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…

Wolfenstein: Youngblood announced, is co-op with BJ’s daughters

The splendid new line of Wolfenstein first-person shooters from MachineGames will continue next year with Wolfenstein: Youngblood, a cooperative game starring BJ Blazkowicz's twin daughters. It's set in 1980, see, 19 years after Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Would you be surprised to hear that the twins are also very keen on shooting Nazis? Meet 'em in the game's announcement trailer.

Rage 2 blasts first gameplay video

Tonight we got our first real look at Rage 2, the sequel to Id Software's 2011 post-apocalyptic drive-o-shooter, in its first gameplay video. After Andrew WK and his chums finished rocking out on stage, anyway (a thing that happened, and I was glad to see at 2:30am?). Click on through for faceshooting, carfights, and some real fancy superpowers.

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…

Quake Champions updates with bots and detailed gibs

The game has hit some bumps along the way, but arena shooter revival Quake Champions has made steady, sure steps towards its goal to revitalise the genre over the past few months. Today's update brings the game just that little bit closer to the ideal, introducing bots for practice play (and to fill empty slots if someone bails from your team), and a gratuitously detailed gore…

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 Online: Summerset is out, definitely isn’t set in the West Country

You lot already knew there was a place in Tamriel called Summerset, didn't you? I didn't. I'm finding out now with the release of The Elder Scrolls Online's latest expansion, and the idea of encountering "shining cities, vibrant forests, tropical lagoons, coral caves, mysterious ruins and more" in a certain British county is amusing me an unduly amount. I don't know about most of that,…

Quake Champions adds battle bots and more specific gore

Quake Champions is a delightful return to the origins of the arena shooter, and although the title is in Early Access at this point, there's still a ton of DLC and other add-on content you can buy. That's fun, right? I always find paid content in an unreleased game odd. Anyhow, there's a lot to be actually excited about here, as the game is getting…

Secret patch updates Prey with REM lyrics as achievements

I love to start the weekend off right. And by that, I mean seeing some fun video game news that makes me shout at my screen uncontrollably. Look, there's no bigger fan of Prey than your boy Brock here. Heck, I'm a fan of all Preys. But now, it seems Michael Stipe is giving me a run for my money. While we already know that…

Feature: Out think Caesar's Legion

Old World Blues translates Fallout to grand strategy

Democracy is on the brink of collapse. Caesar's Legion, the authoritarian slave state across the Colorado River, has launched a massive assault on the last, best chance for freedom in the post-apocalyptic world of Fallout. It's a grim certainty in Old World Blues that the New California Republic will fight Caesar's Legion: they're the wasteland's two superpowers, diametrically opposed ideologically, each expanding towards the other.…

Rage 2 gameplay trailer explodes out

Bethesda Softworks have blasted a 'gameplay trailer' for Rage 2, following yesterday's terse announcement and unexpectedly colourful live-action music video doodad. This new vid is full of mutants, mechs, cars, guns, and giant throwable fidget spinners. The sequel to Id Software's 2011 post-apocalyptic FPS is drafting help from Avalanche Studios, the mob behind Mad Max and Just Cause, which is a curious and exciting pairing.…

Rage 2 announced with blast of colours

Id Software's 2011 post-apocalyptic first-person drive-o-shooter Rage is finally receiving a follow-up, publishers Bethesda announced today. They do not say much about Rage 2 beyond the fact that it exists, which was kinda already known following a spate of leaks over the past few days. But! Rage 2! That's good. The original game's carfights were a bit bland and the whole thing smashed into its…

Odd heroes join Quake Champions, official and otherwise

Quake Champions: So nice, they made it twice. We all know about Bethesda/Id's revival of the arena shooter franchise, but don't go overlooking the Doom community's impressive QC:DE project, adapting the formula of the game to a more old-school engine with its own fresh collection of playable characters. This week, both got significant updates. On Bethesda's side of the fence, the game now lets you…

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,…

Best Fallout 4 Mods

Now that Fallout 4 is in its third year and the DLC has dried up, is there any point in returning to the Commonwealth Wasteland? Yes! There are loads, largely thanks to the still-growing list of mods, overhauls and user tweaks. Here, I’ve gathered over 50 of my favourites, ranging from weird weapons to wild weather. Before we start, a couple of things to remember:…

The Elder Scrolls Online’s next expansion explores High Elven lands

Back in my day, if a game tanked, that was it. You just shrugged and moved on, but these days? Whippersnappers keep on fixing things. Improvin' stuff, as if the medium was malleable or something. After FFXIV, The Elder Scrolls Online is probably the next strongest comeback that an MMO has made. Completely replacing its business model and progression systems after a very wonky initial launch,…
