Doom Eternal

QuakeCon 2019 is happening this week, and Doom will naturally have a big focus. Bethesda is planning a pair of panels for the series – one after the main keynote on July 26, and another for July 27. Saturday’s presentation will feature the first live gameplay demo of Doom Eternal.

Here’s the full rundown:

Wolfenstein: Youngblood

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is coming to Switch thanks to the porting efforts of Panic Button. This isn’t the studio’s first go-around with the console, as they previously helped bring a couple of other Bethesda titles to the console – including Wolfenstein II.

Youngblood executive producer Jerk Gustafsson commented on the Switch version in an interview with GamesBeat. He said that it’s “a miracle” and called the folks at Panic Button “magicians.”

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is now available to pre-load from the eShop. By doing so, you can purchase the game in advance and download its required data. The title takes up 20.6GB of space.

Youngblood is slightly smaller than the previous Wolfenstein game. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is a 22GB download on Switch.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood launches on July 26.

Doom Eternal

Dark Horse has announced that it is producing a hardcover art book for Doom Eternal. Spanning nearly 200 pages, it will feature concept art from the game as well as commentary from the game’s development.

Here’s a full overview of the book:

Bethesda’s Pete Hines has again commented on the company’s support of Switch, and has shared some interesting information in the process.

According to Hines, a segment of Nintendo’s audience “plays other kinds of things on their platform that also likes our stuff.” On top of that, Switch’s userbase involves a good amount of players “whose entry point into the platform is our title.” Hines ultimately concludes that Bethesda is actually bringing new players to the console.

At E3 2019, Bethesda kindly invited us to their booth for a gameplay demo and behind-closed-doors interview for their upcoming Switch release, The Elder Scrolls: Blades. In part seven of this series, I’ll be taking a deeper look at how the experience stacks up on Nintendo Switch with classic button controls.

You can hear me chatting about all things gaming (and more) on our weekly podcast, available on iTunes, Spotify, and many other platforms.

For detailed impressions of The Elder Scrolls: Blades, check below the break.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades

Following its announcement of a Switch release earlier this week, we were able to try out The Elder Scrolls: Blades at E3 2019. Get a look at some portable footage from our play session below.

At E3 2019, Wolfenstein: Youngblood was playable for the first time on Switch. Take a look at some off-screen footage from the demo below.

Doom Eternal

One of the new features we found out about for Doom Eternal this past week is Battlemode. In this multiplayer mode, a fully-armed Doom Slayer goes up against against two player-controlled demons in first-person combat.

As far as multiplayer goes, that’ll be just about it for Doom Eternal. Executive producer Marty Stratton told IGN at E3 this week that there will not be any other traditional multiplayer mode in the game.

To close out today’s Nintendo Treehouse: Live stream from E3 2019, The Elder Scrolls: Blades was shown off. Get a look at the recorded segment below for gameplay.
