Bethesda had a great conference during E3 – although it had said that Elder Scrolls 6 and Starfield wouldn’t be discussed during the presentation. It did unveil a lot of details about Fallout, Doom Eternal and Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
Fallout 76 might not have received good enough reviews from players, but the developers at Bethesda are trying to tweak and improve the game over the last few months to make it more exciting and much like the previous Fallout games.
The updates to Fallout 76 showcased in E3 are the introduction of a new battle royale game mode called Nuclear Winter and a free Wastelanders upgrade, which will add human NPCs to interact with, a new main quest with a related storyline, and new weapons and gear.
The Elder Scrolls series
With Elder Scrolls VI not coming in the following years, and Elder Scrolls V being left out in the Bethesda E3 conference, the series is only alive due to the spinoff games such as The Elder Scrolls Online, Legends, and Blades. This E3, all these games received updates for what is to come.
The Elder Scrolls Blade will spread out to Nintendo Switch this Fall, and will also include cross-play with mobile versions of the game. Elder Scrolls Legends, which is a collectable card battle game, will get an update in June. The Elder Scrolls Online will get a DLC update called Dragonhold which will open new dungeon content.
The Outer World
Although not much is known about The Outer World, other than the fact that it is situated in a space society, and that it feels like Fallout: Las Vegas set in the outer world, Bethesda did reveal the release date of this game, and also a trailer for the game, which tells us slightly more.
The release date is October 25, 2019! Fans are hyped about this game, probably because it is backed by Obsidian Entertainment and the creators of the Fallout series.
Bethesda revealed the release date of Doom Eternal, which is November 22, 2019. The game will be releasing on Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Xbox One and Windows. During the conference, Bethesda also dropped a lengthy trailer for the game. This trailer tells the story after the 2016‘s Doom. There’s also a collector’s edition of this game, which will include the Doom Slayer’s helmet.
Also during the Doom Eternal talk, Bethesda teased a new mode called Battle mode. This mode will pit two spawning users controlling demons against a tricked out human Doom Slayer. More about Doom Slayer will be released at QuakeCon this summer, which Bethesda’s Pete Hines said will be called DoomCon, in honour of the game’s 25th anniversary.
This new game from Machinegames will take place in Paris in the year 1980. Youngblood is an alternate history game in which the Nazis won World War II. Bethesda released a game trailer for the game during their E3 conference.
Bethesda’s conference also talked about games with other developers such as Commander Keen, Ghostwire: Tokyo and Deathloop. Although fans thought Bethesda’s E3 show was slightly muted considering the ignorance of major game titles, the released trailers did liven up the show a little.
