Bethesda Softworks today announced that it has begun manufacturing The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Game of the Year (GotY) edition for the Xbox and expects the title to be in stores early next week. The Morrowind GotY includes the original Morrowind, along with content from the two Morrowind expansions: Tribunal and Bloodmoon. This new product will allow gamers to continue their existing games of Morrowind and experience the new quests and areas offered by the expansions.

Also expected at retail next week is the Morrowind GotY edition for PC, which includes the original game plus both expansions at a price of $29.99, and The Morrowind Prophecies GotY Edition, a 400+ page hint book covers both the PC and Xbox versions of all three games and includes maps, creature info, walkthroughs for every quest, and more.

Morrowind was the best-selling and most highly acclaimed RPG for Xbox in 2002, earning Game of the Year and Best RPG awards from numerous publications and sites, including Official Xbox Magazine, Gamespot, Team Xbox, and Xbox Evolved. Over a year after its initial release, Morrowind was ranked among the Top 10 Best Selling Xbox games in May through August of this year - a feat only matched by Halo (Source: The NPD Group / NPD Funworld® / TRSTS®).

An epic, open-ended single-player RPG, Morrowind allows you to create and play any kind of character imaginable. You can choose to follow the main storyline and find the source of the evil blight that plagues the land, or set off on your own to explore strange locations and develop your character based on their actions throughout the game. Featuring stunning 3D graphics, open-ended gameplay, and an incredible level of detail and interactivity, Morrowind offers a gameplay experience like no other.

In Tribunal, you journey to the capital city of Morrowind, called Mournhold, to meet the other two god-kings of Morrowind, Almalexia and Sotha Sil. Your
journey will lead you to the Clockwork City of Sotha Sil and massive, epic-sized dungeons, where strange and deadly creatures await you, including goblins, lich lords, and the mysterious Fabricants.

Bloodmoon takes you to the frozen Island of Solstheim where you’ll experience snow, blizzards, and new creatures, including frost trolls, ice minions, and wolves…just to name a few. You’ll have a choice of stories to follow and have the opportunity to defend the colony, take control over how the colony is built up, and eliminate the werewolves. Or, you can decide to join the werewolves and become one of them, opening up a whole new style of gameplay.
