Bethesda’s E3 press conference brought a lot of new games to the fore front, but one of their biggest announcements was the continued support of Fallout 4, Fallout Shelter and Skyrim.
Starting with the last year’s Fallout 4, the new content coming to the title is more technical as they’ll allow players to create even more crazy machines. Players will be able to display their epic armor on mannequins, weapons on racks and even create Rube Goldberg machines with unprecedented levels of creativity. All of this will be available in the Contraptions DLC which is set to be released next week.
Also coming to Fallout is an addition to the settlement creation tools with the new ability to design your own Vault within the game through the Vault-Tec DLC. Players will be able to design their own Vaults in much the same way that Fallout Shelter allowed them to and even lets you experiment on all of your Vault dwellers. The Vault-Tec DLC will be available July 2016.
The last of the updates for Fallout 4 comes in the form of all new story based content called Nuka-World. The theme park based content was only teased with a glimpse at some of the landscape and creepy looking Carnies, but we’ll find out more when the content is released in August.
Fallout Shelter will be getting a light update with new quests, an updated combat system and story content, but the big news is that it will be coming to PCs in July 2016.
Last and most certainly not least however, is the graphic overhaul coming to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Coming to the PS4, Xbox One and re-releasing on the PC, the Special Edition will launch on October 28 with everything gamers could want. While it will obviously be packaged with all of the accompanying DLC, the special edition will be treated to enhanced lighting and atmospheric effects, in addition to dynamic depth of field.
Most importantly will be the addition of mods on every console, which will allow casual players to alter the game and rate how well they work. Skyrim was given special care for the update and has been individually optimized for each systems that it is available on. As an added treat for PC gamers who have the entire Skyrim collection and even a few of the Bethesda mods is that they will receive the special remaster for free when it releases.
Bethesda’s E3 press conference was in its own way a blast from the past, and players will be able to experience all of the updates coming to Fallout 4, Fallout Shelter and Skyrim over the next few months.
