Why the Next 10 Years of Fallout Will Smash the Last 10

It is only logical way to think that in the next 10 years we will deeply enjoy Fallout 4. Let's remember the facts from the past; Original Fallout game came out back in 1997, Fallout 2 the next year, in 1998, and spin-off Fallout: Tactics came out in 2001. So, we "old" Fallout gamers enjoyed Fallout for more than 10 years until we finally got the new-gen sequel Fallout 3.. I know not many will agree, but New Vegas is actually another spin-off, no matter it is more similar to original Fallout games and it should be the true sequel to Fallout 2. So, when we can expect Fallout 4? In *2018! 10 years after Fallout 3 came out.. In my opinion, it will be worth of waiting as it was worth to wait for Fallout 3 for 10 years. It will also be the next-gen game and it will rock our world.

One of many popular memes about Fallout 4
When it comes to announcement, it could happen very soon, at VGX 2014, but I wouldn't get my hopes too high. Geoff Keighley, the executive producer of VGX, stated that he had a “great night planning with the ladies who run Bethesda,” hinting the possibility of a major game announcement. If Fallout 4 gets announced at VGX 2014, then we can expect it to come out in late 2015 / 2016, but as I said, I wouldn't get my hopes high. Bethesda also recently filed the trademark for Pip-Boy, but to me, it is something that should have been done in years before, and I don't think it has anything with hinting a possible Fallout 4 announcement. Let's just remember that there have been numerous hoaxes and speculations about the game, though officially there is no word yet.


To get back on the topic, the next 10 years of Fallout will smash the last 10 simply because we will get Fallout 4 eventually, and it will be the next GOTY, a game of epic proportions, just like it was Fallout 3 compared to Fallout 2 (I don't mean the story). It will be next-gen and that means the developer will be looking to improve the gaming experience by releasing it for next-gen consoles and PC only, with better graphics, processing power, detailed environment, immersive feel, and even with a deeper plot. According to a report by JBG News, this will lend a sense of morality to the game character. It opines that the developer could "exploit the idea of morality and use it as a driving force behind Fallout 4, intensifying the player's attention to detail and wanting to right (or wrong) things."

Fallout Games History Overview

Fallout is an open world role-playing video game developed and published by Interplay Entertainment in 1997. The game has a post-apocalyptic and retro-futuristic setting, in the aftermath of a global nuclear war in an alternate historytimeline mid-22nd century. The protagonist of Fallout is an inhabitant of one of the long-term shelters known as Vaults who was tasked to find the Water Chip to save other dwellers from water's shortage.

Fallout is considered to be the spiritual successor to the 1988 role-playing video game Wasteland. It was initially intended to use Steve Jackson Games' system GURPS, but Interplay eventually used an internally developed systemSPECIAL. The game was critically acclaimed and inspired a number of sequels and spin-off games, known collectively as the Fallout series.

Fallout 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed game that took RPG'ing out of the dungeons and into a dynamic, apocalyptic retro-future. Fallout 2 is developed by Black Isle Studios and published by Interplay in 1998. While featuring a considerably larger game world and a far more extensive storyline, the graphics and game mechanics from Fallout remain mostly unchanged.

It's been 80 long years since your ancestor trod across the wastelands. As you search for the Garden of Eden Creation Kit to save your primitive village, your path is strewn with crippling radiation, megalomaniac mutants, and a relentless stream of lies, deceit and treachery. You begin to wonder if anyone really stands to gain anything from this brave new world.

Fallout: Tactics - the game follows a squad in the fictional Brotherhood of Steel as it becomes engaged in a desperate war. Although the game takes place in the Fallout universe, it does not follow or continue the story of either Fallout or Fallout 2. Fallout Tactics shipped with a bonus CD when it was pre-ordered. The bonus CD included Fallout: Warfare, a table-top miniatures game based on the Fallout universe, as well as a bonus mission for the main game which occurs in Springfield.

You are the wretched refuse. You may be born from dirt, but we will forge you into steel. You will learn to bend; if not you, will you break. In these dark times, the Brotherhood - your Brotherhood - is all that stands between the rekindled flame of civilization and the howling, radiated wasteland. Your weapons will become more than your tools, they will become your friends. You will use your skills to inspire the lowly and protect the weak... whether they like it or not. Your squadmates will be more dear to you than your kin and for those that survive there will be honor, respect and the spoils of war.
