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.

Id & Bethesda games going cheap ahead of QuakeCon

The frags will flow like Bawls this weekend at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center, where Id Software are throwing their annual LAN party/convention, QuakeCon. Thousands of gib-hungry gremlins will lug their computers to Texas and many more will loiter around the festivities. It's become more ZenCon in recent years, featuring more from corporate siblings Bethesda and other studios and games owned by ZeniMax…

Doom 4 Reveal Will Not Leave QuakeCon, Apparently

So the new Doom game will emerge from its eons-long hellsleep at QuakeCon later this month. That much is known. I don't think it was unreasonable for people to assume that any and all footage would make its way onto the Internet in short order, given that this is the year 2014. That, however, apparently isn't the plan. Bethesda and id want to make this…

DOOM 4 Definitely Actually Really Revealed At QuakeCon

You know how id Software always used to say they'd tell us more about Doom 4 at QuakeCon? And that they really meant it this time? Then they stopped doing that because they never had anything to say about Doom 4? Well, you guys, they really mean it this time. They mean it so much, they've even whipped together a cinematic teaser trailer saying that…

The RAGE Rave: QuakeCon Is Go

QuakeCon. QUAKECON. QUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE-A-CONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN. Just saying that name makes me laugh: truly, it is the most testosteroney of all gaming conventions. If QuakeCon and BlizzCon were ever to merge, terrible, terrible things would happen. Fortunately, id's being owned by Bethesda these days means there's no risk of that happening. QuakeCon '11 isn't far off - the doors open August 4. It's going to be a big…

Smooth Moves: Brink Footage

Ah, QuakeCon leftovers. Delicious. Here we have two Brink videos via GameTrailers, one being Splash Damage boss Paul Wedgwood talking about the game in some depth - although with plenty of stuff we've heard before - and one talking about S.M.A.R.T., which is the game's unusual movement system. It's worth taking a look at that second one, at least, because it looks fairly intriguing. A…

QuakeCon Rage Footage Revealed

You know what? I'm feeling lazy. I'm going to say that id's Rage is looking like the midway point between Fallout 3 and FUEL. This half-arsed device allows me to indicate that it's post-apocalyptic, involves shooting creatures in wastegrounds, and racing cars through dust. But it's also incredibly unhelpful because it leaves behind notions of FO3's turn-based combat, or FUEL's mechanical world. It's Borderlands with…

Carmack, Rage: Extended Trailer

Eurogamer wrote up the Carmack keynote over here, in which he covers future tech and Quake Live stuff. The trailer, which you can see after the jump, is essentially the same footage as the E3 trailer, but with another section tacked on the end. It shows some kind of battle-racing tournament feature, with some shots of the racing itself. Hard to be sure how it'll…
