We’ve reached the 30-minute warning for Bethesda’s E3 press conference, and that means it’s time for everyone to gather around their computer screens and prepare for the imminent bombs of the commencing E3 2015 media showcase. Before I get the urge to drop a paragraph’s worth of semi-appropriate nuclear holocaust jokes, I’d like to kick things off and express how much of an honor and pleasure it has been covering video games for you all! I hope that you enjoy E3, and that we are able to provide the most elaborate inside look into the event, almost as if you were physically ushered in by the super tight security guards of the LA convention center yourself. And on that note, let’s rock!
Join us as we embark on our E3 2015 journey, kicking things off with the first ever Bethesda press conference. What will we find out about the recently announced Fallout 4? Now that they’ve let the Dishonored 2 cat out of the bag early, what can we expect from Corvo Attano and friends? It’s time to find out this and more, so sit back, grab a fresh taste beverage, and enjoy the slew of awesome announcements and reveals that are sure to come this evening.
You can catch the live stream at the top of the page, and for some insightful commentary, Dan Casey and I will be live-blogging the entire show down below. Also, remember to stop back by tomorrow, as you’ll be able to catch the Xbox, EA, Ubisoft, and PlayStation media briefings all here on Nerdist.
