As we inch ever closer to the release of The Elder Scrolls Online’s new expansion, the flood of trailers keeps on rollin’. Case in point: a new Morrowind Assassins video full of cloak-and-dagger action and references to the political interplay between the three Great Houses of Vvardenfell.
The latest trailer is all about the underhanded maneuvering among House Hlaalu, House Redoran, and House Telvanni, and where the assassins of the Morag Tong fit in:
“In Morrowind, nothing is as it seems. The cut-throat world of Dunmer politics overshadows everything in Vvardenfell; the constant scheming and battles for influence between the Great Houses puts Morrowind in a constant state of treachery.”
The release mentions that players will have to balance their allegiance to the three Great Houses carefully, as friend and foe can be difficult to ascertain in the political realm of Morrowind. You can check out the sneak-filled trailer below.
This is all very vague in terms of overall mechanics and how House allegiances will actually factor in or if they factor in at all. Despite that, the trailer itself is incredibly atmospheric and genuinely does a great job setting up the scene for all of the backstabbing – literal and figurative – that’s inherent in the realm of Vvardenfell.
