The countdown clock on the Fallout 4 website has officially ended, revealing the official announcement of the Fallout 4 game, with a trailer, heading to PC, Xbox One and PS4 later this year.

Bethesda are keeping information very very close to their chest with no official information released on story-line, how Fallout 4 fits into the Fallout timeline or customization options, though that’s not to say there’s no information floating around the web.  Eleven months ago, a disgruntled, former Bethesda employee (who was fired for dishing out confidential game information) took to reddit to spill all the beans about having played the game and what users can expect.

In Fallout 4, you are in Boston, and it takes place in the year 2287, exactly 10 years after Fallout 3. In Fallout 4, mixing things up, we are making the game more “Story Based” and the player character will finally talk, and narrate his story line” – reddit user SandraReed begins.  “At the beginning of the game, you create your character (You can only be a male in the main story), and afterward, you start the game with a blast. After the blast, you awake to see the building you are standing inside blown apart and your wife, Lydia, dead. Robots and Androids are storming the place, killing and kidnapping the people inside. You, known as “The Officer”, must escape and get revenge.”

Other notable claims include the map of Fallout 4 being three times the size of that in Skyrim, Fallout 4 takes place in Boston, you can import your Fallout 3 data and that could have an impact on the story depending on your previous choices and 5 DLC expansion packs have been scheduled.

Obviously, all this information is speculation until Bethesda play their hand at E3 next week, and here’s hoping the company haven’t taken a step backwards by removing the ability to play as a female character (SandraReed does note female character can be played…once you have finished the main story line).  Users like myself who have followed and played the game from dot one as a female character may feel a bit hard done by that they won’t be able to continue on.

What are your thoughts about the trailer and the revelations released by SandraReed on Reddit?

Bethesda is Giving us Fallout 4 Anticipations.

                                                                      Fallout 4 is coming!

As a massive fan of Bethesda’s Fallout game series, a little part of me geeked out when it was announced that they would be holding a conference at the mega E3 gaming expo later this month – the first time they have ever appeared at the event.  Could they be actually announcing a followup to the very awesome Fallout New Vegas released back in 2010?

Judging by this website it seems that not only is the news true, but that Bethesda could in fact be announcing the game earlier than the June 14th E3 expo and to quash any fears of the website being fake, Bethesda sent out the following tweet:

Set in an alternate reality where a failed Chinese invasion of America resulted in thermonuclear war, the Fallout series puts you as a custom player tasked with navigating a massive wasteland, rebuilding civilization in some form in the wake of the apocalypse. Fallout 3 was set in the Washington DC area, New Vegas in a Vegas like setting, while previous games have taken place on the West Coast of the US.

Can’t wait to see just what is revealed in 14 hours time!
