The hotly anticipated released of Fallout 4 is now less than a week away. I had at least six copies of a local magazine with an advert telling me so thrust into my hand on the way to work this morning. There’s also an awesome bus ad that a Redditor spotted driving around London.

That makes it official.

Today, game developer Bethesda has released its launch trailer which gives us a tantalising look at what a totalled Boston might look like. We’re all in agreement, it looks good (sorry, Boston, we still think you’re awesome. Go Sox!)

Comments beneath the official video are, unsurprisingly, ecstatic.

At one point we had tears, and talk of trying to divide up their time between gaming and being a father.

Along with the new trailer, there’s an official app that connects with your copy of the game to view your stats, available on iOS and Android.  

However, we’re more excited about Twitter user Neven Mrgan’s unofficial Apple Watch face that you can download instead of the slightly crappy looking limited collector’s edition wrist computer.
