Bethesda gave Fallout fans the reveal of a lifetime as Fallout 4 was announced earlier this month. Through the power of observation, we learned we’ll be adventuring through a post-apocalyptic Boston while also speculating on what exactly we just saw in Fallout 4’s first trailer. Bethesda teased we would be learning more about Fallout 4 at E3, and today, that’s exactly what it did during its first-ever E3 conference.
First fans took to cheering as Bethesda revealed that Fallout 4's game would begin just before the dropping of the bombs. Set within the most detailed open world they've crafted yet, the game will take place within Boston 200 years after the first bombs dropped.They also revealed a new, more detailed character creation system, and an even more enhances armor system.
Bethesda also announced a special Pipboy Collector's Edition of the game which will feature a specially built Pipboy which you can then plug your smart phone into. For those who don't pick up the special edition of the game, you'll be able to download the fully working application for your Android or IOS device.
Ever played Fallout and thought 'man I wish I could rebuild all this stuff?' Well now you can. Starting in Fallout 4 players will be able to completely rebuild and decorate structures throughout the game world. Customize and construct in real time, building up your settlement with the arrival of new citizens and merchants. Craft power grids, build turrets, and defend your settlement from incoming raiders. Along with large-scale settlements, players will also be able to build items like scopes for their favorite weapon, giving new purpose to all the random junk you can find throughout the world. With these new upgrades you'll be able to upgrade your favorite weapons, and even customize your very own set of Power Armor.
Fallout 4 will release for Xbox One, PS4, and PC November 10th, 2015.
Josh Hawkins posted a new article, E3 2015: Bethesda Announces Fallout 4 Release Date of November 10, 2015
I look forward to taking the week of December 10th off to play. Once there are 2-3 patches out I bet it'll be fucking great.
completely unexpected release date... wonder if it will be delayed.
When Valve announced HL2 at E3 in 2003 and said it would be available for purchase in October or whatever it was amazing, since it would be such a huge AAA game announced months before it was released, not years. Of course it didn't quite pan out that way and was instead released in November 2004. We figured it was too good to be true.
Now we have AAA games developed in secret for years and announced a few months ahead of release on a regular basis and no one bats an eye. Right now there's probably 3-4 Call of Duty games in development and none of them will be announced until the same year they get released.
Just an observation is all.
