There are myriad reasons why a game like Fallout 4 is so good, from its sheer depth to its flexibility. That latter point ties into modding, which Bethesda is happy to not just let fans dive into, but is proud to support. As one reddit user has discovered, though, there is one major caveat to be aware of if you want to use FO4 mods: no achievements. In his post, reddit user HakfDuckHalfMan notes that games in FO4 that have enabled mods are treated as completely separate from ordinary ones. An example given: If your username is John, the next time you save a game with a mod enabled, a "John [Modded]"... Read more...
Nearly a month ago, Bethesda brought us news of three DLC packs in store for its hugely popular Fallout 4. The first of those three packs, Automatron, is now set to launch on March 22nd and will be filled with plenty of mechanized, murderous robot mayhem. Bethesda describe Automatron, which retails for $9.99, writing: The mysterious Mechanist has unleashed a horde of evil robots into the Commonwealth, including the devious Robobrain. Hunt them down and harvest their parts to build and mod your own custom robot companions. Choose from hundreds of mods; mixing limbs, armor, abilities, and weapons... Read more...
It could be said that Bethesda is like the "Apple" of the gaming world - anything it releases is almost guaranteed to sell well. That proved true with the company's latest masterpiece, Fallout 4, which managed to sell an impressive 12 million copies (for $750 million in revenue) in its first few days. With Fallout's continued success, there's little doubt that we'll see a Fallout 5. Similarly, Bethesda tells us that Fallout Shelter will not be the last mobile game it puts out, either. At this week's DICE Summit, Bethesda's Director Todd Howard said, "We're gonna do more," and admitted that the... Read more...
In a series of tweets, Fallout 4 developer Bethesda has teased some of the game's upcoming content, while giving fans little to go on (as usual). When asked about an update regarding the release of Creation Kit, Pete Hines, Bethesda PR, said, "We're pretty close to divulging details." We're not given a timeframe, but are told that it "Won't be much longer." The response to the DLC question is much the same: "We're not far off." We’re also doing a complete overhaul of Fallout 4 Survival mode. Food, sleep, diseases, danger and more. Stay tuned. — BethesdaGameStudios (@BethesdaStudios) February 11,... Read more...
There have been so many quality games to come out this year that it's hard to tell if Bethesda's latest epic, Fallout 4, will come out on top, but it sure has a good chance to. And that's despite the fact that as with any Bethesda title at launch, Fallout 4 can prove ridiculously buggy at times. As you'd expect, Bethesda is hard at work on getting these bugs squashed, but it definitely takes time. While some bugs are minor things we'd expect with any new game launch, some in Fallout 4 are downright maddening. A good example of one has been discussed at reddit as well as the game's official forums.... Read more...
Fallout 4 is finally here. Channeling its best 50's era paranoia and the allure of a warm, radiation-free bomb shelter, Bethesda’s newest RPG tells us doomsday prepping and cryogenics actually work—yay! Well, that is until they malfunction and you’re thrust topside to an irradiated, post-apocalyptic wasteland filled with vile mutated everything, all gunning and clawing for you.The world of Fallout 4 is a hostile place, much like Fallout New Vegas and Fallout 3 before it, though we’re glad to be back on the game world's radioactive soil, becuase it has been nearly a decade since the latter launched....

You didn’t think that we’d forgotten about Fallout 4 already, did you? Of course not! The game was released earlier this week to great fanfare, but today we talking about wicked gameplay in Fallout 4’s digital wasteland — instead, some rather inventive folks sought out to recreate one of the game’s most terrifying weapons. And shockingly, they succeeded with absolutely amazing results. Caleb Kraft from the Make Magazine Web series Controlled Chasos enlisted the help of Platinumfungi to build a real life “shishkebab,” which is in essence a flaming sword. I mean, who wouldn’t love to slice and... Read more...
Where major video game releases are concerned, it's not usually too hard for the mega-fan to be able to find cool merchandise on the side to help complement the game. We're talking figurines, books, posters, and what-have-you. Or, in the case of the ultra-hyped Fallout 4, it could have beer! Oh, this one speaks to us. "Fallout Beer" is the result of a partnership between Bethesda and Carlsberg UK, and is inspired by both the series itself, and in particular Vault-Tec Industries. It's a pilsner, which is sure to go down smoothly during a marathon gaming session, and at 4% ABV, it's not likely to... Read more...
With Fallout 4 set to be released in two months, fans are sure to be wondering about what kind of extra content will surround the game. Fortunately, Bethesda has finally come forward with that information, and overall, none of it comes as much of a surprise. First and foremost, Fallout 4 is going to follow in the footsteps of most AAA games and offer a season pass, for the standard fare price of $30. Bethesda hasn't announced what this pass will entail, but it believes that when all said and done, it will feel like a $40+ value. DLC aside, the company is also anxious to get on creating post-launch... Read more...
Just over month ago, Bethesda quenched the appetites of longtime Fallout fanatics with gameplay footage of Fallout 4. But that wasn’t all that Bethesda had in store for fans, it also released Fallout Shelter, a mobile app which lets you take charge of your own underground nuclear shelter. At the time, the Fallout Shelter was only made available for iOS users, but that will change come August 13th. On that date Bethesda will make the game available to Android users as well. When the Android version lands, it will also bring with it some fresh updates that include a robot companion named Mr. Handy.... Read more...
Leave it to Bethesda to knock it out of the park with collector’s editions for its games. If your recall, the company kicked off Fallout 4 pre-orders with the Pip-Boy edition which included a wearable Pip-Boy that hooks up with your smartphone, a capsule case, a Robco Industries stand, and of course a copy of the game (among other things). Priced at a relatively low (for a collector’s edition) $119, the Pip-Boy Edition sold out quickly. And as Bethesda made it clear in late June, it won’t be restocked, meaning that if you didn’t get your hands on a pre-order, you’ll have to duke it out on eBay... Read more...
The Fallout 4 hype has hit epic levels in the past few weeks, and Bethesda simply knocked it out of the park last night by delivering some fresh details on the game along with a boatload of footage from the upcoming game. For starters, Bethesda has confirmed that Fallout 4 will launch November 10 on the two leading current generation gaming consoles (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) as well as the PC on November 10, so mark your calendars. As for the game itself, Fallout 4 has been baking in the oven since the launch of Fallout 3 back in 2009. Six years is a damn long time to develop a new game, and... Read more...
There are gamers, and then there are gamers who come to have such vast knowledge of their favorite games, it puts the rest of us in awe. As far as series go, there are not too many quite like Fallout. It has such a massive, loyal fanbase, that you could spend many days reading up on every little aspect of each game and their vast worlds. Fallout 4, announced last week, will be no different. What's not commonly seen is such in-depth analysis of a game being done before its launch - much less a single week after the announcement. But we're seeing that now with Fallout 4, as some rabid fans of the... Read more...
Here we go folks; buckle up and enjoy the ride! Bethesda has posted the first trailer for Fallout 4, which as we previously told you will be set in an alternate timeline Boston. If the screenshots and images of the retail box images were enough to raise your pulse, the trailer below is likely to give Fallout fans heart palpitations: For now, we’ll just have the trailer to hold us over until Bethesda’s “E3 Showcase” which will take place on Sunday, June 14 at 7PM PST (it will be streamed live via YouTube and Twitch)....
