Try your very best to conceal the shock and surprise that you don’t have – but Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls MMO is dropping its subscription fees. It took a little longer than we’d expected (we gave it six months), it’s finally happened – you’ll no longer have to pay a monthly fee to kill things and carry out fetch quests in Tamriel.
There are 12 brand new games being shown off at tomorrow’s The Game Awards. For a while now, rumours have circulated that one of the new titles being shown off at the VGA’s reborn would be Bethesda’s next Fallout game. I certainly hope you don’t have your hopes up – because that’s just not happening.
What’s the one game that would get your engine roaring? The one game that would make your jaded outlook on life a tad bit sunnier? For me, that would be a Ninja Theory developed sequel to DmC: Devil May Cry. For a lot of other people who aren’t chucking rocks at me right now, that would be a new Fallout. Fallout 3 was one of the defining games in the last generation of consoles and PC, a benchmark-setting triumph. A sequel will most likely be made one day, but it most likely won’t be titled Shadow Of Boston.
It’s very easy to get confused by all the multiplayer-only titles racing to launch lately. It’s even easier when there are two games that sound almost the same. Battlecry and Battleborn are two that I constantly confuse, but thankfully they’re starting to look more distinct now. Or at least Battlecry’s violent steampunk sword gameplay is standing out the most.
The Evil Within was a pretty good game. It didn't blow me away, but it certainly offered some fun gameplay at times. If you're still curious but don't want to commit to spending the money, Bethesda has you covered... on PC.
Every generation of gaming has that one title that has been stuck in development hell for far, far too long. Games such as Duke Nukem Forever, Daikatana and Team Fortress 2 for a few examples. One other game that was seemingly going nowhere? Prey 2, a sequel to the cult classic topsy-turvy Human Head developed shooter. Details on that game have been rarer than hen’s teeth. But the latest info is overwhelmingly clear: The game is dead.
Right, in case you’ve forgotten, we’re giving away a decidedly terrifying hamper including a copy of The Evil Within, and a wealth of associated goodies – like the coolest bottle opener on the planet. We forgot to do the draw last week, because we were too busy being lazy jerks. Here then, is the winner of the hamper.
Last week, we gave away a copy of Alien Isolation – but just one scary game is not enough, so we’re giving away another. Here’s your chance to win a copy of The Evil Within the new game from the demented mind that brought you Resident Evil.
The Evil Within is out, and unfortunately for PC gamers, is locked to 30fps like it is on the console versions. That’s ok though right? Bethesda’s given you some debugging options that’ll allow you to run the game the way it’s mean to on a pc; with a gloriously unlocked frame rate, right? Weeellll no. While the option exists, you’re going to have to duct-tape seventeen Nvidia Titans together to get it to run at 1080p at a constant, buttery smooth 60fps.
There is a lot of be afraid of in The Evil Within. In general, I'm less afraid when I can actually see the baddies that I need to kill - those environments are absolutely terrifying for me, though. Here is a trailer showing off all the horror as the game launches.
True survival horror games have been dead for a long time. But much like the unkillable antagonists of your favourite slasher flicks, the genre is once again rising from the dead. Amongst the new generation of such titles on the way, is The Evil Within. It’s a psychological attack mixed with pants-staining thrills and chills. So what’s it actually all about then?
The Evil Within is coming and it's bringing nightmare fuel. I should get to play the game soon, and I'm worried that in my quest to review it I'll start waking up at night, screaming. Here are some of the things that are going to terrify you when you delve into the bizarre world of The Evil Within.
I remember being terrified playing Resident Evil 2, and I have a feeling that The Evil Within will make me scream like the little girl that I used to be. This trailer is already quite terrifying for me - how on earth am I going to survive the whole game?
Just a week ago Bethesda revealed the required PC specs you’d need to get The Evil Within running in all its gory glory. They were pretty damned demanding, to say the least. What if you just wanted your annual dose of horror with a little less detail and a more stable frame rate? Well, then your PC will need to be at least this high to ride.
People love to be proud of their rigs - it's a thing to brag about your graphics card and RAM and all the rest. However, not everyone has the top of the range equipment. Unfortunately for them, they probably won't be able to play the latest and greatest horror title to be released.
