E3 2017 - Bethesda Press Conference

Bethesda invited us to take a trip to Bethesdaland this E3. Here’s what we discovered.

After today’s two hour Xbox briefing, the 30 minute trip to Bethesdaland was an absolute pleasure. It was short, to the point, and impressive. The lineup was a delight from start to finish, beginning with the casual confirmation that the full Fallout 4 experience is coming to VR, and ending with the rollicking reveal of Wolfenstein II.

There were also previews of Skyrim on Nintendo Switch, The Evil Within 2, and Quake Champions. Here’s the full list of announcements.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
