For all of you Skyrim fans out there who have been pining for a card game for Elder Scrolls, your 17 year waiting period has ended. The Elder Scrolls: Legends, a card game that has been in beta for nearly 17 years, came out for real on PC today. Publisher Bethesda says it’ll be out for iPad on March 23, Android tablets in April, Mac in May, and mobile phones this summer. According to Kotaku
Bethesda’s also adding a bunch of expansions and campaigns to the game, including “The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood” next month that will, presumably, tell the story of the fall of the Dark Brotherhood. Fahey enjoyed The Elder Scrolls: Legends when he checked it out last year, mostly for the single-player story content. And also because it’s got multiple lanes. And also because it’s way browner than Hearthstone.
Keep in mind folks, this isn’t your ordinary card game. Maybe you’re used to Freecell and Solitaire. This one’s slightly more complicated. As far as answering the question of why this was in beta for nearly 2 decades, it doesn’t appear anyone’s even asked Bethesda about it. Well, I am. Why was this game in beta for 17 years?
