The Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access coming this spring to Android
According to Bethesda, Early Access will be available on Android sometime this spring and allow access to the full game. Bethesda noted that Early Access is different from the closed beta, which will be iOS-only and also feature the entire game.
Bethesda also mentioned that it’d grant people Early Access on a rolling basis. The company won’t place a non-disclosure agreement on Early Access players — they can post as many screenshots and videos as they’d like.
In a bit of welcome news, Bethesda stated that any progress and purchases made during Early Access would carry over into the final game when it launches. We don’t know if the same goes for the closed beta, so iOS players should be a bit wary.
Lastly, Bethesda provided a list of supported devices for Early Access. You have your usual suspects on the list — Samsung Galaxy S8 and newer, Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and later, the last two generations of Pixel phones, and the previous two generations of OnePlus phones — along with other phones. You can go here to check out the full list.
Announced during E3 2018, The Elder Scrolls: Blades is the first RPG game in the long-running series to launch on iOS and Android. You play as a member of the ancient order known as the Blades. Your character is forced into exile and must restore your hometown from the rubble. That means town-building elements, quests, and plenty of battles.
Initially set for a late 2018 launch, The Elder Scrolls: Blades was pushed back to sometime this year. You can pre-register the game at the link below.
