The Elder Scrolls: Legends exited beta and entered its full release version a little while ago on PC, with the promise that more platforms were coming soon. First up is iPad and it is out today for the tablet device. Featuring a unique card game system, many feel that iPad is the preferred way to play the game, which is why it was Bethesda’s top priority after the initial PC release.
You can download The Elder Scrolls: Legends on iPad for free right here from the Apple App Store. “The game requires iOS 10 or higher and is compatible with iPad 4 and later devices,” explains Bethesda.
The Elder Scrolls: Legends draws from the titular RPG series with characters, gameplay elements, and much more. Players develop decks of cards which they then take into battle against other players, or against enemy AI in the campaign mode. Differing from other games in the genre, The Elder Scrolls Legends has a two lane system where players have to attack and defend from both sides of the board.
Player progress is synced between all versions of the game, so if you’ve been playing on PC you can just pick up the iPad version and not miss a beat. Your cards and player history will be synced over without any worry.
I recently played The Elder Scrolls: Legends on iPad and it’s definitely a more engaging experience compared to PC. The touch controls just make it feel so much more visceral and real in terms of picking up and playing cards. It’s also a lot easier to make choices quickly, selecting with the tap of a finger, rather than moving the mouse around and clicking.
The Elder Scrolls: Legends is also set to arrive on Android and Mac devices in the future, so watch for those announcements when they hit.
