Bethesda has a bit of a problem coming into E3 2016: last year's was rather epic, thanks to the likes of Fallout 4 and Doom.

How will they top it? Well, there's a new Quake for starters...

Quake Champions

Quake is back! The game that stole your youth is getting a fresh new look, with a huge roster of new characters with their own unique abilities to master. Bethesda is hoping to attract a bunch of professional esports players with the title, so expect it to be really, really quick.

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim Special Edition

We never thought we'd get excited about the sentence 'New snow shaders', but here we are. Skyrim has been giving the full beans of the new console generation, adding a heap of visual grunt to one of the finest role playing games ever made. You'll also be able to play mods on your console, which is super. 

Prey

Prey is back! There's a theme setting in here... Set aboard a space station over run by a mysterious alien race, you've got to use a bunch of super cool weapons and 'mind bending' abilities to survive. Good luck.

Bethesda VR

Doom and Fallout 4 in VR? Sounds like a recipe for motion sickness, but Bethesda is giving it a go, partnering with the HTC Vive. 

Dishonored 2

One of our favourite games of recent years, the Dishonored sequel looks to have polished the winning formula of the first title - but set in a bigger, more detailed world than before. There's more 'Chaos' this time around: the final sequences of the game will be hugely affected depending on whether you let targets you meet throughout the game live or die. To help you make up your mind, the all-seeing Heart returns, giving you additional insights into just how rotten the new world of Dishonored is.
