No, it’s not The Elder Scrolls VI, but a new game set in Bethesda Games Studios’ fantasy universe did just release with no warning whatsoever: The Elder Scrolls: Castles.

Currently available as a free download on the Google Play Store and listed as being in early access, The Elder Scrolls: Castles is described as putting players in control of a medieval dynasty, where they’ll oversee a castle of subjects and family members as the years go by. The game doesn’t yet look to be available on iOS or on PC, and from what we can tell, wasn’t ever officially announced.

One look at the screenshots brings to mind 2015’s Fallout Shelter, a mobile game revolving around managing one of the iconic Vaults from Bethesda’s popular post-apocalyptic RPG series. It looks like players build their castle much in the same way it worked in Fallout Shelter. Another screenshot invites players to complete “epic quests” and shows a party of characters battling a massive red dragon, while another highlights a ruler on their throne making decisions about what, in this case, seems to be a trivial matter related to someone’s lack of musical talent.
