Dishonored 2 allowed you to step into the world of deposed Empress Emily, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider lets you play as fan-favorite killer for hire Billie Lurk as she takes on what is probably the most daring and suicidal mission of all: killing the god-like Outsider.
This cute video of kids explaining what their parents do for work kicked off the conference.
Betheda's E3 pre-show press conference may have been considerably shorter than Microsoft's but it still managed to pack in a number of new announcements, including Doom VFR and a Nintendo x Bethesda crossover.
The trailer was composed of clips of old TV programs that cut into the actual game trailer.
This is the second story expansion The Elder Scrolls: Legends has seen since its debut, and it should add about 25 or so new missions and around 30-40 new cards to its collection.
The best cameo though is Link in the Nintendo Switch version of Skyrim. This year, whilst there was nothing as incredibly exciting as a new Elder Scrolls or Fallout entry announced, we did get a great list of titles across multiple platforms to look forward to, as well new content for recent releases. These mods are created both by Bethesda developers and by content creators, particularly the biggest modders in the community.
Creation Club will be made available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC and will launch sometime this summer. Not exactly Elder Scrolls lore-friendly, but hey, we'll take it!
During the trailer, we see a Breath of the Wild Amiibo used to drop a chest into Skyrim.
Will you be taking an arrow to the knee in Skyrim on the Nintendo Switch? See new content just for Nintendo, including the Master Sword, in the trailer. It features a new playable character, Billie Lurk, and is described as "the ideal entry point for those new to the Dishonored series". The Horns of the Reach and Clockwork City DLC game packs are also set to expand the game even further in 2017. The Evil Within 2 follows 2014's survival horror game developed by Tango Gameworks.
Full game coming to Android and iPhone in July.
If you buy something from one of these links IGN may get a share of the sale.
Bethesda also threw us a few other reminders about new updates coming to The Elder Scrolls: Legends. Amazon is always a good option, thanks to nearly all $60 games going for $48 pre-release.
