morrowind, for $59.99. According to the announcement, new players can jump right into the Morrowind content, bypassing everything else.

"But don't worry, ESO vets," the post reads. "Your high-level characters are welcome. Utilizing the power of last year's One Tamriel update, players of all levels will find appropriately scaled challenges from the moment they step foot in the new zone. So you can drop what you're doing, head to Seyda Neen in Vvardenfell, and start the new content. It's truly a new Chapter for everyone."

Morrowind releases on PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on June 6, 2017.
