The final two announcements of the conference were titles that have always been expected: The Evil Within 2 and Wolfenstein II: Colossus. Lurk’s mentor Doud also features in the game and plays a role similar to his appearance in previous Dishonored DLC. Remember previous year when Nintendo made a big deal of Skyrim coming to their brand new console the Switch, which was consequently followed by Bethesda nonchalantly shrugging when asked if it was really happening? It appears to be a complete version of Fallout 4 just with the addition of virtual reality. See the trailer below to see how.
At Bethesda’s E3 presentation, Doom VFR was announced for PSVR and HTC Vive. This could create a new gameplay experience for the now two year old game. Plus, just about every Fallout fan wants to feel even more immersed in the worlds that Bethesda craft.
Meanwhile, Microsoft unveiled some of their highly anticipated games including “Assassin’s Creed Origins” which will be about an Egyptian magus. Still trying to unseat Hearthstone, The Elder Scrolls: Legends card spin-off is launching a new expansion, one that centers on the game universe’s current most profitable chapter: Skyrim. Not only is one of the biggest RPGs coming to the Switch, you get to feel like a badass using the Joy-Cons as a sword and shield or a bow and arrow a la Zelda: The Twilight Princess on Wii in this special version. In 2016, Bethesda spent a good while going over Dishonored 2 after its trailer, sharing details and going more in-depth on Arkane’s upcoming action title. It features a new playable character, Billie Lurk, and is described as “the flawless entry point for those new to the Dishonored series”. Additionally, a couple of attractions within the park were closed out suggesting that these games are still in the works by the time the invites were teased. It is set for launch on October 13. The Evil Within 2 follows 2014’s survival horror game developed by Tango Gameworks. And it’s called Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus.
If you buy something from one of these links IGN may get a share of the sale. It was always coming back, we’ll see if the testing and content curation is too much of a burden and what kind of deal they offer community creators. In the meantime, there’s a trailer to get an idea for what it looks like to play something as insane as “Doom” in virtual reality. Amazon is always a good option, thanks to nearly all $60 games going for $48 pre-release. You can pre-order the game, and also grab a PlayStation VR Bundle if needed. Card games are the prime example for such types of games, and they’re apparently very profitable as well.
