Elder Scrolls Legends’ new PvE expansion includes an Elder Scrolls Online mount

It’s been a big spring so far for The Elder Scrolls Legends, Bethsoft’s Elder Scrolls franchise online collectible card game. Just a month ago, the game ripped off the beta tag for its formal PC launch. Then it launched for tablet iOS. This week, the game has introduced players to the assassins guild with its first content injection, dubbed Fall of the Dark Brotherhood. It’s just shy of 20 bucks if you’re buying it for cash, although the studio says you can pick it up for in-game gold too.

“The Fall of The Dark Brotherhood is a new PvE Story that tosses players into the role of a double agent hired to infiltrate the ranks of the fabled Dark Brotherhood. Recruited by a sinister group to bring down the infamous Elder Scrolls guild of lethal assassins, players will need to make key choices that both impact which missions they will play and determine how the story unfolds. This massive new adventure takes place prior to the events of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and is broken into three sections, or maps, introducing more than 25 missions and 40 new cards to the game. By completing missions within the new Story, players will unlock new cards available only via The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood, including three new Legendary cards. Players will face a variety of new challenges, lane conditions, and scenarios as they play through the new Story. There’s a pig you have to keep alive, a fight that takes place during a ball where things keep moving around, a prison fight, a skooma den battle, and much more.”

Betawatch: The soft launch of Revelation Online (March 10, 2017)

Revelation Online departs the hallowed halls of Betawatch this week, having emerged from closed beta into open beta. No more wipes are planned, and the game is now freely accessible, making the My.com import well and truly soft-launched. Fly free, my pretty! What else happened in the world of MMO betas this week?

  • Elder Scrolls Legends dumped the beta tag entirely and is now officially launched on PC.
  • Shards Online is getting a name change ahead of its planned Steam early access launch. You may now refer to it as Legends of Aria.
  • The Repopulation’s alpha is expected to resume this weekend under the new ownership. Welcome back, Repop! Don’t screw this up!
  • Gigantic just cannot catch a break: It laid off a sizable portion of its staff with the aim of “reducing the burn rate” until it can emerge from open beta and land on Arc later this year.
  • Project Gorgon tasked players with testing dungeon difficulty.
  • Camelot Unchained is still teasing its long-delayed beta one, but it sounds as if we’re inching closer now.
  • Albion Online is pushing out a big patch next week, heavily overhauling the beta.
  • Crowfall is working toward 24-7 test servers.
  • LawBreakers is planning a big beta weekend later this month. Breakin’ the law!

Follow along below for the complete list of all the games still on the grill.

Elder Scrolls Legends plans PvE update, major expansion, and multiple platform rollouts

Elder Scrolls Legends, the online TCG spawned from the ever-popular Elder Scrolls franchise, has a massive infodump and launch today. For starters, the game formally landed on PC; the beta tag has been stripped away. Bethsoft has earmarked March 23rd for the iOS tablet launch, April for the Android tablet rollout, spring for Mac, and summer for iOS and Android phones. May will see the release of Twitch integration, spectator mode, and a gauntlet mode for tourneys. And April 5th will see the game’s first PvE content explosion:

“We’re also revealing our first content update for The Elder Scrolls: Legends, The Fall of The Dark Brotherhood, a new PvE Story that tosses players into the role of a double agent hired to infiltrate the ranks of The Dark Brotherhood. Recruited by a sinister group to bring down the infamous and fan-favorite Elder Scrolls guild of lethal assassins, players will need to make key choices that both impact which missions you’ll play and decide the story’s ending.”

Also coming this summer? A “major expansion” — expect more info at E3. Could be neatly linked up with Elder Scrolls Online’s Morrowind, yeah?

Betawatch: Elder Scrolls Legends opens up (August 5, 2016)

If you’ve been waiting for something a bit more scroll-happy before jumping on the virtual card game train, you’ll be happy to know that Elder Scrolls Legends has passed from the forbidding desert of closed beta into the verdant fields of open beta. Seriously, you can jump in and start playing the game right now if you’d like. It’s the newest card game for people who would rather play a card game without quite so many actual cards.

Other beta news? No, there’s none. By which we of course mean “yes, there’s quite a bit.”

And, naturally, there’s that full list down below. See something that switched modes unexpectedly and has a full cash shop running? Argue that something counts as launch? Just like posting about betas with no NDA in place? All of that is welcome down in the comments.

Betawatch: Shroud of the Avatar is proudly persistent (July 29, 2016)

Let’s make something clear: Shroud of the Avatar has not launched, it’s just handled its final server wipe and will now be persistent moving forward. Which is different from launch because the developers say so. It was a pretty big deal when it happened, considering that the developers also ran a big telethon at the same time. There’s also a land “rush” of sorts, but if you didn’t buy in at a big tier ages ago, it’ll probably be a while before you need to worry about that.

Elsewhere in the beta world, there was… well, testing. You know.

This is just a sampling of stuff that’s in testing, of course; there are more titles in the list we keep down below. If something dropped in a cash shop without letting us know or surreptitiously changed test phases, please, do let us know about it down in the comments.

Elder Scrolls Legends drops NDA, gives tips for advanced deck building

30If you have been playing in the Elder Scrolls Legends beta, we want to hear about your experiences. And it is now OK to share those, too, as Bethesda has lifted the NDA for the test, making all impressions and streams from the beta fair game.

Whether you have been playing the game for a while or are thinking of giving it a try in the future, you might want to read up on Legends’ advanced deck building tips from the developers themselves.

The team said that there are four basic types of decks in the game: aggro, midrange, control, and combo. No matter which one you pursue, you’ll be wanting to look for ways that cards can interact in complimentary fashions: “When building your deck, you may want to eschew the typical deck building conventions and focus on a particular synergy.”

The Elder Scrolls Legends shows off its Arena mode

It could be argued that the real test of skills in The Elder Scrolls Legends – and any card game of its type, really – isn’t just playing with a constructed deck but taking part in a draft. Can you put together a new deck from random cards and play it effectively in one sweeping motion? You’ll be able to find out if that’s something you can do with the game’s new Arena mode.

Once you pay your entry fee and pick your class for the Arena, you’ll be presented with a sequence of draft picks, choosing one card of three until you have a grand total of thirty cards. You’ll then use that deck to take on either AI opponents in a Solo Arena or other players in a Versus Arena. After three losses, you’re out of the Arena, although you will earn gold, card upgrades, new cards, and so forth. Each victory also gives you another card to draft for your deck, so you have every reason to crack your knuckles and prove that you can adapt and play on the fly.
