AFP, SAN FRANCISCO

Bethesda has promised to debut a highly anticipated new installment in its Fallout post-apocalyptic action game franchise.

“We know what this game means to everyone,” game director Todd Howard said in a news release. “The time and technology have allowed us to be more ambitious than ever.”

In keeping with years past, the day before E3 officially opens was to be packed with theatrical media events revealing scenes from new versions of much-loved games on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or Wii U consoles.

Top-selling game franchises promoting new installments are to include Batman, Assassin’s Creed, Mass Effect and Call of Duty.

“You are going to see more of the same, only better,” Steinberg said of game makers’ trend toward safe bets on franchises with strong followings.
