Bethesda are having a huge sale on Steam for the next couple of days. Until the end of the weekend, you can pick up the QuakeCon 2012 pack, a huge collection of id software and Bethesda softworks titles for $134.99, which is a massive 74% off. I think I counted about 26 individual games in there, with all their DLC and expansions including Skyrim, Oblivion and Morrowind, Fallout and New Vegas, and basically every Quake ever.
If you’re not interested in picking up the whole deal, Bethesda will be having smaller sales on individual games over the weekend as well, starting with all The Elder Scrolls at up to 66% off today (include Skyrim). RAGE will be 50% off tomorrow, followed by all the Fallout titles, then all Quake and DOOM titles on Monday.
There is a further deal available whereby if you preorder Dishonored at the same time as the QuakeCon pack, you will receive even more of a discount (and Arx Fatalis) but unfortunately that deal isn’t available in Australia yet, as Dishonored has not yet been rated.
As an even further side note, showing up on Steam today is the Skyrim DLC Dawnguard, which was mysteriously dropped overnight without a word of warning or announcement – despite saying less than a week ago that they “had no timeline” for the release.

Well, maybe it was all just hype then! It’s been less than a week since Pete Hines twittered that there wasn’t a timeline in place for releasing Skyrim‘s DLC, Dawnguard on the PC or PS3. Now, in response to concerns that it was cancelled, he’s come to Twitter again to say, “Nothing has been said/announced about it. We should have info later this week.” That sounds more positive than what he said last time – perhaps we’ll be getting it for the PC after all.

Hmm. Remember when Skyrim‘s Dawnguard DLC was announced for XBox 360 and we all assumed that, after an exclusivity period, it would be coming to PC and PS3? Well, turns out Bethesda never actually said it was coming to either platform, only 360. According to the Twitter account of Bethesda’s vice president of PR and marketing, Pete Hines, there is no timeline for the DLC to come to the PC or PS3 and that “if we have news, I promise I’d tell you”.
