Bethesda: ‘We Have To Change How We Approach Single-Player Games’

Published

Bethesda

Although Bethesda Softworks continues to be one of the greatest proponents of single-player games in the AAA arena, the publisher believes it needs to adapt its approach to such projects.

Speaking to The Guardian recently, Bethesda’s senior vice-president of PR and marketing Pete Hines first reiterated that the publisher remains dedicated to the format, saying “it’s part of who we are, and we still think there’s room to be successful.”

That determination, he said, is evident in the ‘Mooncrash’ update for Prey, as well as the upcoming single-player-focused sequels of RAGE, DOOM, and Wolfenstein. However, Hines also noted that the approach to such developments needs to change with the times:

“That doesn’t mean that we should keep doing things the way we did five or ten years ago—we’ve got to continue to change how we approach it.”

Unfortunately, Hines did not go into further detail about the forms those changes might take. Nevertheless, the aforementioned games may indicate some methods, as ‘Mooncrash’ introduces procedural generation for endless replayability and Wolfenstein: Youngblood will feature co-operative play.

The opening movie for Bandai Namco’s survival strategy game, Digimon Survive, has been released.

The opening was first shown exclusively at the “Future of Digimon” panel at Anime Expo 2019 back on July 6. The opening shows an earthquake that has hit Kanobe City, as well as some ominous red eyes (presumably Digimon) surrounding an old man in a forest. Near the end, the main character, Takuma, sees a mysterious silhouette of a girl, and the opening finishes with her singing.

Digimon Survive follows Takuma and his companion, Agumon, as they make decisions to stay alive and escape a bizarre dimension.
