Bethesda’s E3 2016 showcase

Bethesda is rather known for having solid lineups at E3 and their showcase for E3 2016 is just as impressive as last year. We won’t keep you from them for too long, you’ll be able to find all titles in alphabetical order below.

Dishonored 2

In the worldwide premiere of gameplay, the trailer of Dishonored 2 shows off its new setting, new hero and new mission design. Players will return to the Empire of the Isles, beginning and ending in Dunwall – the bleak industrial city of the first game – while most action takes place in Karnaca, the dazzling Mediterranean-inspired capital of Serkonos. Set fifteen years after the first game, Corvo Attano is accompanied by his daughter Emily Kaldwin whom is now a powerful figure ruling the Empire. Both characters will be playable and are fully voiced with their own perspectives and emotional responses to events. Staying true to the classic Dishonored gameplay, the sequel will have themed missions that include many pathways to explore. Dishonored 2 is scheduled to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 11, 2016.

DOOM official add-on content

One month after the launch of the most iconic titles in the industry, DOOM, Bethesda announced even more content for the critically acclaimed sci-fi horror first-person shooter. If you weren’t planning on picking the game up, the free demo of the full first level might be able to change your mind but be quick as the demo will be available for a limited time only.

Additional content will come in the form of free updates to DOOM’s innovative SnapMap creation tool such as new construction modules, new props, weapons and items, new logic options and functionality. On top of that, two new multiplayer modes will be released: Exodus – a one-flag CTF mode – and Sector – a multizone capture-and-hold mode. Three more free-for-all modes will join the ranks later this summer.

DOOM’s first premium DLC pack Unto the Evil will release next month and features three new multiplayer maps: Offering, Cataclysm and Ritual, as well as a new player-controlled demon, a new weapon, new equipment, new ways to customize your DOOM marine and new hack modules.

Fallout 4 official add-on content

Three more add-ons has been revealed for Fallout 4, with the first one becoming available next week. Contraptions Workshop allows players to build all sort of machines and gadgets to improve the Wasteland settlements. The DLC also includes all-new features like elevators, greenhouse kits, warehouse kits, fireworks, armor racks and much more. The Vault-Tec Workshop DLC will be available next month with which you can built a massive Vault and attract new Dwellers, customize the looks of your inhabitants and run approved experiments. Last but certainly not least, Nuka-World will release in August, showcasing an all-new region run down by Raiders. As always, the add-ons will be available as part of the Season Pass.

The new content created with the help of the Creation Kit was previously only available for PC and Xbox One users. At the end of June, PlayStation 4 users will gain access to the Mods too.

Fallout Shelter

Since its debut at last year’s BE3 showcase, Fallout Shelter has been downloaded by more than 50 million people. A stunning number for the free game but Bethesda has much more in store for the game. Update 1.6 will introduce quests, an all-new combat system, new characters and enemies and many more locations to explore. On top of that, it’s been revealed that Fallout Shelter is coming to PC. Further information of the PC version will follow soon.


Arkane Studios – the team behind the critically acclaimed Dishonored series – is bringing their unique vision to Prey, reimagining the franchise from the ground up. With their new ideas, the first-person sci-fi action reboot will have an added psychological twist. Morgan Yu – which you will play as – has been a subject of morally dubious experiments designed to improve the human race. Hunted by mysterious alien forces aboard the Talos 1, you must uncover the secrets equipped with your wits, weapons and mind-bending abilities. Prey will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2017.

Skyrim Special Edition

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has always been fan’s favorite and the vocal outcries of being a remastered version has been heard by Bethesda. In Skyrim Special Edition, you’ll be able to enjoy the stunning scenery with all-new features like remastered art and effects, volumetric god rays, dynamic depth of field, screen-space reflections and much more. The Special Edition includes the base game and all DLC’s.

Owners of the PC version of Skryim and all its add-ons (Dawnguard, Heathfire and Dragonborn) on Steam will receive a free upgrade to the Special Edition upon its release. The same applies for those who own the Legendary Edition on Steam. Skyrim Special Edition is planned to release on October 28, 2016 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC and will include the full power of PC mods.

The Elder Scrolls: Legends

In The Elder Scrolls: Legends, players can change the course of Elder Scrolls history via its rich story-driven campaign and strategic card-based gameplay. Revealed during the BE3 2016 showcase is the intro cinematic for the campaign mode, introducing the narrative. In addition to PC and iPad, The Elder Scrolls: Legends will also be coming to Mac, iPhone and Android tablets and phones, making it the ultimate mobile game.

The Elder Scrolls Online

It has already been two years since the launch of The Elder Scrolls Online. The multiplayer game has already seen numerous updates and DLC packs and the latest DLC Dark Brotherhood will release this week. The biggest news however is not the amount of content already released – or about to be released – but what is to come. Starting this fall, all content barriers will be removed and you’ll be able to experience all Tamriel has to offer, regardless of your level. PvP areas and Alliance restrictions will still be enforced but being able to group up with anyone and explore any region you want is a positive feature that we will certainly enjoy.

Quake Champions

While last in line, Quake Champions actually kick started the BE3 showcase with a stunning cinematic trailer. In Quake Champions, the fast and skill-based arena-style competition from the original Quake games has returned featuring a roster of unique characters, each with their own distinctive abilities. Capturing the essence of Quake, the multiplayer shooter allows a new generation of players to experience the groundbreaking franchise while veterans can finally try their hand at a Quake game that is built for eSports. More details will be revealed at this year’s QuakeCon.
