Players buying Switch to play DOOM, Skyrim
Players buying Switch to play DOOM, Skyrim
Despite mostly skipping the Wii and Wii U, Bethesda has been one of the most supportive third-party developers on Switch. With games like Skyrim, DOOM, Wolfenstein II all on the system, the company's relationship with Nintendo has never been better. As you might expect, the partnership appea
Bethesda's been one of the top third-party supporters for the Switch, releasing games like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and DOOM on the hybrid system. It followed this up with other titles like Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and even a port of the mobile game, Fallout Shelter. While many fans of the co
Zion chats with Matt Carofano from Bethesda
The Elder Scrolls is a colossal series with a following of passionate fans for each of its multiple entries. We've seen the seminal Skyrim come to Switch already, but now The Elder Scrolls: Blades is scheduled to arrive on Nintendo's console. While the former was a fully-fledged open-world epic, this new...
Deluxe Edition is confirmed, though
Update: It doesn't look like Switch owners will be getting the fancy Collector's Edition of the game, which comes with a frickin' Doom Guy helmet you can actually wear on your bonce. Boo. Original Story: This just in: DOOM Eternal will be released on the Switch on 22nd November. The game's Creative Director Hugo...
And it's free!
To kick-off its 2019 E3 press conference, Bethesda announced the free-to-play mobile title The Elder Scrolls: Blades would be coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year. This version will also be free and will include motion controls, cross-play and cross-progression support - meaning you can swap between the Switch and mobile...
The Slayers Club
If you cast your mind back to December of last year, you may remember the grand unveiling of the Slayers Club, a rewards program launched to celebrate DOOM's 25th anniversary. In case you didn't sign up on day one, Bethesda has provided a fresh write up of how everything works and what you can receive by joining the fun. Once...
Challenges with the technology
Last August, around the time of QuakeCon, id Software Studio Director Tim Willits said Rage 2 was being considered for the Switch. In February this year, Willits provided an update, explaining how id and Bethesda were "still investigating" a potential Switch rele
"It’s going to be a hell of a night"
After EA announced its press conference would be replaced by multiple live streams at E3 2019, a number of other publishers have been encouraged to reveal their own plans. Bethesda is the latest one, confirming it will be returning to E3 this year to host its annual video game showcase. Here's the rundown from...
Switching it up?
Last year, it was revealed DOOM Eternal – developed by id Software and published by Bethesda – would be released on the Switch in 2019. Not long after this, it was confirmed port specialist Panic Button would be handling the Nintendo release. In an interview around the same time with Variety, id Software studio director Tim...
It’s probably DOOM
Last year, Bethesda announced DOOM Eternal would be coming to the Nintendo Switch at QuakeCon. Once again, the studio handling the Switch port will be the specialists at Panic Button. The hellish soundtrack for the game is being handled by the returning composer Mick Gordon. In what is quite possibly related news, Gordon is...
Official statement released today
You may remember that in June last year, Bethesda filed a lawsuit against Behaviour Interactive and Warner Bros. over the new Westworld mobile game. Over half a year later, Bethesda and Behaviour Interactive have now stated that the lawsuit has been "amicably resolved". Originally, Bethesda argued that Behaviour...
Including a special skin for DOOM Eternal
The first entry in the DOOM series launched on this very day 25 years ago on 10th December 1993, and Bethesda is celebrating the anniversary in style with a new video and a year's worth of exclusive goodies for fans, all wrapped up inside a new Slayers Club program. The video (which you can watch above)...
Until the Switch came along
Not long ago, Bethesda held a panel at PAX Australia 2018 discussing its games and even speaking about relations with certain other companies. At the time, Bethesda's Marketing Executive Pete Hines said Fallout 76 wouldn't be coming to the Switch and it was also briefly mentioned how the MMO
It can't be done
Bethesda has been one of Nintendo's biggest third-party supporters during the Switch generation so far, but unfortunately, its latest release - Fallout 76 - won't be coming to the hybrid system. At a PAX Australia panel yesterday, Bethesda's Marketing Executive Pete Hines said the multiplayer Fallout game would not be released on...
