New Elder Scrolls Online trailer spotlights Morrowind’s guild of assassins

Elder Scrolls fans who played the original Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind might remember that one of the factions they could join in that game was a sect of honorable assassins called the Morag Tong. Well, as ZeniMax has revealed in the latest trailer for The Elder Scrolls Online’s upcoming Morrowind expansion, it turns out the Morag Tong will be making an encore appearance.

The trailer, which is titled “Assassins and the Great Houses,” briefly runs through the various Great Houses that rule over the region of Morrowind, Hlaalu, Redoran, and Telvanni (Elder Scrolls III players likely remember these Houses as well), showing that the members of each House aren’t above using deception, treachery, and even murder to get what they want. The Morag Tong, meanwhile, serves as a sort of neutral equalizer, assassinating pretty much any individual as long as the cause is just…and the price is right. Going by what is shown in the trailer, it looks like Morrowind players will be able to join the Morag Tong at some point, though it also looks like they could make enemies of the noble assassins if they aren’t careful.

The part which the Morag Tong have to play in Morrowind’s political scene will be fully unveiled when the expansion launches on June 6 for PC and consoles.
