Fallout 4 hype


Posted By on Aug 10, 2016

Todd Howard from Bethesda Game Studios enthusiastically announced to a hall full of nerds that Fallout 4 would be coming out and they went nuts. It was also announced that those who would purchase Fallout 4 in the first 90 days after its initial release on November 10th will receive a code to download a free copy of Fallout 3. However, according to a post on Bethesda Blog, it turned out that Bethesda Game Studios was only offering that luxury to those who pre-order Fallout 4. The code would then be available to them within a 7-10 day period of pre-ordering and will be redeemable on Xbox.com or on the Xbox 360. Still, the game has been released so you are not interested in this anymore.

Buyers will be able to play Fallout 3 on the Xbox One if they acquire a free copy this way because it’ll feature backwards compatibility. However, the offer only stands, it seems, if you purchase your copy of Fallout 4 from the Xbox Store. There’s no mention of this offer anywhere on Amazon or GAME. Also, it’s bad news for PS4 gamers because the offer is exclusive to Xbox One. Also, many users are confused about whether Fallout 3 will be a playable title on the Xbox One via backwards compatibility – Bethesda products are known for various bugs on every platform at launch, something that might impact their release on the Xbox One which essentially attempts to emulate the 360 via software.

Fallout 4 is now available for pre-order on the Xbox Games Store for $59.99/£59.99. Moving away from the controversial UK price for the game, it seems like a decent offer provided gamers are willing to sacrifice a physical copy as part of the trade.

Open World Gaming

The release is really important for the PC because of two reasons: Mortal Kombat X and Arkham Knight. Fallout has come to be known as one of the most complete Open World experiences there is so it’s really important that it transcends the controversy surrounding the two biggest screw ups for PC gaming this year. Come November, people will be expecting fluid performance across all platforms, not a promise to release patches a few days later.

Todd Howard said that the team at Bethesda Studios had been working on Fallout 4 since 2009, just a year after the release of 3, so expectations are really high for this, arguably even higher than Arkham Knight.
