Bethesda has revealed Doom at its press conference and in all its bloody glory. The gameplay presented in the demo points to Doom taking pointers from last year’s Wolfenstein the New Order.

Great news for fans of the Fallout franchise – yesterday, the following image was posted at Bethesda’s Fallout webpage, with a timer counting down to 10:00am EST on Wednesday the 3rd. Fallout 4 has been one of the industry’s worst-kept secrets, and there’s little question that the timer will end with a reveal of the upcoming title.
A little earlier today the website went live for a very brief span of time, and the following image was displayed, in addition to a video link, almost certainly the first teaser trailer for Fallout 4. The page also confirmed that the upcoming Fallout title will be on the PC, PS4, and XboxONE platforms.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was one of the most acclaimed releases of 2011, drawing critical praise for itsart style, leveling system and changes to the series’ traditional combat. Now, Elder Scrolls modding community Dark Creations is getting ready to release the first part of a massive addition to the game: Beyond Skyrim – Bruma.
Dark Creations describes Beyond Skyrim as:
…a community-wide effort to craft the remaining provinces of Tamriel [the world where the series is set] in a single worldspace, allowing players to cross borders wherever it’s geographically possible. The project is also intended to facilitate cooperation between province expansion mods by sharing knowledge & resources.
Bethesda did not disappoint at this year’s E3, boasting three upcoming titles that all bring something different to both present-gen and next-gen consoles.
In a move that we can confidently say no one saw coming, The Elder Scrolls Online, a MMO-RPG set in Bethesda Softworks venerable fan-favorite Elder Scrolls universe, has been confirmed for PlayStation 4 and Xbox ONE.
It has also been confirmed that while PC and Mac users will be on the same server set, the PS4 and Xbox ONE servers will be separated from the PC/Mac servers as well as each other. Given the degree to which the console debate has escalated, this is probably good news on several levels. Additionally, Bethesda has announced that the PlayStation 4 will boast the first beta access for The Elder Scrolls Online.
As The Elder Scrolls Online is Bethesda’s main point of focus at this year’s E3, Bethesda has released a slew of new media for TES: Online. The following features the voice-over talents of Michael Gambon (Harry Potter, Gosford Park, The King’s Speech), as well as some juicy snippets of game-play. The first-person viewpoint is something of a rarity in MMOs, but the Action-RPG system present in The Elder Scrolls Online seems to favor it. Franchise alumni will also recognize many of the iconic Tamrielic foes such as the draegloth and hagraven, as well as brief shots of locales like Morrowind and Elsweyr.
The Elder Scrolls Online will launch Spring of 2014 on PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, and Xbox ONE.
With the first Skryim DLC Dawnguard just released a few weeks ago on PC (what happened to the PS3 players, Bethesda?), it was surprising to hear a few rumors this week about Bethesda announcing their next DLC. But nevertheless, Bethesda sent out a press release this morning announcing the newest Skyrim DLC, Hearthfire.
While at E3 2012, the Pg! Crew got a behind the scenes look at some upcoming Bethesda titles. There was one game in particular that seem to be a surprise hit: Dishonored. Featuring a mix of Bioshock-esque gameplay and a Steampunk aesthetic, it looks right up our alley.
Check out our interview with Arkane Studos for some insights into the upcoming title.
