If you’re a gamer like me that tried the Hearthfire expansion for Skyrim, the prospect of building an in-game home from the ground up was exciting. Unfortunately the options available in Hearthfire weren’t many, and what had started as exciting soon became a somewhat boring quest and a bit of a grind. The problem with Hearthfire is most of the homes looked almost identical to each other, and the amount of materials one had to collect to reach the point of completion made the whole task more of a chore than a thrill.
In a recent interview at Quakecon (which you can read more about on Gamespot), Marketing VP Pete Hines of Bethesda explained how Fallout 4 will empower gamers to be more architecturally creative than its Elder Scrolls predecessor. In essence, Fallout 4 will allow players to have a Minecraft-like control over the look of their home bases. For those of us who like to play house within our post-apocalyptic video games, this could be really amazing.
Of course, there is the question: how nice can someone really make their home look when basically every material at your disposal is likely a piece of junk collected from a barren wasteland? Nonetheless, we shall soon find out! Only a little over three months to go before the next installment in the Fallout franchise releases on 11/10/15.
