Fortnite: Battle Royale – Search Between Oasis, Rock Archway And Dinosaurs

Fortnite: Battle Royale – Search Between Oasis, Rock Archway And Dinosaurs

The second week of Fortnite’s fifth season started this morning, and with it comes a challenge you might find pretty tricky to complete: “Search between an oasis, rock archway, and dinosaurs.”

Off of the name alone, you’d be right in assuming the end location is in the newly added dessert, but where exactly? We’ll show you:

Fortnite: Battle Royale - Search Between Oasis, Rock Archway And Dinosaurs

As you can see, you’re aiming for a spot that’s north of the unnamed town in the southeastern part of the map. Specifically what you’re looking for is a small mountain. The Battle Star is on the side of that mountain.

To save yourself the trouble of building up to it, you can land right on it if you keep an eye out for the rock outcropping and the cactus on the side of that mountain. You can see them just to the right of our umbrella-wielding friend here:

Fortnite: Battle Royale - Search Between Oasis, Rock Archway And Dinosaurs

Once you land there, the Battle Star will be right smack dab between the rock and the cactus. Bingo, an easy tier on your Battle Pass complete.

You can see the dinosaurs just to the south and east of this location:

Fortnite: Battle Royale - Search Between Oasis, Rock Archway And Dinosaurs

The rock archway is to the north and east, and the oasis is just over to the west.

Fortnite: Battle Royale - Search Between Oasis, Rock Archway And Dinosaurs

And here’s the exact location of the Battle Star:

Fortnite: Battle Royale - Search Between Oasis, Rock Archway And Dinosaurs

The Battle Star is located right under the bigger mesa, but above the small stream that runs at ground level from the Oasis—so you’ll either need to drop down from above or build up to that small ledge in-between if you don’t glide there directly. It’s on the lower, more southern ledge on the eastern flank of the big mesa.

Remember: Going here right away is risky. Players will flock to this point on the map right when the challenge goes live, so be prepared to run or fight.

You might want to do both, though running up to Paradise Palms isn’t a bad idea either, since eliminating players in that urban area is one of this week’s other 10 star challenges. You might also play some 50 vs 50 if you want to avoid a fight since—if your team has that half of the map—you’ll be able to go here with a lower chance of being attacked.

Whatever course you take, hopefully this guide helps you—not only on your path to Tier 100, but also in your quest to unlock the secret Road Trip Outfit. For that one you’ll need to complete every weekly challenge for seven separate weeks. No small task, but a badge of honor for anyone with the skill and gumption to make it happen.

The Nintendo NES Classic Edition Relaunch – Getting a New Wireless Controller

The Nintendo NES Classic Edition Relaunch - Getting a New Wireless Controller And is finally back in stocka

The Nintendo NES Classic Edition Relaunch – Getting a New Wireless Controller

Nintendo’s much-sought NES Classic Edition is finally back in stock

Nintendo is relaunching the miniature NES Classic today, but that’s not all retro fans have to get excited about. 8BitDo has also announced a new, redesigned wireless controller for the micro-console, which is available today for preorder. The company previously made the best wireless option for the NES Classic back in 2016, and while the new version isn’t a huge shift, it does include a few notable improvements.

The biggest change is the addition of a dedicated home button, something Nintendo still hasn’t added, even with the SNES Classic follow-up. The gamepad also features a slightly different layout, with the four main face buttons arranged in a square, as opposed to a cross, and a new darker color scheme. Other than that, the new controller — dubbed the N30 2.4G — is virtually the same as its predecessor, with 2.4G wireless, a rechargeable battery, and a basic adaptor that makes for a simplified plug-and-play experience.

It’s not clear when the new controller will start shipping, but you can preorder now for $24.99.

Nintendo re-released the NES Classic Edition due to its popularity among fans. The company first released the miniaturized gaming system in 2016, when it sold out quickly due to high demand. And last year, the Japanese gaming giant released the Super NES Classic Edition which, as expected, quickly flew off shelves after retailers got a hold of them.

Available for $59.99, the NES Classic Edition brings back mid-1980s nostalgia for gamers. The re-released set includes 30 pre-loaded games, including Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and The Legend of Zelda.

Where to Buy


The NES Classic Edition is available on Amazon’s website, as well as in Amazon Books stores around the country. As of Friday morning, there were only a few gaming systems left on Amazon’s website, so act fast. Customers traveling to Amazon Books locations can check the availability at the store ahead of time using the Amazon app, the retail giant said.

Best Buy

Best Buy made the NES Classic Edition gaming systems available on June 29 in stores and online. However, by mid-morning on Friday, the console was already sold out online. Customers who lined up outside before they were re-released were only able to purchase one system per person, the company said.

It’s likely Best Buy will re-stock its shelves and online store with consoles, so keep checking back if you haven’t purchased one already.


GameStop is also selling the NES Classic Edition, with products available online and in stores around the country. The NES Classic Edition will arrive by July 3 if purchased Friday, according to GameStop, and customers can check availability by calling their local store ahead of time.


The NES Classic Edition was sold out on Target’s website as of Friday morning, but it’s possible products are still available in stores. Customers can check their store’s availability online here, where they can narrow their searches down to include locations near them with NES Classic Editions still available.


The product appeared to have been available online at ThinkGeek, but the site was sold out by mid-morning on Friday.


If you’re willing to pay a bit more, eBay may be an option. NES Classic Edition gaming consoles are available on the online store for around $80 and up, with some going for more than $100.

Fortnite Update: New Playground Mode

Fortnite Update: New Playground Mode

Fortnite Update: New Playground Mode

The new mode will give you the freedom to experiment in Fortnite’s world… once Epic Games gets version 4.5 to work

If you were hoping to get into the Playground limited time mode in Fortnite: Battle Royale tonight, you’re out of luck. Epic just confirmed that the highly-anticipated mode will not be returning tonight. It looks like we’ll have to wait for more info in the morning. There is not, at this moment, any estimate for when Playground will be returning.

Epic elaborated on the situation in a Reddit post, saying that there were “multiple teams” working on getting Playground back online. As with anything Fortnite, there’s a lot of pressure on those developers. The playground is a new creative mode that lets players explore the island, build and even scrimmage with their friends without the pressure of opponents in a battle royale. It’s essentially a private island for you and your friends, complete with respawns and extra building materials to let you run wild. It’s the sort of thing that players have been looking forward to for a long time.

