Bethesda first announced The Elder Scrolls: Blades during E3 2018. Following the franchise, the game features a first-person perspective and combat including melee combat and spellcasting. Furthermore, players can customize and level up their characters like previous Elder Scrolls games. According to Todd Howard from Bethesda, the dungeons of the game are hand-crafted then procedurally generated.
The game will feature three main modes, namely Abyss, Arena and Town. Abyss brings about a roguelike feel where players travel through dungeons to gather experience and gold while doing quests as well. Arena features multiplayer PvP where players can duel each other. Finally, the Town is the main hub in the game. Players can accept quests and interact with NPC’s in the town area.
The Elder Scrolls: Blades will be the first in the franchise to launch on the Android and iOS. The game can even be played on portrait, a rarity among RPG games on the mobile phone. However, fans should not be worried as the game will eventually launch for the PC, consoles and VR. How the controls change from mobile to other platforms is currently unknown.
Currently, fans can sign up for a chance to play during the early access. For more information, you can check out The Elder Scrolls: Blades page on the official site or check out the Twitter page.
