Since 76 was one of the control Vaults and not deliberately sabotaged by Vault-Tec, I'm sure everything went fine and we are in for a game of "Utopia Walking Simulator".  awesome, for real

Naw, I expect it to be a rebuild and survive thing rather than world exploration

but that's fine because one appalachian vista is the same as the next one

It's multiplayer so I expect it to be a bit of a Overawatch, a bit of a Battle Royale, and a bit of Mario Kart.

I am interested by default, but I am not too hopeful for some reason.

Where'd you hear that it was multiplayer?

Rumors floating all over reddit that its going to be online base building a la RUST/Conan?etc.

I'm not sure what I think about that.

"Integrated Online functionality" is going to turn out to mean "no mods except thru Creation Club"

I think this is definitely going to be Conan Exiles but Fallout if Kotaku can be believed. That could actually be pretty cool if you think about it and if they do it well. I also doubt mods will only be creation club. They'll keep pushing that shit but they've learned that the fanbase will rise up if they don't allow "real" mods. They've actually got a real reason to do it since Conan Exiles does and the last thing they want is to see news stories about Funcom taking over the mod friendly space online or something.

It makes sense. The base building component from 4 likely gave them a very solid foundation for porting those ideas into a multiplayer framework. It has potential to be one of the best versions of these games, if it turns out to be in that style. The 'new' mmo games.

I mean they probably won't screw it up? They generally succeed in what they're trying to do though it doesn't speak at all to the actual quality of the design itself.

I don't think they've had the time or devoted the resources to that.

I'm thinking a more expanded settlement system (with fewer settlements, perhaps even one, but with a lot more to build and create), which is pretty unique to you (and perhaps people you invite), and then either solo or group "raids" into the very dangerous wastelands for salvage and loot.

And by "raids" I mean "4 person teams, built around console limitations".

So this appeared on r/Fallout.

Quote from: r/Fallout
Hi. I'm Jason Schreier, from Kotaku. I had forgotten how... passionate the Fallout community can get. After I reported on Fallout 4's existence in 2013, people here first spent two years calling me a liar, and then when it was confirmed, they just yelled at me for "spoiling the surprise." But hey, I'm also a big fan of the series, and in fact may or may not have just started replaying Fallout 4 on my PC in the wake of this week's news.

I've seen a lot of rage and confusion (and denial) on this subreddit so I just wanted to chime in to say a couple of things. One is that, after publishing my story, I heard from a few other sources (in addition to the three mentioned in the article) corroborating that Fallout 76 is an online game. If you're really still in denial, I guess you can wait until June 10, but hey, don't say I didn't tell you.

The second thing is that I'm very optimistic about this game. The buzz I'm hearing (both first- and second-hand) is that it's really cool, interesting, and just as story-focused as any other Bethesda Game Studios game. It might have multiplayer and base-building, but hey, it's still a Fallout game. I don't want to drive hype for a game I haven't seen or played, but I also don't want people to be so closed-minded that they spend the next nine days freaking out every day on Reddit because this game isn't going to be like the last three.

I mean, how many of you remember when hardcore Fallout fans flipped a shit because Bethesda was making a first-person shooter?

I think that in retrospect I shouldn't have tweeted that anyone expecting a traditional single-player Fallout will be "very disappointed" -- really, I should have said that they'll be very surprised. I wanted (and still want) to make sure people's expectations are calibrated accordingly.

Short version: Yes, Fallout 76 is going to be a multiplayer RPG. No, that's not automatically a bad thing. Just like all of you, I'm stoked to see the game on June 10, and I'm optimistic that it's going to be really cool.

(PS - Special shoutout to those of you who AREN'T sending me nasty and antisemitic messages on Twitter!)


Seems the community had a predictably Internet reaction to the news that the next Fallout game is going to change things up a bit.

Not directed at me, but...

The fact that their games tend to be among the buggiest games ever produced and overly reliant on the modding community to not only make right, but flesh out and into an actual game? I like a lot of their games but the idea of a multiplayer Fallout has me at zero interest. Granted, I'm not really into multiplayer anything these days, but even more so considering the people behind it.

Hell, Fallout 4, as an example for how they build games lately. Bad design decision after bad design decision on top of the usual Bethesda bug ridden mess.

I will admit Fallout 4 felt like a by the books low effort....effort.  Still, it had some unique mechanics that many people enjoyed, and was by no means a bad game if you enjoy Fallout games.  On a personal note, Iíve never ran into any sort of bugs in any of there games that got in the way of myself having fun.  Like, Iíll see something wierd like a graphics bug or a guy dying in some wierd position thatís obviously a bug.  But l just laugh at that and keep moving.

I pretty much have played all of the Bethesda games unmodded and have enjoyed them.  I tried a bunch of mods on Skyrim after playing through it for the Xíteenth time, which was a lot of fun, but Iíd already but over a hundred hours into it before that.

So while Iím sure your criticisms are probably valid since I hear so many people repeat them, theyíve just personally never really effected me.

I started a series replay (skipping 3 for reasons) a couple of weeks ago. Up to New Vegas now, but I had sooo much fun rediscovering the 2D ones. 1 was a bit annoying interface-wise (so many small things they fixed in the sequel), but 2 held up great especially with high res support patched in.

Yeah, I've liked all the Fallout games, and don't remember hitting a game breaking bug in any of them. Also, the modding community is a feature, not a failing.

I would like to slam this next one for "following the current fad" or whatever, but the fact is I love the fad. I just spent two evenings in Conan Exiles trying to get the roof of my manor house just right, and I'm already imagining how fun it's going to be using Fallout style building blocks to make my own post apocalyptic fort.

Looking forward to the F13 server!

Conan Exiles as a Bethesda Fallout game server is as close to Nirvana as I can imagine right now. 

Which means it wont happen.  But hey, dreams.
