Check out the highlights of this year's E3 Bethesda conference!

 

Fallout 4 VR (PC for the HTC Vive)

 

 

In the first of two VR announcements from Bethesda, Fallout 4 is coming to VR. The VR version promises full access to the game's world allowing you to do everything from using VR enhanced V.A.T.S against the creepy crawlies of the waste land to … well ... decorating your room.

 

 

Doom VFR (PC for the HTC Vive and PlayStation VR)

 

 

In another VR announcement you can finally live that childhood fantasy of liquefying demons with the BFG. Bethesda is letting you fully immerse yourself in the world of Doom as you take up the mantel of the Doom Guy in Doom VFR.

 

 

Creation club (paid mods)

 

 

Bethesda announced Creation Club, a whole new way of adding content into the games. Complete with Bethesda support and backing you can now buy all sorts of insane mods for Skyrim and Fallout 4 from Bethesda, their outside development partners, and the best community creators.

 

 

Skyrim on Switch

 

 

The fan favorite Skyrim is coming to the Switch and will feature motion controls and even the ability to emulate Breath of the Wild in full Link gear.

 

 

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider DLC (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

 

 

In this trailer for Dishonored 2 DLC we hear a eerie reimagining of a classic sailor shanty while some comically burly men get (presumably) what’s coming to them as “the notorious Billie Lurk” makes her return to take down the Outsider. The first Dishonored 2 DLC will be coming September 15, 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. 

 

 

The Evil Within 2 (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

 

 

You ever get those days when you just can’t catch a break? It looks like Detective Sebastian Castellanos certainly does in the trailer for the follow up to The Evil Within. The trailer seems to be playing playing disconcerting image bingo with the only thing missing being a creepy clown. The Evil Within 2 is fittingly set for release Friday the 13th, October 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

 

 

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

 

 

BJ Blazkowicz is back to face off against the Nazi’s who have occupied his homeland in Wolfenstein II. Bethesda unveiled the trailer for the sequel to the sleeper hit Wolfenstein: The New Order which looks full of new armor, toys, abilities and Nazis to absolutely obliterate. The sequel is hitting October 27 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

 

 

Quake Champions (PC)

 

 

Speaking of BJ Blazkowics, Bethesda announced he would be joining the roster on Quake Champions closed beta, along with new maps and weapons. A $1million prize pool was also announced for the Quake World Championships happening at QuakeCon.

 

 

The Elder Scrolls: Legends – Heroes of Skyrim (PC, Mac, Steam, iPad, and Android tablet)

 

 

A Skyrim expansion was announced for Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls themed card game computer and tablet.

 

 

The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind (PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac)

 

 

A trailer for new Elder Scrolls Online content was released with new content for Morrowind Chapter, and upcoming Horns of the Reach and Clockwork City DLC on the horizon.
