Gamers were pleasantly surprised when Bethesda announced Fallout 4 early last month, then showed off some gameplay during E3. However, while the announcement and few details were exciting, the developer still has plenty to reveal about the game, and with only a few months left until release, it looks like Bethesda is eager to provide new details soon.
Those new Fallout 4 details will come in the form of a gameplay demo at this month’s QuakeCon event. Bethesda announced in an email that the studios’ Game Director, Todd Howard, will provide conference attendees an exclusive look at the game on Friday, July 24th at 1:00 pm Central.
Bethesda hasn’t yet revealed what the gameplay will include, but it’s likely the developer will show off a few of the game’s new features, including its base-building system. During this year’s E3, the developer gave gamers a taste of the award-winning game‘s base building, which will give players a chance to acquire materials, build their base, and upgrade as needed to protect against enemies. It’s also likely Bethesda will provide more details about the game’s story and characters, which have been central to previous Fallout games.
Some panels and presentation will be shared with the general public via the developer’s Twitch channel, though based on Bethesda’s announcement that the Fallout 4 demo will be for attendees only, it’s likely the developer will not air the demo during the presentation, but will instead opt to share it later. Still, it’s hard not to speculate about what may be featured in the upcoming showcase.
Unlike the other presentations and panels on the events list for the show, the Fallout 4 presentation has no end time. Hopefully this means attendees will have a chance to ask questions and gather additional information about the game, which they can share with the rest of the world. That will be even better if Bethesda does decide to live-stream the presentation, or at the very least share it later.
Besides Fallout 4, Bethesda and id Software will also be sharing information about Doom and The Elder Scrolls Online, as well as some tabletop games like Magic: The Gathering, Krosmaster, Pixel Tactics, and others. QuakeCon will be held in Dallas, Texas from July 23rd to the 26th.
