Elder Scrolls Blades will soon be coming to PC, console and mobile devices. While there is still time before we get to play the game, Bethesda has noted that player choice is the only priority for the game and also revealed some details regarding what players will be able to do.
Speaking with Gamereactor, Bethesda’s Pete Hines talked about The Elder Scrolls Blades and how the game will give players choices in regards to how they want to play.
According to Hines, the Elder Scrolls Blades will come with “console-quality graphics” and the team is hard at work to “create all of that content that makes for a deep, rich Elder Scrolls experience”.
Furthermore, he added that he considers the “Town Mode” the base game where the players will be spending most of their time.
As explained by Hines, in the Elder Scrolls Blades “Town Mode” players will be part of a group called “Blades” and when they return to their home they will find it destroyed and it is player’s job to rebuild the town.
While explaining the Town Mode for the upcoming the Elder Scrolls Blades, Hines also hinted at an invasion-like game mechanic that will allow players to visit towns of other players and see how they are rebuilding it.
So you’re going on quests, talking to NPCs, and starting to rebuild the town, and in rebuilding the town you get to make choices about what you’re going to build and how you want it to look. And you can visit other player’s towns if you want to see what your friends are doing, but you’re going on quests and leveling up and getting more powerful gear.
Furthermore, Hines also explained “Abyss Mode” which is actually an endless dungeon mode that players can play to see how far their character can survive.
Furthermore, he added that “We’re also planning a PvP version where you can go into the arena with your character and battle against other players”.
He ended the interview by noting that the Elder Scrolls Blades is a game that players can play the way they want and “making sure we’ve got enough content there to satisfy folks in whichever of those ways they want to play”.
However, this is not the only Elder Scrolls game in development as Bethesda announced the Elder Scrolls 6 at its E3 2018 press conference and has also confirmed that Bethesda has decided the region for Elder Scrolls 6.
