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...
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...
Earlier this month, a little-known Israeli security company named CTS Labs disclosed a number of vulnerabilities that affect AMD's Zen-based processor family. The exploits -- Masterkey, Ryzenfall, Fallout, and Chimera -- involve the Secure Processor found onboard Ryzen and EPYC products and the supporting Ryzen chipset. At the time, AMD provided the following statement: We are actively investigating and analyzing its findings. This company was previously unknown to AMD and we find it unusual for a security firm to publish its research to the press without providing a reasonable amount of time for... Read more...
Given the industry-wide panic that was unleashed following the disclosure of the Meltdown and Spectre processor vulnerabilities (with Intel taking the brunt of the heat), many are on edge about the potential for similar exploits to be discovered in other products. Unfortunately, for those that are running AMD's current Zen-based processor architecture, researchers claim to have discovered over a dozen new critical security flaws that affect the Ryzen and EPYC processor families. According to CTS-Labs, a fledgling Israeli security firm that first reported on the chip flaws, vulnerabilities... 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...
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...
If you're both a Minecraft and Fallout fan, then we're pretty sure that you've just received the coolest holiday gift ever. Bethesda has teamed up with Mojang to deliver a $5.99 DLC pack for all console versions, which is in effect a total conversion: Minecraft with a fresh coat of post-nuclear paint. Here's how the developer sells it: Working in the depths of their bunker complex, our artists and builders have been busy blasting Minecraft’s glorious overworld into an irradiated wasteland fit for Fallout fans to wander. Friendly cows, gently sauteed in the light of a thousand suns, have now... 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...
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...
There are myriad reasons why a game like Fallout 4 is so good, from its sheer depth to its flexibility. That latter point ties into modding, which Bethesda is happy to not just let fans dive into, but is proud to support. As one reddit user has discovered, though, there is one major caveat to be aware of if you want to use FO4 mods: no achievements. In his post, reddit user HakfDuckHalfMan notes that games in FO4 that have enabled mods are treated as completely separate from ordinary ones. An example given: If your username is John, the next time you save a game with a mod enabled, a "John [Modded]"... Read more...
Nearly a month ago, Bethesda brought us news of three DLC packs in store for its hugely popular Fallout 4. The first of those three packs, Automatron, is now set to launch on March 22nd and will be filled with plenty of mechanized, murderous robot mayhem. Bethesda describe Automatron, which retails for $9.99, writing: The mysterious Mechanist has unleashed a horde of evil robots into the Commonwealth, including the devious Robobrain. Hunt them down and harvest their parts to build and mod your own custom robot companions. Choose from hundreds of mods; mixing limbs, armor, abilities, and weapons... Read more...
It could be said that Bethesda is like the "Apple" of the gaming world - anything it releases is almost guaranteed to sell well. That proved true with the company's latest masterpiece, Fallout 4, which managed to sell an impressive 12 million copies (for $750 million in revenue) in its first few days. With Fallout's continued success, there's little doubt that we'll see a Fallout 5. Similarly, Bethesda tells us that Fallout Shelter will not be the last mobile game it puts out, either. At this week's DICE Summit, Bethesda's Director Todd Howard said, "We're gonna do more," and admitted that the... Read more...
In a series of tweets, Fallout 4 developer Bethesda has teased some of the game's upcoming content, while giving fans little to go on (as usual). When asked about an update regarding the release of Creation Kit, Pete Hines, Bethesda PR, said, "We're pretty close to divulging details." We're not given a timeframe, but are told that it "Won't be much longer." The response to the DLC question is much the same: "We're not far off." We’re also doing a complete overhaul of Fallout 4 Survival mode. Food, sleep, diseases, danger and more. Stay tuned. — BethesdaGameStudios (@BethesdaStudios) February 11,... Read more...
There have been so many quality games to come out this year that it's hard to tell if Bethesda's latest epic, Fallout 4, will come out on top, but it sure has a good chance to. And that's despite the fact that as with any Bethesda title at launch, Fallout 4 can prove ridiculously buggy at times. As you'd expect, Bethesda is hard at work on getting these bugs squashed, but it definitely takes time. While some bugs are minor things we'd expect with any new game launch, some in Fallout 4 are downright maddening. A good example of one has been discussed at reddit as well as the game's official forums.... Read more...
