I’m not sure if November 10th will go down as a landmark day in gaming history but to investors in Bethesda and Activision Blizzard, it certainly will. Both companies had their big holiday releases last Tuesday with Fallout 4 and StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void, respectively. Both companies are reporting millions of units sold within hours of their games launching.
We’ll start with the first press conference of the week which means that we start with Bethesda. Their rookie effort at E3 focused heavily on their two biggest upcoming releases. Multiple gameplay and features videos of Fallout 4 and Doom made up the majority of the conference. There were a few reveals too including a new Dishonored and spin-offs of Fallout and The Elder Scrolls.
While E3 officially starts on Tuesday and the real news at E3 happens with the Big Four pressers on Monday, the 2015 edition of the Electronic Entertainment Expo will kick off on Sunday when Bethesda has their first E3 press conference.
As part of our week-long E3 coverage on et geekera, we start with a preview of the first of the week’s seven major press conferences and tell you what to expect from Bethesda and what rumours suggest they have up their sleeve.
