The game starts off with the player emerging from an underground bunker, known as a Vault. During the game, you can complete quests and get experience points to level up your character and gain new abilities.
“I think it’s a really fun game. It has plenty of things to keep you busy, and it’s open-world so you can pretty much go anywhere. You can also build new weapons, and start communities to help people. There is also so much to explore. It will keep you busy for at least 100 hours if you do other things then the main story,” said sophomore Colby May.
The game lets you either play in first person or third person view and even allows you to play in multiplayer. Players as well have to ability to construct and deconstruct buildings and other items which can be used to build a settlement that can attract non-playable characters to possibly live there.
Meridian graduate, Jon Nave said, “You can design your own land, you can customize what you wanna play from a big teddy bear or as a big war machine, the graphics are amazing, your dog can’t die anymore, all in all, it’s just a really fantastic game.”
According to Tech Insider, Fallout 4 has broke records on the first day it was released. Fallout 4 had 1.2 million PC players playing the game on the first day of availability.
