The Elder Scrolls: Blades announced for mobile devices

The Elder Scrolls: Blades announced for mobile devices

Seeing as this is Bethesda Games Studios' major new IP, I expect Starfield to have an even more ambitious scope than, say, an online-based Fallout.

The long-rumored title was officially confirmed by Bethesda with a teaser trailer near the end of the presentation.

Of greater interest, perhaps, was Howard's announcement that Bethesda was working on its first new original franchise in 25 years. However, it's reasonable to assume that fans will see the game release for PlayStation 5 and the next Xbox, now known by its codename Scarlet, as well as PCs. Tease is the operative word here, because we have no gameplay footage, no word about the setting or story, no release date, and no console details. It's a massive first-person role-playing game with console-quality graphics.

Curiously, it runs in portrait mode on your phone. The words The Elder Scrolls VI appear on screen, and that's it. Both Hammerfell and High Rock have previously featured in The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall.

Loew fumes as 'sloppy' Germany crash on Neuer's return
Germany chief coach Joachim Loew said: "It's a frustrating defeat because we didn't implement a lot of what we had talked about". And the game was turned on its head when Alessandro Schopf drilled home Stefan Lainer's clever cut-back in the 69th-minute.


The former was shown off first, with its official unveiling by Todd Howard being followed by a purposefully vague teaser trailer revealing nothing but a planet and a logo.

Blades is most likely a way to tide people over until the eventual release of TES 6, but for a mobile game it does look impressive.

Bethesda has revealed that The Elder Scrolls: Blades, a new free-to-play RPG set in the Elder Scrolls universe, is coming to iPads and iPhones later in 2018. In the old model of games shipping, getting played and then going away - and that was all of the games - a console transition was an easy step-function. However, it does seem like we're leaving the snow-covered world of Skyrim for a more diverse climate that somewhat resembles the world seen in Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

Both the Elder Scrolls and Fallout series have shared a similar character progression system and open-world backdrop, partially rooted in their sharing of the same gaming engine.
