Bethesda get the jump on E3 with a full-blown trailer for Fallout 4. Although it's not much of a looker compared to something like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the post-apocalyptic splendour of this Boston wasteland does look enticing. Can't wait to be three levels deep in some irradiated bunker scratching around for batteries.
I wonder if the pre-bomb interludes are just included here to frame the game's madcap culture or if they represent a literal piece of the experience? Previous entries in the series have trusted the audience to cotton onto the 1950s exceptionalism-gone-wrong premise. Perhaps Bethesda are looking to ape The Last of Us' great, playable fall-of-man sequence? If you're gonna steal, you might as well steal from the best eh?
