Bethesda has announced that they will no longer be providing media organization with copies of their games for review before release.
This new policy, which already affected DOOM earlier this year, is set to be implemented with the release of Bethesda’s two biggest titles releasing this year Dishonored 2 and Skyrim Special Edition.
“While we will continue to work with media, streamers, and YouTubers to support their coverage – both before and after release – we want everyone, including those in the media, to experience our games at the same time,” said the post. “We also understand that some of you want to read reviews before you make your decision, and if that’s the case we encourage you to wait for your favorite reviewers to share their thoughts.”
We at Hardcore Gamer will have our reviews of Dishonored 2 and Skyrim Special Edition as soon as we are able to get our hands on a copy of the games. In the meantime check out the live action trailer for Dishonored 2 below:
