E3 2015 – Falling in Love with Fallout 4
At E3 this year Bethesda have made their very first appearance. They had a lot to show us, but Fallout 4 was definitely the highlight for me.
This time we’ll likely be in Boston, as is evident by the statue of Paul Revere in the trailer. The character we see in the video is wearing a Vault 111 jumpsuit, so one must figure that we’re not too far from Vault 101 of Fallout 3. Still, you never know; it wouldn’t be the first time we were misled by a game developer just too fool us. They certainly didn’t confirm the location in the presentation.
Nothing in the presentation doesn’t excite me. A flash to what is and what was just sends my imagination sky rocketing. I’m sure I’m not alone in thinking that if Bethesda did nothing different other than the story, many of us would still be very happy. We know though that we get so much more to go with our story and adventure. There will not only be weapon and power armour crafting, but we get to build our own little town. I don’t know about anyone else, but I bet I lose whole days to the crafting in addition to the random wandering of the landscape.
We get a peak into the character creation as well. You do get to play as a male or female and you have complete control over your features to a level not seen before. This time your chosen sex seems to be less superficial so chosing your looks actually my have more use.
There’s a whole bunch of little goodies in the Fallout 4 presentation though, such as a peak at the collector’s edition.
