Fallout 4, the latest in the Fallout video game series, is real. Bethesda Softworks, the Maryland-based video game publisher responsible for publishing such hits as The Elder Scroll series, released the official in-game trailer, which was published on their YouTube channel, and according to IGN, the company has confirmed that the game is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
The trailer shows a canine, what appears to be German Shepherd, walking through the remains of an old house while it flashes between past and present, giving a sense of how it all went down after global nuclear war broke out. The trailer also reveals the game’s post-apocalytic, retro-futuristic setting to be Boston, Massachusetts.
Bethesda Game Studios, the same company which introduced gamers to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, a smashing success in the world of open-world gaming, may have introduced a first in the Fallout series with a voiced playable protagonist, that is, if the character featured in the trailer is the player character, Game Spot noted in a report.
In the trailer, the narrator — who is the same narrator from Fallout 3, Ron Perlman — can be heard using the iconic line which has been consistently used throughout the series, “War never changes.”
War never changes.
The E3 Expo at which the game is scheduled to be revealed is a week long event in which massive announcements in the gaming industry come one after the next. During its E3 press conference in June, Bethesda plans to show a real-time gameplay demo from Fallout 4.
On June 14, 2015, at 7:00 p.m. (PT), fans can turn into Bethesda’s E3 Showcase in order to watch the game’s world premiere.
The game is presently available for pre-order on Amazon.
For those who missed it, Magic Leap released a new augmented-reality video game trailer back in March which shows a minute-and-a-half of robot zapping madness.
