The Bethesda E3 conference has finally been announced by Bethesda Softworks via the company’s Twitter account.

The conference, which is the second in a row from the Bethesda Conference from E3 2015 (which announced Fallout 4), is set to start on June 12, at 7 PM Pacific Time. A pre-show will begin at 6:15.

This is six hours after the Electronic Arts keynote, normally on Monday but adjusted to Sunday at 1 PM Pacific Time for this E3.

The Bethesda E3 conference will last for an hour, and will be augmented with another event called BE3 Plus show, which will be livestreamed after the showcase.

The conference will likely be focusing on Doom and Dishonored 2, Bethesda’s most hotly anticipated games this year since Fallout 4 was released last year along with its companion mobile game, Fallout Shelter.

Neither Doom or Dishonored 2 have any confirmed release date beyond sometime this year, and both were spoken about and announced, respectively at last year’s E3 conference and somewhat overshadowed by the announcement of Fallout 4.

Another area of focus may be more Fallout 4 DLC. The Mechanist DLC was released a few months ago, and the Far Harbor DLC (which was recently said to be even larger than Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls DLC The Shivering Isles) will be releasing at some point during the year.

If any Bethesda fans live in Los Angeles, they can register for a chance to attend the event live. Last year’s Bethesda E3 conference was attended by around 1,000 fans.

We can only hope at what will be announced at this year’s E3, but hopefully it will blow us away with how many awesome new games look like they’re going to be coming out, especially with rumors of Titanfall 2, and the confirmation that The Last Guardian is still being worked on.
