Bethesda Releases Awesome Fallout 4 Live Action Trailer

What would a Fallout 4 movie look like?

Bethesda has released an awesome live action Fallout 4 trailer that shows off the game's post apocalyptic setting, to the sounds of Dion's The Wanderer.

The trailer begins by showing off the world before it is transformed into a desolate wasteland, with the wandering wanderer emerging with his four legged pal, Dogmeat. We get a look at some armour, radroaches, Mr. Handy, and more. And - if you're like me - you're hoping for a live action Fallout movie after watching 58 seconds of pretty awesome wandering.

Bethesda has been steadily hyping fans for Fallout 4's November release. A series of educational videos, with a charmingly cheesy 1950's- style design and narration, have released in order to explain the game's S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system, so far covering strength, perception, endurance, charisma, intelligence, and agility, with luck coming next week. Bethesda also teamed up with Loot Crate to create limited edition Fallout 4 crates.

Fallout 4 is slated for release worldwide on November 10 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

I appreciate the gesture Bethesda, but I'd rather get a gameplay trailer.

Wasting ammo on a radroach, what a scrub.

That's not live action, is it? I thought it as just Square Enix levels of CGI?

The press release said live action :)

as far as cinematic trailers go, that was pretty awesome, I'd take a fallout movie in that style any day.

but seeing some newer actual in game gameplay/characters/story probably would've been better suited.

That was a nice cinematic. I'd like to see some gameplay.

I noticed the music for this trailer is a definite change from the swing/crooners/rhythm & blues style of Fallout 3.

I wonder if that has any significance, moving away from the idealistic 50s style into a more rocking 60s style, perhaps the world is moving on, with the green radiation filter of Fallout 3 gone and the inclusion of a settlement building mechanic perhaps this game will focus more on the rebuilding of society rather than the daily survival grind the previous games had a lot of.
A post-post apocalyptic role playing game perhaps?

Or maybe I'm just really overthinking this. Still it was a nice video. I suppose they call it live action to make sure it's distinguished from proper actual gameplay videos.

I'd say it's more an indication that Bethesda doesn't understand the Fallout "culture" and setting compared to Black Isle/Obsidian.

Don't forget, it's an IP they BOUGHT, not an IP they developed.

Live action trailer, that's a nice way of saying LIES.

You guys realize they released a Gameplay Trailer a while ago, right? Like, at E3?

Easy mistake to make, pretty much everything in the trailer is CGI except the protagonist and the dog, and the people in the very beginning that you only see for a split second.

Overall, its a nice followup to the live action Skyrim trailer, it will likely be what they use for the T.V. spots.

just because they bought the series doesn't mean they don't care about the accuracy of the lore. and i'd say he's probably onto something with that. I mean, everything about this area of the apocalypse just screams "progress". in the capital wasteland, it was just survival, even the societies that formed were all very basic. here in boston, we've got the institute, a relatively advanced looking city in the baseball stadium, I think we're on the better end of the times and world here.

Hopefully!

After all, Fallout has always been a post-post apocalypse style game, with Fallout 3 being the odd-man out by looking like the apocalypse just happened. (An idea that people complained about back then claiming that Bethesda "didn't understand Fallout" so it looks like they'll never get a break)

trailers pretty epic, and I'm okay with it not being another gameplay trailer. Why? Because every trailer so far has been a gameplay trailer, and there's been tons of narrated videos from the devs explaining new features. Fallout 4 has been the most gameplay-y trailed game this year, so if they want to release a good live action trailer the more power to them.

I don't know what abombination is on about, New Vegas under Obsidian started doing more 60's stuff before FO4 did blatantly including figures from the 60's (the kings being Elvis impersonators) and have used early 60's music in the past. It's one song from 1961 and it doesn't really break from the theme at all, especially since leaning on old music was something Fallout wasn't really known for until Bethesda released 3 anyway.

If we're talking about the rebuilding vs. perpetual wasteland stuff, then that isn't Black Isle/Obsidian either, that's just the way Chris Avellone sees it and his fellow Fallout writers have fought with him on that point since the original games, Obsidian flatout overrode him on some points of New Vegas because of this and you can see the vision clash in the DLC with his mouthpiece character Ulysses. Avellone's a good writer, but the man gets up his own ass with his author insert characters sometimes.

I dunno, it didn't seem all that "awesome" to me. It was on ok trailer.

The dog is definitely live action. Some of the ways the Vault Dweller walks look too good to be CGI. But there's a good mix of CGI in there too. It's a very, VERY nice trailer from that perspective.

But really, I just want to get my hands on the damn game. Trailers are nice. Little videos are nice. But I want to plop down on the couch with a beer and just to stomp on radroaches, ya know?

Cool trailer. I wouldn't start gushing about it quite so much, though. I think, like other people have noted, the CGI in the trailer is very obvious in some areas and makes the trailer look just worse at a few points.
It's nothing major, as i said it's a cool trailer, but i have definetly seen better ones, including non-gameplay videogame trailers. Outside of the CGI-thing though the trailer is really really well done and i like that a lot.

I want to want this, but Fallout 3 was a massive disappointment to me. As are most other Bethsoft games to be honest. I'll figure out my feelings sometime after release i guess.

I cannot wait to play this game. Haha radroaches.
