  1. so this is just going to be Rust with nukes instead of C4 right? I don't get why people enjoy these types of games.

    Hell Elder Scrolls Online, but Fallout would have probably been a better idea. At least then Fallout purists would have their voiced storylines.

  2. Ok, so the Noclip documentary they broadcast last night put me way more in the mood for this game. They seem to be digging deep into the lore to justify shit, and it looks like a legitimately interesting thing. The Worldspace itself seems to be one of the most interesting and gives a more "hasn't been touched in 25 years" feel and apparently a lot of stumble upon locations.

    There was also the surprise of the reveal of a faction called The Scorched. So ghouls beginning to turn feral and constantly angry and hungry, but they can still use guns. A neat way of keeping raider-like beings in the game but doing something a bit different.

    A lot of the new monsters and insects they're adding as well are justified by saying they're harsh, rapid mutations and they could have been so bad they later died off. (I suspect this will just become a retcon and we'll see some of the cooler shit in future games).

    Confirmed towns in the game: Morganstown, Charleston, Harper's Ferry.

    There's a mixture of the C.A.M.P system we already saw which lets you have a mini homestead/settlement and there are "public workshops" where you're expected to team up, take the location, then "reinforce it" (which sounds like getting a chance to build shit) which means you then get unique resources such as taking a lead mine to make bullets etc. Your own personal homestead will despawn with you when you log off, and if someone attacks you, you can repair it as opposed to it being destroyed to nothing.

    Perk Cards means you can re-roll your character every time you level up if you want, and you can share out your cards in your party, letting you build up a team where there's a dedicated cratfer, medic, sniper, etc.

    Navigation is by a paper map, not a pipboy and you can see other players.

    It's capped at 24 people per instance.

    It seems like the nukes will nudge you towards encouraging you to create high level end zones to close "fissures" where high level monsters spawn and then generate shit like Uranium and other ultra rare materials.

    Microtransactions will go in, but be nerfed down to reskins and cosmetic differences. DLC and updates will be free.

    The game long term will be managed by Bethesda Austin, a new studio with some old hands in the online business, including folks from Star Wars Galaxies and Ultima Online.

  4. Strongly considering preordering since I'm 99% sure 2-3 of my friends will play it day 1 and 24-32 people spread across 4 fallout 4 maps doesn't sound so bad even if it turns out no PVE or private servers.

    I'll probably wait until beta actually goes live and I hear some opinions though.

  5. I'd buy it if it wasn't so reliant on an online connection. My wifi crashes every hour or so.

  6. It has an MG-42. I will just be happy to go full Jin-Roh with my friends. That will be worth it alone i think.

  7. That makes the game sound a bit better. I'm willing to try the beta out to give the game a chance.

  8. It's not really a faction if they auto-aggro and only fight you.

  9. Game-wise, yeah.

    The engine is still the bloody gamebryo engine though, now even more heavily modified and was mostly modified back in 2015 by Battlecry Studios to make it suitable for multiple people. It seems the engine starts to break at around the 30 people mark hence the cap of 24, which also opens the door to cross platform play.

    It's the same as The Gunners, really.

  11. Seeing shit like the MG-42, the Browning .50 cal, and a flintlock pistol makes me wonder what other sorts of crazy shit we'll be able to wield and modify. I'm hoping that we'll see the Plasma Caster return in all its bulky & deadly glory.

  14. In a recent interview with PC Gamer, Todd had this to say about mod support:
    Very vague and nonspecific answer. I get the feeling this promised mod support is just a euphemism for Creation Club bullshit and not proper Nexus mods.

  15. Mods would be really easy to implement in "your own private world" if you could play the game offline.

    I was thinking it was going to be half like how Skyrim/FO4 does it with their official mod upload service, the other half it'll likely be able to sync players together whenever you join a private server. What I'm thinking if this is the case, however, is that even on PC there'll be a cap to how much you can download at once when joining a server, or modded and unmodded servers will be separated so you can easily navigate between them.

  16. Probably flat-out too dangerous. Gangers, super mutants, local wildlife...

    The Capital Wastleland isn't Walt Disney World, but at least you know what to expect.
