The looked impressive when initially announced and is set between Oblivion and Skyrim, placing it firmly within the Elder Scrolls franchise.
A Launch Of Sorts
Originally launched on mobile platforms earlier in 2019, the swipe first ask questions later Elder Scrolls adventure promised a fantastically immersive Elder Scrolls adventure designed for anywhere. Features like redesigned control features, multiple orientations, and some stunning graphics made it seem like this might be the mobile game to crack the market for dedicated console players. In reality, the Android and iOS adventure squeezed money out of players with some egregious loot timers and microtransactions.
Now, it seems Bethesda is making some alterations for the Nintendo version of this title. The Nintendo release of The Elder Scrolls: Blades won’t land until early 2020. Before then we are getting update 1.5 which will remove timed loot fro the title. Update 1.5 is also adding guilds and we will even see PvP hit the game. All in the delay starts to make sense when these huge features are just on the horizon. Hopefully, the Joycon controls will be on point because I can’t wait to try out swordplay when this arrives.
