Bethesda E3 2017 Press Conference Recap: October is Bethesda Month

BethesdaE31

Well this one was short and not that great aside from two big announcements that actually got me excited.

Let’s get the boring stuff out of way. Bethesda decided to pretend they care about VR (even saying they are at the forefront of it, what the hell?) by announcing Doom VR and Fallout 4 VR. It’s Doom and Fallout 4… in VR. Meaning you’ll have to dish out another 800$ to play them like that. Joy.

Then they talked about The Elder Scroll online, a game I never hear about except at the Bethesda E3 Press Conferences. They showed more of the Morrowind Expansion (which I thought was already out), but I guess it’s out today now. Another game I also only hear about at the Bethesda E3 Press Conferences is the Elder Scroll Legends, the card game. There’s a Skyrim Expansion coming for that one as well. They also showed some of Skyrim on Switch, with a reveal that amiibo, at least the Link one from Breath of the Wild, will be compatible with the game and will give you access to Link’s outfit from the same game, the Hylian Shield and the Master Sword and you’ll only need to use a 15$ amiibo instead of installing a free mod to get it! (To be fair the quality of the item via the amiibo should be better than the free mod.)

Then we got the first big announcement of this very short conference; a story DLC for Dishonered 2, Death of the Outsider. New characters, new story, yet again amazing art design and direction. I need to play Dishonored 2 soon.

They talked about Quake Champions as well, revealing another character, B.J. Blazkowicz from the new Wolfenstein games. The Closed Beta is now online 24/7 and has 3 new maps. They also put up a montage of YouTubers playing with out of sync audio.

Now for the big hitters; Wolfenstein: The New Colossus and The Evil Within 2. Both coming out in October and both revealed with kickass trailers. I haven’t played The Evil Within 1 (and people keep telling me to stay away from it) and I haven’t finished The New Order but I plan to fix both those things at some point before the sequel come out. Pretty nice way to end this short conference.

I like this approach of Bethesda to announce only stuff at their E3 Press Conference that are set to release within the same year. It’s… refreshing. (Glare at Sony and Square-Enix.)
