"In October 2012, ZeniMax opened Battlecry Studios as part of their Bethesda Softworks subsidiary. But since then, we’ve pretty much heard nothing. So here’s what we were able to dig up." - PSLS
CryEngine? This could be interesting.
I call bullshit on this one. Cryengine is great and all but has one big limitation. Map size. It is not possible to create openworld games using CryEngine, unless you want long ass loading screens here and there. Ive worked long enough with CryEngine to know that. Dont get me wrong, its an amazing engine that provides great graphics (especially PC). But openworld? No way.
I disagree. :P Aion is MMO built on Cryengine. Released a few years ago.
It doesn't need huge maps. Open world games can easily consist of smaller maps put together a la Stalker or borderlands or even the first Crysis (kind of). Clever map design can create a large play space that is confined through natural geographic borders that make sense, while also creating and taking advantage of vertical space. This can be seen to good effect in games that don't have map size issues such as Skyrim, or in games that have clearly limited space options such as Stalker. Point is engine limitations can often be overcome with clever game and map design.
If done right I wouldn't mind a fallout mmo. Though I wouldn't mind a new IP MMO either. I do have mix feeling about being F2P. I don't mind it being F2P but this type of model usually gets ruin by gold spammers, bots or hackers.
I completely forgot about Battlecry! A Fallout MMO could be interesting.
They were crying silently
Free to play is cool
This is confirmed F2P? Huh, hadn't heard that before. Neat.
Can't believe how much focus MMO's are getting next gen. It's pretty awesome. FPS was the main focus of this gen, so hopefully MMO's will be the main focus for next gen.
id rather have a single player offline experience then an mmo. fallout wont be the same game as an mmo. doubt you will be able to loot like you do in the current fallout games
How about having a choice?
you wont you will have to be online and it wont even feel the same like in the single player games. you wont feel like you are a lone ranger exploring and finding civiliations and vaults in the middle of nowhere. the fact alone that there will be tons of other real life players walking around shows that. I dont even have to go any deeper beyond that.
Wow, lots of MMO coming out for the next gens, look like we are going to play games from the net after all, from the PC or steam or PS4 if they ever catch up to that technology, or the Xbox One ?? Mmmm . Nah, I wanna go back to cartridges .!
