The latest news from Bethesda is that the publishers are working on two new titles. One of the titles will be based off Fallout 3 tech and has already been rumored to possibly be an Elder Scrolls sequel.
Fallout 3 tech was terrible, glitch filled with outdated graphics and a poor colour filter NEW ENGINE, you've been using the same one since oblivion
That the engine is horrible, however that being said, the games are just amazing single player experiences that last days, if not a month, or even years! I still play fallout 3 for my PC today and the amount to do in the game is ridiculous. I can not wait for Elder Scrolls 5, even if the engine is not the best.
You could do MORE in the 10+ year old Elder Scrolls games. Their new games are actually more constrained.
Yes, this engine is tired. However, Obsidian have held the glitch-fest to a reasonable level by all accounts. They could have ungraded from the old Gambryo to Gamebryo Lightspeed http://www.emergent.net/en/...
Agree. The next Fallout and Elder Scrolls needs to use the idTech5 Engine
I completely agree.
Worse, they've been using the same engine since Morrowind.
Yep. Good old NetImmerse/Gambryo.
Yeah that engine really needs to go. I don't understand why they are still using it. We heard not to long ago that Id Tech 5 is only gonna be used on games within Bethesda and yet they still are not using it for their next game? Why the hell not? That Engine would not only make a Elder Scrolls game look insane but it would in theory make the game feel more like a livable world thanks to the nearly limitless ability to add things into the engine. Really Id Tech 5 was made for a Elder scrolls type of game and still they don't use it. I just don't understand.
was fine for Fallout 3. It needed that bleak, post-apocalyptic look to it. But I agree with you on the glitches and graphics.
I enjoyed Fallout 3 just fine, but I was one who waited to buy the GOTY edition. It was far more glitch ridden than the original version. Friends of mine borrowed my game to play the extra content that wasn't available in the original game and they were flabbergasted at how many times the game locked up. Personally, I've seen it lock up 6 times in 2 hours. Yeah, Fallout 3 Tech, not so good. At least not in the Game of the Year Edition. Oh yeah, my brother in law has the same version for the Xbox 360; exact same issues. He prays every time he plays it, that it doesn't freeze up.
id tech or something like that, bethesda has access to it and it looks jaw dropping
Old tech is old.
I agree with writersblock. FO3 while a great game was still a mess tech wise even after the patch. Froze like crazy and just a ton of bugs & glitches. I never had to hard reset my PS3 like I did while playing FO3. Hopefully they fixed those issues for this new game.
glitcht goodness coming lol
If they're using Fallout Tech for their next game then I hope an Elder Scrolls game isn't their next game. If it is then it will be one of the few Elder Scrolls games that I won't play.
I would have never thought about missing out on a future ES game, but now I am considering it if the next one has that same engine.
Bethesda, please use a new engine for future games. FO3 was tech wise probably the worst game I have played this gen. Horrible frame rate, ridiculous amount of bugs, and a 15 minute intermission between game crashes.
All I care about is them using the Move for Elder Scrolls V.
Would be a great addition thats for sure, ignore the disagree's, just a bunch of xbox fanboys ^_^
Ive platinum'd fallout, yet I hated it on many aspects mostly relating to the engine, etc. 1. The PS3 version didnt have any Antialiasing, which if your playing on a 72in screen will make your eyes bleed O_O (farcry 2 as well) 2. The animations in that game were HORRIBLE! Everything from movement to shooting things... even the reload animations were just plain cheap & to fast to see the movement behind it. Ive seen the new fallout trailers and its a no-no for me, looks like downloadable content and nothing more -_- despite all its faults it was still a very good game but those faults and alot of others, would not let me take another go at it. I Hope they dont as oblivion seemed far more polished than that garbage engine imo.
If the next Elder Scrolls is STILL running on that piece of crap gamebryo engine, I'll just have to pick up the game several months after release, y'know when the community of modders have released their unofficial patches and performance enhancers, because vanilla Bethesda games are nearly unplayable. Unless they do a MAJOR overhaul, I don't think I could put up with the constant microstuttering, load stuttering, bugs and general inability to run as intended on the majority of computer hardware. Here's hoping that Elder Scrolls 5 isn't this rumored game, even though I desperately want a new Elder Scrolls.
Well that's disappointing... It's 2010 people we want a new/other engine! Oh well.. *crosses fingers for ESV*
This is exactly what I hoped wouldnt happen. Fallout 3 was a good game, but one of the buggiest pieces of crap from a tech stand point. From crashing to the desktop on the pc version to my game stuck in a contant frame rate drop after one of the dlc's on the ps3 version. Please let this be some other project besides elder scrolls, at least for now.
