E3 The Conferences - Bethesda & Devolver Digital
Bethesda's turn now and, well, it felt kind of a disappointment after Microsoft's reveals.
The talking point here was the reveal of the Creation Club, an in-game mod database for Fallout 4 and Skyrim: Special Edition on the three main platforms, PS4, Xbox and PC. The problem is that the FAQ wording states "credits' would be used for acquiring individual mods. Is this a return to paid mods that went down so well on Steam? Hopefully more details will be made available soon. You can read the FAQ here.

As it was leaked a few hours earlier by some Reddit ads, this announcement was not as hyped as it could have been. Once again, Sebastian Castellanos will be venturing into the unknown, this time chasing after his daughter. The return to STEM can be made Friday the 13th October.

Dishonored 2: Death of the Outsider sees Daud and Billie return. Initially looking like DLC, the Steam Listing page indicates it is a standalone title similar to Wolfenstein: The Old Blood. This is releasing 15th September.

There was a lot of smaller annoncements, including an upcoming expansion for Elder Scrolls: Legends. Titled Heroes of Skyrim, this story expansion will be out June 29th.
Other reveals included Doom VFR and Fallout 4 VR, more content for Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, Skyrim: Special Edition being released on the Nintendo Switch and Quake Champions gaining B.J. Blazkowicz.

Closing the show was Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus. A bizarre, violent trip into an America ruled by Nazis the story follows the growing resistant movement. Release date is set for 27th October.

Devolver Digital also held their first "conference" and boy, was it worth it. Opening with the tag line "Tomorrow's Unethical Business Practices, Today!", this parody was easily the most entertaining show yet.
Games on display included Ruiner and Serious Sam's Bogus Detour.
