E3 2018: Bethesda Press Conference Trailers — Fallout 76, Elder Scrolls 6, Rage 2

Bethesda has wrapped up its E3 2018 press conference with a series of big announcements and brand-new trailers. One of the biggest moments of the events was, of course, Fallout 76, which received new details and a new trailer following its reveal at Microsoft’s press conference earlier in the day.

There were also new trailers for Rage 2, and more. Check out all of the new trailers below, and for all of the top updates from the event, read our round-up of all of the top news from Bethesda’s press conference.

Doom Eternal

Doom Eternal is the sequel to the series’ 2016 reboot, and Bethesda says it features twice as many demons as the original game. The developer didn’t reveal many other details about the new title, but it did share a cinematic trailer that gives fans a peek at the game’s setting: a grisly Hell on Earth. Doom Eternal will have its public unveiling during Quakecon on August 10.

The Elder Scrolls Blades

Bethesda’s acclaimed RPG series makes its mobile debut in The Elder Scrolls Blades. Described as a “massive first-person RPG” with “console-quality graphics,” Blades features an all-new combat system as well as handcrafted and procedurally-designed dungeons to explore. The game launches for free on mobile this fall.

The Elder Scrolls Legends

Bethesda’s strategy card game, The Elder Scrolls Legends, is relaunching with “brand-new, totally overhauled visuals.” The game will release on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch later this year, but players who jump into the PC or mobile versions now will be able to carry their progress over to the console versions after they launch.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset

Bethesda shared a new trailer for The Elder Scrolls Online‘s latest expansion, Summerset, but even more DLC packs are on the way to the game soon. During its press conference, Bethesda gave players a glimpse at two more expansions in development for ESO: Wolfhunter and Murkmire, both of which are slated to release later this year.

The Elder Scrolls VI

Nearly seven years after Skyrim originally debuted, Bethesda announced the next installment in its open-world RPG series, The Elder Scrolls VI. The publisher didn’t share any details about the game or hint at when it will launch, but it did share a brief teaser video that shows off a vast, sprawling world.

Fallout 76

As suspected, Fallout 76 is a prequel to all of the previous games in the series. In the trailer shown during the Microsoft showcase earlier, we see a character wearing a very old-looking Power Armor. The trailer then showed off the world, which didn’t look as rough as the Fallout worlds we’re used to seeing. There was some vibrancy to it, and this is what players will seek to restore.

Fallout 76 is about rebuilding, and all the people who emerge from the Vault will be responsible for forging a new beginning. Although there was no confirmation of a release date for Fallout 76, pre-orders for the game will begin on June 15.

Prey Mooncrash

One of the most unexpected surprises from Bethesda’s E3 press conference was Prey Mooncrash, a free update available now for the first-person game. Mooncrash is set in a simulation on the moon, with the objective being to escape. However, each time you play, it features different enemy and hazard placements, making each runthrough unique.

Quake Champions

Bethesda’s arena shooter Quake Champions is still in early access, but for a limited time, all players will have a chance to try it out. From June 10-17, Bethesda is hosting a free trial for the game. If you download it this week, you can continue playing the game for free, even after the trial period ends.

Rage 2

Rage 2 is Bethesda’s other big game in the spotlight. Like the original Rage, it’s an open-world shooter set in a post-apocalyptic environment with a very Mad Max vibe. We don’t have much confirmed info about the game yet, other than that it’ll release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019. The game is being developed by id Software, known for the first Rage game and the stellar 2016 remake of Doom, and Avalanche Studios, known for dense open-world games like Just Cause.

Starfield

Starfield marks Bethesda’s first new franchise in 25 year. Bethesda shared very few details about the game, but the publisher described it as a “next-generation single-player epic,” and its brief teaser trailer hints at a space setting.

Wolfenstein Youngblood

Wolfenstein Youngblood is a new installment in the shooter series, starring the twin daughters of protagonist BJ Blazkowicz. The game takes place in Paris during 1980 and can be played either cooperatively or solo. Bethesda didn’t announce what platforms the game is coming to, but it will be released in 2019.
