It's a half arsed game that they designed around micro-transactions.

Cold. Not free as you need to buy a Switch to play it.


You must be joking

Free? Excellent, looks good, anyone played?
Played it on mobile when it first came out, it’s limited, but looks great.
It’s free anyway

There's no harm in making people aware that it's available, is there?

Heated, OP - I've popped this together yesterday in case anybody wants a little more info regarding its move from out of Early Access and the updates in patch 1.7
never played an ES game but its free so why not...
Isn't this more of a discussion than deal? All the Kirby posts got made into a discussion
NICEEEEE

Well technically, you're in the freebies section, so I'd expect to see the occasional free items
I think its free, but thereare micro transactions.
Edited by: "FRESHHHH" 14th May
Played this since release and not spent a penny, micro transactions really aren’t needed and this is one of the best freemium games in terms of fairness
I played it on mobile but it made my hand hurt. Will check if it's better on Switch.
And it only took them 2 years to get it out on a platform other than mobile. Bodes well for ES6 😜

What happened to the motion controls? I can’t seem to find them, this is direct from Bethesda site:

“Using Nintendo Switch’s unique features, players can enjoy Blades docked in TV mode for big-screen adventuring or go on a journey in Handheld or Tabletop mode. Blades also takes advantage of the Joy-Con’s motion control for an immersive new way to play.” :/

How come my joke gets two likes, while you explaining it was a joke gets 6?

Sorry Mr Albert - them's the breaks!
Downloaded this for my android (You can use the same save file if you link it to your Bethesa account on your phone/tablet and log in on your Switch), imo the switch port makes it a bit more enjoyable to play, but only tried a few quests and didn't have the drive to do more.

As long as you go in knowing what to expect, a mobile game that's been reworked to work with a controller (and it's a pretty good port for what it is), you should be fine, but it is still a canned experience imo, mostly focused around small dungeon crawls.

Stay the hell away from it. Full of microtransactions. They're everywhere. You have to wait up to days for chests to open unless you pay.
Don't waste your bandwidth,load of rubbish.
Are the haters judging this by mobile game standards or switch game standards, as micro transactions and waiting etc is commonplace in mobile games
Oh, this piece of garbage actually released?

I remember seeing this be revealed and being so hyped and then I saw MICRO TRANSACTIONS and MOBILE.
No thankyou. Cold.

"Garbage"?

YEEHAW YANKEE DOODLE FREEDOM SAUCE.its "rubbish" here in good old Blighty.

Also voting cold as this isn't a deal and the game is awful.

I actually downloaded it on the switch last night,have never played the mobile version.So I'm not doing a comparison on both,as I've only played the switch version and it's total rubbish even for free.

I dont mind these games where theres a lot of waiting as you can just dip in and out of them.
There not the sort of games you play for long periods like the original skyrim, unless of course you like to spend £££ on pretend stuff
I've put hours into this on my note 9 and since it left early access the frame rate has dropped massively. I agree you don't need any micro transactions but the game is a bit samey. Quests involve making your way through a generic looking cave or outside area killing a few trolls or creatures or little goblin things and levelling up your character I've stopped playing it now

Being commonplace doesn't make it any better.
Imagine playing a bethesda game in current year!?
Not a sale it’s a Premium F2P game
Downloaded it. Played once. Deleted it. It's not very good
The Game is free. That is the only good thing about this game. Not worth to play and waste time.
