Fallout Shelter was released for iOS devices this year on 14 July 2015. The big question for the rest of us since - When exactly is Fallout Shelter coming to Android?
— BethesdaGameStudios (@BethesdaStudios) July 24, 2015
Todd Howard took to the stage yesterday at QuakeCon to finally put us, the eager Android owning fans out of our misery. Fallout Shelter is heading to the Google Play store on August 13th.Click here to read more...
It's hard for me to praise Bethesda as of late without coming across a little too overly loving towards them. It's just under a month ago that I explained how I appreciated how Bethesda schooled the industry with Fallout 4's reveal, and now, well now they are offering Dishonored: Definitive Edition to both Xbox One and Playstation 4 owners who owned the original on either the Xbox 360 or the Playstation 3 at just half price (£15).
The great news?...Click here to read more...

Bethesda officially revealed to the world during part of that killer E3 performance from them on June 14th that Dishonored 2 was coming. We all knew it was coming anyway however given that the previous night Bethesda accidentally leaked it to the world via their Twitch channel.
That is all by the bye now as what's important is that Dishonored 2 is coming and CDKeys are now taking pre-orders for the Steam version at only £23.75.Click here to read more...
It feels a lot longer than only thirteen days ago that I brought you my first impressions of The Elder Scrolls Online. “So far The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimted is more than I expected, exactly what I wanted and hopefully a stepping stone for the MMO genre on console platforms,” I wrote after a few hours of play.
So have my opinions changed? Do I still feel as upbeat as I did when first playing The Elder Scrolls Online and if any, what positives and/or negatives would I most likely feel the need to highlight?

Following on from our story on Saturday it may seem that Fallout 4 director Todd Howard was actually only referring to the Xbox One and Playstation 4 versions of Fallout 4 when he stated "It is 1080p on everything," before continuing to announce that it would run at 30fps and not 60.
Fallout 4 is 1080p & 30fps on Xbox One and PS4. Resolution and FPS are not limited in any way on the PC.
— Bethesda Softworks (@Bethblog) June 22, 2015
Bethesda have today confirmed via Twitter that Fallout 4 on the PC will indeed run with no capping involved on frame-rates stating "resolution and FPS are not limited in any way on the PC."
That's right, Fallout 4 director Todd Howard has announced that "It is 1080p on everything," before continuing to announce that it would run at 30fps and not 60. Mod support has also been confirmed for the PC form of the November 10th release.
Howard was also asked wether we can expect to see mod support make its way to the Playstation 4 platform answering "We will be. Well, we're going to make every effort to. If Sony says no, we won't, but I don't think they will.Click here to read more...
Wow, the press conferences at E3 2015 were some of the best we've ever seen. It's been enormously difficult to find a clear winner between the big guns and the smaller publishers all had some quality games on show. Honestly, we're still recovering from Bethesda's Fallout 4 reveal though.
If you missed the live pressers (because you have a decent sleeping pattern), fear not, we braved the small hours to give your our team impressions from the Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, EA, Ubisoft, Bethesda and Oculus Rift conferences. Take a look at the links below and let us know what has you excited from E3 2015.Click here to read more...
OK. I said only £99.99 but just check out that Pip-Boy!
We learned earlier today from the awesome and pretty much unbeatable Bethesda E3 presentation that Fallout 4 is set for a November 10th release and to be pretty realistic we are looking at around £40 for purchases of the game alone on the PS4 and Xbox One format.
Bethesda revealed the long-awaited Doom reboot during their first ever E3 press conference. Slick and gory, insanely violent and over-the-top, it looks incredible. I am so ready, but then again I would say that.
Most of our regulars know that I used to love id Software with ferocious and slightly creepy intensity. It all started with... well, Commander Keen in Goodbye, Galaxy! if I'm totally honest... but escalated to Doom in short order. Doom was a perfect shooter; slippery-quick brutal corridor brawling that made its action the narrative, relying on incredible level, enemy, art and encounter design to tell its story, and it basically defined the genre.
Unfortunately id found themselves sidelined after the glorious Quake days and never quite recaptured their original brilliance, because they missed the point time and time again. Doom 3 was great but it wasn't really a Doom game until the last few levels, while RAGE was half excellent corridor shooter and half lacklustre phoned-in open world. Now, after dodging a bullet, it looks like id are going back to their roots and doubling down on what they do best.
Namely: corridors full of ravenous demons to kill with shotguns. Let me explain exactly why Doom is the reboot we've all been waiting for with the aid of new footage and screenshots.Click here to read more...
Due to the announcement only being made by Bethesda yesterday there isn't really much we can tell you regarding Fallout 4 apart from the fact we all totally freaked out at the excitement of the reveal.
Don't forget that visit to the CDKeys Facebook page to grab that all important 5% discount code to reserve your copy of Fallout 4 for only £26.59.

