Bethesda kicked off E3 with a bang, showing off franchise titles such as Doom and Fallout 4, and announcing the development of some smaller projects like Dishonered 2 and The Elder Scrolls Legends, an online strategic card game. Here is you complete recap of Bethesda’s E3 press conference.
Doom is back with old and new tricks alike. “Badass demons, big f***ing guns and moving fast” are the name of the game. The gameplay showed that off in spades, with a bevy of weapons ranging from shotguns to chainsaws. Doom will also have an online multiplayer component, with arena style combat and game modes Domination, Freez tag and Clan Arena. Doom will also launch Doom Snapmap, a community driven feature that allows players to create their own maps and game modes. Doom Snapmap gives players the opportunity to create game modes completely different from those already given.
An online action game, BattleCry is currently in closed beta. The PC only title will be entering Online Beta soon, with applications now available. The finished version of BattleCry is expected to launch this fall, with the introduction of a new clan of characters, The Han Republic.
Dishonered 2 continues the story of Dishonered, players take control of either a male of female character, each with different powers and abilities. Dishonered 2 will be launch on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Dishonered Definitive Edition will launch this year for the X1, PS4 and PC.
