Bethesda has announced the opening of a special pop-up venue during Melbourne International Games Week. Dubbed ‘World of Bethesda’, the space will welcome fans into “the worlds and environments from their favourite past, present and future Bethesda games.”

Opening in the heart of Melbourne, The Dove Club 322 Little Collins Street #Level 2 Melbourne, VIC 3000, ‘Worlds of Bethesda’ will feature ” a Tamrielic tavern inspired by The Elder Scrolls Online, a Reclamation Day dining area inspired by Fallout, a planetary exploration and anti-gravity space room inspired by Starfield, as well as the survivor HQ in the town of Redfall, Massachusetts.”

Those fortunate enough to attend will take some very special souvenirs with them which includes a “super limited edition collectible passport and a goodie bag.”

In addition to the special souvenirs, fans can bring along their Xbox One|X|S controller and have it customised with an airbrush paint job by WeAreRobots. There will also be tonnes of prizes to win including “a custom Redfall & Starfield PC built by AfterShockPC, an ESO Breton Chilly Chest and Starfield merch all available to win across the weekend.”

Fans will also be able to go hands-on with classic Bethesda games with booths open for Skyrim, DOOM Eternal, Fallout 4 and more. Tickets to the pop-up space are free and are available from Eventbrite.

Fans can register to attend any of the eight one-hour sessions from 11am – 4:30pm Friday and 11am – 4:30pm Saturday. The event has been designed with inclusivity in mind, as there will be a 15-18 y/o session for younger gamers, the venue is handicap accessible and there is a sensory sensitive session for those who prefer a quieter environment. Spots are limited and bookings are essential to ensure attendees have ample time to enjoy the full journey.

On Friday 7 October, the ‘Worlds of Bethesda’ will be transformed into an 18+ event with live music, special guests, cosplayers and a Redfall inspired bar.

Simon Alty, VP & Managing Director, Bethesda APAC said, “At Bethesda we have an incredibly passionate fanbase, grown from a love of the timeless worlds explored through our gaming history. Whether you’ve been with us since The Elder Scrolls Arena or became a fan through Fallout, DOOM or even upcoming releases like Redfall and Starfield, we can’t wait to welcome you into ‘Worlds of Bethesda’ and celebrate with you during MIGW.”
