System Specs Have Been Revealed for the Elder Scrolls: Online Morrowind Expansion

Morrowind Expansion

Ever since Bethesda announced the Morrowind expansion for their MMORPG Elder Scrolls Online back in January, there has been a tangible level of hype for both veteran players of the Elder Scrolls series and more recent subscribers to the game. This is perfectly understandable, as the upcoming expansion will allow players to revisit Vvardenfell, the land that was first brought to life 15 years ago for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

With only one month to go until the Morrowind expansion is available, developer ZeniMax Online has revealed the minimum and recommended system requirements for players looking to run the game on PC or Mac.  “With The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind launching in just a few weeks, we want to make sure you’ll be ready to dive straight into the action,” notes ZeniMax on ESO’s website.
