It seems like Bethesda's new game is set to dominate the digital card game market. The Elder Scrolls: Legends (TESLegends) works like Warcraft's Hearthstone but it offers campaign mode, ranked matches and a bunch of new, exciting features.
TESLegends is a card game based on the characters from Tamriel continent. In it, players have the option to work on a campaign against A.I, fight real opponents for fun or in ranked matches with pre-made cards, or draft a deck in the Area and fight with a limited pool of cards.
TESLegends and Hearthstone have some similarities. Players in both games start with a certain life total and use creatures and spells cards to defeat the enemy. In addition, players start with one mana (or Magicka in Hearthstone) and gain one additional unit at every turn.
In comparison to Clash Royale, players don't have to wait in every turn. Both players can attack or defend at the same time, as long as they have enough mana points to do it. The board in Clash Royale is composed of 2 Crown Towers and 1 King Tower, which players have to defend. Players win once they have the most Crown or defeated the opponent's King Tower.
TESLegends strays away from Hearthstone and Clash Royale in terms of gameplay. The battlefield in Legends is divided into two lanes. Players can put their creatures in the left or right lane, but they should keep in mind that creatures can only attack opposing creatures in the same lane. This feature encourages players to consider their card placement at every turn.
Furthermore, Runes and Prophecy cards set apart TESLegends from other digital card games in the market. At the start of the game, players have five runes. But they will lose one rune every time they lose five hit points.
Every time players lose a rune, they can draw a card, and if that card is a Prophecy card type, they can immediately summon it for free. This feature adds randomness to the game and gives players a chance for a comeback, according to Paul Tassi of Forbes.
It is also worth mentioning that the campaign mode in TESLegends is entertaining and avid fans of Skyrim will definitely love it. Aside from the compelling narrative, the campaign offers an awesome level up mechanic.
