It’s the weekend, which means we’re in the midst of the latest beta session for The Elder Scrolls Online! If you have a beta code, be sure to join the fun. And if you can’t make it this time around, you can catch up on all the notable gameplay streams throughout the ESO community.
So what else is worth checking out this weekend? Here’s some highlights from the past week…

- Preparing for The Evil Within this August? A new feature at Gamespot readies you for the return of survival horror with classic games and films that will condition your mind for Shinji Mikami’s newest (and most twisted) game.
- We’ve got even more previews for Wolfenstein: The New Order — with the latest coming from 411Mania, IGN AU, Gamespot, and Nerd Reactor.
That’s all for now. See you in beta!

Recently Wikia announced the winners of our “Thinking Outside the Boxman” sweepstakes
for the The Evil Within. Based on the 3D model we provided (above), we got some pretty amazing entries.
