  • News DOOM's Hellscape Gets a 4K Update Tomorrow

    Ripping it in 4K

    Looking for a reason to replay one of 2016's greatest, DOOM? You may well have that kick up the butt now thanks to an update hitting tomorrow that will bump the first-person shooter's resolution up to 4K on the PlayStation 4 Pro. Take a look at the trailer above that reminds us just how good that soundtrack was two years back. Will...

  • News The Elder Scrolls Online Expands to the Summerset Isles This June

    Have you heard of the High Elves?

    Bethesda's announced a brand new expansion for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, and it's heading to PlayStation 4 this summer. Much like The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind -- which launched last year -- the fresh expansion will whisk players away to a new region, which will house its own story and...

  • News Bethesda Dates Its E3 2018 Press Conference

    The big B's back

    More E3 news? Lord have mercy. This time, Bethesda's gone ahead and dated its E3 press conference, or 'showcase' according to the above video. The big B's event will take place on the 10th June at 18:00 PST, so that's... 02:00 UK time. If we remember right, that's a little earlier than last year, but we're still going to be up...



  • News PREY Was Originally a New IP, Name Suggested by Bethesda

    Lead designers confirm

    Upon its release last May, much of the chatter surrounding PREY revolved around its lack of any connection to the 2006 edition. While it was a great game, it was almost as if the name had been slapped on after the fact because it sounded cool, and now we have confirmation of that. Speaking to Danny O'Dwyer's NoClip, former...

    Review DOOM VFR


    Bethesda sure are the good guys this Christmas, eh? After coveting controversy with its review code policy over a year ago, the publisher’s really recaptured the adoration of gamers this holiday, supporting fledgling new formats like the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation VR. And following on from last month’s transformative virtual...




  • News Skyrim's Getting a Full Survival Mode, But It's Part of the Crappy Creation Club


    Skyrim's getting a survival mode? Cool! Or so we thought. Bethesda has revealed that it's bringing an all-new survival mode to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Special Edition. It adds all the things that you'd expect, like having to eat, drink, and sleep in order to survive. Temperature also plays a part, meaning that you'll have to...

  • Hands On Is Skyrim Any Good with PlayStation VR?

    Fus ro dang

    PlayStation VR, in this author’s opinion, is at its best when it’s offering brief bursts of immersive gameplay like SUPERHOT VR and Batman: Arkham VR. Despite this personal preference, it’d take a very closeted editor to ignore the pent-up demand for meatier experiences from PlayStation’s very vocal fanbase – and games don’t...

    Review Fallout 4

    V.A.T.S. more like it

    Republished on Tuesday 26th September 2017: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the release of Fallout 4's Game of the Year edition on PlayStation 4. The original text follows. Well, here we are. Seven years after Bethesda's last crack at post-apocalyptic America, Fallout 4 is easily one of the...

  • News Fallout 4 Game of the Year Edition Wanders onto PS4 Today

    War never changes

    Fallout 4's long awaited but always inevitable Game of the Year edition is out today on PlayStation 4. It includes the base game and all of its downloadable content. It's a pretty huge package, that's for sure. Fallout 4 first launched back in November of 2015, and although it was never quite able to capture the heart of many a...

  • News Fear 20 Minutes of The Evil Within 2 Gameplay

    Dead good?

    The Evil Within 2 is out in a matter of weeks now, and Bethesda hasn't been shy about publishing new gameplay footage. This time it's Game Informer who's gone live with 20 minutes of terror from the forthcoming Tango Gameworks developed sequel. Can you feel the heat from here?

    Review Dishonored: Death of the Outsider

    Lurking around

    The immersive sim is one of the most rewarding genres in gaming. The more you put into them, the more you get in return, and the Dishonored series is one of the best examples of this in recent years. Death of the Outsider is a smaller scale adventure at around half the length of 2016’s Dishonored 2, but it retains the same brilliant...

  • News Watch the Bodies Hit the Floor in The Evil Within 2 Trailer

    Dead good

    Ain’t nothing subtle about this The Evil Within 2 trailer as protagonist Sebastian Castellanos hangs with religious cultists and cuts the throats of all kinds of reanimated corpses. With the survival horror sequel being barely a month away, it doesn’t feel like there’s much hype for Tango Works’ latest terror – but we’re sure...

