At their E3 2018 conference this morning, Bethesda gave an in-depth look at many of its upcoming games, which include Fallout 76, Rage 2, and Doom Eternal. We also got a teaser of their sci-fi game called Star Field. But the showstopper was the reveal of The Elder Scrolls VI.
Here is a quick roundup of everything Bethesda announced at E3 2018.
BETHESDA’S BLOCKBUSTER LINEUP ANNOUNCED AT E3 2018 SHOWCASE
Wolfenstein: Youngblood | Announced
Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a brand-new co-op experience from MachineGames, the award-winning studio that developed the critically acclaimed Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.
Set in 1980, 19 years after BJ Blazkowicz ignited the second American Revolution, Wolfenstein: Youngblood introduces the next Blazkowicz generation to the fight against the Nazis. Play as one of BJ’s twin daughters, Jess and Soph, as you search for your missing father in Nazi-occupied Paris.
Cyberpilot VR | Announced
Experience the world of Wolfenstein from a whole new perspective in Cyberpilot VR, a virtual reality gaming experience from MachineGames.
Paris. 1980. You’re the best hacker in town. Your mission: Aid the French resistance by taking control of powerful Nazi war machines. Ram, gun down, and burn your way through the City of Love, leaving dead Nazis in your wake. Saddle up, Cyberpilot, you’re one of us now.
DOOM Eternal | Announced
Developed by id Software, DOOM Eternal is the direct sequel to the award-winning and best-selling DOOM (2016). Experience the ultimate combination of speed and power with the next leap in push-forward, first-person combat. As the DOOM Slayer, return to take your vengeance against the forces of Hell. Set to an all-new pulse-pounding soundtrack composed by Mick Gordon, fight across dimensions as you slay new and classic demons with powerful new weapons and abilities.
The Elder Scrolls Online | Wolfhunter & Murkmire Chapters Announced
We are thrilled to announce the next two DLC game packs for The Elder Scrolls Online in 2018: Wolfhunter and Murkmire.
ESO’s next DLC game pack, Wolfhunter, will bring two new and challenging group dungeons: Moon Hunter Keep and March of Sacrifices. As its name suggests, these two dungeons are themed around Tamriel’s werewolves, and you’ll be able to dive into all new stories surrounding those inflicted with the lycanthropic curse and even, perhaps, come face to face with the Daedric Prince Hircine himself.
Available later this year, Murkmire is ESO’s next zone and story content expansion, and it will take you into the home of the Argonians. There, you will win the trust of reclusive tribes, delve deep into crumbling Xanmeer ruins, and hack your way through the savage wilds of Black Marsh to discover one of the Hist’s greatest secrets.
We also announced that since the release of last year’s Morrowind chapter, we’ve added one million players to the game globally, meaning The Elder Scrolls Online is now home to 11 million players. Don’t forget there has never been a better time to join or return to the game, following the recent release of the latest chapter, Summerset.
This new adventure in the ESO saga sends adventurers and their friends to the Summerset Isle, to visit and explore the ancestral home of the high elves for the first time since 1994’s The Elder Scrolls: Arena. Players explore the island of Artaeum, home to the mysterious Psijic Order, a group of sages that predate the Mages Guild. Tamriel’s fate hangs in the balance and the heroes of ESO are called upon to save the world once more.
