The Elder Scrolls: Blades Switch Release Delayed, And Chest Timers Are Being Removed

The Elder Scrolls: Blades, which was announced for Switch during E3 2019, will not come to Nintendo’s console in 2019. Bethesda has announced that we’ll have to wait until early 2020 to start exploring Blades with Joy-Con in hand, but there’s good news too–a bevy of improvements have been made to the mobile version, and they’ll eventually make it into the Switch release too.

The big change is that chest timers are being removed in the upcoming update 1.5, which is due in early December. Once the update goes live, your chests will open right away rather than hitting you with a timer. This was a major complaint people had with the game, so it’s good to see it being removed. Loot drops are also being increased, meaning that enemies will grant you greater rewards when you kill them. There will be more loot-stuffed breakable objects too, so expect to do a lot of swiping at the screen.

PVP is also coming to the game, and will be available in the eventual Switch version. Any player above level 5 will be able to battle other players one-on-one, letting you win more loot and move up the leaderboards. Guilds will also be added in 1.5, and you’ll be able to visit your friend’s towns and purchase items from their merchants. All of these features will be cross-platform, so Switch players will be able to join mobile player’s guilds.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades released for mobile devices in April this year. Bethesda is currently looking to ramp up their mobile game production.
