About Bethesda

One of the premier creators of entertainment software, Bethesda Softworks has been producing quality games since it was first founded in 1986. As part of the ZeniMax Media family, Bethesda has access to some of the finest engineers, artists, and programmers in the industry. Nearly 100 employees from all walks of life help create and support Bethesda products in its Maryland and Washington State facilities. Working together, they have consistently led the software industry with cutting edge computer programs, engines, and tools.

An industry veteran specializing in state-of-the-art technology, Bethesda has won every major national and international software award for its sports, action, and role-playing games. We are the award-winning creators of three highly acclaimed series: Wayne Gretzky Hockey, The Elder Scrolls, and The Terminator. We produce groundbreaking computer games that redefine industry standards. The first Elder Scrolls title, Arena, received countless accolades as "the new standard for RPGs." Then, Bethesda redefined the standard with Arena's sequel, The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall, which walked away with the "Best RPG of the Year" award from every major print and online gaming publication.

In 1998, we took the motorsports world by storm with the award-winning, best-selling Hot Rod Magazine's Championship Drag Racing, the world's first sportsman class drag racing simulation. Due to high consumer demand for more dragsters and features, we subsequently released the PLAYER'S CHOICE EDITION of Hot Rod Magazine's Championship Drag Racing months afterward to great success.

Bethesda is dedicated to becoming a major force in the gaming community and in the coming months we'll produce titles to prove it. We are redefining gaming by creating whole new experiences on a variety of platforms. In addition to titles for the PC, Bethesda also plans to release titles for Dreamcast and Playstation 2.
