Bethesda is reaching for the stars at this year's E3 event in Los Angeles, hinting that the acclaimed video game publisher will be showing off more about the upcoming release of Starfield and plenty of other titles.
Boasting some of the best gaming franchises out there, Bethesda has carved a name for itself with the likes of Fallout, Wolfenstein, The Elder Scrolls, Doom, and more. Hoping to continue the success of last year's expo, there's sure to be plenty of new announcements alongside updates on the projects Bethesda unveiled at last year's showcase.
Posting on Twitter and sent to us via email, Bethesda teased what fans can expect at this year's E3. Admittedly, there isn't a lot to go on and the full showcase is just speculation for now. Although there's no location just yet, Bethesda's E3 showcase will take place on Sunday, June 9 in Los Angeles at 5:30 PM PT. The tweet showed a theme of "Be together" as it gathered various mythical creatures and monster's from the company's back catalog.
Start speculating! Refresh @WalmartCanada. Most importantly… save the date! #BE3 is coming on Sunday, June 9th (5:30 PM PT).— Bethesda (@bethesda) March 18, 2019
More details -- including registration -- are coming soon. Can't attend? We will be streaming the whole thing live! #E3 https://t.co/6No81maSXz pic.twitter.com/EIMQjznqsT
The tweet links through to a blog post on Bethesda.net that at least confirms fans will get a closer look at Doom Eternal. The release reads, "We want to 'Be Together' with all of you this year and with that in mind we are planning to invite more of you, our biggest fans, to join us on our biggest night of the year." It definitely sounds like things will be bigger and better for Bethesda at E3 2019.
The inclusion of #BE3 twinkling in stars is the biggest nod that there'll be more information on the highly anticipated Starfield. As it stands, little is known about the ambitious single-player game set in the depths of space, other than the fact Starfield has been in the works since 2008 . With Starfield already said to be about next-gen hardware and next-gen gaming, it's no surprise that there'll be a bit of a wait before it finally hits consoles even if this year's E3 turns out to be the home of Xbox's next-gen hardware announcements.
With Doom Eternal showing off some impressive gameplay at QuakeCon, fans already know that it will be Hell on Earth in the sequel. Elsewhere, there should be an update on The Elder Scrolls VI after it made an appearance at last year's E3 showcase. There might be a fresh look at Wolfenstein: Youngblood, and finally, there should be new on the summer update for the struggling and mega controversial Fallout 76, that's been nothing short of a disappointment for the brand, the community, and the developer.
Considering last year's E3 showcase was so big for Bethesda, it will be interesting to see how/if the publisher can top it this year with newness, while addressing recent failings. As the tweet jokes, keep refreshing Walmart Canada to look for leaks — a subtle jibe at RAGE 2's release being spoiled ahead of time. Either way, Bethesda's all-star showcase could fill that large gap left by Sony skipping E3 2019.
