Bethesda Invites Play Testers to Id Software This Week

Bethesda has invited some gamers to play test "one of our games" at Id Software this week.

In emails sent out to players, and captured by Reddit, Bethesda did not reveal which title would be available for participants. You can check out the email below.

All sessions fill up quick, so please reply promptly so you can get scheduled for your preferred time. Requesting to participate is not a guarantee that you will be scheduled. You will receive a confirmation email with directions to the office if you get scheduled for a play test.

We look forward to seeing you in a session.


Bethesda Softworks Play Testing Department

While the play testing is taking part in Id that doesn't necessarily mean the game in question isn't being developed elsewhere in Bethesda Softwork's studios. 

Confirmed titles coming from Bethesda include The Evil Within, Wolfenstein: The New Order, and a "new version" of Doom 4 from Id. There's also been a lot of talk lately of Fallout 4 most of which is likely untrue but we can always hope. There's also the possibility that the game is something else entirely. 

Id was hit last month by the departure of co-founder John Carmack who left to focus on the Oculus Rift. He recently said that it's up to Sony whether or not the sensor comes to the PS4 but Carmack is "not holding my breath".
