Elder Scrolls Blades Release Date - Beta, Elder Scrolls Mobile, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, PC - Everything we Know

This is a complete roundup of everything you need to know about The Elder Scrolls: Blades, including the release date, platforms, and gameplay footage for this mobile Elder Scrolls.

The Elder Scrolls Blades might have slipped into releasing at some point in 2019, but the prospect of an Elder Scrolls game on your phone is still intriguing. In this Elder Scrolls Blades guide, we'll be walking you through everything we know so far about the game, including the Elder Scrolls Blades release date, all the Elder Scrolls Blades beta details that Bethesda has laid out, and more.

Elder Scrolls Blades Release Date

Unlike the long wait we'll have in store for The Elder Scrolls 6, which Bethesda first revealed back at E3 2018, the Elder Scrolls Blades is set to release at some point over the coming months.

But, the mobile game has since missed its target release window of 2018. We now don't have a set release date for The Elder Scrolls Blades, but we'll keep this guide updated with any future information about the game's release.

Just below, you'll can see the full character creator for The Elder Scrolls Blades. You'll be able play the game as any race you want, from Argonian to Breton.

As demonstrated by Todd Howard during the E3 2018 presentation from Bethesda, you'll be able to play the game in either portrait or landscape mode on your phone. The game is entirely using touch controls, and you can see a diagram of the full control scheme, courtesy of Android Police.

Elder Scrolls Blades Beta Date

We don't yet know when the Elder Scrolls Blades beta will begin, but you can register on the official website to get early access. You'll need a Bethesda.net account in order to sign up, but this is free to set up on the website. We'll bring you more info on when the Elder Scrolls Blades beta or early access is set to begin when Bethesda makes an official announcement.

Elder Scrolls Blades is Coming to Mobile, PC, and Consoles

At the Bethesda E3 presentation, Howard talked about The Elder Scrolls Blades basically being a mobile game that's also coming to console and PC in Fall 2018. The game was only shown off in its mobile form, being able to play in either landscape or portrait mode, with Howard making some sort of joke about using your other hand for something else while you're playing in portrait mode. Not really sure what he's on about.

We don't actually know any details about The Elder Scrolls Blades coming to PC and consoles, save that those versions are actually happening. We can assume these versions will be launching alongside the mobile version of the game, but we'll have to wait and hear more to find out for sure.

Todd Howard revealed that you'll be able to transfer your character between all versions of The Elder Scrolls: Blades, no matter which platforms you switch between. This should encourage players to pick the game up on mobile when out and about, but then play on PC or console at home.

Elder Scrolls Blades Gameplay

A brief demo for The Elder Scrolls Blades was shown at Bethesda's E3 2018 presentation. There are three core modes to the game, and we'll break them all down just below:

  • Abyss - A roguelike experience, tasking players to get as far as they possibly can in an endless dungeon.
  • Arena - Here you'll pit your customized character against other play-created characters, dueling it out as the title suggests.
  • The Town - After a ransacking, you'll have to rebuild your hometown from scratch, creating new buildings and resources for your townsfolk.

That's it for all the details we've gathered together about The Elder Scrolls Blades so far. Make sure to keep an eye on this page though, as we'll be updating it with any additional information that Bethesda reveals, before the launch of the game later in 2018.
