Bethesda Clarifies Which Achievements Carry Over From Fallout 76's Beta

The Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. (Break It Early Test Application) allowed players to carry their progress into the game which was set to release tomorrow (but had a stealth launch). Unfortunately, not every achievement makes that transfer. Luckily, Bethesda VP Pete Hines took to twitter to explain how to gain achievements and trophies after launch.

The essential problem that beta achievements don't official register. In order to collect those trophies, you have to replay certain sections with a new character. All progress, like experience and weapons, will carry over to the launched game. 

Fallout 76 is out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A large day-one patch addresses the problems players ran into during the beta. We spent three hours exploring the B.E.T.A. for Bethesda's online multiplayer. Here is what the world looks like in action.

Fallout 76 Is Now Live And Playable

Bethesda Softworks' open-world multiplayer experiment, Fallout 76, was set to go live at midnight tonight, but the game is already live and players around the world are diving into its post-apocalyptic world.

We've tested a standard retail disc and were able to play, and a number of Twitch streamers are also showing off their playthrough. Online stores still list Fallout 76 for pre-order, but if you got your copy early somehow (as some people on Twitter have reported) then you should be able to start playing today.

PUBG Coming To PS4 In December

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is coming to the PlayStation 4 next month, confirming earlier reports that the PC and Xbox One game was coming to Sony's console.

The game is available in several incarnations. The Looter's Edition sells for $30, and it includes the base game. For $50, players get the Survivor's Edition, which includes the base game, 2,300 G-Coins, 20,000 BPs, and the Survivor Pass: Vikendi, which unlocks additional in-game rewards. Those who spring for the $60 Champion's Edition get everything from the Survivor's Edition, but 6,000 G-Coins instead of 2,300.

Physical Release Of Hollow Knight Cancelled

Physical Release Of Hollow Knight Cancelled

A few months ago, Team Cherry announced that bug-based Metroidvania Hollow Knight would be getting physical versions on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch. The game was already available on their respective digital stores, as well as PC, but a retail version puts the game on store shelves and lets collectors put something on their own shelves at home. Unfortunately, it seems this is not to be any longer.

Late last week, Skybound Games announced on Twitter that the physical release of Hollow Knight would be cancelled, though did not give any reasons why.

We are saddened to share that we’ll no longer be working with @TeamCherryGames to bring #HollowKnight to new platforms. We absolutely love the game and wish Team Cherry continued success. We look forward to seeing what’s next for them. pic.twitter.com/Cyp9tniGKu

Five Nights At Freddy's Still Getting Console Ports And Possibly AAA Game

Five Nights At Freddy's Still Getting Console Ports And Possibly AAA Game

It seems like only yesterday that people online were asking each other if they had yet played this weird new indie game called Five Nights At Freddy's. The horror game about animatronic robots has spawned around eight different games since 2014, two novels, multiple toy lines, and an upcoming feature film, partly due to its popularity among streamers. There's still life in the series yet, though, as creator Scott Cawthon explained in a lengthy Steam blog post.

In the post, Cawthon details progression levels on pretty much every project in the Five Nights at Freddy's universe, both announced and unannounced. For the movie, Cawthon admits he threw out the original script and penned one he's happier with, which has delayed production on the movie. He is also around 40 percent complete on the VR game, which resembles the repair portion of Sister Location.

Cawthon also confirms that the console ports of the games are still in the works. This confirmation is important, as they had at one time been cancelled, with Cawthon citing "a bad deal" as the reason. He confirms that the ports will be coming to PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and mobile before too long.
