Bethesda Wants To "Save" Single-Player Games With Their New Campaign

A place where you can go to escape the vicissitudes of everyday life.

Unlike many big-name publishers, Bethesda's games are often more focused on single-player.

Those poor, poor single-player gamers.

Once upon a time, these solitary experiences dominated the gaming landscape.

During this year's The Video Games Awards event, Bethesda presented a video in which it clearly stated that it will keep making single-player games. But never fear! Bethesda is here to help.

In an ad that ran during The Game Awards 2017 on Thursday night, Bethesda Softworks invoked the power of Lynda Carter (of classic Wonder Woman fame) to remind people that it made a lot of single-player games this year. 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. So be sure to join in the fun with the hashtag: #SavePlayer1. As such, players will be able to purchase all of Bethesda's latest single-player games at attractive prices.

Bethesda also announced that it will donate $100,000 to the ESA Foundation to help fund scholarships for future developers, "who might one day make an wonderful single-player game that you'll love".

Bethesda has pledged to "save the single-player gamer" in the midst of the ongoing EA controversy, with the company staging a big sale of its single-player games along with investing in the future of game development.
