Despite a trailer only going live earlier this month, publisher Bethesda has announced at its press conference at the E3 games show in Los Angeles that Fallout 4 will be released later this year on November 10.
Kicking off the biggest week in the video games calendar this year in style, the publisher also showed off a planned remake of Doom - out next year in the spring - as well as Dishonored 2.
Playable female characters we confirmed for both Fallout 4 and Dishonored 2 and met with applause, and the first gameplay sequences for Fallout were shown.
The game will feature a 'highly customisable environment' and of course the Pip-Boy in-game gaming device, which will also this year be shipped out as a real-life playable item with special editions of the game, powered by smartphones.
A companion game comes in the form of Fallout Shelter, dedicated to Fallout 4 and played on iPhones and iPads, taking on an iOS suitable format. Players will here be able to build their own Vaults where residents can hope to live out the nuclear apocalypse unharmed. That app is available for download now.
