#Bethesda held their #E3 2017 press conference yesterday, holding an event that was shorter than previous press conferences -- roughly 40 minutes in length. At the conference they announced "The Evil Within 2" and "#Wolfenstein: The New Colossus," along with some DLC for their current games, virtual reality support, and more.

Virtual reality support, Creation Club, and Quake

Bethesda announced that two of their popular games from recent years, "Fallout 4" and "Doom" would be getting virtual reality (VR) versions. "Fallout 4 VR" is set to come out this October, while "Doom VR" doesn't have a release date yet. In recent years the company made it possible for console gamers to download mods like their PC counterparts for "Fallout 4" and "Skyrim: Special Edition."

Now, Bethesda has taken what will likely be a controversial next step among gamers with the announcment of the Creation Club.

This will allow Bethesda and various outside developers -- like modders -- to create mods and other content for Bethesda games. Credits will have to be spent to purchase mods, with these credits likely costing money to purchase. Bethesda also revealed that their upcoming game in the Quake series "Quake: Champions," will have its own world championship e-sport event at this years QuakeCon on August 26th.

DLC for existing games

Bethesda announced DLC for its 2016 game "Dishonored 2" in the form of "Dishonored: Death of the Outsider." Much like the two part DLC for the original, this will feature Doud and Billie Lurk as major characters. As the name suggests, they are on a quest to try to kill the mysterious Outsider.

The recently released "Elder Scrolls Legends" -- a free-to-play collectible card game -- is getting Skyrim-based content on June 29th called Heroes of Skyrim.

"The Elder Scrolls: Online" will also be getting new DLC in the coming months in the form of the Horns of the Reach and Clockwork City DLC packs.

Two new games announced

The biggest announcements from Bethesda's E3 2017 press conference consisted of two new games, "The Evil Within 2" and "Wolfenstein: The New Colossus." For "The Evil Within 2," Bethesda showed off a three minute trailer that showed a little gameplay. They also announced that the game will be coming out on October 13th.

For the newest Wolfenstein game, they showed off an even longer eight-and-a-half minute trailer, which also had a bit of gameplay, but was mostly cinematic. This game also has an October release date -- October 27th.
