Today during the Quakecon 2016 opening live stream, Bethesda VP of PR and Marketing Pete Hines announced that the open beta for the free-to-play strategy card game Elder Scrolls Legends begins today on PC. You can download the beta via the game’s official site.
“We’ll see if I’m actually any good at the game,” said Hines. Elder Scrolls Legends was originally announced in during Bethesda’s E3 showcase in 2015, but didn’t see the light of day until almost a year later. Gameplay videos since have showcased the game’s clear inspirations from the likes of Hearthstone, but with some potentially fun twists.
During their E3 showcase in June, Hines also announced that Legends would feature a single-player story mode, which the trailer seen above depicts. It’s unclear how the free-to-play title will handle this mode, and whether or not the entirety of it will be available at no charge.
Also during the showcase, Bethesda announced The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Addition, which is a remastered version of the game for Xbox One and PS4. Alongside a much appreciated graphical upgrade, Special Edition will also include full mod support for the game, a feature long-toted on the PC version of the game. Mod support has also recently hit the Xbox One version of Fallout 4, with PS4 support still in the works, apparently.
