Follows the critical success of Doom, Bethesda now announces the return of another classic FPS series. Quake is officially back! As the latest main entry in the series since Quake 4 in 2004, Quake: Champions is focused on multi-player arena, and is expected to be part of the e-sports community, supporting competitive tournaments and leagues. Aiming for both newcomers and veterans, Quake: Champions will feature fast-pace gameplay and amazing graphics running at "120hz with unlocked framerates." More details will be revealed on QuakeCon 2016.
No, this is not a sequel. And yes, Prey is now confirmed to be rebooted! In spite of the cancellation of the would-be Prey 2, Bethesda is now trying to resurface it as "a reimaging of the IP." More thrillingly, the renowned designer Chris Avellone is confirmed to be on this project. Though it is set to be released in 2017, no further detail is available now until QuakeCon 2016.
After a long wait since the original, Dishonored 2 is now confirmed to be released on 11/11/2016. And the in-game footage is finally revealed for the first time, demonstrating the stealth and assassination gameplay with the showcase of various abilities. The Collector's Edition is available for preorder now as well. You may see the in-game trailer as below:
The Elder Scrolls
The most-award-winner never fades. Bethesda announced that The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be remastered with enhanced graphic performance and mod-supporting for consoles as the "Speical Edition." It will be available on 10/28/2016 for PC, Xbox One and PS4. Last but not least, if you own the Legendary Edition or all DLCs on Steam, it is FREE for you to play!
Bethesda also revealed a campaign intro cinematic for The Elder Scrolls Legends, a strategy card game in the series which will be released in 2016. And it has expanded its release to Android, Mac and iPad alongside PC and iOS. As for another spin-off in the series, The Elder Scrolls Online is going to launch a major patch "One Tamriel", enabling players to explore the world freely once the tutorial is completed.
For those who dig in the apocalyptic world, 3 more DLCs are coming for Fallout 4 starting from next week. New contraptions will be introduced to the workshop in June, and you may build your own vault in July, and finally visit a new area named "Nuka-World" in August, which will also be the last expansion of Fallout 4.
Though every journey has its destination, you can still live your days in the vault on PC with the upcoming version of Fallout Shelter which was previously on mobile only. As a spin-off, Fallout Shelter is somewhat an unexpected hit. According to Bethesda, it has reached 50 million players recently. And a major patch is scheduled too. Furthermore, the VR version of Fallout 4 is confirmed to be released in 2017 on HTC Vive.
War. War never changes.
