We’ve reported on The Elder Scrolls: Blades several times in the past, but those were mostly bad news of it getting delayed times and times again. But this time there’s finally some good news for those who are looking forward to the mobile arrival of Bethesda’s iconic RPG series. Last year, the game was estimated to launch on March 31, but now the developer has suddenly changed the release date of The Elder Scrolls: Blades to March 28, that is, today. That’s right, you can download the game from Google Play or the App Store right now.

If for some reason you have not heard of The Elder Scrolls: Blades, it is a full, genuine Elder Scrolls experience on your phone. Of course, due to the more restrictive nature of the platform, especially when it comes to controls, Blades will focus more on linear gameplay rather than free open-world exploration of the likes of Oblivion or Skyrim. Still, with beautiful visuals and a responsive combat system, it certainly looks promising.

However, being able to download the app doesn’t mean you can just open it and immediately jump into the game. You need a Bethesda account for that, and so we still have to wait until Bethesda implements its early access process. Additionally, some people who have already got the game have reported on Twitter that the developer plans to launch the servers on the intended date of March 31, and so you won’t be able to do much with The Elder Scrolls: Blades until then.

Still, since the game is now officially launched on the app stores, we don’t have to worry about it suffering the same fate Infinity Blade: Dungeons and getting delayed indefinitely anymore. Bethesda is reportedly sending out invites to users who previously pre-registered on the official website of the game. If you did, be sure to check your e-mail regularly to see if you receive a notice from the developer.

If you didn’t pre-register before, you can still do right now, but it’s unclear whether that’ll make any difference. Still, it doesn’t cost anything, so you might as well do it just to be sure. Also, don’t forget to stay tuned for more updates.
