Australia Getting Some Bethesda Lovin’

Avatar
By Fr33Lanc3r.00702-10-2013

Bethesda Softworks have announced today the establishment of a new publishing arm in my hometown of Sydney, Australia, which is set to oversee publishing, marketing and distribution across Australia and New Zealand. Citing the growing Australian market and the company's commitment to the Asia Pacific region as reasons for the establishment of the Sydney office. Bethesda have decided to appoint Simon Alty as the managing director of the new office. Alty previously served as the Managing Director of One To Another Pty Ltd, the marketing firm which handled all of the local game launches for Bethesda previously.

After all the studio closures, fighting for an R18 rating, and generally just getting messed around by both the government and games industry, it's nice to see Australia getting something, even if it's just a distribution arm. Hopefully this'll lead to bigger and better things from more developers and publishers for us here in the Great Southern Land.

@Bobfish Since the games they publish here have a diffente steam code as that of the ROW versions (resof the world) even if it was gifted it would not work i belive. So if i wnat the Dishonored DLC's i need to buy the game again on steam even tho i have it on steam.. same with Rage. Or buy the DLC retail, wich is expensive as hell, exp for Rage, we have no means to get those, can even buy the game itself from steam. Lucky for us, Skyrim opened up, and we can buy the DLC's for that. The other games wont change i belive.

Not sure what to think about this....oh hey, maybe they'll develop a game based in the great outback where you explore the likes of Sydney or Melbourne as a Roo?

Damn. What if they picked up some of the devs from Team Bondi? And maybe grabbed the rights for Whore of the Orient?
