In case you hadn’t heard, the official trailer for Fallout 4 has dropped yesterday. If you’ve missed it, you can check it out below. Bask in its wondrous glory, like the power of the atom.
Like the original Fallout 3, the introduction is done by The Ink Spots. This time, instead of “I Don’t Want To Set The World On Fire”, the song is “All Over But The Crying”. The first track was played during the intro on a Radiation King radio, but this time we’ve moved to the same brand, but a television set.
Like any lover of the Fallout games, I just had to dig deeper into the scenes from the video – because, well, what’s a gamer chick not to love about the anticipation of a new game to sink her teeth into?
The Opening Scene
In full view, we see a house that has been chewed up and spit out by the effects of the radiation. In the Capital Wasteland, Fallout 3 was known for these dilapidated, once-inhabited homes and that hasn’t changed with the coming of the new game.
The game cycles between the old and the new in its intro and we’re wondering if some of the game play actually takes place before the bombs fell in 2077. We see a pristine home with a Mister Handy holding a box of Sugar Bombs. Was this how life really was before Vault-Tec came into the picture?
Straight back to reality and the present, we see a dog! Yay, this game has a dog like the Capital Wasteland’s Dogmeat. The Lone Wanderer will be able to walk the path of good, neutrality or evil (hopefully) with man’s best friend. What’s not to love except for the fact that there isn’t any food left for this poor guy. Hopefully he’s just as skilled at finding food, weapons and chems just like our faithful companion from the previous game.
Before The Nukes
It looks like before the bombs fell over the nation, the military (the enclave?) worked with the Brotherhood Of Steel in order to get people into the vaults. From the advertisement, it appears that families were herded in as preparation for the nuclear attacks.
Hello and welcome to your new home, Vault 111! As we can assume from previous games, this is where the magic happens with regard to player setup and character traits. Will you have to take another GOAT? Perhaps the player can actually be the Overseer this time around?
It was leaked previously, but the location for Fallout 4 is most undeniably Boston, Massachusetts, or what’s left of it. Pictured above is the Bunker Hill Monument in case you thought the location was elsewhere. What do we know of what went on in Boston? Well, that is said to be the location of the Commonwealth and the location of the mysterious Institute. From Fallout 3, we have learned that the Commonwealth had [...]
