The event for Bethesda's most hotly anticipated title, Fallout 4, has finally kicked off with a brand new gameplay reveal trailer. Thankfully Bethesda Game Studios did not disappoint and came in prepared with even more in-game footage which is sure to thrill fans of the series.
They revealed over 9 minutes of in-game footage that is packed full of action.

So without any further delay let's check out what everyone's been waiting for !
The world is vast and open, you will be able to interact with and use almost everything that you see. There's also a brand new and improved system for commanding fellow companions, including your dog. For example you can ask your dog to go and retrieve an item simply by looking at it and giving the command to the dog.
Your character is fully voiced, and you will of course have the freedom to play as a male or a female. You will be able to completely customize the character to your liking with the new character customization system. Which allows you to easily customize any part of your character's face by simply clicking on it and adjusting, without the use of any menus.
Thankfully the game looks decidedly gorgeous. For those of you who were slightly worried after watching the initial reveal trailer fear not. The game actually looks quite incredible. The visual prowess of the game can be best appreciated in the game's combat gameplay trailer posted above. The improved visuals are mainly thanks to a next generation version of Bethesda's Creation Engine which they debuted with Skyrim. The updated version has entirely new lighting and shading systems as well as a brand new physics engine.

Players can craft a huge variety of items and build entire settlements which you will need to power with generators and defend. You will be able to build defenses and ally with NPCs to fence off raiders who can and will attack your beloved settlement.
The crafting system relies on you taking and using objects from the environment as well as gathering resources which you will use to build settlements and buildings, craft items, weapon parts and attachments as well as customize and work on your armor.
