The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind – Warden Gameplay Trailer

April 18, 2017 – The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind will introduce a powerful new class to ESO on June 6 – the nature-based Warden – and we’re excited to showcase the class’ unique abilities in the new gameplay trailer and screenshots below.

Revealing themselves to the world for the first time, Wardens possess a wide assortment of abilities to help defend the wilds and people of Tamriel. With the versatility to act as a damage dealer, a healer, or protector (or any combination in between) the Warden’s powerful and unique nature-based magic brings an entirely new element to ESO. The Warden can be fully customized based on your choices and your playstyle — summon the fearsome War Bear, encase yourself in rock-solid ice, or conjure healing plants from the soil.

The Elder Scrolls: Legends – The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood Launch Trailer

April 6, 2017 – We’re excited to announce that The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood, the first major new content addition for The Elder Scrolls: Legends, is now available worldwide for PC and iPad. This new story content brings tons of additional missions and cards to the game and returns Elder Scrolls fans to one of their favorite guilds from the franchise – the lethal Dark Brotherhood.

About The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood

The Fall of The Dark Brotherhood is a new PvE Story that tosses players into the role of a double agent hired to infiltrate the ranks of the fabled Dark Brotherhood. Recruited by a sinister group to bring down the infamous Elder Scrolls guild of lethal assassins, players will need to make key choices that both impact which missions they will play and determine how the story unfolds.

This massive new adventure takes place prior to the events of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and is broken into three sections, or maps, introducing more than 25 missions and 40 new cards to the game. By completing missions within the new Story, players will unlock new cards available only via The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood, including three new Legendary cards. Players will face a variety of new challenges, lane conditions, and scenarios as they play through the new Story. There’s a pig you have to keep alive, a fight that takes place during a ball where things keep moving around, a prison fight, a skooma den battle, and much more.

The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood is purchasable in-game as three individual maps or as a bundle for a special price of $19.99 and can also be bought with in-game gold. Those who pick up The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood will also receive the ‘Doom Wolf’ mount for use in the award-winning online RPG, The Elder Scrolls Online (PC/Mac only). For more details about on The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood, including a look at the exclusive cards, please read more online.

The Elder Scrolls: Legends is currently available to download for free on PC via the Bethesda.net launcher, on iPad via the App Store.

Prey – Weapon and Power Combos Trailer

March 28, 2017 – We’ve just released a new gameplay video for Prey – ‘Weapons and Power Combos’ – which shows some of the unique ways you can combine your weapons, tools and abilities to take down the Typhon aliens.

You might be mankind’s last hope aboard Talos I, but you’ve got a mighty arsenal to face down the Typhon threat. Armed with your wits, weapons and a host of incredible powers, it’s up to you to stop the alien invasion and save all of humanity. Piece of cake. With 24 human upgrades and 20 unique alien powers to choose from (plus all of their upgrades), no two Morgans will be the same, and no two players will have the same experiences in Prey. Along with the human abilities like Hacking, Leverage, Repair, and Gunsmith – all of which enhance Morgan’s innate strengths – you will have access to three distinct trees of Typhon-based abilities. Of course, there’s some risk when rewarding yourself with these amazing alien abilities. As you install alien powers, the turrets on the station will view you as a hostile entity, and you will increasingly run the risk of being targeted and hunted by the massive Nightmare Typhon. But with (sometimes literally) mind-bending abilities like these, we’ve got to say the risk is definitely worth it. Check out the full list of alien powers at Bethesda.net and start thinking about who your Morgan will be, and how you plan to fight the invasion and save the world.

Be sure to look out tomorrow for a new video diving into Morgan’s armory as the development team discuss ‘Playing with Powers’, while Thursday will reveal fresh insight into Prey’s mind-altering Neruomod Division.

Set to launch worldwide on Friday, May 5, 2017 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, Prey is the highly-anticipated first-person sci-fi action game from Arkane Studios – creators of the award-winning Dishonored series which includes the 2012 ‘Game of the Year’ and the critically-acclaimed follow-up, Dishonored 2.

Prey has been rated M for mature by the ESRB. For more information about the game please visit prey.bethesda.net.

Quake Champions – Burial Chamber Arena Trailer

March 22, 2017 – We’re back with another sneak peek at one of the incredible Arenas coming to Quake Champions. This week, we’re taking a look at Burial Chamber, a gothic and grim combat space with wicked lava pools, tight corridors, and treacherous open spaces, where no one is safe from enemy Rockets and Rails. Skill is required to traverse this Arena, lest you find yourself tumbling to a molten death. Get your first look at Burial Chamber in this new video.

About Burial Chamber

The bones of a massive beast decorate the entry to this massive tomb. Hazardous platforms at the Perilous Outcropping dot the sea of lava, providing an ideal sniping spot for those skilled enough and brave enough to make the leap. With its winding tunnels and low ceilings, the claustrophobic grave sites of the Molten Underground offer up the opportunity for heavier Champions to do some serious splash damage, while the Lava Falls could provide an excellent chokepoint for skilled tacticians. Just be careful to avoid being pushed into the lava, which is a prevalent threat throughout the map.

**REMINDER: Sign-ups are now open for the Closed Beta, expected to launch in the coming weeks, at the game’s official web site: www.Quake.com.

When you awaken aboard the Talos I space station, you that find you are the key subject of an experiment meant to alter humanity forever – but things have gone terribly wrong.
