Bethesda E3 2017 live report Finished

That, then, was Bethesda - 30 minutes that made you wonder if the publisher really has enough games to warrant a conference of its own. Still, away from the recaps of existing games and drawn out CG trailers there was the highlight of E3 so far, Machine Games' phenomenal looking Wolfenstein 2 - and it's out later this year. This is how it unfolded.

    A lot of meaty gaming chunks on their plate. Bon appetite. Well done, Bethesda.

  • liquidsoap89 5 months ago

    Short and sweet, well done Bethesda.
  • Moedav 5 months ago

    wait, its over?
  • dingbat91 5 months ago

    I mean if there are young people watching Martin they're traumatised by the Evil within trailer. So I think swearing is cool now.
  • Rayza 5 months ago

    Please be out this year
  • Rayza 5 months ago

    Next*
  • Rayza 5 months ago

    Graphics seem to be almost nest gen looking this E3 compared to last year. Thus, Metro, Anthem are all stunning.
  • Kami 5 months ago

    That is indeed, rather bananas.
  • liquidsoap89 5 months ago

    This looks fantastic!
  • dingbat91 5 months ago

    This is quite a varied thing for a first trailer it can't be long till it's...well there we go.
  • liquidsoap89 5 months ago

    WHEELCHAIR FPS!?
  • Rayza 5 months ago

    This looks amazing
  • Damn_Skippy 5 months ago

    Nice Dune-style armour.
  • valentynlyevyentsov 5 months ago

    I know it's a stretch but If we get Half Life 3 this year I will sacrifice my unborn child to Lord Gaben. Just saying.
  • Rayza 5 months ago

    Wow
  • valentynlyevyentsov 5 months ago

    So it's over soon? Thank the Lord he heard my prayers!
  • zoanoid 5 months ago

    CAT MONKEY
  • liquidsoap89 5 months ago

    HELL. YES.
  • zoanoid 5 months ago

    WOLFENSTEIN
  • MrSnaztastic 5 months ago

    Y'know, I actually kinda appreciate it when a sequel doesn't come with a subtitle these days.
  • valentynlyevyentsov 5 months ago

    WOW. Friday the 13th. Noice...
  • Damn_Skippy 5 months ago

    What no Dishonored Online, Fallout Online or Prey Online? So many missed microtransactions...
  • dingbat91 5 months ago

    @EddCoates Agreed maybe they're talking afterwards, but they were saying "showcase" rather than presentation...so maybe that's the main difference.
  • Rayza 5 months ago

    E3 really makes me question my life choices
  • valentynlyevyentsov 5 months ago

    HA! Well, this was obvious.
  • MrSnaztastic 5 months ago

    I have just one question: first or third person?
  • liquidsoap89 5 months ago

    Well if nothing else, this is a really well made trailer.
  • valentynlyevyentsov 5 months ago

    So, Im guessing that there can be no TES 6 this year, judging by the subdued presentation... (to dodge calling it boring)
  • dingbat91 5 months ago

    Martin: It's in preparation for that shirt to come out as DLC for Skyrim, Fallout and Dishonoured.
  • zoanoid 5 months ago

    The Evil Again
  • igortresinari 5 months ago

    WHERE IS MAH LYING MAN???????
  • valentynlyevyentsov 5 months ago

    Eww okay, DRAMATIC!
  • MrSnaztastic 5 months ago

    Figures.
  • dingbat91 5 months ago

    I see they aren't going the stealth route in this trailer playthrough.
  • valentynlyevyentsov 5 months ago

    BILLY LURKE!!!
  • liquidsoap89 5 months ago

    Daud!
  • Damn_Skippy 5 months ago

    Motion controls in Skyrim, huh?
  • dingbat91 5 months ago

    Okay, Link armour in skyrim was not something I was expecting. let alone amiibo support. Wait for the Kirby Costume coming soon! XD
  • valentynlyevyentsov 5 months ago

    Oh my God!LINK IS IN SKYRIM!I am SHOOKETH!!!
  • Kami 5 months ago

    Lol, Link in Skyrim.
  • dingbat91 5 months ago

    @liquidsoap89 Probably a similar system attempt to minecraft's "community marketplace"
  • MrSnaztastic 5 months ago

    Bring back Pete Hines!
  • liquidsoap89 5 months ago

    @dingbat91 The word "credit" WAS used... I wonder what they're thinking with that.
  • valentynlyevyentsov 5 months ago