The playground was actually live for a few moments this morning, and by all accounts, some people were able to sign in and go nuts with the new freewheeling exploration and building mode. Matchmaking problems and long queues reared their heads soon enough, and Epic took the mode down shortly after it went live. Players were…not pleased. The excitement surrounding the mode quickly turned to disappointment, and the long wait isn’t helping much.

In addition to the problems with Playground, Epic said it had received other reports of stability and performance issues. The developer issued a patch on PC early this evening to address those issues.

It’s important to remember that Fortnite adds content near-constantly and that unexpected problems can happen any time you add new features into the game. All in all, the game is pretty stable, especially when compared to some of its competition.

E3 2018 Nintendo: Top Announcements

E3 2018 Nintendo: Top Announcements

E3 2018 Nintendo: Top Announcements

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Super Mario Party, Fire Emblem, and more – Fans are really happy about Nintendo’s E3 Presentation

E3 2018 Nintendo: Top Announcements

Nintendo just delivered an incredible presentation at E3 2018, the biggest week for the video game industry. On Tuesday Nintendo’s presentation pulled it off by keeping it simple and focusing on games. And those games are actually arriving in the next six months – E3 2018 Nintendo: Top Announcements

Big players like Microsoft, Sony, and publishers like Ubisoft and Bethesda had already debuted their new coming. But all eyes were on Nintendo as the only big presentation on Tuesday.

Nintendo, then again, doesn’t hold live question and answer sessions at E3. By any stretch of the imagination.

Rather, it films pre-recorded recordings and puts them online at a given time, which it fittingly calls “Nintendo Direct.” Nintendo holds a few of these “Direct” video declarations consistently, yet E3 is the place Nintendo centers around the diversions turning out finished the following year.

This is for those who missed the whole presentation:

By shooting its introduction early, Nintendo can control the general stream of the show, all the way, by utilizing smart altering, music, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Indeed, there is a sure appeal to live occasions, however as Nintendo has appeared, the main thing that truly matters at last is regardless of whether individuals were inspired with what they saw. So whether it’s live or pre-recorded, introduction matters – and Nintendo surely by having more control.

Nintendo chooses to play it safe with this year’s E3 keynote.  Focusing more on soon to be released titles that people will actually be able to play in the coming months. They are Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Super Mario Party, and Pokémon: Let’s Go! Rather than offering updates on no-shows announced last year like Metroid Prime 4.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The conspicuous superstar amid Nintendo’s E3 feature is Super Smash Bros. Extreme. This will include a gigantic program of more than 60 contenders containing each and every Smash Bros. character to ever show up in the arrangement, including all the DLC characters from Smash Bros. for the Wii U and 3DS.

Truth be told, it burned through 24 out of the 42 add up to minutes of its Nintendo Direct video discussing “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.”

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate dispatches on December 7 solely for Nintendo Switch.

Striking features:

  • The new list will incorporate each character from past “Super Smash Bros.” diversions. And furthermore new characters like the Inklings from Nintendo’s more up to date “Splatoon” establishment and the hotly anticipated Ridley from the “Metroid” amusements.
  • A lot of levels from other “Super Smash Bros.” recreations will return, yet there will be new maps too.
  • You can play the amusement with any Nintendo Switch controller, or any Nintendo GameCube controller (sold independently).
  • Nintendo made “tens of  thousands” of updates to how the amusement really plays, from level-plan changes. It is to changes in what characters look like and play, to the numerous things accessible to be utilized as a part of the diversion, to “Final Smash” assaults, and that’s just the beginning.
The Game Play Videos Are Here:

Not much was said in regards to modes, but rather we know eight-player fights return. Extreme will likewise bolster all Amiibo figures and have GameCube controller bolster. The help will be accessible by means of the connector that initially propelled with Super Smash Bros. on Wii U.

Super Mario Party

Following a years-in length dry spell, “Mario Party” will make its triumphant come back with the arrival of “Super Mario Party”.

“Super Mario Party” brings back the well-known minigame arrangement bigly, with some extremely inventive better approaches to play with others. It underpins up to four individuals (this is a gathering, all things considered), and it arrives October 5.

Mario Party is advancing toward the Switch, much the same as every one of those early trailers of housetop Switch parties appeared to guarantee each one of those years prior. Super Mario Party appears as though it’ll be taking focal points of the Switch’s capacities in extremely intriguing ways when it releases on October fifth.

The Trailer is Here

Some portion of the charm of the Switch is its creative, convenient plan. Nintendo will gain by that with Super Mario Party, the following passage in the long-running gathering amusement arrangement. The trailer demonstrated that you can consolidate two Switch comforts in tabletop mode to play on two screens. Every player just needs a solitary Joy-Con to play the smaller than usual diversions, some of which likewise will exploit movement controls. Up to eight players can play at one time.

It’s been a long time since the last “Mario Party” diversion was accessible, yet that was on the Wii U support, which didn’t offer exceptionally well. For some, it’s presumable been quite a while since they’ve seen or played a “Mario Party” amusement.

Super Mario Party launches October 5 on Switch

So as one of Nintendo’s most famous establishments and one of the longest-running minigame arrangement ever, fans were charmed to see another passage going to the Nintendo Switch: “Super Mario Party.”

From what Nintendo appeared, “Super Mario Party” seems as though a standout amongst the most innovative amusements Nintendo has ever thought of.

In the event that you’ve never played “Mario Party,” expect a virtual table game for up to four players, with conventional dice roll-based gameplay separated by snappy minigames.

The minigames you play this time out will exploit the Nintendo Switch’s one of a kind movement controls and innovations. In this new diversion, for example, you can put two Nintendo Switch supports by each other and play on one mammoth show. It’s extremely slick, and looks ideal for parties, as the name would propose.

