E3 2018 Day 2 – Bethesda
A Deeper Look Into Rage 2
Bethesda’s E3 conference started off with Andrew W.K. for some reason, but eventually got into a great gameplay trailer for Rage 2. The star of Rage 2 is named Walker, who’s the last ranger going up against a faction called “The Authority”. The gameplay looks super fun, very Bulletstorm-ish which is definitely a good thing. It’s scheduled to release in the Spring of 2019, but you can watch the trailer here.
Doom Eternal Continues The Story Of Doom
Doom Eternal continues where Doom left off as hell takes over the Earth. Bethesda says we’ll see more at QuakeCon in August, which I’m sure a lot of people are excited for since Doom was such a hit when it came out a few years ago. You can watch the trailer here.
Prey Gets Some New Stuff, Out Right Now
Arkane announced quite a few new things coming to Prey. Wait, did I say coming to Prey. Oh no, it’s out right now! New Game + is free, as well as the new survival mode. The paid DLC that was also announced called Mooncrash was described as “infinitely replayable”, which sounds promising. You can see the trailer for Mooncrash right here. The one thing that was announced that isn’t out right now is called “Typhon Hunter”, which is a mode where a human player takes on five player-controlled Mimics, which sounds pretty fun.
Wolfenstein Goes Co-Op With Youngblood
This new Wolfenstein takes place in the 80s, the protagonists this time around are the twin daughters of BJ and Anya, and the game will be out some time next year. I’m sure it’ll be just as good as the last two spectacular last two outings for the Wolfenstein series. You can check out the trailer here.
Fallout 76 Is Definitely An Online Survival RPG
Todd Howard took the stage to finally tell us exactly what Fallout 76 is. As rumored, it’s an online “softcore” survival game where death doesn’t mean a loss of progression. You’ll be sharing the world with dozens of other vault dwellers in a server as well. The game also features a shared crafting system that allows players to team up and build outposts together. You can get nukes to use on other players, which is crazy. The game will have dedicated servers and Bethesda plans to support it in the future. You can check out the gameplay trailer here, the multiplayer trailer here, and the nuke trailer here. Oh, did I mention the game is coming out November 14th this year?
The Elder Scrolls: Blades Is the Elder Scrolls Experience In Your Pocket
Blades is coming for free this Fall and it’s looks like a pretty good iteration of the Elder Scrolls series. The trailer shows some combat, some dungeon crawling, but even more exciting is the town-building. You can apparently even visit your friends’ towns, which is a rather nice touch. You can see the trailer for it here.
New Sci-Fi Game Starfield
A new sci-fi game from Bethesda is in the works, but we didn’t get much besides a teaser trailer that just shows what space looks like. Here‘s that teaser. Todd Howard described it as “next-gen”, possibly meaning we’ll see it on the next generation of consoles, not Xbox One and PS4.
Elder Scrolls VI Exists
Bethesda released a teaser for Elder Scrolls VI, basically just to confirm that it is in fact in development. The trailer is literally nothing but a panning shot of a landscape, but if you want to watch that, here you go.
Some other things shown at the conference include a DLC for Elder Scrolls Online called Wolf Hunter that looks to be all about werewolves, a new trailer for Quake Champions that you can watch here if you’re into that, and the announcement that Fallout Shelter has come to PS4 and Switch.
That’s everything from the Bethesda conference, anything you got excited about? Let us know below! Be sure to stay tuned to Fanbros for everything E3 this week!
