Bethesda E3 2015.jpg

This morning we watched Bethesda's first ever E3 conference, and what a show it was. The usual E3 veterans will have to pull out all the stops to beat the new kid on the block. Well done Bethesda, you made us gasp in surprise, scream in delight, and you made every gamer-geek heart miss a few beats with that Pip-Boy wearable wonder.

Here's a recap from the show.

Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition

If there's ever been a collector's item you should pre-order, then it's this one. The Pip-Boy is a wearable device and compatible with a wide variety of smart phones.

Everything you need to know about Fallout 4

Fallout 4 is exactly the Fallout game fans wanted next. We've waited so long, and come November 10th we will finally put on our beloved vault jumsuit, strap the new and improved Pip-Boy to our wrist, and embark on 2015's greatest adventure. Bethesda launches a few gameplay changes with Fallout 4; there's much deeper character creation, a whole new crafting system, and the main protagonist will speak, to name but a few.

"As the sole survivor of Vault 111, you enter a world destroyed by nuclear war. Every second is a fight for survival, and every choice is yours. Only you can rebuild and determine the fate of the Wasteland. Welcome home. Do whatever you want in a massive open world with hundreds of locations, characters, and quests. Join multiple factions vying for power or go it alone, the choices are all yours."

Bethesda also announced a brand new Fallout game that you can play right now. Fallout Shelter is almost like a SIMS game, just with a cool Fallout design and infinitely more rad. Welcome to Fallout Shelter, your post-Nuclear Strategy Simulation.

"Fallout Shelter puts you in control of a state-of-the-art underground Vault from Vault-Tec. Build the perfect Vault, keep your Dwellers happy, and protect them from the dangers of the Wasteland.Vault-Tec has provided the tools, but the rest is up to you. What are you waiting for?

DOOM - Hell is back

Thank the demons, the new DOOM puts Hell back right where it belongs, in your face. The new DOOM brings back icon multiplayer, really scary combat, the trusted shottie and a brand new MOD feature for all platforms.

Relentless demons, impossibly destructive guns, and fast, fluid movement provide the foundation for intense, first-person combat – whether you’re obliterating demon hordes through the depths of Hell in the single-player campaign, or competing against your friends in numerous multiplayer modes. Expand your gameplay experience using DOOM SnapMap game editor to easily create, play, and share your content with the world."

Dishonored 2 & Dishonored Definite Edition announced

The Dishonored 2 reveal trailer is mind-blowing. Not only will we play as a female character with her own unique abilities, but we'll play as two assassins. Dishonored 2 is set 15 years after the Lord Regent has been vanquished and the dreaded Rat Plague has passed into history.

Explore a world unlike any other as either Emily Kaldwin or Corvo Attano - both powerful assassins with their own unique set of supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets. Define your own playstyle by blending immersive first-person action, assassination, stealth, mobility and the game’s brutal combat system. Combine the tools at your disposal to creatively eliminate your enemies whether you choose to pursue them unseen or ruthlessly attack head on with weapons drawn.

Battlecry

Do we need another online, multiplayer, action, combat game for PC? Bethesda thinks so and they might have a point as Battlecry is not your typical combat game.

"Combining elements of third-person action and fast-paced shooting, BATTLECRYoffers a new gameplay experience with team-based combat, intense tactical warfare and competitive multiplayer action. Choose from 15 warriors, 3 factions and 5 classes during the beta – with even more warriors and classes coming online at launch! Choose YOUR warrior - each with a meaningfully distinct suite of attacks and abilities - from one of several factions from diverse parts of the world. With strategy, brutal attacks, and unique, high-tech weapons, fight for power and glory in 24-player large battles and smaller 12-player team battles across the WarZones."

The Elder Scrolls: Legends

Bethesda's Hearthstone contender? We know almost nothing about The Elder Scrolls: Legends, as Bethesda only mentioned it briefly. 

"Dive into the newest adventure in The Elder Scrolls series with The Elder Scrolls: Legends - a free-to-play strategy card game."

 

And that concludes our Bethesda E3 2015 coverage. We'll continue to provide E3 coverage every day until the fat lady sings on Thursday. See you tonight for EA and Microsoft.
