The Elder Scrolls: Blades is a spin-off installment in The Elder Scrolls franchise of role-playing games. It is made for mobile devices and is based on the free-to-play model.


The game is set in the medieval high fantasy world of Tamriel. The player assumes the role of an agent of Blades, an ancient secret organization that used to serve their empire. The protagonist was recently forced to escape the capital and return to the distant small town where he or she was born. The character finds it destroyed and has to fight and work hard to rebuild it and restore its power.


The player controls the protagonist from the first person view in the portrait (vertical) layout of his or her device. He or she can use either virtual dual sticks or tapping for controls. The protagonist uses various melee and ranged weapons as well as spells. Besides fighting, the player must help in rebuilding the city in the town building mode.


The Elder Scrolls: Blades features several game modes. The Town mode is the story campaign centered around the protagonist's hometown. In Abyss mode, the player enters a dungeon and faces never-ending attacks of wave after wave of enemies that become progressively stronger. The Arena mode allows the players to fight each other on an arena.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades reviews and comments

Translated by

SPEND 2 MINUTES READING, IT'S WORTH IT. For the moment it leaves me somewhat perplexed, in my opinion for now I am more the cons than the pros, but I grant the benefit of the doubt since it is still the early access. -Device of Use: IPhone 7, slight lag from time to time, once it has even frozen in the middle of a quest. -On screen Controls: Not very comfortable the two joysticks, are impacciati movements. Perhaps places too close to the commands of spell and attacks, often happens that does not accomplish any action during duels despite I press the icon of the ability. -Loot System: The maximum accumulation limit of the coffers is always reached too quickly, forcing you to spend gems (which purchases with real money) to expand the space available. For this reason, The same coffers require (in my opinion) too many gems to speed up the opening. Because of these two reasons if I wanted to open them all without spending money it would take forever. -Quest System: For now equal, repetitive, same dungeons in which you always share only from different positions, same mob. The rewards are too focused on chests and gold rather than on materials (in my opinion much more necessary, since you have to rebuild the village). However, I gladly continue to play with it, hoping that the first updates will happen as soon as possible

The Game itself very good. However, I was only able to play after two Days because I was invited only then. But what is understandable is that the Game is in the Early Access Version and the Developers do not want to risk Overload. The Graphics are good and the Game runs fluidly and is Fun to play. The Dungeons are also good for an Early Access Game but the Designs repeat themselves. However, this will be made up for by the Secret Hideouts and hope that will come even more in kind. My only Criticism would be the long Wait For the Chests that annoy me a bit, because you only get objects through these, which makes it a little Time more intense to ascend to the Level. In addition, my Wish would be that you can find Items like Weapons and Armor In Dungeons, which would spice up the Game a bit more. Geil would also be Bosses or the like And maybe companions in the Form of Comrades (such as Warriors who help you on Missions) or Pets who do the same. Finally, I would be happy about a Selection of Long-distance combat Weapons that would make fighting with Opponents more versatile. All in all, the Game is definitely worth waiting for! And it has been super successful for an early Access version but maybe should be optimized a little bit during the Control because it is a bit annoying not to be able to sprint.
wasted my life on here.
