Lest we forget, Fallout 3 was one of the highest-rated and most popular games of the previous generation. Some of the game’s glory faded after the significantly less impressive Fallout: New Vegas but now that Bethesda Game Studios is back at the helm, role-playing aficionados everywhere are champing at the bit for Fallout 4 . In development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, the latest entry in the award-winning franchise is scheduled for a November release, and it’s bound to deliver a deeply immersive atmosphere and a ridiculous amount of gameplay. In fact, the current rumor is that it offers over 400 hours of entertainment!

Set in a post-apocalyptic America (Boston, to be specific), the new adventure will once again encourage exploration and experimentation. Open-world sandbox structures are the norm now but Fallout 4 might be even larger and more expansive than any game you’ve played to date (and yes, that might even include The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt ). The developers are going to lock in 1080p high-definition and 30 frames per second on both consoles but the title won’t be “limited in any way” on PC. Performance is important, as is the performance of an accomplished and effective voice actor: Ron Perlman is back as the narrator and he’s got the perfect voice for this type of game.

The depth of this production will be keenly felt with an in-depth crafting system, which players will use to construct different weapons and equipment, and in the bulding of various structures and settlements. Players will utilize in-game items to create defenses for their establishments, which will require electricity and other resources. In this way, the first-person action/RPG is actually a heady blend, one that consists of hefty strategy elements. Between crafting, building and modding (the latter feature is confirmed for Xbox One and PC, and it will come to PS4 provided Sony approves it), we’ll spend a fair amount of time planning and collecting. Obviously, it’s not all about combat.
