E3 is underway (you haven’t heard?!) and it was kicked off last night with Bethesda’s press conference. Here are some of the highlights from the event:

Fallout 4 Shows Up Again

We already knew about Fallout 4 a week ago because nothing is sacred and developers can’t keep their lids closed until E3, but Bethesda showed off some gameplay of the much anticipated fourth installment of the series. Fallout 4 will herald the return of our love/hate relationship with the VATS system, as well as a new craft system that lets you build shelters, defensive outposts, weapons, and more.

It’s release date is slated for November 10, 2015.

Oh yeah, there’s also a mobile tie in called Fallout Shelter, which, you know, is to be expected, I guess.

Dishonored 2

It’s been almost three years since the original Dishonored brought us a (somewhat linear) stealthy experience, and Bethesda has decided to smile upon us and give us a sequel, aptly titled Dishonored 2. The game will allow you to play as either one of two characters – Corvo Attano and Emily Kaldwin – who will stealth themselves around the coastal city of Karnaca where “the choices you make will have significant impact on the world.” Which can go either way, really.

Doom

You know what’s been missing from game libraries lately? Shooters with big guns. Sure, Wolfenstein: The New Order scratched the itch, but I’m happy to see a reboot of Doom blind us with gore and deafen us with the cries of demon/zombie/aliens. Check out the gameplay trailer:

Elder Scrolls Online – Tamriel Unlimited

If an MMO on the Elder Scrolls series is still your jam, you might be interested in this new Tamriel Unlimited showcase that flaunts some new updates to the game. Nice particle effects.

Battlecry

It looks like Team Fortress 2 with swords.

BONUS ROUND: Elder Scrolls – Legends

Haha, after an Elder Scrolls MMO, what was the next thing on your Elder Scrolls list? A new full game? A Vita port? Even a companion app, maybe?

No! Perhaps because of the popularity of guilty pleasure Witcher 3 distraction Gwent, Bethesda is giving us an Elder Scrolls Card game, called Elder Scrolls Legends!


 

Well, there you have it. All of Bethesda’s highlights in one place. What are you looking forward to most? What do you hope to never hear about again? We want to know!
