E3 was this year again a big success with the huge presentations from Microsoft and PlayStation but the presentation that stood out the most for me personally was the E3 press conference from Bethesda.
This was the first ever E3 press conference for Bethesda and in my opinion, they completely nailed it! First of all, the whole Presentation was dressed so well. Everything looked great and professional. The presenters were also very professional and interacted great with the audience.
They not only gave out a lot of information about old and upcoming games, they also released a game at the conference and released a lot more information about anew game studio they started.
Bethesda has started a new game studio called: Battlecry studios with their first game “BATTLECRY”. They didn’t talk a lot about this game at the conference but at their website you can already sign up for the Battlecry closed beta.
Of course they also talked about the new DOOM they are working on. This is going to be a complete remake of the original DOOM games. From what we have seen, the graphics are great, there are going to be new enemies, bosses and weapons and they made a huge user-friendly but still advanced map making tool build in the game itself. With this tool you can create your own maps and share it with other people through the new Bethesda.net community and developer sharing system. With this system you can also share mods for games like Skyrim with your console. That was pretty much all they told us about both DOOM and the new Bethesda.net system.
Then they finally went to the game we were all waiting for; Fallout 4. So in the new Fallout game the story starts before the apocalypse where you create your character through the completely revamped character customization system. You can just select the part of the body you want to change and ‘sculpt’ it as you like and you can now finally also play as a female character.
Furthermore you can also manipulate the whole world you play in and also use any items you find for parts to make new useful tool or utilities. At the end of the presentation they dropped a bomb on us all. The release date! Fallout 4 will be released this year, November 10th! Not only that, they also mentioned a closed Fallout 4 Beta!
I can’t wait for these games and am stoked to see how Fallout 4 works out!
