Elder Scrolls: Blades will feature three distinct gameplay modes: Town Mode (City building), The Abyss (Roguelike) and The Arena (PvP battles). Bethesda

Bethesda describes The Elder Scrolls: Blades as a "classic dungeon crawler reimagined." In the intro video clip, players will take on the role of one of The Blades — a group of the Empire's top agents who have been forced into exile. Upon returning to their hometown, they discover it has been destroyed. The mission is to help rebuild the city via a series of quests which take players through dungeons, castles, and beautiful outdoor areas. Along the way, they'll unravel clues to an ancient mystery. The game will consist of three specific game play modes: Town Mode (city building), The Abyss (roguelike dungeon) and eventually, a PvP mode called The Arena where players can test their combat skills in real-time battles. It is unclear if the PVP mode will be available at launch.
