―App store description[5]

The Elder Scrolls: Legends (stylized as The Elder Scrolls: LEGENDS™)[2] is a free-to-play digital card game spin-off of The Elder Scrolls franchise. Announced at E3 2015 during Bethesda's Press Conference, it will be available on both iPad and PC.[3][6][7] Although it was initially planned for release in Fall 2015,[1][8] the game was officially released for PC on March 9th, 2017.[4][9] A storymode called The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood was released on April 5th, 2017, while the first expansion, Heroes of Skyrim, releases on June 29th, 2017.

The game features both multiplayer gamemodes, consisting of regular battles and versus arena, and singleplayer gamemodes, consisting of the main campaign, solo arena, and practice mode.



After character creation, the following cutscene will begin:

Kellen: "The Elder Scrolls show us what was, and what yet will be. And they have revealed much to me."
Isha: "Spare us your stories, old man, unless they can sharpen spears. Our warchief is dying. Our enemies are massing for another attack. We must prepare for battle."
Nagh: "We should go, Kellen. We have the scroll we came for, and this one smells blood in the wind."
Kellen: "Patience Nagh, I have words yet to speak here. Stories can do surprising things, spearmaiden, whether they are true or not. And this is one you should hear. It comes from the Great War that nearly ended the empire. It began when the High Elves slaughtered every Imperial Blade. Calling themselves the new Aldmeri Dominion, they and their allies swept through the land... even capturing the Imperial City itself. The emperor fled north, leaving Cyrodiil to the invaders. This is the story of a forgotten hero who changed the very course of history."

The transition to another cutscene will then occur:

Reive: "Bring me a warrior with strength and courage. That Nord looks adequate. Bring the mortal forth. And for his opponent... that one!"


At the game's E3 announcement, it was planned to be release in Fall 2015,[1] though this was later postponed to 2016 and eventually 2017.[8][10] Bethesda's Vice President Pete Hines said in an interview that the game will have a beta. Initially, the beta will be closed and only a select few beta testers will be permitted, but it is planned that over time the number of beta testers will increase. Following that, the game will have an open beta.[11]

On April 21, 2016, Bethesda announced more details on Legends and launched sign-ups for the closed beta, though content would be under a Non-disclosure Agreement (NDA).[12][13] The Legends brand manager has stated they will be adding more people over time.[14] Pete Hines has also stated that the NDA will be dropped before open beta.[15] On July 27, 2016, Bethesda announced that the NDA would be lifted, so players would be free to discuss and share the content of the beta freely.[16]. On August 4th, the game entered open beta stage.[17] The game was released for iPad in Canada on October 6th, 2016 for public testing.[5] It was stated that small regional releases would be done to make sure the game worked properly on platforms, before releasing the game worldwide.[18]
