The Elder Scrolls: Legends finally arrives in beta

New, 20 comments

Collectible card game fans, rejoice

Bethesda Softworks launched a closed beta for The Elder Scrolls: Legends today, over a year after it was announced at E3 2015. Fans of both the open-world role-playing series and collectible card games can now register to test out the Windows PC title.

Select participants will be chosen to try out Legends starting today, while additional testers will be invited into the closed beta in the coming months. A full release has yet to be announced for the free-to-play strategy game, which will launch on both PC and iOS.

At its first-ever E3 press conference last year, Bethesda revealed that The Elder Scrolls: Legends was in the works with help from Dire Wolf Digital. A teaser trailer accompanied the announcement, but gameplay and other details have been light ever since. The new trailer above shows off how the card game will work. It also teases a variety of modes, including a main story and multiplayer arenas.

Last July, Bethesda's vice president of marketing Pete Hines said that the company planned to release Legends — which has been in development since 2013 — quietly, much in the same way that it launched Fallout ShelterThe popular mobile title was also revealed at E3 2015 and was up for download shortly after the press event.
