The Elder Scrolls: Blades early access available now for some

Those invited to the early access launch of The Elder Scrolls: Blades can now start playing.

Bethesda has officially soft-launched The Elder Scrolls: Blades, the mobile action RPG announced at E3 last year. Blades was initially intended for launch last year, but was pushed back in November.

Those who signed up at the official website are being invited in waves, Bethesda said. This goes for both Android, and iOS. This is not a limited test, Bethesda simply wants to slowly let players in to prevent problems.

You can't sign up for early access anymore, but you certainly can download the game on Android, and iOS - though you obviously won't be able to play without an invite at this early stage.

Once downloaded, Blades will ask you to turn on notifications so it can let you know when you can log in.

Blades supports iPhone 6s and newer, iPad Air 2 and higher, and Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ or higher. Read on below for the full list of supported devices at launch.
