After finishing their first ever E3 conference, Bethesda has showed a substantial amount of content.

Let’s take a look into what was shown…

DOOM

After numerous revisions and years without any drop of info, DOOM returned with an explosive reveal during Bethesda’s showcase, presenting the brutal and gory gameplay you’d expect from the series.

With a focus on speed and slaughtering all enemies that you encounter, this Next-Gen outing seems set to bring punchy weaponry and over-the-top finishing moves. In an unexpected move, players will be able to develop their own levels and objectives via the use of SnapMap, giving power to the fans and hopefully providing a huge amount of longevity beyond its initial campaign.

Catch first official trailer below for a detailed look at the mayhem that awaits your arrival. DOOM is expected to arrive in Spring 2016 for PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Dishonored 2 & Dishonored Definitive Edition

With the original ranking high in the ratings here at Start Replay the team couldn’t be happier to see a return to its stealth-driven and atmospheric world of Dishonored.

Tasking you as either previous lead protagonist Corvo Attano, or Emily Kaldwin (daughter to the Empress murdered in the first game), developer Arkane Studios promise that the choices you make within the coastal city of Karnaca, will make have impactful consequences.

Akin to Corvo, Emily obtains her own set of powers and gadgets, which will allow her to traverse environments with complete stealth or go ‘guns blazing’. It has been confirmed that, once again, players will be able to play through the entirety of the game without killing a single person. No release date has been set, but it’s a safe guess to assume its arrival at the end of 2016.

In an effort to make the wait more bearable, the original Dishonored will be re-packaged with all of its DLC and given a makeover for PS4, Xbox One and PC, landing in the midst of this fall’s already busy release schedule. Better brush up on those assassination skills.

Fallout 4 & Fallout Shelter iOS

It’s huge, it’s ambitious, it’s radical. It’s also coming soon.

After an initial pre-E3 reveal, Bethesda lifted the curtain on Fallout 4 during its press conference. A bunch of fresh and returning features were confirmed, including the ability to play as either a man or woman. Most notably, however, was the fact that customisation of the world will play a major part, allowing players to create their own areas and shelters. Beefing up your compound’s security will be important and maintaining a safe haven for passing travellers will also be vital.

Having said that, building awesome structures isn’t necessary at all, and is just one of the many options available to those exploring. It was confirmed that the story will firstly take place before the nuclear war and then naturally progress past the fallout, letting you go anywhere at anytime. An awesome Pip-Boy edition was also revealed, which includes a life-size wearable Pip-Boy replica, which is available to preorder right now.

Fallout 4 was confirmed to arrive on November 10th 2015 on PC, Xbox One and PS4. Surprisingly, those who purchase the Xbox One version will be able to use mods created on the PC. In addition to the megaton of Fallout 4 news, Bethesda has also launched an iOS game in the Fallout universe named Fallout Shelter, which tasks you as the overseer of your own Vault. You can download it now on iOS and Android.

The full gameplay premier for Fallout 4 can be seen below:

Wrapping Up…

On an end note, there were a handful of other games show that don’t necessarily bring as much gravitas opposite the above. A brand-new trailer for PC-only BattleCry was shown:

Plus Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited also received a new trailer:
