With Hearthstone swiftly becoming the most popular card game the world has ever known, digital or physical, its no wonder that other companies are trying their hand at creating a worthy competitor, someone to steal a bit of thunder away from Blizzard's giant.

It is with this sort of idea in mind that Bethesda has created The Elder Scrolls: Legends, a free-to-play digital card game that on first glance seems to be heavily inspired by Hearhstone, but in reality is an entirely different beast altogether. If you're wondering how exactly it differs from Hearthstone, and more importantly, what sort of strategies you can pull off, here's an hour-long developer video showcasing the arena game mode:


If all of this has now piqued your interest and you would like to give The Elder Scrolls: Legends a try, you can do so by heading over to the official website.
