The Elder Scrolls: Legends is Bethesda's take on Hearthstone

I'm not sure if you've noticed, but Hearthstone has become quite the juggernaut when it comes to online card games, beating even Magic the Gathering Online despite it having years of advantage and an incredibly well designed interface and intuitive controls.

As you might imagine, with popularity comes competition, this time around from Bethesda and their The Elder Scrolls: Legends, a card game that might initially seem eerily similar to Hearthstone, but which brings some interesting ideas to the table. Here's the gameplay trailer so you can get the gist of it:


The Elder Scrolls: Legends is currently in a closed beta state, but the first few waves of invites have already started flying out, so if you would like to give it a try make sure to sign up for the beta, and hope for the best. Also, if you would like to learn more about the design process behind TES: Legends, as well as various gameplay details, head over to this rather in-depth Bethesda blog post.

While I know very little about The Elder Scrolls: Legends, I do wish it the very best because with a big name like Bethesda behind it there's an actual chance it will prove to be a real competitor to Hearthstone, something that would benefit players all across the entire genre. Bethesda has already managed to do it somewhat successful with The Elder Scrolls: Online, so it certainly wouldn't be unheard of.
