Last year saw the very first E3 press conference from Bethesda. The event, specifically named the Bethesda E3 Showcase, was a great success, showing off a lot of upcoming games from the publisher. The crowning jewel of the show was the unveiling of Fallout 4, giving fans a look at the game that they’d speculated about and anticipated for many years. Apparently Bethesda feels they have enough to follow up that epic show, announcing today the Bethesda E3 Showcase 2016.
The event will take place on June 12th, 2016 at 7pm Pacific Time in Los Angelese, CA. No word on the location, with the possibility of downsizing from last year’s massive theater if the company doesn’t have as big of a game to show off. However, the question is, just what will they show off?
Speculation will quickly jump to The Elder Scrolls VI, though the chances of this are extremely small. Perhaps a very small teaser for the game could be shown, with a release date very loosely set in the distant future. However, this doesn’t seem to be how Bethesda likes to do things, holding back the announcement of Fallout 4 until the very year in which it eventually released.
Instead I would expect to see some of the smaller Bethesda games make an appearance, including Dishonored 2. Doom played a big part in last year’s E3 Showcase, though it will have released by the time this show happens. The developer does have one ace up its sleeve though, which could definitely make an appearance here.
Fallout 4 is promised to have a slate of DLC releases, both standalone and as part of the Season Pass. Those DLC expansions will almost certainly show up at the Bethesda E3 Showcase 2016, as the team was said to only start working on them after releasing the base game. With seven months between the game’s release and this show, they could have a lot to reveal to players about the upcoming DLC.
