E3 2017 - the Bethesda press conference breakdown.

Bethesda's wasn't as impressive as years past, without Fallout 4 to blow us away with or DOOM, but it was a nice, solid hour-ish of games with a few nice surprises.

Let's break it down.

  • DOOM is getting a VR version called DOOM VFR. It uses the blink-around-the-environment-to-move solution we've seen in other VR games.  Weird. It'll be out this year. 
  • Fallout 4 VR will also be out this year, and has eschewed the blink-to-move thing. 
  • They talked about the Morrowind expansion to Elder Scrolls Online
  • They showed a trailer for Skyrim on Switch
  • They announced the Creation Club, in which Bethesda devs, external developers and "the best user-created mods" are legit-incorporated into Fallout 4 and Skyrim, without any of this might-break-your-game-and-screw-your-achievements nonsense. 
  • They showed me a bit of Quake Champions
  • The Evil Within 2 was officially announced, and looks totes cray. 
  • A new Dishonored game - Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is coming this year, and it stars badass  one-eyed ship's captain Billie Lurk.  Kickass. 
But the cherry on top and the best part of Bethesda's showing was definitely...
Nice job, Bethesda.
