The Fallout 4 launch trailer finally gives us some story hints

Bethesda has finally released the Fallout 4 launch trailer and it gives us a few hints as to what to expect from its storyline.

With the Fallout 4 release date nearly upon us, Bethesda has treated us to the official launch trailer for the game.

And for the first time since Fallout 4 was launched at E3 2015, we’ve finally got some storyline details.

“Everything can change in an instance, whether or not you’re ready,” explains the female protagonist.

“This wasn’t the world I wanted, but it was the one I found myself in,” adds the male counterpart. “But this time I’m ready, because I know war.”

The trailer takes you through some of the key locations of the game, which is set in Boston, Massachusetts in the US.

It also explores questions of morality, as to whether you’d save the life of your fellow man if they were a synth.

We’re a little worried about the facial animations though, as one woman speaking in the trailer doesn’t seem to have any teeth, rather a black hole for a mouth.

“Beneath the Commonwealth, there’s a cancer known as The Institute. A malignant growth that needs to be cut becfore it infects the surface,” stresses one unknown character.

But enough of us blathering, watch the Fallout 4 launch trailer for yourself and see what you can glean from it.
