Will Fallout 4 be a bigger hit than Skyrim?
It’s no secret that gamers have been waiting impatiently for the release of Fallout 4. The video game series has legions of dedicated fans, just waiting to dust off their 10mm SMG’s and travel the Wasteland once again, seeking action and adventure.
In a few short months, the game will launch (November 10, 2015 to be exact). And like a Fat Man nuking a mob of Super Mutants, Fallout 4 will surely be a smashing success.

Fallout 4 Bigger Than Skyrim
How big a hit will the game be? Well, according to Pete Hines, Bethesda’s VP of Marketing, Fallout 4 could be bigger than Skyrim. In an interview given to MVC last week, Hines said:
I think this can top Skyrim. It could be our biggest release ever. But we will see. It is part of my job to build the megaphone that we hold up to the game, and the game decides how loud it goes. Just how big it is going to be is hard to say. Skyrim was a massively big deal.
And Skyrim was a massively big deal. Winner of over 200 game of the year awards, Skyrim became Bethesda’s biggest hit ever, winning over Elder Scrolls fans and critics alike. The game is still enjoyed by gamers worldwide, despite the fact of being almost 4 years old (a lifetime in video game years).
But can Fallout 4 top a game that’s defined a generation? Hines seems to think so, and he’s in a position to know better than just about anyone.
Reasons It Could Be Bigger
The game will undoubtedly be spectacular, but here are four things Fallout 4 has going for it that may actually help it trump Skyrim:
- Open-world building system.
- Next-generation Creation Engine.
- No level cap.
- Console modding.
Eventually time will tell, but Fallout 4 appears to have the muscle to actually be a bigger hit than Skyrim, taking the lead as Bethesda’s most successful game ever.
