The Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access is Now Available for Everyone

You can now take Elder Scrolls on the go.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades, Bethesda's mobile Elder Scrolls game, is now available for everyone in early access. Previously, Elder Scrolls: Blades was only accessible to a limited number of beta players.

Elders Scrolls: Blades was announced at E3 2018 for smartphones. It was originally scheduled to come out in 2018, but was delayed into 2019. Elder Scrolls: Blades was then released in early access a couple weeks ago, but spots were limited to players who registered for early access. Anyone not eligible to access the game was directed to a loading screen assuring them that Elder Scrolls: Blades would open to more players soon.

That time is now, and anyone with a compatible smartphone can download Elder Scrolls: Blades. For players who previously downloaded the game but were unable to access the content, there's now an 800+ mb download before being able to play.

Like other Elder Scrolls games, players can create their own characters and explore a small open world. Elder Scrolls: Blades is played in the first-person perspective, and movement and combat are all controlled by touchscreen controls.

Though Bethesda is promising a full Elder Scrolls experience, complete with quests and exploration, everything we played of Elder Scrolls: Blades so far makes us hesitant. The official Elder Scrolls Twitter account says the game is still in early access and that the developers are looking for feedback and are in the middle of rebalancing.

Aside from Elder Scrolls: Blades, Bethesda is developing The Elder Scrolls 6. Development on the latter is still very early and will likely not be ready until well into next-gen. You can still check out our Elder Scrolls: Blades and Elder Scrolls 6 guides for more of our coverage on Bethesda's two fantasy RPGs.