"It is one of the largest games ever made"
Bethesda has done a fantastic job supporting the Switch since it was released. So far, the company has been able to bring across multiple big-name titles - all of which have been positively received. As you might recall, the first of the lot was The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in 2017. The game's success led...
"Console modding has often been sort of shady"
A large part of the Skyrim experience on other platforms centres around its Creation Club feature; also supported by Fallout 4, it acts as a way to enhance your gaming with a whole variety of mods and extra content available at the click of a button. The feature was created by the game's developer and...
"We all have to see how it ends"
Bethesda has shown great support for the Switch since it was released, bringing key series like Elder Scrolls and Doom to the hybrid platform. During an interview with IGN last month, Bethesda's senior vice president of global marketing and communications Pete Hines said the demand for the publisher's IP on the...
Doomguy in Smash?
Just a couple of years ago, the very thought of any major Bethesda title appearing on a Nintendo platform was practically impossible, with all of the studio's hugely popular hits releasing exclusively on more powerful, rival consoles. With the Switch, however, times have changed, and the relationship between Bethesda and Nintendo...
Bethesda's Pete Hines provides response
This year's QuakeCon revealed Bethesda and id Software would be bringing DOOM Eternal to the Nintendo Switch, with the help of port specialist Panic Button. As fantastic as the announcement was, unsurprisingly it left fans of id's work wanting more. Tim Willits, id Software studio director, then...
Strong support will continue
There's no hiding the fact Bethesda are big fans of the Nintendo Switch. Since the launch of the system, we've seen the company release Skyrim and bring across DOOM and Wolfenstein as well. In an
“We stream everything, and we’re just looking”
This year’s QuakeCon revealed DOOM Eternal - developed by id Software and published by Bethesda - would be coming to the Switch in the near future, with port specialist Panic Button officially handling the Nintendo version of the game. During an interview with
"Right now we're doing nothing"
It seems extremely unlikely that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will ever receive the Creation Club feature on Switch, despite it being present on other consoles. The Creation Club feature, which was first introduced into Fallout 4 before making its way to Skyrim, essentially allows players to access mods for the...
How will things unfold?
Just last week we reported on the news that Bethesda had filed a lawsuit against Warner Bros. and Behaviour Interactive over the new Westworld mobile game. The studio claimed that the game uses code that was originally created for Fallout Shelter, and there seemed to be some pretty fishy evidence to back...
New Westworld mobile game looks suspicious...
Fallout series developer and publisher Bethesda is reportedly suing Warner Bros. and Behaviour Interactive over the new Westworld mobile game, claiming it uses code originally created for Fallout Shelter. Fallout Shelter is a free-to-play game which recently arrived on Nintendo Switch, tasking...
A bundle of joy
In the short timeframe Nintendo Switch has existed, Bethesda has shown an incredible amount of support for the system. It’s already brought across two of its most iconic franchises in the first year, with another one – Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus – expected to arrive in 2018. If you’re eagerly anticipating...
Lots of noise has been made about third party support on the Switch, with many claiming that this is finally the generation that Nintendo reobtains the trust of major third-party publishers and starts getting big hitter releases alongside other consoles. While the jury is still out on how this is going to pan out, Bethesda is one...
Pinball FX3 gets 3 new tables today
Here's something we didn't imagine would happen - you can now play DOOM in pinball form on Pinball FX3 for Nintendo Switch! Zen Studios has worked out the rights with Bethesda to bring three new tables to Pinball FX3 in one lovely bundle. This action-packed trio is comprised of tables inspired...
Prepare for "Nintendoom"
Nintendo's critics have been saying that the Japanese company is on the rocks for years, and the term "Nintendoomed" is often lazily rolled out whenever the firm hits a bumpy patch in the road. The diminishing handheld market and the dismal Wii U era saw the phrase get used on several occasions, but since the success...
"It’s not as if we’re going to just do these two games"
The news that Bethesda is bringing DOOM and Wolfenstein 2 to Switch certainly caused some shockwaves in the Nintendo community. You might assume that along with Skyrim, Bethesda is still in the process of testing the waters on Switch, but according to Bethesda boss Pete Hines this trio of...
It's time to rewrite history
Bethesda has revealed during today's Nintendo Direct that it is bringing Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus to the Nintendo Switch. The FPS - which is the sequel to the rebooted Wolfenstein - places you in the boots of William "B.J." Blazkowicz as he attempts to trigger a second American revolution in an alternate...
Better than an arrow to the knee
Hail and well met, travelers! Come, rest your weary feat at our fire as we regale you with stories of our time spent in the world of Skyrim! You maybe be inclined to ask, “but noble bard, wasn’t Skyrim released over half a decade ago?”, and you wouldn’t be too far off - but this, dear friends, is Skyrim on...
It goes without saying at this point but The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is not a new game by any stretch of the word. The original release came out back in 2011, and the game only recently re-entered headlines when Skyrim: Special Edition saw a release this past fall. When it was announced that Skyrim would be coming to Switch, many assumed...
"I love it. We're definitely going to be supporting it"
The amazing response to the reveal of the Nintendo Switch has been tempered slightly by the fact that Nintendo is clearly keeping its cards close to its chest - as well as apparently making sure that all development and publishing partners are locked down with NDAs. This hasn't stopped a...
"We talk to Nintendo all the time"
Bethesda isn't readily associated with Nintendo hardware - it's a widely admired developer and publisher that's devoted its efforts to Sony / Microsoft hardware in addition to PC. Yet whenever new Nintendo hardware is around the corner there's naturally the question over whether third-parties like this - with...
It's not all Doom and gloom
Major game publishers are starting to show off their games ahead of E3 opening its doors, with Bethesda getting in on the act. A company renowned for its complex RPG titles in addition to its flashier action-based releases, we expect a mix of titles - rumours and leaks point to Dishonored 2 being shown, while a remaster...
A surprise from E3 2015 you may not have expected
In case you missed it, this year Bethesda Softworks hosted its very own E3 press conference for the first time ever. As expected, the company teased the new DOOM, Dishonored 2 and their most cherished creation, Fallout 4. During one of the many Fallout 4 segments, the company revealed the latest...
Not ruling out future releases, though
Bethesda has never really been associated with Nintendo. The developer behind the Elder Scrolls and Fallout series can mostly be found making games for PC and other consoles and it seems likely it will stay that way for the foreseeable future. In an interview with Eurogamer, Peter Hines, Vice President of PR...
It's coming to "all" next-gen and current-gen consoles, but not Wii U
Wolfenstein: The New Order, Bethesda's upcoming title, was being shown off at E3 and we finally got some clarification on what consoles it will be appearing on. Well, sort of. In an interview with Got Games, Thomas Björk of MachineGames, the developer behind the first person...
A long road ahead, though
Wii owners missed out on a huge number of high-profile high definition games, but with Wii U around the corner everybody's hoping history won't repeat itself and the console will see the same kind of experience that are available on other formats. One such game many Nintendo fans would love to play is The Elder Scrolls V:...
Another gaming revolution from Archer Maclean?
Wheelspin is an unashamedly old-school arcade racer, with exaggerated physics, rollercoaster-style tracks and an emphasis on enormous speed. Its influences are clear - F-Zero and San Francisco Rush 2049 are the strongest - but sadly Wheelspin never feels more than the sum of its parts. The single-player campaign asks you to fulfill certain objectives..
Known by two different names, and it's already out in America!
Hey - remember that really big Wii game Sean Brennan, managing director of Bethesda Europe, mentioned back in May? No? Well anyway, it's recently been revealed as a racing game developed by Awesome Play. Called Wheelspin (Speed Zone in America, and that version is published by Deten8 games) features a variety of tracks set in the future..
