TPG presents over an hour of commentary-free gameplay footage from the PC version of Fallout 4. The videos below were captured at 1920×1080 on an 3.5Ghz AMD FX 6300, 4GB GeForce 960, 16GB RAM and a standard HDD using the High graphical preset. Attempting to use Ultra resulted in framerates anywhere from 30-40, but in most cases, the High preset gave a nice 50-60. There are no main story spoilers revealed in any of the videos aside from the opening sequence. The exploration videos were captured with no prior knowledge of the area. We will be publishing a full long-form review soon. For now, here are some bullet points based on the 10 hours of game time already put in.
– Long loading times lasting 40-90 seconds. The high side is normally experienced during Fast Travel.
– Little to no in-game mouse acceleration issues. Menus have a considerable amount.
– No crashes.
– No bugs or glitches.
– Radiation poisoning now takes your available health.
– There is a slight delay in restoring health from Stimpacks due to a new animation, reminiscent of Far Cry 2.
– Highly annoying sound effects on the Perk screen.
– Hit and miss animations/graphics. Some look great, some awful.
– Dialogue trees now use a Mass Effect style presentation (see last screen shot).
– Percentages of successful influences in speech replaced by a color coded system (see last screen shot).
