Toil and trouble
French developer Arkane Studios will conclude Dishonored’s post-release strategy with a third DLC pack named ‘The Brigmore Witches’. The expansion – which is due out on 13th August in North America and 14th August in Europe – will pick up where ‘The Knife of Dunwall’ left off, directly after antagonist Daud’s...
Despite what the developers may tell you, survival horror is as dead as the butchered corpses that once tormented the genre. Franchises that founded the format – the likes of Resident Evil, Silent Hill, and, to a lesser extent, Alone in the Dark – have gradually shed their endurance aspects, favouring rote supernatural shootouts in...
Reich for the stars
Wolfenstein: The New Order is unashamedly old-school. The product of Swedish upstart Machine Games – a new outfit comprised of Starbreeze veterans – the revamp endeavours to ditch the conventions that have consumed the first-person genre over the course of the current generation, evangelising classic staples such as...
The Elder Scrolls Online, the series' first foray into the MMO market, is heading to the PlayStation 4, Sony revealed during its E3 2013 keynote. The game, which sees you questing, journeying, and battling with friends and strangers alike, is set for a Spring 2014 release. The firm was also eager to announce a partnership with...
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...
Reboot assaulting store shelves soon
Wolfenstein: The New Order will re-imagine id’s first-person classic on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 later this year. Bethesda teased the title overnight, but has now officially confirmed the shooter. The release is in development at MachineGames, a studio comprising of ex-Starbreeze veterans. "We are...
Loot the complete adventure this summer
As expected, Bethesda has officially confirmed that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition will saddle up and trot onto store shelves on 4th June in North America and 7th June in Europe. The re-release – which bundles the core campaign with all of its DLC – will set you back $59.99/£39.99...
Supernova of horror
The Evil Within, Shinji Mikami’s macabre return to the forefront of survival horror, will take advantage of Bethesda’s proprietary id Tech 5 engine, according to information posted to the publisher’s Japanese website. The snippet – kindly translated by Gematsu – was accompanied by a slew of details about the game...
All you ever wanted, all you ever needed
Bethesda may have turned its attention away from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in favour of a more grotesque experience, but that’s not stopping the publisher from repackaging the title with all of its DLC.
Don't worry, it's just tomato sauce
Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami is returning to his roots on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 next year with The Evil Within. The title – which publisher Bethesda has been teasing for the past couple of days – was revealed on IGN mere moments ago, alongside a genuinely haunting li
Zwei to go
Hours after putting The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim out to pasture, Bethesda has launched a teaser for a new title. The publisher uploaded a mysterious video onto its Twitter account this afternoon, showing little more than barbed wire, a few books, and a vinyl record. Contrary to public opinion, though,
Fus ro dah
With hundreds of hours already on offer, Bethesda has ruled out the possibility of any further The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim content. Writing on its official blog, the company revealed that it's leaving behind the snowy peaks of Hrothgar in favour of its (hopefully warmer) next big adventure. "Skyrim has been a labour of love for us since...
New features added to open world epic
Bethesda will freshen up the PlayStation 3 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on PlayStation 3 later today, with the publisher confirming that the recently announced v1.9 update will deploy shortly. As previously detailed, the patch will include a laundry list of bug fixes, in addition to a new Legendary...
New content unsheathed for stealth title
Bethesda’s brilliant stealth sandbox Dishonored will make a comeback in April, as the title explores the narrative of antagonist assassin Daud in a new expansion named ‘The Knife of Dunwall’. The add-on – which is apparently the first of two story-based expansions – will launch on 16th April in...
Delighted with the extra memory
One of the developers behind last year’s surprise hit Dishonored has described Sony’s next generation system as “a joy”. Chatting with Eurogamer.net directly after last week’s BAFTAs, lead level designer Christopher Carrier revealed that the PlayStation 4’s surprise inclusion o
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’...
Consider Dawnguard’s arrival on PlayStation 3 a late Hallowe’en present from Bethesda. The latest The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim expansion is full of vampires, creepy rituals, spooky old castles, and a lot of violence. There’s also a lot of epic questing thrown in for good measure, too. Just like Dragonborn, there’s an awful...
