Fallout 4 E3 Announcement

 

Bethesda's E3 conference has just finished, and now comes to time to share with you all everything that is Fallout 4. The game will be releasing on November 10th of this year, and will show the Fallout World in a way that we have never seen before, pre-bomb, before the nuclear war and the world's end.  

  

Fallout 4 E3 Announcement  

Hosting the discussion on Fallout 4 is Bethesda's Todd Howard, a veteran game director that worked on titles like Fallout 3, Skyrim and Oblivion. 

As I said at the start, the game begins before the bombs fall, back when the world is peaceful but fearing the impending war. You start off the game with a single choice, male or female like most open world games, but you will need to build both as your non-player character will be your husband or wife.

 You begin at the start of the game in front of a mirror, where you can adjust your character without any sliders, making the character feel much more unique to each player. Your chosen gender will depend on who you leave the mirror as, as both characters can be changed in this menu.

After your characters creation, you will explore your house, which comes complete with your own personal robotic housekeeper called Cosworth, you will also get a visit from your Local Vault-Tec representative, who you will provide with your own character's details and assign skill points in order to access their local vault. 

After playing with your newborn son, who will be generated depending on your male and female character's visual traits, you will be prompted by Cosworth to watch the television, where the local news will inform you that the war has began. 

You, your partner and child will quickly run to vault 111, but the first bombs hit before you manage to get inside.

After the bombs hit, the player's character will be taken into the vault 111 and will emerge from that Vault as it's sole survivor 200 years after the bombs first hit. This is where the game truly begins. 

Upon reaching your former home you will reconnect with Cosworth, who will inform you of the situation, you will also meet a dog, a German Shepard, which will act as a companion during the game.  

The player will be able to control where the dog goes, who it can attack and allow it to pick up/ fetch some items for you.

The game will be build on Bethesda's next generation of their Creation Engine, which is the same game engine which was used in Skyrim. It will feature 3rd and first person viewing modes, which can be easily switched at any time, even during dialogue. 

VATs will make a return, allowing players to tactically line up their shots and kill enemies.  All weapons will be fully customisable, but to a very high degree, allowing weapons to completely change in appearance and functionality  as you upgrade it. Even the famous laser pistol can be transformed into a rifle, complete with a scope. 

Even your armour can be customised, but alongside that the game will feature what the developers call a layered armour system, though right now it is unknown what exactly this means.

The game will be based in Boston and features a much more saturated colour set when compared to Fallout 3, making Fallout 4 feel much more alive than it's predecessor.

Above you can see a picture of a real life Pip Boy, which will come with the collector's edition of the game. It can be used instead of the game's in-game Pip Boy for those who want that kind of Dual Screen Experience, alternatively an Android and iOS app can be used. 

In Fallout 4 players will also be able to build their own settlements, allowing the player to clear land and build on it as they see fit. This will allow the player to create an area which is personal to them and their character, NPC characters will also move to this area as it develops, so the area will truly feel alive, rather than just a player built house with no story or character. 

Player made settlements will also need to set up defences, as bandits will occasionally attack the settlement. The game's settlements can have their own power systems, allowing the player to set traps, defensive mechs among other things to defend their territory.

If like me you cannot wait until this game releases in November, right now you can download Bethesda's new iOS game, Fallout Shelter, where you can manage your own vault. In this game you manage all parts of Vault like, from sending out scouting parties for supplies, rationing water and food, to expanding and populating the vault itself. 

Right now it is unclear is Bethesda will somehow link this game into your own fallout 4 experience.

Right now Fallout 4 is looking very interesting, adding many new features and giving players a must more customisable and unique experience. We will embed the full E3 press conference here as soon as it is available.

 

You can join the discussion on Fallout 4 and Bethesda's E3 Press conference on the OC3D Forums.
