When Skyrim was first released back in 2011, the fantasy RPG racked up 7 million sales in its first week of availability. Four years is a long time but the game is still massively popular on PC in particular, thanks to its large modding community. On the other hand, Fallout 4 had rumours and speculation surrounding it well before the official announcement, which has made it one of, if not the, most highly anticipated games of the year.
But can the post-apocalyptic RPG sell better than Bethesda’s Fus-Ro-Dah-ing title? Or will it the controversy surrounding its graphics and the suggestions of the game just being Fallout 3 on newer consoles bury it? Bethesda’s vice president of PR and marketing, Pete Hines, has every faith that Fallout 4 can beat Skyrim, as he reveals in a new interview.
