Saw this on the Nexus forums:

-VA PCs: Confirmed, whether this will be an issue will probably depend upon wether you have subtitle options like in past FO games where dialogue and subtitles match. Then a mod that disables the VA probably shouldn't be an issue.

- Male only character creation: Debunked. You can choose.

- No character customization: Debunked. You get a dynamic system that works without sliders. Footage didn't show whether there are different body types but there may be. Personal note: I do like the prospect of making characters that don't require 20 mods to look human.

- PA customization: Confirmed. You can individualize the whole thing. And there's a layered armor system now.

- Extended Weapon customization: Confirmed. You can pretty much customize weapons to the degree that you can change weapon type.

- Vehicles/Vertibirds: Confirmed. Footage didn't show whether you can fly a vertibird yourself but you can get into them (and apparently call them via flare).

- PC awakens from a cryogenic sleep chamber: Still up in the air, seems likely though as it's indicated that the PC has been gone for 2 centuries.

- You get to play pre-War: Confirmed. At least to the degree that you can play bits of pre-war for the intro.

Id tech engine: Debunked. It's a modified version of the Creation Engine. Personal Note: From the looks of it, I'd wager it's 64 bit. With everything that's going and the expo looking like a console version I'd say it kinda has to be.
While this is nothing definitive I'd say this a clear hint in the direction that mods for FO4 won't be an issue.

Other notable things:
1. The option to build and customize your own settlements (and send/lead carvans between them)
2. More dynamic VATS, it looks a bit to me like a combo of VATS and bullet time.
3. More dynamic pipboy, animated icons, pipboy game/recording holotapes and the likes.
4. Release date is 10th of November so everyone who's been assuming it'd come this year was right (honestly doesn't seem surprising, with all the momentum building up it would've been stupid to announce it this early with another year or more of wait)


The E3 footage:


Looks awesome! I'm very glad the male-only, predefined character rumors were false. In fact, character creation is now very similar to Sims 4 where you push and pull on the character's face. Notice there's also a Body category implying the possibility of being able to modify body shape, though that hasn't been shown in any vids that I've found yet. Looks like the protagonist starts as one member of a committed/married couple, and you'll be able to customize the face of both of them. Character creation appears to have a Sex setting that implies same-sex couples are possible.

Just a quick head's up:

F4 announced at E3, to be released in November. Some vids (taken from PCGAMER):









Me... I didn't like F3, it felt like pretty though shallow game. F:NV offered much deeper gameplay and story, and Stalker was imo 42673 times better when it came to the atmosphere. Still... I'm mildly interested in F4. Will wait and see if it's worth the time.

EDIT: Since the game is using the same engine as Skyrim (which is the same one used in Fallout 3, Oblivion and even Morrowind) I do believe we will be able to mod the poo out of this game. ALL HAIL THE PC!

EDIT: NINJA'D (by 7 minutes! I'm a slow writer...)

I loved Fallout 3. New Vegas was just okay... granted, there were some improvements, but I liked the setting in fallout 3 better.

I think Fallout 4 is going to be amazing. I haven't been this excited for a game since the Sims 2 Apartment life LOL

I haven't played fallout since the first game, which was too hard for me so I gave up. But their presentation was fantastic. I was cheering with the crowd and I aint even buying the game. A free app for your phones, with little microtransactions. I don't have a iphone, but i want that for me android. Even want the stupid dolls, even though I don't play with dolls and got no where to put them.

It was fantastic to feel a level of excitement about gaming again, even though it's not something I'm gonna buy or play. I could feel the love coming off the screen.

EA at E3 however, was........ not exciting.

Oh wow, thanks for posting the vids. This game looks fantastic and I'm relieved (but not terribly surprised) that we can play as a woman. Having a voiced over character should be interesting and I love that the game starts out in the shiny pre-war world.

I'm hoping the plot will be as good as New Vegas. Fallout 3 was fun, but the plot and characters were lacking in comparison to the others. It looks like they put a good deal of emphasis on the story this time around, which I really like. I can't wait to play this game, lol.

They ripped off Real Time Settler which was a mod for FO3.

Lot of folks noted they seem to have taken what was the most popular mods and have been incorporating them into the games as time has gone along. Personally if I was the folks who made the RTS mod, I'd be feeling good that they decided to make something similar into the game.

@Shoosh Malooka I don't know about you but every since FO3 came out I was asking for a building mod and then about 3 years later Real Time Settler came out but to me the settlers were all wrong and the buildings were off and I could never get into it.

With FO4 having it built in and it looks great so far the makers of RTS should be happy that they don't need to do all that work again and make mods to support the ingame building system.

Man, why is Nov. 10 taken so long to get here?

Sooooo - Fallout. Coming out soon and I'm thinking of buying - maybe.

Never played any of the previous versions. Advice? Is the combat difficult? Can you avoid it? Can you be sneaky? Who's buying it? How like Oblivion/Skyrim is it? I liked Skyrim ... kind of. I found it ultimately unengaging though I know people love it. Maybe just not my type of game.

But that dog in the trailer. He's getting to me.

Plus building settlements and trading is appealing to the world builder in me.

Min requirements are no problem for my pc, but it is nowhere near recommended specs. So whatever the reviews will say, I will probably wait untill a sale or a next pc upgrade before I buy it. And I suspect the game will needs some decent patches after launch anyway for optimisation

Not sure about FO4, but the previous versions the combat isn't difficult. You can engage in real-time combat like Oblivion/Skyrim, or you can use VATS which pauses time and lets you queue up different combat actions and target areas on the victim. Then once you're done, it plays out in cinematic slow-motion in 3rd person view. It takes much less skill (at least hand/coordination-wise) to use VATS, but allows you to be more strategic and I loved the cinematic action sequence. I'd often take screenshots during the VATS cinematic sequence just because I thought it looked cool. For me, it never got old, and I used VATS far more often than real-time combat.

You can be sneaky and avoid combat (or run away from it) about as well as you can in Skyrim.

I loved the feel of the Fallout games, the 1950s post-apocalyptic style and the 1940s music (in FO3), and the characters are a lot more quirky, so I actually did prefer it over Skyrim.

Yes, I've been reading about VATs and it sounds interesting to me. It's not that I lack eye-hand coordination (I trained as a concert pianist), it's more that I find a lot of combat, well, boring. I like Mass Effect (a lot) and Dragon Age and The Witcher but increasingly I find I'm less and less interested in the combat parts - I'm generally not too invested in character builds and customising kit. I realise I miss a lot of content in the games that way but it just doesn't excite me. I'm more interested in stories. I don't play the story modes though - I'm usually on the hardcore setting. I find flattening the opposition too unbelieveable too and it disrupts immersion. So being sneaky and progressing in other ways is good for me (I liked Dishonored for this). I can see that using VATs might draw me in as it gives me something to think about setting stuff up.

Yes, now this is a strong plus for the game in my eyes - it looks great and intriguing (the way Bioshock did when I first encountered it) and it's a definite plus the characters were attractive to you (plus the dog, y'know). I don't know about Skyrim - I just found it hard to care. Mind you, I found it hard to care about DAI too. Maybe I've played too many fantasy setting stories.

Thanks for the feedback
