Fallout 4 Announcement Trailer
It seems like everyone is drinking the Kool Aid for Fallout 4 right now and who can blame them – the nuclear flash in the trailer was pretty bright afterall. First things first though – we have a release date of November 2015, still no specific day but such is the nature of nuclear apocalypse.
Just like the other modern Fallout trailers this one starts with a close-up on a piece of quasi-50's technology, this time a television and song that's eerily similar to the ones we've heard previously as well as other familiar Fallout sights like Mr Gutsy and other familiar robots, ghouls. Official wordy-type information is thin on the ground but we can see a number of things in the trailer:
- Vault 111: We see the wooded entrance to Vault 111, one of the massive underground nuclear war survival communities that've appeared in every Fallout game to date. Curiously there's a Brotherhood Of Steel soldier guarding the entrance as people are entering.
- Mutated wilflife: We see a lone Deathclaw slinking across the evening landscape. The silhouette of a possible Mirelurk and a Brahmin loaded with supplies.
- Dog companion: The trailer shows a dog, which is later identified as a vault dweller's companion when he says “Let's go pal.” at the end. Hilariously the texture work stretches and distorts as the dog moves around – watch the back leg as it checks out the bowl.
- Brotherhood Of Steel Armour: A partially constructed set of BoS armour can be seen in a roadside garage along with a minigun under a tarp.
- A city: Rumour has it that Vault 111 is situated in Boston. Between the shots of the wildlife we get to see a city skyline with tall buildings (though it's hard to tell how high they actually are), a beach, a galleon-like ship beached atop a huge building and what looks like the golden roof of a mosque which could all point towards Boston. A brief flash of lightning also seems to reveal a statue of Paul Revere (or at least very close to the real one) in Boston. Another small sign on a building says “Swatters eastern” which would also seem to point towards an east-coast city.
We also see a bunch of potentially large but as yet unexplained details such as a giant airship flying over the rooftops of a city, and twin-rotor helicopters. It looks like the Brotherhood Of Steel will be playing a big part in this new entry in the series.
We'll have more details for you as they become available, stay tuned.
