The long-awaited teaser trailer for Bethesda's upcoming role-playing game Fallout 3 is now showing on Eurogamer TV.

It's an atmospheric introduction to the apocalyptic setting, showing a world destroyed by nuclear war. As the trailer unfolds and the camera angle pans out, we eventually set eyes on a soldier head-to-toe in combat gear, who tells us, "War. War never changes."

The trailer also uncovers fresh news that the game will be out in autumn 2008, and it's conceivable that the graphics shown could be rendered on top-end PCs a year from now.

There's still no word on the platforms the game is planned for, but PC and next-generation consoles are a safe bet.

Although this will be the third game in post-apocalyptic series, it's also the first Fallout game developed by the award winning Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion team. Bethesda bought the licence to the series from Interplay in 2004 and hopes it can produce a worthy successor to the two very popular previous instalments from the late '90s.