There are two sides to every story
Dishonored will get a second helping of post-release content named ‘The Other Side of the Coin’ shortly, if a new batch of leaked Trophies are to be believed. The digital trinkets – which popped up on PS3Trophies.org earlier today – point to the addition of new story content, evidenced by the reward...
Sitting beside the furnace
Hearthfire isn’t quite what you’d expect from a piece of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim DLC. This doesn't offer an epic journey into the heart of an unknown land – it’s about expanding your experience through lovey-dovey stuff like making you and your spouse a new residence from scratch, or adopting children. In...
Back to the brink
After more than a year without DLC, the PlayStation 3 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim finally gets some love from Bethesda. In this case, the latest Skyrim DLC to release on other platforms is the first on PS3 – and it’s arguably the best of the bunch. In an attempt to make up for the delay, Bethesda and Sony saw fit...
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s long-overdue DLC will finally stumble onto the PlayStation 3 in North America this month. The first pack, Dragonborn, will arrive on 12th February, and will be followed by Hearthfire on 19th February and Dawnguard on 26th February. There’s no word on a European release just yet, but publisher...
Sound the trumpets
It’s been a long, laborious journey, but The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s DLC will finally arrive on PlayStation 3 in February. Bethesda confirmed the glad tidings in a PlayStation Blog post, noting that Dragonborn, Hearthfire, and Dawnguard will all launch within the window, and will be accompanied by a 50 per cent discount to...
We certainly hope so
Sometimes it can be tough to keep your mouth shut. Projects leak all of the time thanks to loose lips – it’s what keeps our job interesting. But you’ve got to give credit to Fallout 3 voice actor Erik Todd Dellums: at least he checked first. Posting on Twitter late last night, the voiceover artist – best known for his...
Dishonored publisher Bethesda has clearly exhausted its reserve of creepy nursery rhymes, as it’s been forced to use a fan-made rap song for this debut Dunwall City Trials trailer. The video demonstrates the various deadly activities you can expect to occupy your time when the expansion launches next week. It’ll set you back...
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s latest expansion pack Dragonborn will fly onto the PlayStation 3 in early 2013, publisher Bethesda has announced. The add-on is due out on the Xbox 360 tomorrow, but will officially spread to Sony’s system next year. It concludes almost a year of excuses from the developer, as content has frequently sk
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. It’s been over a year since the first-person shooter originally launched on PlayStation 3, and it hasn’t exactly maintained much mindshare since then. As such, the addition of ten...
Keep your cool
You’d be forgiven for forgetting about The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s DLC, but Bethesda promises that the content is still coming to the PlayStation 3. The publisher has spent an entire year trying to port the title’s expansion packs to Sony's system, but has so far failed to launch any post-release content for the platform...
The monarchs of Dunwall would like to cordially invite you to the City Trials set to take place in critically acclaimed PlayStation 3 adventure Dishonored next month. From 11th December, those who cough up the $4.99/£3.99 entrance fee will be able to partake in 10 challenge maps that have been specially designed to analyse your...
No sign of The Rock
If your trigger finger’s itching for some old-school first-person action, then the DOOM Classic Collection should catch your attention. The downloadable compilation – mentioned on this week’s episode of the PlayStation Blogcast among other places – will comprise DOOM, DOOM 2, and Final DOOM. The first two titles were...
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. Technical issues have delayed the content for months, despite it launching on the Xbox 360 and PC. But in a nonchalant Tweet posted earlier today, the publisher revealed that...
As leaked by Amazon Germany earlier today, Bethesda is planning to release a Premium Edition of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in certain territories across Europe. The specially prepared bundle will include a copy of the game, world map, t-shirt, novel, and six postcards. The package will release in the UK, Germany, and Benelux, but...
Reckon you’ve got the best of Dunwall’s royal guard? You’ll be able to put your confidence to the test this December with Dishonored’s first expansion pack, Dunwall City Trials. The add-on includes “10 Challenge Maps” that will examine your skill against waves of enemies, time-trials, and a “gravity-defying run of drop...
