Bethesda upcoming games
A Fallout 4 player has apparently decided to give players a early taste of what he believes it will be like to be in Fallout 76 with a new Fallout 76 mod, which takes place in the Fallout 4 map and will include NPCs that will harass you as you go on your adventure. While it won’t bring in human players to the game, the NPCs that are added in the Fallout 76 mod will still follow you around and try to kill you at every opportunity in order to prevent you from getting to your destination or succeed in your objective. This is intended to mimic the experience that many expect Fallout 76 to be like, since that game will be primarily multiplayer focused with no central story. Bethesda has said that the game won’t allow griefing in any significant capacity, as in order for PVP to become available you have to respond to a challenge from a player in some way. And if you do die to another player, you’ll respawn far away from them, preventing them from constantly killing you as … [Read more...] about Fallout 76 Mod For Fallout 4 Gives Players A Sneak Peak Of Upcoming Game
Bethesda tweeted an image of Big Ben today, the hands of the famous clock painted pink and leaving a bright smear as they travel across the face. What does it mean?Well, let's talk about the possibilities. The pink certainly could be a reference to Rage 2: just yesterday, after Walmart potentially spoiled a bunch of E3 game announcements by posting a list of upcoming games, Rage's twitter posted a correction in bright pink, which is most likely confirmation that Rage 2 is on the way. Is London the setting of Rage 2?The clock's pink hands are poised at 5:14, which might translate to a date: May 15. That's this coming Monday, so this tweet could be a pre-announcement to an upcoming announcement. Maybe we'll get a trailer for Rage 2 on Monday?So, our money is on a Rage 2 announcement, but what else could it mean? A new game set in London? An old series (Fallout) set in London? Skyrim will be playable on Apple Watch? It's time for more Brink?If you've got better theories, let us know. … [Read more...] about What is Bethesda teasing with this image of Big Ben?
There are good and bad ways to respond to a leak, and it looks as if Bethesda has decided to take the higher route with its public response to Walmart’s listing of what might be one of its upcoming games. Rage was a first-person shooter from id Software that came out in 2011 to middling reviews, and led to John Carmack apologizing for the game in a 2012 QuakeCon keynote. That seemed to be the end of Rage’s story, until Walmart Canada posted a listing for Rage 2, which is not yet officially announced. The official Rage Twitter account later tweeted the following image: Seriously, Walmart. At least put some effort into your placeholder listings. This joke is pretty light and fluffy as these things go, but does anyone else notice what it doesn’t include? A denial. Publishers tend not to comment on this sort of thing, because announcements are carefully timed for maximum impact so they don’t want to confirm the game is coming right now, but they also don’t … [Read more...] about Bethesda responds to apparent Rage 2 leak in best way possible
