The Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3 as it is more commonly known, is arguably the biggest event on the gaming calendar. Each year, top developers and studios showcase the products they’ve been working on, sharing with the world what they can expect in the coming months.
Bethesda took to the stage in the early hours of Monday morning (to us Brits, anyway), preparing to showcase what they're bringing to fans in the coming months. Fallout 76 and Rage 2 have previously been announced, but besides those titles we were in for an exciting concoction of surprises.
"Launching in 2019, Rage 2 combines id Software's shooter pedigree and Avalanche Studios' open world prowess to offer players the best of both worlds. As Walker, the last Ranger of the wasteland, you'll traverse diverse landscapes using an array of powerful weapons and unique Nanotrite abilities to defeat ferocious factions, massive mutants, and the oppressive rule of The Authority."
Rage 2 comes out in Spring 2019.
Wolfenstein gets two new games
The Wolfenstein series is stepping into virtual reality.
In Cyberpilot, players take on the role of hackers who can take over Nazi systems and use them against the far-right group.
As well as Cyberpilot, Bethesda announced Wolfenstein Youngblood.
Youngblood is set in 1980's Paris, with players occupying the role of BJ's twin daughters Jess and Soph.
The game is a two-player co-op game set for release on an unannounced date in 2019.
Bethesda announced Doom Eternal, a sequel to 2016's Doom reboot.
Though little was revealed, the game looks like everything you expect from a Doom game.
There will be more information announced at QuakeCon in August.
More Fallout 76
Fallout 76 had its initial announcement during the Microsoft conference
, but more was revealed by publisher Bethesda shortly after.
One of the key announcements made about the game is that it is an entirely online game – although it can be played solo if necessary.
Fallout 76 is being released on 14th November 2018.
The Elder Scrolls 6
The Elder Scrolls 6 was announced, but with very few details.
The game is currently in pre-production, so it may be a while before we see the game in its final form.
Starfield was the closing attraction of the Bethesda conference, and doesn't it look attractive?
Starfield is a sci-fi RPG set in outer space, but there is not much more information available.
What did you think of Bethesda's conference? There's a lot of big names here – Elder Scrolls and Fallout are largely revered by the gaming community and each addition to the series' must be both exciting and nerve-wracking for all those working on it.
