Fallout 76 coming to Steam in April alongside new NPC update

Update: Hi there, it's me, the idiot who somehow thought we were in April. This month is, in fact, February. How is it only February. All this will happen on April 7th, not February 7th. Is it really still only February? After fifteen months exclusive to Bethesda's own store on PC, Fallout 76 has now finalised a Steam launch date of April 7th - also…

Bethesda repatriate Fallout 76 theft victims through in-game clone meetups

Last month, hackers stole Fallout 76 items from player inventories while they were inside the game, literally pinching the shirts from their backs. Bethesda's solution has been to create clones of affected players with their pre-theft inventories intact. If victims want to keep the gear they've gained since the hack and not switch to a month-old backup, Bethesda are offering an unusual experience: they'll log…

The Elder Scrolls Online is heading to Skyrim to deal with pesky vampires

In the land of Skyrim, it turns out, you're never more than a hundred feet from a vampire. The Elder Scrolls Online has planned a series of updates dubbed "The Dark Heart Of Skyrim", where you'll spend the rest of the year rooting out the bastards from the land of the Nords. That starts with the Harrowstorm dungeon DLC at some point in February, to…

The Elder Scrolls: Legends development on hold

Bethesda have indefinitely halted development on The Elder Scrolls: Legends, the free-to-play card game set in their RPG world of swords and shouts. The game is still up, you can still play it, and Bethesda will still run events in it, but no new content substantial updates are being worked on or planned.

Human Head close, immediately reform under Bethesda as Roundhouse Studios

It should've been a big week for Human Head Studios. Rune 2 finally completed its rocky voyage onto store shelves, nineteen years after its predecessor. Unfortunately, Human Head's latest would turn out to be their last. Today, the developers announced they'd be "closing the book" on the studio as we know it. Fortunately, it's not quite the end of Human Head entirely. The developers will…

Explore The Elder Scrolls Online for free ’til next Wednesday

As Fallout 76 keeps toeing the line on whether it's a "proper" MMORPG, it's easy to forget that Bethesda have already kept a big online world kicking about for years. The Elder Scrolls Online is still quite happily letting dungeoneers plunder Tamriel for new loot, opening the doors to the Elsweyr cat kingdom just this year. Until next Wednesday, TESO has waived its entry fee,…

Fallout 76 paid subscribers have formed a peasant-trashing aristocracy

Reports of class warfare in Fallout 76 were probably overblown, but far from fabricated. The recent introduction of Fallout 1st, a paid subscription service offering cosmetics, conveniences and (not-so) private servers, has created something of a rift. At first that just meant the odd subscriber got attacked by people in bear costumes. Now the subscribers are fighting back, with 300 of them joining a clan…

Fallout 76 Australian players will get refunds they were denied

ZeniMax, the parent company of Bethesda, will offer refunds on Fallout 76 to many Australian customers who were previously denied them. They'd previously said the people weren't entitled to refunds under ZeniMax rules, but Australian authorities piped up to point out that Australian laws meant yes, they were. This isn't a slam on Fallout 76, just another games company doing international business without understanding local…

Feature: Country roads will now be gravel, unless you have the tarmac upgrade for £1.99/month

Fallout 76 players have a decidedly mixed response to the Fallout 1st subscription

At the heart of Fallout 76, there’s always been friction between what people wanted it to be, and what it actually is. To begin with, this manifested as an apprehension over whether an online Fallout game was the right move for the series. Over time, it grew into other concerns about the game’s business model and Bethesda’s perceived mismanagement of the Atomic Shop. Now, Bethesda…

Bethesda acknowledge parts of Fallout 76’s subscription service are broken

Earlier this week Fallout 76 introduced a subscription service charging £12 a month or £100 a year for various things Bethesda shouldn't have, along with the more reasonable inclusion of private servers. It isn't reasonable to charge for the convenience of a box with infinite storage and a deployable fast travel tent. Even less so when some of these things do not seem to work.…

Feature: Where somebody knows your name, maybe, probably

Pull up a stool in the player-made bars of Fallout 76

Despite living in the aftermath of a nuclear apocalypse, Fallout players have never been short on places to drink. It makes sense, I guess. If your days are spent fighting off irradiated terrors, it stands to reason you’d want to go somewhere to let off steam. But Fallout 76 launched without NPCs. Nary a bartender with a friendly ear to be seen (at least not…

Fallout 76 launches private servers as part of premium membership

Surprise! Fallout 76 now has a premium membership service selling the ability to host private servers as well as access to a number of items with clear in-game benefits. Named Fallout 1st, the service costs £12 per month or £100 for a whole year in one go. It's little surprise that hosting private servers costs cash but making them part of a service also selling…

Fallout 76 delays Wastelanders, but private servers arrive next week

Fallout 76's long-awaited flesh-and-blood NPCs won't be arrive in West Virginia this year. Bethesda has delayed the free Wastelanders update into early 2020, leaving players alone in the post-apocalypse with each other for a few months longer. But there's a silver lining to this mushroom cloud. Private Worlds finally arrive in Fallout 76 next week, giving survivors the option for some much-needed permanence.

Doom Eternal new release date, gameplay, trailer, multiplayer

So Doom Eternal has been put back a few months into an already busy March period. Not the best of things to have to report, but at the very least, those who will be getting the game via a pre-order are now getting a port of Doom 64 as an apology. Below is an updated version of everything you need to know about Doom Eternal.

Doom Eternal is delayed into 2020, but at least Doom 64 is coming to PC

If you've been looking forward to Doom Eternal as respite from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, I come bearing bad news: it's been delayed. Previously due on November 22nd, Doom Eternal is now due on March 20th, 2020. Id Software say they want more time to, y'know, make it proper good. To balance out the bad news, Id also announced that 1997's…

Fallout 76 will be getting a public test server and perk loadouts in 2020

I can’t believe it’s been ten months since I was camped in Fallout 76’s wrecked Appalachia for the winter. I had a good time with ‘76, and I would probably return if something big enough happened to warrant a revisit. So it's nice to know that Bethesda are still stirring the coals of the game - they've announced a public test server is coming next…

Rage 2’s first DLC lets you telekinetically hurl ghosts

Rage 2's wasteland is riddled with ghosts, thanks to its first whack of DLC. Sadly, though, the rising ghosts in Rise Of The Ghosts are not spectral nasties, but a bandit clan from the first game. Someone has taken over and experimented on everyone until they've got superpowers though, so that's good. More importantly, yesterday's DLC added a new Nanotripe ability that lets you telekinetically…

20,000 Fallout 76 power armour helmets are being recalled due to health risk

Just as it seemed like Bethesda had sorted their issues with nylon collector's bags, it turns out they've gone and sold a health hazard disguised as a Fallout 76 helmet. Manufacturer Chronicle has issued a recall of an estimasted 20,000 T-51b Power Armor collectible helmets sold by US retailer GameStop over a risk of mold exposure.

Fallout 76’s first raid unlocks, welcoming you to a greenhouse of terror

The heavy doors of post-apocalyptic West Virginia are finally chu-chunking open, like rusty flowers waking up to the nuclear spring. Vault 94 has joined Fallout 76’s titular vault, opening itself to the oddball Appalachians and asking them to investigate what went wrong down there in the plant-choked bunker.
