E3 2015 – Bethesda Roundup

So here we are. Post Betheada show, their first ever one and wow what a show it was.

Pete Hines takes to the stage to start things off, he gives a nice intro to the show, and then introduces Marty Stratton to the stage to show off the first ever gameplay of Doom.

I don’t remember the last time I heard crowd reactions like that, especially to executions… It looks awesome though doesn’t it!

Doom is being built on the id tech 6 engine and it’s looking fantastic.

Marty then talks a little bit about the Doom multiplayer which will feature arena style combat and game modes such as domination, freeze tag, annihilation. But there was no mention of beta.

But the Doom awesome doesn’t stop there. No, no. Next we are shown Doom Snapmap which gives players access to create any kind of content they want within the Doom world.

After that we are then treated to our final bit of Doom, which is more gameplay.

Doom will be launching current gen only. No mention of PS3 or Xbox 360.

Pete Hines then returns to the stage to talk about bethesda.net, which sounds a lot like Blizzards battle.net. Where you can access content on all Bethesda games as well as communities and Doom Snapmap.

We then get to see a little more of Battlecry.

You can sign up for the battlecry worldwide beta here.

Harvey smith and Raphael Colantonio the creative directors at arkane studios then take to the stage to talk about… well what else but Dishonored 2.

Set in Carnaca you can play as either Corvo or a new character Emily Kaldwin and as per usual you can play the game without killing anyone.

We also got the announcement of the Dishonored definitive edition, which is basically a remaster, coming later this year.

Now it was time to take a look at Elder Scrolls Online Tamriel Unlimited and all the new content that will be coming to the game over the next year.

Keeping with the Elder Scrolls we then got an announcement of Elder scrolls legends a strategic card game which will be free to play on PC & ipad. But no release date for that yet. I’m guessing it will be similar to Hearthstone.

Finally, the one we’ve all been waiting for FALLOUT 4

Just watch this from here as there is so much shown.

So Fallout 4 will start you off before the bombs drop, and this is where you will get to do your character creation. The nuclear war then breaks out and you retreat to Vault 111 only to return to the surface 200 years later…

Fallout 4 also features huge amounts of customisation from 50 base weapons with over 700 upgrades and combinations to building your very own settlement that you can fill with traders and completely customise your own home. It just sounds incredible.

Then we got to see Fallout Sheltter a mobile game that sees you control, manage and build a vault all of your own.

Personally I think this looks really good fun, plus you can play it now on iOS.

A real pipboy with Fallout 4! Oh hell yea!

Probably the best news of the show was the Fallout 4 will be releasing 10th November 2015! THIS YEAR. Everyone go and get your holidays booked in now.

Well done Bethesda, well done! If all the shows are as good as this one, this will be an amazing E3.