The cat is out of the bag. Or the dog, we suppose, as Fallout 4 officially breaks cover for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The reveal surprised no-one whatsoever, but the trailer definitely raised a few eyebrows. Much longer and more detailed than almost any teaser we've ever seen, it gave us plenty to chew over.
In fact, there's even a number of potential clues about what to expect from the game, both obvious and subtle.
Go watch it. Again. Then let's reconvene and compare notes.
No ifs, no buts, Fallout 4 is set in Boston. The rumours were right, seeing as the trailer is full of recognisable landmarks.
The most obvious being Massachusetts State House. See that big gold dome?Click here to read more...
You've all seen the new Fallout 4 trailer right? Go on, we'll wait. Well it's time to gauge the reactions of gamers around the world by examining one of the hottest trending topics we've seen in a while.
Here are some of the highlights expressing everything from raw elation, misgivings about the graphics and speculations about what lies ahead. There's also rather a lot of excitement about the dog too. If you want to see even more tweets, be sure to check out the Fallout 4 hashtag. Stay tuned to Dealspwn too, as we'll be bringing you more on Fallout 4 in the near future along with the best value preorders.Click here to read more...
Fallout 4 has now been officially announced. It didn't want to set the internet on fire, but it started a flame in our heart all the same. Revealing loads of new details in a lengthy trailer, which was much longer and more exciting than your usual garden variety teaser, Bethesda are set to announce the rest of the details during their E3 press conference on June 14th.
We are so ready. Set in the Boston area and promising an enormous new adventure on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, it's already one of the most anticipated games of the new console generation.
So here's everything you need to know, from the trailer to opinion pieces, analysis, reactions and even incredibly cheap pre-order deals. Let's do it.
The announcement of this standalone expansion prequel to last year's excellent Wolfenstein: The New Order was an excellent surprise and the news that it was only going to cost about £15 was even better. Fast forward a few short weeks and you can pick up a copy for about a tenner. You're looking at the best bargain of 2015, folks.
While the majority of the last game was set in the alternative version of the 1960s where the Nazis won WWII, The Old Blood takes place towards the end of the war in the mid 40s. You're attempting to infiltrate Castle Wolfenstein, an enormous fortress built into the side of a mountain. The word 'imposing' doesn't really do it justice as you approach it via cable car.
I'll not ruin any of the main story beats for you, but the pace never slows down to mild crawl that occurred in the middle of The New Order and there's much less chatting, which is what we want really.Click here to read more...
Bethesda are holding their first ever E3 press conference on June 14th, which is bound to have a major Fallout throughout the industry. We expect plenty of new details to Fallout, but whether they Fallout with other publishers or manufacturers in the process remains to be seen.
What game are we most looking forward to? Doom, obviously. Here's what we expect, suspect, crave and desperately don't want from Bethesda's
Fallout 4 reveal show E3 2015 press event.
Show us Fallout 4 or go home.
I say this as both a huge fan of the franchise (Fallout 3 is by far the best game of Generation 7 in my estimation) and a pundit: Fallout 4 needs to be the star of the show. It's probably far too early to reveal The Elder Scrolls VI, so to warrant doing your own press conference, there's only one game that deserves top billing.
After that, it's all gravy, but there are still some major announcements and reveals I expect from the June 14th event.Click here to read more...
That's right. Bethesda are holding their own E3 press conference this year, going up against EA and Ubisoft with a glitzy presentation of their own. It's the first time they've ever done so, meaning that they've probably got something worth shouting about.
There's plenty of potential announcements to pick from, seeing as Bethesda both develop and publish their own games, from Fallout 4 to Doom 4 and Dishonored 2. To that end, here are the games and stories we'd expect to see... and how likely we reckon they are to make an appearance.
As far as I'm concerned, Fallout 3 is the best game of the last console generation. It's certainly one of the biggest and most critically-acclaimed (if also one of the buggiest!), so after the incremental updates of New Vegas, we're desperately in need of a full sequel.
We suspect that Fallout 4 will be set Boston and focus on the MIT. We also suspect -- or should that be, hope -- that it will be formally announced this year. We've been wrong before, but our fingers are so very crossed for this one.

Doom 4 is dead. Long live Doom!
id Software has finally revealed that their long-awaited Doom sequel is actually a full-on reboot that plans to overhaul more than the story. As opposed to a tense horror crawl, our marine sets out on a brutal fast-paced orgy of destruction complete with double jumps, no regenerating health, messy melee executions and slippery combat that harks back to the original classics.
We are, as they say, so ready.Click here to read more...
Do I need to explain what Skyrim is at this point? Suffice to say that this is the Legendary Edition that includes all of the DLC, and it's a smart bargain thanks to GameFly's cheap voucher code price. Thanks to shunts36 @ HUKD!
You'll get a 70p saving and the retail disc version instead of the massive 40GB download - though beware a hefty initial update. Thanks to n707301 @ HUKD!
You can alternatively grab the PS4 edition for £32.95 from TheGameCollections' eBay outlet - thanks oUkTuRkEyIII!
