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.

Here's hoping Bethesda can port this to PS4 better than they did Skyrim to PS3.

PC to Black box containing PC shouldn't be a problem :)

@Temjin001 - Outside of one quest glitch for me on Skyrim, I say Bethesda did fine on the PS3 version of that game.

Fallout 3 however...

Fallout 3 was okay for me. It was all the dlc that was practically unplayable in my case.

Skyrim was fine for me (I never did get to see a backwards flying dragon). Worst thing was the large save files but that got taken care of rather early.

I mean this sounds good. But I'd rather spend my time playing. I mean the game has a post apocalyptic setting. The last thing I'm wanting to do is rebuild "the Tardis". I don't know just seems kind of out of place in a game in which the theme is survival.

It's not really a survival game per se imo. You could always customize your base, just not to this insane level. Ya gotta understand some fans put 2-300 hours in these games just tweaking and building and collecting. It's a great option for a game like this and people who prefer to be on the move don't have to.

It's not a survival game like RE or Dead Space. But the theme is absolutely about survival. All of the Fallouts are based around sending the player out into the post apocalyptic wastelands of various cities with nothing.

But trust me I'm a huge fan and have well over 1000 hours of gameplay just in Bethesda games between Oblivion, Fallout 3, Skyrim and ESO. I'm no slouch and I wouldn't understand how someone could ever spend 200 to 300 hours just building things in these games. I collect, I search every piece of the map, I build any weapon, armor, etc... I can, but I've never even imagined to myself that I would love to build a house to the extent they are saying you can. Maybe in an Elder Scrolls game, but not Fallout. Actually not even in Elder Scrolls, buying and decorating is good enough.

I also elected to be an Engineer rather than an Architect... that might have something to do with it. ;)

Hell yeah. That puts Skyrim to shame. I just have to decide what to make as my first house. What's a cool place?

maybe something like the base of Charlton Heston in the movie The Omega Man,you know,a nice house where you can show of what you collected in the wasteland,and a balcony where you can shoot the infected[radiated] with a cool sniper rifle and this in a hostile area and not in a secure area.
Or...maybe some base underground[if it's possible...].
Also i find this very realistic,would you not try to make a base for yourself if this kind of apocalyptic world would be real?

Call me crazy but this right here is the main attraction of the game for me. I can't wait to really build - *design* - my own home in that world. This feature will add at least a hundred hours to the playtime, guaranteed.

It is a dream scenerio for a lot of people. I had a friend work on his Skyrim houses like he was a master carpenter doing a job worth real money.

I am curious to explore the extent of the base builder. The whole "build this spaceship" thing has me excited to say the least.

i think the scope is a fair comparison.

and then the building stuff thats pritty cool too.

but then for sure you can build whatever as big or as small as you want so thats cool.

so that all sounds quite nice.

happy gaming
