    Bethesda teasing something Fallout related (UPDATE) It's Fallout 76

    Bethesda has a "Please stand by" being projected on a wall while a Vault Boy bobblehead sleeps, among other things that have happened throughout the day. https://www.twitch.tv/bethesda

    My guesses on what it is are as follows from most wanted to least.

    A new Fallout by Obsidian
    Fallout 1 and 2 on Tablets
    A surprise new Fallout 4 expansion
    Fallout 3 Remastered (Most likely tbh. It is gonna be it's 10 year anniversary)
    Fallout 4 on Switch
    Fallout 5
    Fallout Shelter Stuff












    Fallout Battle Royale.

    FO4 on Switch/FO3 remaster sounds about right given it's not been that long since FO4 was released.

    Other possible left-field choices:

    FO1 in the FO3 engine
    FO3 in the FO1 engine
    FO3 retconning a nuclear Trumpocalypse into the franchise lore
    FalloutDogs: like Nintendogs, but if they sprouted extra limbs and/or glowed in the dark from radiation exposure

    Apparently it's being worked on in conjunction with Battlecry studios, who was working on an MP shooter that got canned by Bethesda as well as help with the MP component of Doom 2016 (aka the weakest part of an otherwise excellent game)

    Now I've defended Bethesda's Fallout games in the past, I mean I'm a pleb who actually really likes Fallout 4, but this, I dunno.

    So some flavour of Fallout Online, eh. Well, at least now the NMA crowd can have a new radioactive cesspit to spitball people from.

    This will almost be worth it just to see how salty NMA gets over this, since they pretty much hate anything Bethesda does.

    If they are going to do one of those survival games, they are at least one bandwagon behind.

    Fallout Survive.

    To be fair it'll probably still be better than Metal Gear Survive, as low of a bar as that is.

    76? Like in Interstate 76? And there's a jeep and a motorbike toy in one shot? And "Country Roads"? As in roads that you DRIVE ON?

    I hope there's gonna be cars.

    Tho if it's indeed a multiplayer thingy, as rumored, I'm not all that interested in it.

    I won't mind if all this MP stuff is meant to keep the company in good shape financially while they make proper single player experiences, but there's no way to no for certain if that's the case, regardless of what they will say at E3.

    If it helps bankroll more Arkane games I'm onboard.

    This thread made me watch the original Fallout 3 teaser trailer - it gave me chills. I can't believe that was over 10 years ago.

    This. Arkane is the closest thing we have to Looking Glass Studios in the AAA scene.

    Yes, can't wait for Prey MOBA and Dishonored Battle Royale.

    FO76? No thanks. I'll be playing FO New California (in a couple months after the bugs have been eradicated) instead.

    Played for ~1.5 hours. It's MP Fallout 4 with shallow questing, what's there to say? At least they're handcrafted quests and not some procedurally generated "your settlement is under attack" bullshit. The Fallout 4 mod to disable Preston Garvey Radiant quests was a godsend.

    Navigation of the various menus was awful, hugely keyboard oriented, requiring you to use arrow keys at times. Even Ubisoft menus can be pretty much navigated completely with a mouse in recent times. After a decade of crap consolised menus I doubt they're gonna change now.

    I love Bethesda's games but the impressions I'm getting from this scream (Get it on sale or as a birthday gift), rather than spend my own money on it. Like I'm sure it will be fun but doesn't really seem like it provides what I go to a Fallout game for.

    The game is okay.

    As usual Bethesda's environmental storytelling is absolutely on point. You had better like that aspect of their game design because there's no traditional RPG main storyline, the entire game is side-quests where you read flavour text and listen to audio logs.

    The MMO-esque world events repeating ad infinitum is a huge immersion breaker. I tried to do one world event where you escort a Mr. Handy but he couldn't pathfind around a rock and then turned invisible. Bugthesda, Bugthesda never changes.

    They need to rebalance hunger and thirst meters, the rate at which thirst in particular degrades is ridiculous. I don't recall the survival meters in Hardcore Mode of New Vegas being as ridiculous as they are in 76.

    It's an adequate timesink, chill out game. Perfect for unwinding with a podcast playing. As it stands I rate it higher than Zelda: Bored of the Wild because the world Bethesda has crafted is highly intriguing IMO.

    LMAO, modders have gotten Fallout 4 mods working with the FO76 beta.
    https://www.tweaktown.com/news/63727...der/index.html

    This game is pretty much the equivalent of a Metal Gear Survive cash grab.

    The Scorchbeasts look like they're copypasta of the dragons from Skyrim.

    So why did we have a week of beta periods again? Checkmate, Atheist.
