Bethesda’s E3 2017 Roundup
Finishing up the second day of press conferences, Bethesda had a short press conference centered around their amusement park persona, “Bethesdaland”.
The first Bethesdaland reveal was their foray into VR, with new trailers for Doom VFR and Fallout 4 VR, both ports for the Vive.
They went on to announce the “Creation Club”, a service for modded content for Skyrim and Fallout 4. The club will feature weapons, armor, outfits, accessories, and crafting and house features. These creations will be made by Bethesda and outside developers, “working hand in hand with Bethesda”, so the content should be fully compatible. Creation Club content will be available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Next, Bethesda announced a Skyrim expansion for Elder Scrolls Legends, entitled Heroes of Skyrim, which should be out June 29th.
They also provided more details about Skyrim on the Nintendo Switch, which will be amiibo compatible, and allow players to be Link, and incorporate motion controls.
Dishonored 2’s DLC, Death of the Outsider was also announced, with a release date of September 15. The trailer shows new abilities, and hints at a new storyline.
Next, Bethesda announced the Quake World Championships, to be held on August 26th at Quakecon in Dallas.
Bethesda finished up their conference with two new games. The first announced was The Evil Within 2. The trailer shows a ton of horrors, including plenty of corpses and a burning little girl. The game’s release date has been set Friday the 13th, this October.
Bethesda’s last announcement was the previously-teased Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus. The game is set in Nazi-occupied America, and you’ll be playing as firefighter BJ Blazkowicz. It’ll be released on October 27th of this year.
