After the huge success of Fallout 3, Bethesda’s Fallout series is considered to be one the most established and appreciated video game series in the gaming industry. All the fans of the series are waiting eagerly for the next installment in the series, that is Fallout 4.

Fallout 4 was basically the best game revealed at E3 2015, everyone was waiting for it as the last game in the series came out in 2010. But it was a huge surprise for everyone attending the show as it wasn’t expected to be announced for atleast another year.

2 months after E3, pre-development demo gameplay footage for Fallout 4 was presented at Gamescom, but it was not meant to be released worldwide. The footage was only meant to be seen by the audience attending Gamescom, although in this day and age nothing can stay a secret for long, hence the video of the event was captured by an attendee and uploaded on the Internet.


The footage was first uploaded (out of all sites) on the pornographic website, then as a counter measure by Bethesda it was obviously removed fairly quickly, then the video was tried to be kept alive by copying it and posting at many other video hosting websites, but Bethesda kept removing it and now it is really hard to find it anywhere on the internet. But you shouldn’t sweat looking for that video as I will try to describe the contents to be found in the footage to the best of my ability.

First of all I should let you know that the entire presentation is in German, so even if you get your hands on to that video it’s not going to be too much fun.

So here we go, the first thing that we are introduced with in any fallout game is the perks menu, that tradition still holds in Fallout 4. The perks menu contains small, cartoony fallout boys that look similar to the characters in the popular android and ios game Fallout Shelter.




The leaked footage mainly focuses on showing off the basic combat of the game, first person shooting, aiming down sites and just a little bit of VATS (the popular attacking game mechanic in the fallout series).

Basic enemy types like ghouls and raiders can be seen attacking the player.

The newest addition to the Fallout series that is the companion dog, is seen attacking enemies and helping the player out by finding supplies and ammo.

The comeback of the hacking minigame from fallout 3 is also shown as the player enters a super mart. Nothing new here, the hacking system stays almost identical to the hack mini game in fallout 3. After hacking, the player then unlocks a safe that allows him to wear a wasteland outfit / armor.

Then the demo mostly showcased different types of weapons that can be used in the game, including a flamethrower, a sniper rifle, a laser carbine and so on.

Right now the game looks to be more like a first person shooter than it has been in the past, and that is a good thing.

That concludes everything that I could gather from the leaked demo.

I am not one to say if this was an actual leak or the footage was just released as a publicity stunt to create hype for the game and gather the consumer’s attention.

Whatever this may be, the video certainly made me appreciate the game even more and now I am waiting to get my hands on the game as soon as possible.
