As expected, Bethesda’s entire E3 press conference led up to the Fallout 4 gameplay demo right at the very end. It was a very exhaustive and extensive gameplay demo, and it showed us that, in a first for the series, the game will begin before the launch of the nuclear bomb, which ties into the reveal trailer that we were shown off recently, which alternated between the world pre Fallout and the world post Fallout.
We were also shown a new, highly powerful, and flexible character creation system, which has you just move a cursor to any part of your character’s face, and change it to your liking. Todd Howard confirmed that the game will let you play as a female as well as a male, contrary to recent rumors that claimed the character would only be male. Both characters were also voiced.
They also confirmed that the game is running on a next generation version of the Creation Engine, featuring full physical rendering, and volumetric lighting.
Stay tuned, and we’ll have more information for you shortly.