If you haven’t already seen the piles of praise being tossed at Dishonored, then this launch trailer should get you up to speed. Between scenes of protagonist Corvo slitting unsuspecting throats, there’s a selection of lofty media quotes. We’re playing the title right now, and can confirm that it’s pretty good. We’re not willing...
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s second major expansion pack, Hearthfire, launched on PC this week – but the post-release discussion has been focused solely on the content’s absence on PlayStation 3. Bethesda admitted recently that it was struggling to get the expansion – and its predecessor, Dawnguard – to run on...
While Xbox 360 owners enjoy the second The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim DLC pack, developer Bethesda has yet to release the first expansion on PlayStation 3. In fact, the company has revealed that it's struggling to get the content running on Sony’s platform at all – an unsurprising admission considering the game’s troubled launch...
No solution in sight
Bethesda has warned that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s Dawnguard DLC pack may never release on PlayStation 3. The content launched on Xbox 360 earlier this year, prompting the developer to release a statement noting that it was having difficulties with the PS3. Those issues are ongoing according to the company’s community...
The essence of invisibility
Stealth gameplay in Bethesda’s upcoming Dishonored promises to be a bit more engaging than simply studying guard patterns. Instead you’ll need to take into account sound, peripheral vision and cover. Blowing out candles and peaking around corners will give you an advantage over your pursuers – assuming you’ve got...
The drama surrounding Prey 2 has reared its ugly head once again – this time due to the fact that the delayed title has been removed from Bethesda’s recently revamped website. "Since we had already announced it wasn't coming out this year, we simply didn't think it'd be appropriate to include it on the new site launch," Pete...
Bethesda is supposedly researching Boston for Fallout 4, an anonymous tipster has revealed. The spy said on Reddit: “The rumours are true, Fallout 4 will take place in Boston. In case you haven’t heard, Bethesda has recently been scoping out and researching Boston. They also have a strong connection to MIT [Massachusetts Institute of...
The long and winding road
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will finally be updated to version 1.7 in North America this week. European players will have to wait an extra week, because, well, it’s customary on these shores, isn’t it? The patch implements a number of bug fixes, including “general memory and stability optimisations”. Unfortunately,...
Trip the light fantastic
Bethesda sure knows how to splash the cash on outrageous voice talent. The publisher has announced the cast-list for upcoming PS3 adventure Dishonored, and it’s practically bulging with Hollywood talent. Rocky Horror Picture Show legend Susan Sarandon will make her video game debut as Granny Rags, a mad old lady who’s...
Long wait ahead
Most developers have come to terms with the PlayStation 3’s unique architecture. Unlike at the start of the generation, it's now rare for a multiplatform title to perform significantly worse on Sony’s black box of tricks – but Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim remains a notable exception. The title launched in a...
Ooh, the choices...
Looking forward to Arkane Studios' upcoming action-adventure title, Dishonored? If so, you might want to think carefully about where you place your pre-order, as publisher Bethesda has assigned a selection of exclusive bonuses to major retailers in the UK. Amazon will be dishing out a cold serving of the Acrobatic Killer...
What's the problem?
Microsoft’s exclusivity deal with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is up, which means that last month’s Dawnguard expansion can finally arrive on PlayStation 3. That is, if it’s actually in development. “We have not announced Dawnguard for any other platform, nor given a timeline for any such news. If we have news, I promise...
Variety is the spice of life, and this new Dishonored trailer does its very best to prove it. The gameplay short shows three different escape routes from the Boyle Mansion, each indistinguishable from the other. Will you decide to brazenly sprint out of the police infested residence, or try to sneak away unseen? Personally, we...
Variety is the spice of life
While most games can explain the extent of their gameplay in a 60 second trailer, Bethesda’s upcoming Dishonored is a teensy bit more ambitious. When you’re not deliberating the current value of whale oil with fellow aristocrats, you’ll need to decide how best to approach a wealth of murderous acts. These two...
