I was excited for a moment but then I realized that Bethesda would never do turn-based combat.

I mean, in principle I kind of like the idea for a big rich publisher trying to make a full-blown AAA mobile game, just to see what they can do with it.

This though, hard pass.

It's a pretty good guess that the town building would be like the "Garrisons" you see from WoW: Warlords of Draenor other mobile games, just shallow

So how many microtransactions per microsecond does it have?

F2P mobile games are done to be played a couple of minutes every day at the most. With that in mind, you don't really need to pay if it's F2P.
I've been playing Clash of Clans for more than a year now without spending a single buck.

Wait and see. Those games are to be judged with different standards.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades Revealed

Take the Elder Scrolls anywhere you go with The Elder Scrolls: Blades.

Revealed during the 2018 Bethesda E3 Showcase, Blades is an all-new Elder Scrolls game from Bethesda Game Studios. Launching in fall 2018, Blades will be free-to-play on iPhone, iPad and Android devices. Additionally, pre-registration is now open for a chance to try the game in Early Access prior to its launch later this year!

A MASSIVE, FIRST PERSON ROLE PLAYING GAME CREATED FOR MOBILE.
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_in-body_Wight_960x540.jpg


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.

QUEST. CREATE. CONQUER.
Restoring your town will take more than tools and materials. It also needs your guidance! As you rebuild your surroundings, you will also be able to customize your city as you choose.

Consider yourself the superior Blade? Prove it in the Arena! Blades features one-on-one combat where you deflect enemy attacks in real time while dishing out some of your own.

For those seeking a daunting challenge, Blades also features the Abyss – an infinitely replayable mode in which daring heroes push their limits floor after floor in a never-ending dungeon, where enemies become deadlier and deadlier as you progress.

YOUR ADVENTURE, YOUR WAY
Whether you’re journeying through the single-player campaign, going for your personal best in the Abyss or striking down real-world challengers in the Arena, Blades features multiple ways to play – both in terms of your hero and your personal control preferences.

Blades supports both a two-handed landscape control scheme and a one-handed portrait setup, should you need a free hand to enjoy a cup of coffee or discreetly slay some goblins during a dull meeting. All you have to do is rotate your device!

Ready to begin your quest as a Blade? Pre-register online between Sunday, June 10, and Friday, June 15, for a chance to be part of The Elder Scrolls: Blades’ Early Access program and to receive an exclusive sword and helmet! Visit PlayBlades.com today to learn more about how you can be among the first to try the game before its public launch later this year.

Try Clash Royale, if you want to grab all the free stuff, it becomes a chore every day.

Looks like an inoffensive enough time-filler for if you get stuck at the airport or some shit.

Free? Is that a too good to be true scenario where there are hidden costs later on? I’m a tad skeptical on free.

It's going to be great.
At the very least, the gameplay presentation during the game's unveiling made more sense than FO76's.

Android devices? Oh fucking bleh again with the phones. Shit, fuck, cunt $&@$&&$&$!!!!

It's "pure Elder Scrolls game" on mobile (and also PC with VR headset) coming this Fall:



You as a blade explore dungeon, fight in arena, and also build a town (of course).

Did this ever actually come out?

I lose interest so fast in new updates that I don’t know anymore. Is ALF still on the boobtoob?
