Get set for a new dose of Fallout
War never changes, but time and technology have allowed the creators of the next instalment in the Fallout series to be "more ambitious than ever". Details about the role-playing shooter game are expected to be revealed later this month.

Bethesda Game Studios on Wednesday confirmed that it is preparing to launch a keenly anticipated new instalment of the blockbuster Fallout video-game franchise.

A trailer for Fallout 4 posted on YouTube revealed few details about the role-playing shooter game, but featured its trademark mix of 1950s Americana and a post-nuclear apocalypse.

"We know what this game means to everyone," said game director Todd Howard.

"Time and technology have allowed us to be more ambitious than ever."

While a video trailer at provided only an enigmatic glimpse of the game, details are expected to be revealed at a press event being held by Bethesda at the major E3 video-game industry gathering in Los Angeles later this month.

The new instalment follows Fallout 3, which earned game-of-the-year accolades after its release in 2008, and a Fallout New Vegas spin-off two years later.

Versions of Fallout 4 are being tailored for play on Microsoft Xbox One and Sony PlayStation 4 consoles, as well as on personal computers powered by Windows software.
