Fallout 4 is so massive; the lead producer still hasn't explored everything.

Bethesda's latest entry into the Fallout universe is so massive, even its developers are still discovering new things to explore.


Anyone familiar with a Bethesda RPG knows a player can spend hundreds of hours exploring without completing a single story quest. With that said, Fallout 4 will likely be Bethesda’s most expansive game yet.

Fallout 4’s lead producer Jeff Gardiner said he is still finding new things to explore in the radiated wastelands of Boston. “I’ve played the game probably 400 hours, and I’m still finding stuff that I haven’t seen yet,” Gardiner said in an interview with GamesRadar.

Todd Howard, Fallout 4’s game director, added, “I’ll be playing the game and run into something and be like, ‘Who built this? What is this? It’s so big!’”

Among the new additions to Fallout is the ability to build houses; however, they won’t have any real purpose to the main storyline. Another welcome add-on is your indestructible canine companion, Dogmeat, will never surrender himself to the afterlife.

Fallout 4 releases November 10. To learn more details about the new title, take a look at our E3 coverage and check out our primer to brush up on your Fallout history.

      I hope it's a "good" massive, not Dragon Age: Inquisiton-massive, with a shitload of pointless quests, and lots of empty spaces or funky terrain geometry that keeps getting your character stuck.

      Rather have it smaller with unique content instead of tons of copy/paste sections.

        He didn't say that though. He just said after 400 hours he still finds new stuff.

        It's not even remotely crazy, given that after 250 hours in Skyrim, I still find new things every time I play, and they're saying this game is their biggest yet.

      I wonder if they'll let obsidian make a "new vegas" for this and if obsidian is even interested in doing another project like this.

        I want this. I loved Fallout 3 but I loved NV even more, and there's a lot of leftover Van Buren stories that they could use. I note Obsidian are not doing South Park...

        I got the impression that they didn't exactly end on good terms post-NV.
