As expected, Bethesda showed off the first gameplay demo for Fallout 4 after officially announcing the game with the first trailer earlier this month.
The gameplay demo shows how the game begins, including how character customization will work and the events that unfold that set your story up, before also sharing a collection of new peeks at other parts of the game. They also showed other gameplay previews showcasing a few surprises. One is your Pip-Boy, which this time around lets you find and listen to audio tapes and even find and play minigames that resemble classics like Donkey Kong. The next is the massive amount of customization there is with your weapons and armor. Finally, an exciting feature that will basically allow you break things down, collect the parts, and use them to build what you need in certain areas including a home that can begin a settlement and defenses to use against any intruding enemies.
Lastly, and equally exciting, it was revealed that the game will be released this year on November 10th! This seems insane seeing what it looks like and knowing how big it is, but game director Todd Howard shared that they actually started designing this after Fallout 3 was released and not right after The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was released as most assumed they did.
You can see all of the apocalyptic goodness below.
