Bethesda Talks Building Customization In Fallout 4
The comparisons will be inevitable, even if the two franchises are decidedly different from an atmospheric and thematic standpoint.
Fallout 4 won't be like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but developer Bethesda compares the two games in terms of scope. In a recent GameSpot interview, Bethesda Marketing VP Pete Hines spoke about the extent of customization they'll offer in the new Fallout.
He said you'll have "much more control over your base" than you had in Skyrim, in referring to the homes players can own and customize:
"It's not just, 'Hey, here's Breezehome [one of the houses in Skyrim],' where we just picked a house, and you can buy it, and you can go to somebody and say, 'Here's this much gold, and put this thing into my house.' [In Fallout 4] it's, 'Now I'm building it, I'm actually building the house, I'm building the wall, I'm placing the door, I made the table, I made the mattress.' It's that sense of making your own way in the world and defining, 'Who am I and where do I live and what's my story in this world?'"
He added that there are plenty of options for building within the pre-set locations around the world. "You can definitely build up," he said. In fact, he said you can really go nuts if you so desire, which should please the endlessly creative gamers out there:
"Much like a game like Minecraft, you can be a noob and just build a simple little thing. And you can also get the guys who go crazy and [can say], 'I rebuilt the spaceship from this game... [or] I rebuilt the Tardis from Doctor Who using the lights and stuff and it looks exactly like it.' Like, holy s**t that's incredible."
Fallout 4 will be ready to go on November 10 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. You can also check out some new character and companion info.
