The Elder Scrolls: Legends Isle Of Madness Details
In an interview with VG247, senior vice president of marketing, Pete Hines. Went into more detail on the new and upcoming expansion Isle of Madness.
For those of you who haven’t played Elder Scrolls: Legends there is a new expansion coming out for the game called Isle Of Madness, Hines had this to say about the expansion:
“Isle of Madness will be based around Sheogorath, because it’s his realm. He has been featured in Legends in a couple of places before. We did a Madhouse collection a while back which was ten cards themed around Sheogorath. At the time, we also released Chaos Arena, which was Sheogorath taking over Versus Arena and adding a bunch of wacky lane conditions over a weekend.”
“We injected him into the game a little bit, folks really liked it, and so we wanted to look for an opportunity to explore that a little bit more. Shivering Isles in Oblivion was a big inspiration, but as far as what the designers are going to do, what’s it’s going to include, that’s TBD.”
“If you’ve been following the cadence of stuff we’ve been doing, in terms of sizes you’ll probably have a good idea of where it’s going.”
Not only this but he also goes over if he believes bring the game to console will make a huge impact on the number of players, Hines had this to say:
“Yeah, I think so. We were pretty surprised when we did Fallout Shelter [for console] and it had been out for years on phones, on PC. We put it out on PS4, we put it out on Switch, and you get this giant explosion of players. It was like, ‘Who was waiting for it on the PS4?’ Well, maybe they weren’t. Maybe they played it on their phone, they stopped, and now they’re like, ‘Oh yeah, I want to load this up and do some stuff, play whatever for a few hours, come back and do some more stuff in my vault’. Because it is a game where you sort of graze at it a little bit, you don’t have to sit down and play it for five hours.”
“So, because of the way Legends works – it’s the same game on all platforms – you may be playing it on your phone and then move to Xbox because you’re like, ‘Oh, I just finished my Fortnite matches for the night and now I want to play a couple of games in the arena’.”
This is great news for fans of the game, as one there is a new expansion coming out and not only that but it appears that they are really pushing for a console release with cross-play in mind but with Sony, this might be hard to do.
