Bethesda E3 Plans Include Fallout 4 Panel Featuring Todd Howard, Doom Roundtable And More


Sunday, June 14th may very well represent the pinnacle of Bethesda’s E3 presence, when the esteemed publisher will host its very own press conference for the first time at 7pm PT/ 10pm ET. It’s an event that will likely herald a bevy of news relating to Doom, the all-but-confirmed Dishonoured 2 and recently-revealed sequel Fallout 4.

However, the company also has ample content lined up for the days in which E3 is open to the public. Revealed today, Bethesda has outlined a myriad of events that will usher in several of its heavy-hitters into the spotlight, including a Fallout 4 panel with Game Director Todd Howard on Tuesday, June 16 along with a Doom roundtable the following day with a collection of the reboot’s creative team.

Now that Fallout 4 is out in the open and is stoking passionate fan debate about the sequel’s Massachusetts setting, we can readily expect Bethesda to delegate plenty of stage time to gameplay footage and its other in-development titles. For a play-by-play breakdown of the company’s schedule, check out the table below.
