Bethesda's E3 press conference aims to impress
MANILA, Philippines – Ahead of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, Bethesda announced some new games and game upgrades meant for gamers everywhere.
First up at their conference is the reveal of Quake Champions, which they described as a "competitive multiplayer arena shooter." Not much was said about it, but they did release a trailer to tease the game.
Revealed at the press conference was an E3 introduction trailer for The Elder Scrolls: Legends, an Elder Scrolls-based card game for PC, Mac, Android, and iOS.
Bethesda also announced three upcoming updates for Fallout 4. These include a Contraptions Workshop and a Vault-Tec Workshop addon for the game, as well as a new campaign, which appears to be titled Nuka-World.
Fallout 4 will also be headed to virtual reality! The team announced the game will be heading to the HTC Vive in 2017, and it won't be a demo, but a full game. Attendees of the press conference will be able to try it out after Bethesda's show concludes.
Bethesda also revealed a remastered version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The remaster will arrive on October 28.
They also announced Prey via the trailer below.
Both the remastered Skyrim and Prey will be available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
Bethesda, after the main press conference, also said on Twiter that if a PC player owns The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and all the addons or own the legendary edition of Skyrim on Steam, they will get a free upgrade to the Skyrim Special Edition remaster on October 28.
Bethesda also announced a demo for intense action-shooter DOOM. Those wishing to check out the game can download and play the first level of the game for free on PC, PS4 and Xbox One this week.
Zenimax Online Studios, the developers behind online role-playing game The Elder Scrolls Online, also announced that the game would be launching in Japan this month. They also announced One Tamriel, a change to the game which basically strips some of the blocks that prevent people from exploring together due to level differences.
Players will be able to access any part of Tamriel without level restrictions, and will reportedly incorporate level-scaling to make lower-leveled players match-up to higher-leveled zones. One Tamriel is reportedly scheduled to come this Fall.
Dishonored 2, meanwhile, is set for a November 11 release. There will also be a Collector's Edition of the game, which will come with a replica of Emily's ring and Corvo's mask. – Rappler.com
