While many of us are in Dallas this weekend for QuakeCon, Skyrim’s Lead Environmental Artist, Noah Berry, and Visual Effects Artist, Mark Teare, will be discussing Skyrim’s Effects at the Los Angeles Film School tomorrow at noon.
This is a free event for students on a first come, first serve basis.
1. If you’re at QuakeCon 2012, be sure to visit the Exhibit Hall, as it’s playable to the public for the first time! 2. Watch GameTrailers TV’s new look at Dishonored (watch it above). 3. The latest issue of Game Informer features a lengthy hands-on of the game’s opening hours. Look for it on newsstands soon.
In addition to these beats, be on the lookout for the newest coverage on the game coming out of QuakeCon. Plenty of folks played the game today and previews, like this one at We Got This Covered, are making their way online.
At today’s QuakeCon 2012 kickoff, we gave id fans a first look at DOOM 3 BFG Edition’s ‘Lost Mission.’ Comprised of eight never-before-seen levels, the ‘Lost Mission’ will be exclusively available in the BFG Edition releasing this Fall.

We are not satisfied yet with Dawnguard’s performance on the PS3. We would like for everyone to have a chance to play Dawnguard, but we aren’t going to release it for PS3 knowing that some people’s experience in Skyrim will be worse. We do everything we can to have our content available to all; from our free updates, to user mods, to paid DLC. We’re as disappointed as our fans when that isn’t the case, but we’ll continue to push for that reality.