    Well this is... dry.
  • Damn_Skippy 5 months ago

    Microtransaction...microtransaction never changes.
  • Moedav 5 months ago

    I did not wake up for this....
  • dingbat91 5 months ago

    I sense an attempt at paid mods again...
  • MrSnaztastic 5 months ago

    Eyebrow raised.
  • Damn_Skippy 5 months ago

    ESO on PS4 was $5 I'll never get back...
  • Damn_Skippy 5 months ago

    A Deathclaw eating your face in VR could require extensive therapy to recover from.
  • liquidsoap89 5 months ago

    Okay Doom VR could be absolutely awesome.
  • zoanoid 5 months ago

    And Star Wipe
  • Kami 5 months ago

    It's not a party unless you hire some shrieking goons.
  • SpaceMonkey77 5 months ago

    Yo, give me some more new games for breakfast. Woot!
  • Damn_Skippy 5 months ago

    'VP of Marketing' is a title which instills a great deal of trust
  • Kami 5 months ago

    Oh look at the adorable Cacodemon! I want one!
  • Bertie 5 months ago

    Man, I love dragons
  • liquidsoap89 5 months ago

    Classic kids and their shenanigans.
  • Kami 5 months ago

    @Damn_Skippy - You win, I only got Zero Critical.
  • Damn_Skippy 5 months ago

    IHRA Professional Drag Racing 2017
  • Damn_Skippy 5 months ago

    @Kami Rage 2: Still Cranky Edition
  • Kami 5 months ago

    Oh we're going for obscure, then let's drop in Echelon for good measure.
  • Damn_Skippy 5 months ago

    'Wayne Gretzky Hockey 4'?
  • Kami 5 months ago

    @Damn_Skippy - Rage 2.
  • Ashkorsair 5 months ago

    :)
  • liquidsoap89 5 months ago

    And what a supposedly tiny paper weight it is!
  • valentynlyevyentsov 5 months ago

    Microsoft's conference was better. EA's was a snooze-fest. With that said, they were both disappointing. Microsoft yet again failed to bring the games, but they did make a fancy new paperweight though!
  • Damn_Skippy 5 months ago

    'Rogue Warrior Remastered,' anyone? *crickets*
  • Ashkorsair 5 months ago

    goodmorning martin.any wishes for this show?
  • Kami 5 months ago

    Morning Martin, my you seem cheery.
  • liquidsoap89 5 months ago

    I'd say EA's show was worse, but MS' was more disappointing.
  • Kami 5 months ago

    @Mr_Understanding - That's like asking what is worse, a kick to the crotch or a hammer to the face. Either way pain is involved.
  • Ashkorsair 5 months ago

    Microsoft, they ended with ea for chimps sake
  • MrSnaztastic 5 months ago

    A new DOOM campaign would be nice.
  • Mr_Understanding 5 months ago

    Who was worse Ea or Microsoft?
  • Ashkorsair 5 months ago

    i still have an hour in my nightshift left, so i hope it will be memorable.come on bethesda, make us scream(in delight or frustration either way is good after the lackluster ea and microsoft showings)
  • Kami 5 months ago

    Hey Rob, I'll take that over a port of Hunted: The Demons Forge any day of the week.
  • liquidsoap89 5 months ago

    "Quake Champions..."Well don't I look like a fool.
  • liquidsoap89 5 months ago

    It's not too early to hope for something from id is it?
  • valentynlyevyentsov 5 months ago

    I hope Bethesda took notes from Breath of the Wild for when they started making the next TES.
  • Kami 5 months ago

    Or a port of WET to the Switch.
  • Ashkorsair 5 months ago

    but they will probably end with fallout shelter for switch
  • Mr_Understanding 5 months ago

    Hope they have a new engine too.No more load times entering other peoples houses.
  • Ashkorsair 5 months ago

    wolfenstein 2! the first one on ps4 was a very pleasant surpirse
  • Mr_Understanding 5 months ago

    No Elder Scrolls Six = a bad conference
  • Kami 5 months ago

    You know they could drop Brink 2 on us, right?
  • MrSnaztastic 5 months ago

    That subtle distortion really is what really makes it.
  • liquidsoap89 5 months ago

    I'll take this pre-stream music over the other stuff we typically get any day of the week.
  • Kami 5 months ago

    Mr_Understanding - they're swearing at you. At least, the way my cat reacts to them, I assume bad language is involved...
  • MrSnaztastic 5 months ago

