Celebrating the 15th anniversary of The Elder Scrolls III! It’s considered by many to be the best in the franchise, but how well does Morrowind (and its expansions Tribunal and Bloodmoon) hold up fifteen years later?
Morrowind was designed with an open-ended free-form style of gameplay in mind, with less of an emphasis on the game’s main plot than its predecessors. This choice received mixed reviews by some members of the gaming press, though such feelings were tempered by reviewers’ appreciation of Morrowind’s expansive and detailed game world. Despite that, Morrowind received both critical and commercial success, winning various awards, including game of the year, as well as selling over four million sales worldwide by 2005.The game spawned two expansion packs, known as Tribunal and Bloodmoon. Both were eventually repackaged into a full set and titled Morrowind: Game of the Year Edition, which released in October 2003.
