Bethesda Softworks will return to Los Angeles in 2016 for its second pre-E3 press briefing, the publisher announced today on Twitter.

Bethesda's E3 2016 press conference is scheduled to start Sunday, June 12, at 7 p.m. PT. The company did not specify a venue.

Last year, Bethesda held a pre-E3 showcase for the first time, also on the Sunday of E3 week. During the show, the publisher announced the long-rumored Fallout 4, unveiled and released the mobile game Fallout Shelter, went into a deep dive on Doom, announced Dishonored 2, and more.

This year's event could focus on Doom and Dishonored 2 — neither of which has a confirmed release date beyond 2016 at this point — as well as downloadable content for Fallout 4, which Bethesda has announced is on the way but hasn't detailed. The company is also working on the free-to-play game BattleCry.

Bethesda's show will begin six hours after Electronic Arts' keynote, which usually takes place Monday afternoon but will kick off at 1 p.m. PT on Sunday this year.
