Bethesda has come up with another creative way to peak the interest of the gaming public for their E3 presentation. As you’d expect, they sent out press invitations to check out the Bethesda E3 2017 lineup. However, they did so via a picture of an, unfortunately fictional, Bethesdaland. In the picture, they show all of their classic games as sections of the amusement park, and two sections are “under construction”.
It seems that it’s time to kick the E3 2017 hype train into gear. One participant that has really managed to get the buzz going is Bethesda, with their interesting announcement. They sent out a picture of Bethesdaland, a theme park that I’m sure many of us would like to visit and, sadly, doesn’t exist. The theme park is divided into several sections, all of which are devoted to some popular Bethesda property. There’s Doom, Fallout, Dishonored, Prey, Elder Scrolls, and Quake.
Interestingly, two sections are under construction, which probably means that we’ll get to see two new games announced by Bethesda at E3 2017. Which two games these might be is anybody’s guess, and boy, oh boy, have people been guessing. Speculations are flying left and right, but GamesRadar pointed out two plausible candidates.
The first one is a new Wolfenstein game, titled Wolfenstein: The New Colossus. Voice actor Brian Bloom teased the possibility of that game in an interview with Two Left Sticks back in October 2016. He talked about how Bethesda hinted at the new Wolfenstein, even saying that they “may be working on it as we speak”.
The other contender might be The Evil Within 2. A while ago, user Dusk Golem posted a job listing on NeoGAF, which details an opening for translating and bug reporting on Psycho Break 2. The Japanese name for The Evil Within is Psycho Break. In other words, this might be another game that Bethesda might introduce at this year’s E3.
Which game would you like to see as a part of Bethesda’s E3 2017 roster? Personally, now that I look at it, I’d love to play Bethesdaland.
