The Elder Scrolls: Legends is a free-to-play strategy card game that takes place in the world of Tamriel.

The Elder Scrolls: Legends is a strategy card game that explores the series’ characters, creatures, deities, and lore. Whether you have 10 minutes or five hours, Legends provides a variety of gameplay modes and challenges that are easy-to-learn but difficult to master. Built with all levels of players in mind, Legends offers accessible gameplay for beginners who want to get started quickly, and the game’s depth keeps expert players engaged. With a wide variety of deck types and strategies, no two games are ever the same. Best of all, jumping into the game doesn’t cost a thing. Download Legends - for free - and see for yourself.

With new card and lane mechanics, a theme of transformation and insanity and a story that offers a mixture of both hilarity and tragedy, Legends players are in for a sweet(roll) treat.

The next major story expansion for Legends, Isle of Madness, arrives with chaos, calamity, conspiracy and (of course) cards galore! Over the course of three acts, Isle of Madness whisks players off to the Shivering Isles, where nothing is what it seems at first and no one can be trusted – least of all the Daedric Prince of Madness himself.

New Mechanic: Double Cards

Speaking of all-new cards, Isle of Madness debuts a whole new mechanic that will have players seeing double. Enter the Double Card – a card so nice, you can use it twice!

A Double Card captures the essence of two distinct cards housed in a single vessel. Once drawn, the card splits, granting you two cards in the place of one! After all, why settle between a Baliwog or a Spawn Mother when you can have both?

New Lane Conditions: Dementia & Mania

As players traverse the Isle of Madness, they will encounter all-new lane conditions that change up how they play their creatures. The Dementia Lane deals damage to opponents if you control the most powerful creature, while the Mania lane draws you a card for having the creature with the highest health.

Some cards within Isle of Madness can convert existing lanes into Mania or Dementia lanes, so keep a sharp mind and learn to master these new conditions so that the insanity consumes your opponents rather than you!

Starting now, you can pre-order Isle of Madness for $19.99 and receive all three acts once they become available, along with a bonus Prince of Madness card back and rare player title: “The Shivering.”

For those willing to fully devote themselves to Sheogorath’s anarchic ends (or just share his appreciation for flair) we are also offering the Isle of Madness Premium Pre-Order for $49.99.

The Isle of Madness Premium Pre-Order features all the content of the standard Isle of Madness pre-order with premium playsets of all 55 collectible cards instead, which all become available in your Collection upon release of the expansion! The Premium Pre-Order also includes a premium version of the Prince of Madness card back and an epic player title: “Master of Madness.”

Isle of Madness officially releases on January 24 for PC, iOS, and Android devices.

Key Features:

  • Play Your Way: Legends features five attributes: Strength (Red), Intelligence (Blue), Willpower (Gold), Agility (Green), and Endurance (Purple) - each providing in-depth systems for players to champion. Discover your favorite play style with cards you unlock for free. Become more powerful as you master a variety of decks and strategies, and test your skill against both human and computer opponents.
  • Depth of Play: Legends’ gameplay features a divided battlefield — “lanes” that deepen your strategy options. Using two lanes requires you to plan when and where you place your cards, and how you’ll defend and attack. A lane can even have a special condition that affects cards played there providing further challenges and opportunities.
  • Choose Your Path: Select your avatar from the nine well-known races of Tamriel, and receive gameplay rewards complimenting that race’s play style and unique in-game strengths. As you adventure through the game, your character gains levels and your card collection grows. Make choices during the single-player campaign that will unlock new cards and upgrade some basic cards to new versions. Legends allows you to change your approach to fit your playstyle and the decks that you want to build and play.
  • Story Mode: In The Elder Scrolls: Legends Story Mode, you must escape from dark cultists and follow a path that leads all the way to an Emperor in exile. On your journey you’ll face a variety of opponents with different abilities and powers based on their card decks and strategies. Story mode provides hours of single-player gameplay where you’ll earn new cards you can use to make your decks more powerful and versatile.
  • Arena Mode: Once you’ve learned the basics, enter ‘Arena Mode’ to battle AI or human opponents in a series of matches. Build your deck from the ground up and face AI opponents which become more and more challenging. Or, play against friends or other players where you’ll both create a deck and battle until one side dominates. The more wins you earn, the better your rewards. Every time you play in this mode you’ll find a unique and challenging experience.
