Bethesda working on two Larger, one smaller project
By Agent c

In news that will certainly fit in the "Water is Wet" category, Some site called Glixel (apparently they're related to Rolling Stone Magazine) is reporting that Bethesda are indeed still in the video game industry, which will certainly be of interest for those whom had worried that they'd instead moved into the Agriculture industry.

Partial victory for Zenimax in Oculus case
By Agent c

Ars Technica is reporting that Zenimax has had a partial victory in their court case against Oculus (and therefore Facebook)... Zenimax won't be crying too hard over the "partial" part, they're still taking home the grand prize of $500 Million. Why do we care? Well this case is probably the reason why Bethesda announced Fallout 4 VR for the HTC Vive, and not the Oculus.

Pillars of Eternity II Deadfire Campaign Launch Trailer

Eothas has returned. The god of light and rebirth was thought dead, but he now inhabits the stone titan that sat buried under your keep, Caed Nua, for millennia. Ripping his way out of the ground, he destroyed your stronghold and left you at the brink of death. To save your soul, you must track down the wayward god and demand answers - answers which could throw mortals and the gods themselves into chaos.

PS4 Mods ImminentEdit

Find out which mods will be available on PS4
By Agent c

Since Bethesda was able to reach a settlement with Sony over what mods would be permitted on the Playstation 4 Platform, we've been wondering what mods exactly we'll be able to experience given that Sony isn't allowing for new assets to be created.

Wonder no more. With Fallout 4 mods expected in the next software update, Bethesda have updated their website to allow you to see exactly which mods are PS4 Compatible.

Are you pleasantly surprised, or disappointed by the list? Let us know in the comments.

PS4 mods are coming, so is 4KEdit

PS4 mods and 4K is coming
By Paladin117

Some news from Bethesda. They are releasing mods for Fallout 4 and Skyrim Special Edition afterall. They are also adding in support for the PlayStation 4 Pro while they're at it. There are two catches however. First, Fallout 4 mods are coming after Skyrim's release, which will include mods at launch. Second, you can not use any external assets with PS4 mods, only the game's native assets. So, no new 3D models or textures are coming.

Wasteland 3Edit

Wasteland 3
By Agent_c

Some big news from InXile. Wasteland, the series that lead to the development of Fallout will be getting a third instalment.

Much like the second instalment and other InXile productions, Wasteland 3 will be crowdfunded to begin with, however this time there's the promise of more - the possibility to get more than just rewards, but a possible share of the profits.

The planned ask this time is $2.75 Million, you may remember Wasteland 2 raised in total just under $3 Million so the goal is ambitious.

We'll know more October 5th, when the title is officially announced 8am Pacific (11am EST, 5pm CET).

Mods are not coming to PS4 (for now)
By Agent_c

Bethesda has released the following statement on PS4 mods today

After months of discussion with Sony, we regret to say that while we have long been ready to offer mod support on PlayStation 4, Sony has informed us they will not approve user mods the way they should work: where users can do anything they want for either Fallout 4 or Skyrim Special Edition.

Like you, we are disappointed by Sony’s decision given the considerable time and effort we have put into this project, and the amount of time our fans have waited for mod support to arrive. We consider this an important initiative and we hope to find other ways user mods can be available for our PlayStation audience. However, until Sony will allow us to offer proper mod support for PS4, that content for Fallout 4 and Skyrim on PlayStation 4 will not be available.

We will provide an update if and when this situation changes.

Statement

It seems that this is the closed book on PS4 mods for now, the problem being down to Sony wanting to control, or exclude certain content rather than any technical issue.

This also appears to close the book on Skyrim Special edition, and I would not be suprised if this will effect Bethesda's consideration of which formats Fallout 4 VR might appear on.

OculusEdit

Zenimax v Oculus, Facebook and John Carmack
By Agent_c

Some suprising news is emerging from the court case brought by Zenimax against Occulus. They’ve expanded their case so its not just targeted at the arm of Facebook, but they’re also suing the founder of Oculus (Palmer Luckey), their CEO (Brendan Iribe) and former head of ID and former Zenimax employee John Carmack, accusing the latter of being a thief.

At this point you might be thinking what does that have to do with Bethesda? Well, you might remember back at the BE3 conference Fallout 4 VR and Doom VR were announced for the HTC Vive, rather than Oculus. This lawsuit is why - Bethesda is a Zenimax company. But that still make you wonder what Zenimax have to do with the development of the Oculus, and why they’re suing. Well, according to Zenimax’s submission, the short answer is: everything.

New Proving a point about the hoax
By Agent_c

A common complaint about the Fallout New Orleans hoax are claims that the applicant "must" have paid for the registration - and paid a lot.

So we set ourselves a challenge. Could we replicate the results of this troll without paying a cent?

You might see some rumours around the internet claiming that Bethesda have registered a trademark in Europe.

And indeed, if you search the EU trademark database, you'll find this:


Looks real doesn't it? How could it possibly be a fake if its on the trademark database?

Easily.

NewsPipBoyBluetooth

Good News Vault Dwellers. No longer do you have to subject yourself to perfectly safe scientific experiments in order to have a pip boy of your own.

For a mere $350 you can get the new deluxe version of the PipBoy 3000, unlike the Fallout 4 pack in all the dials and switches work, and there is no place to insert your cellphone - instead the connection to your phone is done through Bluetooth - Why have an Apple Watch when you can have the much more stylish PipBoy 3000.

Like all good fallout items, you'll find it on the Bethstore.

Template documentation (for the template shown above, sometimes hidden or invisible)

This page is the "Archive" page for the headline section of the Live news Page.

For the Headline section only the MOST RECENT story should be in the transcluded section - it wont break if you include two, but the second really should be added to the most relevant non headline section instead.

It is recommended that old headlines be left here for archive purposes.

USING THIS PAGEEdit

OrganisationEdit

Firstly, you should use a H2 headline before your article, just for organisational purposes.

If for some reason you've decided to ignore the advice to use only one article at a time, you should surround the headline with "NoInclude" tags to stop it being pulled through the transclusion.

Eg:

<noinclude> ==Headline== </noinclude>

Pulling an articleEdit

This presumes you're pulling only a single article, as recommended. If you're trying to pull multiple ones, leave off the <section end="LiveNewsPage" /> until the end of the last article, and do not place a second <section begin="LiveNewsPage" /> tag.

Headline onlyEdit

This version only presents the Green Headline.
