Elder Scrolls Legends hits Android and iOS mobile devices today

Fancy a trip to Tamriel, but don’t want to sit at your PC? The Elder Scrolls franchise TCG, Elder Scrolls Legends, has hit Android and Apple phones as of today, and it includes the Heroes of Skyrim expansion that hit on PC, Mac, and tablets earlier this summer.

The Elder Scrolls: Legends, the strategy card game based on the award-winning Elder Scrolls series, is now available to download for free on iOS and Android phone devices via the App Store and Google Play store, respectively. Featuring a new streamlined interface designed to take advantage of smaller screen sizes, now is the perfect time to jump into the fray. For players just joining the action, the recently-launched Heroes of Skyrim expansion based on fan-favorite characters, lore, and abilities from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim added more than 150 new cards to collect, plus new mechanics, powerful abilities, and more. Easy to learn but difficult to master, The Elder Scrolls: Legends features a deep and flexible deck-building system and a variety of modes for both casual and competitive players, including a single-player Story Mode, Versus Mode, and Arena Mode against both human and AI opponents.”

I’m not even a TCG person and I’m gonna give it a go because yay, free things.

Thank god they haven’t done this with dragon age or we’d all be penniless.

TCG’s have waaay to much meta to them. You need to have this deck with these specific cards to even come close to winning.

When they released it on Steam I gave it a shot and played the free campaign (the glorified tutorial) and I was quite impressed with the effort behind it.

I played it for a couple weeks and enjoyed it. Only reason I downloaded it on my phone was because I pre-registered it by the lure of a free card lol.

Curiosity got the better of me and I gave it a go on my android tablet. Much to my surprise it’s not horrible and I actually had fun.

Not sure how long I will play though as I tend to get bored of tcg’s but it is a fun diversion for now.


This is a very enjoyable game that I recommend.

I loaded this up on my iPad for my travel days. So far, I’m loving it. I haven’t engaged other players yet, but I am enjoying the story mode. I can’t compare it to other card games, but if I can lose myself for 3 hours and feel like the time just melted away, then it’s a worthwhile game to keep on my tablet.

Elder Scrolls Legends made a more favorable impression on me that Hearthstone did. The addition of a second lane to the board is a tremendous breath of fresh air, and the game is pretty generous about handing out enough cards for several decks with different strategic options over the course of the free story mode.

Still, it’s a collectible card game, so power creep is built into the business model, and free players can expect to get mercilessly smoked by players who have opened up their wallets and stocked up on cards from the DLC stories and Skyrim expansion packs.

I would have to disagree with your statement regarding their business model. I think it is the best I have seen in card games. You can buy the DLC stories with ingame gold that you get by doing dailies. This is how I bought the Dark Brotherhood DLC, without investing a dime. Not only did I get an amazing story and more cards; I also received a Doom wolf mount for the Elder Scrolls Online, for free.
Since they released Twitch drops, every 24 hours or so you get 600 gold, 1500 soul gems or one legendary pack, again for free. I think this has allowed all players to be equally competitive in the game.
