Okay, Cool's Shoaib Alli writes, "Fallout 76 looks fun, but is this really what fans wanted from the franchise?"
I think they know that. I hope they give solo players enough of the known Fallout experience as we know it to keep complaints at bay.
I have no problem with Bethesda trying something different and taking risks. Seeing as I have not played it yet I can't really feel justified in complaining. But till I see actual gameplay and play myself I will be cautiously optimistic. I'm sure Bethesda knew they'd upset some people. Most people are afraid of change. And of course, as it is not called FO5, I suspect they could still release a traditional SP only FO game in the future.
@UltraNova If they honestly want to give single player Fallout gamers their "Fallout experience" then they would have made an offline mode, a game off the servers so it's completely offline with NPC's around, VATS is like older games and able to pausing the game while searching through inventory. They didn't....
this is the Fallout version of ESO and that can stand on its own and does not infringe on Skyrim. They can make two games in the same universe that appeal to different gamers. 76 is for the MP and FO5 is for the SP. We can sort of already guess it will be coming out for next gen like 4 did for this one.
So dissapointed. Fallout without singleplayer sounds so barren. I was so interested in the new engine improvements too. Still getting the power helmet edition...Have some friends who want it too so Ill give it chance. Playing with griefers sounds so offputting though...sigh.
You’re so disappointed but you’re still going to drop $200 on it? Weird.
I found the NoClip documentary video on behind the scenes at BGS for FO76 pretty interesting. Maybe worth a watch.
I want the collectors stuff.
All of my friends are upset over this, even though i do not buy Bethesda games. So i agree, just judging from their opinions.
No its what ruined this game. Its a basoc generic shooter with tacted on multiplayer. The only reason the fallout name is attached to this is because they wouldnt have been able to sell this game otherwise.
I didn't realize you played the game already. Where?
Haha smartass, but its taking the series away from whats it good at .
I was just joking around. C'mon now. I am just not unhappy with the direction as I don't think they are abandoning the future release of FO5. I think FO76 is a creative risk but think it could be fun. I am willing to wait until I play the game to decide whether I like it or not.
no it is not.
Not at all. There is a lot of disappointed people right now me being one of them. I really hope they have a change of heart and give us the opportunity to play offline
Private servers are a thing
That will not happen. My consoles are never offline. So being online has no significant impact for me. I guess many people don't have internet? That's surprising in this day and age.
No and it's probably gonna be like ES Online. It's online but we're still getting a SP ES game.
It's what a lot of people wanted, yes.
for my tastes, absolutely not, for joe schmo down the streets tastes... possibly yes :/ sadly i would say given the nature of every single other fallout game (aka single player, story driven rpg) i'd say it alienates a large portion of the normal core demographic which is a very bizarre move on beths part but w/e i absolutely despise ESO and its apparently making money hand over fist so just because i'll probably also despise this doesnt mean they arent going to make money which is sadly all they care about :/ guess i'll just twittle thumbs until ES6, Starfield, or FO5 if they also dont get infected with some mp :(
This is my problem too...it is contrary to what fallout is. They should have tested the waters first with a fallout 4 dlc or something. If only we had to use our real names to go online. Anonymity makes savages of everyone.
No just give me dogmeat, a gun and a world to explore that's fallout
Not if it's forced. If they could at least just offer an offline mode then all would be well. I don't want to be constantly bamboozled by better real world players. They seriously should have thought this through because I absolutely love Fallout. The last 3 games were day one purchases from me and I loved them so this really upset me. I'm hoping they at least offer an invisible mode or something.. I mean they have to or they're alienating a large chunk of their fan base.
I believe the past few games have done extremely well, this is a drastic change I dont believe too many people wished for, its strange to think A new fallout is coming this year that I don't intend to buy, its a real shame, no npcs? Come on.
No and I am not buying. Especially after last year save the single player campaign to now have an online only
Not for me sadly. RIP Fallout, it was good ride.
It’s as if people don’t want gaming companies to take risks and would rather the same shit different day. This gamer outrage at anything people doubt or don’t like even though the game hasn’t even released more often times than not, is some of the saddest most entitled garbage I’ve seen in a while. I hope more devs start ignoring forums and comment sections until a games out and stop letting the vocal arm chair devs dictate what everyone wants or decide what we should enjoy.
Just wait until they announce that the only way to use mods will be through creation club. People will be furious.
NO! It takes away what made the series great. Those...moments..the slow mo as you decided what to do to GTFO of the cray situation etc. Also I am not getting the no NPC's thing. Who the hell is going to hand out quests? Other players? I see this one tanking HARD.
