The Elders Scrolls III: Morrowind was critically acclaimed upon its PC release, so much so that the Xbox version of the game, due out this October 18th, is one of the most hotly anticipated RPGs on the console. Soon though, Bethesda Softworks will turn its attention back to PC owners for the release of The Elder Scrolls III: Tribunal, due out in Europe this November 29th, with localised French and German versions scheduled for early 2003.
Tribunal sees a ruthless new king on the throne of Morrowind, with an aging god sunk further into madness. The chaotic atmosphere breeds deadly assassins after your blood and a quest for the player to challenge the throne and journey to and from locations like capital city Mournhold and the Clockwork City of Sotha Sil, and, obviously, through dungeons which make the average medieval torture complex sound like a five star hotel.
Project Leader Todd Howard tells of the team's enthusiasm for the expansion. "We've always wanted to take you on an adventure to Mournhold to meet the other two god-kings, Almalexia and Sotha Sil," he says. "It's an awesome city, and the quests there are some of the best yet."
