Bethesda E3 round-up: Doom, Fallout 4 and Dishonored 2
Bethesda Softworks first time showcasing at the E3 Expo in LA revealed more info on the highly anticipated Fallout 4, Doom and Dishonoured 2. Here is a quick round up of what Bethesda developers announced when they hit the stage at E3 2015.
Developed by id software, the studio that pioneered the first-person shooter genre and created multiplayer Deathmatch, DOOM returns as a brutally fun and challenging modern-day shooter experience. Relentless demons, impossibly destructive guns, and fast, fluid movement provide the foundation for intense, first-person combat – whether you’re obliterating demon hordes through the depths of Hell in the single-player campaign, or competing against your friends in numerous multiplayer modes. Expand your gameplay experience using DOOM SnapMap game editor to easily create, play, and share your content with the world.
Combining elements of third-person action and fast-paced shooting, Battlecry offers a new gameplay experience with team-based combat, intense tactical warfare and competitive multiplayer action. Choose from 15 warriors, 3 factions and 5 classes during the beta – with even more warriors and classes coming online at launch! Choose YOUR warrior – each with a meaningfully distinct suite of attacks and abilities – from one of several factions from diverse parts of the world. With strategy, brutal attacks, and unique, high-tech weapons, fight for power and glory in 24-player large battles and smaller 12-player team battles across the WarZones. This is the life of a warrior, and victory is yours for the taking!
In a reimagined 20th century, all disagreements between the most powerful empires are settled head-on by elite teams of trained warriors from all over the world, with each member specializing in either high-tech ranged gadgetry or sophisticated melee weapons. Trained and bred for battle, they meet each other in sanctioned WarZones to face off for their share of glory!
Reprise your role as a supernatural assassin in Dishonored 2, the highly anticipated follow up to Arkane Studios’ 2012 Game of the Year! Explore a world unlike any other as either Emily Kaldwin or Corvo Attano – both powerful assassins with their own unique set of supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets. Define your own playstyle by blending immersive first-person action, assassination, stealth, mobility and the game’s brutal combat system. Combine the tools at your disposal to creatively eliminate your enemies whether you choose to pursue them unseen or ruthlessly attack head on with weapons drawn. Show no mercy and leave chaos in your wake or find a more subtle way to eliminate your targets. More than ever the choices you make will determine the outcome of each mission, and ultimately the game.
Dishonored 2 is set 15 years after the Lord Regent has been vanquished and the dreaded Rat Plague has passed into history. An otherworldly usurper has seized the throne from Empress Emily Kaldwin, leaving the fate of the Isles hanging in the balance. As either Emily Kaldwin or Corvo Attano, travel beyond the legendary streets of Dunwall to Karnaca – a once-dazzling coastal city that holds the key to restoring Emily to power. Armed with the mark of the Outsider and powerful new supernatural abilities, hunt down your enemies and forever alter the fate of the Empire.

Pursue your enemies under the cover of darkness or ruthlessly attack them head on with weapons drawn. The outcome of each mission plays out based on the choices you make.
The Elder Scrolls: Legends
The Elder Scrolls: Legends was only teased and no concrete details were given. From the trailer, the game appears to take elements from the past, present and future of The Elder Scrolls franchise and integrate them into a competitive strategy card game. This may be seen as a reaction to the success of Hearthstone, the other competitive strategy card game available on mobile, tablet and PC. The Elder Scrolls: Legends will be available on mobile, tablet devices, and PC later this year.
