The Creation Club, a newly introduced modding system from Bethesda for Skyrim and Fallout 4, has launched on PC. The service essentially works in a similar manner to previous mods for those two games but adds an extra review system by the publisher to ensure that the new content works flawlessly with the game. This internal quality control comes with the price though, with mods that come through the Creation Club costing credits that can only be purchased with rea-life money.
Dion DiMucci, the singer often known simply as Dion and for hits such as Runaround Sue, is taking legal action against Bethesda’s parent company. The case concerns the use of one of his tracks in a commercial for Fallout 4 that the artist found “repugnant” and claims that Zenimax did not seek permission to use the song The Wanderer.
Following on from Bethesda’s promise to release a free high-resolution pack for players, the publisher has now made the download available for PC owners of the game. The pack is a whopping 55GB in size and makes the textures in the game appear a lot crisper when close up, presumably thanks to the fact that they haven’t been exported in a lower resolution as they had previously.
Sony caused a huge stink when they stopped the initiative to get mod support on the PS4, despite Bethesda working hard to try and make it happen for some time. Whether it be fan reaction, or just a change of heart, Bethesda has announced on their website that Fallout 4 and the upcoming Skyrim: Special Edition will have mod support. You can read their full statement below:
Bethesda has revealed that Fallout 4 mods won’t be coming to PlayStation 4 anytime soon. The company has revealed on Twitter that the official beta for mod support has been delayed, with the publisher announcing that they would update players once they had more news.
When Fallout 4 was first revealed, one of the biggest changes to the franchise was that it would allow mods on the console versions of the game for the very first time. Mods have previously been exclusive to players on PC, so this new opportunity to modify the game and add user-made content was well received by gamers on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. While the Xbox One system is now up and running without any problems, it turns out the PlayStation 4 version of the Creation Kit isn’t working exactly as planned.
At E3, Fallout 4 Director Todd Howard noted in an interview with Gamespot that though they did some really good things in Fallout 4, they also failed in other aspects. Mainly, as noted by fans, was the dialogue system. Which despite being done in 2 years via the voice actors, didn’t really live up to the hype.
One of the final DLC packs for Fallout 4 is called Nuka-World, and according to the Steam page, you won’t be playing as your character, rather, you’ll be playing a villain raider:
At the Bethesda Press Conference, it was revealed that three new DLC packs for Fallout 4 would be coming to the game. Bethesda then posted on their website specific details on all three.
It seems for a brief time this week on June 10, the Xbox Store was selling Fallout 4 for free. Gamespot reports that the hit Bethesda Softworks game was available for free on the Xbox One store due to a pricing error. This included Fallout 4 and its DLC. Bethesda Softworks reportedly had “no idea” how such an error happened.
Fallout is one of the most successful game franchises in history, especially in the last decade. As Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout Shelter, and of course Fallout 4, have all had record sales numbers. But, could this translate to it being a movie franchise?
A Reddit post, that was later confirmed by Bethesda, reveals a Survival Mode for Fallout 4 that will push gamers to the limit. In it, you’ll have no saves outside of going to a bar and sleeping for an hour or more. Fast traveling is disabled. Combat is even more lethal, and a lot more tweaks that will surely make this a memorable experience. But maybe not for the “right” reasons. You can check out the full specs below:
