Bethesda Announce New Mobile RPG Elder Scrolls Blades
Bethesda Games Studios reveals today that they have a new game coming to iPhone, iPad and Android devices called Elder Scrolls Blades. While the game is set to launch later this year in fall, eager fans can pre-register for a chance to play the game in early access via the Bethesda website.
While the game sets out to be a mobile game, Bethesda boasts that it will have console graphics on iPhone 10 and sport a portrait mode. The portrait mode or “meeting mode” as they put it, let’s you play the game with one hand and doesn’t easily give away the fact you’re playing a game, so you can sneakily play it in meetings.
The mobile RPG will allow you play using not only melee attacks but spells too in single-player campaigns. There is a ton of gear to collect, powerful magic to master and upgradeable skills. The game will have three different modes:
- Abyss Mode – A rogue-like endless mode that you can push to the limits in a never ending dungeon. Enemies you face become deadlier and deadlier as you proceed onwards.
- Arena Mode – Step in the arena and face-off against another enemy in one-on-one combat. Attacks are in real-time so you must learn when to defend and when to make your move.
- Story Mode – Restore and build you town with tools and materials. A town once prosperous, you return to find is in desperate need of rebuilding. Customise your city to your choosing.
What do you think of this announcement for a mobile RPG? Let us know in the comments below. Pre-register is available between June 10th and June 15th for those who want a chance at gaining early access. Elder Scrolls Blades is set to release on iOS and Android in fall 2018.
