Fallout 4 revealed

Yesterday, Fallout’s homepage on the Bethesda Softworks website changed into a countdown which ended this morning and finally, after what felt like decades of waiting, the developer announced this morning that Fallout 4 is finally happening.

No info outside of the trailer has been released, such as platforms or a release date, but I think it’s safe to assume it’ll be on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and most likely PC as well. I saw rumors that it’s going to be cross generation (on PS3 and Xbox 360) but I don’t think they are true.

From the trailer alone, it seems like a portion of Fallout 4 may be taking place before the bombs fell, or at least, as they are falling. If I had to guess, it may be a portion of the game’s opening sequence, taking on the role of an older family member of the eventual main character (who goes on to leave the Vault) during the time when the war begins and the Vaults become active.

And while it’s not known for sure, it also seems likely that Fallout 4 will be taking place in and around the Boston area, which was inferred during the events of Fallout 3 when you meet a character from a place known as The Institute in Rivet City, which is described as being north of the Capital Wasteland and many believe is M.I.T., the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The visual style of the trailer is really, really slick, keeping the distinct art style from Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas but upgrading every facet to be more colorful, detailed and striking. It also seems like there will be much more urban environments in Fallout 4 than previous games. There are a few shots of a larger cityscape in the trailer which I can only assume is part of Boston or at least The Institute. And like previous games, The Enclave and Brotherhood of Steel seem like they will be playing a large role in the game. Outside of the fact that it seems you can recruit a sidekick (specifically a dog as featured in the trailer), as far as story details go, your guess is as good as mine.

My only reservation about Fallout 4 from this initial trailer is that the overall environment looks a little too similar to Fallout 3. However, I’m hoping that perception changes as time goes on and more information becomes known.

With E3 coming up on June 16-18, I’m hoping more info will be made known about Fallout 4. And since I have to believe Bethesda has been working on it since New Vegas came out about five years ago, here’s hoping that they have a lot to show with all the eyes that are going to be on E3 and that the release date is sooner rather than later.
