Elder Scrolls Online News - Bethesda has obviously been taking note of Activision, EA and Ubisoft and their collective commitment to almost exclusively developing online multiplayer "games as a service" titles. During last night's Game Awards, Bethesda teamed up with voice actress (and former Wonder Woman!) Lynda Carter to throw serious shade at other publishers and vow to #SavePlayer1.

    They can start by releasing fully tested products.

    Are single player games really in trouble? I'm not really seeing it.

    There's more single player games coming out constantly that I want to play but can't possibly find the time to play.

    This is cool. With the massive shift to 'games as a service' it's nice to hear the commitment to single player games that don't make me register for an account, always sign in, be bombarded with MT offers, etc...

    I do think it's funny to donate more money to scholarships to equip kids for a over saturated career with massive job insecurity from constant layoffs and industry shake-ups.

    With the sad state of the MMO genre atm it's a +1 for more single player games.

    Well, I think the percentage of singleplayer games have gone down a bit the last few years but there is still plenty of them so there is nothing really to fear.

    It is worse with MMOs sadly, particularly from western publishers.

    I don't think there is a lack of single player games today, just a lack of quality single player games. Hell I tend to play MMO's as single player games today a good bit. Actually I think the amount of games is larger today than it was 10 to 15 years ago. The problem is most all of them are total crap or cash grabs. You can look at a platform like steam and see this today. If you were to actually go thru the games there are tons of them, the problem is finding the ones that are worth while, while going thru the trash.

    Teamed up? Linda Carter is married to Robert A. Altman the chairman and CEO of ZeniMax Media the parent company of Bethesda Softwork.

    Also, where is my single player Elder Scroll VI and why are there lockboxes in ESO ZeniMax?

    It is not a coincidence that the only company/ies claiming that single player is dead haven't made a good single player game in years.

    Make a bad game, then don't complain that it isn't selling.

    Anybody who doesn't worship Lynda Carter should have their head checked. LOL. Seriously, she is a goddess. If she's backing something, you know damn well it's a good thing!

    Why is this posted with "Elder Scrolls Online" tag?

    Bethesda HATES both ZoS (which they are constantly pleading to Zenimax media as a divison they want to shut down) and ESO as being too expensive to keep running

    Is general public not aware of the arch-enemy infighting between Bethesda and ZoS? I mean youd think that these 2 studios were not under the same parent company because the hate is real.

    Bethesda is a single player game studio, thats what they do - and their studio head hates online gameing which he has described as a waste of money.

    So Bethesda tooting a single player horn and hating on MMOs... heh whats new?

    Single player games better not be going anywhere. While I do sometimes like multiplayer games there are just some games that need to remain single player.

    Wait, we're talking about Bethesda "saving us"from gaming as a service with single player games?

    Same company that makes Fallout 4 which has like 7 DLC modules, a season pass, and a modding tool they sell you.

    That Bethesda?

    You think they've gone down, or you know they have? I mean you're guessing here, so based on what?

    How is it worse with MMOs? We've had expansions and updates for most every MMO this year. DDO just released an xpac, EQ2, LotRO, ESO, Wildstar, and more.

    Check this link out and scroll back through the page history to see what has been released this year. http://store.steampowered.com/tag/en/Indie/#p=0&tab=NewReleases

    You would need to qualify why it is a bad year for MMO. If you expected several new games like vanilla EQ then it was horrible year for you. In other news the Yugo fan club also found it a disappointing year for new automobile releases.
