So Close Yet So Far
Its August 10, 2015, which means Fallout 4 is only three months away, it feels like the game was announced only a couple of months ago. Oh wait it was! I’m glad Bethesda is at it again with a new Fallout game (hopefully they have a new Skyrim cooking). The last Fallout game I played was Fallout 3, it was enjoyable it had its faults. Open world games with endless options can leave players feeling lost, it helps to have an engaging story. If there’s too much to do, you get open world paralysis! Causes – too many options and side quest to complete yeah, I made that up. Okay let’s get on to the meat of the article
A lot of things, for starter the Creation Engine is new and improved with new features that will enhance the visuals of the game and address the long loading time. There is a new Crit Meter, as you kill monsters your Crit Meter fills up and when it’s full, your attacks get a strength boost and a cool animation like a monsters exploding heads, similar to the old V.A.T.S critical shots. Speaking of V.A.T.S there’s been changes made here too, when using V.A.T.S your character will not be in slow motion (slowdown time) like in Fallout 3, this will make the game faster, forcing you to act quickly. There are new changes to the weapon system, you can now customize your weapon adding scopes, lazors and other cool attachments.
Monsters can lose body parts for example, when you shoot a Ghouls limbs off they will still continue to chase you, losing limbs will change their move set, making the game more dynamic. radiation will play a new role in Fallout, it will act as a sickness, it will decrease your maximum health bar till you can get some medicine, reminds me of demon souls when you were in hollow form. There is now a hotkey for grenades so you can blast a deathclaw and throw a grenade at a raider without having to change weapons. Power armor is back not just for you but for raiders as well, be prepared for the rockets they’ll launch at you. With the new power armor you can FLY! I’m excited for this feature.
There will be no modding tools till early 2016, so If you’re a PC gamer that loves mods you’re going to have to wait till next year. Well, that’s all I have for now, with the game around the corner I’m sure there will be more information coming out way soon Fallout 4 will release November 10, 2015 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
