Halloween Happenings

It just wouldn’t be a Halloween post if we didn’t have the annual sharing of office costumes. Take a look at the great outfits from our both Rockville HQ and id’s office in Dallas!

Have you gutted your orange globe yet and carved it up? We’ve been seeing some wonderful jack-o-lanterns this Halloween season ranging from Skyrim to Dishonored to The Evil Within. Send us your costumes, artwork and orange scary squash and we’ll add them to the post.

Happy Halloween… have a great weekend!

Bethesda TwitchWorks: It’s HALLOWEEN

HalloweenTwitch

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.
