E3 2016: Bethesda Softworks Conference

Second conference of this year’s E3. Bethesda Softworks opened up with a surprise announcement: Quake Champions. This is a PC exclusive game with unlock frame rates and designed for ESports. The game will feature a variety of unique characters with unique styles. More about Quake Champions will be announced at QuakeCon in August.


Bethesda followed this announcement with highlights from the last year on their various games and launches. They also gave more details on The Elder Scrolls: Legends, a card game coming to PC, Mac, iOS and Android. Beta sign up is also now available at https://legends.bethesda.net.


If you have not heard yet, you will be happy to know that Fallout 4 is getting more DLCs! Three more DLCs releasing in June, July and August 2016 with some quite interesting features. The third DLC called Nuka-World will also be the last DLC of Fallout 4 and will be massive. Fallout Shelter, the mobile game, is also getting some more content and is coming to PC. Some more announcements that came at the same time is about Skyrim. The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim is being remastered with a special edition and will come to PS4 and XBO.
