With E3 around the corner, excitement and anticipation about new video game announcements are evident. This year Xbox & Bethesda will share the stage at E3 2021; with high expectations from the showcase, don’t forget to grab some coke and popcorn because this event will feature some incredible video games.
Since E3 2020 couldn’t happen, the expo will return on June 12th with a massive online presence. Moving on, let’s look at what Xbox & Bethesda will have in store for E3 2021.
Xbox & Bethesda games showcase date and time
Xbox & Bethesda games showcase goes live at 10 am on Sunday, June 13th. The joint event would probably be an hour and a half long or more and will feature new reveals and announcements alongside some gameplay reveals.
Expected games at Xbox & Bethesda games Showcase E3 2021
Starfield is Bethesda’s upcoming RPG, which is set in space. It has been almost 3 years since the developer announced this ambitious project at E3 2018. However, not much is known about the game, except that it will be a massive first-person Sci-fi RPG.
Starfield is expected to hit the store somewhere in 2022. Hopefully, we could catch a glimpse of this anticipated game by Bethesda at this year’s E3.
Halo Infinite is the upcoming addition to the legendary Halo video game series by 343 Industries. Although Halo has already released an 8-minute gameplay video of Halo Infinite, which tells us a bit about how the game looks, and so far, it’s looking great.
However, we’re expecting Xbox & Bethesda games showcase to reveal some info about the multiplayer gameplay. Moreover, we believe we’ll get to see some more of the Halo Infinite campaign at E3 2021.
Deathloop is an upcoming action-adventure game set to release on September 14th, 2021. With the gameplay of Deathloop already released, we know that players will take on the role of an assassin in this game, who is stuck in a time loop.
Build on the same engine as Dishonored; players might think it is the same game with bigger guns. Interestingly, no, Deathloop features some supernatural abilities and, well, yes, lots of big guns, but this first-person shooter game is not all about shooting.
Another action-adventure game, Ghostwire: Tokyo, can make Xbox & Bethesda games showcase’s roster at E3 2021. Ghostwire: Tokyo is set to release somewhere in 2021; we believe it’s about time we saw a dedicated gameplay reveal.
Ghostwire: Tokyo will take players in the streets of Tokyo to fight off ghosts and spirits from a first-person perspective. Moreover, players will have a handful of psychic and magical abilities at their disposal. While the game looks promising, it has received substantial criticism. However, we’d love to see Ghostwire: Tokyo at E3 2021.
The Elder Scrolls 6
The Elder Scrolls 6 is probably the most anticipated game from Bethesda at E3 2021. Another addition to one of the biggest RPG franchises was announced long back, with an announcement trailer at E3 2018.
However, no concrete information about this game has been revealed so far, and The Elder Scrolls 6 would probably come out after Starfield. Meanwhile, fans of the franchise eagerly await some announcement or a closer look at the game at Xbox & Bethesda games showcase at E3 2021.
Scorn is an upcoming first-person shooter horror game that resembles a fan-favorite game, DOOM. The gameplay trailer shows a world of metal, flesh, and bones; it resembles a grotesque world where the players control a skinless humanoid.
The weapons shown in the gameplay trailer seem to be made of skull and bones, indicating that the developers have gone too long to make this game seem morbid. Moreover, Scorn is set to release sometime in 2021, and we’re hoping to see more information on this game at the coming Xbox & Bethesda games showcase at E3.
Few more games to look forward to at E3 2021
A single-person third-person game by Xbox Game Studios, Psychonauts 2 will feature similar gameplay to its predecessor, Psychonauts. Psychonauts 2 was announced at The Game Awards 2015 and has since been in development, with a release date planned for 2021.
However, we don’t know when Psychonauts will hit the stores, but we’re hoping for a release date at this year’s E3.
The long-awaited sequel to the much-loved Stalker is soon to be released. Stalker 2 has been in development since the last decade; with its announcement in 2010, fans have been waiting patiently.
However, we’re not sure about this one, it could be, or it couldn’t be shown at this year’s E3, leaving it all to mere guesses.
Crossfire X is the third addition in the Crossfire series, mainly popular in the Asian region. This game will be an Xbox exclusive upon launch and draws heavy influences from games like CS:GO and COD.
Furthermore, alongside multiplayer modes, Crossfire X will also come with a single-player campaign. An open beta was available in June 2020 for Xbox insiders, but the release was delayed to 2021. We’re hopeful that we might see a release date for Crossfire X during Xbox & Bethesda game showcase at E3 2021.
Warhammer 40000: Darktide
Another upcoming first-person shooter game, Warhammer 40000: Darktide, will be released sometime in 2021 for PC and Xbox exclusively, because why not? However, little details have been shared about the ambitious game from Fatshark; let’s see if Warhammer 40000: Darktide makes it to E3 2021.
Avowed is a new fantasy RPG video game from the studio behind Fallout and The Outer Worlds. The game is set in the land of Eora, the same world as Pillars of Eternity. Avowed is still in development, and little to no details are known about the game. The game is anticipated to feature in Xbox & Bethesda games showcase at E3 2021 with more information.
The Outer Worlds 2
While there is no official statement regarding the development of The Outer Worlds 2, a recent leak suggests that Obsidian Entertainment could unveil the sequel to 2019’s The Outer worlds at E3 2021.
Forza Horizon 5
Another game from one of the best racing game franchises, Forza Horizon 5, could debut during Xbox & Bethesda games showcase at E3 2021. With hints from reliable leakers from the video game industry, likely, the game is still in early development.
Fable 4 is still in development, and the game was first announced at Microsoft’s Xbox games showcase in 2020. However, little to no details are available about the upcoming action RPG. We’re putting our money on seeing some solid information about Fable 4 during Xbox & Bethesda games showcase at this year’s E3.
