The Elder Scrolls: Blades mobile game hit Early Access earlier last month and ever since its arrival, it has been performing incredibly well. Blades is a fully adapted RPG experience from the beloved Bethesda franchise made specifically to play on the go. A lot of people were pleasantly surprised as new information surfaced about the upcoming game, and that excitement is easy to see since the studio is celebrating over 1 million downloads since Blades launched in Early Access.

According to Sensor Tower, a site that tracks insights in the mobile market, reports over 1 million downloads in just the first week. The site also reports that the total revenue since its launch last week has gorssed over $500,000. What makes this feat incredible is that when the game first launched into Early Access, it was by invite only. Though that has since changed, 1 million users is no small accomplishment.
