The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind is 20 years old, and to celebrate that, the Morrowind TES3MP multiplayer tool has been updated to merge it with OpenMW VR (which you can see in action minus the multiplayer above), which means that, yes, now you can play Morrowind with your friends in VR. Even if you don’t have a VR headset yourself, you can join players who do on the same server.
Although playing in VR means you can see the position of your hands – which are customized to your species, if you prefer to have blurry khajiit hands, for example – other players won’t be able to. No hello or middle finger, unfortunately.
The open-source Morrowind OpenMW engine had its first public release in 2008, replacing Morrowind’s Gamebryo engine with something more robust and moddable that modders and tweakers could rely on. The OpenMW TES3MP fork is the perfect example of this, making Morrowind multiplayer playable since 2017. Another fork resulted in OpenMW VR a few years ago, and now the two have been combined as of TES3MP version 0.8.1.
To play Morrowind multiplayer in VR you’ll need the original game, of course – although OpenMW replaces the engine, it still uses the original assets – then follow this quick start guide for TES3MP. You’ll want to download TES3MP VR 0.8.1 for playing in VR, or TES3MP 0.8.1 for the non-VR version, which whoever is hosting a server will also need.
