5 Likely April Fool's Rumors You Should Preemptively Discard
Fallout 4 AnnouncedBethesda has announced Fallout 4 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS4, PS3 and PC. The latest sequel to the post-apocalyptic RPG series will put players in charge of a Brotherhood of Steel enclave and allow them to build a custom base. Players can explore the wastelands formerly known as Massachusetts using driveable cars and aircraft. They can also import their saves from Fallout 3 to affect the storyline in dramatic ways.
"Fallout 4 is almost here," said Bethesda's vice president of PR Pete Hines. "The game will be out on all platforms on YOUR BIRTHDAY!"
There are a lot of overdue game announcements this year. Fallout 4 is just one of the more prominent examples. Others include Half-Life 3 and Doom 4. When gamers get too excited for a game, they sometimes become a little too eager to believe dubious rumors. In the case of Fallout 4, thousands of fans were misled by a supposed teaser website last fall. Then, a month later, many were fooled by an alleged announcement email.
You should be skeptical of every piece of good news released on April 1st. Be even more skeptical, though, of really good news like a long-awaited game being announced with every dream feature imaginable. There are people shitty enough to take advantage of your hope for cheap laughs at your expense.
