E3 2019: Bethesda Conference Part One

Bethesda teases Fallout 76 Wastelanders, Deathloop, Doom Eternal, Ghostwire: Tokyo.

Fallout 76 hasn’t had the best year since it was released, Todd Howard had to come forward and address this situation; probably one of the most awkward moments in his career having a game that has had so many issues, with the story seeming scarce, or players finding exploits left and right, then having to release a patch to fix it. Moving off the subject, they introduce the Wastelanders Expansion. Also being released is a new mode called Nuclear Winter, a battle royale that is a Last-Team-Standing setup. In the link provided, there will be an explanation of how to participate in the Pre-Beta and the rules for participation. The Sneak Peek will be available until June 17th.

It has been a popular trend lately to have games or movies with something broken down and abandoned, take for example a crashed Space Station; it slammed into the middle of the Black Reef. Arkane’s latest game is about two people on a frozen island called the Black Reef, in a time loop or ‘Death Loop’ one seeks to preserve it while the other seeks to break it. Riots, spooky environments with flickering ghosts, supernatural powers, and it wouldn’t be complete without a rivalry between two protagonists, Julianna and Colt. There isn’t a release date yet.

Well, grab your pitchfork and your favorite gun, because on November 22nd, 2019 its time to venture back into hell! Coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One it is Doom Eternal, it followed an interesting trailer highlighting Battlemode which is pitting two demon-controlling (and spawning) users against one fully tricked out human Doom Slayer. The story is set up to be a sequel of DOOM 2016, plenty more footage will most likely be shown at Quakecon but hey, you can get a really cool Helmet for your collection if you pre-order the Collector’s Edition.

Known to be Horror Specialists and for the Evil Within videogames, Tango GameWorks bringing a brand of foreboding and grisly adventure, occult-inflected suspense to the streets of Tokyo. The player must clean out the demonic infestation that has caused disappearances in Tokyo. Also, the Creative Director Ikumi Nakamura was quite a gem in the presentation, known for her work in Okami and Bayonetta it made this Gamer quite happy to see someone like Nakamura handling a project like this.

Time to travel back to Paris, 1980 in this new Wolfenstein game, the story is about  B.J. Blazcowicz’s twin daughters, Jess and Soph, are looking for their father; although with it being in the 80s (and of course it is set in an alternate reality where the Nazis won in World War II) makes me curious if we’ll see anybody with big hair and outrageous fashion as we did when growing up in the 1980s.
