All good things eventually come to an end, and sadly, Bethesda's VP of marketing Pete Hines confirmed on Twitter that Nuka World will be the last expansion for Fallout 4.

Bethesda's always done a splendid job immersing gamers into post apocalyptic societies with its Fallout series, but in the words of Pete Hines, VP of Marketing for Bethesda, "You ain't seen nothing yet." HInes is referring to Bethesda's plans to bring the world of Fallout 4 into the virtual realm with a version built for VR headsets. Hey, why not? Virtual reality is the hottest thing right now and even if it does turn out to be a passing fad, it will take its sweet time moseying by. And on the flip side, VR could be here to stay, especially with ports like Fallout 4 in the works. Forget about gimmicky... Read more...
Scheduled fixes for the Xbox Store didn't go quite as planned for Microsoft heading into the weekend. For a short period, the Fallout 4 Digital Deluxe Bundle was being given away for free as a digital download to Xbox One owners, and as you might imagine, many gamers pounced on the deal. It was inevitable that Microsoft would catch wind of the pricing error, and now that it has, licenses are being revoked.The bundle includes every bit of DLC Bethesda has ever released for Fallout 4, including Far Harbor, Wasteland Workshop, and Automatron, along with a Season Pass for all future Fallout 4 DLC,...

Once upon a time, the land of Far Harbor was shrouded in a patchy, low framerate fog? Bethesda recommends that users who have experienced performance issues with Fallout 4 Far Harbor re-download the DLC. The issue was particularly prevalent with consoles, especially the PS4. The framerates would actually drop to 15fps in some of the worst areas. Although the unusual solution does fix the problem, some have complained that the lack of fog takes away from the experience of the DLC. The fog is actually a plot line in the Far Harbor DLC. The island was taken over by a radioactive fog and the dangerous... Read more...
Bethesda is getting ready to send Fallout 4 fans to the high seas with Far Harbor, the third and most ambitious DLC pack for the post-apocalyptic title that was honored as Game of the Year at the DICE Awards, but what comes next? Perhaps a trip to a wasteland theme park called Nuka World, which holds all sorts of fun possibilities. Reddit forum member "flashman7870" data mined Fallout 4's game files and posted an interesting screenshot of what he found. There were three entries of note, including "DLCNukaWorld.esm," "DLCworkshop02.exm," and "DLCworkshop03.esm." Bethesda often uses the file extension... Read more...
Late last month, Bethesda released the Creation Kit as a free download for those that want to take a stab at building Mods for Fallout 4. The Creation Kit isn’t just some second-rate tool that was tossed at gamers; instead, these are the same tools that the developers used to make Fallout 4 and its DLC content like Far Harbor. With that in mind, the fine folks over at NVIDIA are calling on the gaming community to create Mods and the payoff will be YUGE, in the words of Donald Trump. Gamers are being tasked to create Mods that fit into the following four Categories: Status: Mods that alter the functionality... Read more...
We’re getting incredibly close to the May 13th launch of the latest addition to the Doom franchise, and we’re getting excited about the prospects of deftly separating demon heads from their possessed bodies. In an effort to pump up gamers even more ahead of the official launch next week, Bethesda has released a launch trailer for Doom in which they urge you to “Fight like hell.” Message received. Bethesda saved the best for last, as this is easily the best Doom trailer released yet and gives us a great look at the single-player campaign (although there doesn’t appear to be any footage of the multiplayer...

We first heard about Bethesda’s first three DLC packs for Fallout 4 back in mid-February. Two of those packs — Automatron and Wasteland Workshop — have already been released. The final and most ambitious expansion, Far Harbor, now has a definite release date: May 19th. Bethesda describes the add-on, stating: In Far Harbor, a new case from Valentine’s Detective Agency leads you on a search for a young woman and a secret colony of synths. Travel off the coast of Maine to the mysterious island of Far Harbor, where higher levels of radiation have created a more feral world. Navigate through the growing... Read more...

For those that want to take a stab at creating their own Mods, Bethesda is providing the Creation Kit as a free download. According to the developer, the Creation Kit is the same tool that it used to create Fallout 4 and its DLC, so it comes from fine pedigree. And just in case you need a little extra help building...

There are myriad reasons why a game like Fallout 4 is so good, from its sheer depth to its flexibility. That latter point ties into modding, which Bethesda is happy to not just let fans dive into, but is proud to support. As one reddit user has discovered, though, there is one major caveat to be aware of if you want to use FO4 mods: no achievements. In his post, reddit user HakfDuckHalfMan notes that games in FO4 that have enabled mods are treated as completely separate from ordinary ones. An example given: If your username is John, the next time you save a game with a mod enabled, a "John [Modded]"... Read more...
If you’re a fan of the Doom franchise and have fostered an itchy trigger finger at the prospect of blasting opponents into giblet with your shotgun, your time has finally come. The Doom multiplayer open beta is now live on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and via Steam. Now granted, this multiplayer beta is only open through the weekend, and there will only be two maps to choose from during its brief period of availability. Likewise, you’ll have to contend with just two game modes, one playable demon and just seven weapons. Sure, it’s limited, but we’ll take what we can get at this point. After being teased...
