Fallout 4: What To Expect

WC: A recent tweet from the voice of the Capital Wasteland excited the gaming community. Erik Todd Dellums, better known as Three Dog, wrote, ‘To all my Fallout 3 and Three Dog fans: there may be more of the Dog coming! Fingers Crossed”. When asked to reveal more, he admitted that he had been given permission to release the teaser.

It raises all sorts of questions: is it a Fallout game or a film? It’s been two years since Fallout: New Vegas was released to mixed reviews from fans of the series. While the game was very well received by critics, few sequels have split fans as much as NV. Every comment section on a post with Fallout news always seems to include an argument about which game was better: Fallout 3 or New Vegas?

Both games were hugely popular and both had their positive points – F3 has a 93% rating on Metacritic for the 360 version, while NV received an 84% – but if the games could be blended together to form Fallout 4, both sets of fans should be happy. (Fallout 4, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

all im asking for is an interesting wasteland, rather than an empty one. i'd argue skyrim was still more of the same when it came to empty large areas of grass and miscellaneous trees. also character models and customization needs to be a lot more detailed for a next generation title. better towns, settlements and vaults. astly ive been curious about this, id tech's game RAGE was somewhat open world and looked graphically very good, id tech is apart of 2k games as well as bethesda. i wonder if there isnt some sort of way they cod license the id tech 5 engine or something for a new fallout title?

RAGE was open world (until you hit one of the numerous invisible walls) and, on PC, looked like crap. In my experience idtech failed to impress. The environment was nearly static and the textures looked like poo.

RAGE failed as a game because it was a tech demo, of which it failed at also.

In fairness to Fallout 3, it was how it was supposed to be..... a Wasteland!

I understand what you are saying about a lot of it looking the same, but then it is meant to be a bleak, endless wasteland left over from a nuclear apocalypse.

I personally liked the feel of an unwelcoming devastated wasteland as that is exactly what I expected. I do however agree that it needs some sort of variation in some places, although done in the right way... like perhaps a main central wasteland but with different areas off of it with varying degrees of devastation that are built to give that feeling of variety.

I definitely agree with the better character, town, settlement, vault models and customisation and would like to see a big improvement over Fallout 3.

One word, one number: Wasteland 2

Oh god I can't wait. Bethesda's writing, characters, and choice/consequence have always disappointed me. But the writers and designers behind wasteland 2 are like a dream team of talent.

Fallout is my number 1'favorite series and I agree there should be more to explore and I suggest the BoS and enclave to be one of the main people not ncr and legion I hated that about nv and should be able to choose sides like in nv and in f3 how you could get the tb-51 armor and in Nv you could get the remnants armor this one should have the tactics armor and should expeccily
have vehicles
