    You've got to be Kidman me

    The threads of The Evil Within's convoluted plot will get increasingly tangled next month, as Bethesda has announced that add-on pack The Assignment is imminent.

  • News All of Skyrim's Writings Can Be Yours Thanks to This Hardback Book Series 

    Knowledge is power

    You may have picked up its books purely to see if they granted you a lovely skill increase, but a heck of a lot of effort must have been put into The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's vast amount of in-game literature. From stories of adventure to The Lusty Argonian Maid, Bethesda's open world role-playing game was full to the brim with...

  • News Bethesda Shines a Light on The Evil Within DLC

    Don't tease us, please

    With unforgiving combat, a surreal storyline, and infrequent checkpoints, last year's The Evil Within was a case of horror game Marmite – you either loved it or you hated it. Assuming that you fall into the former camp, though, you may be excited to learn that DLC is on the way, with 'The Assignment' due out in March...

  • News Bethesda's Bringing Something Big to E3 2015

    Review The Evil Within

    Clair de Loony

    The Evil Within knows how to make you sweat. Tango Gameworks’ disgusting debut outing will leave you teetering on the precipice of failure with every twisted encounter, causing you to curse your shortage of resources or your character’s lack of superhuman strength. This is a game that, like its survival horror superiors, isn’t...

  • News You Really Shouldn't Expect Oculus Rift Support on PS4

    John Carmack's not holding his breath

    In a development about as predictable as the day making way for night, industry legend John Carmack has quit his role at id Software.

    Boston dead sox

    Twist of fate

    Dishonored’s latest DLC completes raspy-voiced assassin Daud’s story, continuing from previous add-on The Knife of Dunwall, as he pursues the mysterious Brigmore Witches and their leader, Delilah. Of course, if you’ve played through the original game, you’ll have some idea as to how Daud’s tale comes to an end. As such, the...

    Dragonborn to win

  • News Wolfenstein: The New Order Fired into Next Year

    Back in the barrel

    Wolfenstein: The New Order, the brash first-person reboot by MachineGames, has been delayed until 2014, Bethesda executive Pete Hines has told Polygon.

  • E3 2013 Wolfenstein: The New Order Trailer Drops Some Big Bombs

    Afraid of the future

    Wolfenstein: The New Order may essentially boil down to another first-person shooter with mechs, but at least developer Machine Games has gone out of its way to include some harrowing imagery in this E3 trailer. We’re not talking about the Nazi branded bombs or even the moon landing – but that terrifying alternate version of...

  • News Skyrim Version 1.9 Enters Beta, Venturing to PS3 This Month

    Keep on slayin’

    You have to give Bethesda credit for continuing to support The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for more than a year – and it seems like they have no intention of stopping just yet. The company has announced a brand new update for the open world epic, and it adds a couple of surprising new features. Firstly, a new ‘Legendary’...

  • First Impressions Taking Sides with Skyrim’s Dawnguard DLC

    Bloody good

    Consider Dawnguard’s arrival on PlayStation 3 a late Hallowe’en present from Bethesda.

  • News RAGE's Anger Reignites with New DLC Expansion

    You remember RAGE, right?

    We’re so used to post-release plans being perfectly calculated that the apparent addition of new RAGE DLC has left us a little confused.

  • News The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's DLC Is Finally Coming to PS3

    Hallelujah

    After what seems like an eternity, Bethesda has confirmed that it is "close" to releasing new content for the PlayStation 3 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
