Wow! Bethesda had an amazing conference that included a Doom 2016 sequel, more news about Fallout 76, and the announcement of Elder Scrolls VI. Down below you can find everything they announced as well as trailers. I personally cannot wait for the new Wolfenstein game.
Rage 2 was shown off in greater detail than the announcement trailer. I thought it was pretty great that they referenced the Walmart CA leak that prompted the early reveal in the first place. It will be releasing in the spring of 2019.
The Elder Scrolls Legends card game will be coming to Switch, Xbox One, and PS4 later this year. I'm kind of burnt out on the whole CCG trend, but this seems like a decent option if it is your thing.
Fallout Shelter was released the night of the conference for Switch and PS4. This is similar to how last year it was released the night of the convention for iOS.
Doom Eternal was announced as the sequel to Doom 2016 and it promises to have twice as many demons as well as showing us hell on earth. More of the game will be shown at QuakeCon in August. I cannot wait to see how this turns out as Doom 2016 is a fantastic game that you should really check out if you have not yet.
Good news for Prey fans as it's receiving a new game and survival mode as a free update. It's also getting a new paid DLC called "Mooncrash." The best part? All of that was released the night of the conference! Also to come is a competitive mode called "Typhon Hunter" that pits one human character against five players controlling Mimics. Typhon Hunter will be a free update for owners of Mooncrash this summer and will also be playable in Virtual Reality.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood was announced and will be starring BJ Blazkowicz’s twin daughters. It'll be set in the '80s and can be played in co-op or single player modes. I am really excited to see co-op being added as the previous Wolfenstein games have not included it. Wolfenstein: Youngblood will be released in 2019.
Fallout 76 was shown off in much greater detail and had a gameplay trailer. One thing that bothered me is that it'll be an always-online game so even though you can play the entire game by yourself you have to be online. That aside, it looks like a ton of fun and I will definitely be playing this.
The Elder Scrolls: Blades was announced and it promises to be a traditional Elder Scrolls experience on mobile devices. I thought it was pretty neat that it can be played in portrait mode or landscape mode as not many mobile games offer that choice. It'll be a free game, and you can pre-register now for some goodies in-game. The game is coming in the fall to Android and iOS.
Starfield was announced in a teaser trailer, but there wasn't really any info given for it.
The Elder Scrolls Online is getting a new DLC called "Wolf Hunter" that's all about werewolves, and it will also be getting a story DLC called "Murkmire" later this year. If you happen to game on Xbox One, The Elder Scrolls Online Tamriel Unlimited just got added to Xbox Game Pass, so this might be a good time to jump in.
Prey is not the only game getting a VR experience as Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot was announced as a standalone game in the series. Todd Howard and the Bethesda team were great sports throughout the conference as they were able to poke fun at themselves for things they have done in the past. The highlight of this was a hilarious joke trailer for "Skyrim: Very Special Edition" starring Keegan-Michael Key that you can actually play right now on Amazon’s Alexa.
Last but not least we end on a high note with the reveal fans have been waiting years for. Elder Scrolls VI was announced in a short teaser trailer. I am so happy that this finally got revealed and I am sure countless numbers of fans are as well. You can view the trailer below.
Thanks for reading the article! Bethesda's conference blew me away and is easily my favorite one so far this E3.
