Fallout 4 has been highly anticipated for five years and finally the release date is in sight.
Having to wait far too long for a sequel brings hype to a fan base that has impossibly high expectations, but Bethesda do seem to be rising up to the challenge. Everything from the tower-defence shelter building to the colourful palette (a first in the Fallout universe) to the new crafting system is displaying how expansive this game is.
New to a Bethesda game is a voiced character, actually speaking dialogue instead of just selecting words from a list of text. This is the most controversial thing shown so far, with some complaining that this takes away from the blank space that people fill with themselves. It looks to be excellent, but only in future trailers will it be known if this is a nuisance or not.
The variety of weaponry has also been expanded a great deal. Instead of fixed weapons to which modifications are added, the system is much more modular. The player will decide on each section of their weapons, which includes changing out the barrel, the scope or even changing the projectile fired.
Fallout 4 will be released on the 10th of November on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC.
