Fallout 4 was, finally, revealed last week, silencing almost a decade’s worth of anticipation and yearning for a follow up from the internet. The game’s reveal was met with the kind of hype and excitement that you would expect, but, as can almost be expected at this point, also a lot of whining about how it looks. In this case, people kept going on and on and on about how the game looked like a glorified PS3 and Xbox 360 game- and sure, I can agree that from a technical standpoint, it’s nothing impressive.
What I cannot agree with is the non ironic hyperbole expressed by so many to the effect of Fallout 4 looking about as good as an uprezzed Fallout 3, when that is objectively false. And so, especially for those people, this video that compares the graphics of Fallout 3 and 4 should come as a reality check. For others, well, they will just appreciate the graphics even more, I guess.
Fallout 4 was announced last week for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We don’t have a release date yet, though popular speculation pegs it at October of this year. Expect official details at E3, starting this Sunday. Stay tuned.
