The desire for Fallout 4 news is at an all-time high following the Fallout 3 release date passing its 5-year anniversary. It would have been nice to hear some solid Fallout 4 news on October 28, 2013, which marked 5 years since some people purchased one of their favorite games.
Once this date passed a number of Product Reviews readers left feedback about their desire to see a Fallout 4 release window, or at least some sort of tease towards its launch and development. “I really did hope that something would be announced on the anniversary, but sadly this didn’t happen and I’m losing hope of seeing anything this year”, said one fan.
Another fan of Fallout 3 added, “Bethesda has a number of teams working on different projects and even with a big team, we cannot deny they are really busy right now with Dishonored DLC, bugs in Elder Scrolls Online and other projects. I feel they have too much on to announce any Fallout 4 news in 2013”.
We know that Bethesda hasn’t confirmed Fallout 4 officially, let alone a release date, but a few leaks and hints like the Three Dog voice actor partnering up again leads most gamers to expect the game by 2015 the latest. Pete Hines explained clearly on his Twitter account that Bethesda obtained the game license so they can build the franchise, and will “develop it and work on it”. These comments alone give fans confidence there’ll be a Fallout 4 eventually.
Building a great game engine — some people want to see Fallout 4 use the same game engine seen with Skyrim, but personally we would rather see a totally different engine used and not a rehashed Skyrim. Mix this with PS4 and Xbox One launches, then we could see something truly special along with a good PC release.
When it comes to new features in Fallout 4, we have seen a lot of suggestions like a Sprinting Mode, the ability to transfer old character builds, some unique weapons, and a lot more. Feel free to share your wish list in the comments.
The Fallout 4 MMO debate — while the majority of fans hate the idea of Fallout 4 becoming an MMO style game, some people are at least open to it and suggest things like having a map edge so you can then move into the MMO game. This could work, but then the whole idea of MMO just doesn’t work with some of the most dedicated fans of this franchise. Again, leave your comments below.
There are still some of us that hope the Spike TV Video Game Awards will deliver Fallout 4 news, although this would almost certainly be the last hope for 2013.
