Superdog: Fallout 4's Dogmeat Can't Die

LIVE, BUDDY!

Todd Howard has shared a lot of information about Fallout 4 [official site] so far this E3, but this latest titbit is easily the most important of the lot. Your faithful dog companion will never die. Despite the world being transformed into a nuclear wasteland, this makes Fallout 4's universe the most beautiful of all the universes.

Dogmeat was notorious for getting himself killed in Fallout 3, so it's nice to know we won't need to worry about any such heartbreak in Fallout 4. The new dog has a few other tricks to go along with his indestructibility. Send him out to scout areas and retrieve objects for you, just as we saw in the Fallout 4 demo during Bethesda’s press conference.

What do you mean you missed the Fallout 4 demo at Bethesda’s press conference? You'll need to fix that immediately. Look, it's right here. Carve out 30 minutes from your day, make a cup of tea and enjoy the show. In fact, even if you've already seen it, it’s definitely worth a second look.

The game itself is due on November 10th.
