Bethesda at E3 2019: Deathloop and Ghostwire Tokyo enliven muted show

Elsewhere, the hack'n'slash adventure Elder Scrolls Blades, recently released on smartphones, is coming to Nintendo Switch, and there's to be a free-to-play smartphone return for Id Software's old platforming hero, Commander Keen, out in the summer.

Fallout 76 will get a new free update called "Wastelanders" that will add computer-controlled human NPC characters that will give players new main quests and have "full dialogue trees". It seems like every Bethesda game is getting dragons these days. They announce solo arena battles, a custom jewelry system and dragon questline are coming to the game tonight.

At Bethesda's E3 2019 press conference they announced the launch of the latest expansion for The Elder Scrolls: Legends, which will be The Elder Scrolls: Legends - Moons of Elsweyr. It's the flawless time to give it a try thanks to the massive new update.

Bethesda's press conference is on June 9, starting at 5:30 p.m. PT, 8:30 p.m. ET. DOOM Eternal launches on 11.22.19. It will feature cross-play and carry over progress from the mobile version as well. First he reminders the audience about Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot, a VR game where you take over and control Nazi mechs to turn them against their makers.

There will be two new Wolfenstein games coming out, both of which were mentioned at last year's show.

Machine Games executive producer Jerk Gustafsson is on next to talk about Wolfenstein. We're told it's the biggest Wolfenstein to date, and unlike The New Colossus, the trailer focused nearly entirely on gameplay instead of the story. We got a look at the result of their hard work with the reveal of Orion, a new tech that optimizes game engines for streaming. We'll get to see more of the spin-off, which is being co-developed by MachineGames and Arkane Studios. It pits one beefed up Slayer against two player demons, and it looks like it could be a lot of fun. It'll have a multiplayer mode called "Battlemode". And with Doom Eternal on the way, we know that things are going to be amped up in the show. Like Dishonored, it'll all be about playing the way you want to play.
