Production and release details
What is Fallout 4?
Fallout 4 will be a futuristic post-apocalyptic RPG set in an alternate universe based on 50s pulp sci-fi, as if the world had stopped in the optimistic 50s and found itself on a dystopian post-apocalyptic reality. It is a sequel to the games Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3, and Fallout: New Vegas.
When was it published?
Fallout 4 was speculated to be the game Bethesda has had in pre-production since at least August 2010. A past reference implied that the game was in production in at least January 2013, when Erik Todd Dellums, the actor who voiced Three Dog in Fallout 3, tweeted that the character may soon return, and later clarified that he was given official permission to post the tease, which means that more details are likely to follow soon. On June 3rd 2015, after a day long countdown, the official trailer for Fallout 4 was uploaded to Bethesda's official website, and the game was released six months later on November 10, 2015.
Is is an MMORPG?
No, it is a single-player game, like previous Fallouts. However, Bethesda has developed Fallout 76, which, while sharing MMORPG attributes, is not quite that.
