Zenimax are changing how you unlock Morrowind with the launch of Summerset and Update 18 coming this summer. At present, you have to buy The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited (the base game) and Morrowind to access all that Tamriel has to offer, but when Summerset launches, this will change.
Some of these changes are already going on and others will be arriving upon the release of Summerset, but as of right now, if you purchase The Elder Scrolls Online, you will get both the base game and Morrowind.
What does that mean for everybody else, however? Well, if you already own Morrowind, nothing. If you own the base game only, you will soon be able to access the PvP Battlegrounds that launched with Morrowind, without needing to purchase anything. The Morrowind zone and story content will be available to buy from the Crown Store, or through pre-purchasing the Summerset Digital Collector’s Edition (for a limited time), and it will also be folded into the ESO Plus membership along with all of ESO’s DLC. You will also be able to purchase the Warden class in the store separate to this. This all happens when Summerset launches.
You can read more about the specifics in the official announcement post.
This is a great move. It gets really convoluted when MMORPGs add more and more content that you have to buy separately, so this is a good way to do it. It may annoy some who already bought Morrowind separately, and assumedly, if you only own the base game and want to unlock both Morrowind and the Warden through the Crown Store it will cost a little more, but overall it seems like a decent way to open things up a little more and maybe increase the population of PvP Battlegrounds.
