Fallout 4: Not Coming at Quakecon; And Likely Not at Gamescom

Fallout 4 has been the subject of rumors and outright hoaxes in recent months, and Bethesda has remained mum on the game.

It also appears that the game won’t appear at QuakeCon 2014–which Bethesda is essentially overseeing, according to Cinema Blend.

However, Doom 4 will finally revealed at the event, which started Thursday.

A few months ago, Pete Hines–the main spokesperson for Bethesda–essentially said to stop asking about Fallout 4.

“I don’t reallly pre-announce our announcements. 2) BGS will not be talking about its next game for a long time,” he tweeted.

He added: “Dear Fallout Fans: Please select a new fan spokesperson. This one is mean. Sincerely, Pete “the $&^€” Hines.”

Bethesda, however, will be making an “action-adventure & RPG”-related announcement at Gamescom convention in August. This has led to speculation that it might be another “Fallout” game.

Gamescom will take place August 13 to August 13 in Cologne, Germany.

 

AP update: Amazon rolls out ‘Netflix-for-books’ style service  

NEW YORK (AP) — Amazon is rolling out a new subscription service that will allow unlimited access to thousands of electronic books and audiobooks for $9.99 a month in the online giant’s latest effort to attract more users.

The largest U.S. e-commerce site said Friday that the Kindle Unlimited service will give users the ability to read as much as they want from more than 600,000 Kindle titles such as “The HungerGames” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid.” They can also listen as much as they like to thousands of Audible audiobooks, including “Water for Elephants.”

The service will offer about 2,000 audiobooks from Audible with Whispersync for Voice, which lets users switch between reading and listening to books. Subscribers will get a free three-month membership to the broader Audible service, which has 150,000 titles.

Amazon is offering a free 30-day trial to entice users to try the service. The move is a switch from Amazon’s latest efforts, which have largely focused on adding services to its Prime loyalty program. The company has recently launched a video streaming box and grocery delivery service, unveiled plans for a smartphone and expanded its Sunday delivery service, all for members of Prime. But Kindle Unlimited is for anyone with a Kindle device or app.
