Elder Scrolls Online is opening up PvP battlegrounds to everyone, whether you’ve bought Morrowind or not

With Summerset on the horizon, ZeniMax is shifting around just what goes into Elder Scrolls Online’s base package, according to a dev post published this morning.

For starters, the Tamriel Unlimited name that’s been used for the base game since it went sub-optional is being dropped, replaced with the Morrowind tag. “This means that moving forward, if you purchase this new base game – The Elder Scrolls Online, not The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited – it will include the Morrowind Chapter,” says the studio. Of course, if you’re preordering Summerset, you get Morrowind for free anyway.

Much of Morrowind’s content, including the zone and the Warden class, will move to the cash shop when Summerset launches on May 21st. Do note that means you can buy and play the Warden without paying for the entirety of Morrowind (or vice versa).

PvP battlegrounds, however, will be granted to everyone for free, whether you ever owned Morrowind or not.

“We want everybody to be able to enjoy the fast-paced action of the PvP Battlegrounds, so we’re making them part of ESO’s base game. This means that when ESO: Summerset and Update 18 launch, you’ll be able to queue for and play Battlegrounds, even if you don’t own ESO: Morrowind! Even better, with Update 18, we’re also introducing new daily PvP Battlegrounds rewards, giving you even more reasons to enjoy the 4v4v4 arenas.”

Smart move but they need to separate premades and solo queues to make it fun.
