Fallout is back, and, as expected, it’s headed to post-apocalyptic Boston. You can watch the first (great) trailer right here.
As we already know thanks to an accidental early website leak, Fallout 4 is official, and it’s coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
It’s been seven years since Fallout 3, the first and only Fallout game developed by Bethesda Game Studios so far. Fallout: New Vegas, released in 2010, was created by the independent studio Obsidian Games. Over the past few years, people have been going nuts in anticipation for Bethesda’s next game, which we all assumed would be Fallout 4. Now, it’s official. After shipping The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in 2011, Bethesda Game Studios moved on to the next Fallout.
Bethesda is promising that we’ll see more during their E3 press conference, and I imagine we’ll see a lengthy gameplay demo as well as an official release window. (A fall 2015 release would be wonderful.)
In December of 2013, we reported that Fallout 4 was real and set in Boston. A year and a half later, we’re finally seeing the game in action.
