Bethesda [E3 2017]
Bethesda was brief, it was fast and to the point, and while not the biggest press conference, it definitely wasn’t disappointing. A new Elder Scrolls or new IP would have been nice, but after that brief 40 minute conference, I’m pretty happy with what we got.
Doom VFR. Fallout 4 VR was also announced, but honestly I care much more about Doom than I do Fallout. I’m so prepared for the motion sickness that comes with Doom in VR, and how absolutely terrifying this will be. Doom VFR will release in 2017.
Dishonored 2 was one of the best games of 2016, I’m so keen for the return of Dishonored 1’s Billie Lurk and Daud in Death of the Outsider. The Dishonored world is one of my favourites so honestly I’d have been pretty happy with any kind of Dishonored announcement today. Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is set to release September 15.
Skyrim has finally been confirmed for the Nintendo Switch, and I was pretty certain it wasn’t going to be something I’d want, but my mind quickly changed with the use of the Breath of the Wild Link Amiibo to give the player character Link’s outfit.
I was leading the hype train for The Evil Within so hard, only for the game to be a monumental disappointment. The announcement of The Evil Within 2 has me torn; the trailer was incredible, and the story looks promising. I want more than anything for The Evil Within 2 to live up to its announcement trailer, but I’m going to try and not get too excited for it. The Evil Within 2 releases on Friday the 13th of October. So spooky.
Definitely the highlight of Bethesda’s press conference was this Nazi punching masterpiece. Wolfenstein II’s trailer ended on a magical high note of your pregnant wife stabbing a nazi, while you trip on acid, and if that’s not enough to pique your interest, we also get to experience the same extremely satisfying combat of its predecessors. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will release on October 27.
