Bethesda decided to be a little different and host their press conference the day before everyone else. That means they cleverly give themselves a little breathing room to enjoy the excitement that announcing a release date for Fallout 4 will bring.
Of course, there was more, including Doom gameplay, Dishonored 2 and more. This is what you may have missed from the Bethesda E3 press conference.
Please note, this article will be updated continually with any relevant information as it becomes available.
Via the press release, the key features of the game are:
Freedom and Liberty!
Do whatever you want in a massive open world with hundreds of locations, characters, and quests. Join multiple factions vying for power or go it alone, the choices are all yours.
Be whoever you want with the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. character system. From a Power Armored soldier to the charismatic smooth talker, you can choose from hundreds of Perks and develop your own playstyle.
Super Deluxe Pixels!
An all-new next generation graphics and lighting engine brings to life the world of Fallout like never before. From the blasted forests of the Commonwealth to the ruins of Boston, every location is packed with dynamic detail.
Violence and V.A.T.S.!
Intense first or third person combat can also be slowed down with the new dynamic Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System (V.A.T.S) that lets you choose your attacks and enjoy cinematic carnage.
Collect and Build!
Collect, upgrade, and build thousands of items in the most advanced crafting system ever. Weapons, armor, chemicals, and food are just the beginning – you can even build and manage entire settlements.
There were announcements about the original and a sequel at the conference. Dishonored 2 has been confirmed and will feature two playable characters. The game will be released in 2016 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Also heading to the current-gen consoles is Dishonored: Definitive Edition, which will be released on 25 August in North America and 28 August in Europe. The bundle will feature the original game (remastered for the more ‘powerful’ consoles of course), as well as all the DLC released.
Doom will be out in ‘spring 2016’ and will feature a “relentless campaign”, the “return of id multiplayer”, as well as “endless possibilities”. The game will be available for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
