For those who were hoping for the announcement of an Elder Scrolls release this year, you got what you asked for - kind of.
Bethesda, the company behind games such as Fallout, Doom, and Elder Scrolls announced that a new Elder Scrolls game is coming to iOS. It will also be playable in a single-player mode, like the previous games. Players who were more into the story and talking will have to wait and see how 76 develops in that area when the game hits November 14 this year. Described as a new "space epic" with strong singleplayer focus, Starfield is now in production phases and is actually in a playable state.
Fallout 76 is the next evolution of Fallout - a survival game with other players. For starters, Bethesda has announced The Elder Scrolls VI, but the studio didn't stop there. Unfortunately, not much more was shown or said during the event, but studio boss Todd Howard has spilled a little more information taking to Geoff Keighley on the YouTube E3 stream.
This mobile card game from Bethesda is all set to hit Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4 later this year, but before that it is getting a major makeover. Future updates will also have a random arcade-style challenge mode called Moon Crash in addition to a competitive multiplayer mode, where five mimics team up to kill one human player. The game also lets you build out the town in your game as you play as the empire's top agents: The Blades. Doom Eternal doesn't have a release date, but we'll see the first gameplay on August 10th.
Finally, "Dying Light 2" was revealed and showed the intriguing ecosystem of the game's setting, all of which forks and bends on whatever action you take and give each playthrough a unique flavour. One could make several comparisons between these descriptions and the views scene from TES 6's teaser trailer - but there's more. While Bethesda got made fun of for porting Skyrim over to every sort of console it could last E3, the announcement of a new Elder Scrolls game is sure to get people's excitement back up.
Potentially, that means that The Elder Scrolls VI and Starfield are more likely to arrive on the next wave of platforms, whenever they may eventually surface. Bethesda plans to port Blades to PC, consoles, and release a VR version. Space exploration and open-world RPGs haven't always worked and anyone who played "No Man's Sky" when it first landed can attest to that.
