Bethesda Just Classified A New Unannounced Game Called 'Endless Summer'

We know absolutely next to nothing about this game at this point but the Classification Board has just outed another video game. Bethesda has just classified 'Endless Summer' — a game which is said to feature "strong horror themes and violence". It has been classified at MA15+.

According to the the classification report Endless Summer features high impact violence, but no drug use — which was the issue that initially sunk another Bethesda title, Fallout 3. The report mentions very mild nudity and a mild impact when it comes to sexual themes — but this could mean anything at this stage. We literally know nothing about this game other than the fact that it will most likely be a horror game of some kind.

We've been in contact with Bethesda's local representatives to ask precisely what Endless Summer is but we were informed that no-one would be available to comment at this stage.

It's also worth nothing that publishers often publish games under codenames — which means that 'Endless Summer' may be something else entirely. In fact, if this game is a big deal, it most likely won't be called Endless Summer!

Speculate away!

    Is this the one by the Resident Evil creator?

      I think that's The Evil Within. Never mind. :D

    The report mentions very mild nudity and a mild impact when it comes to sexual themes

    Just wait til modders get their hands on it!

    Interesting, Bethesda 'and' Zenimax are involved in this title. I sense another open-world game? An open-world horror game? That would certainly make things interesting :)

      Given that Zenimax owns Bethesda, it isn't too surprising that they are publishing the title.

      Whoa, that line just brought back memories of Ravenloft. An open world horror game would be awesome.

    Looking forward to more info before I can say anything really.

    The content advice "strong horror" would be how i'd describe the trailer for Enemy Within

    Classified before it's announced? That's particularly uncommon, isn't it?

    Version: MODIFIED.....does this mean they submitted previously and had to change something, or they just changed it themselves before submission?

      It means they had submitted a previous version to the classification board. It may mean that they've censored something, but it could just as easily mean the game was still under development when they initially submitted it and they updated the submission to the final version.

    OFLC still making global press for mistakes lol

    Hi guys. I'm the owner of that said twitter account and i don't think its the evil within because of the following fact

    to get an MA15 rating you need to show the board live in their offices, to do that you need to have the game about 80% finished.

    somewhere in Australia a build of this game exists.

      do you have any proof of that? how do you know it has to be about 80% done to show to a board?

    Lol, at first I thought this was for Bientôt l'été. But that's clearly not made by bethesda. or has anything to do with anything.

    I can't remember the surfing films having any strong violence or horror, except for maybe the snails in Endless Summer II.

    Oh come on, FALLOUT.

      I can see Endless Summer being a code name for Fallout

    Just a general musing - I'm sure an R rating would cover drug use now, wouldn't it?

    My vote's for a surfing horror game. Hell, I'd buy it.

    Sounds like one of those 80s teen drama/comedy/romance/waste of time movies that usually starred molly ringwald.

    Combine that with horror and I'm sold! "Oh sorry molly, did I not run away from the chainsaw wielding maniac quite fast enough? I'd better have another go..."
