Fallout 4 was shown off extensively last night during the Bethesda Conference. During it we got a ton of new info and were treated to a lot of gameplay. Check out the gameplay above.
There’s improved crafting mechanics that allow you to modify 50 base weapons into over 700 combinations based out of random junk you find in the world.
Character designing doesn’t use sliders anymore but rather allows you to directly modify your characters by touching and molding their features to your liking. Furthermore, a baby is generated based on how you modify your start husband and wife.
There’s a new settlement creation system that allows you to create small towns. You can have vendors and setup defenses as well. As you build, NPC’s will move into the settlement. Furthermore, you can build several settlements throughout the game. This settlement creation system is completely optional.
They’re also making a Pip-Boy app for mobile devices that will allow you to manage your stats and play retro-style mini-games. Furthermore, they’re also coming out with a real-life Pip-Boy that will come with the Fallout 4 Collector’s Edition. In it, they’ll include the app that will connect with your game wirelessly as well.
Lastly, they also announced and launched a new mobile game based on the Fallout universe called Fallout Shelter. In it, you play as the overseer and creator of a Vault. It’s inspired by a number of other games such as XCOM, Sim City, and FTL. It’s free to play, doesn’t require an online connection, isn’t ridden with micro-transactions (though there are some in it), and it’s available right now.
Oh my goodness! I can’t believe what I just heard! Bethesda just announced that player mods that are made on the PC version of the game will be playable on the Xbox One version.
