    It's about time! I heard about the Game of the Year Edition awhile back, but no confirmation on the content. Hopefully, it fixes the minor bugs, but even if it doesn't I'll be picking it up.

    What's up with the May 12th date?

    Nice, very nice. I already have the PC expansion (and will be getting Bloodmoon) and with my new computer Im pretty much PC only with Morrowind at this point but its great news for those wanting more. It was the best possible solution to adding the XP packs and hopefully getting some bug fixes out of there.

    Hmmm. If it fixes the crashes, I'll probably pick it up. I wonder if that sort of thing is a priority for Bethesda Softworks...

    Now I have some more motivation to go back and finish off Dagoth Ur. [​IMG]

    Guess the OXM rumor mole guy sometimes really knows his stuff. He mentioned this possibility a few months ago. Glad to see it's a reality.

    I wonder if it's going to include the "sounds of the bitter coast" upgrade? Wasn't that some sort of improved sounds when you were in the swampier areas on the eastern shore of Vvardenfell??? Any PC guys know what I'm talking about?

    For you guys that already have these expansions, how BIG are they, area wise, compared to Vvardenfell island?

    Thanks for the info Rom. [​IMG]

    My fingers are crossed for the sounds 3.0 you mentioned. I can't deny it; I'm a sound effects junkie. [​IMG]

    Although, being a user mod, it's doubtful.

    I must pray, pray, praaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay for a bug fix. I'm really glad they'll let you use your old save, as that's the deciding point for me. If they can my save where I've turned Balmora upside down with the command human glitch to only crash once or twice a day, I'll be singing their praises for a long time to come.

    I know it's a long shot since you really weren't supposed to be able to move 100 NPCs, but maybe they can at least get it to where my old save runs without ever crashing.

    Anyone know if they're redoing the engine? The textures, draw distance, and framerate were pretty dismal a year ago, so I hope they get a bit more out of the Xbox this time.

    I'm bummed about this. I just bought the regular edition. Oh, well. I guess I can always sell that off.

    How will this work...I just bought the original edition 2 weeks ago. Is the new one going to be competitively priced or will it be 60-80bucks (CAD)?

    I don't mind paying more for the bug fixes and all the new features, plus the new add ons...just kinda a bummer.

    I guess we can simply wait and see.

    All in all, the game is amazing and I will still buy it for all the upgrades.

    Since they're adding two $20-$30 expansions to a $20 game, they likely might charge $50, although I remember the original morrowind being $40 at several places when it was released.

    From the FAQ:

    Are there any features not included?
    It does not include the journal quest sorting or placing map notes, because they are not console-friendly features.


    OH PUH-LEEZE

    How does the fighting work in Morrowind? That is the main thing that held me off, the game looks amazing, and I used to play text based MUD's etc, so this may be right up my alley.
    I did watch a video preview once though, where the fighting was "live" - I would have preferred turnbased actually - I could not stand the thougth of getting stuck because I suck at the fighting...
