Morrowind goes gold

Bethesda's ambitious role-playing game The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind is complete and will soon be available in stores.


Bethesda has announced that The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, its ambitious role-playing game, has gone gold and will be available in stores next month. The game is set in a medieval fantasy world inhabited by a wide range of playable races, creatures, and monsters. It features an advanced 3D graphics engine, detailed environments and characters, and a nonlinear single-player storyline that includes a variety of different quests and subquests. The game also includes a complete world-building tool that will let players design, create, and use custom items, monsters, quests, and areas.

"We know the gaming community has been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Morrowind for a long time," said Todd Howard, project leader for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. "We were able to remain true to our goal of providing the deepest, most cutting-edge role-playing game you can buy. We're sure everyone will enjoy the game as much as we enjoyed creating it."

Morrowind will be available in stores the first week of May for an approximate retail price of $49.99. For more information, take a look at our in-depth previews of the game.
