Fallout 4 Officially Revealed

Runtime: 3:03    Author: BethesdaSoftworksUK    Category: Trailers

Bethesda Softworks have officially revealed Fallout 4 for release on the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC, and released an in-game trailer alongside the launch of the game’s website.

The trailer shows a range of interesting characters, technology and locations, most notably the Boston Dome at the 2 minute 3 second mark, leading to believe the game will be set in and around The Commonwealth - the Fallout universe’s fictional version of Massachusetts that has been mentioned in previous Fallout titles.

Several mainstays from the Fallout series also make appearances within the trailer. What appears to be the player character’s optional pet, Dogmeat, can be seen in much of the footage and in the downloadable image from the website. Also, voice actor Ron Pearlman can be heard speaking throughout the trailer, talking about losing communication with other stations, nuclear detonations, and finishing up with the Fallout tagline, “War, War Never Changes”.

Another interesting note is that the possible Vault 111 player character seems to be voiced, with their words to the dog, “Let’s go pal” ending the in-game portion of the trailer. No word yet on whether that is indeed the player character or if it will be possible to play as a male or female, but if the previous two Fallout releases (Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas) are anything to go by, this will be an option.

The reveal itself jumped the official announcement and trailer, that occurred at 2am NZST, with the game’s website going live for a short time an hour ahead of schedule, with images from the site being posted on NeoGAF. The website is now accessible, and shows box art for the title, pre-order options, images, and the systems it will be releasing on, confirming that it will be for the current-gen only, and will not be releasing on the Xbox 360, and Playstation 3.

With the release of the trailer, in a tweet on the official Bethesda Game Studios Twitter page, they also teased more information regarding Fallout 4 to be revealed at their E3 press conference on June 15th at 2pm NZST. “To our amazing fans, we can’t wait to show you everything on June 14th at the #BE3 Showcase. Hope you can all tune in.”

Fallout 4 has been rumoured to be in production for some time now, the latest of which claiming that Guillermo Del Toro's production company worked on a cinematic trailer. Possible information leaks have stretched back further though, with rumors appearing in 2012, 2013, and 2014 suggesting the game would be set in the Boston area - claims that appear to have had some truth to them.

Fallout 3 was released in 2008 where we scored it an 8.8, and was followed up with Fallout: New Vegas in 2010, which received the NZGamer.com score of 9.

The series has been awesome so there is no doubt I will get the next game but those graphics look pretty average, especially given its a trailer. Is this the non-hd trailer version???

Great trailer. Hopefully the in-game animations will be similar to the trailer.
Bound to be my next Day1 purchase.

I see Dogmeat is now a German Shepherd. In FO3, he was, I believe, a Blue Heeler in tribute to Mad Max. Definitely not German Shepherd.

Also wasn't that Death Claw amazing!!!!

I want to see co-op so my mate can be my dog, or whatever. before you get worked up, I'm not asking for multiplayer deathmatches (yech), I just want to experience the Bostonian Wastelands with a mate. that's all.

When the credits started to roll on the final DLC to Fallout: New Vegas that I played, Lonesome Road, I was literally weeping trying to stave off all of that canon that was falling down about my head. It was a long, much beloved journey. Bethesda surely got it right in regards to the lore and the canon that it sits inside of. I KNOW they will get the same reaction out of me when the credits roll on the final DLC of Fallout 4, they're good like that... (Fallout wise anyways)

FO3 was an awesome trailer. I love that Bethesda don't do CGI trailers, they just use in game footage. More developers need to be like that.
