E3 2018: Bethesda's press conference gave us Fallout 76 release date, Elder Scrolls 6 and more

11 Jun 18

Bethesda presented its biggest E3 press conference to date as the publisher announced a lot of big blockbuster new games coming out in the near future. 

The biggest announcements came at the end of Bethesda's E3 2018 press conference as Todd Howard announced that it is currently working on Starfield. Howard also confirmed that it is also working on The Elder Scrolls VI which will also be out in the future. 

No other details were revealed about Starfield or The Elder Scrolls VI, but at least Bethesda announced their existence. You can watch a teaser trailer for both games posted down below. 

Another huge announcement is that we now know the release date for Fallout 76. The game will be an online experience so you will see real life human players for the first time in a Fallout video game. Some players can be friendly, while other ones can be your enemies. 

Fallout 76 will be released on November 14th, 2018 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. A special Power Armour Edition has also been announced and it includes a glow-in-the-dark map, Power Armour helmet and lots of other cool stuff. 

2019 will be a great year for Bethesda because two new games should be out by then. Coming in Spring 2019 is Rage 2 which is kind of like Betheda's own take on Mad Max. It features a huge open world environment and many vehicles for you to drive. 

Another cool game announced was Doom Eternal which is a sequel to the 2016 video game that was just called Doom. It will feature a lot more enemies as Hell has invaded Earth. You can check out trailers for both Rage 2 and Doom Eternal posted down below.
