New Fallout 4 Character Romance Details Emerge From QuakeCon

QuakeCon 2015 attendees were privy to an exclusive presentation of Fallout 4 this afternoon, and Bethesda Studios head Todd Howard took the opportunity to share some important new details about the game.

First up is the news that Fallout 4 will include 12 companions who can join you on your journey. You can even romance them, regardless of their gender. 

In addition, Howard discussed the naming of your character, and proclaimed that they've selected over 1,000 names that include both common real names as well as names that Bethesda believes its player may use, even in jest. By way of example, Howard proclaims that if you want to call your character F---face, that option is available to you, and the game will use that name in dialogue and conversations.

We also learned that Fallout Shelter is no longer an iOS exclusive -- it's on the way to Android as well on August 13.  

We'll continue to update with additional details as they emerge from the presentation.
