Take Elder Scrolls on the go, this time on the Switch.

Today at Bethesda's E3 2019 press conference, the developers took the stage to announce new updates to Elder Scrolls: Blades. The mobile Elder Scrolls game is getting some big updates, including a new dragon questline.

Tonight, the new Elder Scrolls: Blades update goes live and brings new mechanics like jewelry crafting, as well as a brand new dragon questline. This fall, Elder Scrolls: Blades is coming to the Nintendo Switch along with a new Arena, PvP update and guilds.

The Switch version of Elder Scrolls: Blades is set to come out in Fall 2019, and yes it will still be free-to-play. There will also be cross-save, so you can bring your file from mobile to Switch. Expect more details on the Elder Scrolls: Blades rollout later this week.
