Modiphius Entertainment partners with Bethesda for Elder Scrolls tabletop game

Modiphius Entertainment has unveiled a new narrative miniatures game based on The Elder Scrolls, th popular videogame franchise developed by Bethesda Game Studios.

Called The Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms, the new title brings tabletop wargaming to the fantasy world of Tamriel, building on core mechanics found in other Modiphius titles, such as Fallout: Wasteland Warfare. This new titl has been reworked by designer Matt Latham (The Walking Dead: All Out War, The Harry Potter Miniatures Adventure Game, and editor of White Dwarf Magazine) to suit of the world and inhabitants of The Elder Scrolls franchise.

Featuring 32mm resin figures, each with its own unique custom base, the skirmish system sees fan favourite heroes like Hadvar, Ralof, Yrsarald Thrice-Pierced, Marcurio, Mjoll the Lioness, Ulfric Stormcloak, Galmar Stone-Fist, General Tullius and Lydia.

The player’s heroes lead groups of followers on adventures inside Dwemer Ruins, Draugr-infested Nord Tombs, and through the frozen wilderness.

As well as controlling their troops, players will also need to manage the stamina and Magicka resources their models bring to the table, all the while watching out for hostile AI driven enemies and narrative events that can change the flow of battle.

Players can play against each other or team up (or play solo) to take on all manner of creatures and adversaries driven by Modiphius’ advanced AI system.

Modiphius plans promotional miniature releases in the lead up to the launch, starting with the iconic Dragonborn miniature, available now in limited quantities from Modiphius.net, or pick one up at the UK Games Expo show in June, or GenCon in August.

More special editions will be released through the year and will be available again after release.

The Elder Scrolls: Call to Arms will be available from Christmas 2019.
