Some news from Bethesda today. The headline of their news release says they've "expanded" into Austin, however, all is not as it seems.
What is now Bethesda Games Studios Austin was yesterday known as "Battlecry Studios", a subsidary of Zenimax Media LLC. For those of you who need a refresher on the Zenimax empire, Zenimax owns publisher Bethesda Softworks, who in turn owns Bethesda Games Studios. So rather than a new studio, this is more than a rebranding.
Battlecry Studios had failed to produce anything of note. It was founded in 2012 initially to work on Freemium and microtransaction games. Its flagship game was also to be known as BattleCry, but rather than release games Battlecry has merely released staff to the unemployment line. So this rebrand is probably part of a major change of direction for the studio, and I'd expect to see BattleCry join the big "Cancelled Games" junkyard.
Bethesda Games Studios Austin will be headed by Doug Mellencamp, who judging from his Linkedin profile …

Its the Mooooost wonderful time of the year. Well, in June it it will be at least, the Bethesda E3 Showcase is here again. Here’s the announcement trailer.
The Trailer doesn’t tell us much, except perhaps that Bethesda have spent far too much time doing arts and crafts. But some of the figures definitely look fallouty.
The streamline this year is “Creating something special”, which suggests some sort of major announcement, and Bethesda has expanded to 2 Bethesda-branded studios (Rockville and Montreal). We’re not expecting new Fallout (its not our turn), and last year Todd did say there were other large projects they were working on before TES6, and has said that these are “bigger than anything we’ve ever done” and “something different”… and have been looking for experts on "Freemium" games for an AAA title in Montreal... So could this be the start of something new?
What do you think it is?
We have tried to send in some Canadian spy into their Montreal offices, but apparently corporat…

It's less than a week until the Bethesda E3 Showcase. This will be Bethesda's third ever E3 briefing. So what can we expect? What do we know? And why do we care?
Bethesda has always loved dropping major hints on us fans regarding their future game announcements. And of course they had to keep the tradition going this year too! This year the press invitation featured a cartoon image of a theme park titled "Bethesdaland." The theme park feautures many different zones based on various Bethesda games like Fallout, Doom, Prey, etc. Two areas however are listed as "coming soon" and "under construction."
Earlier this year Todd Howard hinted that they have 3 major projects on their agenda. The cartoon image suggests that 2 of these major projects will be announced at the event. But most people are interested in what the third project may be. If we are to use the cartoon image as a reference, then that means that the third project won't be announced this year. So what is the third major project? …

1 year ago, work started on Fallout Cascadia, what seems to become one of the most promising Fallout 4 mods. So far, a lot of progress has already been achieved (see anniversary trailer below). Fallout Cascadia is planned to deliver nearly eighty square kilometers of land centered around Seattle proper. It will contain several large settlements such as the capital of the Republic of Cascadia, Cascade. Fallout Cascadia takes places decades after previous Fallout games, in the year 2329.
Sadly, under the current console mod restrictions, it will only come out for pc. If the mod resitrictions for consoles would be softened up in the future however, consoles may still get the mod as well.

Bethesda have just released an email advertising that Fallout 4 will be free to play this weekend (25th-28th May) only. For anyone who has a steam account or Xbox Gold, now would be a good time to have a play around and pick the game and its downloadable content up for up to 67% off.
Update 05/26/2017: I have now seen the Steam offer and can confirm that Fallout 4 is 67% off and the Season pass has been reduced to 40%. Individual DLC packs have not been reduced and remain at full retail price. If I get confirmation of the Xbox prices I will update these as well.
Update 05/27/2017: Apologies for the comments being disabled, not sure how/why that happened, but they are now open again.Read more >
