After years—years—of teases, leaks, and fanboys shrieking “Fallout 4??!!” on forums anytime Bethesda hinted plans to announce anything, Fallout 4 is finally here, and well, it’s pretty much exactly what you’d expect. Bethesda added some new features like base-building, weapons crafting, and better gunplay, but at its core, Fallout 4 is largely Fallout 3 in a new location—bugs and all.
Hayden Dingman felt some of the new systems actually dilute the core Fallout appeal in PCWorld’s Fallout 4 review, and that’s true to an extent, but fear not, series fans. If you loved Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, then Fallout 4 will be right up your alley. It’s more Fallout, plain and simple.
