At E3 last June, Bethesda dropped multiple bombshells, many of which still have to actually land in players’ hands. One of the most anticipated but also most doubted of the pack is Fallout 76, an online survival version of the widely popular franchise.

Fallout 76 cross-play bad news is all Sony’s fault says Bethesda director

Cross-platform play is something that's on the minds of a lot of gamers at the moment, and Sony has been getting a lot of negative attention because of it.

Last night, Bethesda poked fun at its penchant for porting Skyrim to any platform that will play it by announcing "Skyrim: Very Special Edition" for Alexa.

As it turns out, however, it wasn't a spoof, and Skyrim: Very Special Edition is an Alexa game that actually exists.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades is an ambitious mobile game that goes beyond mobile

Mobile gaming is crazy big these days. Just look at the number of companies scrambling to make the perfect gaming phone. But the mobile gaming experience isn’t always what it cracked up to be, save for a few standout titles. Naturally, big gaming studios like Bethesda wants in on that market, and, so far, its free-to-play Fallout Shelter has been rather successful. But at E3 2018, famed game designer Todd Howard dropped a bombshell of a reveal. They’re making a new mobile game, The Elder Scrolls: Blades, and it’s not going to be like any mobile game you’ve seen.

Fallout 76 confirmed as an online game, out later this year

We knew that Fallout 76 was going to be the main attraction at Bethesda's E3 press conference, and the company certainly didn't disappoint in that regard. Bethesda's Todd Howard took the stage to talk at length about Fallout 76 tonight, and in doing so, he gave us a much better idea of what to expect from the game.
