Escalation Studios Rebranded As Bethesda Game Studios Dallas

As he walked out on the Quakecon 2018 stage, Bethesda Game Studios head Todd Howard was immediately inundated with questions.

"I understand you have questions, and demand answers," Howard said. But he wasn't there to shed more light on Fallout 76 just yet – that's tomorrow. Instead, he made a housekeeping announcement about a partner studio. 

After years working with id Software on projects like the 2016 Doom reboot's SnapMap tools, Escalation Studios was acquired by ZeniMax Media, the parent company of Bethesda Softworks in 2017. Now, the studio has been rebranded as Bethesda Game Studios Dallas.

Tactical Shooter Insurgency: Sandstorm Rolls Out This September

Since its days as a Half-Life 2 mod, Insurgency has built a reputation for its hardcore, realistic combat focusing on modern warfare. Players will get the chance to take on the latest entry in the series and put their tactics and twitch skills to the test when Insurgency: Sandstorm launches on September 18.

Developer New World Interactive also revealed there will be two beta events before the game's release. To get into the beta, you have to preorder the game. The first beta runs August 9-August 13 and the second is scheduled to start through weeks before launch, though no specific date range has been given.

Sandstorm Initially was supposed to have a singleplayer component but New World canceled it to focus on the multiplayer core of the game. For more on Sandstorm's beta, you can read New World Interactive's full rundown here, which includes what maps and modes can be played in the beta.

Nintendo Switch Online Launching In Second Half Of September

Nintendo Switch Online Launching In Second Half Of September

Nintendo sent out a reminder today to let people know that the Nintendo Online subscription service still exists, but did narrow down when we can expect it.

The online service for the Switch, which runs about $20 a year for one person or $34.99 a year for a group of up to seven, will be launching in the second half of September. That means the service's launch is a little over a month away. 

The rest of Nintendo's reminders were information we already knew, including that cloud saves are only for compatible games, but Nintendo has not included a list. That might mean it is every game but Pokemon or only certain games like how video recording functions now.

Dragon Ball FighterZ Switch Open Beta Goes Live Tonight

If you have a Switch and haven't gotten a chance to play Dragon Ball FighterZ, or maybe got hyped at the game's recent showcase on the Evo main stage and want to see if the game is for you, Bandai Namco is holding a beta for the Switch version tonight at 9:00 p.m. PDT.

You can go ahead and download the client now and start playing when it goes live. The beta allows both online and local play in the new permutations for the Switch version, like one-on-one and two-on-two. Since the game has long been out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, there's no real reason to limit the roster, so you get access to all the non-DLC fighters in the game.

The beta continues until 12:00 a.m. PDT on August 12. Go get your fill and test out the game to see whether the Switch version has the same power levels as the other console versions. The full version of Dragon Ball FighterZ releases on Switch September 28.
