Although the Bethesda presentation during this year’s E3 was impressive, what followed next was indeed disappointing. After the problematic launch of Fallout 76 and the fans’ negative feedback, Bethesda just announced it postponed The Elder Scrolls: Blades to 2019.
The Elder Scrolls: Blades Postponed To 2019 By Bethesda
The Elder Scrolls: Blades would be a free mobile game for iOS and Android and the closest thing to a massively single-player role-playing game that the fans of The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim would get until The Elder Scrolls 6, a title Bethesda revealed at E3 2018.
“The Elder Scrolls: Blades will release in Early 2019 for iOS and Android devices. We are incredibly excited for you to play Blades and you can still sign up for Early Access at PlayBlades.Com,” announced Bethesda via The Elder Scrolls official page on Twitter.
Even though that’s not the first mobile game made by Bethesda, as Fallout Shelter launched first on mobile in 2015 and The Elder Scrolls: Legends reached mobile platforms in 2017, The Elder Scrolls: Blades was the most sought-after mobile title from Bethesda by the fans of the franchise.
About The Elder Scrolls: Blades
As we’ve mentioned, The Elder Scrolls: Blades would be a mobile game for iOS and Android and would boast a massive single-player role-playing campaign. While we haven’t had the occasion to test it for ourselves, the folks from Polygon had that opportunity and presented their conclusions.
“It’s more linear, claustrophobic and limited. In widescreen, the limitations are obvious; but when played in one hand, I can imagine how this game will fit into the daily routine of commuters and folks who like to fiddle with a mobile game while watching TV,” the guys from Polygon said.
According to them, the “input is handled with gestures, with taps causing your character to walk autonomously and swipes controlling where they look.” Also, the game would not be a full, open-world experience, but a more linear game.
