Quake update 1.7 Beyond Belief

The re-release of Quake has received a new 1.7 update on Switch, and it includes the Beyond Belief add-on.

Beyond Belief was first released in 1997 and was one of the game’s earliest mods. According to Bethesda, “it gained notoriety for its tough-but-fair gameplay and skillful difficulty curve”. The add-on is an eight-map adventure for all players to explore for free.

In an unexpected move, it seems like the Anniversary Edition of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has just been made available to players via the Switch eShop.

While the game had previously been rumored to come to Switch, with a rating for it popping up recently in both Europe and Taiwan, this is still a bit of a sudden release. Regardless, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition seems to be currently available for purchase in all regions, with the option for players to either upgrade from an existing version of the game or purchase a bundle with the base game and Anniversary content both included.

Here is a very brief blurb from Bethesda’s website regarding the content featured in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition:
