I think it's great that they are thinking about all this extra stuff already. Typical Bethesda though, don't do things by halves! It's going to be great.
I am salivating right now!
I have NEVER played a fallout game. Do you recommend playing the first ones before playing Fallout 4? XoXoX
@XboxOneX A few things, Fallout 1 and 2 are completely different games. That's when I played, respected, and loved it, but then stopped at 3 because Bethesda—lacking integrity for the franchise—took it upon themselves to change the whole damn game into a ground-up first-person game with FPS elements (Yeah, you could switch to 3rd, but like their Elder Scrolls games, designed with FP in mind). With that said, APPARENTLY Fallout 4 has revamped its combat and gameplay for both FP AND third-person, and you can play the whole game comfortably in third, or so interviews and reports have stated. I am among a tiny, tiny group of people I think that hate that FO pretty much changed their whole game and went first-person, but for the previous reasons I may finally be returning for FO4. I say all of that crap because I'm not sure what type of player you are, if you'd want to tackle FO3, Vegas, or even the top-down old-school Fallout 1 and 2. So I say keep monitoring FO4 gameplay as more videos come out leading up to release, and jump right into 4 if you like it without playing the previous ones because if what they're saying is true and 4 is the "most accessible" to the broadest pool of player types, then 4 may be fitting for you. Sorry for the rant haha; I'm still bitter about FO3.
@XboxOneX, Fallout 3 is pretty awesome, even if some of the Fallout traditionalists didn't like it. It's basically Elder Scrolls in a post-nuclear futuristic setting and much deeper combat. That said, it will probably feel kind of old now. Maybe worth it if you can get it for cheap. I'd just wait for Fallout 4, given how close it is.
@XboxOneX You can easily start with 4 while you might miss some of the nods to the old fallouts each game is self contained. I'd say start with 4 if you like it then go for 3 and its expansions. 1 and 2 are totally different but the world has the same feel as 3(and I assume 4 from what Ive seen)
you all.. just learn that "war, war never changes" and your good to go to Fallout 4 :D on serious note, F1 and F2 are still playable if you like these kind of PC games, For me personally Fallout new Vegas was the best one.. F3 also is good fun.. dont forget about fallout tactics and new Wasteland 2 which is basically fallout 1,2 and tactics combined, with even more features and stuff to do... (created by original fallout people).. yet that magic Fallout universe is still unbeaten!
Started Fallout 3 again..... the buzz is building for this!
I started Fallout 3 for the first time the other day in preparation for Fallout 4, actually. I was surprised looking through my 'backlog' and found it. Sweet find indeed.. : D
Other company announces season pass: "I can't believe they're already thinking about extra stuff instead of polishing the damn game itself!" Bethesda announces season pass: "I think it's great that they are thinking about all this extra stuff already."
Cool about free updates like Skyrim, but not too crazy about the Season pass. I like to know what i'm buying before i pay for it.
That is a point, but it's inexpensive and I'm sure they'll be quality. Yes, I'm a Fallout fangirl! :P
Yeah after thinking it through, i think i'll buy the season pass but much later after launch. Bethesda has made some very excellent DLCs for Fallout 3 and Skyrim, so i have faith in them.
My fear is the paid for mods they said they were thinking about. Not to fond of that. These season passes, and DLC, I can conform to a bit. Price isn't the problem. The fact that you have to pay for so much extra stuff. In games like these I won't necessarily mind. But paid for mods. That I can't do.
They scrapped paid for mods like 2 weeks after they went live because of the backlash. That won't happen again. No one will go for it.
Was that a Steam thing or Bethesda?
They did scrap it on Steam, but Bethesda themselves said they are going to look into it again. http://www.idigitaltimes.co... After Fallout 4 mod kit comes out, they'll probably make that a standard. I don't know why people can even come to paying for mods. I'm very disappointed in developers and publishers putting things behind paywalls or behind bars. Modding was and should always stay free. Look at the sheer amount of content that Skyrim had, and they games before that. Anything on the Unreal or Quake engine had quite literally hundreds and thousands of mods.
It will be paid mods for consoles only probably. As sony or MS have to host them and get them on the consoles somehow, that's why they probably won't be free.
I did not know that thanks for the link. Honestly I wasnt too hateful about it but the only people I want to get paid are the people who spend time almost making another game/area. Someone who makes a weapons kit?? No you don't deserve money. I'm not saying it didn't take them awhile but those mods are a dime a dozen.
I'm ok with buying their season passes because of the content in the original game being so hefty. Also they said if they decide to do more dlc and you have the season pass you get it for free instead of buying another season pass like some games have done. I'll probably just wait to buy it because the games going to take me forever anyway but I always end up buying their dlc anyway.
...so do that then. No one is making you buy the season pass.
Yeah, I like the part where they say, and I'm paraphrasing, "Well, we don't know exactly WHAT we'll make for the season pass BUT it'll worth at least $40.." Makes me feel like I'd be getting a deal..
