Multiplayer finally comes to the epic open-world RPGs of Bethesda Game Studios. The game is coming to XBO, PS4, and PC.
This Fallout title will feature new monsters, inspired by the history of its setting, West Virginia.
"As far as I know, it's the first major video game ever set in West Virginia", said Justin McElroy, former editor of the online website Polygon that reports on the video game industry.
Tonight we learned that players will be one of the few chosen to stay in Vault 76 for twenty-five years waiting for Reclamation Day. Bethesda says its revamped lighting and graphics rendering tech will make the environment look spectacular at every turn. It's more "softcore survival", he says.

Every new Microsoft blockbuster is likely to be a fun game, polished to a mirror sheen, but they won't be reasons to own an Xbox. Microsoft officials said the company is building a new Santa Monica, Calif. -based studio which it's calling "The Initiative".
It'll also include according to Fallout's big cheese Todd Howard, " a map that glows in the f***ing dark".
You can join your friends whenever you want and all of your progression will go with you. The latest game from the Fallout franchise takes place entirely online, meaning you'll be able to play with other players if you'd like for the first time and either team up to fight monsters or try to blow each other's limbs off starting on November 14. This will be handled through C.A.M.P.s (Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform) that serve as the basis for your base. The game is a cross between FarmVille and its post-apocalyptic trappings with no mandatory online requirement or pay-to-win micro-transactions. "We love dynamic game systems, so we thought, "Why don't we put multiple nuclear sites on the map and let you do whatever you want with them?'" Howard mused". The places where nuclear missiles land will create high-level gameplay zones with valuable resources that you won't necessarily be able to get elsewhere.
