Bethesda at E3: Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls

Bethesda's E3 event announced a bunch of new stuff for some of the titles we cover here at GameBanshee. In order to avoid flooding the front page, I thought it would be best to bundle all The Elder Scrolls and Fallout 4 announcements into a single article.

First of all, the VR version of Fallout 4 has received a new trailer, set to Mr. Sandman's chirpy tune. And while trying to get an idea of how a game will look and play in VR by watching a trailer on a regular old monitor is far from ideal, it's all we've got, apart from a tentative release date somewhere in October. Check it out:

Moving onto The Elder Scrolls, Skyrim is getting a new release on the Nintendo Switch. Naturally, there's a trailer that boasts the ability to play Skyrim as a famous Hyrule warrior, whose name is totally not Zelda. Also, there are motion controls and amiibos. The release is set for Fall, 2017. Here's the trailer:

Now, The Elder Scrolls Online has just received its new chunk of content in the Morrowind expansion, but already, we have an announcement of two new pieces of DLC: Horns of the Reach, and Clockwork City. Read a bit about them below, but for now, here's also a new TESO trailer that does the whole 'people react to blank' thing, while somehow remaining quite amusing:

A few paragraphs on the new DLC:

Your adventures in the recently released Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind might have just begun, but that’s not stopping the team at ZeniMax Online Studios from bringing you even more great content. During the Bethesda E3 2017 Showcase, the Horns of the Reach DLC and the Clockwork City DLC were both teased, giving players just a quick glimpse into the future of ESO. Horns of the Reach will be coming in August and Clockwork City will follow later this year.

Horns of the Reach

Horns of the Reach will introduce two new dungeons (Bloodroot Forge and Falkreath Hold), and is packed full of excitement to keep your adventure rolling. This DLC pack will also include new items, monster masks and achievements. You’ll be able to grab Horns of the Reach via the in-game Crown Store.

When Horns of the Reach launches, the base game will also get a major (free!) update. This update will include a new Battlegrounds map (Arcane University) and a new Battlegrounds ruleset (Chaos Ball), in addition to new homes, furnishings, cosmetics, Crown Crates and holiday events. This update will be available to all ESO players (though only Morrowind owners will have access to the Battlegrounds content), even if they don’t pick up Horns of the Reach.

Clockwork City

Explore even more of Sotha Sil’s Clockwork City in this major new DLC game pack coming to ESO. Daedric forces are at work once again – and your help is needed to prevent disaster. With more than 10 hours of fresh content, Clockwork City will keep you busy later this year – and will have a few surprises in store. Clockwork City is a standard DLC game pack and does not require the user to have purchased Morrowind. Keep an eye on for more details on Clockwork City in the coming months.

And, of course, how could we forget about Bethesda's card game, The Elder Scrolls: Legends. After all, it's not like every major game has some collectible card game tie-in these days, right? But if The Elder Scrolls: Legends is your card game of choice, you'll be delighted to know that on June 29, 2017, it's getting a new Heroes of Skyrim expansion that will add over 150 new cards. Here's the trailer:

Finally, an announcement that may sour things for some people. Wearing a cheap paper mask that reads, “Totally Not Paid Mods,” paid mods make a comeback. This time around, they're called the Creation Club for Fallout 4 & Skyrim Special Edition, and together with a price tag, they offer full curation, compatibility, and ease of use across the platforms, as well as some Bethesda-made content. The Creation Club is set to release later this summer. Check out the announcement trailer:
