Bethesda’s E3 showcase went down Sunday night, and the headliner of the event was, of course, Fallout 4.

Fallout 4 was already announced last week, so the game itself wasn’t a surprise. But the main question most gamers have been asking for years now finally got answered: When is the damn game coming out already? The answer: November 10, 2015. PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One are the platforms, as we already knew.

That’s this year. Yeah buddy! That sure puts a pip in my boy, if you know what I mean.

Bethesda hasn’t posted standalone footage of the Fallout 4 walkthrough just yet, but if you missed it or want to re-watch it the full showcase is up on YouTube. The Fallout 4 presentation begins around an hour in.

But don’t go scurrying off into the internet Wasteland just yet. Below you’ll find an overview of key game features pulled from Bethesda’s E3 media kit, as well as a gallery with screenshots and concept art.

Freedom and Liberty!
Do whatever you want in a massive open world with hundreds of locations, characters, and quests. Join multiple factions vying for power or go it alone, the choices are all yours.

You’re S.P.E.C.I.A.L!
Be whoever you want with the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. character system. From a Power Armored soldier to the charismatic smooth talker, you can choose from hundreds of Perks and develop your own playstyle.

Super Deluxe Pixels!
An all-new next generation graphics and lighting engine brings to life the world of Fallout like never before. From the blasted forests of the Commonwealth to the ruins of Boston, every location is packed with dynamic detail.

Violence and V.A.T.S.!
Intense first or third person combat can also be slowed down with the new dynamic Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System (V.A.T.S) that lets you choose your attacks and enjoy cinematic carnage.

Collect and Build!
Collect, upgrade, and build thousands of items in the most advanced crafting system ever. Weapons, armor, chemicals, and food are just the beginning – you can even build and manage entire settlements.
