There is also the new multiplayer competitive mode Typhon Hunter that consists in hide and seek. The player will face 5 Mimic players able to disguise themselves as everyday objects.
That is not all, the game will be available in VR!
Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
The game will be ported to the Switch.
This new co-op game will take place in 1980s Paris during the resistance. We will play as B.J.’s twin daughters in a brand-new co-op experience. The trailer depicted a very hostile Paris occupied by the Nazis. The daughters will take the lead, armed and armored to the teeth.
You will play as a hacker who can turn cyber machines against their pilots, all in VR.
Skyrim: Very Special Edition
Meant as a joke, Bethesda pokes fun at their numerous Skyrim ports, teasing how it will be available for Alexa commands, Etch-a-Sketch, pager and the Samsung refrigerator.
Plot-wise, Vault 76 celebrates its 300th birthday in 2076. For the occasion of Reclamation Day, the vault opens to let us out into the vast lush and vibrant wasteland. Designed with new rendering, lighting and landscape as well as a distant weather system, there will be 16 times the detail from the previous entries. The Overseer will send us on quests across 6 different regions and meet new creatures based on West Virginia folklore.
As for the grand announcement, Fallout 76 will be entirely online. Defined as a “softcore survival”, death will never have us lose progression or characters. You will also be able to join a friend and carry your progression over with you. Co-op is encouraged.
As for gameplay mechanics, the crafting system now allows you to build what you want and move it where you want. Constructing architecture will be revamped but beware enemies who will sometimes attack your home! In addition, nuclear missiles and weapons will be spread at random on the map for the sole purpose of letting people use them at their leisure. With the Power of the Atom, chaos guaranteed. Keep your eyes opened for the Beta!
There will also be a Collector’s Edition that includes:
- Glow in the dark map
- Figures to put on the map
- Wearable power armor helmet
- Voice modulation device
Date: November 14, 2018
The acclaimed post-apocalyptic micromanagement mobile game is coming on PS4 and the Switch (with the Joy-Con or the touch controls). Still free, it is available now!
The Elder Scrolls: Blades
This new mobile game is sure to interest fans of the other major Bethesda franchise. Still a first-person RPG but with console-quality graphics, The Elder Scrolls: Blades expands on the story of the Blades, these Empire agents who were exiled and returned to their destroyed town.
There will be a strong emphasis on rebuilding the Blade’s hometown from the ground up, decorating multiple individual elements to our liking. You will also be able to visit your friends’ towns.
Our main character will still be customizable and make use of the level up system. As for combat, it looks a lot like the Skyrim mechanics with melee, spells and abilities. Interestingly, the entire game will be playable in portrait mode; you never know when you need a free hand!
There will be 3 game modes: Abyss will be an endless dungeon; Arena will allow one-on-one battles; Town will be the main story mode.
The game is coming out for mobile, PC, Console and VR and all will be connected to each other. You can pre-order now and pre-register for Early Access.
Date: Fall 2018 (Free)
Todd Howard presented a new Bethesda IP, describing it as a new epic franchise. For now, all we saw was one shot of a satellite in space slowly drifting towards the surface of a planet. We cannot wait to hear more.
The Elder Scrolls VI
To close the show, we were blessed with what many believed highly unlikely: a first glimpse into The Elder Scrolls VI. There was just one aerial shot of an expensive world, lush and mountainous but already, the graphics look spectacular.
