Zengamers "Cenk" send us a note about that they previewed the latest build of Bethesda Softwork’s upcoming RPG, Morrowind. Here is a clip from the preview:

"The beauty of Morrowind is that there is so much to discover, so much to see. With over 300 hand crafted dungeons, you can literally wander for days in real time and still have plenty to do. I found perhaps 10 such dungeons in my travels, and came out of one with a golden helmet worth 15000 gold! No merchant that I have found can even afford to pay me for it yet! I found Imperial Legion Fortresses, coastal hamlets, and cities that I had no business being in just by wandering, and man did I love it". Full preview here.
