Veteran game designer and Fallout 4 director Todd Howard from Bethesda Softworks will take the stage at this week's DICE Summit to talk about open-world storytelling and design. If you're not in Las Vegas for this year's DICE, you can catch the conversation in our livestream from the summit above.

Here's the full description of Howard's talk, which starts at 11:35 a.m. PT and is scheduled to run for 35 minutes.

Todd Howard will be joined in conversation by comedian and avid gamer Pete Holmes, the returning host of the 19th D.I.C.E. Awards and creator/star of the upcoming HBO show Crashing. Touching upon topics central to the conference theme - The Art of Engagement - this session will explore open world storytelling and design, the influence of fans on the game making process, how fan communities extend the life of a title through their creations and contributions, how previous games influence design decisions, and more. With Pete as the moderator this discussion is sure to be filled with entertaining moments along with inspiring insight!

Earlier this week, Bethesda announced three add-ons coming to Fallout 4Automatron, Wasteland Workshop and Far Harbor — as part of the game's season pass.
