If you are a fan of the Elder Scrolls franchise and you enjoy mobile gaming you will be glad to hear about The Elder Scrolls Blades, a new mobile game from Bethesda Game Studios. During the E3 some fans had a chance to test out the latest Elder Scrolls addition.

The Elder Scrolls Blades is a bit different from the other Elder Scrolls games because it was adapted for its device. The game comes with two different modes: one that allows you to explore a forest and the other one which had a castle keep.
The graphics are quite impressing and they are great when paired up with an appropriate smartphone. Those who tested the game also appreciated the lighting and the resolution. Nonetheless, the game seemed to lack the storytelling characteristic for Bethesda.
When it comes to moving around you can choose to tap the ground in order to walk to that location or you can also use a virtual joystick that can be controlled by holding your phone on the left side of the screen. You can also draw your finger from side to side or up and down on the right side of the screen if you want to look around.
Additionally, when you want to open a door you need to tap it. If you tap certain jars you might find loot inside them. When an enemy appears, the gameplay is a bit different. This time holding down your finger on the screen will allow you to take a swipe at the enemy using your weapon. If the player holds down a finger on a shield icon, attacks will be blocked. There are also two spells: “blizzard armor” and an electricity spell.
