DOOM Retro Tease

That didn’t take long. Yesterday @DOOM tweeted the idea of doing a throwback video spoofing DOOM’s teaser video. Hours later (and perhaps by pure coincidence), YouTuber UberOfFP put together this sweet little package using DOOM II.

Pretty spot on. To see the new DOOM that id Software’s working on now, don’t miss our E3 Showcase — June 14th at 7pm PT on Twitch.TV/Bethesda and

The Elder Scrolls’ Music Returns to the Classic FM Hall of Fame


For the fourth year in a row, Jeremy Soule’s music to The Elder Scrolls series has made the Classic FM Hall of Fame top 300 – the world’s biggest poll of classical music tastes. Ranked 11th overall (just behind Beethoven’s Symphony No.6 in F major Op.68), it’s a huge honor for The Elder Scrolls franchise and a testament of the amazing fans of the series.

Thanks to all the fans that voted!

Recently in our official forums, member Darkelfguy reached out to me to let me know about a new Morrowind modding interview project he’s begun — in a similar vein to the modding projects we’ve featured for Morrowind, Fallout, Oblivion, and Skyrim here on Bethesda Blog.

The most recent interview features MikeandIke. If you’d like to see more in-depth interviews like this one, subscribe to the Morrowind Modding Showcases on YouTube.

Skyrim Mods goes Live in London

Last weekend hosted the very first live edition of Gamespot’s Top 5 Skyrim Mods of the Week show. Over 100 fans came from far and wide to pack out London’s Loading bar – one US resident even crossing the Atlantic to be at the special show – where they were treated to an evening of Skyrum (heh!) cocktails, sweetrolls, prizes and, of course, plenty of new Skyrim mods.

Regular hosts Cam and Seb, along with special guest companion Dovahbear, kept the crowd entertained with a predictably madcap mix of cheese-based Dragon Shouts and giant, exploding chickens, but mostly it was a great chance for members of the community to meet up, enjoy the game and quiz the hosts on how the show is made.

If you weren’t able to get to the event you can view it online here or at or check out some of the pictures from the event in the gallery below.

Friday Fan Art Finds Some Evil Within

Focus on this! We’ve collected and put together a nice little mini gallery of some of our favorite art pieces from the last few weeks and placed it below. Rorschach test results have concluded that there is a taste for horror in psyches this week.

In addition to the artwork made by you guys, we’ve also had some fun showing off ours. Earlier this week we revealed the gameplay trailer for “The Assignment” DLC for The Evil Within with accompanying concept art and screenshots going up on our Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook pages. We’ve provided just a glimpse at what you can expect to see in the coming weeks leading up to “The Assignment”‘s release in the gallery below.
