E3 2015: Fallout 4 Coming Out This November
Live, die, and live again in a different post-apocalyptic franchise.

Bethesda announced during their E3 2015 press conference that the highly anticipated post-apocalyptic RPG Fallout 4 will be making its way to PS4, XBox One, and PC on November 10th of this year. Todd Howard confirmed that the game had been development ever since the release of Fallout 3, but still, that's a pretty incredible turn-around from announcement to release, if I do say so myself! Fallout 4 will be available in two editions- a standard edition and a "Pip Boy" edition (currently priced at $119.99 USD) that comes with an actual Pip Boy that fits your phone. Perhaps not coincidentally, there's a downloadable app called Fallout Shelter that works in conjunction with Fallout 4. Running on a next-gen version of Bethesda's Creation Engine, the company promises that this will be their most ambitious game to date.
We were also treated to a hefty amount of new gameplay. We get a glimpse of character creation and the ability to play as either a male or a female, before the bombs drop and our character emerges from Vault 111. We can then see the player character finding a Pip Boy (which includes the game's armor system as well as playable tapes and games). V.A.T.S. and the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system are making their return, but there are new features as well. Players will also be able to create and populate their own settlement, as well as modify their weapons and power armor. You can take a look at the new gameplay footage below to see these features in greater detail, and be ready for when Fallout 4 drops on November 10th.
