Yesterday’s Bethesda showcase focused on a few key properties, but was fairly packed with news on almost all of their series’.
There was quite a bit packed into Bethesda’s almost two hours of programming last night. The company ran the gamut from cell phone games to the big triple-A titles. And yes, that included all of the big boys like Doom, Wolfenstein, The Elder Scrolls, and Commander Keen. What?
If you want to watch the show thing all the way though, we have that for you right below this paragraph. If not, and you’d prefer the highlights, we’ve got those too. Just keep scrolling.
Bethesda’s biggest game of 2019 is the sequel to the smash hit 2016 Doom, and looks bigger, faster, and bloodier than before. The first real extended look at gameplay had some very interesting little tidbits about story too.
Included is a look at an “angelic” realm that hasn’t been seen before in any version of Doom. The Doom universe looks to be heading in a very interesting direction in Eternal.
Past the new looks at the campaign, Bethesda also showed off the new multiplayer mode called BattleMode. This new way to play Doom sets three players on a collision course in a 2 v 1 experience.
One person takes control of a fully armed DoomSlayer, while the other two man demons from Doom’s bestiary. All in all it looks just as fast and insane as Doom’s campaign.
Doom hits consoles and the PC on November 22nd.
Yes, Fallout 76 is still going. No, Bethesda doesn’t seem to be giving up on it anytime soon or sending it to free-2-play hell… though this new expansion for the game is most definitely on the arm.
Fallout 76: Nuclear Winter is a pretty chunky new infusion of stuff for the game.
A brand new IP for Bethesda, from Tang Gameworks, Ghostwire presents a an action/adventure that’s looking like it could be one to watch.
After strange disappearances hit Tokyo’s population, it’s up to you to uncover the source and purge the city of a strange, new evil. Armed with your own mysterious spectral abilities, you will face down the occult, unravel conspiracy theories and experience urban legends like never before.
Don’t fear the unknown. Attack it.Bethesda press release
Another new IP for Bethesda, this one from Arkane Lyon. Deathloop looks awesome in its very first tease. Like Ghostwire, there’s no gameplay here, but the action is awesome, and the story behind Deathloop sounds terrific.
Looking better than it has in previous trailers is Wolfenstein: Youngblood. With an emphasis on co-op play, Youngblood rockets the Wolf series into the 80s, and places players in the power-armor of original hero BJ’s twin daughters.
They’re on the hunt for their dad, and heading right into the heart of the storm – Europe.
Wolfenstein: Youngblood is on track for a July 26th release.
Aside from the above, there was plenty more shown off at the Bethesda presser. Included were looks at the newest The Elder Scrolls… Online (sorry) expansion, The Elder Scrolls Legends, fresh Rage 2 expansions, and a rebirth for Commander Keen.

You might not want to watch the first trailer. If you do, good luck getting the theme song out of your head.
