  • Feature Has Fallout 4's Season Pass Been Worth It?

    We take a look back at all the DLC

    It's almost been one whole year since Fallout 4 launched, believe it or not. Thanks to a total of six downloadable content offerings, it's safe to say that Bethesda's done a good job of keeping Fallout 4 relevant over the last 10 or so months. Every new DLC release has been met with widespread media coverage, and...

  • News Corvo's Even More Powerful in Dishonored 2

    Corvo blimey

    With a suite of supernatural powers at his disposal, Dishonored lead Corvo's not the kind of guy you want to mess with. Unfortunately for a load of meat-faced guards that stand between him and his objective, they don't have much of a choice - well, unless he takes the non-lethal route. However, Dishonored 2's new gameplay trailer's...

    Review Fallout 4: Nuka World

    Capping things off

    Fallout 4's selection of post-release content has been divisive. Many will tell you that far too much emphasis has been placed upon the title's settlement crafting system, while others will swear that Far Harbor is better than the main game. From where we're sitting, it feels like Bethesda's latest hasn't quite lived up to its...

    Dropped like a bomb

    After months of waiting for mod support for Fallout 4 on PlayStation 4, Bethesda has finally issued a statement that provides some clarity on the matter. We've know for a while that Bethesda has been trying to get mods up and running on the current-gen console, but for whatever reason, discussions with Sony have never quite...

  • News Bethesda Won't Comment on Fallout: New Orleans Rumours

    Crawl out through the Fallout

    Last month, we reported on a trademark for something called Fallout: New Orleans. Almost as soon as the news got out, the 'net was awash in speculation, with many hoping and praying that Bethesda was going to allow another studio to have a crack at the Fallout franchise, much like Obsidian did with Fallout: New Vegas...

  • News The Elder Scrolls Online Runs in Native 4K on PS4 Pro

    That's quite the jump

    The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited doesn't look bad on PlayStation 4, but it doesn't look fantastic, either - as you'd probably expect from such a colossal MMO running on console hardware. However, developer Zenimax Online Studios has confirmed that the title will take advantage of the newly announced PlayStation 4...

  • News No, Skyrim Special Edition Doesn't Include Extra Story Content

    Don't believe the lies

    Where did this story even come from? Over the last couple of weeks, we've seen numerous sites - sites which won't be named - reporting on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition's "expanded story content", even though developer Bethesda has never mentioned, nor even hinted that such content will feature within the...

  • Hands On How Does Fallout 4: Nuka World Run on PS4?

    Please don't be another Far Harbor

    If you were around for that whole saga with Far Harbor's horrible frame rate issues on PlayStation 4, then you'll know that we here at Push Square take technical performance quite seriously.

  • News Fallout 4's New Nuka World Trailer Shows the Sinister Side of Safety

    Bottled

    With Nuka World now only days away, Bethesda has saw fit to release a new trailer for Fallout 4's final slice of downloadable content - but don't go expecting a load of new gameplay. Instead, the developer's opted for another comical cartoon much like the title's S.P.E.C.I.A.L. video series. In this particular clip, Nuka World mascots...

  • News Fallout 4: Vault-Tec Workshop on PS4 Has Been Patched, Here's How to Update

    Not your usual patch

    Bethesda's reportedly fixed a bunch of issues with Fallout 4's Vault-Tec Workshop add-on, but this isn't your usual PlayStation 4 download. Much like when the developer smoothed out Far Harbor's poor frame rate, you'll have to follow the steps that the studio has outlined in order to apply the update. Confirm Fallout 4 is...

  • Gamescom 2016 Prey on PS4 Will Mug You Off

    Coffee break

    Bethesda's released a short snippet of sci-fi horror Prey's gameplay, demonstrating how you can assume the shape of well… Office mugs in order to navigate the alien infested space station Talos I. We're not entirely sure why the publisher's opting to demo this reboot in drips and drabs, but we do reckon that the BioShock-inspired...

  • News Massive Elder Scrolls Online PS4 Patch Promises Better Performance

  • Rumour Fallout: New Orleans Logo Trademarked

    Could be a fake

    With mod support still yet to come to Fallout 4's PS4 edition, a new game in the series is probably on the bottom of many people's wishlists.

    Arkane Studios' latest steps out

    Pray tell us more about your PlayStation 4 reboot Prey, Bethesda. Oh, you're going to drop a gameplay trailer out of nowhere? Well, if you insist. As you can see from the embedded video, Arkane Studios' latest very much falls under the psychological sci-fi shooter umbrella – with BioShock powers to boot. It's set...

  • News Expect a Fallout 4: Far Harbor Performance Improving Patch Next Week on PS4

    See through the fog

    We were kind of hoping that Bethesda would be able to get a patch out earlier in the week to address Fallout 4: Far Harbor's serious frame rate issues on PlayStation 4, but it sadly didn't arrive in time for the weekend. However, over on its official Twitter account, the developer has confirmed that a fix is incoming. "We've...

  • News Just How Bad Is Fallout 4: Far Harbor on PS4?

    Pretty damn horrendous

    We got a lot of stick for our Fallout 4: Far Harbor review this week, with many criticising reviewer Robert Ramsey for taking the title's framerate to task. However, a Digital Foundry investigation proves just how bad the expansion runs on Sony's new-gen system, with the rele

    Fog of war

    Our review of Fallout 4: Far Harbor went live this week, heavily criticising the add-on's performance on the PlayStation 4.

    Review Fallout 4: Far Harbor

    Fogging hell

    The fog of Far Harbor is to be feared. It inflicts radiation poisoning on those who dare to trek through it, it gives birth to horribly slimy creatures of the deep, and it does an admirable job of obscuring your view of the fiends that stalk the wilderness. The island's residents have a right to fear the mist: it keeps them penned...

  • Hands On Fallout 4: Far Harbor's Frame Rate Is Unacceptable on PS4

    Come on, Bethesda

    What a disappointment this turned out to be. Fallout 4 is easily the best performing title that Bethesda has ever released on a PlayStation platform, but its first big expansion, Far Harbor, is in a real state right now. We're just a few hours into the highly anticipated add-on, and we're honestly finding it difficult to keep...

    Leviticus 26:7

    It wasn't until Wolfenstein: The New Order that we noticed how homogeneous first-person shooters have become over the past decade. The genre's certainly made strides forward, but from a big picture perspective, we've spent the past decade or so taking cover and performing pot-shots to reach our objectives. However, MachineGames'...

  • Hands On Dispatching Demons in DOOM on PS4

    \m/

    DOOM wastes no time setting out its stall. There a pentagram, a pistol, and one of Satan's soldiers. Pew, pew – off we go. Extremely late review copies mean that we've only just managed to get our hands on id Software's key card collecting sim – but does this unashamedly old-school FPS make a strong first impression? We're about three or...

  • News Here's What You Can Expect From DOOM's Action-Packed Single Player Campaign

    DOOM's out in just a couple of days on PlayStation 4, so it's nice of Bethesda to release some new gameplay footage while we sit here waiting for our review copy to arrive. Snark aside, we're hoping that the shooter's single player campaign is up to snuff, because what we've seen of it so far has looked promising. In the game's...

  • Rumour Cancelled Open World Sci-Fi Title Prey 2 Could Be Revived at E3 2016

    Close encounters

    Those of you with good memories may remember a game called Prey 2, which was announced for the PlayStation 3 back in 2011.
