Bethesda announces The Elder Scrolls: Blades at E3, coming soon to Android and iOS
Surprise us colored that Bethesda's Todd Howard, quite possibly the most charismatic presenter E3 has seen thus far, did not reveal a new version of the wildly-popular and milked-to-death The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim late last night. No, you won't be able to yell Fus-Ro-Dah at your smart fridge or Amazon Echo device, but hey, you will be able to play a brand new game set in The Elder Scrolls' universe on your smartphone!
Dubbed The Elder Scrolls: Blades, the game is a pure first-person RPG bringing its console-grade graphics to Android and iOS devices. With a rather minimalist interface that's not unheard of when it comes to Bethesda games, intuitive control system and new combat mechanics, The Elder Scrolls: Blades will boast procedurally-generated levels and... well, character customization, of course!
A new feature of the game is the fact that it can be played in both landscape and portrait modes, which would definitely come in handy should you need an extra hand or playing while in a work meeting.
The game will also sport a VR mode on mobile. There will also be cross-play with the PC version of the game.
The Elder Scrolls: Blades will be available for free and will launch this autumn. You can already register your interest for the title at both the App Store and the Play Store and will be notified once it launches.
