Bethesda Softworks first announced The Elder Scrolls: Blades at last year’s E3, along with Rage 2, Fallout 76, Starfield, and The Elder Scrolls VI, though the latter two are still a long way off. Several members of our team are very pumped for The Elder Scrolls: Blades in particular, and a few of them were lucky to get early-Early Access. Now Early Access is available for all, as per Bethesda Game Studios' Twitter post a few hours ago. So if you didn't get a chance to try it out yet, be sure to check it out in your mobile device of choice.

They also released an Early Access trailer that showcases the game's impressive and atmospheric first-person mobile graphics. Even if you're not a keen mobile gamer, as I'm not, you have to admit that Blades looks quite impressive for a mobile game.

In any case, you are now free to try The Elder Scrolls: Blades as long as your mobile device can support it, and there are none of the previous restrictions to access it, not even an active account. Anyone can go to the App Store or the Google Play store and download the game for free. The patch notes for the latest version, 4.30.2019, are now available on the Bethesda forums.

One of our staff writers also wrote an interesting op-ed on "What Can The Elder Scrolls: Blades Tell Us About The Elder Scrolls 6?" which you might be interested in if you're a diehard TES fan. Our site founder, Rutledge Daugette, also sat down with one of our staff writers, Austin Suther, to discuss their experiences with The Elder Scrolls: Blades so far, and if you're interested in listening to the podcast you can check it out here.

So head on to either the Apple Store or the Google Play store if you're looking to check out Blades.
