Starfield is the first new Bethesda IP in 25 years

What, you thought Bethesda was going to end their annual E3 press conference with a look at an Elder Scrolls mobile game? Two new Wolfenstein games were also unveiled, namely Youngblood and Cyberpilot.

Bethesda only released a 36-second teaser for the highly anticipated game, which featured maybe about 10-seconds of actual footage. United Kingdom developers Ninja Theory (makers of Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice) and Playground Games (of Forza Horizon) are both now Microsoft studios. In the game, some of the dungeons are handcrafted while others are procedurally generated. Blades contains combat in the same vein as the fighting Elder Scrolls fans will be familiar with. Bethesda's showcase just ended, where the company revealed new games and DLC, including Fallout 76 and Rage 2. You'll be trying to upgrade and enhance your custom-made character, but also trying to rebuild your ruined town to create your own virtual city. Nuclear weapons will also be a menacing presence in the game, with players searching for launch codes before firing missiles at whatever they want.

After a relatively slow Bethesda keynote, executive producer Todd Howard has taken the curtain off the publisher's next big IP: Starfield.

Further details about the game are not yet shared.
