Bethesda reveals new Wolfenstein game, Evil Within 2, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider,...

  1. Bethesda had the unenviable task of following Microsoft (albeit many hours later) with its pre-e3 press briefing yesterday. The developer and publisher unveiled some excellent trailers at the event, including a new Wolfenstein title and standalone Dishonored chapter.

    Following on from 2014’s brilliant Wolfenstein: The New Order and 2015’s Wolfenstein: The Old Blood comes the next chapter in the story of B.J. Blazkowicz (who is also appearing in Quake Champions) and his fight against the Nazis. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is set during 1961 where the hero is trying to take back a conquered America with the help of resistance fighters. The game is set for release on October 27th. Check out the awesome, and very long, trailer below.

    Despite selling fewer copies than its predecessor, Dishonored 2 was many people’s ‘Game of 2016.’ On September 15, fans can return to the steampunk universe in a sort-of sequel to both the second game and the episodic story DLC from the original Dishonored, though Bethesda is calling this expansion a “standalone story.”

    Dishonored: Death of the Outsider puts you in the boots of Dreadful Whale Captain Meagan Foster, aka Billy Lurk, who we see rescuing her former master, Daud. The man who murdered Empress Jessamine Kaldwin tells Lurk she must now hunt down the all-powerful Outsider. No word yet on price or the game’s length.

    Microsoft may have failed to mention virtual reality at its event, but Bethesda was happy to show off two VR experiences in Doom and Fallout 4. Doom VFR looks impressive, and, like several other VR titles, lets players move about using teleportation. Fallout 4 VR, meanwhile, adds some new features to the 2015 title to make it work as a virtual reality experience.

    We thought The Evil Within 2 might appear at last year’s E3, but it was a no-show. Yesterday, however, Bethesda revealed the first trailer for the sequel to Shinji Mikami’s 2014 horror. It will launch on October 13 - a Friday, fittingly.

    Players will once again take on the role of police office Sebastian Castellanos, who has discovered the daughter he presumed to be dead is still alive. It also features a snazzy cover of Duran Duran’s Ordinary World.

    Bethesda revealed some info on the Switch version of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, including amiibo support and the ability to dress up as Link.

    There was also an announcement for the Creation Club, an in-game mod storefront for Fallout 4 and Skyrim. It features curated content from “the very best” of community creators and Bethesda itself that can be bought with real money.

  2. Wolfenstein --> Possibly interesting

    Dishonored --> Pass

    DOOM VR --> Not sure this will translate well to teleport style VR

    Fallout 4 VR --> Meh

    Evil Within 2 --> Why?

    Creation Club --> Activision DLC model applied to modding. Redundant on PC but possibly a cash cow on console. Very interesting.

    You where rather generous with the "and more" title remark there: almost **** else would be more adequate.

    Yeah, the Wolfenstein trailer makes it look pretty good, now we'll just have to see if the game measures up to the hype. The rest I can do without although having some new "free" features for Fallout 4 would be nice, especially if they were part of those "add ons" that were hyped, but never developed .....

    Never played Wolfenstein, but the trailer looks cool. Dishonored looks like an eventual buy. Otherwise, underwhelming...

    It's just more sequels and then VR, something I really don't care about.

    Kinda of disappointed, what happened to the new stuff they said they're working on? Aside from some time wasting when you pick these games up on steam sale, no one really cares about any of that stuff. Either tell us what you're working on that's making us wait a number of years for the next ES or just shut up.

    As much as I did enjoy Fallout 4, Bethesda filled it with social justice. You could see the starting of this kind of trend in Skyrim when compared to older ES games, which were dark. The older ES games were very dark, the older Fallout games were very dark(although humorous).

    And I hate to say this, but hardly anyone at all cares about VR.
  9. Bethesda is a converged organization. They will continue to insert social justice into their games until the money dries up. This is why I'm skeptical about the upcoming Wolfenstein. What are the odds this will have less to do with vengeful Nazis and more to do with "nationalism bad, diversity good"?

    Oh yeah! I will be playing this. The last Wolfenstein was amazing. Amazing story and challenging game play. Not to leave out... You get to kill Nazi's. Not the BS ones the left calls everyone else, but honest to hell Nazi's; in creative and exciting ways too.

    Looks like this continues off the previous game. Before getting this one, I would HIGHLY recommend getting it so you have a better understanding of whats going on. The Uber short version... The Nazi's won the war.
