1. A Starfield Trailer closes Bethesda’s conference
Dylan: I’m pretty sure last year when they announced this, along with the Elder Scrolls thing, and we’re like “you’re not going to see these for years” you were very angry.
Ciaran: I was very angry
Dylan: “Why did you show them? Why bother showing these trailers for nothing?” Come back a year later and you’re like, they are going to end on a trailer.
Ciaran: I think they kind of have to.
Ashley: They need to let people know they’re still working on it
Ciaran: No, I don’t think what they’ve got on their books of stuff coming is enough for them to have an ending to pop off with at the end of their conference. Bethesda likes some pizzazz.
2. A new Dishonored game will be announced
Ashley: Seems possible
Ciaran: It was 2016 when Dishonored 2 was released
Ashley: They haven’t been selling very well but thats the only thing that could be a drawback
Ciaran: When has Bethesda cared about selling well?
Dylan: Bethesda one year: “single players are the best thing ever. Fuck multiplayer”. Next year: “Fallout 76 is a multiplayer experience…”
Ciaran: That’s true, but I think Dishonored will be back.
3. There will be a gameplay trailer for Wolfenstein: Youngblood
Ciaran: Elder Scrolls Blades announced for Q32019
Ashley: You want to lock that in?
Ashley: So you’re locking in the game that’s already out.
Ciaran: Is it already out?
Dylan: I mean it’s in beta
Ciaran: It’s in beta you fuck, it’s not actually out. They’ll have a release date
Ashley: People can play it
Ciaran: Actually I’ll change then. You’ve swayed me. I change it to we will get a gameplay trailer and a release date for the Wolfenstein game.
Dylan: It has a release date. July 26th.
Ciaran: Fuck. We’ll get a decent gameplay trailer for that game then. Fuck it.
Ashley: Just go as safe as possible.
Ciaran: It’s like I swam out to shore and Ashley is on the pier being like “Are you sure you want to go out there?”.
1. There will be a live music performance from Doom during the conference
Ciaran: Fuck. No.
Dylan: Live performances at Bethesda is becoming a thing and the other easy prediction would just be to say there is going to be 20 minutes of gameplay for Doom, but I feel that’s too easy, at least for myself.
Ciaran: That’s too easy. So the musical performance isn’t an easy guess?
Dylan: Well, I feel like the percentage rate would be up there but it’s not 100% locked in. I would be really happy if they do play Doom music because i fucking loved the Doom soundtrack.
2. Arkane Studio’s new game is revealed to be a new IP
Dylan: I don’t reckon it’s Dishonored 3, I reckon they are going to have a brand new IP instead.
Ashley: Do you think it’ll be something similar to Dishonored?
Dylan: I reckon it’ll have stealth elements or a first person type thing possibly. Although they could just come out be like “it’s completely fucking different, were a studio, we don’t need to stick to the same sort of thing.” Who knows? We’ll find out.
3. Elder Scrolls Legends gets an update announced
Dylan: That is a very boring prediction but I’m hoping to get easy points here.
Ashley: New Cards!
1. Elder Scrolls VI title is revealed
Ashley: So just like last year, it will be almost identical where the Elder Scrolls VI comes up and the name of the region will come up underneath.
Dylan: It’s the exact same teaser trailer too.
Ciaran: I think hold on to that until they fully announce the game.
Ashley: Nup. They are just going to drip feed the information for the next twenty years while they work on it.
Ciaran: For Elder Scrolls nerds the name means a lot, the name means where you’re going
Ashley: Yeah. That’s why it’s a great thing for them to drop this year.
2. Future plans for Fallout 76 are announced
Ashley: So another few months of content that they’ve got planned out and that sort of thing like that wild appalachia content drop they did earlier in the year. And they are going to say they have however many players they have playing Fallout 76. Everything’s going great!
Dylan: I had update down as well for this because as much as people want to say that game’s dead and no one likes it, I find it hard to believe that they’re going to announce it and bring it out one year and give up on it that fast. I reckon they would double down on it and. to be fair, they have proven with things in the past like Elder Scrolls Online which came out and was a hot steaming pile of shit. They managed to turn that around into a now highly successful MMO so as much as it seems like Fallout 76 is kinda dead in the water at this stage, I’m like maybe. We’ll see, I reckon they would turn around and double down on that one so I reckon that one’s a shoe in.
3. A new mobile game is announced: A Fallout card game
Dylan: A new mobile game? Fallout 77 shelter.
Ashley: I think it would be cool if it was a Fallout card game
Dylan: A Fallout Shelter card game?
Ashley: Not Shelter, but Fallout
Dylan: Why would they do another card game when they have so much focus on Legends?
Ciaran: Yeah, why would they do another card game.
Ashley: Because they want to cater to the Fallout audience.
Ciaran: It’s locked in he said it. Fallout card game it’s coming. That is his prediction. Lock it in. Secure it down. Fucking drill that in. It is a lock everybody, you heard it.
