The Elder Scrolls: Blades Announced for iOS & Android

Jun 13, 2018

During the E3 gaming show this past weekend, it was announced that The Elder Scrolls: Blades is coming to both iOS and Android. This means you are about to get Elder Scrolls on your smartphone, and it was a huge announcement from Bethesda that has many people excited.

When it comes to Elder Scrolls, there has not been any mobile game released for the series as of yet. That is about to change this fall when The Elder Scrolls: Blades is released for both mobile platforms. We have all of the latest news about The Elder Scrolls: Blades so keep reading to learn more about this huge mobile gaming announcement.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades Mobile Game Coming in Fall 2018

The announcement from Bethesda is certainly good news for fans of the Elder Scrolls series of games. This is one of the biggest fantasy role-playing franchises out there, and this new mobile game is going to follow the same overall format. In fact, Todd Howard, the game director is saying that this mobile game will have console-quality graphics. It is going to be a very big first-person role-playing game with massive features and abilities.

Speaking of abilities, we do know a few of the features that will be available with The Elder Scrolls: Blades. You will have the entire full game available to you, and you can play in portrait mode or landscape mode. There will be a lot of game modes as well with this mobile release.

This includes multiplayer arena, town story mode, and a survival mode. You will find hand-crafted dungeons in this game and it will also have procedure-generated dungeons. Bethesda said that The Elder Scrolls: Blades is going to be free on both iOS and Android. More platforms and more options, such as VR mode, will be available down the road.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades Mobile Game Details Scant for Now

While Bethesda did announce some of the details of The Elder Scrolls: Blades, a lot of other details have been left out for now. It seems that you are going to get the complete role-playing experience with this game, but everything is optimized for mobile. Dual stick controls or the ability to tap to move are going to be in the game. Building towns and going into combat, along with everything else Elder Scrolls has to offer will be available for you.

If you go to playblades.com right now, you will be able to register for early access to The Elder Scrolls: Blades. We are not sure when the game itself is going to begin allowing players to get into the early access part of the experience. The game will definitely have elements of the first Elder Scrolls game, which was released way back in 1994. If you remember the Arena from back then, that is what The Elder Scrolls: Blades is going to be like in some ways. We hope to have more details for you regarding this game in the near future.

Are You Looking Forward to The Elder Scrolls: Blades Mobile Game?

For now, you should definitely sign up for the early access so you can try out the game for yourself. One thing we do not know yet either, is whether in-app items are going to be part of this game. Since the game is free to download, it would make sense if there were some ways to purchase items and get upgrades quickly. We hope to know more about the game overall in the coming weeks, such as the official release date. The only release date we know was from the Bethesda conference, but only fall 2018 was specified up to this point in time.

We want to hear from you on what you think about The Elder Scrolls: Blades. Did you watch the Bethesda E3 conference? Are you more excited about The Elder Scrolls: Blades coming out for iOS and Android? What other announcements this past weekend did you enjoy? Have you found that games such as Elder Scrolls make good games when optimized for the mobile experience? It can be hard to bring a console or PC game to the mobile screen, so we are hoping that The Elder Scrolls: Blades turns out well.
