You'd think Bethesda would have plenty to do in the final weeks before Fallout 4's Nov. 10 release, but the good guys and gals who are preparing the post-apocalyptic RPG also want to teach you about the game's systems.

This first video explores the Strength trait, or the S in S.P.E.C.I.A.L.. 

Enjoy!

Gamer hodilton simply outdid himself with his The Last of Us-inspired Fallout 4 mod here. Granted, some folks might take issue with the fact this kind of mod actively conflicts with the typically barren, desert-like wasteland in that of Fallout's apocalyptic wasteland; but honestly, can't we just appreciate an effort to combine elements from two great games?

For the sake of full disclosure I'm still exploring the original map from Fallout 4, and now Bethesda hits us with this galvanizing bit of news..a landmass in the Far Harbor DLC is slated to be bigger than Oblivion's biggest map (even though that game came out ages ago). Let the jaws hit the floor.

The biggest catch, or qualm rather, that I hold here is the fact Far Harbor will have less 'playable content' than Shivering Isles. Ah well, if anything we'll enjoy some better developed faction quests, more challenging creatures and dastardly dungeons and higher-level armor and weapons sets.


And the big 'ol bold news for Fallout 4 don't stop there, as I'm sure you know, survival mode hit PCs today alongside a new patch. Some of the notable takeaways with the new survival mode :


-Quicksaving and "almost" all autosaves are disabled; you will instead need to find a bed and sleep for at least an hour to save the game.


-Fast travel is disabled.


-You now deal more damage, but you also take more damage. Players can also further increase their damage with the new "Adrenaline" perk, Bethesda explained. Every five kills increases your Adrenaline rank, adding 5 percent each time for up to 50 percent damage at the max rank of 10.


-Combat is now "more strategic," as you will need to make use of block/parry to stay alive.


-Threats (outside of those added by a Recon scope) will not display on your compass; additionally, the distance at which areas of interest will show up has been "significantly shorted."


-You will also need to take care of yourself, staying hydrated, fed, and rested. Don't eat, drink, or sleep for a while and your health will deteriorate.


-Fatigue will affect your Action Points, meaning the more Fatigue you have, the less Action Points you'll have available for sprinting and using V.A.T.S.

E3.

E3 never changes.

Actually it does, because this year marks the first year ever that Bethesda will be having its own conference at E3, and this year is all about everything Fallout 4! Tune in for new features, gameplay highlights, and all the latest news coming out of Bethesda regarding the most highly-anticipated game release of the year.

Speaking of releases, Bethesda should also be announcing the game's actual release date. Fingers crossed for 2015.

Knowing that we are salivating for more Fallout 4 news in lieu of it's Nov. 1 release, developer Bethesda dropped some more information about what comes after that fateful launch on their company blog.

It's not really any big surprise that there will be DLC or that they will offer a season pass, but it's still neat to know.

We've always done a lot of DLC for our games. We love making them and you always ask us for more. To reward our most loyal fans, this time we'll be offering a Season Pass that will get you all of the Fallout 4 DLC we ever do for just $30. Since we're still hard at work on the game, we don't know what the actual DLC will be yet, but it will start coming early next year. Based on what we did for Oblivion, Fallout 3, and Skyrim, we know that it will be worth at least $40, and if we do more, you'll get it all with the Season Pass.



They also discussed how the original game would continue to evolve.

We'll be doing regular free updates to the game, and like Skyrim, these will come with not just fixes, but new features. For Skyrim we added things like mounted combat, legendary mode, kill cams, visual enhancements and more. We'll work with all of you to figure out what new things you'd love to see added to Fallout 4, whether they are small tweaks or new features.

Bethesda! How you tease us!

In the most recent of their educational videos on the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system, the developer goes over the importance of Intelligence.

These have been a whole lot of fun to watch, but all they do is dangle the carrot in front of our eyes before Fallout 4's Nov. 10 release.

Bethesda has confirmed that rumors circulating of a trademark filing for Fallout: Shadow of Boston are totally fake, not real, 100% a hoax. Last year we saw a leaked casting call for a Fallout game taking place in Boston, so perhaps that's where the cruel person behind this hoax got the idea. That said, you can still hold out hope that a Boston game is real, just not this Boston game.
