Bethesda Back With a Conference E3 2016
I was not expecting this at all. I was in the belief that Bethesda does one E3 press conference and wait until more bigger news come together to throw them at us at once. However, here is Bethesda announcing their comeback to E3 this year with another press conference. What will we see? Probably more DOOM, Fallout 4, and Dishonored 2, maybe a new Wolfenstein game, not at all a new Elder Scrolls title, they couldn't have worked on that one, or could they?
The conference starts at 7:00pm PT on June 26th in Los Angeles. I'm excited like last year, as it was one of my favorite press conferences from last year's E3.

Hitman Beta and More
The world's best assassin is back; Hitman comes to PS4 on March 11th this year. Starting the action, a beta starts on February 12th, for which you will get guaranteed access if you pre-order the Full Experience or the Intro Pack versions of the game. The Full Experience gives you, who would have thought, the full experience, meaning you get the full game, access to the beta, and some extras such as the Intro Pack, which is the prologue of the game, the PlayStation exclusive content, the Sarajevo Six, the Blood Money Requiem, and more.
The new trailer is also live and gives some keywords of being an assassin. Watch below.
