Frequently Asked Questions about the future Fallout 4 by Bethesda Softworks.

Production and release detailsEdit

GeneralEdit

What is Fallout 4?Edit

Fallout 4 is an upcoming futuristic post-apocalyptic action-RPG set in an alternate universe that began to radically diverge from our own shortly after World War II, culminating in a global nuclear war in 2077 that created the post-apocalyptic setting of the Fallout games. The Fallout universe is thematically and stylistically inspired by the culture and technology of the 1950s and pulp science fiction.

Fallout 4 is a sequel to the games Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout 3.

When is Fallout 4 going to be released?Edit

Fallout 4 is scheduled for worldwide release on November 10, 2015.

Is Fallout 4 currently in production?Edit

According to Bethesda's Pete Hines, Fallout 4 was "basically done" prior to its reveal announcement on June 3, 2015, and the bulk of the remaining work to be done on the game before its November release involved polishing and bug fixing.[1]

Fallout 4 is speculated to be the game Bethesda had in pre-production since at least August 2010.[2]

Who is developing and publishing Fallout 4?Edit

Fallout 4 is being developed by Bethesda Game Studios and will be published by Bethesda Softworks.[3]

Todd Howard is leading the team developing Fallout 4, which is the same team that developed Fallout 3. The exact list of developers is unknown, although it will likely include many of the same people who worked on Fallout 3.

What is Fallout 4's setting?Edit

Fallout 4 will be set in the region around Boston, Massachusetts, known in the Fallout universe as The Commonwealth.[4]

While the opening sequence of the game will occur in the year 2077, just before the onset of the Great War, the main portion of the game takes place 200 years later in 2277.[5]

Who is Fallout 4's player character?Edit

The player character is the Sole Survivor of Vault 111.

Will any characters from previous Fallout games appear?Edit

Possibly. Erik Todd Dellums, the voice of Three Dog, teased in January 2013 that his voice, and potentially the character, may appear in a future title.[6]

Will Fallout 4 be an MMORPG?Edit

No. Like the previous 3D Fallout games, Fallout 4 will be an Action RPG.

What resolution and frame rate will Fallout 4 run at?Edit

Console versions will be capped at 1080p and 30FPS. PC versions will not be capped.

What will Fallout 4 be rated?Edit

Fallout 4 has a provisional rating of PEGI 18 in Europe. In the United States, it will be rated M for mature.

Did Bethesda really invite fan suggestions in mid-2013 for Fallout 4?Edit

No.

For years the Bethesda Forums have maintained an "Official" suggestion thread for fan ideas. The purpose of this thread is not to solicit fan ideas, but organize those that are coming in anyway.

This topic is for a friendly discussion of ideas and suggestions for Fallout 4. This thread is so that we can keep all the discussion in one place.

— Bethesda Forums boilerplate comment put in every single suggestion thread

As per Bethesda Forum policy, all threads are closed at 200 posts. Being a popular topic, a similar topic is posted again almost immediately after the previous ones closure, by a forum moderator.

All forum moderators are volunteer members of the forum community, and are not Bethesda/Zenimax staff. They do not speak for any Bethesda/Zenimax group company in any capacity (the exceptions are those identified as community managers, such as Gstaff and Nick Breckton).

Sadly, this story has been alleged a number of times by an online news site clearly unaware of how the Bethesda forums work.
