E3 2018: Bethesda Unveils Starfield, First New Franchise in 25 Years

Adjust Comment Print

The Elder Scrolls: Blades will be played by tapping or using virtual dual sticks, with combat containing standard melee attacks, ranged attacks, and magical spells.

Described by Bethesda's Todd Howard, The Elder Scrolls: Blades casts players as "the empire's top agents", who return home to find that it has been destroyed.

This is not a drill: The Elder Scrolls VI is officially in development, and Bethesda shared the first trailer for the game at E3 2018. The game features both hand-crafted and procedurally generated dungeons. Town mode has you rebuilding and decorating a decimated town to receive more quests. Part of those measures will likely be a file integrity check, which means that if you modify the game files, you either won't be able to play or worse, you'll be banned. Arena is a 1v1 player versus mode, and finally Town brings you into a town building mode.

A list hasn't been confirmed, but Bethesda did confirm they want it on as many mobile phones as possible.
