Players have physical figures and use them on a table with terrain to tactically play battles. Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms is a miniatures war/skirmish game where you'll be playing out storylines and quests in either solo, co-op vs AI, or traditional battle mode against your friends as well as in the future a possibility of a campaign mode where players will take up a settlement.[2]

The Fallout: Wasteland Warfare system has been rewritten and changed to suit the The Elder Scrolls franchise.[1]

The player's heroes lead groups of followers on adventures and battle. Armies usually comprise 1–6 heroes and 3–15 troops.[1]
