Since there wasn't a thread for this, I decided to create one. Out of all the games to come out of E3, I'm fairly interested in this. The visuals showed was really interesting and it very nearly sold me with just that. I'm a bit wary because the best estimates of the games is that its going to be Fallout Battle Royale (that I've seen) with survival aspects and building aspects, and other things. Alot of people have likened it to Rust, which I never really played all that much so I can't use that to base my opinions on. Its been said there will be no, I guess, friendly NPCs, because Raiders and other types are going to be included. The only friendlys you might encounter are going to be real people. Also, its always online. But there isn't going to be a server queue. Estimated max player size per map, atleast in the video linked, is twelve players. But I don't know about that. Also your player data will "follow" you from server to server so your progress will never be lost. I'd really like this game to have a single player story line, but maybe that's something that comes later. I'd like to see the emphasis they place on actual survival in the game, because some of my best Fallout experiences have been using the Survival Mods, and Terrain Mods to make the game more interesting. Its set in West Virgina, and some of the visuals we're shown is that its largely untouched by the Fallout. Something new is the dynamic weather systems such as rad storms, which you can view occurring in the distance in real time, and its also a important part of the survival mechanic depending on where you end up on the map. Its also set 20 years after the bombs drop, so the story line is going to be really interesting, I think, because we've always seen what the world looks like far into the future. Here they have the opportunity to introduce new game lore that could have a lasting impact on any of the future games. Its coming out this year, and has apparently been in development for a long time. The buzzword selling points are that its four times the size of FO4 in terms of area to cover. That can both be a deterrent for some people, and an invitation for those of use that like huge open worlds with lots of things to discover. I've mentioned in the E3 thread and a couple other threads that the major draw for me in FO and TES isn't so much the storyline -- don't get me wrong, the lore is great -- but the actual game mechanics, the level systems, and the exploration. I played Skyrim for a whole year before I ever completed a single quest related to the main story line, and I did the same thing for Fallout 3 and Fallout 4. I'm not sure I'm sold on the whole survival mechanic of Fallout76, but I think it can lead to something good and refreshing for the franchise, where there has never been much emphasis on multi-player modes. I watched a decent documentary. In it they covered the making of the game, and revealed some of their direction. I'll be honest, I've not spent this much time looking into a game into a long time. I'm expecting long term I'll be pretty happy with things, but initially I might be setup for some disappointment. Other things I've saw about the game is that there will be micro transactions, but only for skins pretty much. Nothing else will be covered under that. I hope it stays that way, because if they use some kind of stupid lootbox system in this a la Battlefront I'll just be mad. It seems more in line with Fortnite in that regard. So, here's a thread, lets talk about some Fallout.
