Bethesda Rocked E3 quite literally with a performance from Blink 182, but attendees to the BE3 confrence weren't there to see the aging rockers, or hear from their new album, but to see what upcoming Bethesda Softworks titles we can expect over the next year.
First up was a return to Deathmatch carnage with Quake Champions. Promising multiplayer action that suits all skill levels, and will be available for PC. Details were scarce, with more promised at QuakeCon, which seems appropriate enough. First Person shooter fans were also promised some more Doom action, with improvements to SnapMap, a DLC pack "Unto the Evil", and for those unsure about dipping their toes into Doom, access to the First Level for free this week only.
Arkane weren't set just to impress with November's Dishonoured 2, but also had a new title to tease us with - Prey. This promises to be a reboot of the series, with tests being run on a spacestation being interupted by an extra-terrestrial threat. Fallout's own Chris Avellone is working on the title, suggesting we can expect something great.
We were expecting the next round of Fallout 4 DLC to be shown off, and we were not disappointed. Contraptions Workshop promises the addition of elevators, conveyor belts, and rube goldberg type contraptions on June 21. Budding Overseers will be able to schedule experiments in Vault-Tec Workshop during July, whilst rumoured story-based Nuka-World (add-on) will hit in August and this will additionally allow the player to explore their evil side by raiding the wasteland. Nuka World will round out the DLC available for Fallout 4. Overseers on the go will be excited by the changes to Fallout Shelter, with Quests and PC play coming soon.
Elder Scrolls fans were teased with a brief play-through and cut scene for "Elder Scrolls Legends", a card based game as well as a remastered version of Skyrim coming to the next generation of Consoles.
Finally, Bethesda pulled an Apple and delivered "One more thing" that noone expected - BethesdaVR. Attendees were able to experience Fallout 4's Red Rocket, and Doom on HTC Vive, with a release date of sometime in 2017. Although no other platforms have been announced for Fallout 4 VR, given Fallout 4 was featured in Microsoft's Xbox presentation speculation is rising that it will be on whatever VR system the Xbox uses.
