I keep forgetting about some of the games meant to come out that I have an interest in. Hopefully they will all see the light of my monitor

Thanks. I'd forgotten about Lord of the Rings: Gollum. Strange concept, but I'm curious about how it will turn out - might be interesting.

Not to many RPG's today at Gamescom it seems.

Though I did find this you guys might be interested in.

Bethesda Provides Disappointing Update on The Elder Scrolls 6 - ComicBook
Over on Twitter, Bethesda's Pete Hines confirmed that, more than two years later, the game is still very far away. When asked by a fan about release information for the upcoming Elder Scrolls game, Hines not only confirmed Bethesda has nothing to share, but that it won't have anything to share for a "long time." In other words, two years after its reveal, it doesn't seem like we are all that much closer to seeing more of the next mainline installment in the series.

It gets worse for Bethesda fans though. In addition to The Elder Scrolls 6, Bethesda Game Studios is also working on Starfield, which is expected to arrive before TES6. In fact, there's been some rumors and speculation suggesting the space-faring RPG will be revealed this year. All of this has apparently been nonsense though.

Also on Twitter, Hines confirmed we won't be seeing anything about Starfield this year, however, he did seemingly confirm we will see the game next year, 2021.

ATOM RPG: Trudograd New Content Update Available - Early Access

Trudograd new battle improvements

loading…

Trudograd Content Update

loading…
Greetings, friends!

It’s time to publish ATOM RPG: Trudograd’s newest content update!

This version of Early Access features a lot of additions inspired by your amazing feedback. We added new characters, new weapons, items, animations, locations, quests and random encounter maps.

The combat system was reworked thanks to your suggestions, though some changes are not final. We have reworked large parts of the skill system, too!

We also added effective finishing moves with brutal animations. The traders in the game now have their unique preferences. Two faction based weapon traders were also added.

A lot of work is still ahead of us, but as long as you continue helping us out with your ideas and critique, we’ll push through.

As always, a content patch is soon to follow, and the next big update will come out this Autumn. We will announce everything closer to the release date.

Thank you for your continued support, and let there be ATOM!
Sacred Fire: Psychological RPG - New Release, Trailer, Team and Steam Page

loading…
Dear backers, I hope this message finds you well. I'm very happy to share with you, that we secured the funding to finish the game we originally envisioned in the quality you've seen in the last couple of updates.

After talking to a dozen publishers, looking for someone who respects our creative vision, we partnered up with a privately owned small and indie-friendly label with 10 years of experience, Iceberg Interactive. We took our time and reached out to other developers who worked with them and they come highly recommended. They enable us to make the best possible game and leave us in full creative control.

Is Bethesda even a game company at this point? I don't find them to be relevant at all anymore. When was the last time they made anything worth playing, 2015? That's like 50 years ago in computer age.

I'm personally hoping Starfield tanks super hard and that ESO and F76 die too Maybe then, we'll get TES a little quicker

Ostranauts is the Neo Scavenger folks, I think.

While I'm not part of the lets hate Bethesda fan-club, I agree about them being similar to Bio-Ware nowadays. Basically plenty of other games to play from other developers.

Gone are the day those two were king of the genre. - My opinion not fact.

Yep just with better graphics then Neo Scavenger.

I'm a part of let's hate bugs club, so in this case I have to actually defend Bethesda.
The last product they made has more bugs than everything they've done previously combined. Of course they can't share anything on new games when they're doing bugfixing 24/7 - this time tens of thousands of modders can't help them.

The Bioware point is valid, both RPG developers once, decided mmos are their thing, screw the fanbase.

Lastly, I'll continue to never hear about Ostranauts so I can act surprised when it becomes codex goty.

Riftbreaker, the game with promise… but ruined by its Windows 8/10 requirement At least for me. I just have no desire to upgrade from Windows 7.

Makes sense. Why would you want to upgrade an 11 year old OS?

I've no interest in FO76 or ESO, but I'm hoping Starfield is good. A big budget sci fi RPG(ish) with Bethesda style exploration sounds good to me in principle. Depends what it actually looks like if course.

Yep and it's not going to go away with most newer releases especially for Game Pass games. Sometimes a hack or mod can bypass that requirement but not always.

New info should be released next year. So fingers crossed.

Yeah feels like we've been waiting a long time for it with very little information. Looking forward to the reveal…. hopefully it won't disappoint.

Agreed. That's what I was hoping to get from The Outer Worlds, but the maps were much too small to provide the same kind of exploration you get from a Bethesda game.