Hell on Earth
Bethesda’s clearly not worried about getting gobbled up by Resident Evil 6 and Assassin’s Creed III, as it’s announced a 16th October release date for the DOOM 3: BFG Edition in North America. Those of you in Europe will get an additional three days to prepare for the apocalypse, with the HD re-master scheduled to release on 19th...
Early in the morning
BioShock Infinite may have been delayed into 2013, but it looks like the industry has found its natural replacement. Bethesda’s released the first trailer for Arkane Studios’ upcoming cyber-punk adventure Dishonored, and it looks... well, brutal. We recently got a chance to check out the first-person adventure in action, so...
We’re pretty sure the flow of epic announcements isn’t going to stop until next week now. Bethesda’s the latest publisher to join the pre-E3 party, releasing the first trailer for Skyrim’s upcoming Dawnguard expansion pack. There’s all manner of goodness in the trailer, including a monologue that’s certain to get your...
Alone in the dark
Here’s an announcement we never expected to find in our inbox this afternoon: Bethesda is rereleasing DOOM 3 for PlayStation 3. The expanded shooter – appropriately entitled the DOOM 3: BFG Edition – will include remastered versions of the original game, its expansion pack and seven new levels called “The Lost Mission”...
Skyrim connection confirmed
It’s too hot for classic inglenook fireplaces here in the UK this week, but that’s not stopped the people of Skyrim from collecting around the hearth. Bethesda, the publisher of the critically acclaimed RPG, has filed a trademark for “Hearth Fire”, the latest in string of registrations relating to the popular...
The next big addition to Bethesda’s enormous role-playing game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is kind of unexpected. The publisher announced on its official blog that it is adding mounted combat to the game, meaning you won’t even need to leave the comfort of your horse before ruthlessly slashing another dragon to death. There’s no...
Bethesda and Arkane Studios’ Dickensian adventure Dishonored will seek salvation on the 9th October, when the steampunk action title arrives on PlayStation 3 in North America. Europeans will have to wait a few extra days to begin their quest for honour, with the stealth game set to sneak overseas on 12th October. You can learn more about...
Content expansion on the way
In an unexpected statement that would rival even the stealthiest of Rockstar reveals, Bethesda has announced that the first expansion pack for the brilliant The Elder Scrolls V: Skryim will be called Dawnguard. More details are expected to be shared at this year’s E3, with a summer release date hinted. Bethesda's...
The lion, the witch and the wardrobe
Gamers are an intelligent bunch. When they’re not hunting for domain name registrations or poring over employee CVs, they’re picking apart game code to find references to future content. That’s exactly what one devoted Bethesda forum poster did with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s most recent patch — and...
Hide behind the sofa
Zwei, the next project by Resisdent Evil creator Shinji Mikami, will be a “pure” survival horror title, according to a statement released by publisher Bethesda this morning. The game – which was officially announced yesterday – intends to “push the limits of fear and exhilaration”. Mikami elaborated: A true...
Bethesda announced yesterday that the promising looking Prey 2 had been delayed beyond its original 2012 release window due to development on the title not progressing at a “satisfactory” rate. Turns out the game hasn’t been worked on since November 2011, due to developer Human Head Studios trying to negotiate better contract terms...
The good with the bad
Despite a spate of rumours to the contrary, Bethesda has confirmed that it has not cancelled Prey 2. Instead the game has been delayed beyond its 2012 release date due to the title not yet meeting the publisher’s “quality standards”. We're resisting the temptation to make a snarky comment about Skyrim's state on PS3. The...
A pleasant surprise
Who knew video game marketing was so simple? In the span of a short five minute CGI trailer, publisher Bethesda’s managed to shoot Arkane Studios’ upcoming steam punk action title Dishonored straight to the top of our wishlist. The game casts you as a supernatural assassin driven by revenge. After being framed for the murder...
There are numerous minor bug fixes in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s latest software update, but the most notable improvements come in the form of new kill cameras for projectile weapons and fresh animations for melee attacks. Anyone that’s spent more than 20 hours traipsing the city of Winterhold will know how repetitive the combat in...
