The Outer Worlds hands-on: The best RPG Bethesda never made

Dan McPhee, The Outer Worlds' Narrative Designer, explains why Obsidian decided to point the spotlight on consumer culture for this particular space western adventure. That scrappy, absurdist aura of comedy bleeds into The Outer Worlds' gameplay, too, especially with regards to its character progression system, made up primarily by Obsidian’s familiar system of perks and flaws. In that sense, The Outer Worlds is shaping up to be a distinctly Obsidian RPG in all the right ways, with all the chara

Starfield space travel is “like flight in the ’40s, it’s dangerous” says Todd Howard

In particular, as our friends at PC Gamer reported, Howard discussed how space travel works in Starfield - and how perilous it can be. "Traveling in space in our game, I want to say it's like flight in the '40s, like it's dangerous," Howard said. But while the risks of space travel in Starfield are comparable to early flight, Howard also stressed that the game is set in the far future. Howard also said "we have to gamify it some so that it's not as punishing as actual space travel." We still don

How to win Fallout 76 Nuclear Winter battle royale? Bethesda says you’re forgetting something

Fallout 76 has a brand new Nuclear Winter battle royale mode, and it's live right now. So one thing I don’t think many people have really caught onto yet is that you can take your blueprints that you’ve created in Adventure Mode and actually use them in Nuclear Winter. You could create some very specific blueprints that you think would be really good for fortification. Before Nuclear Winter, you go into Adventure Mode and build those things out. You save them, and you go into Nuclear Winter.

Fallout 76 had to survive, and it’s only going to get more wild

Bethesda’s E3 presentation had to mention Fallout 76, after its rocky November launch and the struggles to reorient it over the following months. Bethesda has been quietly improving Fallout 76 since launch, adding new enemies, content, quests, and items on a regular basis. That means Fallout 76 is going to be the face of Fallout for the foreseeable future. It’s all grist for Fallout 76, now that the floodgates seem to be open. Fallout 76 has never been subtle, and I think we can only expect the

Bethesda’s E3 2019 schedule, start time, and how to stream

Bethesda kicks off its E3 2019 festivities with a press conference on Sunday, June 9, at 5:30 p.m. PDT/8:30 p.m. EDT. Todd Howard has previously said not to expect much, if anything, on the upcoming Elder Scrolls 6 or Starfield, however. The theme of the event, or at least the official catchphrase, is “be together,” so take from that what you can. Still, Rage 2 may get a little more love with post-launch content, and Doom Eternal is nothing to sneeze at, based on what we saw last year. And there
