There have been a lot of teasers and other kind of rumors related to Fallout 4 jumping around but it all ends now, yesterday at eve of E3 Bethesda confirmed the release date of ‘Fallout 4’. Fallout 4 is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 10th.
Bethesda revealed Fallout 4 earlier this month with a teaser site and a trailer full of brighter colors and a friendly dog companion. Plus: The robot butler of your dreams. The Fallout team has been working on 4 since the launch of Fallout 3 in 2009, Bethesda announced on-stage today. Fallout 4 includes the series’ most in-depth character-customization process and it showcases a dynamic dialogue system that lets you “walk away at any point.”
Also new in Fallout 4, there’s a crafting system. Players can create their own settlements — build power stations to run turrets and other fancy, electrical fortress elements. In addition, the weapon-modding system is robust, with 50 base weapons and more than 700 modifications, plus a separate UI for the power armor.
“Player freedom remains our absolute number one goal. We like to fill our worlds with thousands of items so you can interact with them, and now they have purpose.”
Fallout 4 is running a new version of the creation engine, and the abundance of environmental detail is clear. I can’t tell a lot in the way of characters except for the main character (which looked pretty good), and a pre-apocalypse salesman (which didn’t). Bethesda is teasing a lot of “new” for the game but says it’s trying to avoid spoiling any story details beyond the character-building basics. Fortunately, we won’t have to wait long to explore the wasteland — after working “very, very hard” on Fallout 4 for the last four years, the game is now just months away from release.
