Elder Scrolls 6 is ‘a very long ways off’

“Release date for TE6 will be 22/22/22”

Skyrim may be getting an updated Special Edition, but the next full Elder Scrolls game — the sixth in the series — is still "a very long ways off," according to Bethesda Game Studios designer Todd Howard.

"I think that’s kind of the elephant in the room, always, when we talk about anything," Howard told host Geoff Keighley on the YouTube Gaming live stream. "I think it’s good in these moments to tell our fans, 'Yes, of course we are [working on Elder Scrolls 6].' It’s something we love. But I have to be careful what I say. It’s a very long ways off. I can sit here and explain the game to you and you’d say, ‘That sounds like you don’t even have the technology, how long is that going to take?’"

The team that created Lords of the Fallen brings us a new take on brutal, third-person combat

Developer Deck13 has never been shy about its intentions with The Surge: This is Dark Souls-style, super-challenging third-person melee combat, but through the lens of a sci-fi setting. So how does that work exactly?

At today's PC Gaming Show for E3 2016, a short, new trailer for The Surge was unveiled to clarify that question. You can see that video for yourself above.

It's called Flesh and Steel mode

Dishonored 2 will allow players to complete the game without using any special powers. The new "no powers" option is called "Flesh and Steel" mode, director Harvey Smith revealed during the YouTube Gaming E3 live show.

Both Emily Kaldwin and Corvo Attano can deny "the gift" offered to them at the start of the game, he explained, which will cause them to not receive any of their trademark supernatural abilities. This option is meant to allow for the two main styles of play: killing everyone or using stealth to avoid fighting enemies directly.

The cult classic returns with impressive castle sieges

The PC Gaming Show unveiled the first ever gameplay footage of Mount & Blade 2: Bannerlord, the sequel to the cult classic. The pre-recorded demo focused on the single-player game's siege gameplay, and promised battles with more than 500 troops at release.

Bannerlord is developed by TaleWorlds Entertainment, a studio based in Turkey that burst onto the scene in 2008 with the release of the original Mount & Blade. Originally published by Paradox, the title was in many ways ahead of its time combining a sophisticated first-person melee combat system with a strategic layer.

Alienware's latest tech shows VR is now as important to it as gaming is

"As important as PC gaming was to our history, virtual reality is to our future. Virtual reality is a factor for every system that we’re designing moving forward and it has been for awhile."

Formed 20 years ago by a pair of friends who loved games and were big fans of The X-Files, Alienware remains a powerful player in the world of PC gaming. Ten years ago, the company was purchased by Dell, but general manager Frank Azor says all that did was allow the company to reach a broader audience and empower its innovation and ability to take chances.

Today, those chief among those experiments are laptops and desktops designed with virtual reality in mind.

Ark: Survival Evolved getting playable animals, more official mods later this year

Ark: Survival Evolved, the dino-survival sim, will expand with new features, biomes and official mods later this year, developer Studio Wildcard announced during the PC Gaming Show at E3 2016.

Players of the base game will be able to explore the Redwood Biome, a new area type based on vertical exploration, where communities will be able to build treetop bases and soar between platforms with tamed pterodactyls and grappling hooks. Players will also be able to discover and tame the Titanosaur, a new dinosaur, and the largest in the game so far. Players will have to knock out the Titanosaur using siege weapons — not narcotics — and will be able to build mobile bases on their backs.

A series of mods will be incorporated into the game in an official capacity later this year, including the Primitive Plus mod, which adds more role-playing features — like deeper trade systems and player-run storefronts — to Ark. That mod will be added to official servers in July. Egyptian developer Instinct Games is also working on an official mod called Ark: Primal Survival, which will allow players to control any animal in Ark, and tasks them with breeding, raising a pack and competing against the island's other inhabitants. That mod is expected to launch later this year.
