Bethesda unveils mobile game The Elder Scrolls: Blades

The sketch was meant to parody the fact that Bethesda has re-released Skyrim so many times.

After a long period of speculation and rumor, Bethesda officially revealed Starfield, its upcoming science-fiction game. Tease is the operative word here, because we have no gameplay footage, no word about the setting or story, no release date, and no console details. But we'll take it over nothing.

- "Forza Horizon 4" is a gorgeous-looking game for vehicle fans, whether you like racing or just exploring the great outdoors. The Elder Scrolls Online, while popular, has hardly kept their hunger for a sequel at bay.

One of the most surprising announcements, however, was for an entirely new IP named 'Starfield': what Bethesda director Todd Howard called "our next-generation, single-player epic".

That's not it for Elder Scrolls content, however, because Bethesda also revealed mobile spin-off TES Blades. Still, it's absolutely gorgeous and it will be free to play. The game is scheduled for release in Spring 2019.

Blades, the game is a pure first-person RPG bringing its console-grade graphics to Android and iOS devices. As was the announcement of Doom 2, a mobile Edler Scrolls game for iPhone, and much more besides.

A couple of years ago, Howard mentioned that the technology wasn't there yet for what he wanted to achieve with The Elder Scrolls VI. The previous major Elder Scrolls game, Skyrim, was released in 2011 and has since seen so many ports and re-releases that Bethesda's own showcase made an elaborate joke about the game coming to the Amazon Echo.

Todd Howard just unveiled a game that was so secret he couldn't even tell his son about it. In the last two years we've shipped the S console, which I love, and the X console - we said what it was going to do, and I love the fact we were able to deliver that.

If you're really reaching for more information, you can try to figure out where the game will take place based on the teaser footage that we saw in the trailer.
