E3 2017 – Bethesda Conference Summary

Following Microsoft Saturday night (or very early hours Sunday morning for us Brits) was Bethesda. Now it was hard to call what they would be showing as games such as Prey, Dishonored, Doom are all long out. Perhaps a peak at Elder Scrolls or a new Wolfenstein. Either way we didn’t stay up to watch this live as we had work and the only conference I’m staying up for past midnight will be Sony the next day. So we’re a little late with this round up ( as we were last year too ), but here’s what Bethesda’s showed off in their own conference:

DOOM is coming to VR, as if you needed another terrifying VR experience after Resident Evil 7.

We got another look at the Morrowind expansion for Elder Scrolls Online.

Some more VR to come, the massive Fallout 4 is coming out for VR.

The Elder Scrolls card game is getting an addon in the vain of Skyrim.

The Switch version of Skyrim was shown, and it’s got some very special extras for this version. Using the Link Amiibo from Breath of the Wild unlocks the tunic and Master Sword from Breath of the Wild. It also appears the game can be controlled via motion control. I kind of hope for the sake of the game that can be turned off.

Dishonoured is getting standalone DLC by the looks of it, by the name of Death of the Outsider. Out on the 15th of September.

And onto a few new surprises from Bethesda. Evil Within is getting a sequel. Releasing on Friday 13th October. Could it be any more spooky?

The rumoured Wolfestein sequel is real. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus was revealed.

 

 

Not as much detail in the descriptions as our other conferences, but this was a case of browsing to see what was announced and getting this post together reasonably early. I’ve recently completed Wolfenstien: The New Order, and have Old Blood in the backlog to start. Really enjoyed New Order, so anticipating New Colossus.
