Bethesda revealed its plans for the rest of the year in Fallout 76 at a QuakeCon panel Saturday. A new Vault raid is coming next month, followed by a new map for the game’s battle royale mode, Nuclear Winter. Private servers are on the way as well.
The Doom series celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and the latest game in the franchise – Doom Eternal – is due out this November. The series spans numerous games, expansions, and spin-offs, and yet in all that 25 years there has been one gaming feature that none of those games has featured – a hub area.
How long does it take to learn everything about making videogames, come up with an idea for one, and then build it from scratch? The answer depends on the game and who’s making it, of course, but for the developer of Darq, it’s two specific numbers: three and a half years, and around 10,000 hours.

With all eyes on next year’s Marvel’s Avengers game, potentially the biggest Marvel team-up title on PC – if they expand the roster a bit, of course – it’s easy to forget the last major Marvel game on PC with a big cast of playable characters: beat-em-up crossover Marvel vs Capcom Infinite.
You may recall the tale of DoomRL (now known as DRL, thanks to some sternly-worded letters from Zenimax’s legal team), which is a roguelike version of the classic Doom experience.

If you’ve been following Arma 3 over the past couple years, you know Bohemia Interactive has been injecting some non-shooty material into the franchise.

Now, Arma 3 has added another weird wrinkle: humanity’s first contact with intelligent extraterrestrial life.
Everything we’ve heard so far about Dying Light 2 makes the game sound like a quantum leap beyond the already good first game. It’s going to provide a living, changing world; parkour has been improved; factions react to your decisions. Despite being about zombies, it all sounds kind of like, well, a game of the future. It turns out, it is.
One of the first reveals for Doom Eternal at this year’s QuakeCon was a new demon in Hell’s rogue’s gallery of fleshy monstrosities. When Doom Eternal launches in November, players will have their first chance to meet the Doom Hunter, a massive horned monstrosity that skates around on a floating hover platform.
