Bethesda at E3 – Everything You Need To Know

Bethesda’s 2016 E3 press conference is a wrap but if you missed out on the action, here’s what they announced.

Quake Champions

The Strogg are back!

In following suit of previous id Software games, the long-awaited return of Quake has been announced by Bethesda with ‘Quake Champions’. With great successes of Wolfenstein: The New Order, and DOOM, it was a matter of time before Bethesda announced a return to the gory multiplayer franchise, having not been seen since Enemy Territory: Quake Wars in 2007.

The Elder Scrolls: Legends – New Strategy Card Game

Next in the showcase was The Elder Scrolls: Legends, a strategy card game we’d seen before from Bethesda.

The game will feature a narrative-heavy campaign as well as all the multiplayer modes, and will be coming to PC and phones later in the year.

Fallout 4 – Workshop DLC and Fallout Shelter

This is one that’s sure to please those who feel at home tinkering away and building in the Bethesda’s nuke-ravaged Boston. They announced two Workshop DLCs, one that’ll add contraptions like elevators and conveyor belts to the tool bag, and another that let’s players build their very own vaults.

There was also promise of substantial updates to Fallout Shelter coming soon.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition

One of the worst kept secrets in the lead up to Bethesda’s E3 presentation, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s remastered edition, it turns out, is very much a reality.

Along with clearly improved visuals and the inclusion of all downloadable content, Skyrim’s special edition will be mod-enabled, much like Fallout 4 was, so that gamers can get even more out of Bethesda’s most recent trip into the world of Tamriel this time around.


The surprises kept on rolling with this one.

Bethesda announced Prey, a reboot to the 2006 game of the same name.

Anticipated by fans, the development of Prey 2 had been long and storied, changing hands to Bethesda in 2009, and subsequently cancelled in 2014.

Doom and Elder Scrolls Online DLCs

These were very much expected announcements from Bethesda’s conference. A few bolted on extras for both Doom’s multiplayer mode as well as the addition of the Dark Brotherhood to The Elder Scrolls Online.

Not much to see here, honestly. But it’s certainly fan service, if nothing else.

Fallout On The Way To VR

Bethesda announced during their conference that the critically-acclaimed darling, Fallout 4, would be coming to the HTC Vive sometime in 2017. The whole game.

Attendees have been invited to try it out after Bethesda’s showcase, along with a Doom VR experience.

Dishonored 2

We got a sneak peek at a brief TV spot for Dishonored 2 during the night of leaks, but Bethesda’s conference provided a much more in-depth look at the upcoming sequel to 2012’s Dishonored.

One For The Eagle Eyed…

Straight off the top, during the “boot-up sequence” for Bethesda’s Quake reveal, some eagle-eyed viewers were quick to notice a possible reference to the next instalment in the Wolfenstein series.

With no discernible date and ordered conveniently below The Old Blood, it appears that New Colossus could be the next adventure in the B.J. Blazkowicz story.
