About the game
The Elder Scrolls: Legends is a new strategy card game based on the world and lore of the award-winning Elder Scrolls series. You can play for hours or minutes across many game modes that are easy to learn but challenging to master. There are three ways to play this game:
- Play on your own where you can play solo and earn new Legends cards, decks, and packs. Or draft a deck from scratch and battle a series of computer opponents.
- Then you can play against others and test your decks against friends, challenge online opponents in ranked play, or draft a deck from scratch and battle other players who have done the same.
- Also pick your battles in the gameplay where you find a divided battlefield with “lanes” that deepen your strategy options.
Legends’ is simple to play. You work with a playing field of four squares – two for you and two for your opponent. The leader of your troops cards, you sit to the bottom of those lanes, commanding until your overall health is depleted. It’s displayed as a number around your avatar, that being surrounded by card-giving runes. Each card in your deck is dotted with three numbers – to the left, your attack strength and your defence stat to the right. The top left of each card shows the amount of magicka you need to actually be able to put it on the board.
You start with one magicka point, but that builds by one with each turn your take. If you don’t begin a round, you’ll also be given the chance to increase your magicka by one a total of three times. Low-level minions take one meager point, but large, terrifying creatures cost a whopping 7 points. Each turn you take means you’ll get a new card to use from your deck, and extra cards are automatically dealt to you as you take enough damage to destroy the runes that are tied to your commander’s health. A match is over when one commander’s health is depleted.
The standard card game stuff is all there – the ability to change out your deck alongside minion, creature and attack cards, buffs and the like – but in the end, it’s a numbers game dependent on just a matter of luck. You start off with three cards and have the ability to swap them out for a new roll, but if you start the game with three magicka-hungry cards, the waiting game may mean you’re toast.
Extra rules are easy to pick up. A new card can’t attack on its first turn – that is, unless the card explicitly states so. Guard cards have to be attacked first, ahead of other cards on the board or even the commander his or herself.
You can upgrade certain cards in Legends by winning games with decks that contain them. Level up your cards to improve your decks, give you more flexibility, and tailor them to your play style. With awesome graphics you will love this fun card game, based on a great fantasy game.
