We already knew that the long-awaited Morrowind expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online would finally land in our laps on June 6. If you were looking to plan your Vvardenfell experience right down to the minute, though, then ZeniMax Online Studios just released some information that you might find helpful.
The launch is, as we know, a global event, which means that servers are going live worldwide at the same time. (It's no fun to wait while your overseas friends get to hop on the boat without you.) You'll be able to head to Vvardenfell as soon as the clock strikes 5:00am (US Eastern Time).
Players will of course be able to pick up the game beforehand, whether it's just retrieving a pre-order or purchasing it early. In North America, you can pick up a copy of the game on the evening of June 5 starting at 9:00pm US Eastern Time, and in Europe the game will be available as soon as retail stores open on June 6. However, even if you get the game early, the launch follows a maintenance period during which servers will be down entirely in order to implement necessary updates for Vvardenfell.
Whether you're in it for the nostalgia or looking to explore a wholly new area, be ready; Morrowind is going to take the world by storm as soon as June 6 hits.
