It’s arguable that Bethesda had a very weak press conference this year. There was no major new announcements in terms of new IPs like we all expected. Despite this, the company actually had a relatively good E3 with several new announcements for all consoles.
Bethesda revealed their Doom VR demo last year bust stated it wouldn’t be a real game. Looks like they lied as they’ve made it into a real game.
The new game isn’t a full Doom port however. It’s a brand new story that we don’t know much about right now. According to the trailer, the game makes use of the teleportation movement feature traditionally included in VR games at the moment. As a result, it looks incredibly fast paced and chaotic.
It will be releasing for the PlayStation VR and HTC Vive on PC. There is currently no release date for it however.
Dishonored: Death of the Outsider
This standalone DLC for the Dishonored series follows Billie Lurk as she reunites with her mentor, Daud, and works towards taking down the ultimate mark: The Outsider. We don’t know too much about this new game yet but we do know it’s a separate ‘game’ to both of the main entries in the Dishonored series.
Death of the Outsider will be releasing on September 15th later this year for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
The Evil Within 2
This game was one of the big announcements from Bethesda’s conference this year and the trailer certainly sets the mood for this one.
Players take control of Detective Sebastian Castellanos who is at his lowest point in life. However, he’s given a chance to save his daughter by entering a terrifying world filled with nightmares. Only by discovering the origins of the twisted town does he stand a chance at saving her. Players will be able to decide which playstyle they want to use, do they want to charge in all guns blazing or do they want a more stealthy approach.
The Evil Within 2 will be launching on Friday 13th in October. PS4, Xbox One and PC will all receive the game.
Fallout 4 VR
While this game hasn’t been confirmed for PlayStation 4 yet it’s still worth mentioning. Bethesda is releasing Doom VFR and Skyrim VR on PS4 via PSVR so it would make sense for the developer to eventually port this VR title to PlayStation 4 also. However, we’ll have to wait and see what happens as it hasn’t been confirmed yet.
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
The trailer starts off with a mini-trailer for something called “Lisel” which left many people confused. As the trailer built up it became that this was a Wolfenstein sure to satisfy the many fans expecting to see it this year. During the 2016 conference, Bethesda had a small Wolfenstein teaser at the start of the conference so gamers have been hyped for the new game ever since. Well, it’s finally coming out.
If the trailer is anything to go by, the new game will be absolutely nuts. At the end we see a pregnant Anna stabbing a Nazi… While a guy trips out on drugs next to her. The game can only get better from here.
Players take control of BJ Blazkowicz who is a memember of the resistance and fighting back against the Nazi’s who won World War II. The aim of the game seems to be to try and start a second American Revolution.The New Colossus will be releasing worldwide on October 27th for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
