Anyone want to speculate wildly about the Fallout page's countdown?

I'm gonna go out on a limb here. This is gonna be radical. It's all a trick.

 

It's really Half-life 4 confirmed. What happened to 3? That's where fallout comes in. Nuclear fall out. Skip right to 4.

Did I say Half-life 4? Totally meant Fallout 4.

So from what I've gathered from Reddit, it'll take place in Boston this time, you have to play a guy, and he talks. As in voice acted lines. That's pretty different for a Fallout game.

I really hope they don't go through with forcing you to do anything with player character other than being a vault dweller.  Every Fallout game has let you create your character, and even the first let you play as a woman.  All of the Elder Scrolls games have also been very open about you creating your character so again I hope they don't go through with that idea.

ADMIN: Changing topic name so we can just include previous discussion in ongoing Fallout 4 talk.

Attaching the Bethesda talk form last night.  Please skip to about an hour in for Fallout coverage.

Here's what we know (do not read in case you want to be surprised while watching)

  • Uses a 'next-gen version of the creation engine', the engine used for Skyrim
  • Next-Gen console only:  PS4, XBONE, PC
  • Takes place in Boston
  • Player actually begins play before the bombs drop and rushes to Vault 111 as the bombs drop as part of the opening.  Awakens 200 years later as the sole survivor of the vault.
  • Unlike previous reports you can play as male or female.
  • Your character will be voice acted.
  • You will have a dog companion again.  Dog seems more central/core to the gameplay as opposed to being as optional as Dogmeat was.
  • First or third person gameplay of course, VATS is back too.
  • You will be able to scrap trash from the wasteland to build up your own settlements, including fortifying them to defend them from raiders.  This is an optional but pretty detailed looking.
  • Detailed crafting lets you build and customize weapons in great detail.  Sure you can find a Laser Rifle, but wouldn't you love to take it apart and optimize it to play the way you want it to?  I know I would.
  • You can also customize your own power armor.
  • Said power armor seems to have altered gameplay including a jetpack and other details.
  • Collectors "Pip-Boy" edition will include a replica Pipboy designed to fit a smartphone. 
  • Game will launch alongside a companion app that lets you control your in-game pip-boy with your smart phone.  Is again, optional.
  • EDIT: I forgot, launch date set for 11-10-2015

Reddit is claiming the launch date has been confirmed as November 10th of this year without actually citing a source that confirms it. Way to go Reddit.

That's because it's in the press conference and I forgot to write it.

Release date is in fact 11-10-2015, day after Kitty's birthday.  I'll probably get her the Pip-Boy edition for her birthday.

It's funny, I always hear discussion of Dogmeat from Fallout 3 and I never once ran into him. I know he's optional but the way I hear people talk about him it feels like if you don't run into him on one play through you should find him by next. Course I never actively sought him out either.

Oh yeah I've done 2 playthroughs of Fallout 3 and gained Dogmeat in either.  It is really easy to play through the game and never find him.  Kitty was actively looking for him (without looking it up) and didn't find him for hours.  I know others who found him on accident, thought he was a foe and tried to kill him.  Dogmeat was a big part of the game for some but no way required for Fallout 3.
