Bethesda & Lynda Carter Throw Shade at Other Publishers & Vow to #SavePlayer1

Bethesda & Lynda Carter Throw Shade at Other Publishers & Vow to #SavePlayer1 - MMORPG.com

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 step up to the plate to "Save the Single-Player Gamer". Carter has provided voice acting across several Bethesda titles.

Gaming, like life, is often about social interaction – a time to join with others in a common cause, or to simply exorcise a few demons with some cathartic virtual carnage. But sometimes you just need a little time away. A place where you can go to escape the vicissitudes of everyday life. And that’s where a great single-player game comes in.

Once upon a time, these solitary experiences dominated the gaming landscape. But in recent years, with multiplayer on the rise, single-player games have become fewer in number. Meanwhile, the community has been clamoring for more single-player games, and the media has penned a panoply of pieces bemoaning the loss of single-player experiences. But never fear! Bethesda is here to help. In a new video that debuted at The Game Awards, starring none other than Lynda Carter, we share our vision for saving the single player.

So whether you pick up Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, The Evil Within 2, Prey, Dishonored 2, DOOM, Fallout 4: Game of the Year, Skyrim Special Edition – or all of the above – rest assured that Bethesda has you covered with a critically acclaimed, award-winning single-player game that’s just what you need.

In the coming weeks, we’ll also be sharing your stories about single-player games on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and more. So be sure to join in the fun with the hashtag: #SavePlayer1.

All of Bethesda's games are now 50% off, both digitally and physical editions at select retailers. That's a lot of single player happiness at a great price and just in time for the holidays too when you can work to convert those who've never enjoyed the thrill of a great single player experience.

This comes hot on the heels of Blizzard also dissng EA when Starcraft 2 went free to play earlier in November.

In addition, Bethesda has also donated $100,000 to the Entertainment Software Association Foundation to provide scholarships to increase diversity in games development. "Perhaps one of these future developers will make a single-player game that you'll love too". You can learn more on the ESA Foundation Scholarship page.