FORTNITE on Nintendo Switch

It was reputed to happen, and now it’s legitimate: Fortnite, the greatest diversion on the planet, is going to the Switch and you can play it at this moment. For nothing! The Switch form guarantees to offer the full Fortnite Battle Royale experience, and it’s accessible to download today from the eShop.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Nintendo has at long last taken the wrap off the new Fire Emblem amusement for the Switch. This is the Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Nintendo prodded an appropriate Fire Emblem diversion for Switch when the support was at first disclosed.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses will be out at some point in spring 2019.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses – The Trailer

It’s the principal mainline section in the arrangement for reassuring since 2007’s Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. It hopes to have the same luring framework style battle from ongoing handheld sections. The intensity of the Nintendo Switch makes the vivified activity groupings fly in a way that hasn’t been conceivable on the 3DS equipment.

Dragon Ball Fighterz is Getting A Switch Port Later This Year

Nintendo’s own fighting game may have the spotlight, however tucked into its feature reel was the news that Dragon Ball FighterZ and its unbelievable energized craftsmanship will make the bounce to the Switch at some point not long from now.


From the producer of the Armored Core franchise, Daemon X Machina is a gorgeous flying mech game with a neat art style and fast-paced combat filled with lots of explosions. Daemon X Machina, developed by Marvelous Games, launches in 2019 on Switch. Nintendo opened its presentation with a look at Daemon x Machina, a slick new game that features mech. Lots of mechs.


Ridley — the giant, draconic boss from the Metroid series — has been a long-running meme among Smash Bros. fans, who have spent years demanding that series head Masahiro Sakurai put him in the game. Today, that dream comes true: Ridley (along with the already teased Inklings) is joining the roster in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.


The massive 2017 RPG Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is getting even more DLC in September. Torna – The Golden Country, by the looks of the trailer, seems to be more substantial than the previous two DLC packs released in March. Torna – The Golden Country threads a new narrative into the game and will be available to those who purchased the season pass.

The outrageously popular battle royale game, Fortnite, has finally arrived on Switch. Available right now, you can play it both in console and portable mode.


Octopath Traveler, the Switch-exclusive RPG with a gorgeous retro-aesthetic, arrives on Switch on July 13. A demo has been available for a while (it’s great), but a new demo will land on the eShop on June 14.


The frantic and fun cooking party game, Overcooked, is getting a sequel. Overcooked 2lands on Switch August 7. This time around, you can play multiplayer online, a huge plus for this co-op experience.

The More is here:

Yes, the brunt of Nintendo’s conference focused on Smash and the other titles above. A slew of additional titles were briefly highlighted in a packed sizzle reel, though:

  • Hollow Knight – available now
  • Killer Queen Black – 2018
  • Starlink: Battle for Atlas – October 16
  • Arena of Valor – Fall 2018
  • Minecraft – June 21
  • Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle – Donkey Kong Adventure – June 26
  • Pixark – Fall 2018
  • Just Dance 2019 – October 23
  • Dragon Ball FighterZ – 2018
  • Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion – Summer 2018
  • Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – July 13
  • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy – June 29
  • Ninjalo – Spring 2019
  • Carcassonne – Holiday 2018
  • Mario Tennis Aces – June 22
  • Ark: Survival Evolved – Fall 2018
  • Wasteland 2 – Fall 2018
  • Fallout Shelter – available now
  • Paladins – available now
  • Dark Souls: Remastered – Summer 2018
  • SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy – September 7
  • Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate – August 28
  • Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus – June 29
  • The World Ends with You – Fall 2018
  • Mega Man 11 – October 2
  • FIFA 19 – September 28

Nintendo knows people want games sooner rather than later

One of the biggest trends at this year’s E3 is how many games are coming out next year or later. (Spoiler alert: It’s most of them.)

Nintendo, on the other hand, spent most of its presentation talking about games coming out in the next six months.

“Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” arrives in December. “Super Mario Party” arrives in October. “Mario Tennis Aces” arrives later this month. “Fortnite” and “Hollow Knight” arrive today.

On the other hand, most of the bigger games coming to rival consoles have vague release dates. We don’t know when “Halo Infinite” is coming to Xbox One. “The Last Of Us” looks great, but we still don’t have a date – it’s probably sometime in 2019 though. And who knows when “The Elder Scrolls VI” or “Death Stranding” are coming?

E3 2018: Electronic Entertainment Expo – All You Need to Know

E3 2018 Bethesda Conference: Fallout 76, The Elder Scrolls VI, Starfield and More

E3 2018 Bethesda Conference: Fallout 76, The Elder Scrolls VI, Starfield and More

E3 2018 Bethesda Conference: Fallout 76, The Elder Scrolls VI, Starfield and More

E3 2018 Bethesda Conference: Fallout 76, The Elder Scrolls VI and Starfield and More

We’re technically into day three of E3 2018. Bethesda just puts together one of the best E3 conferences of all time, right out of nowhere.

E3 2018 Bethesda Conference: EA kicked things off yesterday, and Microsoft had an extremely strong show earlier today (well, yesterday). But Bethesda wasn’t going to let Microsoft take all the glory, knocking it out of the park with the confirmation of The Elder Scrolls VI, Doom Eternal, and giving us more details about online RPG Fallout 76. There was even a performance from Andrew WK (the guy who sang Party Hard.)

When Bethesda announced it was showing off a new Fallout game at E3 this year, it was safe to assume that game would be the major focus of the show. That it would be what we were all be talking about afterwards.

In what I’d call one of the best E3 conferences in recent memory, Bethesda announced The Elder Scrolls VI, a new Doom, a new Wolfenstein, showed off Rage 2 and Fallout 76 (of course) and also showed off its first new IP in 25 years — a science fiction game called Starfield.

Let’s let’s Start in terms of Importance

Elder Scrolls VI

Twitch they did, though, at E3 2018. We finally got a solid announcement… and little else. But we now know that The Elder Scrolls 6 is in development.

For now, Bethesda isn’t ready to share details, but here’s everything we know about The Elder Scrolls 6 so far, based on rumors and interviews about the release date, location, and more. Keep track of this hub for updates as we learn more.

Before showing the teaser for The Elder Scrolls 6 at E3, Bethesda’s Todd Howard showed another trailer for Starfield, Bethesda’s first new wholly original franchise in 25 years (Fallout was originally an Interplay joint, remember). We don’t know much about Starfield, but we know that it’s coming before The Elder Scrolls 6.

“Starfield is a game we’ve spent years thinking about and working on, something we feel uniquely positioned to pull off, and we’re incredibly excited about,” Howard said. “But we’re also building toward the game after that… and it’s the one you keep asking about.”

