Card games based on popular video game franchises are all the rage right now, and Bethesda is getting into the act with its own version based on its Elder Scrolls franchise, announced last year at E3. Development is obviously in high gear, as the beta has finally begun.
Bethesda and developer ZeniMax have revealed that select registrants will be selected for to try out the strategy card game in the game's first closed beta for PC, and more will be chosen in coming months. Sign ups are still possible on the company website.
If you are hearing about this for the first time, here's the official line: "Legends is a strategy card game that explores the series’ characters, creatures, deities, and lore. Whether you have 10 minutes or ten hours, Legends provides a variety of gameplay modes and challenges that are easy-to-learn but difficult to master. Built with all levels of players in mind, Legends offers accessible gameplay for beginners who want to jump in and get started quickly, and the game’s depth keeps expert players engaged. With a wide variety of deck types and strategies, no two games are ever the same." Got it? If not, here's a video formore explanation:
The game is being developed in conjunction with Dire Wolf Digital, and has been announced for PC and iPad, but other platforms will be announced later. No release date or price has yet been revealed. The game will be on display at PAX East in Boston this weekend.
