The Elder Scrolls: Legends was first announced during Bethesda’s E3 press conference last year, and it’s essentially Hearthstone but with Bethesda dragons instead of Blizzard dragons. It’s also not Gwent, which is unfortunate. The game entered open beta about two months after its reveal and has remained in beta ever since. Until now.
That’s right, Legends officially made its full debut on PC as of yesterday, and the game’s developer has taken to Bethesda’s blog to detail launch dates for other platforms, as well as the game’s first big expansion.
If you’d like to see what the game is all about, all you need to do is download it for free using the Bethesda.net game launcher, but If you’d rather play the game on a mobile platform, you’ll need to wait a little longer. A post by Dire Wolf Digital on Bethesda’s blog announcing the game’s PC launch also revealed the launch dates for various mobile platforms.
- iPad: 23 March
- Android tablets: April
- Mac OS: May
- Mobile phones: Early summer (winter for us in SA)
The blurb details a fair amount of new features that will be added to the game in the coming months, all of which can be checked out here.
Keeping a game like this relevant requires periodic injections of fresh content, and Legends‘ first one will come in the form of a major expansion called The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood, explains another post. The expansion will include a new story for players to follow, with more than 25 new missions, and a total of 40 new cards to earn along the way. The game’s developer isn’t giving away too many of the story’s plot points just yet, but has revealed that players will be hired to “infiltrate the ranks of the Dark Brotherhood,” and that the story will be “linked to Cicero’s Journal, the murderously mad jester that Skyrim fans will remember.”
The expansion will be split into three parts or “maps,” which can be bought separately using real money or in-game gold. Players can alternatively buy a bundle including all three maps for $19.99 (around R270). The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood will be out sometime in April.
