The Elder Scrolls: Blades Delayed to 2019

Upcoming free-to-play mobile title The Elder Scrolls: Blades from Bethesda is now delayed to early 2019.

Revealed back at E3 2018, The Elder Scrolls: Blades is the upcoming latest entry in The Elder Scrolls series from Bethesda Softworks. Though initial release date for the game was set to be in 2018, it currently is pushed back to early 2019.

The initial showing was quite impressive and the audience loved it but after the recent backlash with the release of Fallout 76, Bethesda probably decided to take time with their next free-to-play mobile title for Android and iOS devices.

Bethesda director Todd Howard says that, they only make Skyrim ports because fans are still buying it.

It's been seven years that action role-playing game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim from Bethesda Softworks has been released and players are still so passionate about the game even today. Keeping that in mind, publisher Bethesda is also releasing the game on various ports every now and then. There are running jokes among fans on them doing ports for Skyrim and game director Todd Howard simply suggested them to stop playing the game if they want all these ports.

The latest in the line of ports for Skyrim has made available for Amazon Echo after it was ported to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, VR and Xbox One. When they dropped a commercial starring Keegan-Michael Keys playing it on the device, many have thought of it as a spoof.

Recently, company director Todd Howard is awarded as "Industry Legend" at the annual Gamelab event in Barcelona for his contribution on Fallout and The Elder Scrolls series. Afterwards in an interview with Geoff Keighley, he states their reason for regularly making ports for Skyrim, which is simply because fans keep buying the game over and over. He made a valid point with that comment because TESV remains to be the most popular among the franchise till date.

"Even now, the amount of people who play Skyrim seven years later; millions of people every month are playing that game. That's why we keep releasing it. If you want us to stop releasing it, stop buying it."

Skyrim offer players to assume the role of Dragonborn, a mortal man with the soul and power of a dragon, who is destined to save humanity from a fabled black dragon named Alduin. A massive open world environment is up for exploring during the quest and may compelling RPG elements increases replay value for the title. Although The Elder Scrolls VI has been teased during E3, it is still in early development phase and ain't coming anytime soon.

Reportedly, TESV: Skyrim is listed as one of the games on Steam with most concurrent number of players alongside titles like Civilization V, Payday 2 and Rocket League, amassing more than 50,000 players simultaneously. Todd wants the worlds of Bethesda to be sustainable as long as he is here and since the game still sells, releasing newer ports isn't that bad of an idea. Maybe gamers are simply worried thinking that re-releasing an old game probably burns out creative energy of developers.

Doom, Fallout 4 and Skyrim VR Release Date

Virtual reality is becoming a trend these days and it is also impacting the video game industry. Many studios who realize the potential of riding this tide are releasing VR versions of their popular titles now to give their fans an all-new 3D experience and Bethesda Softworks decides to be wise like that. So, what they did is that they have taken projects of pre-existing games like Doom, Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to produce VR versions for them.

Doom, Fallout 4 and Skyrim VR Release Date

Doom
Aside from the superior graphics excellence of modern time, Doom actually hasn't evolved from its core concept of shooting massive hordes of demons from Mars, beside the improved visuals have amplified the intensity of the game even more. We are not saying that's a bad thing but how about getting a bit more up close and personal with the minions of Hell? That wouldn't be so bad and Bethesda already gave us a preview of how it would look like at E3 2017 Showcase. We agree that Doom VFR will blow first person shooter loving gamers mind if not the brains.




Fallout 4
Fallout 4 is perhaps the most successful title of the entire Fallout series and probably that is why Bethesda has chosen the title for a VR treatment. As you struggle to survive in a post-apocalyptic world, the virtual reality makes the aspects of the game pretty real to you. The entire game is re-imagined and you will notice that in combat and crafting. It's not just a tour of the Wasteland but the complete in-game world of the original game and t hat includes hundreds of locations. Even if you have played Fallout 4 before, this is a chance to experience the game once more with a new perspective.




The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The entire open world of action role-playing game Skyrim along with three of its official DLC; Dawnguard, Dragonborn and Hearthfire are what you are getting in Skyrim VR. The scale and depth of this epic fantasy is re-imagined as you fight to save the world from the menace of the fabled dragon Alduin the World-Eater. Fighting dragons and exploring mountains will be more lifelike now than it was when you played Skyrim previously. Be sure to choose your own way to roam this open world as you play.




What we learn about the release dates for these VR projects are that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will see release for PlayStation VR on November 17 and then on HTC Vive at some point in 2018. Doom VFR will come out next on December 1 for PlayStation VR and Vive. Fallout 4 VR will be released on PC for the HTC Vive and the release date is December 12. So, we can be pretty thankful to Bethesda Softworks for bringing us all these virtual reality games throughout the year and expect them to create some original VR games as well.
