Possibly the best game announced by Bethesda, and it’s not even out yet! Fallout 4. Ever since Bethada had their own press conference back at E3 it’s been the most widely talked about and most anticipated game this year. Here’s some things to expect on November 10th, just in case you’ve been living under a rock these past months.
Fallout 4 is going to take place in a post-apocalyptic Boston and feature a wide variety of new features to the series. Everything from a new combat system in V.A.T.S. (Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System) to crafting and customizing your own weapons and armor, to building your own house all of which you have a choice of doing or not.
As in every fallout game there are factions you can choose to help, join or destroy. The Brotherhood of Steel are going to be a major presence in Boston along with The Commonwealth Minute Men. There are some factions you might want to stay away from like the raiders and the Super Mutants; back from Fallout 3 and looking tougher than ever.
They’ve also added settlements where you can build defenses to defend your village from raider attacks. Upgrade turrets, recruit NPCs to defend your settlement and have Brahmin caravans between multiple settlements for trade. All of which you can choose to do or not.
Bethesda also added a new dialog system. With this, interaction with other NPCs is more fluid and conversational. If you’re a pacifist, you can play the entire game without killing anything and talking your way through a conversation that would otherwise end in bullets flying through the air.
Unlike most other games Fallout is an open world, and you get to make choices in the world at your own discretion. Whether it’s good or evil. How ever you plan on playing Fallout and those decisions you make, makes Fallout a one of a kind enjoyable experience that tells the story on how you make it.
