Bethesda is doing its own thing again this year and they had the following:
- Quake Champions – A PC FPS game in the Quake franchise. This multi-player focused game looks like ID is trying to get into the Esports as well by bringing back a big name. At least they didn’t make it into a MOBA. More to be revealed this August.
- The Elder Scrolls Legends – This is a digital card game based in the Elder Scrolls universe. Great for those that love card games, means nothing to those like me.
- Fallout 4 – Vault-Tec looks like a sandbox type of area to build and play in within Fallout 4. There is also an update to Fallout Shelter and it is coming to PC.
- Skyrim: Special Edition – Being ported to the current console with graphical upgrades and mod support.
- Prey – A reboot of the classic game set in the near future and in space. Described as a FPS immersive game. Coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
- Doom Updates – New Snapmap and premium content updates. You can also download a demo of the game, first level only, on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
- The Elder Scrolls Online – A bunch of stats and an international release. The Dark Brotherhood DLC releases on console on Tuesday. They also are removing all level restrictions so that any player can go to any content without restriction as soon as they enter the game world.
- VR – Doom will have a VR port, as well as Fallout 4. Fallout 4 will be release for the HTC Vive in 2017.
- Dishonored 2 – Looks good on a graphic sense from what they showed. All the talk about it didn’t bring much together from my viewpoint, even thought it was a fairly extensive presentation. Maybe it would have meant more had I ever played the first game. Release date is set for November 11th.
This show didn’t have a great pace but felt less awkward than EA’s. There wasn’t a lot of surprises here. Maybe Prey was the biggest since most were expecting Prey 2 not a space based reboot.