  • News No, Bethesda Doesn't Have an Unannounced Game Coming Out This Year

    So says Pete Hines

    There's a story doing the rounds today that Bethesda has an unannounced game ready to be released before the year is out. Said story is based on an interview with VP of marketing Pete Hines in which he states that the company has a secret project due to launch in 2018. Naturally, this kind of comment got people talking. What the...





  • News Prepare For Much Backstabbing in The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind

    Daggers in the night

    The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind promises a politically-charged plotline as the region's most powerful houses attempt to seize control. That means we can probably expect assassination attempts and other events that shift the balance. Like the main game, we imagine that there'll be plenty of room for player choice when it...

    Review PREY

    Would Yu kindly?

    2017 has been a magical year for games thus far. The first few months were crammed with more amazing titles than we’ve seen in entire years before. But this hot streak must end sometime, right? Well, Arkane Studios – specifically, the company's second studio in Texas – has ensured it's not the ones to end this streak, as...

  • Round Up PREY PS4 Reviews Are a Real BioShock

    Arkane at it again

    The first batch of PREY reviews are in, and they’re overwhelmingly positive. Bethesda obviously maintained its policy of not sending out review code until launch day – actually, we got it 24 hours earlier, but still not quick enough to bring you our verdict just yet – but that hasn’t stopped a handful of sites from zipping...

  • News PREY Amps Up the Volume in PS4 Launch Trailer

    Fight the invasion

    PREY may share a lot in common with BioShock, but you’d think it’s more akin to DOOM if you just watched this launch trailer. Bethesda clearly feels that the best way to sell its new first-person shooter is by turning up the volume, and so there’s just under 120 seconds of unadulterated action on display here. Are you...




  • News Take Control of a Toilet Roll in Prey on PS4

    Cushelle then

    Our very own Ben Tarrant wrote a brilliant hands on piece for Prey a week or so ago, outlining all of the systems you can expect to find in the final game. But for as good as his write-up was, he probably only needed one sentence: you can transform into a toilet roll. Sold.

  • News Take a Trip Back to Morrowind in The Elder Scrolls Online's New Gameplay Trailer

    Cue theme music

    The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind launches this summer on PlayStation 4, and it's easily the MMO's biggest ever expansion. As its name suggests, the new adventure takes players to Morrowind - a land filled with nostalgia for those who sunk hundreds of hours into The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind back in the day. The game's latest...

  • Hands On Jumping at Shadows in Prey on PS4

    A player chooses, the prey obeys

    Welcome to the first-person perspective of Morgan Yu, the androgynous protagonist of Prey. Once you've assigned Morgan a gender (a choice with no experiential ramifications) you awake in Morgan's apartment, decorated in a style delicately coined 'neo-deco' that somehow feels like a familiar sight. It's here that Prey...

  • News Fallout 4's PS4 Pro Patch Brings Some Big Improvements

    That's rad

    Fallout 4 got its PS4 Pro patch last week, meaning that the game is now officially supported by Sony's supercharged system. As many of you will no doubt be aware, the open world title doesn't run brilliantly on a standard PlayStation 4, with regular frame rate drops hurting the overall experience. Fortunately, Digital Foundry has...

  • News Fallout 4 PS4 Patch 1.14 Out Now, Features Pro Support

    Drop the bomb

    If you've been hankering for some high resolution post-apocalyptic adventuring then you're in luck, as Fallout 4's latest update is out now on PlayStation 4. Only weighing in at 461MB, patch 1.14 brings PS4 Pro support to Bethesda's popular role-playing release. Pro users can expect things like increased resolution, better draw...

  • News Don't Get Your Hopes Up for Fallout Shelter on PS4

    Bethesda doesn't seem to have plans

    Fallout Shelter's had a good run on mobile devices since it was revealed at Bethesda's E3 2015 press conference, but with the game's recent Xbox One launch, some fans have been wondering whether it'll eventually make its way onto PlayStation 4. As always, we find ourselves turning to PR boss Pete Hine's Twitter...
