VATS? Story? i need more information.
Lol. Rubbish. So many games going online so they can continuously siphon money from players. This is the new thing and I'll be staying away from them. If a game has a proper single player campaign that i can play without being online and it has online elements then I'm interested. To each his own
You can play it off-line.......... Not really
@Flame Oh? You can select “play offline” can you? No? Then it’s not offline You can play online and ignore players to go solo, that’s it...not the same
So divided on this. Partly I'm disappointed and thinking, it's what I feared, just an online game not a real fallout game. But there was times when I played Fallout 4 and I was building my settlements that I felt this would be perfect to create and share, and have other people see my settlement and vise versa. So I can see the idea, and it might be fun. I'm just so divided, never been this divided about a game. They did mentioned you could play on your own but are they really taking the single player story serious or just tacking it on to an online game kinda of like the first Destiny. I am a bit excited, if nothing else because it's coming out this year. But I am super divided, not sure how serious to take this as a Fallout game. Don't know if I'm looking at it wrong to just think it's a not a mainline Fallout game, just a mmorpg Fallout. Not even sure if Bestheda knows, they're just tying something and see what happens.
Nope. I'm out.
Always Online...I agree This is not Fallout. It's like they wanted to do Fallout: Online but didn't want it to clash with Elder Scrolls Online If you can't pause as a single player gamer then you are playing by Online rules, that's forced whether you try to defend it or not.
Thought it was stated can be played singleplayer aswell.
@Monolith You can play on your own, as in no friends, but being entirely online it would seem all the other people in the game will still be controlled by real people. Of course they didn't make it very clear, but I think when they said "entirely online" is very telling.
@Monolith You can play solo you just wont get the full experience as it's not made for single player gamers How many times during a Deathclaw fight would you go into your inventory, where it would PAUSE, so you can sort shit out? You won't get that in this game, it will be like Destiny, The Division and Monster Hunter Online where you get no breathers. I like taking my time and I just can't believe they can't do an offline mode. It's so sad to see people support this, it could have a DRASTIC effect on their future games, I don't want to see online in their main games.
"You can play solo you just wont get the full experience as it's not made for single player gamers" That's just not true. That goes against everything Bethesda stands for. Just because they're adding multiplayer doesn't mean solo players won't get the full experience. Todd Howard made very clear that they wanted to still provide the same great solo experience they're known for. Adding multiplayer doesn't take away from that.
@porkChop “Todd Howard made very clear that they wanted to still provide the same great solo experience they're known for” Really? You believe that? How many times have developers said something like this? COME ON...it’s to sell more copies and calm people down, you must know that deep down If they wanted to stand with what they are known for this game wouldn’t exist.
"How many times have developers said something like this?" Bethesda hasn't. They haven't done this before. Even ESO wasn't made by them. Bethesda has a proven record of providing great solo experiences. There's nothing to suggest that won't be the case with Fallout 76. I get that other devs have made those promises and failed to deliver on them, but we're talking about a studio that lives and breathes singleplayer. They've consistently provided great SP experiences when everyone else has been moving away from those. I understand being skeptical, that's fine, but you're going beyond that. You're acting like you know this as fact, as if it's literally impossible for Bethesda to do it right unlike everyone else.
Foxtrot - "If they wanted to stand with what they are known for this game wouldn’t exist. " So, essentially.. they should just ignore what millions of their fans are asking for? If you don't want an online Fallout, MOVE ON. Why is that concept SO HARD for people on this site? Regardless, millions of their fans want a co-operative/online Fallout. And now they are getting it; deal with it.
Millions of fans were not asking for this, just a very noisy minority who weren’t happy with what Fallout was in the first place Don’t kid yourself, it wasn’t loosing them sales or money If it ain’t broke...
The more they showed the worse it got =/ Fell into the nope pile when they said online only
I was worried it would have been a straight Dayz/Rust clone in a Fallout skin but this looks solid, shame it's always online but at least you can play the story/quests by yourself, looks like it will be a lot of fun with friends.
No fallout 3 remaster
I will pass. These types of games suck all your gaming time away if you want to keep up with everyone else on our friend's list.
Ok so I am in two minds about this. It looks good but the always online thing is worrying. Like I want to be able to do quests in peace or with a friend. Not have to worry other players are just going to troll us when we are half way through a quest. So here is what I want to see. If you can't play this offline single player. Then I want a passive option like GTA online has. Where I can take part in co op online and do my own thing without the worry of being killed by other players. But I obviously can't kill other players while in passive mode.
I'd honestly be surprised if they didn't offer some form of passive mode. It would make sense.
Yup for the people who don't want to PVP but instead just co op.
Oh noes the online is a bad and scary place. All you hermits can go sit in the corner then. The rest of us will be gaming too much to complain about..ever..single..thing. It's one thing to champion single player stories that we love, but some of you need to just admit that you don't want ANYTHING to be online enabled. Some games are offline. Some are not. Some are both. There is way too much to choose from at any given time to attack something every time you hear the word multiplayer.
Online only count me out thank you unless there is a way to completely play solo Will buy and play fallout 3/new vegas on ps3
i think they meant you can play the entirety of the game online, but also offline.
Btw the power helmet edition is available for preorder on bestbuy.com right now...kinda buggy so keep trying until it works.
Cant believe I'm actually saying this about a Fallout game but I am going to pass. Online only with other players is a massive NO for me. I've played and beaten every Fallout but this doesnt interest me at all. You just lost a long time fan/player Bethesda. So disappointed.
"Lost a long time fan/player". Get a life dude.
Not sure what your issue is with my statement. It's a public forum where you're free to Express your own opinion on games. And yes a long time fan. Started playing the first one when I was 11 years old. Going multiplayer and always online is trash IMO
Just give me Starfield and Elder VI. This is a hard pass. Fallout Dead Rising - State of Decay Edition.
Very excited for this one. Fallout in the survival genre like rust an ark. This will be the one I jump into.
All the crybabies lol
This game is going to be dominated by Red dead 2
