Hoping for a Fallout 3 remaster as I never played but loved Fallout 4

New Vegas 2 would be awesome. Any of the above suggestions would be good though, I love the franchise and whatever it is will likely be a day one purchase for me.

Rumors are that it may be a Fallout online like Elder scrolls online, whether that is what it will be who knows, Elder scrolls is doing well now even though it took them a fair bit of time to get there, so a fallout online is not a huge surprise if that is whet it ends up being.

Hmm, I wasn't very impressed with ESO, and I could see a Rust-inspired Fallout being a griefers paradise... Maybe if we can play as non-humans, i'd enjoy being a deathclaw, but I'm struggling to imagine people playing as "settlers" surviving against hordes of ganking "bandits".

Gonna be a busy few months, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Battlefield V (Snowflake edition), Red Dead 2 and now Fallout 76!

Multi-player doesn't really appeal, as the wasteland has enough aholes in it without some real ones. The whole control of nuclear weapons should be fun, not so much though if you've just built your dream settlement and some B'stard drops a nuke on it....:)

I've watched the trailer and the Eurogamer piece, "15 things about Fallout 76" and whilst there's a small part of me that's excited for a new Fallout (style) game there's a large part of me that thinks it's not going to be much more than a griefer's paradise and is therefore completely meh about it. I'm obviously too old for this sheet.

The online part makes me apprehensive, I guess I'll take a view when I've seen more gameplay.

So Bethesda have confirmed you can't play offline and no single player. Plus 12 players per map. Balls. Think I might pass...

Watch "Todd Howard Says Fallout 76 Can't Be Played Offline, Has Modding, & Different Type Of Storytelling" on YouTube


If you're into building settlements and such you might as well forget about it, because as sure as sh*t as soon as you complete it some dipsh*t will drop a nuke on it...

I'm assuming (hoping) Bethesda will be cleverer than that.

If it's peer-to-peer, i wonder if you can do something like other games: edit your router settings to basically block non-server info, so essentially other players will never join, and you'll be "online" by yourself?
Might defeat the point of the game though o_O

I’m interested, most of my regular PS buddies are interested so it looks like sCud will have some form of presence in this game.

If there's only 12 players per map, then IMHO there's no real reason players should be able to attack each other. Hopefully it'll have more of a co-op feel where players just face a common enemy, eg, Deathclaws, bandits or whatever. If players want to team up or go lone wolf or build settlements then it's all okay, they're just can't attack each other.

There could also be "free-for-all" games where anything goes that would suit some people but on their own heads be it for the consequences.

I think that all sounds great in theory however unless you're in group of 12 that know and respect that approach, it's just wishful thinking that other players will abide by some unwritten rule of conduct, all the time.
The human condition means that someone will just get pissed off some day due to whatever first world problems they have and just flick the switch, and probably on the biggest settlement they can find. Just for sh*ts and jiggles;)

Once we get further details it may pan out that the whole control of nuclear launches isn't as easy as it sounds, and that there are some defensive measures you can employee on your settlements such as surfaces to air missiles:love:

I'm sure i saw in the trailer that one source for obtaining nuclear code came from attacking and killing another player....

You can nuke locations and if a player(s) have a base in that location it's good bye base. Also when a nuke goes off the area has a limited number of rare resources to collect so everyone will make a push to that area.

I love most of the single player games Bethesda make but didn't like ESO so might give this a miss also. I will wait until after release and see what you lot say about it.

Just had a notification that my fallout 76 preorder is arriving from Game via yodel tomorrow. I'm guessing the servers won't be live until release day so they don't care about shipping early.

Good luck with that arriving from Yodel - it will probably go via Timbuktu and take 3 weeks to deliver.

Yeah unfortunately I'm starting to understand that.

Game "Your ORDER is now with our courier Yodel and is due to be delivered TOMORROW.
Yodel will provide you with a two-hour delivery window notification by text and/or email tomorrow, usually before midday."

Yodel "Your parcel will be with us soon"

Fml.

I had an urge to click the 'funny' rating on that, but unfortunately with yodel it's probably true. :(
I now can't decide between 'agree' or 'useful' though! :laugh:

That gets a funny though.

Yodel are the absolute worst courier company in the country. When you have to change your name to escape the bad blood from your previous company you know your doing bad.
