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

Bethesda is looking to save the single-player gamer with a huge sale

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 awesome single-player game that you'll love".

Wonder Woman's Lynda Carter led the campaign in a hilarious video to show off developer support for bringing gaming back to a focus on the gamers, not just a microtransaction form. With more and more games going the "Games as a Service route" (GaaS), Bethesda has made a trailer that wants to #SavePlayer1 and was rolled out during The Game Awards. Well, Bethesda has created their version of that commercial for the sad and neglected solo game player.

Gaming, like life, is often about social interaction - a time to join with others in a common cause, or to simply exorcise a few demons with some cathartic virtual carnage. And that's where a great single-player game comes in. Well apparently Bethesda and Lynda Carter have your back as the two team up to save single-player games with their new ad. And after the cancellation of Visceral's Star Wars single-player game from EA, a number of gamers may have thought that all developers would follow this path.

Bethesda will also donate $100,000 to the ESA Foundation to provide scholarships for future developers - the talented young people who might one day make new awesome single-player games. So we support #SavePlayer1 and play multiplayer as well. Bethesda's gift is the largest donation in the history of the program, and will fund 33 scholarships.
