Mark your calendars for this November.
'Fallout' fans don't have to wait much longer. 'Fallout 4' will hit the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 10, 2015, Bethesda announced today at its E3 showcase.
Viewers were also treated to a huge amount of new gameplay footage.
In 'Fallout 4,' players actually start the game in the time before the apocalypse. Players get to create their own character—male or female—using incredibly powerful customization tools.
After the player is sent 200 years into the post-apocalyptic future (Bethesda kind of glossed over that part), players can explore the completely open-world landscape of Boston, along with an AI dog companion that understands the player's commands, such as guarding a specific location or fetching an item out in the distance.
The game also includes a neat crafting mode, where the player can harvest raw materials from random items in the open world and use them to build anything from a sniper scope to an entire community. Players can begin the post-apocalyptic reconstruction process themselves by building their own little village, creating its infrastructure, and setting up defenses so its residents can ward off raider attacks.
To make the experience complete, Bethesda also announced its second-screen experience for the game, based predictably on the Pip-Boy. The game's collectors edition will include a wearable Pip-Boy replica with a slot meant to hold a smartphone. By downloading the companion app, players can use their very own functional Pip-Boy to check out their stats, inventory, and more while playing. Of course, the second-screen app will be accessible to everyone with a compatible device, regardless of whether or not they spring for the actual Pip-Boy replica.
