Fallout 4 Certainly Was Announced Today

Capture

Yesterday’s Fallout teaser didn’t end in disappointment, as Bethesda has announced Fallout 4 with a (mostly) cinematic trailer.

The three-minute trailer opens much like Fallout 3 did, as a ’50s song plays and the camera pans from a television standby screen to reveal a destroyed home. A German Shepherd that resembles Dogmeat from previous Fallout games enters the home, and the rest of the trailer follows the dog as the destroyed landscape flashes back to events before the war.

You can watch the whole thing above, but it looks like the rumors about the game taking place in Boston are true, if the historical landmarks are anything to go by. Portions of the trailer also seem to be in-engine.

Notably, the trailer ends with the dog meeting with a former Vault resident that will most likely serve as the player character, and the latter talks. It’s still unclear if the player character will be fully voiced in the game proper.

Fallout 4 is yet to receive a release date, but it will be on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
