Bethesda’s reputation further hurt as Elder Scrolls composer likely replaced

A lot of people are not liking 76, and despite our Fallout 76 Review, countless controversies surrounding business practices that we are not fans of and are impossible to defend have emerged. Perhaps most tragic, BattleCry studios being renamed to Bethesda Game Studios (Austin) means that the actions of a “B-Team” are directly affecting gamers’ perception of the core studio who have been busy working on their next big single player RPG; Starfield. This is of course, Bethesda’s own fault for being misleading about who made 76 before and during its many marketing blunders and anti-consumer decisions.

The result is that Starfield and The Elder Scrolls VI will be immensely crucial in Bethesda’s long road ahead of earning back gamers’ trust and will now likely face enormous pressure paired with already high expectations being set by their fantastical marketing campaigns. However, part of The Elder Scrolls VI’s pre-development phase has already drawn its first controversy before the nearly completed Starfield has even been given the chance to see light of day. Well respected composer Jeremy Soule (credited for Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim soundtracks) has confirmed earlier this week that he has not been asked to return for development of music for The Elder Scrolls VI soundtrack.

Best of Gamescom 2018

As we previously reported, NVIDIA stole the show at this year’s Gamescom 2018 with its next-generation PC Gaming graphics card lineup introducing Real-time Ray Tracing to the industry in what will arguably change the visual standard for decades to come. You can read more about that, watch the clips, and full public briefing provided in our NVIDIA RTX Press Conference WrapUp.

In terms of actual game announcements, this year was a little dry. We suspect a behind-the-scenes focus on the next-generation gaming consoles currently known as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Project Scarlet (names may change closer to their release) have something to do with the lack of major AAA showings. That being said, there was still plenty of closer looks at upcoming titles to get excited about and we’ve decided to cover most of it at once here in this piece.

A Closer Look at The Elder Scrolls: Blades – Pt. 1

Combining hand-crafted and procedurally generated dungeons, ease of use elements and hardcore game design, The Elder Scrolls: Blades is a hybrid game concept bringing a fascinating RPG universe to consoles, computers, and smartphones this year.

In September 2018 The Elder Scrolls will get a brand new entry playable on the go for the first time since Nokia brick phones. With Skyrim now available on Nintendo Switch and a portable version of Oblivion cancelled from back in the PlayStation Portable days, fans have been hungry for more of the unique role playing game’s universe to fit in their pocket. Behind the scenes Bethesda Game Studios is working hard to ensure that they get this right, and it’s not viewed as just a cash-in.
