Starfield’s latest tease shows that Bethesda is embracing its fantasy roots

On the one hand, their space bound epic depicts a realistic sci-fi future. On the other, it’s got a big swirly thing in it. It’s a pretty good week to be a Bethesda fan, because now we have two very important dates to mark in the calendar: firstly, on June 11th, we’re getting the much promised Starfield focused direct (which was recently reported to be imminent, but I guess we’re going to have to wait until the magical E3 period for any more reveals, like usual). Secondly, on the 6th of September, the thing will actually – probably, hopefully –…

Fallout 5 Is Bethesda’s Next Game After Elder Scrolls 6, Will Probably Be Out By 2050

In an interview published today, Bethesda’s creative director Todd Howard revealed the studio’s future plans, explaining that after the Elder Scrolls 6 comes out, the studio’s next game will be Fallout 5, the next main entry in the company’s post-apocalyptic open-world RPG franchise. However, considering how long it takes Bethesda to make these big games, don’t expect either RPG to launch any time in the near future. During an interview with IGN, Howard laid out very clearly and openly what Bethesda Game Studios was going to be working on for the next few years. Specifically, the plan currently is to…

Trees make for good quests in games don’t they?

We’re nearing the end of the year and my brain’s battery is flashing red. There’s some Christmassy-ness flowing in to tide me over, thanks to the mini-Christmas tree in my room. Every year it’s popped on the wardrobe alongside an honorary Lynx Africa. They share the same festive colours, after all. Having pondered my tree for a bit, I thought about trees in games and how they make for good side quests. Now join me by the bark, as I examine why this might be the case in a roundabout manner.

Loads of Xbox 360 games have received mysterious updates ahead of Xbox’s 20th anniversary

Some fan-favourite Xbox 360 games have received updates ahead of Xbox’s big 20th anniversary event later this week. I don’t know about you, but Xbox is feeling 20, too. Ahead of the company’s planned anniversary stream tomorrow, Microsoft has issued a series of updates to some fan-favourite Xbox 360 games that may end up enhancing backwards compatibility for the titles. A lot of the titles are from Bethesda, so it makes sense that Xbox wants to shine a light on them – what’s the point in acquiring a company for $7.5 billion if you can’t show off the goods, after…

Oh my god, Fallout 3 has removed Games For Windows Live

After 13 years, Fallout 3 has finally removed Microsoft’s reviled (and broken) Games For Windows Live service from the Steam release. Hooray! FO3 is still busted because Bethesda haven’t updated the game to run happily on modern Windows, but I’ll take any opportunity to dance on GFWL’s grave. However, avoid the update if you play FO3 with lots of mods. Read more
