    Would be beyond hyped if the only thing we got at the end of the timer is an high-res picture of Tim Cain....

    I managed to find stuff about the engine FO4 will use.

    I didn't sign a NDA, but I am not sure if I am allowed to say..

    I hope the first aren't real. That's some crappy boxart.

    The second pic does look sweet, implies a more developed world.

    The second picture is sweet indeed, kinda different from F3 art style. Cover art looks really lazy.

    Which reminds me of issues of the T-45.

    First of all the '-' is NOT used by the US Army. They don't use it.

    Prototype tank? T30, T29, etc. Abrams was XM1 and the pre production was M1E1.

    Prototype gun? XM8.

    Pr-.. You get the idea, it's not T-45, it's T45. T51B too.

    Second, the animation. Seriously, this is 2015, they better fix those shoulder pads.

    Not so diffrenet, still high level. But that's why such concept arts doesn't matter at all. Most of them from Beth is indeed really good, but it doesn't translate into in-game situation.

    I know. The point is that concept art can be fucking gorgeous, beyond everything, but it don't have impact on the game itself at all, other than giving a reason for mental masturbation to fans. :P

    Concept from DLC, the Pitt.
    Vanilla 3 was like this in concept arts:

    Two years from now, Bethesda's people will be all busy doing TES VI. Making a whole new Fallout game, albeit one using the same engine and a lot of the same resources, would then require them to hire a full new development team. Doing that is both costly and risky. It might make a lot more financial sense to hand the franchise off to another studio, like Obsidian, instead. Even if relations between the studios turned sour the last time around, there is no question about the fact that New Vegas sold millions of copies, while it didn't cost Bethesda a whole lot. And even if people at Bethesda might be unwilling to let another studio get their hands on the Fallout franchise, they are still only a subsidiary of ZeniMax, a company with shareholders who want to see as big a return on their investment as possible. In the end, it's their call, not Bethesda's.

    The question is if Obsidian would want to subject themselves to the Bethesda treatment again.
