Look, I know it’s still four weeks to go but if you’re anything like me then you can’t wait to hop into Fallout 4 at the earliest opportunity possible. Anything less than the release minute just won’t do. Well, alongside the Fallout 4 system requirements which were disclosed yesterday, Bethesda has also detail the exact times each and every one of you can begin playing worldwide.
First things first, the release date. Fallout 4 is out on November 10th worldwide. Except, that is, Asia, where it arrives on November 11th, and Japan, which is apparently a separate territory and has to wait until December 17th. Ouch. Get on the proxies Japanese GD’ers! Digitally Fallout 4 will be available at 12:01 AM on November 10th everywhere else. So New Zealanders will be the first to get Fallout 4, and Americans will be the last, if my knowledge of the globe is correct.
So to clarify, Fallout 4 will be available at 12:01 AM local time on Tuesday, November 10th. That means 12:01 AM EST in the US, 12:01 AM BST in the UK, and 12:01 DST+1300 UTC in New Zealand.
If previous staggered launches have been anything to go by, you should be able to use a New Zealand proxy to gain access early, but be warned this is against Steam’s terms and conditions, so do so entirely at your own risk.
That’s in then, not it’s just the wait until our Fallout 4 pre-loads can begin.
Are any of you holding out for Fallout 4 reviews before you pre-order? Or are you set on picking up Fallout 4 regardless?