    If I'm staying up past 5AM to watch this, I seriously hope there's no more shoutcasters...
  • valentynlyevyentsov 5 months ago

    Also, LEL at "This stream will begin shortly." 30 mins is not shortly!!!
  • valentynlyevyentsov 5 months ago

    Meh. I'm honestly fed up with Skyrim at this point. I want a new Elder Scrolls.
  • Mr_Understanding 5 months ago

    Birds are making funny noises outside my window
  • MrSnaztastic 5 months ago

    I wonder if it'd be too early to show a new Elder Scrolls or Fallout title before the VR versions of them are out yet.
  • valentynlyevyentsov 5 months ago

    TES 6!??? (Please let it happen)
  • valentynlyevyentsov 5 months ago

    Nothing better than watching E3 on your night shift.
  • Mr_Understanding 5 months ago

    WE ALL GOING TO MAKE IT
  • Kami 5 months ago

    Oh and morning all!
  • Kami 5 months ago

    I'm trying to imagine something worse but all I get as a mental image is a big train wreck.
  • megatronix 5 months ago

    Elder Scrolls 9!!!
  • Damn_Skippy 5 months ago

    'Skyrim' Switch version reveal imminent?
  • Mr_Understanding 5 months ago

    am I going to make it?
  • Mr_Understanding 5 months ago

    H
  • Tom-Selleck 5 months ago

    5am! oh my aching eyes
  • funkstar 5 months ago

    they sleep all day work all night ;)

    I feel for the staff in the UK waiting for this...

Our live coverage has now ended. Here's what you missed: Updating...

04:25 By Robert Purchese

Good morning! The birds are chirping, my eyes sting and the sun isn't up. How are you all faring? Have you stayed up?

04:28 By Robert Purchese

Good shouts for Bethesda's conference include The Evil Within 2...

04:30 By Robert Purchese

Wolfenstein 2, Fallout VR and maybe oh maybe we'll get some confirmation about Skyrim Switch.

04:31 By Robert Purchese

Dare we dream for a sniff - a mere waft - of The Elder Scrolls 6? Remember, Bethesda unveiled Fallout 4 and six months later released it. I'm not sure it's ready to do the same again with TES6 today.

04:32 By Robert Purchese

I'm not sure why they feel the need to shout that they've woken up before everyone else, to be honest.

Mr_Understanding says:

04:36 By Robert Purchese

Coming to you holiday 2032!

megatronix says:

Elder Scrolls 9!!!

04:48 By Robert Purchese

Ha!

Kami says:

Or a port of WET to the Switch.

04:50 By Robert Purchese

Quake Champions...

liquidsoap89 says:

04:55 By Martin Robinson

Well gooooood morning.

04:55 By Martin Robinson

And a hearty salute to each and every one of you that's got up for this.

04:56 By Martin Robinson

And one to myself too for rolling over and picking up my laptop in this Ibis I'm staying in in Brighton.

04:56 By Martin Robinson

I only hit snooze on my phone once.

04:57 By Martin Robinson

That it ends in like five minutes so I can go back to sleep.

Ashkorsair says:

goodmorning martin.any wishes for this show?

04:58 By Martin Robinson

Anyway it'll be Wolfenstein, The Evil Within 2 and Skyrim plus maybe Fallout VR.

04:59 By Martin Robinson

If Rogue Warrior Remastered was here you'd hear my screams of excitement wherever you are. Still the only Bethesda game of recent years that's got my pulse racing.

05:01 By Martin Robinson

We start with a montage that's attempting to make the people at Bethesda seem a little more human.

05:03 By Martin Robinson

I just saw a Battlecry logo! That game was canned, obviously, but the studio lives on.

05:03 By Martin Robinson

And heeeeeeeeeeeeere's Pete Hines.

05:04 By Martin Robinson

The crowd lets out a shriek of what I can only describe as sheer terror as he comes out on stage.

05:04 By Martin Robinson

Actually maybe they're just screaming at that shirt.

05:04 By Martin Robinson

What on earth is going on with that?

05:05 By Martin Robinson

Pete, do a twirl so we can see it in all its horror.

05:05 By Martin Robinson

They've hired the shrieking goons again.

05:06 By Martin Robinson

And they're leading with VR.

05:06 By Martin Robinson

Shall I just go back to sleep?

05:06 By Martin Robinson

First up is Doom on Vive.

