The Bethesda presentation at E32018 managed to raise excitement among much of the videogaming community, with some huge reveals and announcements and further details of other upcoming Bethesda projects. One of the big announcements was a new Elder Scrolls title called The Elder Scrolls: Blades, and fans can get a closer look with new screenshots.
Bethesda’s Tod Howard announced that The Elder Scrolls: Blades would have virtual reality (VR) compatibility and would be available on a huge range of platforms, from Mobile up to high-end PC VR.
The developers have managed to distill The Elder Scrolls into its essential elements, providing the classic fantasy adventure expected by the fans with high-quality graphics and an expansive game world to be explored.
Players will be able to experience the title in either portrait or landscape orientation on their smartphones, and gameplay will be split into three main areas. There will be the PvP Arena where players can take on each other to see who is best.
There’s also The Abyss for players who prefer to crawl through dungeons. An endless dungeon area filled with enemies and treasure to help upgrade your gear. Finally, the main campaign area is The Town, which will feature a full storyline, as well as the chance to develop the area as they see fit.
During the presentation Bethesda indicated that it was trying to create in The Elder Scrolls: Blades an experience that players can pick up and play wherever and whenever they want. The title will initially be made available on Android and iOS, with plans to expand it to other platforms.
While the HTC Vive was featured as part of the reveal video, it has not yet been confirmed what other VR platforms The Elder Scrolls: Blades will be available on.