Pray for Prey
It seems there’s no end to the bad news today. In addition to rumours surrounding the closure of Zipper Interactive and the unfortunate announcement of Yoshinori Ono’s ill health, PSFocus.nl is reporting that Bethesda is on the verge of cancelling anticipated sequel Prey 2.
The last we heard about Bethesda’s post-release plans for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the publisher indicated that we wouldn’t be seeing any additional content for a while. But a trademark filing posted by parent company Zenimax Media has indicated that the RPG’s first expansion might be closer than we expected. The...
Despite rumours to the contrary, DOOM 4 is not cancelled. Bethesda’s VP of PR and marketing, Pete Hines, headed online to quell rumours spilling out of AllGamesBeta. He told Joystiq: DOOM 4 isn't cancelled. When we're ready to talk about it and show it off, we'll let everyone know. This is the second time DOOM 4’s...
With The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim complete – and finally functioning on PS3 – developer Bethesda’s switched its attention to a new, next-gen project. A job listing on its recruitment website states that the developer "is looking for experienced programmers to work on cutting-edge technology for an unannounced game on...
Less quantity, greater quality
Bethesda’s aiming to rein in the amount of DLC it produces for PlayStation 3 mega RPG, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, with the hope of increasing each pack’s overall quality. Speaking to Kotaku, studio gaffer Todd Howard warned that fans should not expect the same rapid-fire DLC approach employed by the team's...
Stutter no more
The PlayStation 3 version of Bethesda’s brilliant-but-broken fantasy role-playing title, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, might finally transform into a functioning product later today. The developer’s confirmed that the game’s long awaited v1.4 patch – which promises to fix a host of bugs in addition to the game’s well...
It's been a long road, but Bethesda finally appears to be on the verge of correcting many of Skyrim's biggest troubles on PlayStation 3
In a detailed patch note, the publisher has promised that the upcoming version 1.4 will bring with it "long term play optimisations for memory and performance" on the PlayStation 3. In short: the game shouldn't stutter like an out of gas car once the..
When's the best time to play a Bethesda game? Our estimate is about 12 months after release, giving the publisher ample time to fix the initial product's inevitable bugs
It's said fixes that help to make Fallout: New Vegas' upcoming "Ultimate Edition" so, well, erm, ultimate. The game was borderline unplayable at launch. It's improved since. But the Ultimate Edition is not all about..
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim should have got more love on this website than it did
We adored Bethesda's sprawling RPG, but couldn't wholly recommend it due to the slew of technical issues that the game experienced at launch. Sure, it's easy to overlook the odd frame-rate stutter or two — but Skyrim brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "technical inconsistencies". Despite the quality..
It's practically unprecedented for a game not published by EA or Activision to scoop the UK Christmas number one, but after a slew of heavy discounts and promising offers, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has broken tradition
The Bethesda published RPG toppled Just Dance 3, to finish up in first. That pushed Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 into third. The excellent FIFA 12 finished up in fourth, while..
There are ten million copies of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in the wilderness, Bethesda has confirmed
The game has netted the publisher $650 million in sales since its release last month. Hopefully the publisher can spend a bit of that money fixing up the partially broken PlayStation 3 version. We are gratified that Skyrim continues to garner high review scores and accolades around the world,..
How are you getting on with Skyrim? Assuming you've got past the horrendous technical issues -- that cause the game to lag and stutter on PlayStation 3 once your save-file reaches a certain size -- then we anticipate that you've just about managing to scratch the surface, right? Bethesda doesn't care if you've already got a quest list as long as your arm, as the publisher has started to share details about the game's forthcoming DLC
Game director Todd Howard told Joystiq that the expansion packs will be "meaty". But he clarified that, be..
"Where's your Skyrim review?" is a question we're getting asked quite a lot at the moment
The answer is that it's in limbo. Those of you that follow all the major PlayStation websites will already be aware of the game-breaking Skyrim bug, which essentially renders the PS3 version of the game unplayable. For those unaware, we'll provide a quick recap. Bethesda's latest fantasy adventure suffers from..
