Bethesda reveals Fallout 4 ahead of E3
Fans sat at their computers waiting with bated breath, watching the mysterious countdown that suddenly appeared on Bethesda’s website yesterday. Could it be that a new main title was forthcoming? Or was it going to be another attempt at an MMO? Was it going to be remake of New Vegas? Was it going to be a Netflix original series?
The speculation is over, however, with the release of the Fallout 4 official trailer on June 4, at midnight AEST.
The current trailer doesn’t give much away but it would seem that this installment will show more about the events of the war, as there are a number of scenes from before the destruction interlaced with the current state of the world. A character in a Vault 111 jumpsuit also appears in the trailer. No prior games have contained information about this vault. It is possible that this will be the playable character.
The world premiere of the game will take place during Bethesda’s E3 Showcase being held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California on June 14th beginning at 7.00pm PST, and streamed live around the world via Twitch and YouTube.
Fallout 4 is being developed for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC by award-winning Bethesda Game Studios® under the direction of Todd Howard. This eagerly-awaited game is the follow up to the 2008 ‘Game of the Year’, Fallout® 3, and the first title from the world-renowned studio since the release of their global phenomenon and 2011 ‘Game of the Year’, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim®.
“We know what this game means to everyone,” said Game Director, Todd Howard, “The time and technology have allowed us to be more ambitious than ever. We’ve never been more excited about a game, and we can’t wait to share it.”
No release date has been given as of yet and the official website contains nothing more than the trailer at the moment. Nevertheless, it will soon be the time to drag out your power armour and get ready to wander the wasteland again. The relief is palpable.
