Fallout and The Elder Scrolls designer Todd Howard teased three new projects from Bethesda Game Studios during his talk at this week's DICE Summit, saying the in-development titles are different from what the studio has created before.

That said, Howard hinted that the projects likely won't be revealed publicly any time soon.

"We actually have three longer-term projects that are all — we'll talk about them at a much future date — they're different from anything we've done before while also being a Bethesda style game: big and crazy," Howard said, "but in many ways different from what we've done before."

Bethesda is currently working on a trio of downloadable add-ons for Fallout 4 and overhauling the game's survival mode. Changes to survival mode, Howard said, has resulted in "some of the most fun I've had in the game."

While Bethesda is working to expand Fallout 4 over the next three months and throughout the rest of the year, Howard believes players haven't found everything there is to find in the massive open-world game. He said there's something squirreled away "in a terminal somewhere" that he hasn't seen players talk about yet.
