Many were looking forward to Bethesda’s E3 2019 conference. While we were expecting more news on the next DOOM and Wolfenstein games, we were also secretly hoping that Bethesda would have a few aces up their sleeves.
Although we ultimately didn’t see all the announcements we were hoping for, Bethesda once again showed off some exciting new games.
Here are some of the biggest announcements from American video game publisher:
DOOM Eternal – Killing demons looks so much fun
Bethesda released a brand new trailer for the upcoming DOOM Eternal revealing more about the game’s narrative.
Yes, it seems there is more to the game than just punching demons in the face. That DOOM guy will be heading to Heaven and Hell in the new game.
Bethesda also showed off the game’s multiplayer.
The game is set for release on the 22nd of November 2019 and we can’t wait to kick some demon butt.
Fallout 76 – NPC’s are back
Ask most Fallout 76 players what they miss the most while playing the game and they should all shout out in unison” NPCs. Well, Bethesda has heard their cries with the next Fallout 76 DLC bringing back NPCs, including branching dialogue trees which Bethesda says will offer various choices with consequences.
This is something that many feels should’ve been included in the original release but it is great to see Bethesda learning from their mistakes.
GhostWire: Tokyo – Another spooky game from Shinji Mikami
For those wondering what Shinji Mikami, the mind behind The Evil Within series, was busy with, he is working on a brand new game called Ghostwire: Tokyo.
While not much was revealed about the game, the teaser trailer did give us a glimpse at some spirits haunting modern-day Japan.
Accor4ding to the game’s creative director not all of these spirits are dangerous, but judging from experience we are quite sure that most of them will be out for the player’s blood.
Deathloop – The new game from Arkane Studios
Many have been wondering what Arkane Studios, the team behind the Dishonored series, have been up to the last few years. Well, they have been working on a game called Deathloop.
The game has an interesting premise and revolves around two protagonists who find themselves trapped in a time loop and having to kill each other over and over. Basically, it sounds like a more violent version of the movie Groundhog Day.
It’s an action-packed game that allows players to dual wield uzis, which, in our books, makes the game automatically cooler.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood – The girls are back in town
During the conference, we were also treated to a new trailer for the upcoming Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
The trailer showed off some gameplay featuring BJ’s daughters Jess and Soph Blazkowicz killing Nazis, of course.
Like father like daughters, I guess.
The game is set for release on the 26th of July 2019.
Commander Keen – the 90s’ is back in fashion
For those old enough to remember, back in the ’90s, there was a popular game called Commander Keen developed by id Software. The game starred a kid exploring weird alien landscapes. Now, that kid is back as Dadmiral Keen and has been kidnapped. It’s up too twin’s Billie and Billy to save their dad.
Unlike the original game, the new Commander Keen game will be heading to mobile devices.
Here’s hoping that it is just as much fun as the original was way back when.
