A massive, first person role playing game created for mobile.

In The Elder Scrolls: Blades you are member of the ancient order of the Blades. Forced into exile, you seek refuge in your remote hometown only to find it reduced to rubble. Now, it’s up to you to restore your town back to its former glory.

Blades contains the many hallmarks Elder Scrolls fans enjoy from the franchise – beautifully rendered, console-quality environments, powerful magic, tons of gear to collect, upgradeable skills and of course, real-time fantasy battles! Fights are settled using the touchscreen to slash your sword, deflect oncoming attacks, cast a mighty bolt of lightning and more.


Quest. Create. Conquer.

Restoring your town will take more than tools and materials. It also needs your guidance! As you rebuild your surroundings, you will also be able to customize your city as you choose. Consider yourself the superior Blade? Prove it in the Arena! Blades features one-on-one combat where you deflect enemy attacks in real time while dishing out some of your own.

Image

For those seeking a daunting challenge, Blades also features the Abyss – an infinitely replayable mode in which daring heroes push their limits floor after floor in a never-ending dungeon, where enemies become deadlier and deadlier as you progress.



Your Adventure, Your Way.

Whether you’re journeying through the single-player campaign, going for your personal best in the Abyss or striking down real-world challengers in the Arena, Blades features multiple ways to play – both in terms of your hero and your personal control preferences.

Blades supports both a two-handed landscape control scheme and a one-handed portrait setup, should you need a free hand to enjoy a cup of coffee or discreetly slay some goblins during a dull meeting. All you have to do is rotate your device!

Image

Ready to begin your quest as a Blade? Pre-register online between Sunday, June 10, and Friday, June 15, for a chance to be part of The Elder Scrolls: Blades’ Early Access program and to receive an exclusive sword and helmet! Visit PlayBlades.com today to learn more about how you can be among the first to try the game before its public launch later this year.

I looks alright for a mobile game, if there's a Switch port I'll definitely go for it.

Pretty much

I find the lack of limbs off-putting though. Way to go break my immersion with a floating sword :(

This was really weirdly presented.

They started off by saying that they had always wanted to make a game for the iPhone, then proceeded to say that it'd be out on iPhone, Android and PC. So I'd imagine it'd probably come to all the consoles too?

They definitely said that it'd be out for all the consoles. They're giving it the Skyrim treatment.

I'll give it a go on mobile, it'll be interesting to see what it plays like on PSVR.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades is now available in Beta for those who registered. I'm in, and played ten minutes. On my iPhone X it does look really nice but for a free game the gem prices are shocking.

I think Bethesda want to try and bring it to everything. When I was looking at the licensing there was some kind of link to a PC launcher for the game. However I haven't played it enough to see how grindy it gets, you can find treasure chests but can't open them immediately unless...

Charging £100 for an Imperial Coffer! Yes it's optional but I really do think it's a type of exploitation.

Installed it last night and stopped as I had to set up a Bethesda Account/remember my existing one. "I'll do it in the morning."

On the train, set it up , get logged in. "Oh you can't play now. Activate notifications and we'll tell you when."

strawberry float off.

Check out some of our stuff!
