‘Fallout’ Anthology Announced At QuakeCon 2015; New Weather System Coming To ‘Fallout 4’

Pete Hines, Vice President of Bethesda, announced the new "Fallout" collection at the opening ceremony of the 2015 QuakeCon.

The new collection, which will be launched prior to "Fallout4," is called "Fallout" Anthology, according to Game Spot.

It is a PC collection that brings together five "Fallout" games, including "Fallout," "Fallout 2," "Fallout Tactics," "Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition" and "Fallout: New Vegas - Ultimate Edition."

It comes in a mini nuke with a special bomb sound effect. The exact size of the bomb was not revealed, but it was kind of big enough to shell five PC game discs.

Interestingly, Bethesda reserved a slot for "Fallout 4," so add one disc to the five mentioned earlier making it six discs. The reported price of this package was $50.

It will be released in North America on Sept. 29, as per IGN's report. Australia and Europe will have this collection on Oct. 1 and 2, respectively.

Meanwhile, "Fallout 4" will be introducing a new weather system. Project lead Todd Howard explained that there was a part of the world where the bomb falls, it is called Glowing Sea.

He described it as somewhat similar to the "Fallout 3" wasteland. This new weather system for "Fallout 4" will enable those radiation storms from the Glowing Sea to flare up.

Another innovation is the colors. The team said that they would like to do away with the environmental sameness which defined the previous "Fallout" so they will be focusing more on improving the building designs.

Howard pointed out that these innovations are ascribed to the added horsepower and creative freedom of the new systems. In short, the key to "Fallout 4" is memory.

Bigger memory can create more dynamic details. More importantly, tracking of the stream in will be easier and faster, and loading will be quicker.

Hines claims that "Fallout 4" is going to prioritize player freedom over graphics, and Howard's statement evidently supports that claim.
