Bethesda has its arm pulled back and is about to throat punch Sony over cross-play. Sony is the lone roadblock standing in the way of gamers everywhere playing together no matter what system they are running. In a more recent announcement, Bethesda's Fallout 76 won't have cross-play thanks to Sony. Bethesda's other upcoming game is The Elder Scrolls: Legends and word is that the company has decided to not launch the game on systems that won’t support cross-play. Bethesda's Senior VP of global marketing and communications said at Quakecon that The Elder Scrolls: Legends is a strategy... Read more...
It's safe to say that one of the most anticipated games that we learned of at E3 this year is Bethesda's Fallout 76. We already knew key details about the game going into this year's Quakecon, like that the game is online only and will put players into a wasteland set in West Virginia. We know some about the various version of the game Bethesda will offer and that it will launch on November 14. There will be no multiplayer cross-play thanks to Sony, and the game won't be offered on Steam for PC gamers, instead, Bethesda is selling directly to the PC crowd. Despite knowing all of those details,... Read more...
Bethesda has been catching some heat following a report that it threatened legal action against an individual who was attempting to sell a sealed copy of The Evil Within 2 on Amazon. In response to the backlash, Bethesda's senior vice president of marketing and communications, Peter Hines, offered up some clarification on the matter, including Bethesda's stance on used game sales. Hines insists that Bethesda has no issue with individuals selling used games. What the publisher does take umbrage with, however, is when an individual buys a game from an authorized retailer and then turns around and... Read more...
It appears that Bethesda Softworks is trying to sue the practice of used of game sales right out of existence by leaning on a legal loophole. We do not know if that is actually the case, but those are the optics, anyway, after the publisher threatened legal action against an Amazon Marketplace seller for trying to sell a still sealed, albeit second-hand copy of The Evil Within 2. That seller is Ryan Hupp, a gamer who lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. As Hupp explained to Polygon, Hupp purchased The Evil Within 2 for the PlayStation 4 in anticipation of buying the console, but later decided he... Read more...
QuakeCon is underway today and gamers are waiting in anticipating for the keynote with Bethesda and id Software where they were expected to deliver the first news on Doom Eternal. The presentation kicked off at noon central time and if you missed the livestream you can watch the VOD recording here.  What we know about the keynote is that Marty Stratton and Hugo Martin from id Software were there to show off gameplay footage from Doom Eternal. That game is the sequel to the 2016 revamp of Doom. Doom most recently landed on the Nintendo Switch early this year, complete with actually useful motion... Read more...
One of the most anticipated games of the year is Fallout 76. The game is the latest in Bethesda's post-apocalyptic open-world franchise and it will be set in a Western Virginian wasteland. We already know some important facts about the game including that it will be an online-only title and have multiplayer capability. The catch is that cross-platform play has been blocked by buzzkill Sony. Multiple versions of the game will launch November 14, and we have now learned that the PC version will shun the popular Steam store. Bethesda has officially announced that Fallout 76 for PC will only be offered... Read more...
Fallout 4 is one of the coolest games that Bethesda has ever rolled out, and one of the important things about the game is the DLC that the company has made available to keep players interested. The Nuka-World DLC added a huge new playable area to the game and another nice thing about Fallout 4 was that the game supports mods made by fans. A new fan-made DLC has been announced and it is of the size that we normally only see from Bethesda. The mod is called Northern Springs and claims to be larger than both official DLCs, Far Harbor and Nuka World. Northern Springs was developed by a team... Read more...
Sony sure does know how to ruin a good party. As if infuriating scores of Fortnite fans by blocking cross-play and cross-progression with the PlayStation 4 and other competing consoles (i.e. Xbox One and Nintendo Switch) wasn't enough, we're now learning that Sony is also the reason why cross-play won't be enabled on Bethesda's upcoming Fallout 76. Fallout 76 was announced earlier this month at E3, and gamers are eagerly awaiting its November 14th release. It will be the first game in the long-running franchise that is focused on online play, but it won't support cross-play... Read more...
One of the coolest games that was announced at E3 2018 was the forthcoming Bethesda title Fallout 76. When the game was first teased we didn’t have much to go on, but we were excited. We later learned that it would be an online only game set in West Virginia. One of the big missing bits of information on the game, however, was exactly when it would launch. That has now been confirmed with a launch date of November 14, 2018; just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US, when you can catch that Tryptophan buzz and chill with the fam and a little gaming goodness. We know that... Read more...
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? It appears that Bethesda and Behaviour Interactive have had a falling-out. Bethesda is suing Westworld mobile game publisher Warner Bros. and developer Behaviour Interactive for mimicking Fallout Shelter. Fallout Shelter is a free-to-play mobile game that was developed by Bethesda Game Studios and Behaviour Interactive. Players must build and manage their own fallout shelter or “Vault”. Fallout Shelter was initially released for iOS in June 2015 and is now also available on Android devices, Windows, Xbox One, Playstation 4, and... Read more...
Quake fans rejoice, Bethesda has made an offer that many will find too good to refuse. Quake Champions, the upcoming arena shooter that has not yet been fully released, is now available as a free trial to anyone and everyone. Previously it was a $30 title as part of Steam's Early Access program. It will return to that price after the free trial period as well, but if you grab it now for free, it will remain in your library after this current trial period ends. Even if you're on the fence about Quake Champions, you might as well claim your copy now, just in case. Quake Champions will return to its... Read more...
One of the many things Bethesda showed off at E3 is a new Skyrim experience, though unlike previous versions that are playable on PCs and consoles, the new Skyrim Very Special Edition takes aim at Alexa. Bethesda showed off a trailer featuring comedian Keegan-Michael Key barking out Skyrim commands at his Echo smart speaker, and everyone in attendance got a good laugh. It gets even funnier though, because Skyrim Very Special Edition is not a gag, it's a real skill that Alexa users can download right at this very instant. Let's pull things back a second. It is a gag, in that Bethesda is poking fun... Read more...
Bethesda unveiled a new Fallout game at E3 called Fallout 76, and unlike every previous iteration in the popular franchise, it's strictly an online game centered around a multiplayer experience. That's not to say that players who prefer a solo experience will not be able to hop in and complete quests on their own—that will still be possible, though as Bethesda mentioned at E3, "The easiest way to survive in the wasteland is to team up and build together." Fallout 76 takes gamers to near the beginning of the post-apocalyptic world. The year is 2102, otherwise known as Reclamation Day, and... Read more...
Yesterday morning, Bethesda offered a cryptic teaser for an upcoming Fallout game, simply telling gamers to #PleaseStandBy. Today, the developer has announced the next installment in the long-running franchise: Fallout 76. Bethesda announced the game via a teaser trailer that starts off with the familiar “Please Stand By” message and then proceeds to show of some staid cutscene footage along with a reference to 300 years since the Declaration of Independence (1776 - 2076). There's the specific date of October 27th 2102 featured prominently on a Pip-Boy along with... Read more...
