Fallout 4 is real, it's gorgeous and it's coming out November 10. You've seen the announcement trailer for the next big installment of the post-apocalyptic RPG series, but developer Bethesda went into plenty of in-depth details about Fallout 4 during its press conference at E3.

Without a doubt, Fallout 4 is going to be one of the most hyped-up games of the year, with Bethesda taking us to the wasteland of Boston for its biggest open-world adventure yet. Here is everything we learned about the game at this year's E3.

The Game Starts Before The Bombs Fall

Fallout has always taken place after a global thermo-nuclear war decimates the world, turning it into an irradiated wasteland filled with ghouls, mutants and radscorpions. Fallout 4 will mix things up a bit by having players start the game on a bright sunny day before the bombs drop.

Your Character Will Have A Voice
 

Player characters in the Fallout series have been silent up to this point, but Bethesda is changing that for Fallout 4. Similar to games like Mass Effect or Dragon Age, players will pick dialogue options that serve as a general tone for what the player character will say. Conversations will also be dynamic, meaning players can walk away – or even pull a gun and blow an NPC away – mid-conversation. Players will create their unique character at the beginning of the game, in front of a mirror.

V.A.T.S. Is Back
 

The "pause and target" gameplay feature seen in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas is returning in Fallout 4, allowing players to drastically slow down time and target specific body parts on enemies. If you want to adopt a more run-and-gun approach, the first-person gunplay of Fallout 4 looks to be a major improvement over its predecessors.

Crafting Is A Major Part
 

Fallout and crafting have always gone hand-in-hand, but it looks like it will be an even larger part of Fallout 4. Players can craft and decorate entire base operations with the required supplies. Grab some power generators and you can even set up automated turrets to do your dirty work for you. You can also establish multiple bases and start a trade empire between them.

Just be sure to build defenses, as raiders will attempt to raid your strongholds. Personalizing your own suit of Power Armor is a new addition as well making its way into Fallout 4. Like in previous entries, players can still craft new weapons and weapon modifications from various items found throughout the wasteland.

Mods Are Coming To PC And (One) Console
 

Bethesda made it easy for players to mod its last game, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It is for this reason that Skyrim is still one of the most popular games on PC, as a creative and vibrant mod community is continually crafting new content for the more than four-year-old game.

It's no surprise, then, that Bethesda wants to make it easy for modders to work on PC in Fallout 4 as well. What is surprising is that those same mods will be coming to the Xbox One version of the game — allowing an even larger audience to customize game experience with user-created content.

While we learned a ton of new info, there's no doubt this is just the tip of the iceberg for a game the size of Fallout 4. Expect plenty more news in the months to come.

Fallout 4 launches on November 10 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
