Elder Scrolls Food Truck fast travels to E3 on Wednesday, June 12th

Not everyone can get into E3, but if you’re downtown and around the LA Convention Center on Wednesday, June 12th, you’ll have chance to visit our ESO Food Truck. Fans can cool off with Sugared Rootwine or Wintersbreath Treat ice cream mocktails, or feast upon the always-popular Pressed Eidarmelt — a pressed grilled cheese accompanied by dipping sauces created by finest taste alchemists of Tamriel.

Interested? Place a quest marker near the LACC’s West Hall Entrance (near the corner of Gilbert Lindsay & 12th), and stop by between 11 AM- 6:00 PM. The food is first come, first served — the earlier the better!

Stay tuned for plenty more E3 news, as we cover this year’s lineup: The Elder Scrolls Online, The Evil Within, and Wolfenstein: The New Order.

Wolfenstein: The New Order – E3 Trailer

Taking place in 1960, Wolfenstein: The New Order depicts an alternate timeline – one in which the Nazis won World War II and took over the world… and only B.J. Blazkowicz can stand up to them. Learn more in our new E3 trailer featuring new gameplay footage.
