The Elder Scrolls: Blades Coming to Switch, The Elder Scrolls Online: Elsweyr Gets Cinematic
A couple of the Elder Scrolls RPGs made appearances at Bethesda Softworks’ E3 Showcase. The first game was The Elder Scrolls: Blades, a free-to-play action RPG currently available in an early access version on iOS and Android. In addition to a new trailer highlighting the latest major update to the game, Bethesda also announced that The Elder Scrolls: Blades will be released for Nintendo Switch, also as a free-to-play title in 2019.
Bethesda also devoted some time to MMORPG The Elder Scrolls Online and its recently-released Elsweyr expansion. In addition to providing a cinematic trailer, the company also provided details on its upcoming Scalebreaker and Dragonhold updates, both of which tie into the game’s year-long Season of the Dragon theme. Scalebreaker is expected to release in Q3 2019, and adds two new dungeons — Moongrave Fane and Lair of Maarselok. Meanwhile, Dragonhold is planned for release in Q4 2019 and adds a new area in Southern Elsweyr called Pellitine. Players are required to gather allies, including Sai Sahan, to reform the Dragonguard order and prevent the dragon threat from spreading to all of Tamriel.
