As you may already know, Fallout 4‘s release date was announced at Bethesda’s E3 press conference. You can expect the open world RPG to drop on November 10th, 2015. Yep, that’s right, this year. That is assuming it doesn’t get shoved back into 2016 as we near the holidays. Time will tell if that’s the case, but in the meantime you can click clack and swipe and wipe or whatever it is you do on iOS games with the Fallout 4 companion app, Fallout Shelter, which is out right now.
With the release date announcement also came a slew of details on what to expect in the game. Character creation will let you model a husband and wife couple, their appearance having an effect on how their child looks. You’ll only play as one of them, though. The game begins pre-apocalypse, but the bomb drops shortly after. You emerge from the vault 200 years later, meet a dog, and begin your journey across the wasteland.
Weapon and armor customization seems to be insanely deep, and it looks like there will be some base building and tower defense involved too. Oh and you can build dog houses. Fallout 4 looks pretty dang good.
