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...
First announced at E3 2016, Doom’s Unto the Evil DLC is now available for download on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. The download, which is actually the first DLC for Doom, brings with its three new multiplayer maps (Offering, Cataclysm and Ritual) to keep you busy. If that wasn’t enough, there’s a new playable demon (Harvester) and a new weapon (UAC EMG Pistol) to wreak havoc with. The PartyPlay system also allows anyone to join in on Unto the Evil fragging action as long as one of your participating “party” friends has purchased the DLC. There are also new taunts, armor sets and hack... Read more...

The trailer features fast-paced gameplay, tricked-out weapons, and a lot of spurting blood. Quake Champions was announced at Bethesda’s E3 2016 showcase. Tim Willits, Studio Director of id Software stated, “20 years ago, Quake set new standards for multiplayer competition and pushed the boundaries for graphics and gameplay.

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. However, before the post-apocalyptic amusement park add-on arrives in August, Bethesda has one other piece of DLC up its sleeve, the Vault-Tec Workshop.The Vault-Tec Workshop is scheduled to release on July 26 (two Tuesdays from now) for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Essentially a spin the popular mobile title Fallout Shelter (coming to PC tomorrow, by the way), the Vault-Tec Workshop allows you to build a massive vault of... Read more...
Bethesda's been teasing a major update to Fallout Shelter for the past month, Update 1.6, which will bring the popular mobile title to the PC platform. In the days leading up the update's July 14 (this Thursday) launch, Bethesda has taken to Twitter with catchy rhymes to hype the release of what it says it will be the biggest update ever to the game."Five days until you're besting the questing with Fallout Shetler's biggest update," the official Fallout account (@Fallout) posted to Twitter on Saturday. This was followed up by another tweet yesterday that reads, "Four days until you can exchange... Read more...
The recent Doom reboot published by Bethesda and developed by id Software has been getting rave reviews from fans of the franchise, both old and new, and it's about to get even better. That's because the first major update for Doom is on its way—it's due out on June 30th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, Bethesda announced. It will roll out automatically to Xbox One and PC via Steam. If you're rocking Doom on a PS4 console, you can either manually grab the update once it becomes available or configure your system to grab automatic updates (head to your console's settings). The update will introduce... Read more...
Quake is back and ready to rumble. id Software’s new multiplayer shooter was featured at Bethesda's E3 2016 showcase. Tim Willits, Studio Director of id Software stated, “20 years ago, Quake set new standards for multiplayer competition and pushed the boundaries for graphics and gameplay.

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...