I don't see why they don't spit ball some ideas onto a page and say out all of these ideas this is what we might do. Maybe let people vote on what they want to see with big expansions and small.
Everyones up in arms about the season pass, this is fallout and its bethesda - i cant see the dlc being some half arsed skins and the usual crap you buy!! its all single player dlc!! its not map packs/skins/mp rubbish
I never really knew that people bought Season passes with actually wanting to know what is in them tbh. I usually just buy it and assume it will be great and always is.
Looking forward to this game so much! Glad they're thinking about the future as well as everything leading up to its release.
Good guy Bethesda! :D
As if 100+ hours wasn't enough, great work by Bethesda cannot wait to delve into Fallout 4
This game is literally going to take over my life. No more work, social life or even Christmas for that matter! Me, myself and Fallout 4!
"As if 100+ hours wasn't enough" no thats not enough, i spent near on 800 on fo3 lol
will there be any cutscenes in this game ?
Have you never played Fallout or Elder Scrolls?
no never hehe. Will it be or not ?
The original fallouts had cutscenes
Cut scenes, like in Skyrim, are at a minimum. Actually, I don't remember seeing any until the end
$30 season pass is worth it for how many DLCs this game will throw at us. Also, every DLC that Fallout has is pretty amazing. I've never been disappointed with any of them. Mothership Zeta for the win btw.
That alien blaster was so powerful back on earth lol. Disintegrated everything.
Team Point Lookout here!
I spent on and off 2 years getting the platinum then i bought all the dlcs for £7.99 each BUT i missed 1 collectable i think on Mothership Zeta so never got the 100% lol
How has nobody noticed that they just confirmed mods for PS4! "You'll be able to create your own mods and share them with others. We’re especially excited these same mods will then be coming to Xbox One, and then PlayStation 4." They had previously only said that they hoped to get them on the PS4, this is the first time it is confirmed. Super excited, even if it is after the Xbox One (wonder what that means....).
Well remember the xbox got all the dlc first for fallout 3, and ps3 didnt get it for about a year if i remember rightly
My most anticipated game in years
Mine is just cause 3. Fallout looks really good but i like fast action games.
Just cause 3 ill buy and enjoy, but its the sort of game i would of enjoyed more if i was 15 yrs old @corpser - fallout 4 is something off the chart, ive got a week booked of work, pipboy edition order x2, amazon edition, steelbook, etc etc ive got abit crazy really even the day when the official announcement happened i was at work 3pm (gmt) and i spent 2 hours solid with the biggest stupidest grin on my face :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
I cannot wait for this!
This game is going to be amazing
I'm undecided if I should get it for ps4 or Xbox one.
I would wait until they announce specs on both consoles. If they are the same,or close, I will probably get Xbox because of mod support. Though I think I remember hearing that PS will get mods at some point as well. So then it comes down to Achievements or trophies :)
Get it on which you play most as most of your friends will have it
Ps4 mod support announced in article
If I was you I would go for the Xbox version as you will able to access mods earlier and you also get fallout 3 included with the Xbox one only
PS4 bro, because I got one and that's what I'm getting it for. Also PS"4" Console was made for this game.
both are good. AS long as you get the game you want :). Ive invested much Money in a gaming computer so i will get it for PC
Mods are coming first to XO plus you will get a free digital copy of Fallout 3 for 360 to play using backwards compatibility.
Sign up for your Season Pass now & "Prepare for the Future" Call 555-VAULT :-D lol
Hopefully this isnt a bug infested mess like fO3 dlc. How people forget....
Fallout 5 had five dlc and NV had 4 it was a good deal .if people don't like season pass then wait for the game of the year edition
If you travelled back from the future to tell us what Fallout 5 had, why not just tell us what dlc will be coming to 4?
That was miss type smart ass fallout 3 obviously
Tried fallout NV but couldn't get into it. Characters had no voices, and i couldn't be arsed with rusty revolvers. Maybe it's just not for me.
lots dont like the desert scene like myself. its good but fallout 3 is better.
...."no voices" ?? Not sure what was wrong with your game bud, Fallout 3 and NV both have voice overs. Thats just you bud lol. Sorry to hear that. https://www.youtube.com/wat... That sounds like people are speaking to me lol If you don't like New Vegas, you won't like Fallout 4, the concept is just the same. It didn't just turn into another genre lol
I think they should stop thinking about life after Fallout 4, and start thinking about how many bugs they can fix before Fallout 4 is released. Because God damn, Bethesda... Have you looked at your track record?
How do you know "they" are the same folks even working on the DLC for Fallout 4? Fallout 4 isn't being made by 1 person, I'm pretty sure the team that fixes those bugs, is not part of developing future content... Its not a team of 1 person.
They wrapped up at end of August, they've given themselves more time to iron out bugs than any other big-name developer.
I need a time machine I cant f*#&/& wait anymore
