Finnish magazines get all the love. Well, at least when it comes to recent press on Fallout 3
. Finnish magazine Pelaaja
grabbed a few scans of the game in progress and we must say, it seems to be coming in line nicely, following details already laid out by Bethesda
. These scans look great, even if they are a little blurry (likely due to the fact they are scans and not pure screen shots of the game in progress). The character models appear to be fleshed out with texture-a-plenty and we'll bet the lighting will hold similar Oblivion-like
bloom effects upon the game's release.
franchise certainly has its fair share of rabid fans, so it was extremely
important that Bethesda carry the torch with gloved hands
, as to not disrupt or crack the foundation already set in place. Without a preview of the game, it's far too early to tell if the plot will hold firm on the foundation set by former developer Black Isle
, but the scans show mighty promise. The colors are fairly drab and muted, kept to a palette rich in silver and brown (perfect for a post-apocolyptic setting such as this). Also, the scans confirm Bethesda's previous confirmation of using a modified Oblivion
engine and keeping the 1st and 3rd person perspective for RPG narrative. We've put all four scans into a gallery and will be updating with more scans and screen shots as they come in. Fallout 3
is quite a ways off, scheduled for release in Fall of 2008.
