Boston is going to be filled with drunk Celtics fans this weekend if the spunky team in green manages to upset the Cleveland Cavaliers to extend the Eastern Conference Finals. Or it will be a post-nuclear wasteland, though not as a result of a loss. It just all depends on your plans—to see the latter, you can fire up Fallout 4 for free this weekend on your Xbox One or PC through Steam. This will be the first time that Fallout 4 has been free to play for an entire weekend, and an extended one at that. Bethesda has already unlocked the game on Xbox One and will do the same on Steam later this afternoon.... Read more...
Are you ready to be swept up into the lies, deceit, and treachery of Morrowind Great House politics? The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind trailer was just released and offers a glimpse of the “cutthroat clan-feuds of Vvardenfell” and the Morag Tong assassins. The Elder Scrolls Online’s latest chapters returns to the island of Vvardenfell, seven hundred years before the events of The Elder Scrolls Three: Morrowind. Gamers will be able to prevent a meteor from crashing onto Vivec City by helping a demigod to regain his power. They will also be able to partner with a Morag Tong assassin who will guide...

It is finally time to fight the invasion. Again. Fans of the original Prey released in 2006 were teased with a sequel for several years, but as the IP rights changed hands and development shifted from one studio to another, the long-awaited followup seemed increasingly unlikely. It was eventually cancelled in 2014. Game over, right? Not so fast. Bethesda tasked Arkane Studios (which it acquired in 2010) with developing a reboot, and today is the day it releases. Now available on Steam, Arkane Studio's reimagining of Prey is a first person shooter with some role playing elements. The player assumes... Read more...
The closed beta for Quake Champions is just around the corner. Bethesda and id Software have revealed that the closed beta will start on April 6th, and have also unveiled a new character as one of the game’s “champions”. The closed beta will begin next week with an “initial group of testers”, but there is currently no indication of how large that group of gamers will be. The developers have implied that more testers will be added to the closed beta over time. The developers have also just revealed the character Anarki. Anarki was an Arena Lord and playable character in Quake III Arena. The trailer... Read more...
The folks at id Software have been fairly quiet as of late about Quake Champions, its forthcoming arena-style shooter that was unveiled during Bethesda's press conference at last year's E3. However, they're making noise now—there is a new trailer available that teases fast action game play, but even more exciting is that gamers can now sign up for the much anticipated closed beta. Bethesda says the closed beta will begin sometime in the coming weeks. For anyone who plans on attending PAX East this weekend at the Boston Convention Center, Quake Champions will be playable at the Bethesda booth, giving... Read more...
What's that sound? Oh, it's just the collective sound of Fallout fans who'd rather not game on mobile platforms letting out a collective "Finally!". That's right: Bethesda's super-hot mobile game based on the Fallout universe, called Fallout Shelter, is coming to Xbox One, as well as Windows 10 PCs. Sorry, PlayStation fans. This is one of those times where you can hear about an announcement and not have to wait forever and a day for it to come to fruition. Microsoft says that Fallout Shelter will hit both of its platforms on February 8, and like the mobile game, it's going to be free to download,... Read more...
Bethesda is preparing to deliver a high-resolution texture pack to PC for Fallout 4 next week, one that will require a somewhat burly PC to run. At the same time, Bethesda will push out its Fallout 4 Update 1.9 to PlayStation 4 Pro owners to make better use of the upgraded console's power. It will do that by introducing enhanced lighting and graphics features, including a native 1440p resolution. PlayStation 4 Pro owners will also see improvements in Fallout 4 by way of enhanced draw distances for trees, grass, objects, and NPCs, and enhanced Godray effects. It's basically a fresh coat of paint... Read more...
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...
You wanted it and Bethesda is delivering it—a new and much anticipated Arcade Mode that brings all out mayhem to the 2016 Doom reboot by way of a free update, the fourth major one to date. This particular one turns the traditional campaign mode on its head and unleashes hell by letting you run amuck with all guns, Runes, and equipment upgrades fully unlocked from the get-go. "Customize your Doom Marine's gear, guns and Praetor suit before each run to see what combinations will give you an edge. Compete against friends and players worldwide for the highest score by attacking demons quickly, avoiding... 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...
