Yesterday a count down appeared on Bethesda’s website, and today after it reached zero we got the first trailer for Fallout 4. Many of us here at thebuttonsmashers.com have played fallout 3 and we all moderately liked the game. We each had a few grievances with it, but the overall consensus was that we liked it, so its safe to say that we are pretty much looking forward to the next game in the franchise. The trailer showed a lot more of the fourth entry than I was expecting. We even got to see the main character, who we assume will be editable given that past games in the franchise protagonists were.
We also got to see some of what the world should look like. The in game locations Bethesda chose to show in this trailer were stunning, featuring some amazing lighting effects that grabbed my attention. Then there’s the dog. Many fallout players formed a bond with the dog in the third entry, and so I’m sure they will be very pleased to see it making a return.
From what I can gather from the trailer. The gaming is looking to be an upgrade from the previous entries from a visual point of view. Its going to be a current gen exclusive (PS4, Xbox One, & PC) so Bethesda who are better known for their PC pedigree should be able to squeeze out their best looking/ playing game ever. This is not to say that this is an instant preorder, because we have yet to play/ see any actual gameplay. I say lets just bask in the knowledge that a new fallout game has been announced, and wait till E3 for anymore potential information.
