Fallout 3 preview in CD Action
Fallout 3 preview in CD Action [ Game -> Preview ]

There's a new Fallout 3 preview in the Polish magazine CD Action. They saw the same presentation by Pete in London as the Gry-Online people. Not much there is new.

It looks like Fallout 3 will actually hit the stores in autumn, and... it won't be a bad game. The question is whether it will be Fallout as I would like to see and remember it.

Some bits:

  • The game was quite complete and stable
  • It won't be "Oblivion with lasers" - Pete's knowledge of Black Isle games and respect towards them was astounding
  • The aim of Vault 101 was to house the best and brightest of the pre-war world. But now, 200 years after the holocaust, no one remembers it...
  • It's disappointing that you can only have one companion at a time
  • One new perk is mentioned - Exploding Pants, which allows you to plant grenades on your opponents (note - this was clarified by Gstaff as not a perk, but just one of the things the game keeps track of, like "Corpses Eaten")
  • Most of the weapons and armors (even power armor and turbo plasma) can be found by in early parts of the game, but they have their disadvantages
  • It will be able to finish the game with a character focused on hand to hand combat or stealth (they call Emil the "maker of the Thief series")
  • Fallout 3's world is smaller than the one in Oblivion, but less empty
  • Fast travel between known locations, no vehicles
  • Full day and night system
There will be more tales from the Vault in the next issue of the magazine.