  • Release Date

Years away. It’s not coming until after Starfield, Bethesda’s next big project, which itself has no release date and only a teaser trailer. Full development on The Elder Scrolls 6 likely won’t start until that project is finished, which likely puts The Elder Scrolls 6’s release date sometime in the early 2021s. We know—that’s a long wait.

“But we’re also building toward the game after that… and it’s the one you keep asking about.”

This teaser means that the new Starfield game will be released before The Elder Scrolls 6, which could mean fans will be waiting several years for the next adventure.

No official release date was announced for The Elder Scrolls 6, but fans should expect more details at next years E3 2019 conference.

A release date will likely be scheduled for some time after 2021.

This release date would mean that The Elder Scrolls 6 will be on the PS5, should it happen.

Sony has already said they won’t be unveiling any new hardware at E3 2018, but fans are still hoping for a big surprise from PlayStation.

Given that the release will not be for another few years at least, it could be on a whole new console system, especially after rumours surfaced of a new PS5 being released from Sony.

Sony has not officially announced when they will be launching a PS5, though fans speculate it could be released anywhere between 2018 and 2021.


Bethesda’s sci-fi epic. The rumours are true, Bethesda’s next adventure will be headed to space.

At its E3 2018 press conference Sunday, Bethesda confirmed that the long-rumoured title Starfield is indeed happening.

“Starfield is a game we’ve spent years thinking about and working on,” Bethesda director and executive producer Todd Howard told the crowd at E3. As Bethesda itself noted, it’s been a long time since it released a brand-new franchise.

  • Release Date

So far, no platforms or dates have been attached to Starfield, but for fans waiting for years for an official confirmation, just knowing it’s a thing may be enough for now.

Bethesda has a reputation for turning games around soon after announced a new adventure.

When they announced Fallout 4 in 2015, they managed to release the game less than six months after its initial announcement, though fans should not expect the same to happen with Starfield.

No official release date has been confirmed for Starfield, with the game to get more details at E3 2019 next year.

Fan theorists suggest Bethesda released this trailer at E3 2018 to avoid inevitable leaks of the trailer later on down the line, giving them control of what is released and when.

Fallout 76

Fallout 76 is a new type of online experience.

Earlier at Microsoft’s E3 conference, you’d be forgiven for thinking Fallout 76 was a brand-new Fallout game.

It is expressly an online video game. “Of course you can play this solo,” explained Howard. But he also mentioned that Fallout 76 is “entirely online”.

Fallout 76 was announced just a couple of weeks ago. We now know it’s coming out November 14 this year, and we also know the game will be getting a beta–the Break-it Early Test Application. Finally, the game is getting a cool-looking collectors’ edition that contains a glow-in-the-dark map and real, wearable Power Suit helmet.

  • The idea of Fallout 76

Every human you meet in the world is an actual human being in real life. But Howard stressed that this is a game that will be played with dozens of other players, not hundreds. Survival is the focus.

Howard did an incredible job of communicating the concept of this game to a player-base that might not interested in playing an online version of Fallout. “It’s a little bit scary,” he admitted but tried to communicate that it was a journey he hoped to take with a community used to single-player experiences.

  • Release Date

Fallout 76 launching this November – Bethesda Game Studios holding a beta. November 14, 2018. Not long!

Fallout 76’s titular vault will open Nov. 14, 2018, publisher Bethesda Softworks announced today during its BE3 Showcase ahead of E3 2018.

Bethesda announced Fallout 76 at the end of May with a teaser trailer showing off the well-maintained Vault 76. The vault, which was mentioned in both Fallout 3 and Fallout 4, was designed for humanity to be able to rebuild civilization after The Great War when a nuclear apocalypse destroyed much of the life on Earth. Fallout 76 takes place in 2102, just 25 years after the bombs fell; it is the earliest game in the series’ timeline. READ MORE HERE…

Rage 2

Rage 2 was the sequel nobody asked for, but we’re getting it, so it might as well be a souped-up shooter in the style of Mad Max: Fury Road by a developer who literally just got done making a Mad Max video game.

Considering the aesthetic we’ve seen so far, Rage 2 is everything you thought it might be: It’s pitching itself as a frenetically paced shooter. Think Bulletstorm, think Sunset Overdrive. This could be a lot of fun.

This Rage 2 trailer came about after a teaser trailer was first leaked online early on May 14, before officially being unveiled by Bethesda later on the same day. This isn’t the only leak that’s pestered the unveiling of Rage 2, as Walmart Canada originally revealed a listing for the game in early May 2018, causing the official Rage Twitter account to poke a bit of fun at the retailer, while also crucially never denying that the listing was real and not a fake.

  • Release Date

The first time we saw proper gameplay footage for Rage 2 was at Bethesda’s E3 2018 presentation on June 10. The demo for Rage 2 kicked off with Andrew WK of all people taking the stage. After the awkward camera cuts to the perplexed audience, Avalanche developers came out to talk the game up.

Protagonist Walker kicked off the gameplay footage, talking about how his parents were killed, and that he’s the last ranger of the wasteland. We then got some pre-alpha footage of Rage 2, where Walker is out to find a rare artefact.

RAGE 2 is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019. More on RAGE 2 will be revealed at E3 2018 in June. RAGE 2 is not coming to Nintendo Switch.

Skyrim: Very Special Edition

I can’t believe they pulled this off. I actually enjoyed an E3 inside joke. Please give me my Alexa Skyrim Edition.

It turns out, though, Skyrim: Very Special Edition is a very real thing. In case you missed it, Bethesda ran a skit starring Keegan Michael-Key as a gamer who plays a version of Skyrim using only his.

Key was shown giving Amazon Alexa commands in the game, sort of like a text adventure or a tabletop RPG. It was pretty funny, partly because everyone loves to joke about Bethesda continuing to find new platforms to bring Skyrim to and new ways to re-release the seven-year-old game.

It’s all fun and games until you realise you can actually play Skyrim: Very Special Edition. If you own an Amazon Echo or Amazon Dot, you can ask Alexa about the Skyrim skill.

The Skyrim Very Special Edition is actually very real and you can download it right now.

