According to Jerome Weiswasser at UGR Gaming, Bethesda revealed their current progress on Fallout 4 behind closed doors during a 45-minute presentation. Luckily for you, someone was willing to leak some of the information presented. The presentation included a 37-second trailer (video unavailable) as well as some of the following details:
– As it stands now, Fallout 4 will release on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. However, this is still subject to change.
– The game is (as of June 2013) 55% complete, consequently, voice actors will be hired towards the end of 2014.
– There is no planned multi-player, but there is a possibility of Co-Op locally.
– The game will take place in Somerville, Cambridge, Arlington (and surrounding areas). The main setting is in a Post-Apocalyptic Boston. However, this area will not be immediately accessible.
The expected launch is in October 2015.

William “Bing” Gordon, the co-founder of Electronic Arts, says playing video games builds skills that translate into success later in life. “Games have been so ubiquitous in the formative years of so many adults that the structure of games is now appearing in many different walks of life,” he says. Gordon cites airlines, advertisers and health care companies, among others. Financial website SaveUp, for example, uses contests and badges to reward customers who save more. Such methods, adds Gordon, could make today’s kids one of the most productive generations ever.
