The Elder Scrolls: Legends Now Out of Beta

Following the reveal of the card-collecting game set in the Elder Scrolls universe last year, Dire Wolf Digital and Bethesda Softworks are moving The Elder Scrolls: Legends out of Beta and into a wider release.

Though versions are coming for iOS devices on March 23rd, and Android devices on April 4th, with mobile phones sometime this summer, Dire Wolf saw fit to allow the PC community access to their take on the Elder Scrolls universe. Major updates are set to come in May as well, including Spectator mode, integration, and in-game tournaments.

Alongside the start of the full release comes the announcement of the first expansion pack: The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood, a new PvE storyline. Within, players act as a double agent, sent to infiltrate the Dark Brotherhood, and uncover its secrets. A story taking place across three acts and introducing 40 new cards, this new expansion is set to release on April 5th, and can either be purchased using in-game gold, as a bundle for £19.99, or the acts can be purchased separately.

Players who purchase this expansion will also earn an exclusive mount for The Elder Scrolls Online, provided they play on PC platforms. Either way, The Elder Scrolls: Legends is free, and available to play now.

Official Press Release

We’re excited to reveal a ton of information about The Elder Scrolls: Legends today, including the official launch on PC (today), our first new content update, The Fall of The Dark Brotherhood, as well as details for significant future additions to the game, including new platforms, expansions, and features scheduled for the months ahead.

PC Version Launches Today

After several months of beta feedback from players and a myriad of improvements, additions, and optimizations, we’re extremely proud to officially remove the “Beta” tag from The Elder Scrolls: Legends, and formally launch on PC. Strategy card game fans looking for a more depth and challenge steeped in Elder Scrolls lore can download the game for free via the launcher, invite their friends, and start enjoying all the single-player and multiplayer content available.

Announcing Our First New PvE Content – The Fall of The Dark Brotherhood — Releasing April 5

We’re also revealing our first content update for The Elder Scrolls: Legends, The Fall of The Dark Brotherhood, a new PvE Story that tosses players into the role of a double agent hired to infiltrate the ranks of The Dark Brotherhood. Recruited by a sinister group to bring down the infamous and fan-favorite Elder Scrolls guild of lethal assassins, players will need to make key choices that both impact which missions you’ll play and decide the story’s ending.

The Fall of The Dark Brotherhood contains a massive new adventure that takes place prior to the events of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The new content will be broken into three sections, or maps, and will introduce more than 25 missions and 40 new cards to the game. By completing missions within the new Story, players will unlock new cards available only via The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood, including three new Legendary cards.

The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood will be purchasable in-game as three individual maps or as a bundle for a special price of £19.99 and can also be bought with in-game gold. Those who pick up The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood will also receive the Doom Wolf mount in The Elder Scrolls Online (PC/Mac only) as a bonus. This is just the first step in better integrating Legends and The Elder Scrolls Online going forward.

Future Updates and Features Revealed

With the official launch on PC, Bethesda has also revealed the roadmap for a massive amount of new content and features coming in the next couple of months, including:

  • Global iPad Launch March 23: The Elder Scrolls: Legends will release on iPad later this month, making its global mobile debut on March 23. The game will be available for free in the App Store.
  • Global Android Tablet Launch April: Following quickly after iPad, the game will also release on Android tablets next month, expanding its reach to millions of additional devices worldwide.aa