According to the listing, the Skyrim Very Special Edition allows you to “take your rightful place as the Dragonborn of legend (again) and explore Skyrim using the power of your voice…your Thu’um!”

The description also includes a list of bullet points that indicate what you, as a Dragonborn, can expect to do on Alexa, including; Guard your knees against arrows, walk straight up a mountain instead of going around, fail to collect all stones of Barenziah for like the 5th time, and…wait for it…open wooden doors.

While Alexa fans will no doubt be thrilled to finally be able to play Skyrim on their devices, it appears that the Etch-a-Sketch, Pager, and Samsung Smart Refrigerator versions are, unfortunately, not real. Though, with Skyrim, the dream is always alive.

DOOM Eternal

Doom was a game that looked terrible right up until it was on sale and actually really, really good. A sequel was a no-brainer and we got it. Bethesda showed very little of this game, but it definitely exists. Plan is to show more at QuakeCon in August.

Doom Eternal takes place at least partially on Earth, as teased in the above trailer and confirmed by the developers themselves at Bethesda’s E3 2018 press conference. It’s appropriate, since the original Doom took place on the Martian moon of Phobos before heading to humanity’s home in Doom 2: Hell on Earth.

How long will you have to wait to rip and tear your way through a new host of demons? Um, we don’t know yet. Sorry! Bethesda didn’t reveal a release date or window along with Doom Eternal, though it did say we can look forward to the gameplay reveal at QuakeCon on August 10. Hopefully, we’ll get a release date then too.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood

A new Wolfenstein title was announced which focuses on B.J. Blazkowicz’s twin daughters, and is set in 80s Paris. There’s also a Wolfenstein VR game coming out called Cyberpilot.

Not enough for you? Wolfenstein 2 is coming to Nintendo Switch in a few weeks “in our message to bring the message f*** Nazis to every platform possible.”

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a brand-new co-op game unveiled at the Bethesda BE3 Showcase 2018. The game takes place in 1980, 19 years after BJ Blazkowicz ignited the second American Revolution in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood introduces the next Blazkowicz generation to the fight against the Nazis. Play as one of BJ’s twin daughters, Jess and Soph, as you search for your missing father in Nazi-occupied Paris.

This is an amazing concept for a game, and the quality of Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, the previous game in the series, gives us even more reason to be optimistic. We look forward to sharing more news about Wolfenstein: Youngblood before its release in 2019.

Quake Champions

Quake Champions will be a free-to-play game. The new trailer for Quake Champions but not much other news on that front. Apart from the fact ‘Quake Dad’ will haunt that poor man forever.

There are a number of Quake players that just want to play their Quake, right? And they are familiar with the business model of our previous games, and they are totally fine.

What that means is that players who purchase the game will gain access to all of Quake Champions‘ characters while those free-to-play players will be able to use in-game currency to gain access to new Champions for a limited period of time. It’s not clear how long you will be able to access purchased Champions via the latter method, but Willits did say that he doesn’t want to use the word “rent” in regards to the nature of the transaction.

Players on both sides will have the chance to use in-game currency on other unlockables such as rune challenges and skins. Additionally, free-to-play and paid players will compete in the same brackets on the same maps using the same weapons. At this time, it appears the only potentially meaningful gameplay concept that requires currency are the characters themselves.

Quake Champions doesn’t have a release date as of yet. Strogg, the main bad guy from Quake II and IV, is making his way to Quake Champions in an upcoming April update.

PREY: Mooncrash

E3 2018: Electronic Entertainment Expo – All You Need to Know

E3 2018: Electronic Entertainment Expo - All You Need to Know

E3 2018: Electronic Entertainment Expo – All You Need to Know

E3 2018 is effectively here. The Electronic Entertainment Expo is the biggest event of the year in terms of game announcements.

E3 2018: Electronic Entertainment Expo - All You Need to Know

Computer game organizations have progressively started to share news in the weeks in front of E3 itself, and that is unquestionably turned out to be the situation this year- – Battlefield V, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Rage 2, and Fallout 76 have just been reported. In any case, there’s bounty more to anticipate, both as far as further specifics about those diversions – like exactly what is Fallout 76?- – despite everything others to be uncovered. Everything begins with the EA Play public interview on Saturday, June 9.

Be that as it may, as far as E3 itself, we have a total summary on all that you have to know. From the diversions and organizations we know will be there to the question and answer session timetable and subtle elements on the occasion, you’ll discover the majority of the key data about E3 2018. Make certain to stay tuned to GameSpot ahead of the pack up and through the occasion for full scope.

What Does E3 Stand For?

June is upon us, which can only mean one thing: It’s time for E3. We’ll soon be inundated with countless game announcements, trailers, and demos, including what’s sure to be some nice surprises–assuming they don’t all get leaked first. But what does E3 itself stand for?

E3 is a ubiquitous term for the industry’s biggest gaming event, but it’s merely a shorthand for its full name: the Electronic Entertainment Expo. E3 has been around for more than two decades now, dating back to 1995. It’s evolved significantly over the years, and in the mid-2000s actually changed its name and format pretty dramatically. The E3 Media and Business Summit was held in 2007 and 2008 as a more stripped-down show that limited the number of attendees.

More recently, E3 has expanded to even open its doors partially to the public. It’s still primarily an industry- and media-focused event, but game publishers are increasingly interested in using the money and effort it pumps into its E3 showings to go directly to fans. Recent years have also seen the event unofficially extended; while E3 itself lasts only three days, it’s closer to a week-long affair thanks to the press conferences that come before it and EA Play, which takes place on the Saturday before E3.

You can check out the video above for a more in-depth look at the history of E3. If you’re more interested in what’s going on this year, we’ve rounded up all of the key information about E3 2018. That includes a press conference schedule, rumors, and games confirmed at the show. There’s still sure to be a lot we don’t know about, so stay tuned to GameSpot for complete coverage.

When And Where?

E3 formally starts on Tuesday, June 12, and goes through Thursday, June 14. That is the point at which the show floor is really open at the Los Angeles Convention Center, as amusement organizations set up corners and demo their recreations to squeeze, individuals from the business, and- – in a substantially more ongoing move- – a select number of open participants.

