E3 began properly this morning with EA, and continued around lunch time for Australians with Bethesda. If you couldn’t catch the conference live, here’s everything you missed.
Expectations going into the conference included a remastered Skyrim for PS4 and Xbox One, something regarding the Elder Scrolls Legends card game, more DLC for DOOM, potentially a sequel to The Evil Within, possibly Prey 2 (but not the Prey 2 that was kicking around a decade ago), and obviously Dishonored 2.
Here’s everything that actually came out.
Damn, this looks real intriguing.
Don’t know that this would convince people to play Fallout 4 again if they gave up. Wonder what those still playing think.
Dishonored 2 also featured greatly and if you were looking forward to it, good news: it’s coming out on November 11. You’ll also get Dishonored: Definitive Edition for a limited time if you pre-order, although most people interested in the game probably already have it in one form or another already.
Oh boy. This is a big one. DOOM’s getting VR support as well, although I can imagine some people finding that harder to stomach. I wonder how the frame rate will hold up?
Skyrim Is Being Remastered For PS4, Xbox One And PC
One of the big expected announcements was a Skyrim remaster, and Bethesda delivered. It’ll be out October 28.
Elder Scrolls Legends is also still a thing! Most people have probably forgotten it by now, but you can sign up for the beta. There was also some time dedicated to Elder Scrolls Online, which has serviced 7 million gamers.
Added bonus is that when the One Tamriel launches in spring, Elder Scrolls Online will have worldwide level scaling. That means every part of the in-game world will scale to your current level, meaning you won’t be restricted by your current level or the dungeons and enemies you encounter. Pretty neat.
Not 100% sure what we’re looking at yet, only that Bethesda wants us to look. Probably find out more at Quakecon.
This dropped during the intro but you needed to pause the stream or catch a still frame to see it. It’s nice to see all the dates line up, but we don’t know 100% if this is another game, DLC, expansion, or what’s going on.
There’s more Pip-Boy replicas!
Fallout 4 is coming to the HTC Vive — but not the Oculus Rift. There’s a reason for that.
