Elder Scrolls: Legends gets a new trailer during the Bethesda E3 presentation.

Already released back in 2017, the game has continued to expand, with new features and content coming around for the game, specifically, the latest expansion for the title, Heroes of Skyrim.

The focus was all on Skyrim, with the trailer teasing werewolves, sovngarde, vampires, and more. In total, this brand-new set will contain over 150 cards, and introduce new mechanics to Legends to recreate the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim experience.

Heroes of Skyrim reintroduces fan favorite characters from  Skyrim, with names such as Aela the Huntress, J’Zargo and Delphine specifically mentioned Dragons of legend like Alduin and Paarthurnax will also be present in the game.The biggest new mechanic to Legends will be the use of "Shouts" from Skyrim to give your decks an advantage over other players.


Shouts work similarly as they did in Skyrim, where the player can use them at three different power levels. The first time a player uses a Shout card, they gain it's first level, and each subsequent use increases it power. Other cards in the game can help progress your Shout cards quickly, becoming a strategic tool to use in combat.

The Companions from Skyrim are also mentioned, with each of them using the "change" ability introduced from the previous Dark Brotherhood expansion. This will allow them to transform into beasts once their runes are broken, giving them more powerful bonuses and even triggering abilities to aid you in combat.

Outside of Heroes of Skyrim, Bethesda also confirmed that Elder Scrolls Legends will be coming to Android phones later this year.

The Elder Scrolls Legends is a free to play collectible card game, first released in March of 2017. The game utilizes the lore of the Elder Scrolls series, using characters, creatures, items and more to fight against opponents. Heroes of Skyrim will be the second major expansion to the game.


Heroes of Skyrim will be released on June 29th, 2017 across all available platforms for the game.