While E3 itself endures just three days, things informally start much sooner. Electronic Arts has diverge from E3 and now has its own occasion, EA Play, the end of the week earlier. That starts on Saturday, June 9, while different organizations – including Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, Bethesda, and Ubisoft- – will have their own question and answer session in the prior days E3 starts.

E3 2018: Electronic Entertainment Expo - All You Need to Know

The Press Conferences

EA Play kicks things off, filling in as both a scaled down E3 committed to Electronic Arts’ diversions and playing host to the distributer’s yearly question and answer session. That occurs on June 9. On June 10, we’ll get public interviews from Microsoft, Bethesda, and Devolver Digital. June 11 will see Square Enix (new to facilitating its own particular question and answer session), Ubisoft, and Sony go ahead, notwithstanding the PC Gaming Show, which is a somewhat extraordinary kind of mammoth. Nintendo rounds things out with its online communicate on June 12, that day E3 starts.

Watching the Press Conferences

Why, appropriate here on GameSpot, obviously! We’ll be spilling the question and answer sessions live, trailed by responses from our staff. Moreover, we’ll have a livestream loaded with engineer meetings and diversion demos consistently. Then, Nintendo will take after its Direct-style question and answer session with its run of the mill Treehouse stream that exhibits diversions going to its stages. The PC Gaming Show will stream on stages like Twitch.

The Companies Attending The Show

A huge number of developers and publishers, both big and small, will be in attendance at E3. Of course, just being there doesn’t mean they have something to announce or show, although Witcher fans are nonetheless hoping CD Projekt Red is there to showcase Cyberpunk 2077, not just take meetings.

The festivities begin with the EA Play event on Saturday, June 9, and continue until E3 closes on June 14. In the meantime, you can see a list of all the companies attending this year’s E3 below. You can also find the press conference schedule, along with our full coverage of the expo, on our E3 2018 hub.

The Big E3 Rumors

Speaking of which, rumors and leaks have already spoiled some pre-E3 announcements, including Rage 2 and Lego DC Super-Villains. There are plenty of other rumors circling ahead of E3 for games that–assuming they’re real–we won’t hear about until the companies’ respective press conferences, including Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Just Cause 4, and Forza Horizon 4. There’s also word that Fallout 76, which appears to be a pretty standard Bethesda RPG, will have online survival elements.

E3 2018 Rumors

Crackdown 3 Delayed

The oft-delayed open-world action game Crackdown 3 had been slated for release sometime in 2018, but it’s reportedly been pushed back yet again. As such, it’s unclear how prominently it will be featured–if at all–during Microsoft’s E3 press conference.

Update: Crackdown 3 has officially been delayed until 2019.

Hitman 2 Leaked

Publisher WB Games has teased an announcement of some sort is coming on June 7, ahead of E3. It doesn’t provide any indication of what that will be for, but a teaser video shows a race car with the brand Hamsun on it–a reference to something from the first season of IO Interactive’s Hitman. (IO and WB worked on a re-release of that game not long ago.) If that’s not direct enough for you, a Reddit user discovered the source code for WB’s website briefly hosted a link to an image file with a logo for something called Hitman 2. That seems pretty clear cut, but we should learn more on Thursday.

Update: Hitman 2 is indeed real and releases later this year.

  • Hitman 2 Leaked Ahead Of E3 2018, It Seems

Fortnite Coming To Nintendo Switch

A Korean ratings board listing has revealed what could be an E3 surprise: A Nintendo Switch port of Fortnite. The listing doesn’t specify which of the game’s modes–Save the World or the phenomenally popular Battle Royale–will be included, but it’s hard to imagine the latter would not make the cut.

  • Fortnite Coming To Nintendo Switch, According To Ratings Board

Overcooked 2, Paladins, And More

While 4chan leaks are not especially reliable, a photo has surfaced that may in fact be real. It shows names for a variety of Nintendo Switch games that will apparently be advertised around the E3 show floor. This includes already-confirmed games like Mario Tennis Aces, but it also shows Fortnite (which, as noted above, looks to be real), Paladins, and Overcooked 2. Whereas Fortnite and Paladins would be ports of existing games, Overcooked 2 has not yet been announced–and it’s possible that it could also come to PC, PS4, and Xbox One in addition to Switch, if it is indeed real.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

A new Assassin’s Creed was among the games seemingly leaked by Walmart Canada. Although that retailer listing was very non-specific–it didn’t include a subtitle or number–we’ve now heard what could be the title for such a game. According to JeuxVideo, which reportedly received a photo of a collectible keychain, the new game is called Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. The keychain itself consists of a helmet resembling one from Ancient Greece, perhaps indicating that will be the setting for the new game.

Update: Ubisoft apparently didn’t feel like having the rumors swirl until E3, so it’s decided to confirm that Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is real. It offered up a very brief, 300-ish clip and stated Odyssey is indeed the name, but beyond that, we’ll have to wait for E3 for more details.

Borderlands Getting PS4, Xbox One, PC Re-Release

We know a new Borderlands is eventually coming, whether it’s called Borderlands 3 or something else. Gearbox denies it’ll be at E3, and publisher 2K recently delayed an unannounced game, which could be that Borderlands title. But it looks as if E3 might not be completely devoid of Borderlands news, as the Korean ratings board has listed Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. While not official by any means, ratings board leaks are often a reliable source. Given the timing, we might just hear about this project at E3.

Gears Of War 5, New Assassin’s Creed, Just Cause 4, And More

Many of the expectations for E3 2018 were set in one go. Retailers have been known to leak things from time to time, but Walmart’s Canadian website seemed to potentially spoil quite a lot with a single leak. Listings for numerous unannounced games went online in May, including Rage 2, a new Assassin’s Creed, Gears of War 5, Dragon Quest 2, and Just Cause 4.

The sheer number, combined with some typos–such as Forza “Horizons” 5, rather than what would be the series’ next game, Forza Horizon 4–made it all seem unlikely. However, Bethesda had an unusual response to the whole situation, and soon after we learned that Rage 2 is real (and since then, Lego DC Super-Villains). Two games from this list turning out to be legitimate doesn’t mean the others are anything but placeholders or errors, but it does lend some credence to the possibility of them being real.

