Bethesda Conference Reactions - E3 2017

Tonight I got to attend my very first press conference and Bethesda went all out, turning a small segment of Downtown Los Angeles into their very own amusement park: Bethesda Land. Attendees were given free food and drink, collectible pins, and there was even a ferris wheel.

(I don't know what happened to the video on this one. The raw file was fine but anytime I imported it into Adobe Premiere to edit, it went haywire. Sorry)

My Predictions

  1. Wolfenstein The New Colossus trailer. Coming in 2018
  2. New stuff coming to Fallout Shelter and Fallout 4 VR release date for Vive and Oculus announced
  3. Elder Scrolls Online expansion
  4. Dishonored 2 DLC following the adventures of Meagan Foster
  5. To correspond to the Amusement Park invite: two new titles announced with one of them being The Evil Within 2

Prediction Results

The theme of Bethesda's show wound up being 2017. Everything shown today is coming out this year. But apart from the date descepancies, I was largely spot on.

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus will follow B.J. Blazkowicz as he tries to embolden the American resistance October 27, 2017.

Fallout 4 VR (and Doom VFR) are coming out by the end of the year. (Nothing on the Fallout Shelter front though).

Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind Expansion received healthy screentime (but it came out last week).

Dishonored DLC following the adventures of Meagan Foster/Billie Lurk as she tries to assassinate The Outsider is coming out September 15th.

And The Evil Within 2 got a lengthy showcase and a release date of Friday, October 13th.

All in all, not too shabby.

Score: I'm gonna say 4/5 (in this meaningless exercise).

My Notes from the Show

Didn't really take any since I was onsite, away from my computer. But most of the highlights are covered up above.

Oh, and Link amiibo support in Skyrim on Switch pretty much sold it for me.
