By now you’ve probably heard of Fallout: New Vegas.
Now Bethesda, which developed the popular series, is bringing back the series with Fallout 4.
The announcement comes via Bethesda’s Steam page, but it’s worth taking a look.
First of all, Fallout 4 looks fantastic.
Fallout 4’s setting and visuals are simply breathtaking.
The story is gripping, the dialogue is clear, and the gameplay is smooth.
The game looks and feels fantastic.
The world is lush, lush and colorful.
This isn’t just a game about killing baddies.
This is a world of love and joy and adventure, filled with great people, and a deep sense of community.
The graphics are stunning.
The sound design is sublime.
The combat system is superb.
The dialogue is beautiful.
The modding options are extensive.
It’s a world that is simply a blast to play.
Bethesda has created a world in Fallout 4 that’s both epic and incredibly simple.
You may have heard that Fallout 4 will support cross-platform play.
It will also support Steam Workshop.
That means you can download and play your saves and mods from your computer, then upload them to your PS4, Xbox One, or PC.
That’s the end of DRM for you, right?
Well, there’s a few more steps to cross-play.
First, you need to go through a “Steam Workshop installation” and select “Allow” on the menu.
Second, the “Fallout 4” name on your console will now match that of your PC.
You can download the game and play it on any platform.
It’ll work on your PS3, PS4 or PC if you’ve bought Fallout 3 or Fallout: The Pre-Sequel, as well as any other platform that supports cross-compatibility.
You can also cross-save between your consoles and PCs.
There’s a way to do this in the game’s settings menu.
Select “Save to PS4” and save your game there.
You’ll need to download the patch to enable it, and you’ll need the “Steam version” of Fallout 3 to play it.
The patch is currently in the works and will be available to download later this week.
It also includes the ability to download and install mods on your PC from Steam Workshop, and it supports crossplatform play, too.
That’s it for Fallout 4, right now.
It looks amazing and has the most expansive world I’ve ever played in a video game.
The gameplay is also smooth and addictive, and Bethesda has taken every advantage of cross-network play and mods to create a fantastic experience.
Fallout: 4 is out on October 17.
