"The Elder Scrolls: Legends," originally released for PC on March 9, is now playable on the iPad.

"The Elder Scrolls: Legends" is a strategy card game developed by Dire Wolf Digital that is based on the "Elder Scrolls" series of Bethesda. Its story involves players joining the Dark War in order to prevent the Dominion Army from taking over Cyrodiil.

The game seems to be designed as a virtual version of "Magic the Gathering," with players collecting cards in order to battle with virtual or online opponents. Characters, places, and creatures from the game series are featured on each card. Players can summon warriors and creatures based on what they have on hand.

Another similarity with "Magic the Gathering" is that this comes with different decks. Players can develop decks using two of five attributes — strength, intelligence, willpower, agility, and endurance. Completing decks will form a character class that exhibits the attributes. For example, an "Archer" deck will be created by combining strength and agility, while "Mage" can be formed by coupling willpower with intelligence. Choosing the right combination will be the key to victory in this game.

"The Elder Scrolls: Legends" is a free-to-play game that can be downloaded from the App Store. However, it can only be played on iPad 4 models or newer. Users need to upgrade their iOS to iOS 10 or higher to play the game. "The Elder Scrolls: Legends" will also be released for Android devices and other Apple products by summer.

A new update, "The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood," is set for release this April on "The Elder Scrolls: Legends" for PC and iPad users. This storyline is tied to the item "Cicero's Journal," written by the mad jester from "The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim." Here, players will infiltrate the Dark Brotherhood, an order of assassins, to undermine it from within.
