In previous iterations of Fallout, gamers have had to go through many hoops just to keep our trust companion Dogmeat alive. In many instances, he seemed to actively seek out danger. In order to assuage our fears for his fate in Fallout 4, Bethesda has already come out to say that Dogmeat cannot die this time around.

This is great news for those who planned on making sure you saved the dog, and saved yourself some tears if he did die (me, really).
Fallout 4 will be releasing on November 10, 2015 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
