Bethesda Hosting Fallout 4 Panel at GDC 2016


Bethesda’s critically acclaimed Fallout 4 is coming to GDC 2016. In a session entitled “Fallout 4’s Modular Level Design,” senior designer Joel Burgess and lead artist Nathan Purkeypile will provide “an in-depth analysis of the techniques used to create art kits, the level design workflow which takes advantage of them, and the production approach which empowers a relatively small content team to make an enormous world.”

Applying to more than just Fallout 4, the session’s stated takeaway is for attendees to “learn specific techniques for creating a system of modular assets” while giving insight into Bethesda Game Studios’ larger developmental philosophies and processes. We gave Fallout 4 a 9.5 and called it “a must-play for any RPG fan,” so naturally we’re excited to hear any tips on game design Bethesda has to share with the industry.
