UK Sales Charts: The Elder Scrolls Online Explores the Summit

Back on its throne

Despite a troubled PC launch, the console version of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited has wandered to the top of the UK sales charts. Surprisingly, the game actually sold best on the Xbox One, despite recent role-playing releases like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt faring stronger on Sony's format. It's not clear at the time...

Drop the bomb

Bethesda dropped a veritable wealth of Fallout 4 gameplay footage overnight, but if you've absorbed every second of that several times over – well, perhaps you may be willing to stare at some stills.

Dishonored 2 PS4 Will Take You to Karnaca

Step aside Dunwall

Dishonored 2 was announced for the PlayStation 4 during Bethesda's media briefing last night – much, we suspect, to the surprise of no one. What was a shock, however, is that the title will feature two playable protagonists: Corvo Attano from the original game and Emily Kaldwin. And now, courtesy of some official press m

DOOM PS4 Deals Death to Demons in Spring 2016

Middle finger from Mars

Have we all recovered from Bethesda's laser-focused presser yet? Despite making its E3 2015 media briefing debut, the Zenimax-owned organisation knocked it out of the park with its presentation last night – and then proceeded to stamp awesome all over our faces. Fallout 4 may have been the highlight, but credit must go to...

First time plucky

And we're off. Unless you're a big Nintendo fan – we've heard that there are one or two of you out there – then Bethesda's big E3 2015 press conference may have just marked the start of your show.

Fallout 4's Combat Gameplay Trailer Features Rocket-Fuelled Power Armour

Next-gen has arrived

Combat has evolved in Fallout 4, as evidenced by the game's most bombastic E3 2015 trailer. Showcasing rifles, lasers, a ton of different armour sets, and plenty of gore, this is one post-apocalyptic video that you don't want to miss. V.A.T.S returns as you slow time and pick your opponents apart piece by piece, but Bethesda...

E3 2015: DOOM Multiplayer Goes Old-School on PS4

DOOM Multiplayer Goes Old-School on PS4

Arena action

How do you reboot a franchise like DOOM? Well, you make it familiar – but amplify everything so it feels fresh again. The single player footage for id Software's first-person reboot literally left this author slack-jawed earlier today – and the multiplayer ain't looking half bad either. While the developer was a little less...

Dishonored: Definitive Edition Sneaks onto PS4 This Fall

All the DLC and some snazzy visuals

The rumours are true, turns out. After showing off the likes of Dishonored 2, Bethesda announced that a new-gen Definitive Edition of 2012's Dishonored is coming to the PlayStation 4 this autumn, or fall, for you Americans. It was a rather brief announcement, however, as tonight's focus was clearly on new games...

Fallout 4's Insane Crafting System Looks Like a Very Next-Gen Feature

Handyman

No one quite saw this coming: Fallout 4 will feature an absolutely ridiculous crafting system that covers everything from weapons and power armour, to player homes and even settlements. Showcased during Bethesda's earlier E3 2015 press conference, the whole thing looks stupidly in-depth, and essentially, it'll allow you to sculpt your...

DOOM Snapmap Lets You Create and Share Your Own Personal Hell

LittleBigDOOM

Bethesda opened its inaugural E3 press conference with a rather impressive, and astoundingly gory, demo of its reboot of the DOOM franchise. Arguably one of the most exciting announcements, though, was of a feature which allows you to create and share your own maps and levels. Titled Snapmap, this new mode gives you what appears to be...

Xbox Expats May Prefer This Hori PS4 Controller

Asymmetrical sticks FTW

Data shows that a lot of ex-Xbox fans have made the switch to the PlayStation 4 this generation, but not everyone's happy with the placement of the DualShock 4's analogue sticks. While many of us have grown up with Sony's symmetrical layout, others are more familiar with the asymmetrical format adopted by Microsoft – but...
