Fallout 4 Announced for PC, PS4, Xbox One

Fallout4

Is your body ready for more Fallout? Because my body sure is ready for more Fallout. It’s only been seven years since Fallout 3 (and five years since New Vegas, but that was made by Obsidian). Thanks for taking your sweet ass time, Bethesda Game Studios!

Leading into E3 2015 in a couple weeks, Bethesda Softworks has pulled back the post-apocalyptic curtain on Fallout 4 with a three minute reveal trailer confirming previous rumors that the game’s open world setting will in fact be modeled after Boston. That’s like wicked awesome.

Oh, and the game has a dog in it. So I guess it’s only a matter of time before Fallout Dog turns into a meme like Call of Duty Dog. (If it hasn’t happened already.)

Also confirmed today are the platforms. No surprise–Fallout 4 is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. When will it be out? We don’t know yet. Actually, there’s a lot we don’t know yet.

Thankfully, more information is right around the corner, as Fallout 4 will make its world premiere during Bethesda’s E3 Showcase at 7pm PST on June 14th, live from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, or live-streamed globally via Twitch and YouTube.

You’ve surely seen it by now, but the official trailer is embedded above just in case you missed it or are down for a repeat viewing. Down below are the first screenshots. Well, okay, hi-res stills Bethesda captured from the trailer. But the trailer is said to be created entirely in-game, so these are no bullshots. Some of them are prime desktop wallpaper material if nothing else.
