Howard: Bethesda’s Two Large Projects Are “In the Wheelhouse That People Are Used to From Us”

Last year, Bethesda’s Todd Howard revealed that the studio has three longer-term projects in development, two of them are bigger than anything they’ve ever done, and we’ll likely hear about those two games before The Elder Scrolls VI. In a recent interview with Glixel, Howard said the two larger titles are in the wheelhouse of what people expect from them, but they’ll be a bit different: We’ve got a good number of projects on the go. We’re bigger now and we do want to be putting out more stuff. We have two larger projects that are more classically the scale of what we do, but even bigger. We overlap the projects so we’re working on them at the same time, but they’re staggered. I can’t talk a lot about them, but I can say that they’re bigger than anything we’ve ever done. They’re a bit different, but definitely in the wheelhouse that people are used to from us. Speaking with IGN, Howard said they have “seven [projects] going” right now, including a new mobile game, Fallout 4 in VR, and Skyrim for Nintendo Switch. “So some of those things are obviously of different scales,” he added. Howard also spoke with GameSpot, where he revealed READ FULL STORY…

Here’s How Long Prey Will Take to Beat

The upcoming Prey reboot is set to take the sci-fi shooter into an exciting, new horror-filled direction later this year when it releases May 5, 2017. That date isn’t very far away, which means developer Arkane Studios is starting to life the curtain off the game. They recently held a media event where outlets were able to go hands-on with the title (PlayStation LifeStyle’s preview will go up soon), and ask questions about the horror title. One of the interesting tidbits to come out of this event was how long Prey will take players to finish. The game’s lead designer Ricardo Bare told Twinfinite that the game’s length will vary “widely depending on the style of the player,” but that playtests generally took around 16 to 22 hours, with 20 hours being the average. That’s a lot of time for Prey to spook the player, and should please those that were expecting a lengthy title. The game will also feature multiple endings that the player will be able to influence by how they play. “Without giving you spoilers, I would describe the endings as essentially two main branches,” Bare told Twinfinite. “You’re gonna be making some pretty big decisions about the space station and READ…

Doesn’t Sound Like Fallout Shelter Is in the Works for PS4 Right Now

[embedded content] Previously released for iOS/Android devices and PC, Fallout Shelter came to Xbox One and Windows 10 earlier this week. This left many people wondering if it would eventually come to PlayStation 4, but as Bethesda’s Pete Hines revealed on Twitter yesterday, they never actually made Fallout Shelter for Xbox One: We didn’t make it for Xbox. we made it for UWA which runs on a variety of things, including Xbox One. Asked if there was any chance Fallout Shelter would come to PS4, Hines replied, “Dunno. We didn’t make it for Xbox. We made it for universal windows platform, which supports a variety of devices.” Responding to a couple of other questions about Fallout Shelter for PS4, Hines said, “Universal Windows is a MS platform. Runs on devices that support windows 10 and 10 mobile.” Because UWA is a Microsoft platform, “Universal windows app does not include PS4 support.” In one of his final tweets of the day about Fallout Shelter, Hines said he doesn’t have any info “about whether it will or won’t come out to any other platforms.” Would you like to see Fallout Shelter on PS4?
