Bethesda’s E3 press conferences have been interesting to say the least, ranging from the incredible to the downright bizarre. Does anyone remember Andrew WK?
Now that Bethesda has joined forces with Microsoft and Xbox, we might see plenty of new exclusives announced for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Game Pass, fans are curious to see if more projects will be revealed than usual in this year’s show.
A lot of the Bethesda faithful are also hoping to see more from Starfield, the studio’s first original IP in years, along with Elder Scrolls 6, though that one seems like a long shot.
For now though, here's everything you need to know ahead of time.
What time is the Bethesda E3 2021 event showcase?
Bethesda's E3 2021 event showcase is tied in with Xbox's event, which takes place on June 13.
That's this coming Saturday. The event in question starts at these times, depending on your timezone:
- 10am PT
- 1pm ET
- 6pm BST
How to watch the Bethesda event showcase at E3 2021 online
With E3 going fully digital for 2021, everyone will be in the same boat and watching the many E3 conferences from home. You want to grab your snacks and drinks ahead of time, but you don't need to travel to LA like before.
Instead you need to just load up the official Xbox YouTube channel and tune in to the presentation.
As noted above, the event is set to start at 6pm BST, but we would suggest tuning in early: a) to enjoy the nice visuals and pre-show music, we love that. B) You want to make sure the streams working nice and early so you don't miss a thing. We're betting the announcments will come thick and fast.
Bethesda E3 2021 Predictions
For now, here are a few throwaway Bethesda predictions of everything we’re
expecting hoping to see from at the E3 press conference.
The first original IP from Bethesda since god knows when, Starfield has been hyped up by the fanbase due to the developers behind the game rather than everything else, since, let’s be real here, everything we know is based on a CG trailer.
Fans do want to see more of Starfield, now that it will likely be an Xbox Series X exclusive, and this year’s E3 could finally show us some gameplay.
The Elder Scrolls 6
Announced right after Starfield was The Elder Scrolls 6, which also got a CGI trailer and nothing else, with many fans wondering when in the hell we’ll get some details on this.
It feels like they only announced The Elder Scrolls 6 to get a pop from the audience in attendance and nothing else, so something new would be great. Hopefully, Bethesda does reveal some gameplay for The Elder Scrolls 6 in this year’s E3 but we doubt it.
Ever since Fallout 76 made fans lose faith in Bethesda, not helped by the release of The Outer Worlds which got a lot of rave reviews, we’ve all been waiting for a new game in the series to come out.
Bethesda has yet to reveal any new details about a brand-new Fallout installment and it seems like the company is sticking with Fallout 76 for better or worse but if E3 2021 gives us a new game, fans would be happy.
