In anticipation of Fallout 4 going live on the 11th of November for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, fans of the game have begun to post screenshots from Fallout 4. Bethesda reacts over Fallout 4 leaks with a message posted on their forums. Matt Grandstaff, global community lead wrote that although gamers are complaining on how the game looks they should rather keep to themselves.
Grandstaff also said that those who chose to post screenshots detailing Fallout’s 4 gameplay may be in possession of unauthorized copies and are thus breaking what he called the non-disclosure clause they had to sign with Bethesda.
The game screenshots found all over the web come to tease gamers on upcoming game content. Although the graphical engine seems to entail no improvement since Bethesda released Fallout 3, game designers point out that there are quite a lot of difference between them.
So what can we actually see in those screenshots? We can see a couple of NPC’s, a couple of bad guys, weapons and a power armor. But, digging deeper in the internet’s archive we discover additional content. In one screenshot we can see the player battling a deathclaw with a power armor on. Still we don’t see any improvement regarding HUD design or targeting system. Maybe the colors changed a bit.
In another screenshot detailing a violent encounter between the player and a couple of mall raider, we can see that the HUD’s color changed from that bright green to a subtle silver. Also the weapons seem to be left untouched since New Vegas. The Tommy-gun looks like it is only held together only by the power of will and so is the Gatling gun.
On the bright side, the game seems to have lost that edginess in character and terrain design. NPCs are rendered better and the land actually reacts to the player. No more characters that look like puppets and say the same thing over and over again. And the grass actually moves when you walk through it.
And even the power armor received a new kind of luster. It looks cool and menacing at the same time and from another screenshot we can clearly see that the gamer will be able to modify their armor.
As the release date draws closer, Bethesda reacts over Fallout 4, saying that these attempts of posting unofficial material can only baffle the customer.
