Best of Bethesdaland: Bethesda E3 2017 Highlights
Bethesda’s press conference was very late in the evening and short. There was little “presentation;” it was more about the content that would be available this year. Yes, you read that correctly—all of the games that were talked about during the press conference will be playable this year. That’s always a plus because fickle gamers don’t like to be kept waiting.
As always, not every game shown is a must play for everyone, but below are the games that grabbed our attention.
Dishonored: Death of the Outsider
After seeing the trailer for Dishonored: Death of the Outsider why wouldn’t anyone be excited for this? The expansion, coming later this year, will only set you back $30, and it’ll provide hours of new gameplay. If you’ve been waiting more Dishonored content, this is definitely the way to go. Also, who doesn’t want to go after the Outsider?
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
This trailer is bonkers. Everything about this is epic and screams game of the year. It’s a bit premature to say that, but it’s a direct sequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order which is a stellar game. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus proves that it will take the game to a new level by bringing the fight to America while introducing a swath of new characters. Get ready to have some fun on October 27th.
The Evil Within 2
This is a solid, hard “Nope!” for me. The trailer is a beautiful take on what happens when someone embraces the darkness. A horror game doesn’t always need to have guts and gore, but a little bit helps set the tone. The story told in The Evil Within 2 seems to be a little bit more personal this time around, and that’s never a bad thing.
The Nintendo Switch is here, and it’s the Nintendo console most gamers have been waiting for. It makes sense that Amiibos can be used in Skyrim—not all, but specifically one. If you happen to have the Link (Archer) Amiibo, then you can get something really, really cool. This something that was not expected, but this will make many Legend of Zelda and Skyrim fans very happy.
Fallout 4 VR and Doom VFR
VR, VR, and more VR! E3 2017 is still going hard in a niche area of gaming. It was interesting that Fallout 4 VR and Doom VFR are getting a VR version of their respected games. I’m not sure how Fallout 4 VR will translate to virtual reality, but Doom VFR seems like a solid choice. The gory gameplay that Doom brings will be super effective; bloody gore always looks better in VR.
