Bethesda had their E3 conference and it was certainly a unique one

It opened with the employee’s kids talking about their parents job making games. This was a cute video.

 

 

We had a an introduction to Bethesdaland and the mostly prerecorded footage.  This was the theme of the event and it really created a good mood.

 

Bethesda started about games proper with their Virtual Reality projects with Doom VFR announced and Fallout 4 VR announced

 

Next, they discussed Elder Scrolls online. The game has 10 million players, and they talked about the Morrowind expansion. They showed a video montage of players with the game before showing upcoming content with “Horns of the Reach”  and “Clockwork City”.

 

They then went on to discuss how modding has been big for their games. There have been 300 million mod downloads and now they are shaking up mods with the announcement of Creation Club.  A new way to get mods which won’t interfere with achievements and are higher quality. This is coming summer 2017, but may involve paid mods

 

Speaking of Elder Scrolls, the next subject was Elder Scrolls Legends. Content like the Dark Brotherhood story and more was discussed with the main focus being the reveal of the Skyrim expansion. Titled “Heroes of Skyrim” it releases 6/29/17.

 

And on the subject of Skyrim, we finally got a true look at the Switch version. It looks like a well-made version and has something surprising. Amiibo support. This includes all the Zelda amiibo ever released and the Smash Bros amiibo. There are also motion controls but no word on HD rumble.

From there, we moved to a new Dishonored II expansion being shown. In this, Daud is back with Billie Lurk in Dishonored Death of the Outsider.

Next Bethesda announced the Quake world championships and revealed BJ Blazkowicz for Quake champions.

 

Last up were two new reveals, with The Evil within 2 announced for  Friday, October 13 release.

 

and Wolfenstein 2 the new colossus was officially announced.
