FO4 is launched most places now, (except Japan?). Ending updates to this thread.
Looks like Beth has released an official Fallout 4 trailer. World has gone to the dogs, one car has the brotherhood icon painted on - just before we see an 'inert' brotherhood in full battle armor ... is s/he really inert, or just watching?
http://bethsoft.com/en-us/news more news June 14 at 7PM EST from their E3 conference. Use twitch.
Trailer at LA Times: http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/herocomplex/la-et-hc-bethesda-confirms-fallout-4-in-development-20150603-story.html
Doesn't seem like this is another 'fake' trailer.
I'm excited... your thoughts, hopes, etc?
Its all Over, 'cept for the Crying - Inkspots
28 July 2015:
No additional 'pip boy' collectors editions will be produced. - Beth http://hothardware.com/news/bethesda-cant-produce-more-fallout-4-pip-boy-editions-despite-fan-outcry
New repair system in FO4: http://www.pcgamer.com/fallout-4-might-have-a-new-repair-system-but-bethesda-isnt-ready-to-talk-about-it/
Companions and Romance options: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2015/07/24/new-fallout-4-details-emerge-from-quakecon.aspx
Also, based on posters / in game artwork, their *maybe* combat in the Sea of Tranquility. That's on Terra's moon... space travel? ( I will update this entry as solid info becomes available.)
September 1-2, 2015 -Three new articles:
1) FO4 won't be as bleak as FO3, society has already commenced rebuilding. Beth says the protagonist once lived in the pre holocaust world, so themes of emotional loss will be explored. http://www.inquisitr.com/2385612/fallout-4-wont-be-as-bleak-as-previous-installments-of-the-series/
2) Beth told GameSpot that the PC specs will be released about a month before FO4 launches.
3) Beth is releasing a line of FO4 themed action figures:
System specs Recommended Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required) Intel Core i7 4790 3.6 GHz/AMD FX-9590 4.7 GHz or equivalent 8 GB RAM 30 GB free HDD space NVIDIA GTX 780 3GB/AMD Radeon R9 290X 4GB or equivalent
I saw and heard all that. Note my comment about 'misdirection.' Remember the three prophecies the witches make to McBeth? (paraphrase from memory) McBeth: 'No man of woman born can kill me.' McDuff's retort: ' was from my mother's womb untimely ripped.' Truth wrapped up in misdirection. I'm guilty of over-thinking... me thinks
Heh, perhaps, perhaps not. I just minutes ago finished restarting FO3 and the parts that jump out are about the mother, life, and the passage from revelation. You could be on to something.
This one is tricksy, since unless a demo shows clearly that it is running on a console it is probably running on a PC (and a very powerful one at that). I don't think it is common any more to run demos on a dev kit (huge risk and first parties put in the contract that dev kits will never leave the dev's (secure) workplace).
There was a fair bit of deception in the presentation.
You could, however, built a PC that is roughly equivalent, or even more powerful than, one of the newer consoles. A quad core processor and 8 gb RAM should beat the console slightly (and also requires a 64 bit OS). The graphics card (probably the best component on a console) is where I'd have to guess and say at least a GeForce 450 or rough equivalent (but better would be better).
Hey RavenX, may I ask, what mods you run with FO3. Are you trying any of the newer ones, released in last year or two? I'm adding DC metro and the companion mod 'ties that bind.' I have never shroomed Megaton - maybe I will this time?
I'd like to know as well. Your enthusiasm must be contagious, since I'm reinstalling FO3. I don't think I've played it modded yet, so there should still be much fun to be had this time around.
I watched the FO4 presentation a second time and am pretty excited for that too. There was a bunch of mechanics stuff that I'm curious about now (like how skills and perks will work, and getting xp from crafting).
@happybjorn I use fellout (weather), DC interiors, Marts Monster Mod, realistic lighting, darnified UI, and this them new one, ties that bind (sister from vault 101 gets caught by slavers - must rescue. Past play thru (one with the wanderer installed + world of pain); another (all the crew zeta add ons + its major quest line -the russia trip was awesome...). This time, (DC interiors, MMM and ties that bind).
