Prepare for Chills from “The Art of The Evil Within”

Following last week’s reveal of Dishonored’s “The Dunwall Archives” art book, this week we’re featuring another fine art book from Dark Horse, “The Art of the Evil Within”. Sure to excite any fan of Shinji Mikami or just horror fans in general, “The Art of the Evil Within” features concept art, developer notes, and designs featured in game.

Packed with 184 pages of incredible and spine-tingling artwork and features, the hardcover book releases this October to accompany the game’s launch.

Get a glimpse of the book in the pages below.

Announcing the ESO Loyalty Program

Tamriel is growing, as is the amount of adventurers traversing the lands, but that doesn’t mean that recognition shouldn’t be given to the players that have been in The Elder Scrolls Online since the beginning.

September introduces the Elder Scrolls Online subscriber loyalty program. Paid accounts that have been subscribed for three months will receive the Ice Wraith vanity pet that will follow you on your journey.

Keep checking elderscrollsonline.com to find out about future rewards and continuing news on the growth of Tamriel.

Bethesda TwitchWorks: #EvilTakesHold of Twitch

#EvilTakesHold of Pete Hines.

We’d like to say that Pete Hines is our fearless leader, but when it comes to survival horror games, it probably apt to call him our fearful leader. And for that reason, we thought he’d be the perfect first guest for Bethesda Twitchworks to play The Evil Within. In the dark.

So how will he do? Tune in at 4pm EDT to Twitch.tv/Bethesda to witness the fate of Detective Castellanos & Mr. Hines as they explore The Evil Within.

Skyrim Voted #1 Game (of All Time) Down Under!

Watch until the end to hear a special thanks from BGS!

During the month of July, Australian TV show Good Game ran a poll to vote for the country’s top 100  games of all time, and we are happy to report that Skyrim was selected as the #1 game, and Fallout 3 also cracked the top 10 at #8 on the list.

Watch the video above to get the countdown experience or if reading is more your speed, see the full list here. Big congrats to the team at Bethesda Game Studios and thanks to all the Aussies that voted!

Friday Fan Art: Constructed Whaler?

There’s certainly no “free Willy” in  TheWhaleOilKing’s perfectly constructed Lego Whaling Trawler above. From plastic to painting, we show off some of this week’s incredible artwork spanning multiple titles including Fallout New Vegas, Wolfenstein: The New Order, and more Dishonored. Then we have some cosplay coming from DeviantArt and San Diego Comic Con.

Check out the album below to see what talent we’ve found inspiring. We dont’ want to stop now! Send us your work (whatever it may be*) by emailing bethblog@bethsoft.com, or by social media (#BethesdArt).

*By “whatever it may be” we mean nothing graphic. Keep it SFW.

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!
