Fallout 4 will launch on November 10, publisher Bethesda announced tonight during its E3 2015 briefing. The game is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The release date was revealed at Bethesda's E3 press conference, where a lengthy gameplay trailer was also shown. You can watch that below.

A 2015 release date is not exactly a surprise, given that Bethesda's own online store (and other retailer websites) listed the game as coming sometime in 2015.

Bethesda's E3 briefing tonight also brought news of a Fallout 4 Pip-Boy edition, a Fallout mobile game, and more. Check out our complete coverage for everything you need to know.

We'll have more on Fallout 4 later this week as E3 continues. For all the other news announced during the event, use our Bethesda E3 2015 press conference news round-up to get up-to-speed.

Dang, i'm stunned. I was expecting a release early - mid next year. Not this year.

Still, its Fallout 4, so shut up and take my money! (And yes, I know there will be bugs, I can live with them.)

Wow the graphics really put me off. Which year are we in? Bethsoft really is incompetent. This looks leaps and bounds uncomparable to Witcher3.

@archav3n: lol...don't worry, I'm sure Bethesda will put 300 bugs in the game just to try to keep pace with Witcher...fanoboys...lol

November never seemed so far away.

I just hope it doesn't catch a case of the delay's!

Like always I'll be getting it for PC. Can't imagine playing this on consoles.

So it will be november 2016 after many patches when it will be playable. ;)

@Dumper1: Hardy har har, yes all open world games have bug, but playable? This game will be more than playable at release. The only game in recent memory that wasn't playable at release was battlefield 4.

Tell me something honestly...Are Bethesda's games even worth buying without mods? Are the games even great without mods? Most people tell me their games are utter bollocks without mods.

@Navardo95: 100%, most mods just add small things, like make the graphics better or add more weapons, enemies or armors. There aren't many that are a full-fledged restructure or that add a huge amount of content to the game. Modded Bethesda games are 100% better, but the core game is still and always has been great.

Release date is SUSPICIOUSLY short....AC Unity/AC3 anyone? Considering bethesda's reputation I have no doubt this game will packed to the gills with game breaking bugs.

@Navardo95: Supposedly they were working on it at the same time Obsidian was wrapping up Fallout: New Vegas. What concerns me is that this was started on the previous console generation, and brought up to current.

But, its Bethesda...there will be bugs.

Wonder if this will get a Wii U version I am asking because that is the only system I have right now and my pc sucks

@daff3ww:

The PS3 and X360 can't run it, so unfortunately no the WiiU will not be able to play this title.

@daff3ww: So you want your Wii U to turn into a spaghetti trying to handle this game? Good luck

Well Bethesda really kept Fallout 4 a good secret, that's all I can imagine If they're releasing it this year and I wonder how long they've been working on it?

If anything though don't be surprised If we see a delay but tbh F04 has no reason to have to delay because it will be the main stand out game of November.

This is so much more than I expected from Bethesda. They went above and beyond this time. You can play Simcity with your settlements and weapon mod system looks amazing. I didn't think I could be more hyped for Fallout 4, but I am now. Between this and Persona 5 this year will be amazing for me as far as games go.

The thing I like the most about their presentation is that it's not speculation of what the game might be. They showed you. I can't remember the last time I got this excited for a game (then again I do recall being pretty hype off that very first Skyrim teaser trailer that showed absolutely nothing lol).

So that means I'll be buying it on November 10th 2016.

They might have half the bugs fixed by then.

@mori70: they aid that you could stay in 1st person. I feel kind of the same way about the voiced dialogue it'd be nice to have the option to turn it off. Then again they spent all that money on dialogue, sound editing, and studio time so it my not be optional lol

Coming out in Nov ? Give it 3 months after that date for the patches to come out and until then, the game would probably deem unplayable! Given the track records of the pass fallout franchise and the complex of new algorithm of the next Gen ( Look at Witcher 3 !!), anyone without patience will get burned.

pretty good not super earth shattering though..........

As for you graphics whore, it's a huge open world. You can't expect ultra graphics with no loading screens in an open world. Even Witcher III couldn't do it and Fallout 4 is even bigger than that.

@hmoobpaladin: I think the game looks good, certainly better than any modded Fallout New Vegas.

@hmoobpaladin: who said its bigger than witcher 3?

Okay, not gonna lie, i was a skeptic, still unsure about the voice protagonist and going the ME route, however, that'll be different for everyone, what was shown is MUCH better and MUCH more of what i was hoping for.

I am a believer now.

GIVE ME MY FALLLLLOUT!

How will it run on consoles at launch? Do I have to fear it being a mess like Skyrim was on PS3?

@Yomigaeru: with the ps4 being closer in architecture to pc, hopefully things will be more stable this time around.

This is just so exciting. I had a blast with Fallout 3, and this looks bigger, better, incredibly customizable, and with a setting near and dear to my heart... This game's a must buy for me. Thank goodness The Witched 3 is so fantastic - will make the wait less painful

The only contender for this game is Deus Ex Mankind Divided, at least for me.

@Lu_Shen: They don't announce until they are almost done. They said 11/11/11 for Skyrim, and it came on that day.
