We’ve got confirmation that RAGE 2 and Fallout 76 will be at Bethesda’s E3 showcase, which confirms this year’s conference will already be more interesting than last years. I’m hoping we’ll get an announcement regarding another remaster/port for Switch (namely Fallout 3 Anniversary or Fallout 4), alongside the big reveal of Bethesda Game Studios’ Starfield. With nothing currently slated for release after Wolfenstein II’s Switch release at the end of the month, I’m assuming Bethesda will have a heck of a lot to show.
Bethesda isn’t leaving a lot to the imagination going into E3. We already know Rage 2 and Fallout 76 will be there, which surely can’t leave much else to show off. There’s talk that the game will be an online survival multiplayer game, a rumour I can totally get behind. Let me venture through the wasteland with my mates, build a base and encounter bands of player-controlled rogues. Bring it on!
It’s really hard to know what to expect from Bethesda’s E3 conference this year. They announced both RAGE 2 and Fallout 76, which either means they’ve got something huge to announce at the conference, or they just want to deep dive into these games. I’d love to see the long-rumoured Starfield, or at least a glimpse into the future of their next RPG. I’d also like to see them bring more games to the Nintendo Switch, and whilst I’m not hugely into VR these days, they’ve been probably the best third-party publisher when it comes to VR, so I’d be interested to see what they do there.
Skyrim has been milked to oblivion and beyond, it’s time to show off their big single player RPG that will take them to the next generation of consoles. Fallout 76 is likely to cover the multiplayer market so there isn’t an issue teasing both titles at once in my opinion.
Sliding in early with the full reveal of Rage 2 and a teaser for Fallout 76 before any of the real E3 action happens, it’ll be interesting to see what else Bethesda has up their sleeve. Are they getting the smaller stuff out of the way ahead of dropping a bombshell like an Elder Scrolls sequel or will we have to be content with the (probably) multiplayer survival Fallout game for now? Perhaps in one another of those “it’s out right now” moments that have become an E3 staple?
