As previously announced, the first-ever Bethesda E3 Showcase took place last night at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. The games developer showcased a new DOOM trailer, Dishonoured 2 and Dishonored: Definitive Edition, The Elder Scrolls: Legends, The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited, Battlecry, and a new website called Bethesda.net. However, the headlining presentation of the show, saved until last, was the information about Fallout 4, the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy Edition and immediate release of the free Fallout Shelter game for iOS.

Fallout 4 will launch globally on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 10th November 2015. Bethesda. Bethesda execs talked about the game and released 28 new screenshots. The new game allows in-depth character customisation and an all-new crafting system. Players can create their own settlements with everything in Fallout 4 being a resource. There are more than 50 base weapons available with over 700 mods to customise them -and power armour. A dynamic dialogue system allows players to walk away from the game at any point.

Information about Fallout 4 starts at 12.25, continues at 1.05.50 (gameplay from 1.11.00), ends with an interview at 2.15.30

Fallout 4 will be available in a Pip-Boy Edition which includes a Pip-Boy smartphone case for your wrist and companion app to manage inventory, perks, holotapes and more. This edition will retail at $119.99, £99.99 and €129.99. The wearable cuff case is said to "faithfully replicate the in-game model," and includes rotating knobs and lighting. Customisable foam inserts allow you to fit "a variety of smartphone devices".

Fallout Shelter is a new free mobile game. Currently it is available on only Apple devices (on iPhone and iPad). The free to download game is described as follows: "Fallout Shelter puts you in control of a state-of-the-art underground Vault from Vault-Tec. Build the perfect Vault, keep your Dwellers happy, and protect them from the dangers of the Wasteland. Vault-Tec has provided the tools, but the rest is up to you. What are you waiting for? Get started building your Vault today for free."

We previously published the official Fallout 4 trailer. As for all the other games covered in the first-ever Bethesda E3 Showcase, I'll let their trailers do the talking…

No. Don't do it. You normally mock these people who pre-order games to get stupid little gifts.

Step away from the computer Jowsey.

This isn't for you.

…I'm struggling guys. That looks awesome!
I like the sound of the free/promo Fallout Shelter game too.. but I don't have anything it'll run on :(
I'm constantly amazed at how they arrive at those prices in € and £.

$120 = £77.41
+VAT (pun) = £92.90

Add in higher per unit logistic costs and extra charges for remote operations/currencies and £99 starts to look completely reasonable compared to the dollar price.
The usual stupid question arises - why is buying a ‘hard copy’ of the game so much cheaper than the digital version (e.g. Amazon.co.uk currently lists the PC download version at 49.99 and the standard edition disc version as £37.50?). If it weren't for the fact it's cheaper to buy discs, I'd be getting all my games (excluding collectors version-type things) as downloads by now.
