PR agency leaks Fallout 4 information
A PR and marketing agency may of just “accidentally” leaked some key information about Bethesda’s next project, Fallout 4. According to the agency the game will be a direct followup to Fallout 3 and will not follow on from Bethesda’s last entry in the Fallout Franchise, Fallout New Vegas.
Some information was also announced about the potential setting of the game. It will apparently take place in and around the city of Boston, some of the factions that featured in Fallout 3 will also apparently return although in a lesser capacity, as the new factions will take over the main role of secondary protagonists. The games central story will apparently revolve largely around androids being used as slave labor in order to farm food for the remaining human population.
Sadly the popular species of Ghouls and Super Mutants won’t return if we are to go by this released information. Apparently, Bethesda are keen to create a host of all new never before seen species, in order to this they have been reportedly studying Lovecraftian fiction, seen as Boston is set in and around “Lovecraft Country”.
Regarding gameplay mechanics, Bethesda don’t want to reinvent the leveling up system for Fallout 4 and make it more like Skyrim. This is because Fallout 3 and Oblivion were criticized for being “too similar”. Apparently certain skills will level up when you perform specific and unique tasks instead.
What do you think of all this information? Does it sound a little too good to be true? Or could this actually be the real thing? It’s worth bearing in mind that Fallout 4 rumors and teasers having been surfing around the internet ever since Fallout 3 came out, with the majority of them being fake as well. But with the next generation of gaming being so close it does seem that this time we could be looking at the real deal. But until it’s otherwise confirmed by Bethesda it’s best to take this news with a pinch of salt.
One last thing, there was a rumored release date included as well, we could be seeing Fallout 4 in the “spring of 2014″ although that sounds suspiciously too soon to us. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below.
