Here’s everything you might have missed from Bethesda’s E3 conference

3 min read


Welcome to Bethesdaland! Bethesda’s strange E3 event took on the guise of a theme park again – and once again they showed off just a small handful of new and interesting things.

Fallout and DOOM go VR

The first? Fallout and Doom are coming to VR. While we already knew that Fallout 4 was headed to Virtual Reality having seen it last year’s E3, the fact that id’s wonderful DOOM was getting the VR treatment is new. DOOM is coming to HTC Vive and PlayStation VR, while Fallout 4 VR is a Vive exclusive. Neither game is going to the Oculus Rift.

Get creating with Creator’s Club

Bethesda also announced a new Creator’s club, which means that Fallout and Skyrim (and presumably, future games from those respective franchises) would be getting paid mods.

There’s a Legend of Zelda in my Skyrim

Bethesda’s also finally released details on the Switch port of Skyrim, which will now include Amiibo support, which grants users The Legend of Zelda (and possibly other!) skins and weapons.

Dishonored gets some DLC

Dishonored was a fine game when it was first released a couple of years ago, but it was strangely even finer with its range of downloadable content that featured a new assassin under the mask. Duad was his name, and killing was his game as he was forced to deal with all manner of arcania in his own personal quest. Many years later, and it appears that the legendary knife of Dunwall hasn’t lost his edge.

The Evil Within 2 is coming on Friday 13th of October

It was leaked via a reddit ad earlier yesterday, taking the sting out of the announcement, but Bethesda confirmed that Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within would be getting a sequel.

BJ’s back in a Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Only one man stood between a Nazi world and the people suffering underneath the jackbooted heel of this new Reich: BJ Blazkowicz, two-fisted soldier extraordinaire. While BJ may not have saved the day entirely in The New Order, his single act of defiance did light a spark of rebellion. Rebellion which has erupted into a massive flame in Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.

And that was really it. There was some fluff about The Elder Scrolls Legends and Online as well, but not too much else from Beth.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    More Wolfenstein & Dishono(u)red. Good enough for me.

  • BakedBagel

    Fallout4 VR is being sold as a stand-alone R800 game.

    What a damn joke.
    Honestly, if you bought the original you should damn well be eligible to play the VR, dare i say free. If not free ATLEAST at a cheaper price

    • I agree completely.

    • Jim of the Banana

      A stand-alone game? HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH! Oh Bugthesda! Never change!

  • Matthew Holliday

    creation club…
    HAHAHA, lemme get this right, so basically theyr just sticking their hands into the mod honeypot and making you pay for each mod with “credits”?
    I recognized atleast half of those mods… theyr old, like, some of them are REAL old.
    I mean, its cool that the mod makers are getting some kick backs for their work at all, but the rest of the community that have been using the content for free for the past 6 YEARS?

    /me goes off to check what the nexus thinks

    • BakedBagel

      Its paid mods with a micro-transaction flare.

      • Matthew Holliday

        Oh theyr very specific about that, when asked if these were just paid mods, they said “no, its paid content”
        A totally different thing, right?

        • BakedBagel

          I ask them “Did you make this content” ?

          • Matthew Holliday

            You’ll get alot of the royal “we” I think in your answers.
            and stuff like
            “working in tandem with third party developers”
            “all new mods are party to scrutiny and approval by team bethesda”
            “working together step by step”

          • BakedBagel

            Bethesda wont touch my “FULL NUDE SEX” mods in Skyrim.

            I think we cool fam.

          • Matthew Holliday

            CBBE/UNP compatibility mods need not apply eh? 😛

          • BakedBagel

            All its gonna take is 1 armored horse mod for this entire program to become a laughing stock. Its bethesda. It will happen
