Bethesda answer questions on Fallout 76’s perks, anti-griefing systems

As QuakeCon 2018 continues, so too does Bethesda Game Studio's steady drip-feed of information about their games, and specifically about post-apocalyptic multiplayer survival RPG Fallout 76. Its E3 showing left a lot of questions unanswered, and last night Gary Steinman, Todd Howard, Jeff Gardiner, and Chris Meyer shed some light on those lingering unknowns, including player progression and anti-griefing measures.

Skyrim console commands and cheats: the most useful on PC

It's probably safe to assume that most people interested will by now have exhausted The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's many quest lines, become the Dovahkiin, and slain Alduin. If you have, you might now want to delve into the inner workings of Skyrim to use the various console commands on offer to really break things. We're not going to list every single console command in…

Fallout 76’s beta begins October, but not everyone gets in on day 1

Bethesda revealed a few more details of their upcoming Fallout 76 beta event today, for those wanting to get in on the ground floor of the multiplayer spinoff. Beginning this October (with Xbox One leading the way, and PC/PS4 starting soon after), players who pre-ordered the game from "participating retailers" will gradually be invited, although not everyone at first. The initial wave of players will…

Bethesda’s Todd Howard isn’t keen to remaster Morrowind

I'm getting pretty burned-out on remastered vintage videogames, partly because they're ten-a-penny now and partly because PC graphics settings and mods mean it's often straightforward to make a golden oldie look better than ever. There's one notable exception to that for me, which is Elder Scrolls series peak Morrowind. Its spindly world of shroom'n'insects'n'ash'n'gonzo weirdness is seared onto my memory forever, but in 2018 it…

Northern Springs brings frosty adventure to Fallout 4

Fallout 4 just got a massive new sector for explorin' and craftin' and murderin'. As is the new normal for the industry, this stunning new bit of world and its storyline are all thanks to fan labour. A mod called Northern Springs, which is billed as being larger than any of the game's official expansions, is available now on Nexus Mods. I'd been so obsessed…

Video: The most exciting PC games still to come in 2018

Has it really been six months? 2018 is passing in a blur of frozen architects, drug-pushing prophets and accordion duets. Hell, six months ago the RPS Video Department was but a glint in Graham’s eye. You may also recall a gathering of the most exciting games of 2018, a rundown of the year as it looked back in January. With E3 done there’s a clearer…

You can’t target individual players with Fallout 76’s nukes

Good news, prospective vault dwellers! While Fallout 76 will let you play with nukes, the chances of being trolled by AtomicSlayer420 are extremely slim. While nukes are the game’s most devastating weapons, they’re not designed to target players specifically, says Bethesda, and are instead a way to alter the environment. Of course, altering the environment might also include wiping an enemy base off the map.

Fallout 76 sleuths have made a map of post-apocalyptic West Virginia

Over on Reddit, prospective vault dwellers have been diligently constructing a map for Fallout 76. It pays to be prepared for the apocalypse. Despite the fact that the Fallout spin-off was only announced just before E3, the user-created map is already in its sixth iteration. It’s all speculation at the moment, but thanks to West Virginians chiming in, it might also end up being pretty…

Fallout 76 will support mods, but not at launch

Mod support will indeed be coming to multiplayer survival sandbox Fallout 76, Bethesda have said, though not in time for its November launch. Mods are a standard feature for Bethesda's RPGs, of course, filling in all the holes Bethesda leave and adding so many wonderful new things, but the always-online nature of 76 left that in question. Not to mention that some spectators have been…

The Elder Scrolls: Blades is for phones, but it’ll come to PC one day

Before announcing The Elder Scrolls VI last night, Bethesda's Todd Howard started the The Elder Scrolls: Blades section of their E3 stream by talking about how many people Fallout Shelter had touched. He mentioned some figure in the millions about how many downloads it got, eliciting inevitable whoops from the crowd. It's probably passé to mock the things people whoop about at E3 at this…

The Elder Scrolls VI announced

You will, I am sure, be astonished to hear that Bethesda Game Studios are making another Elder Scrolls game. Today, during their E3 pressblast, they announced that The Elder Scrolls VI is now in pre-production. And... that's about it. The game is a long, long way away, coming after Bethesda's all-new Starfield - which is itself so far out that we don't even know what…

Bethesda announce all-new “space epic” Starfield

Bethesda Game Studios, the folks behind The Elder Scrolls and the new Fallouts, today announced a mysterious new game named Starfield - "our first wholly original franchise in 25 years", according to studio director Todd Howard. He called it a "next-generation singleplayer game" but, beyond that, didn't reveal anything concrete. This is a game that's a fair way out, something we won't even see for…

Fallout 76 is a multiplayer “softcore survival” game

Well then! The rumours were true: Fallout 76 is indeed a multiplayer game, one described by Bethesda's Todd Howard as "softcore survival". Huh. Weird. The online sandbox will send Vault dwellers out to rebuild America, 25 years after the nuclear apocalypse, and all these dwellers will be other players. Howard said that folks will be able to play solo, questing on their tod, but the…

Fallout 76 is a prequel, “four times the size” of FO4

Bethesda have confirmed that Fallout 76 will be a prequel to the post-apocalyptic RPG series, showing off the hills of West Virginia in a new trailer during Microsoft's E3 briefing. Game director Todd Howard was on stage to say that it follows some of the first people to emerge from a Vault after the nuclear war, reestablishing society in a chunk of virtual space that's…

Bethesda’s Fallout 76 takes you home to the place you belong

Well, there we go: Fallout 76 is the answer you were looking for. Not Fallout 5, not Fallout 3 remastered, but 'Fallout 76', which on the face of things implies a sort Fallout 4.5, much like New Vegas was to FO3. It might not be that simple, however - more on which below. '76' refers, it seems, both to the number of the Vault you'll…

Bethesda teasing Fallout announcement as E3 nears

"War," Ron Perlman will almost certainly growl during Bethesda's E3 press conference. "War never changes," he'll likely continue. Then he'll go on about some past wars, which were bad, and tell us about fictional future wars which are also bad. Bethesda are teasing some sort of Fallout announcement, see. New or old, original or remaster... we don't know. But at some point soon we'll get…

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR has jacked into PC

It's time to hang a pine-scented Little Tree air freshener from your cybergoggs because The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR last night launched on PC, following its console debut in November 2017. It's Skyrim but in VR, yeah? Put your feet in a foot spa while you sit by a river in the rain, hang an old sock over your nose when venturing into Blackreach,…

Fus Vee Ah! Skyrim VR jacking into PC next month

Given that the iconic image of Skyrim is a fella wearing a Knightmare-esque bucket on his head, it's only fitting that Bethesda want you to strap cybergoggles onto your head to enter the fantasy RPG's world. Today they announced a PC release for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, a new standalone version built for cybergoggles. Skyrim VR debuted on PlayStation VR in November 2017,…

Fallout 4 blasts another free trial weekend

Going anywhere nice this weekend? Have you considered the irradiated ruins of post-apocalyptic Boston? You might fancy a crack at Fallout 4, as this weekend Bethesda will hold yet another days-long free trial of the full game. The speedrun record is under one hour so you certainly could 'complete it' in one weekend, but myself I like the sound of wandering aimlessly. While I find…
