Fallout 4 is an action RPG taking place in a post-apocalyptic world, and is the fifth major installment in the Fallout series, though the first to be released on eighth generation consoles. Players explore the open-world environment of Boston city and its surrounding area of Massachusetts, battling against both human enemies as well as mutants and robots. The game adds a crafting aspect known as base-building, and returns the feature of playing in either first or third-person.
Taking place in the year 2287, ten years following the events of Fallout 3, and two centuries after the Great War between the United States and China which ended in a nuclear holocaust, the player-character is tricked into entering cryogenic tubes and frozen alive in Vault 111, along with his wife and son. After being reawakened by two strangers, he learns that his wife has been murdered and son is kidnapped. After returning to cryogenic sleep, he is awakened again following a malfunction in the support system. Discovering he is the sole survivor of Vault 111, he sets out to avenge his spouse's death and find his son.
Fallout 4 received positive reviews with an average score of 88%, praised for its story, vast amount of content, and improved combat system, though criticized by some for its visuals and bugs.
I've you've played gotten the Platinum on either Fallout 3 or Fallout: New Vegas on the PS3, then you should have a good idea of what to expect. The game is not particularly difficult, only time-consuming. There are a vast number of missions to complete, enemies to defeat, collectibles to find, and a few other miscellaneous challenges, on your road to the Platinum. The Platinum can be earned after one playthrough with some mopping-up afterwards, if a few strategic saves are made.
Expect around 70-80 hours minimum for the Platinum, though more if you are taking your time exploring and performing more side-missions than necessary.
The faction-related trophies follow a similar fashion to Fallout: New Vegas, in that siding with one faction will eliminate the chances of siding with another. This means that not all the trophies can be unlocked in a single, straight-forward playthrough. However, like Fallout: New Vegas, the issue with missable trophies can easily be avoided by making some strategic saves.
With that in mind, we recommend beginning with simply playing through and enjoying the story. As you start working through the faction quests, you'll eventually receive a warning that your next decision will make another faction hostile to you. It is here where you'll want to make an extra save. Then, continue playing through and unlocking all the trophies related to that faction. Once completed, reload your previous save and head on to another faction.
Aside from the faction-related trophies, there are no other missable trophies in the game. As you play however, you'll want to hack every terminal you come across to work towards the RoboCo's Worst Nightmare trophy, and pick every lock for the What's Yours Is Mine trophy.
Once you've completed the main story and gotten all the faction-related trophies, it's time to mop-up. You'll need to find a total of 20 bobbleheads for the They're Action Figures trophy, find and read 20 magazines for the Print's Not Dead trophy, discover 100 locations for the Ranger Corps trophy, and a number of other miscellaneous ones which you may or may not have unlocked during your playthrough.
