Skyrim: Special Edition Brings Way Better Graphics to PS4 This Year

Fus Ro Dayum

As the leaks foretold, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is bringing its brand of open world fantasy to PlayStation 4 later this year. The remastered edition was confirmed by Bethesda during its E3 2016 press conference. Dubbed The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition, it'll boast enhanced graphics thanks to a number of visual tweaks,...

You Can Download DOOM's First Level on PS4 for Free

DOOM's day

Shareware was a big deal when DOOM first started out, so Bethesda's trying to bring back some of that love – by basically releasing a demo for the FPS on the PlayStation Store. The trial – which features the first level from the critically acclaimed campaign – is available on the PlayStation 4 right now, so give it a go if you want...

Did Bethesda Bring the Big Guns to E3 2016?

All of the Fallout

This year marked only the second ever Bethesda press conference, but already the organisation feels like part of the E3 furniture. Its media briefing earlier today centred on the likes of Dishonored 2 and Fallout 4 DLC, but it also included announcements of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition and Prey, too. But what did...

Wolfenstein: The New Colossus May Be the Next Title from Machine Games

Shadow of the Colossus

A dismal Bethesda press conference concluded without any mention of the rumoured Wolfenstein 2 – or did it? Eagle-eyed fans spotted reference to The New Colossus in the media briefing's inspired DOS opening, with its release date blanked out. It's safe to assume that this is what Machine Games is working on – even though...

Bethesda to Bring Prey 2, The Evil Within 2, and Wolfenstein 2 to E3 2016

2 much

Bethesda's press conference at E3 2015 seemed like a fancy way of announcing Fallout 4, so we were taken aback when it revealed that it would be repeating the song and dance this year. But apparently it's got plenty to show, with rumours swirling that in addition to a remastered version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, it's also going to...

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Is Being Remastered for PS4

Perhaps it'll work this time?

Sharpen up your Fus Ro Dah chops, because Bethesda is apparently remastering The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the PlayStation 4.

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...

Fallout 4 Mods Set to Arrive on PS4 Next Month

So close yet so far

Fallout 4 mods are arriving on Xbox One at the end of the month, but Bethesda thankfully hasn't forgotten about the PlayStation Nation. After announcing a release date for mods on Microsoft's machine, the developer followed up by saying that mod support is "still on track for next month" with regards to PlayStation 4 players...

Bethesda Actively Working on Improvements for Fallout 4: Far Harbor's Framerate

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. Many argued that we should have given the expansive expansion a pass considering the quality of the content contained within, but we believe that critical framerate issues such as those encountered in this instance...

Review: Fallout 4: Far Harbor (PS4)

Fallout 4: Far Harbor (PS4)

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

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...
