The Elder Scrolls: Blades Launches on Switch, and Fans Don’t Seem Too Happy

Bethesda has launched The Elder Scrolls: Blades on Nintendo Switch today with very little fanfare. Currently, the official launch trailer has over 50% more dislikes than likes, and fans have been quick to chime in about the release in the comments.

The mobile release of the game hasn’t fared too well either, with paywalls and ways to spend real-world money on items that speed up game timers. For a better idea of these timers, you can check out our review of the mobile version. The trailer for the Switch release has a strange music track playing behind it that doesn’t fit the tone or theme of the game at all.

However, those who are playing can access their mobile account on the free-to-play Switch version, but I’d wait a few days in case a bug loses your account. Users are already experiencing glitches and crashes after a quick look at the game’s Reddit page.

The gameplay is played in the first person as players explore dungeons and create their own kingdom using materials that they find in the field.

I wouldn’t have high hopes for the game, but if you’re enjoying the mobile version, then this might be a more comfortable way to progress your game. Please let us know about your experience with either version of The Elder Scrolls: Blades in the comments below.
