Bethesda Teams Up With Wonder Woman to Save Single-Player Games

Bethesda is also donating $100,000 to help future game makers.

Are you scared that companies are going to turn their back on single-player games for good? Well apparently Bethesda and Lynda Carter have your back as the two team up to save single-player games with their new ad. Oh, and Bethesda is donating $100,000 for scholarships to help fund future game makers.

In a video that calls back to Sarah McLachlan's animal cruelty PSAs, Lynda Carter of Wonder Woman and various Bethesda voice roles fame, is here to tell gamers to rise up and protect endangered, single-player video games.

Bethesda of course has been pushing single-player content heavily in a year that's seen companies like BioWare, EA, and Square Enix look towards online, games as services as the future of the industry.

To help promote Bethesda and its single-player offerings, the company is discounting its current catalog of games by 50 percent at digital retailers. That means games like Skyrim, Wolfenstein 2, Prey, Dishonored 2, and more are half-off right now.

In addition, Bethesda announced that it's donating $100,000 to the Entertainment Software Association Foundation for scholarships that will go to the next generation of game makers. Despite any misgivings I might have, I really appreciate that Bethesda is putting money where their mouth with its donation, rather than pushing out a meme-ready video.
