Bethesda | E3 2019
Fallout 76 – Massive Updates
Big changes are coming to Fallout 76 that will drastically change the game as we know it. It appears that Bethesda has really been listening to player’s demands as the developer/publisher plans to add new quests, human NPCs, and real RPG dialogue choices in an update entitled Wastelanders.
This overhauling new content will arrive sometime in “Fall 2019”, and you can get a glimpse of what’s to come in this new trailer.
In addition, Fallout 76 appears to have caught the Battle Royale bug that’s been going around. The new PvP mode entitled Nuclear Winter will be available for a “sneak peek” today, 10th June! Check out the trailer for it here.
Rage 2 DLC
Rage 2 hasn’t been out a month and its first round of DLC is right around the corner. Bethesda dropped a new trailer for the expansion titled “Rise of the Ghosts” during its E3 press conference.
Promises of new enemies, new vehicles, new weapons, and new weekly content updates are also in the teaser. Take a look at all the action right here.
Elder Scrolls Online DLC
Elsweyr has just released to critical acclaim, and the Season of the Dragon has officially begun. Before it’s over, Bethesda will release two more DLC packs that were just announced today.
“Scalebreaker” will arrive sometime in August, and “Dragonhold” will complete the trilogy sometime afterward. Take a look at the cinematic teaser for this dragon-filled content and get hyped!
Bethesda saved the best for last. In addition to a sizable chunk of brutal gameplay, we were given a release date for when we can “go to hell”. Doom Eternal will arrive on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on 22nd November this year… and boy does it look good.
Devolver Digital | E3 2019
As usual, the Devolver Digital press conference was filled with comedy, satire, and gore– just like their games! Here’s the important news you should know about:
- A “reverse horror” game called Carrion is coming in 2020. “Reverse” meaning you’re the monster hunting down the frightened humans.
- A new game called Fall Guys is coming in 2020.
- A collection of “bootlegs” based on popular Devolver Digital titles is out now. Devolver Bootleg features retro-style rip-offs of real DD releases.
