#BE3 = Big E3 Roundup (Updated)

Capture

It’s hard to believe that two weeks have passed since our first-ever E3 Showcase. With a week to recover from our big night in Hollywood and a week’s worth of E3, let’s take a moment to check out some of the highlights from E3 week. And of course, if you’ve missed any of our E3 Showcase, don’t forget to check out our E3 2015 playlist on the Bethesda YouTube Channel.

But what about the rest of the web. If missed the official Xbox briefing, you might have missed exclusive new footage from Fallout 4. Check it out in the embed below (new stuff starts after talking with Codsworth).

On the same day, Todd also had the opportunity to participate in YouTube Gaming’s E3 Show with Geoff Keighley. Watch the interview below…

Fallout 4 was at the center of attention for many at E3 — winning Best of Show awards from multiple outlets, including:

Of course, there’s plenty else to discuss at E3, and one of the best at discussing all things Bethesda is our very own Pete Hines. He’s got some must-watch and must-read interviews, starting with his interview at Polygon that starts with “Where was Wet 2?”.

What else is worth seeing from Pete? Check out interviews with Touch Arcade (focusing on Fallout Shelter), IGN (on what makes Fallout ‘Fallout’), Telegraph, and VentureBeat.

Want more E3 coverage? We dig in — game by game — after the break.

Inaugural Video Game Hall of Fame Honors DOOM

q6cjc2lrikzg1fwky4re

This past week, the World Video Game Hall of Fame announced its inaugural class of games. Congratulations to id Software on DOOM’s induction!

It’s an amazing honor to see DOOM inducted into the World Video Game Hall of Fame.  It’s a great testament to the impact DOOM has had, not only on our industry, but on us as a team. This honor reminds of us of our great heritage. And, at this year’s E3 we look forward to showing the world DOOM’s future.

This inaugural class is a special one, to be sure. Joining DOOM are Pac-Man, Pong, Super Mario Bros., and World of Warcraft.

DOOM Retro Tease

That didn’t take long. Yesterday @DOOM tweeted the idea of doing a throwback video spoofing DOOM’s teaser video. Hours later (and perhaps by pure coincidence), YouTuber UberOfFP put together this sweet little package using DOOM II.

Pretty spot on. To see the new DOOM that id Software’s working on now, don’t miss our E3 Showcase — June 14th at 7pm PT on Twitch.TV/Bethesda and YouTube.com/BethesdaSoftworks.

PsychTestBlog
Focus on this! We’ve collected and put together a nice little mini gallery of some of our favorite art pieces from the last few weeks and placed it below. Rorschach test results have concluded that there is a taste for horror in psyches this week.

In addition to the artwork made by you guys, we’ve also had some fun showing off ours. Earlier this week we revealed the gameplay trailer for “The Assignment” DLC for The Evil Within with accompanying concept art and screenshots going up on our Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook pages. We’ve provided just a glimpse at what you can expect to see in the coming weeks leading up to “The Assignment”‘s release in the gallery below.