We have a rule: never read a novel with a map inside the front-cover
It's just not worth it. Thus if Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was a novel, we'd avoid it like the plague. Thankfully, it's a video game, and a gigantic one at that. Indeed, Skyrim is so big that it's easy to get lost. And that's where the helpful folks at GameBanshee come in. They've produced an enormous printable map of..
What has happened to Japan? Only last week Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 toppled Ni No Kuni in the region's sales charts, and now Famitsu has awarded the Western developed Skyrim a perfect score
It's the 17th game to be awarded top-marks from the publication, joining the likes of Ocarina Of Time and the original Soul Calibur.
Users on Bethesda's official forum are reporting that the promised patch for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has launched in parts of Europe
The 92MB fix is designed to solve stuttering issues that occur when players have invested a significant number of hours into the enormous open-world RPG, and initial feedback is positive. "Yeah, it fixed it," explained one jubilant poster. Bethesda's yet..
Still undecided about Bethesda's recent uber-pretty FPS, RAGE? No problem, the publisher's got your back
It's announced that it is to release a demo for the post-apocalyptic anger management sim on the PlayStation Network come December 6th. "The Ghost Clan, a cult of murderous fanatics, has infiltrated the waterworks beneath the town of Wellspring with plans to poison the water supply,"..
Terrified of your Skyrim save-file hopping over the dreaded 6MB limit? Bethesda's got your back -- but you're going to have to wait until the week after Thanksgiving first
(That's the week starting November 28th for everyone outside of North America.) According to Bethesda's Pete Hines a patch is in submission with Sony. No word on exactly what the patch contains, but we're expecting the publisher..
Bethesda employees will be donning their cosplay costumes and dancing around the office this evening, as the publisher has just announced that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has sold a whopping 3
5 million copies globally in just 48 hours. The company expects the game to rake in an eye-watering $450 million worldwide in retail sales. We are grateful for the fans response to Skyrim, said chuffed..
It wouldn't be a Bethesda game without a game-breaking bug hanging over it
PlayStation 3 owners of the publisher's mammoth role-playing game, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, have voiced concern over the game's performance hindering save file bug. In a slew posts on Bethesda's forum, players have noted that once the game crosses a certain save file size threshold (around 6MB) its performance is..
Splash Damage has announced a new update that will bring comprehensive clan, tournament and ladder support to Brink
The developer says that the update is in its final stages of testing and will release imminently on PS3. You can gorge on more specific details over at Bethesda's official website.
We're now ostensibly hours away from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
That means Bethesda's finally dropped us some good news — no more trailers. These things have been bombarding our inbox since this time last year. Seriously, how much Skyrim do people want? Oh that's right yeah, lots. Well we suppose this animation trailer should tide you over until release on Friday. Come on guys, hold it together..
If you're eager to get a taste of Bethesda's upcoming fantasy RPG behemoth, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the publisher's just let us know that it will be holding two midnight launch events in the UK

Skyrim might be right around the corner, but Bethesda's not done promoting its last big open-world RPG just yet
Bethesda's announced that it is to re-release Fallout: New Vegas next February, bundling all of the game's content packs and patches into a single Ultimate Edition. That's a lot of Fallout. The bundle's due out February 7th in North America, and February 10th in Europe.
Behind the scenes development videos always fascinate us, but nothing intrigues us more than those discussing the audio
In a new Skyrim developer diary, Bethesda has blown the doors off the sound design process. The video accompanies a new podcast and blog post, outlining the process in a little more detail. You can find more information on Bethesda's official website.
Dragons are a bloody nuisance aren't they? You've just got your village how you'd like it and suddenly, boom
Gone in a jiffy. At least there will always be mute protagonists wearing spiffing armour to save the day. As is the case in this breath-taking live-action Skyrim trailer. Top-notch stuff.
Bethesda has emphatically denied reports that development on Doom 4 has been suspended, labelling the rumours as "complete bollocks"
Responding to a series of Twitter queries regarding the matter, marketing gaffer Pete Hines explained, "Games are done when they are done and no title under development at id has been postponed - indefinitely or otherwise." We suspect that's the end of that,..
