Bethesda TwitchWorks: ESO What Do We Do?

Now for something a little easier (hopefully?) than Wolfenstein: The New Order’s Ironman Mode. Join us in taking an exciting and foreign trip to the MMO world of The Elder Scrolls Online.

Admittedly, Gstaff and I aren’t MMO experts, so what better way to trial and error than with your help? We are open to suggestions about every aspect of the path our character will take including race, gender, play style… well, you get the idea.

In addition to our Tamriel venture, we will be featuring developer commentary from Jens Matthies and Jerk Gustafsson during their playthrough of their game, Wolfenstein: The New Order. Get inside knowledge from the mouths of the devs themselves as they play Chapter 1 (and much more successfully than we did last time).

During the stream, we will give you a few opportunities to win some cool things including a signed PlayStation 4 copy of Wolfenstein: The New Order. Tune in to Twitch.tv/Bethesda this Friday at 4pm EDT to make sure you don’t miss all the fun!

Bethesda Underground Presents: The Evil Within – The American

As we draw nearer to “The Evil Within’s” release date (October 14 in North America, October 17th in Europe), we’re giving you a closer look at the names and faces of Tango Gameworks — the developers behind Shinji Mikami’s return to survival horror. These videos come from a recent trip to Tango’s office located in Tokyo, Japan.

Meet Tango Gameworks’ Level Designer, John Johanas – AKA ‘The American’.

QuakeCon 2014: #EvilTakesHold a week early!

tew_finalbox_3D-ALL_PLATFORMS_wbg

Announced today at QuakeCon, we’re ready to bring Shinji’s Mikami’s latest adventure to your darkly-lit living room a week early.

On October 14th in North America, October 16th in AUS/NZ, and October 17th for Europe, The Evil Within will launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.

To help you through Shinji’s return to survival horror, don’t forget that pre-ordering the game means you’ll have access to the Fighting Chance Pack — full of weapons and resources that will prove useful in your playthrough. Trust us… you’ll want every bit of help you can get.

We’ll be relaying more news and updates on The Evil Within as we get closer to launch. Stay informed by following the game on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr.

On the Storefront: GUAR!

Much more on the soft side than the scaley side, Gaming Heads introduces the new Guar plush from The Elder Scrolls Online. These Morrowind natives can now dwell in your house and be a fun enhancement to your Tamriel experience. Speaking of which–this little guy enables you to get the item code for your very own in-game Guar pet!

Order yourself one of these reptilian squishables by capturing one at store.bethsoft.com or GamingHeads.com.

Fanart Friday: Faceoff!

Nothing stands out in an art piece more than someone’s face missing! That may not be entirely true as we see plenty of amazing artwork and cosplay complete with faces, but we certainly were paying attention to the DOOM piece Brock Hofer sent to us above.

See more faceful and faceless imagery below as we feature plenty of amazing art pieces from Dishonored, Skyrim, and DOOM. If you have some art of your own, send it to us to share using #BethesdArt on Twitter and Instagram or to bethblog@bethsoft.com.

This Friday on Twitch – Trying (and Failing) at Wolfenstein’s Ironman Mode

Since last year, we’ve dabbled w/ Twitch – for gameplay livestreams and QuakeCon presentations for our games, but now we’re ready to try something new – beginning with our first episode of a regularly scheduled “variety show”.

Starting this Friday at 4pm (EDT for us East Coasters), we’ll be torturing ourselves for everyone to see via Wolfenstein: The New Order’s “Ironman Mode”. For those of you who aren’t familiar, “Ironman Mode” starts you off on UBER difficulty with one –and only one life, and if you die you have to completely start over.

Once we’re done being punished, we’ll be taking your questions and making small talk in the Twitch chatroom. Tune in and see what happens by watching below or by visiting Twitch.tv/Bethesda.

Have suggestions for what you’d like to see on the show (no, we’re not announcing new games) – we’d love to hear your feedback via email bethblog@bethsoft.com or by tweeting us with #BethesdaTwitchWorks in the message.
