Fallout 76: Bethesda Promises Tons of Content Post-Launch
Bethesda recently revealed its most imaginative Fallout game yet, with Fallout 76 boldly going entirely online with at least a partial focus on PvP and co-op gameplay. Players will be able to craft their own fortresses anywhere on the map and transport them, hunt massive beasts, and search for fantastic loot. While some players may be worried about the breadth of content in such a game, Todd Howard made a statement to try and quell some anxiety surrounding the topic:
We’re definitely going to create our own stuff. We have a cadence in mind. We’ll see how it goes. If everything works out perfectly with launch, which won’t be the case, we’ll be able to make a lot of content, but we know our priorities.”
Those priorities, according to Howard, are to make sure the game works and that bugs are not plaguing the experience when the title launches later this year. Bethesda games have been known to be a bit of a mess at launch so reassurances that glitch fixes are a priority, especially in the fragile landscape of a multiplayer-only game, are more than welcome.
It’s a big new thing for us. We’re scared. How well can we make this work? We look at some other big online games, and even the people who’ve done it a lot, there’s always problems. We’re not naive enough to think it’s going to be perfect.”
Fallout 76 is easily one of the most anticipated games releasing this fall, with some parties simply looking forward to the next Fallout game, and others interested instead in seeing if a Bethesda RPG structure can work in a service-based style. Will it pan out the way Howard and Bethesda hopes it will? We’ll just have to wait and see.
Fallout 76 arrives for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 14, 2018.
