It has been a long and agonizing wait getting to this point, but the first batch of mods for Fallout 4, Bethesda's hit title that was voted Game of the Year for 2015 at the 19th annual DICE Awards, has arrived for the PlayStation 4 console. Not to be taken for granted, this day almost never arrived, as Sony initially refused to approve mods as Bethesda wanted to implement them. "Sony has informed us they not approve user mods the way they should work: where users can do anything they want for either Fallout 4 or Skyrim Special Edition," Bethesda stated a in September. "Like you, we are disappointed... Read more...
You may have noticed that the audio in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition sounds a little off compared to the original title released five years ago. You may even have wondered if it was all in your head, that perhaps you were over analyzing the remastered version. That isn't the case. Other gamers have noticed it too, and Bethesda says it is working on a fix. The issue apparently has to do with Bethesda using an over aggressive compression scheme on the game's sound assets. That was the conclusion reached by Reddit forum member LasurArkinshade, who brought the issue to widespread attention... Read more...

At long last, Bethesda is bringing mod support for Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition to PlayStation 4 players after working out an arrangement with Sony. That was the plan all along, of course, with Bethesda originally intending to bring modding to the PS4 back in June. But then Sony set up a roadblock by refusing to approve mods as Bethesda wanted to implement them. "Sony has informed us they will not approve user mods the way they should work: where users can do anything they want for either Fallout 4 or Skyrim Special Edition," Bethesda stated a month ago. "Like you, we are disappointed by... Read more...
Last week, Bethesda rolled out the latest patch of many that Fallout 4 has received since its launch last fall, but this one didn't just smooth out lingering bugs. What it did do was completely break the mods that many gamers enjoy, even though the patch included an update to the company's own mod system, Bethesda.net Mods. You can imagine what happened next: absolute chaos! Fortunately, Bethesda clearly recognizes that the last thing that it wants to do is upset its fanbase, and quickly moved to right its wrong. Following the botched update, the company immediately pulled the patch back and let... Read more...
We’ve got some bad news to deliver for PlayStation 4 gamers out there (and no, we’re not talking about the lack of 4K Blu-ray disc support on the PlayStation 4 Pro). While PC gamers were blessed with Fallout 4 mods and the Creation Kit back in late April, Bethesda made it clear that the PlayStation 4 would receive support in June. That time has come and go, and we now know why. Bethesda announced today that it has suspended its plans to offer mod support on the PlayStation 4 for Fallout 4 and Skyrim. To put it bluntly, Sony was the primary reason for this decision — it was not due to any hardware... Read more...
Bethesda is wrapping up development on Nuka-World, it's final bit of DLC for its award winning Fallout 4 game. It's due for release at the end of the month, which even though at this point is less than a week away, feels like an agonizing wait for arguably the most anticipated add-on for Fallout 4. Ah, but don't fret—rather than pace around anxiously waiting for its release, you can spend an hour taking an extended look at actual game play footage from one of the developers. Nuka-World's lead artist Mark Teare joined Matt Grandstaff, Bethesda's global community lead, for an hour-long livestream... Read more...
Quake Champions was announced back in early June to much fanfare. The game, which is PC-only, is being billed as the ultimate eSports showcase for FPS gamers. However, the PC-only approach to the development of the game is sure to be a bummer for console gamers that have become accustomed to having access to hit PC games like Fallout 4 and DOOM. But given the stiff requirements of Quake Champions, consoles like the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One never had a chance (developer id Software is targeting 60+ fps and a targeted 120Hz refresh rate). Pete Hines, Bethesda’s marketing chief further explained... Read more...

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.
