Lots of game-altering changes coming this fall!

http://www.elderscrollsonline.com/en-us/news/post/2016/08/23/gamescom-2016-recap-update-12-and-one-tamriel

Quote
ONE TAMRIEL

One Tamriel arrives with Update 12 on the PTS early next week and live this October, and ESO will never be the same. With One Tamriel, the game content in ESO will no longer be gated by your character's level. Right out of the tutorial you'll have the freedom to go anywhere in Tamriel and play any content, in any order, just like other Elder Scrolls games. Our unique battle-leveling system will automatically scale and balance your character to the content, no matter where you go!

Finding or forming a group will be easier than ever since we're also lifting the alliance restrictions in open world zones. (Of course, PvP areas will still be alliance-based.) This means you'll be able to group with anyone, from any alliance, at any time. High-level players will even be able to group with friends who are new to ESO; anyone below Champion 160 will scale so everyone can adventure together. If you prefer to adventure alone, that's ok too. Every zone has been modified to add world bosses and ensure a mixture of content for solo and group play is available, and all of our dungeons now offer both Normal and Veteran modes, so there will always be something for you, no matter what your play style might be!

CRAGLORN

Craglorn, which was originally introduced in 2014 as a group-focused Adventure Zone, is being re-designed so it will no longer require a group to play. Now you'll find that all the main story quests can be completed solo, and the remaining group content can be completed with as little as two players. We want to make sure you can have fun in the zone by yourself, but if you choose, it's also your go-to destination for exciting group content!

ITEMIZATION

For One Tamriel, we've standardized itemization and rewards in all zones, so they feel more like the items you currently receive from DLC game packs. Item sets will now be tied to specific zones and dungeons, and they'll automatically be scaled to your level. Veteran mode dungeons will now guarantee Monster Mask rewards, and new, streamlined Undaunted Pledges will be available to players up to 3 times per day, offering Monster Masks and other exciting rewards. We'll explain all the itemization changes in more detail in the coming weeks.

DUELING

Another highly-anticipated feature we're introducing in Update 12 is the ability to challenge another player to a duel! Test your PvP skills against your friends, or try out new builds before diving into battle in Cyrodiil or a dungeon. We'll be giving you more information on our dueling system next week at PAX West 2016.

HOLIDAY EVENTS

Holiday celebrations are coming to Tamriel, and you're invited! Beginning this fall, you'll be able to celebrate some of Tamriel's most exciting holidays with your friends and receive special rewards! We'll kick things off with the Witches Festival in October, and wrap up the year with the New Life Festival. Check back for more details as we get closer to each event!

CROWN CRATES

Toward the end of November, we'll be giving you a chance to receive some very special items with the introduction of Crown Crates. These Crates, available in the Crown Store for just 400 crowns, will contain a randomized selection of useful consumables, and offer a chance to obtain rare and unique cosmetic items or mounts, including some previously-retired mounts, costumes, pets, and limited-time offers that are no longer available in the Crown Store. Crates will have different themes throughout the year, giving you the chance to obtain new, extremely rare items.

In the event you receive a mount, pet, costume or personality that you already own, you'll be awarded special Crown Gems in its place. These Gems can be used to purchase other collectible items from the current Crown Crate season that you'd prefer to have instead.

All the content in Update 12, including One Tamriel, will be free for all players. And remember, this September will be the perfect time for new players to jump into the game with the launch of The Elder Scrolls Online: Gold Edition. This new product includes the base game in addition to our first four DLC game packs: Imperial City, Orsinium, Thieves Guild, and Dark Brotherhood. If you already own ESO, we'll be offering the Guilds and Glory DLC bundle in the in-game Crown Store so you can purchase these DLC game packs at just 5500 crowns.

ESO is also going 4K for PS4 Pro (and "increased graphical fidelity" for those on a 1080p TV with a PS4 Pro):

"Last night at the Sony PlayStation 4 Pro announcement event in New York City, it was revealed that The Elder Scrolls Online will be one of the first games to support the new Sony PlayStation 4 Pro. When the PS4 Pro launches on November 10, you’ll be able to play ESO immediately in native 4K resolution! If you play ESO on PlayStation 4 Pro with a 1080p HD television, you will experience increased graphical fidelity; if you use a 4K monitor, the game will automatically run in 4K."



(This video won't mean shit if you don't have a 4K TV or monitor.)

Morrowind Expansion announced for June 6, 2017!



http://ca.ign.com/articles/2017/01/31/morrowind-coming-to-the-elder-scrolls-online-release-date-announced

Quote
The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind will take place 700 years before the events of The Elder Scrolls III and will include the same “key points of interest” found in that version of Morrowind, allowing players to visit Vvardenfell, Seyda Neen, the Ashlands, an under-construction Vivec City, and more.

Morrowind will also include a new class, the Warden, allowing players to “harness nature-based magic” and including a new combat ally, the War Bear. The expansion will also include Battlegrounds, a new 4 vs. 4 vs. 4 PvP mode.

Bethesda will offer a number of ways to purchase The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, including a physical or digital standard edition for $59.99. Existing players will be able to unlock Morrowind content for $39.99. A Digital Collector’s Edition will also be available for $79.99 (or $59.99 for existing players who want to upgrade), which includes a grey War Bear for the Warden, an armored War Horse, a Dwarden Spider pet, a Morag Tong converter, and exclusive character emotes.

A physical Collector’s Edition will also be available for $99.99 on all platforms. In addition to a copy of the game, the set includes a 12-inch Dwarven Colossus statue, a Nayru’s Journal art book featuring concept art, a map of Morrowind, and a special metallic case.

The Elder Scrolls Online is getting a massive new update. Called The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, developer ZeniMax Online Studios says it features more than 30 hours of gameplay and the addition of the largest geographic zone since its launch in 2014.

Thanks to a sweeping gameplay revision issued earlier this year, new players can start the game and move directly into the Morrowind expansion, which takes place largely on the island of Vvardenfell, without having to complete any legacy content. The update launches simultaneously for Windows PC and Mac, as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, on June 6.

Apparently Morrowind is a "starter zone" as well.. meaning that if you start a new character, you can choose which path to start out on.. either right away with the wailing prison/Molog Bal stuff or on the Morrowind track. Pretty cool. I may do that with a new roll just to try out the Warden class, as well.

How does starting in Morrowwind affect the rest of the game? Or is there not much difference?

I just read about One Tamriel. I'm not sure I like it. I liked the wonder of having to level and the linear nature of going from zone to zone.
Now apparently I can go wherever I want and to whatever faction I want right off the bat.

Yeah, it's actually great and makes it a lot more like the other TES games, tbh.

I dunno. I'm not a huge MMO guy so I liked the idea of having to progress through the game. Plus there's the excitement of not being able to go to other faction's areas until you actually beat the game.

It just kind of loses something for me if I can start out in one alliance and immediately warp to the last zone of another alliance and it scales to my level.

ESO is free to play from April 11 to 18 on all platforms! Look for it in the demos or free trials section on XBO or PS4.

I think for this you have to let go of that notion that areas are "last zones" - think more about where the quests go and no necessarily that The Rift is the highest level place for the Pact. Once you let that go and treat it more like a traditional Elder Scrolls game you'll have a lot more fun, I think. :)

I think I'll just play and pretend I can't warp to wherever I want to go. Just treat it like the last time I played through.