I haven't looked into any mods for FO3 actually. I have the GotY edition but I bought it on disk before it was tied to Steam so I don't have the workshop for it. I don't like mods that make things OP or unbalance gameplay and I don't really like taking a chance introducing bugs to games as long as Fallout. Sometimes I install nudity patches, you know, for extra realism when I strip my victims (because stacking dead bodies just isn't fun if they aren't naked). I've never bothered looking for mods for it from Nexus or anywhere. Honestly I play probably %90 of the games I own un-modded. I do have all the expansion content though.
Same here, GotY on DVD(NO STEAM YEA). All expansions as well. Mods I use improve the user interface, add weather and lighting, increase the quality of the graphics (items, landscape, people), and add gun mods (add sights, or more ammo mag to some weapons). Unoffical patches fix many of the bugs Beth left in. I don't like overpowered avatar or wep/armor either. Mods I use also add content, more quests, more music, new locations. I get then at fo3nexus. I use Wyre Bash (Flash) for mod management. (I was never able to get Mod Organizer to work - looks like an awesome management tool - but ti doesn't like me, lol.)
Fallout 4 director Todd Howard confirmed the news to Digital Spy at this year's E3 gaming expo.
Fallout 4 will run at 1080p and 30 frames-per-second on everything.
Players will be able to build structures and defenses within the game world.
Mod support has been confirmed for PC, followed by Xbox One. PS4? – up to Sony.
Paid (player made) mods very unlikely.
Oh, and for those interested in the physical pip boy, sold out.
I'm guessing it was meant as a minimum. It's not much of a claim really, since it is a compliance requirement for consoles and nigh impossible to guarantee for PCs (compatibility is a nightmare).
I had the same questions - I'm also a big fan of Skyrim - modded and making mods...
Just found this on Forbes.com , we're all good on PC . Those specs are only locked on consoles, not for us. Bethesda knows better than to alienate their most loyal fan base.http://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonevangelho/2015/06/22/no-of-course-fallout-4-wont-be-locked-at-1080p30fps-on-pc/
Check it out.[Update: There we go! Bethesda has officially clarified that Fallout 4 is running at 1080p/30fps on Xbox One, PS4. "Resolution and FPS are not limited in any way on PC."]The console players tend to play the game once or twice, then never go back to it. Bethesda knows us PC players do mods and modding and they know we're the ones, not the console players, that keep their games installed for years and keep the replay value for them up long after they're done making expansions. They won't do us dirty.We're Safe!! Phew...heh
RavenX yes.. happy news. I'm wondering how they are getting mods on the XboxOne? Ok, now back to pillars of Eternity....
Consoles have had patches and dlc for quite a while now, adding mods to that should be technically trivial.
But that really does seem to be the issue RavenX. I suspect the data gathering would be more of a bonus on their giant rent farming (subscription of some kind required) content hub.
Also, I'm surprised you bought into press speculation and twitter response from Bethesda. It sounds like Native Resolution hype got conflated with PC and mixed in with a bit of completely made up (regardless of how plausible it is).
28 July 2015: No more collectors 'pip boy' editions available. Beth says they have no plans to issue more, even as fans rally to get more produced.
Also, new repair system in Fallout 4: http://www.pcgamer.com/fallout-4-might-have-a-new-repair-system-but-bethesda-isnt-ready-to-talk-about-it/

Gamespot article about leaked footage. 8 minutes of gameplay from fallout 4 illegally recorded and posted on various websites. Beth's legal arm has taken it down from most sites...
is url to GameSpot article.
Ars Technica:article about new perk system, enhanced FPS abilities, while traditional VATS left in place.
That was a great article, Elena, thanks One thing though, when you click on that link you still have to follow another link to get to the article over on arstechnica.com , at least I did anyway.
My bad. I wasn't careful. Sorry.
Three new articles:
3) Beth is releasing a line of FO4 themed action figures:
(not my cup of tea, but might be yours! )
June 9th: Beth announced that FO4 will have a massive increase in dialog. Stated that dialog in FO4 will be greater than FO3 and Skyrim combined.
Unlike its predecessors, Fallout 4 will be uncensored in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland when it launches on Nov. 10 this year, Bethesda confirmed on the German Fallout Facebook page.