05:10 By Martin Robinson

Which has been doing the rounds as a tech demo for a while. It's a thing!

05:07 By Martin Robinson

And now Fallout 4 VR, which again was announced a while ago. It's also still a thing!

05:09 By Martin Robinson

From two games that we knew existed to The Elder Scrolls Online.

05:10 By Martin Robinson

Apologies, Doom VR wasn't announced as a full game, but a tech demo has been doing the rounds for a while.

05:11 By Martin Robinson

Both those VR titles coming out this year.

05:11 By Martin Robinson

Elder Scrolls Online is still being highlighted.

05:11 By Martin Robinson

This is Return to Morrowind, which is out now.

05:11 By Martin Robinson

Apologies if you woke up for this!

05:13 By Martin Robinson

My tired brain only just got what 'VFR' means in Doom VFR. That's tickled me a little.

05:13 By Martin Robinson

(The 'F' is a naughty word).

05:14 By Martin Robinson

Now here's that card game!

05:15 By Martin Robinson

Before that we had the announcement of Bethesda's Creation Club, which is alarming some people as it sounds like it could be paid mods.

05:16 By Martin Robinson

Details of that are thin at the moment - we're trying to find out exactly what it means.

05:17 By Martin Robinson

Skyrim on Switch!

05:17 By Martin Robinson

It has Amiibo support, with Zelda amiibos - lol at actually being able to find one of them - unlocking character costumes.

05:18 By Martin Robinson

Also motion control support, it looks like.

05:18 By Martin Robinson

Dishonored 2 DLC announce klaxon.

05:20 By Martin Robinson

Death of the Outsider, and it's out on September 15th.

05:21 By Martin Robinson

Quake Champions, which by all accounts is quite splendid, gets its moment in the spotlight.

05:21 By Martin Robinson

I'm still reeling from Pete Hines' shirt though tbh.

05:23 By Martin Robinson

And now, finally, a new, new game.

05:23 By Martin Robinson

Which looks very much like The Evil Within 2.

05:24 By Martin Robinson

It's more Mikami, which can only be a good thing.

05:25 By Martin Robinson

Absolutely no chance of that. I don't think we're expecting it for a few years yet!

valentynlyevyentsov says:

So, Iºm guessing that there can be no TES 6 this year, judging by the subdued presentation... (to dodge calling it boring)

05:25 By Martin Robinson

A CG trailer with a slow-burn cover of an old song. And a slow clap from me.

05:25 By Martin Robinson

Get in the sea.

05:27 By Martin Robinson

Finally here's some gameplay. It looks pretty sublime, though we only get a brief look.

05:28 By Martin Robinson

And it's out soon! Friday October 13th - seems like Bethesda's keen on the short marketing cycle after it worked so well for Fallout 4.

05:29 By Martin Robinson

Sweet relief, this is only 30 minutes long. I imagine we're ending on Wolfenstein.

05:30 By Martin Robinson

Will we get to see the game itself though?

05:30 By Martin Robinson

Ah yes, here we go.

05:32 By Martin Robinson

It takes the stylised alternate history of Machine Games' last Wolfenstein to a new extreme as we see Americana lorded over by strawberry milkshake-drinking Nazis.

05:32 By Martin Robinson

This looks alright.

05:36 By Martin Robinson

And now some proper gameplay. You shoot people, obviously, but it all looks terribly cool as you do so.

05:37 By Martin Robinson

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus.

05:37 By Martin Robinson

27th October.

05:37 By Martin Robinson

Pete Hines back onstage, doing a swear because Bethesda are edgy like that.

05:38 By Martin Robinson

The new Wolfenstein is probably the highlight of the show so far for me, though. It does look like something else.

05:38 By Martin Robinson

All those games will be out this year.

05:39 By Martin Robinson

A small cherry on an otherwise fairly dismal cake. That's a lot of money to spend for them to show everyone some trailers.

05:39 By Martin Robinson

You can all go back to bed now.

05:41 By Martin Robinson

To recap: VR, MMO, card game, paid for mods (we think) and DLC.

05:41 By Martin Robinson

But to cap it off The Evil Within 2 and the excellent looking Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, both of which will be playable before the year's end.

05:41 By Martin Robinson

So not too bad, really. I think I'm just tired and grouchy.

05:42 By Martin Robinson

Quite a wait until the next conference, with Ubisoft at 9pm tonight before Sony does its thing at 2am. Hope to see you there!
