When it was announced just last month, a lot of people anticipated that Bethesda’s Fallout 4 would carry a 2016 release date. We now know, though, that this isn’t the case, and that the game will be released this year.
According to Bethesda themselves (via EW), Fallout 4 will be released on November 10th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The game is strictly a “new-gen” affair, with Bethesda having recently announced that the game’s ambition and technological use will make it too powerful to run on either the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, both of which are rapidly approaching their 10th year in production. Additionally, Bethesda’s effort automatically joins the end of the year’s most anticipated game releases, standing alongside Activision and Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Electronic Arts and DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront, and Microsoft Studios and 343 Industries’ Halo 5: Guardians, among several others.
Fallout 4 will primarily take place in the post-nuclear ruins of Boston, Massachusetts, with players able to explore wilderness, visit towns, and complete side missions at their leisure just like in previous Fallout and RPG games. According to The Verge, though, the fourth game adds the significant addition of building your own homestead, scavenging materials from the environment in order to create a home that can start as a shack, but that can eventually be built into something far more substantial. The more you build, the more survivors you’ll attract, eventually having the ability to create your own compound.
More news for Fallout 4 will likely be taking shape later this week, so keep an eye on GeekNation for any new developments in the upcoming fourth installment of the popular series.
