Elder Scrolls Blades early access has begun on iOS and Android

The Elder Scrolls Blades combat

Those who registered more recently should look for an invitation soon.

Blades was announced at E3 a year ago, promising console quality graphics in a smartphone game. But the wait is just about over. Bethesda is "limiting access during the launch period", which means if you are not on the list, you're not getting in. "Fights are settled using the touchscreen to slash [with] your sword, deflect oncoming attacks, cast a mighty bolt of lightning, and more". If you haven't already signed up for early-access, then you will be greeted by the above screen and won't be able to go any further in the game.

Announced during Bethesda's E3 2018 conference, the publisher's take on a mobile version of The Elder Scrolls series had fans cautiously excited. It's an Early Access version, so it is "in development and it may be unstable".

Early Access is available on both iOS and Android platforms; those who signed up for Early Access are being chosen in a seemingly random manner.

The Elder Scrolls Blades early access now supports six languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Russian. Bethesda has confirmed, though, that "all progress and purchases made during Early Access will carry over into the final game when it launches".

While not quite a full-fat Elder Scrolls RPG, Blades boasts an impressive presentation and breadth of content. The full list of now supported devices can be found on the game's FAQ page. The available gameplay suggests that Blades will not be a typical Elder Scrolls experience and will instead focus on dungeon crawling and settlement building. It'll be up to the player to rebuild their hometown by completing quests and exploring the world. There's also an endless dungeon known as the Abyss that will test your merit and reward you accordingly.
