Elder Scrolls Blades Nintendo Switch Release Date
During Bethesda's E3 2019 Press Conference, it was revealed that Elder Scrolls Blade will be making its way to Nintendo Switch. It will still be free-to-play when it launches Fall 2019.
Elder Scrolls Blades Cross-Save
One of the coolest things about Elder Scrolls Blades coming to Switch is that it will give players a chance to play on multiple devices. To help this, there will also be cross-save between the platforms, starting when Nintendo Switch version launches Fall 2019.

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.
