Overshadowed by fallout, Bethesda Softworks studio director Todd Howard was quick to acknowledge the well-deserved criticism they received and clear the air for what proceeded to be a great conference overall.

The Elder Scrolls Blades

The Elder Scrolls: Blades has been available to download on Android and iOS in open beta for a few months now, and E3 brings with it a new update. Solo arena battles are now available in the game, as is a custom jewellery system which grants the player with augmented stats.

A new dragon questline has also been added, which will see dragon battles introduced to the game for the first time. To round off the segment, The Elder Scrolls: Blades will be coming to Switch this Autumn and will feature cross-play and progression with mobile.

Fallout 76

To kick off their Year 2 content delivery, the Wastelanders expansion pack will introduce NPCs to the game for the first time with full dialogue trees featuring choice and consequence; a Fallout staple feature that was notably absent from 76 at launch. The expansion will be free for all players, and a free trial of the game will run throughout the week of E3.

Available now in Fallout 76 is the new Nuclear Winter mode which sees 52 players fight to the death in a closing ring of fire to become the new Vault Overseer - a no apologies made Battle Royale mode.

Ghostwire Tokyo

Creative Director of Tango Gameworks, Ikumi Nakamura, took the stage to announce their new game, Ghostwire Tokyo. A CG trailer shows a spooky rendition of Tokyo where much of the population has vanished and looks as though the game will feature a combination of both natural and spiritual horror. There’s no gameplay or release date yet.

Elder Scrolls Online

A new expansion, titled Dragonhold, will release for the Elder Scrolls Online in November and will tie up the current chapter of Elswheyer content. Also, the Scalebreaker DLC will add two new dungeons to the Elswheyer area and is expected to release some time in August.

Commander Keen

A revival of the 90s cult classic game, Commander Keen, is coming to mobile in the form of a free-to-play mobile action card game, releasing this summer. It will feature both a single-player campaign as well as real-time PvP combat.

Rage 2

The first expansion for Rage 2 will release later in 2019. Rise of the Ghosts will introduce new enemies, vehicles, story, factions, areas, gameplay modes, and a pilotable mech. New cheat codes will also be included which will modify goofy gameplay traits like gravity values and colour saturation.

Wolfenstein

Two new Wolfenstein games are releasing this year, one of which is a VR title. In Wolfenstein Cyberpilot, you take on the role of a French hacker who has hacked into Nazi war machines and turned them on their creators. Gameplay sees the player controlling mech suits while massacring the Nazi regime through the streets of Paris.

Wolfenstein Young Blood is the new collaboration project between Machine Games and Arkane Studios and follows the story 20 years on from Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus. BJ Blaskowitz's twin daughters are on a mission to find him in Nazi-occupied Paris and will be the first fully co-op entry to the rebooted Wolfenstein franchise. It’s releasing on July 26th.

Deathloop

Speaking of Arkane Studios, Deathloop is their new IP, announced via a CG trailer. The two protagonists appear to be trapped in a groundhog day style time loop in which they continually try to kill each other before the loop resets. It’s set in an oppressive world which mirrors the atmosphere of We Happy Few, to an extent. There’s very little information regarding gameplay, and there’s no word yet on a release date either.

DOOM Eternal

The anticipated sequel to 2016’s DOOM reboot saw an extensive gameplay walkthrough showcasing the astonishing arsenal of weapons that you’ll be fighting off hordes of demons in locations like Mars, Earth, Heaven, Hell and more. The collector's edition will come with a fully wearable Doom Guy helmet complete with LEDs.

An asymmetrical multiplayer battle mode will see players take control of demons in a 2v1 arena style mode. More gameplay will be shown at Quakecon in July before the game releases fully on November 22nd.

Bethesda has a good smattering of games to look forward too, most of which are releasing within the next 12 months. Ikumi Nakamura captured the hearts of the internet with Ghostwire Tokyo, and Arkane’s pedigree with Dishonored surely cements confidence in their efforts with new IP Deathloop. Given Bethesda’s lack of public goodwill before their conference, they certainly did well to impress this year.
