Bethesda E3 2017 Recap: More of the Same

Bethesda is a giant in the gaming industry, bringing us games such as Elder Scrolls, Fallout and Doom and every year I personally can’t wait to see what they have to offer at E3. This year I was slightly worried as Bethesda has seemingly gone crazy, instituting a full theme park at E3 and having their presentation at 9 pm Pacific, which was 12 am my time on the East coast. And as we would soon find out,   Bethesda had a couple of big announcements about sequels but nothing amazing or special, which leaves this fan wanting more.  Check out some of the announcements:

The Evil Within 2

A sequel to Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami’s 2014 game, The Evil Within 2 has an interesting and promising trailer.  A mix of horror and psychological thriller, this game hopes to build off a story that was not as amazing as many horror fans would have liked but has potential to be great. Check out the trailer for the game below, set to release Friday October 13th, 2017.

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider

A new standalone expansion of the Dishonored franchise was announced, set to come out September 15th, 2017 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.  On its site, Bethesda says the game will feature new enemies, familiar characters and amped up powers to kill the bad guys, stating:

“Using all-new powers and abilities, Billie will infiltrate underground fight clubs and square off against the Sisters of the Oracular Order, the immortal Envisioned and the Outsider-obsessed Eyeless gang. She’ll also face new Clockwork Soldiers – along with other new and returning foes – and retrieve ancient artifacts in a thrilling bank-heist mission, eventually facing the mysterious, god-like Outsider himself.”

Wolfenstein: The New Colossus

After the amazing success of it’s predecessor, Wolfenstein: The New Colossus looks to continue the story of B.J. Blazkowicz as he travels back to the US in the 1960’s to fight the Nazis on American soil. As an avid fan of getting rid of Nazis, I am probably most excited for this announcement. Look for its release October 27th, on PS4, Xbox One and PC.


Fallout, Skyrim and Doom in VR

The Virtual Reality craze has gotten into Bethesda and we are seeing this with full fledged Fallout VR, Doom VFR, for the HTC Vive and Skyrim for PSVR.  I for one find this to be a lot for a company who is infamous for game breaking bugs, however, time will tell if this trend will turn into something amazing.  Set for an October release, Fallout is promising a full fledged experience, but only if you have an amazing computer to run it. Skyrim on the other hand will be available for anyone with PSVR, which makes this one of the biggest and best games that will be out for VR.
