'Fallout 4' News: Trailer Launch Reveals Major Details; MIT, Synths, History, Nuclear War, Possible Protagonist Highlighted
"Fallout 4" is one of the most anticipated games of the year. Bethesda is keeping a lot of things under the hood for this game, making the fans more anxious. However, the game developer has released a launch trailer that gives out new details about the latest franchise of the series.
"Fallout 4" is set in Boston and will include MIT or Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The Institute plays an integral part in the game, which has already been briefly mentioned in the past "Fallout" games. This is also where the advanced technology starts out. This includes the advanced AI called the Synths, an android that resembles men and women.
"I have a question: the only question that matters. Would you risk your life for your fellow man, even if that man is a synth?", someone in the trailer said so, which means that the synth will definitely play an important role in "Fallout 4." There seems to be some hatred against these individuals that a question like that would surface on the trailer, the TechTimes reported.
The "Fallout 4" launch trailer also showed how "Fallout" series started. An in-game footage of the nuclear war that started it all was shown. The "man out of time" character seems to be there as well. It seems that a gameplay is possible with this protagonist. Nevertheless, this is just a hunch. Bethesda is constantly reminding the "Fallout" community that it will not know anything concerning the plot until the game is released, IGN reported.
Bethesda's Vice President of PR and Marketing Pete Hines said, "I would be stunned if we said anything else about the story ever again [prior to launch]. We're going to let everybody experience that in the game as much as possible. But there are certain trade-offs you have to make to build some amount of awareness to what the game is offering, so you're willing to make some sacrifices."
"Fallout 4" will hit the shelves on Nov. 10 and will be released for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC platforms.
