The Elder Scrolls: Blades was taken out of early access today with Update 1.7 and released on the Nintendo Switch. It’s downloadable now for free via the Nintendo eShop.
If you’ve been following it, Blades has grown with each update with feedback from players. The developers have delivered the PvP Arena, guilds, loadouts, new quests, the removal of chest timers, and more.
Thanks to cross-progression, players can pick up their adventures on Switch right where they left off on mobile. However, you’ll need to link your Bethesda.net account. Cross-platform functionality also allows players to chat with their guild members and battle other players in the Arena, regardless of the platform.
The Switch launch isn’t the only news. Update 1.7. is also available today in The Elder Scrolls: Blades. As a special thank you, a brand-new decoration is now available for free for Early Access players, just by logging in.
Challenge the Grand Champion and go on all-new quests
Update 1.7 introduces six never-before-seen quests, including a new questline that plays in the same style as Blades’ PvP Arena mode, challenging players to battle through a gauntlet of progressively stronger opponents leading up to the Grand Champion.
Arena Rewards and Guild Leaderboards
Update 1.7 resets the PvP leaderboards and will reward additional prizes like Gems, Health Potions, and Chests to players based on the Arena they’ve reached – as well as a unique helm for top-ranked players.
