E3 2018: The Elder Scrolls Blades Announced

In this post, we will be talking about the details Todd Howard shared about Starfield and Elder Scrolls VI.

A new Elder Scrolls game was also teased at the showcase.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades is set to be available for free on iOS and Android later this year, and will eventually make it's way to pc, consoles, and VR, much like Fallout Shelter. Known as The Elder Scrolls Travels, these mobile adventures to Tamriel ranged from flip phones to the ill-fated N-Gage, and even a cancelled PSP game. Bethesda's expansion beyond traditional consoles offers a potential wealth of hallmark IP's in forms we haven't seen before. The team behind it is obviously proud of it, and when Bethesda are proud of something, we know it's going to be great.

Fallout 76 is an entirely online game - although you will be able to play it solo - and it a "soft core" survival game where death doesn't result in a loss of progress.

The decision to speak about releases that are admittedly quite a way off was due to Howard and co wanting to be open with its fans about what Bethesda had coming up. It will retain the first-person perspective and RPG-influenced action of the previous three major Fallout games, but enable cooperative and competitive multiplayer in a semi-massively multiplayer online environment. Bethesda says Blades supports the two-handed landscape control scheme and a one-handed portrait setup if you'd prefer to play with one hand. What's more, he says that it's definitely a single-player-focused game.

Better still, as it's a cross-platform release, irrelevant of which source device you're using to play, all players will be present in the same world. Blades draws inspiration from the Elder Scrolls days of yore, with more Arena and Daggerfall-inspired experiences. You will take control of a Panzerhund and fire Nazis to aid the French resistance.
