Long-time Rokkan client and gaming powerhouse, Bethesda, unveiled some exciting news at E3 this year:
On Mars, the Union Aerospace Corporation (UAC), a multi-planetary conglomerate and military contractor, has been performing secret experiments on inter-dimensional travel. Recently, the teleportation gates have shown signs of anomalies and instability, but the research continues nonetheless. Eventually, creatures from Hell swarm out of the teleportation gates, and the bases are quickly overrun by demons; all personnel are killed or turned into zombies. You are the only Marine standing in their way.
DOOM, the fourth installment in the cult sci-fi/horror first-person shooter series is an origin story, with a Union Aerospace Corporation facility yet again being invaded by the forces of Hell. At E3, Bethesda launched Doom.com (created by Rokkan), featuring the official gameplay trailer, and exclusive pre-ordering for the Spring 2016 release.
There’s officially going to be a Dishonored 2 (!!!), and the first trailer was revealed, which was written and helmed by Rokkan, and co-created with Blur. Dishonored 2 takes your protagonist—choose between Corvo Attano and (a now grown up orphaned princess) Emily Kaldwin—to the coastal city of Karnaca, where the choices you make will have significant impact on the world. Both assassins have their own unique set of powers, weapons, and tools to provide creative and exciting new ways to eliminate targets. Dishonored 2 will be available in Spring 2016, and after the rabid success of the first title, we really can’t wait.
Of course Bethesda’s showcase was all about the games, but they also shared for the first time the new home for all things Bethesda on the web: Bethesda.net!
Stay tuned in the coming months for more details as Rokkan works on the site, which will be the home of featured content you’ve come to expect here on Bethesda Blog, revamped community forums, and powerful tools for sharing game stats, mods and content.
