Bethesda just finished blowing our socks off and here are all the highlights.

Rage 2
First up in the BE3 program was a performance by Andrew WK about a song which suits Rage 2 apparently. After this bizarre intro we got to see a new story trailer for the game as well as some gameplay. Rage 2 looks fucking insane. It’s full of chaotic craziness and looks like it’ll be a tonne of fun.

Elder Scrolls
In Elder Scrolls news we learned that the card game Elder Scrolls Legends is coming to Switch, Xbox One and PS4 and that progression in the game will transfer across systems via the player’s Bethesda account. We also got to see an all new mobile game which is coming called The Elder Scrolls Blades. It’s effectively an Elder Scrolls first person RPG on mobile and it looks great. We also go a tasty tease for Elder Scrolls 6 to confirm that they are working on it, no word on when we will see that though.

Doom Eternal got a tease as well, again confirming that they are working on a game which people have been clamouring for. We will see more information about this one released at QuakeCon in August of this year.

Post-launch support of Prey will continue with some new DLC called Mooncrash which is effectively a rogue-style never ending mode. There will also be a new multiplayer mode which involves one person going up against 5 people who get to play as mimics.

Wolfenstein Youngblood is a new game in the franchise in which you play as BJ’s twin daughters a bit later into the future in the 1980s. As they are twins that means the game will be playable in single player or as a co-op experience. There is also a Wolfenstein VR game coming called Wolfenstein Cyberpilot in which you play a hacker.

The biggest thing everyone waiting for though, was more information about Fallout 76. Todd Howard came out on stage and confirmed that the game is entirely online in a sort of persistent online survival game. It includes base building and even has nuclear weapons that you can get your hands on and then utterly devastate other players with. Registration for the beta for Fallout 76 is open now at Bethesda.Net. The game itself is out November 14th this year!

Todd Howard announced that Bethesda Game Studios are working on an all new IP. This trailer is all we know about it for now.

The final thing I wanted to share from the Bethesda show was a joke trailer for yet another version of Skyrim which Todd Howard shared for a laugh. Skyrim Very Special Edition on Alexa and Samsung smart fridges. Check out the video and have a chuckle 😀
