Happy Halloween… have a great weekend!
Tomorrow we’re getting getting into the spirit (and perhaps costumes, too) for a Halloween edition of Bethesda Twitchworks — with plenty of tricks and treats (read: cool swag) to give away!
To kick off our Halloween party, we’ll start by mingling with vampires and werewolves in Skyrim’s first add-on, Dawnguard. Moving on from that, we will hobnob in Dishonored with the most prestigious resident of Dunwall at the annual masquerade party held at the Boyle Mansion.
We descend from elegance to grotesque as we check on our favorite ghouls residing in the Capital Wasteland’s Dunwich Building & and the blood-covered bosses from The Evil Within.
Tune in for our spooktacular Halloween feature this Friday (10/31) at 4pm EDT on Twitch.TV/Bethesda.
If you fire up The Evil Within today, you will notice the game will patch automatically with a new game update.
With the update, players with high-end PCs will be able to go in to their settings and toggle between running the game with a 30 FPS cap or a 60 FPS cap. Additionally, players will be able to disable the letterbox “black bars” in the game settings — allowing you to maximize your screen’s real estate.
Full changelog below…
- Frame lock settings added
- In settings, you can now toggle between a 30 FPS and 60 FPS cap.
- Letterbox setting
- UI toggle to disable the letterbox bars
- Fixes gameplay issues when running at >30 FPS
- Fixes for visual issues associated with removing letterbox framing
- Achievements now work when console is enabled
- Fix for game starting in windowed mode on first run
- Minor localization fixes

This Saturday (October 25th) marks the 6th annual Extra Life gaming marathon for charity. Each year, gamers all over the world unite for a 24 hour period (or whatever they may choose) to support and donate to children’s hospitals to help sick kids.
We have long supported the event, but this year’s we’ve created our very own Extra Life page. Our streaming will begin on October 25th at 12 am EDT on our Twitch Channel as we support our area hospital, Children’s National in Washington D.C.