E3 2018: Electronic Entertainment Expo - All You Need to Know

A New Splinter Cell Will Be Revealed

Another game mentioned in the Walmart Canada leak was something simply titled Splinter Cell. This might also turn out to be nothing but a placeholder, but Ubisoft itself has certainly set fans up to expect some kind of news related to the franchise before long. Following Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot’s comments last year, the company released a Splinter Cell-themed update for Ghost Recon Wildlands earlier this year. That not only set up the potential plot for a new Splinter Cell, but it marked the return of beloved Sam Fisher voice Michael Ironside–and it doesn’t seem like a stretch to think Ubisoft brought him in for more than just a small cameo.

  • Splinter Cell: What We Know And Want At E3 2018

Fallout News Is Coming

This is less a rumor and more speculation, as fans believe we’re nearing an announcement involving the Fallout franchise. Bethesda offered days of teases for Rage 2 before it was revealed, and, as of this writing, it’s seemingly begun to do the same for Fallout. The company first tweeted a “please stand by” image similar to a screen we’ve seen in the series previously. Subsequently, it kicked off a livestream with the same image playing on a screen in the background, but with a Fallout Vault Boy figure in the foreground.

That’s sparked speculation that we could see a new Fallout game or–perhaps more likely, given its Skyrim re-releases–a remastered version of Fallout 3 or 4, perhaps for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch. Bethesda has said this year’s press conference could be its biggest ever; clearly it’s got more than just Rage 2 and updates to The Elder Scrolls Online to talk about.

Update: Indeed, Fallout news has arrived. Bethesda Softworks has officially unveiled Fallout 76, a new game developed by Skyrim and Fallout dev Bethesda Game Studios. We don’t know a ton at this point about how it will play, but Kotaku reports it will be have online-based survival elements. Bethesda said we’ll be hearing more at E3; if that is the form the game takes, Bethesda is sure to provide some indication at E3.

Star Fox Is Getting A Racing Game Called Grand Prix

The Star Fox franchise hasn’t seen much activity in recent years save for the Wii U game Star Fox Zero, but that may change in the near future. According to leaks published around the internet and a report from Eurogamer, Retro Studios–of Metroid Prime and Donkey Kong Country Returns fame–is at work on a racing game called Star Fox: Grand Prix. Reddit user DasVergeben claims it will feature elements of F-Zero and Diddy Kong Racing, with an adventure mode and hub world.

Cyberpunk 2077 (Or Another CD Projekt Red Game) Will Be There

We know CD Projekt Red, the developer of the Witcher series and the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, is attending E3. A listing on the official E3 website earlier this year suggested the studio would be there to show off an RPG, although that was later removed. The company has not yet announced its plans for the event–if it has anything to publicly show at all–but fans have their fingers crossed that Cyberpunk (or the studio’s other triple-A RPG) will finally be revealed properly.

N64 Classic Edition Will Be Announced

While not E3-specific, there have been rumors about an N64 Classic Edition since the release of the NES Classic. With both that system and the subsequent SNES Classic proving to be huge successes, it would be no surprise to see Nintendo continue the trend by bringing a mini version of the Nintendo 64 to the market. Trademark filings have also suggested it’s something Nintendo is at least considering, and Nintendo would be the ideal place to reveal its existence.

What Do We Want To See?

Like you, we’ve got a long wishlist of things we’re hoping to see at E3 2018. That includes specific details and features in games that we both know will be there (Rage 2, Death Stranding, Spider-Man) and those we do not (a new Splinter Cell, Borderlands 3, Just Cause 4). We’ve compiled what we know about these projects and what we’re hoping to see at the event.

Is E3 Open To The Public?

Unlike most of E3’s history, yes, E3 is now open to the public, but you can’t just show up and get in. Tickets for the Gamer Pass are up for sale for $249, though you should be prepared for long lines to get into see most things on the show floor. Hours for when you can get in are different than in 2017, as Industry Pass holders (including exhibitors and members of the media) will get in before everyone else on Tuesday and Wednesday.

All the key information to know: Press Conference Schedule For EA Play, Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, And More

Trust it or not, E3 2018 is here. The yearly gaming spectacle comes back to Los Angeles for what is ready to be one of the greatest long stretches of the year for gaming news, uncovers, and trailers.

Square Enix takes after these on Monday morning; Ubisoft at that point proceeds toward the evening, with Sony’s introduction slated for later that night. The PC Gaming Show likewise occurs on Monday. Nintendo at that point finishes up the question and answer sessions with its preparation on Tuesday morning.

Underneath we’ve laid out the correct calendar, finish with times, for the greater part of the current year’s question and answer sessions. It’s impossible any others will be declared now, yet we’ll stay up with the latest with any progressions. We’ll be gushing these question and answer sessions here on GameSpot and in addition on Twitter. The show itself runs June 12-14, and like a year ago, it’s available to the general population – here’s the means by which to get tickets.

For a thought of what’s in store from the show, look at all the amusements affirmed for E3, and in addition every one of the organizations at the show. We’ve additionally gathered together the greatest E3 gossipy tidbits to give you a thought of what may be reported.

You’ll be able to watch the event, which will also feature news on open-world shooter Rage 2, here on GameSpot, and on our Twitter, YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook accounts.Bethesda’s marketing boss is promising the company’s press conference won’t be drawn out; the company is known for keeping things tight during previous E3s.

Sunday, June 10
6:30 PM PT
9:30 PM ET
2:30 AM BST (June 11)
11:30 AM AEST (June 11)

There’s still a lot to learn about Fallout 76. We know the game is set before the original Fallout, and that players will take on the role of a Vault Dweller in the underground bunker known as Vault 76. Bethesda was quick to state that we’d be seeing much more of the game on June 10. In recent years, the publisher has revealed a lot of games, including Fallout 4, Prey, and Wolfenstein II, during its E3 press conferences, so Fallout fans likely won’t be disappointed. Here’s everything we know and want to see from Fallout 76 this E3.

Rage 2 is Bethesda’s other big game in the spotlight. Like the original Rage, it’s an open-world shooter set in a post-apocalyptic environment with a very Mad Max vibe. We don’t have much confirmed info about the game yet, other than that it’ll release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019. The game is being developed by id Software, known for the first Rage game and the stellar 2016 remake of Doom, and Avalanche Studios, known for dense open-world games like Just Cause. Here’s everything we know and want to see from Rage 2 at E3 2018.

