Bethesda’s big online event kicks off this weekend
It’s been a strange year, for sure, but some companies have been slightly more prepared than others. Bethesda is used to livestreaming their giant annual QuakeCon event, even though it’s usually an in-person celebration, but at least they know the expectations from fans.
This year could be a little different, as the company only has Deathloop as a timed console launch exclusive for the PS5 announced for this year, and Ghostwire Tokyo as an exclusive for 2021. What about Xbox? What about Switch (Doom Eternal, where are ya)?
Bethesda is known for a pretty raucous yearly E3 show with many reveals, so maybe we’ll find out more as QuakeCon kicks off this Friday. Here are some highlights, including an hour-long kick-off, and the full slate of streams and sessions happening from the 7th-9th on Bethesda’s Twitch channel:
