The new Doom was also shown off, and while it is great to see the return of one of the original all time great FPS titles, this reboot doesn't seem to have quite the energy that Wolfenstein: The New Order had. The action looks intense, the enemies disgusting, and the insanity at max, so I'm probably just jaded with the genre, but there is time yet, considering they are shooting for a Spring/Summer 2016 release.
Battlecry seems like an interesting take on the Team Fortress formula, but with as crowded as MOBAs are these days, this game will have to have great classes, balance, maps, and mechanics to stand out. Luckily we should be getting a date for the beta, and I'll do my best to bring some impressions from that if I am able to participate.
Elder Scrolls: Legends could very well be one of the most unexpected announcements, and unfortunately also with the fewest details. Apparently a strategy card game, one that I assume might be somewhat Hearthstone flavored, it will be tying the legends of Tamriel together, which if done correctly could be a major drawing point. The Elder Scrolls has fantastic lore and history, and if this is a true Free-to-Play way to experience the whole thing, that could very well change the way online card games are done. Again, concerns remain over things like balance and what kind of Free-to-Play this will be, but we will hopefully be getting more details soon.
The star of the show, of course, was Fallout 4, and with extended looks at various gameplay mechanics, including new crafting and building options, character design, and multiple tie-ins, including an amazing collectors edition that comes with your very own Pip-Boy, with pre-order prices coming in at around $120. Now that we have a bit more context, I feel like this will be a fun and exciting installment to the much loved franchise, though a part of me is slightly concerned from a story perspective, as historically the Obsidian/Black Isle developed Fallout titles have had noticeably better stories, though time will tell one way or another, the action looks excellent, and post apocalyptic Boston looks like a great place to explore and build.
That's all I have for impressions as far as Bethesda's E3 press conference is concerened, and make sure to check back, as I'll be doing my best to update with any other major news and announcements coming this week from E3, and I will be attending the Playstation E3 Experience at my local theater tomorrow, so make sure to follow me on twitter @FOEXIII and check the website regularly too, as I may go for a live-blog style if I'm able.