    • E3 2018 is just a few days away. The show proper begins on Tuesday, June 12 in Los Angeles, but as has become the norm, many games publishers–including Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, and others–are holding their own press conferences in the days leading up to the show itself.Sony’s E3 press conference is scheduled to begin on Monday, June 11 at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET (2 AM BST / 11 AM on June 12). We know we’ll be seeing more of upcoming PS4 games like Death Stranding, The Last of Us: Part II, Ghost of Tsushima, and Spider-Man, and there may be more announcements included too. However, Sony has already stated it won’t be showing any new hardware at E3, so you can forget about PS5 for now.

      For Death Stranding, Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios chairman Shawn Layden said the company has a “complete new report for everybody about what is happening around that title,” while Ghost of Tsushima will also have a “deep dive.” For Spider-Man there will be “a new drop,” which is likely to be a new trailer. Finally, The Last of Us Part 2 will have “a full new scope and treatment to show progress on the game and give people a better understanding of where we’re going with Part 2.”

      GameSpot will be streaming Sony’s conference live on June 11 on Twitter, YouTube, Twitch, and Facebook, while we’ll also be at hand to provide in-depth coverage of the conference both before and after Sony’s presentation. You can take a look at the full E3 2018 press conference schedule for more information on everything happening during that week.

  • Nintendo — 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM BST (2 AM AET on June 13)

    E3 2018 is nearly upon us. The show formally kicks off on Tuesday, June 12, but as in recent years, many big-name publishers will host their own press conferences in the days leading up to the event. Nintendo’s will once again take the form of a pre-recorded Direct-style video presentation, which is scheduled to air at 9 AM PT / 12 PM PT / 5 PM BST, just before E3 proper begins.

    As usual, the company has been fairly secretive about its plans heading into this year’s E3. Outside of confirming that Super Smash Bros. for Switch will play a prominent role both in its presentation and on the show floor, Nintendo hasn’t announced any of the titles it plans on showcasing at the expo. However, we do know that the aforementioned video presentation won’t be the extent of its plans for E3 2018.

    Once again,

    Nintendo will follow its E3 briefing with a series of Treehouse Live streams, which will air each of the three days the expo runs. Additionally, Nintendo will host competitive esports tournaments for Super Smash Bros. Switch and Splatoon 2, the latter of which is set to receive a big, paid DLC expansion this summer. The Splatoon 2 World Championship begins on Monday, June 11, with the finals taking place on June 12. The Super Smash Bros. Invitational 2018 tournament will kick off shortly afterward and features well-known competitive Smash players from around the world.

    Aside from that, however, we have little idea of what to expect from Nintendo at E3. The company has said that its presentation will focus primarily on games launching soon, so we’ll get a much clearer idea of what its release schedule for Switch will be through the end of the year. It seems likely that we’ll learn more about some of the titles that were announced at last year’s E3, such as Metroid Prime 4 and Yoshi. We may also see more of the recently revealed Pokemon RPGs for Switch: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Let’s Go, Eeevee.

    Whatever the case, we won’t have to wait much longer to find out. Nintendo will broadcast its E3 2018 presentation on its YouTube and Twitch channels. GameSpot will also host a stream of the briefing, so you can tune in right here on June 12 to follow along with all of Nintendo’s big announcements.

Fallout 76 Coming

Fallout 76 Coming

Fallout 76 Coming

Bethesda has announced the latest game in the Fallout series and fans have been left with a lot of questions. Fallout 76 Coming..

A teaser for Fallout 76 was release on Wednesday in a short trailer and very little information has been shared by the publisher so far. More information is set to be revealed at E3 in June but Fallout fans are already desperate to know more. Here is what we know so far and when you could expect the game to be available. Fallout 76 Coming..

What is Fallout 76?

Bethesda released the trailer on Wednesday to the surprise of many in the gaming world, but they didn’t specify exactly what to expect from Fallout 76. The only clues we have so far are based on what is in the trailer, but Kotaku journalist Jason Schreier and other insiders have described it as ‘an online survival RPG that’s heavily inspired by games like DayZ and Rust’. Fans can find out more about the new game during Bethesda’s E3 Showcase which will take place at the event in Los Angeles. The publisher is scheduled to have its E3 Conference on Sunday 10 June at 6:30pm PT, which can be watched live on any of their social media platforms or directly from their website.

When is the release date? There was no sign of a release date in the Fallout 76 trailer and no mention of one from Bethesda. Most of Bethesda’s recent games have been released in the same year that they’ve been announced, including 2015’s Fallout 4, so it’s very likely going to have an autumn launch. There is no guarantee of that, but Bethesda should announce more information, including a release date, at their pre-E3 conference on 10 June.

Fallout 76 Coming: Fallout 76 is an ‘online survival RPG’ – an interstate highway claim insiders

The new Fallout game is not an MMO but allegedly a mixture of Rust and DayZ, that may also include vehicles and base-building. Bethesda announced a brand new Fallout game yesterday. The only problem is they didn’t say what it is. It’s pretty obviously not Fallout 5 but whether it’s a spin-off that’s still more or less the same concept, like New Vegas, or something completely different isn’t clear. But Kotaku journalist Jason Schreier seems to have the inside track on the game, and has described it as ‘an online survival RPG that’s heavily inspired by games like DayZ and Rust’. This seems to be the consensus amongst other insiders, with another American journo claiming that the game has a heavy focus on Fallout 4 style base-building.

Apparently the game was originally a prototype for a multiplayer version of Fallout 4, but evolved into something else over time. According to Schreier it will still have quests and a story, but also base-building ‘and other survival-based and multiplayer mechanics’. The game’s name comes from Vault 76, which has been mentioned in both Fallout 3 and 4. Instead of being focused on weird social experiments it is a ‘control vault’ where everyone is turfed out as soon as nuclear war is over – hence the unusually early date seen in the trailer and the need for so much base-building.

Posters on Reddit also claim that the game is set along an interstate highway which is, in part, what the ‘76’ in the title stands for. We also like the suggestion from a reader in this morning’s Inbox that this is probably going to be the first Bethesda Fallout game with vehicles, although whether that – or indeed any of these other rumours – is true we won’t know for certain until the game is properly revealed at Bethesda’s pre-E3 show on Sunday, June 10.
