To make up for its less than stellar launch, Fallout 76 will be receiving a free update. Dubbed “Wastelanders,” the new DLC will add computer-controlled human NPC characters which will feature full dialogue trees with new quests.

Additionally, Bethesda delivered a new dragon questline update to the mobile version following the panel.

Finally, although Bethesda didn’t offer any real news it gave those in the audience and those tuning in an update that it is hard at work on the new RPG announced last year at E3.
Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot & Wolfenstein: Youngblood
Building on the universe of Wolfenstein, Bethesda will be introducing two new additions to the series in July. Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot is a VR game that transports players into the role of a hacker in the French Resistance forces. While Wolfenstein: Youngblood coming July 26 is a co-op shooter which stars B.J. Blazkowicz’s twin daughters.
Opting for the playful approach, RAGE 2 received a sitcom-themed trailer for its upcoming “Rise of the Ghosts” expansion. The action-packed preview reveals the DLC will feature everything from a new pilotable mech, vehicles, sandworm, cheats, game modes and even a new faction.
Developed by The Evil Within creators Tango Gameworks, Ghostwire: Tokyo is based around strange disappearances in Tokyo. Playing as the main character, you must uncover what is going on. Facing up with the occult, your mysterious spectral abilities will take you on an adventure filled with a mix of conspiracy theories and urban legends.
The Dishonored creators have put together a new mind-bending story chronicling the eternal struggle between two assassins on the lawless island of Blackreef. Accented by detail-rich environments and immersive gameplay, the game features a unique death cycle concept that is central to the story.
Looking to reimagine id Software’s iconic Commander Keen, Bethesda is putting together a free-to-play mobile game that serves as a modern take on the side-scroller. Bringing back Billy and Billie, the game will function more like an item-based action puzzle game meets 2D side-scroller. A soft launch of the game on iOS and Android is expected this Summer.
Bethesda also announced plans to introduce its bid for game streaming. Currently dubbed “Orion,” the software technology is being developed by id Software and is set to be a game engine level streaming service that focuses on lower latency. A big part of Orion is the ability to stream at the highest settings in sub-optimal bandwidth situations. Users can test the service when they join the Doom Slayer’s Club.
