At its heart, this mobile game is a true Elder Scrolls title. It features melee battles that respond to your precise movements as well as a number of spells and ranged abilities as well as familiar colorful locations. The Elder Scrolls: Blades features two different control settings. You can either play the game with both hands while holding your device horizontally or switch into a portrait mode and play with one hand. The video shows off both ways as the character takes on spiders, goblins and other foes.
In The Elder Scrolls: Blades you are member of the ancient order of the Blades. Forced into exile, you seek refuge in your remote hometown only to find it reduced to rubble. Now, it’s up to you to restore your town back to its former glory. Blades contains the many hallmarks Elder Scrolls fans enjoy from the franchise – beautifully rendered, console-quality environments, powerful magic, tons of gear to collect, upgradeable skills and of course, real-time fantasy battles! Fights are settled using the touchscreen to slash your sword, deflect oncoming attacks, cast a mighty bolt of lightning and more.
