The conference Bethesda it lasted approximately 1h21m and started with a video of the company’s own employees talking about the importance of gamers and how grateful they are for the support and feedback from the community. Obviously a way to apologize for the recent slips and probably for the problems with Fallout 76. Pete Hines, responsible for Bethesda’s marketing and communication, as soon as he entered the stage, he continued with the same speech. Emphasizing the importance of the community and its feedback.
Then we had Todd Howard, Bethesda’s executive producer making fun of the company’s slide during the past year, justifying that the problems with Fallout 76 were due to the lack of experience and that the game received a lot of criticism and that since then the team has been working hard to fix bugs and flaws. Todd also focused his speech on the importance of the community and how much they care about it.
The conference as a whole was very lukewarm, where the highlight was Doom Eternal and the teaser for GhostWire Tokyo.
The game will finally receive those NPCs that everyone questioned the whereabouts of the update Wastelanders, which will arrive free at the end of 2019 and aims to change the gaming experience. The premise is that it has been almost twelve months since the opening of Vault 76, other humans are returning to retake the Appalachians. Settler factions and looters bring more life and new missions. The attempt Bethesda to redeem himself with the public and put into play what should have been present since day one. In addition to the NPCs, we will have new missions where our choices will have consequences, factions, new weapons, armor and more.
Another novelty is that Fallout 76 wins a Battle Royale mode to call your own. Nuclear Winter will put 52 players to fight among themselves and thus define who will be the supervisor of Vault 51. The genre that became popular in recent years was also an addition that many did not expect, since most players have been demanding more game corrections for start of conversation.
The new game from Tango Gameworks was presented by the executive producer Shinji Mikami and the creative director Ikumi Nakamura, who gave a show of sympathy to the party and won many quotes on twitter. GhostWire: Tokyo mixes action and adventure with that suspense and hints of the supernatural that are familiar to us, since Tango is responsible for the franchise The Evil Within. But according to the presentation and the teaser that was shown, GhostWire: Tokyo distances itself from the horror and survival games for which Tango is known, focusing more on Japanese mythological elements, in a Tokyo that is beginning to be plagued by disappearances of people with no apparent explanation and it is up to you to discover the reason, facing paranormal anomalies and unknown forces and thus rid the once agitated city of this supernatural evil.
The developer Arkane Lyon, creator of Dishonored presented its new first-person action game titled DEATHLOOP. According Dinga Bakaba and Sébastien Mitton, both from Arkane Lyon, the game is something innovative and stylish, with meticulously designed areas that give players the freedom to approach each situation the way they want.
