The Elder Scrolls: Blades Available Now on Nintendo Switch

The Elder Scrolls: Blades

Bethesda have launched The Elder Scrolls: Blades on Nintendo Switch.

Unlike other Elder Scrolls games, this free to play game has a greater focus on the angle players swing their weapons in one-on-one fights, and a more roguelike linear experience.

Progress made on mobile devices can also be shared across the Nintendo Switch version via a Bethesda.net account.

The official announcement on Bethesda’s website also  reveals there will be a Quick Start Edition of the game. Priced at $14.99, players also get a bundle of “legendary gear once owned by the notorious Bloodfall King,” 30,000 Gold, 2,000 Gems, building mateirals, and the Sylvan Foundation decoration.
