June means E3 – and this year is no different. Much like last year, it was Bethesda – alongside EA – who kicked off the biggest gaming event of the year, which means that we will, once again, collect our own personal highlights from both shows, be they brand new reveals or returning titles.

Dishonored 2

Dishonored 2 once again made an appearance at Bethesda’s conference – the Arkane-developed, Thief-inspired action/stealth game, however, showed more than a CG teaser this time in the form of a full-blown gameplay trailer. We saw the return of the two playable protagonists: Corvo, now voiced by Stephen Russell (Garrett, Thief series), as well as female protagonist Emily, a little girl in Dishonored, now grown-up and commanding fearsome powers. The game will release for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on November 11.

Quake Champions

We’ve also been shown the freshly-announced Quake Champions. This one is aimed primarily at the PC gaming, multiplayer-loving crowd, with unlocked frame rates and aggressive, fast-paced arena gameplay, just like in the old days.

Prey 2

The rumors were true: Prey is indeed coming back, though not necessarily in a way many of us might’ve expected – we’re not dealing with Prey 2, but rather a reboot of sorts. The new game, also called Prey (I’m sure that won’t get confusing…), will take you to the year 2032 aboard a massive space station attacked by alien forces – your job is to survive. At first glance, that seems a touch like System Shock to us, so we eagerly await the game when it releases sometime next year.

Skyrim Remaster

And while we’re at the topic of leaked gaming announcements, Bethesda was indeed working on a remastered Special Edition of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. 2011’s hugely popular open world RPG returns on October 28, shinier and more colorful than ever; what’s more, PC players who have already purchased the game and all its DLC on Steam (see: the Legendary Edition) will receive the remaster as a free upgrade.

Mass Effect Andromeda

And while we’re not a huge fans of Battlefield or sports, there was at least one thing during EA’s conference that piqued our curiosity: indeed, we’ve seen a bit more of Mass Effect: Andromeda, and we can’t wait to try it out ourselves. The conference showed us a glimpse of the various exotic worlds we’ll be exploring across the galaxy, hopefully sooner than later: the game is scheduled to release sometime in 2017 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
