Today we see another release from the teams responsible for presenting the 2014 release of Wolfenstein - a new vision of the original first-person-shooter Nazi-killer. Bethesda Softworks have some high-fidelity graphic designers and advertising magicians on their side, that much is certain. Here you’re going red and white once again, dancing to Die Partei Damen (the party girls) mix of Nowhere to Run while you see a massacre.
It’s now been made clear that the game Wolfenstein: The New Order will not only be a worldwide launch of a game, but a simultaneous worldwide launch as well. In North America, Europe, and Australia too, you’ll find this game releasing on May 20th, 2014. Also pushed today was the first gameplay trailer - right off the bat and we’re already in the game - and it looks terrifying.
Today the next generation of DOOM has been brought on in Beta form. This game will be released first with boxed copies of the game Wolfenstein: The New Order. In other words - just so long as you’re getting your OG gaming fix on in one form, you’ll be invited to jump in on the other.
Bethesda's oft-leaked and much-anticipated upcoming Elder Scrolls Online will be kinder to PlayStation 4 than Xbox One gamers, at least as far as subscription requirements are concerned. Today in a PlayStation blog post, ZeniMax Online Studios put concerns at ease, saying a PlayStation Plus subscription won't be required to play. Xbox One gamers aren't so lucky, however, according to a statement from Bethesda.
Earlier this week, a Fallout 4 teaser website surfaced, only to soon after be revealed as a hoax. Upon that foundation of disappointment comes a ray of hope, however: documents have leaked showing the game is both real and being developed at this moment, and by all accounts it seems it will be set in Boston. Casting documents for the project, codenamed Institute, have been confirmed as real.
Nintendo shouldn't hope for any Wii U love from games publisher Bethesda, with the company blaming hardware limitations for its decision not to include the console on its roadmap. "In our near term focus it's not on our radar" Bethesda VP of PR and marketing Pete Hines told Joystiq recently, describing the decision as "largely a hardware thing."
The latest in the Elder Scrolls series of video games from Bethesda, dubbed Skyrim, has been ported over to the new Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. YouTube user Chris Gallizzi uploaded a two-minute-long video demoing how the game works with the new Kickstarter-funded VR goggles, and also provided a bit of details along the way.
With the release of the first teaser for "The Evil Within", we're seeing what could very well be the biggest contender for the Resident Evil collection of monster-filled games in the history of video games. If Bethesda aimed to show their prowess with a vision of barely-visible bits and pieces, they've done so here with flying colors. The developers teased this title earlier this week with a miniature Vine video as well.
Bethesda is working on a new game apparently, but no one is sure on what exactly they're working on, even after the developer released a 4-second Vine clip teasing the new game. The clip features barbed wire, an LP spinning, and sheet music of "Air of the G-string" by Bach. What could all of this mean?
