Highlights from the Bethesda showcase – E3 2016

News

Opening their showcase with a jaw dropping Quake Champions trailer, Bethesda kicked their E3 off with a great start. Check out all the videos and highlights from the conference right here.

Let’s start with Quake Champions, which looks to be in the same vein as the recent hit DOOM. Not much has been announced to date apart from the fact you can play as different champions that are tethered to the legacy of the game, but the trailer is well worth looking at:

Dishonored 2 was a focus of the show, and a new gameplay trailer showed off the Void engine, which was made just for the game. Players will be able to play as both Emily and Corvo, the former bringing new skills including a domino effect and shadow walk. Oh and the Collectors edition will come with replicas of Corvo’s mask and Emily’s ring, so get in fast for that judging by how quickly the Pip-Boy Fallout 4 editions sold out. See the new Dishonored trailer here:

It was rumored that Bethesda were working on a remaster of Skyrim, well now we know it’s definitely happening. From what we can see of Skyrim: Special Edition the graphics have had an overhaul. Skyrim: Special Edition will come to PS4, Xbox One and PC, and taking a page form Fallout 4‘s book, the game will also bring mods to console. PC Skyrim owners will surprisingly get a free upgrade to the Special Edition. Check out the announcement towards the end of this video:

Prey, which shares a name with an older series but not much in theme, looks to be a great sci-fi thriller. So far all we know is that you battle an escaped alien on-board a spaceship, so let’s expect plenty of air vent sequences. Check out the creepy/beautiful trailer here:

Bethesda dropped a bomb by announcing they have been working with VR and announced Fallout 4 will come to HTC Vive in 2017. They have also worked with DOOM in VR, so we can probably go to hell soon. Demos of Fallout 4 in VR are currently taking place at the expo.
