Xbox + Bethesda E32021 Event Recap
Today marked the historical first join E3 Event from both Xbox and Bethesda now that Bethesda is officially under the Xbox umbrella. We got exciting news and updates from both sides of the Xbox and Bethesda fences.
We got a much anticipated look at Bethesda's upcoming Starfield, even if only a cinematic trailer with a late 2022 release date. Xbox Bethesda also gave many updates on popular live service / gamepads games such as ESO, Fallout 76, and Doom Eternal.
Whatever you do, you have to watch the Outer Worlds 2 trailer because it is just that funny.
We also got a much needed update on Halo Infinite with both a new albeit brief story trailer, alongside an energetic Multiplayer trailer. While light on big announcements, surprise appearances, the event did deliver on bringing games. Thanks to the now combined presence of Xbox and Bethesda, the quantity of titles was good. I give the Event a Fair to Good rating.

A Plague Tale: Requiem
I regret never playing the first Plague Tale because I know that it is a great game from everyone who has played it. I might just need to make time now that a sequel is coming.
The Outer Worlds 2
Ok, if you watch ONE trailer from this event, watch this one. It is hilariously self aware and an entire parody of E3 game trailers. This is the sort of self-humor that I just love. Best trailer of the event.