Rumours are flying that Bethesda has temporarily postponed development of Doom 4 after the recently released RAGE didn't meet expectations. Apparently parent company Zenimax has "a serious lack of confidence in the project management at id," following the technical issues and luke-warm reviews surrounding RAGE. We thought the game was above average in our review, but struggled to..
Worried you're going to have to set aside hundreds of hours in order to complete The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim? There's hope for you
Sort of. Bethesda's announced that Sam Bernstein, a member of the publisher's quality assurance team, has finished the game in over two hours, beating level designer Jeff Browne's time. Bernstein was previously recognised for competing against Bethesda employees in a..
Such is the furore surrounding Bethesda's upcoming colossal RPG, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, that someone has took it upon themselves to leak the game
.. 's instruction manual. That's right, the entire manual has been uploaded onto Imgur. We've decided against re-producing it here for obvious reasons, but we will include a friendly link for you. The manual includes a variety of morsels, including..
Pre-order a copy of RAGE ahead of its October 7th release date and you'll have your copy automatically upgraded to the Anarchy Edition
This extended version of the game adds four additional items to your arsenal, including a Double Barrel Shotgun, Crimson Elite Armour, Fists Of Rage knuckle-dusters, and a Rat Rod Buggy. Hit the jump to see the goods in action.
Bethesda's dropped us a line to remind you that the final two Fallout: New Vegas DLC packs are due out this week on the PlayStation Store
That's today in North America, and tomorrow in Europe. Courier's Stash (£1.49 / $2.99) opens up access to four content bundles previously available only through pre-orders. The Caravan Pack, Classic Pack, Mercenary Pack and Tribal Pack each offer unique weapons,..
Bethesda's announced the cast list for its highly anticipated fantasy RPG The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

The PlayStation 3 version of RAGE will come packed up on a single Blu-ray disc (unlike the XBOX 360's enormous three-disc solution) and will require an 8GB install, id Software's creative director Tim Willits told Eurogamer
"Sony was great," Willits praised. "Kudos to Sony for letting us do that. They don't allow every game to do that. So definitely, hats off. What we were able to..
Think you can fit in upwards of 100 hours of gaming before Skyrim launches later in the year? The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion 5th Anniversary Edition might fit the bill
The special package — which includes the game, DLC packs, two world maps and a 'Making Of' documentary — is due out on PS3 this week in Europe. It'll run you a reasonable £19.99. Still no trophies, mind.
It's fitting that a game that will take you about 100 hours to play through should get a trailer of similarly silly length
Bethesda's released a brand new gameplay blow-out for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and it's a mere 20-minutes in length. The footage is narrated by Todd Howard and is based on the same stretch of gameplay that the publisher showed at E3 earlier in the year. Catch all three..
An exclusive should stay an exclusive as far as we're concerned
Microsoft disagrees. In a move that's becoming all too familiar, the XBOX 360 platform holder has signed up for timed exclusivity on The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's first two DLC packs. The content will be available "exclusively" on Microsoft's platform for a period of 30 days, before appearing on PlayStation Network..
Bethesda's announced that the fourth expansion of Fallout: New Vegas, the Lonesome Road, will be available from the PlayStation Network on September 20th
The single-player expansion will run you $9.99. The expansion won't mark the end of Fallout: New Vegas DLC however. It will be followed by two additional slices of content, Couriers Stash and Gun...
Bethesda and Arkane's new intuitive stealth-action title Dishonored becomes a little less shrouded in mystery
The upcoming title's official site has been updated with an official plot and some spicy new screens featuring futuristic cars and, uh, mustachioed assailants. Dishonored is under development at Arkane studios under the watchful eye of Harvey Smith of Deus Ex fame. The title is still on..
Eurogamer has a useful tidbit regarding in-world relationships in Bethesda's upcoming open-world RPG, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Deriving information from Bethesda marketing exec Peter Hines, Bethesda has seemingly included the option to befriend and marry non-player characters of either gender, forming lasting benefits for the player to earn over the game. Companion NPC's might ask a favor of you..
