Thankfully this conference was short, and that it ended with two games that made the rest of it somewhat more tolerable. That being said, Bethesda, honestly did not have enough to really need to have another E3 event for the third year in a row. With that being said, it was not a terrible event, it was just, shall we say, unneeded. The introductory video that humanized the people that make these games was a nice gesture, and with it being short, it did not feel out of place. However, they played a montage of games that have already released, it rang hollow, because that was how the conference started last year.
It was a blessedly short segment, that did not need to be there. After that they introduced "Bethesdaland" which was their attempt to be cute it seems, though the introduction lasted slightly longer than it should have, and was needlessly chatty. After that, after that Pete Hines came out, and sang the praises of their recent titles with video being played, which was also utilized by them last year. Bethesda VR was mentioned, and Doom VFR was shown, which uses teleportation movement, and seems to take place before the main game, along with Fallout 4 VR which seems to be the full game, playable in VR. Both of these games are seemingly releasing this year, and so far, only for the Vive. There was a video pertaining to the new "Morrowwind DLC" for The Elder Scrolls Online, which had no real purpose to be there than other to take up screen time.
After that, there was the announcement of the Bethesda Creation Club, which is a more in depth marketplace to get mods for your Bethesda games, on consoles, and PC. This seems to be the revival of their idea to charge for game mods, which went over so well last time, apparently you need to buy credits with real money in which you use to be able to download "premium" mods to your Bethesda games. Moving on from that, they showed the "Heroes Of Skyrim" pack which releases on 29, June, 2017, and the game will come to Android and Apple at the same time. Skyrim on Switch has been officially been announced, it has Amiibo support, and it looks pretty terrible graphics wise. The Dishonored series will be getting a Standalone game where you play as an associate of Doud's, Billie, which is titled "Death Of The Outsider, with a 15, Sep, 2017 release date. A cringe inducing Quake: Champions video was shown and mention of a Quake competition being held at QuakeCon, they moved right along to the reveal of Evil Within 2, which looks good, with a release date of Friday, 13, Oct 2017. Before the stream ended they showed an extended story trailer of Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, with a 27, Oct, 2017 release date.
While the conference did end pretty strongly, the inconsistent pacing, and the sheer lack of any real substance made this show a bit of a letdown, but thankfully the show was as short as it was, otherwise it would have been a bit worse, but it still felt like with what was actually revealed there was no need to have a conference, especially with how late it was broadcast. Tomorrow starts early with the PC show at 10 am, and here is hoping that it is at the very least as entertaining as it was last year.
