Perhaps you know this already, but let’s say it one more time just in case: In Fallout 4, Dogmeat cannot die. Which is great news for all those players who would reload a previous save anytime their cherished canine met an untimely demise in Fallout 3. Dogmeat is just one of around a dozen companions in Fallout 4, including Mister Handy, Piper and Preston Garvey. (And for those in the mood for love, you can romance any human companion – regardless of gender.) Get a quick look at Dogmeat in action in our video interview with Game Director Todd Howard.
