Watch The Warcraft Teaser Trailer Days Before The Full-Length Version

Teasers for trailers are all the rage these days. With the hotly anticipated full-length Warcraft trailer slated to release this Friday, eager fans can hold themselves over by watching this 15-second teaser.

Despite its brevity, the teaser shows a surprising amount of what looks to be a beautifully realized Azeroth, including the Horde army and a couple of fantastical creatures. Those who prefer a more static preview can take a gander at the film's new theatrical poster.

Another Vault Boy Bobblehead Line Shows Off Your Favorite Skills

Another Vault Boy Bobblehead Line Shows Off Your Favorite Skills

Last week, Bethesda revealed a line of 7-inch Vault Boy bobble heads representing some of the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats. Perhaps you need something a little smaller or prefer to show off your play style.

There’s another line of bobbleheads that let you tell all who visit your desk that you love your energy weapons, picking locks, or smacking people with a wrench. Sorry, that’s the repair bobblehead. My mistake (or is it?).

You can also get smaller versions of the strength, perception, and endurance stats. The 5-inch figures retail for $15 on the Bethesda Store website. The 7-inch bobbleheads are $20. Both series are set to ship in the next week.

Text Your Fellow Wastelanders With This Fallout Emoji App

Text Your Fellow Wastelanders With This Fallout Emoji App

War may never change, but that doesn’t mean you have to keep using the same dull pizza emoji to order your lunch. Bethesda has teamed up with Apple and Android to create an official Fallout emoji app.

The Fallout C.H.A.T. (or “Communication Hub And Transmitter”) app lets you pick from one of dozens of custom Fallout emojis or gifs to insert into your message. Examples include a grimacing super mutant face, a superhero Vault Boy fending off explosive debris, and Fallout 4’s dog companion in a fetching bandana and goggles combo. You can send actual words, too, formatted to look like in-game text. In total, there’s more than 60 emojis and gifs. No word on what happens when you send the Nuka Cola emoji to Target, who’s partnering with Jones Soda to sell an official Nuka Cola Quantum drink on November 10.

The Fallout C.H.A.T. app is available worldwide for free on iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.

Fallout 4 Development Began By Porting The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim To Xbox One

Fallout 4 Development Began By Porting The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim To Xbox One

At the tail end of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's development, Bethesda Game Studios was already hard at work on Fallout 4, even without knowing the specs of the hardware the game would release on. Microsoft and Sony communicated closely with Bethesda about the plans for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but Bethesda didn't want to rush ahead and make Fallout 4 a launch title, a break in tradition as The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind and Oblivion were both launch window titles.

Bethesda instead viewed a longer development time frame – one that allowed the team to properly gather data before starting development on the new hardware. When I visited Bethesda Game Studios last month, Todd Howard and other key members from the development team walked me through Fallout 4's creation. Early on in our talks, Howard smiled at me and said, "The first thing we did was port Skyrim to Xbox One." After a brief pause, he quickly blurted out, "Don't get your hopes up yet."

This was strictly an exercise that allowed the team to understand the new hardware faster. Although Howard implied there's a chance of Skyrim coming to Xbox One with his "yet," I was led to believe there wasn't anything brewing at the moment.

Ms. Pac-Man Going Under The Microscope At GDC

about X hours ago from

Ms. Pac-Man was the wildly popular sequel to an early arcade sensation, and it's the subject of a postmortem talk at next year's GDC.

The game didn't start as an officially sanctioned sequel. It began as an add-on kit for arcade operators looking to extend the lifespan of their Pac-Man arcade machines. That game – Crazy Otto – so impressed arcade giant Midway that they licensed the game and retooled it as Ms. Pac-Man.

Steve Golson, the game's designer and engineer, will be at GDC further discussing Ms. Pac-Man in depth. The event is being held from March 14-18 in San Francisco.

December Cover Revealed – Quantum Break

about X hours ago from

Remedy has a history of creating story-focused action games that play with television’s storytelling format. With Quantum Break, the studio has gone all out, creating a professional-quality, live-action show that will be bundled with the game. The process hasn’t been easy, but for a studio looking to rewrite the rules of video game storytelling, Remedy wasn’t expecting anything less. Since the game's announcement in 2013, we've seen bits and pieces about the game and its show, but in this issue of Game Informer we finally explain how both pieces fit together and break down exactly what players can expect from the final product.

After Jack Joyce and his childhood friend Paul Serene get caught up in a time-travel experiment gone wrong, they both acquire time-manipulation powers. Unfortunately, that same experiment has created a fracture in time that threatens to bring time to a complete stop. Jack’s friend Paul jumps into the future seeking safety, only to emerge moments later as a much older version of himself who has become far more sadistic. Now, Jack must use his time powers to confront his friend and look for a way to fix time before it completely unravels.
