You could say that Bethesda’s online account plan was doomed from the beginning. The publisher was originally going to force gamers to create online accounts before accessing the newly re-released Doom titles. Bethesda has decided to ditch their account requirement after major backlash from Doom players. Bethesda recently announced that they would be re-releasing versions of Doom, Doom II, and Doom 3 in honor of the franchise's 25th anniversary. Users would need to create BethesdaNet and login into their accounts before accessing the games. This requirement garnered criticism from gamers who believed that it was an unnecessary hurdle. The original Doom game did not demand Internet access... Read more...

No reasonable person would expect the demon uprising to be all rainbows and glitter, but what you may not have anticipated is a level of gore that rivals—and perhaps surpasses—the notoriously violent Mortal Kombat franchise. Bethesda's upcoming Doom Eternal game does, however, as revealed in a new story trailer. "It’s time for you to once again fill the skull-crushing boots of the Doom Slayer and save humanity from utter destruction. Of course, there’s only one way to stop the chaos: rip and tear through every demon in your path, until it is done," Bethesda explains. As the Doom Slayer, you will face a relentless demon onslaught, and while the stakes are bigger than ever,... Read more...

After eight years of waiting, Rage is finally getting a sequel. Developed by Avalanche Studios in partnership with id Software, and published by Bethesda Softworks, Rage 2 will bring insanity-fueled apocalyptic gameplay to the forefront, and you will need a relatively meaty PC to play the game as recommended, though nothing too crazy. Bethesda announced the minimum and recommended specs for playing Rage 2 on PC. The good news is, you don't need a crazy-powerful build to get your foot in the door. Here's a look at the requirements. Minimum Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system OS: Win7, 8.1, or 10 (64-Bit versions) Processor: Intel Core i5-3570 or AMD Ryzen 3 1300X Memory: 8GB RAM Graphics:... Read more...
Fallout 76 has had a rough time since it launched, with much of the blame be squarely placed on developer Bethesda. The game was unpopular enough that it was given away with $5 thumbstick purchases for the PS4. Bethesda has been working to improve the game based on feedback, but so far not many major improvements have landed. Bethesda has Fallout 76 player characters setup so that your gear wears out over time and you must spend time at a workbench getting it back in shape. Past Fallout titles had similar mechanics for repairing equipment as well. For gamers who are annoyed at "wasting" time fixing their gear, Bethesda has unveiled its latest way to reach into your wallet... Read more...
One of Bethesda's most popular games franchises is The Elder Scrolls. What fans really want to know about in the franchise is that the sixth game that is in the works right now, but no details on that game have surfaced. Many fear that Bethesda will drop the ball with The Elder Scrolls as it did with Fallout 76, delivering only more disappointment. Fallout 76 has been so bad for gamers that Bethesda apologized for issues with the title and continues to work hard on the game. Fortunately, while fans are waiting for the next major release of The Elder Scrolls game to launch, Bethesda is readying a mobile game called The Elder Scrolls: Blades to tide us over. The catch is that the game is in early... Read more...

Bethesda is celebrating the 25-year anniversary of its popular The Elder Scrolls franchise in the best possible way—by giving away a free game! From now until Sunday, March 31, you can log into your Bethesda.net account and claim your copy of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind at no cost, using code TES25TH-MORROWIND. Once you've claimed it, the game is yours to play, even after the promotion ends. Granted, this is not as exciting as giving away The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, or even The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. But hey, let's not look a gift horse in the mouth—a free game is a free game, even one that is now 17 years old. Besides, Morrowind is an important release in the franchise.... Read more...

Fallout 76 is one of the most maligned video games in recent memory. Not only did the game launch with serious bugs that made it nearly unplayable for some gamers, but Bethesda has also wielded the ban hammer willy nilly on people for using simple mods to improve graphics. With all the poor reviews of the game, it was discounted early on, and we have seen the bundles with the game going for impressively low prices recently. Polish retailer X-Kom was running what may be the most embarrassing giveaway of Fallout 76 that Bethesda will endure. The website was giving away free copies of Fallout 76 with the purchase of overstocked PS4 thumbsticks that sold for about $5. The website ran through all... Read more...
Bethesda wants gamers to like Fallout 76; while all the other titles in the franchise have been well received, Bethesda hasn't similar critical success with Fallout 76. One of the ways that Bethesda has tried to get gamers to play the game is by touting updates that will come in the future. A new PvP mode will land "in a future update" according to Bethesda. Once the update has landed, players will get to choose between Adventure mode, which is the original way of playing the game, and Survival mode. Bethesda says that this Survival mode is based on feedback from the more competitive players of the game wanting a more significant challenge, fewer restrictions, and more incentives for PvP...
