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.
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 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.
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.
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.
