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...
It appears that Bethesda has some new Fallout-themed gaming in store for us at this year's E3. The company posted a tweet this morning with a "Please Stand By" image, which we all by now know means that the release will be Fallout tinged. Given that the only text in the tweet is #PleaseStandBy, we can only speculate at this point as to what this teaser means. The most obvious answer could be that Bethesda is planning to port Fallout 4 to the Nintendo Switch. Fallout 4 was released two and a half years ago for the PC, Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. #PleaseStandBy pic.twitter.com/5IUjkURCcM—... Read more...
The cat is officially out of the bag—Rage 2 is in development, and rather than try to hide it any longer, Bethesda is embracing the hype by releasing the first gameplay trailer. To say that the action looks wild is, well, a wild understatement. The trailer depicts a whole lot of mayhem, which is exactly what you would expect if the world were to ever go belly up, leaving in its wake apocalyptic ruins and crazed factions unbound by laws of the land. "In Rage 2, you’ll dive headfirst into a dystopian world devoid of society, law, and order. You can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode... Read more...
One of the things most Doom fans liked when the original version launched way back in the day is that it would scare the crap out of you if you weren't careful (yes, those heavily pixelated demons were quite frightening). Doom was sneaky like that. The new rebooted Doom game on the Nintendo Switch (and other platforms) is good for a few frights as you play, but the sneakiest thing in the game has landed with the latest patch. Doom version 1.1.1 for the Nintendo Switch downloaded recently for some gamers and with that patch comes new motion controls for the game. Bethesda didn’t say anything... Read more...
Lynda Carter, the actress who is most memorable for playing Wonder Woman in the original TV series that aired in the 1970s, gets it. And by "it," I mean gaming. Specifically, single-player gaming, and the need for more of it. Having championed good over evil through several seasons on TV (among many other roles in her long and impressive career), Carter is now pushing for single-player gaming experiences, at the behest of Bethesda. This is not a totally serious cause, mind you, but in a tongue-in-cheek attempt by Bethesda to pitch its single-player games this holiday season. The former woman of... Read more...
Is there anything more satisfying than blasting Nazis? It is at least in the running for the top spot of fun things to do, and Bethesda will ensure you can keep doing exactly that in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, with several bits of DLC that are on the way this holiday season. Dubbed "Freedom Chronicles," the first bit called Episode Zero is available now, with others to follow starting December 14. "Episode Zero introduces you to Joseph Stallion, Jessica Valiant and Gerald Wilkins as they fight for freedom in the American Territories. Blast your way through Nazis using unique abilities and...

Are you ready to "Make America Nazi-Free Again"? Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus launches on Friday for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows, and the game has already drawn a lot of controversy for the aforementioned slogan and its rather brutal and risqué trailers. However, all that fans of the Wolfenstein franchise want to know is what kind of hardware will they need to starting curb-stomping some Nazi bad guys? Well, Bethesda and MachineGames have released the system requirements for Wolfenstein II, and it appears that you won't need to have a burly system to be able to enjoy the game at high...

For so many reasons, Wolfenstein II looks to be a fantastic new addition to the classic game series, and as such, publisher Bethesda has pushed its advertising and promotional effort hard. As the company is quickly finding out, however, even if you think an advertising campaign provides a bulletproof message, you're may still to have to deal with backlash, especially if it also pushes the envelope a bit. In this particular case, Bethesda published a trailer that held back no punches, stating: "Make America Nazi-Free Again." Blunt? Incredibly. Unfortunately, white supremacist and Nazi-related subjects... Read more...
If you haven't experienced any of the post-nuclear worlds from the popular Fallout series, now is your chance to jump on board, starting at the beginning. Bethesda, which owns the rights to the original Fallout game developed by Interplay, is celebrating the title's 20th anniversary by giving it away for free on Steam, for a limited time. Players have until 11:59 PM (Pacific) on September 30 to claim the title on Steam and add it to their library. It does not have to be installed right away, or even by the deadline, but it does have to be added. After that, it will remain in the player's game catalog... Read more...
DOOM was rebooted last year for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game was praised for its frantic gameplay and stellar graphics, which were backed by potent console hardware and the [then] nascent GeForce GTX 10 Series graphics cards. But how would DOOM look on a gaming system that is considered by many to woefully underpowered by modern hardware standards? We're getting a glimpse today as DOOM for the Nintendo Switch has been demoed to the gaming press, and by all accounts, this port looks damn good. The Nintendo Switch is powered by an NVIDIA Tegra X1 ARM-based SoC, which has a 256-core... Read more...
We got our first taste of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus earlier this year at E3 when a trailer was released for the highly anticipated game. As the follow-up to 2014's Wolfenstein: The New Order, Wolfenstein II: New Colossus sees the American spirit paralyzed, as the Nazi's scored a decisive victory during World War II and have extended their dominion to the United States. If the first trailer wasn't enough to get you pumped, then this new gameplay trailer will definitely get you in the mood for some Nazi curb stomping. However, let’s first set the stage, courtesy of developer Bethesda: They've... Read more...
