For the first time in a long time I'm excited about a new release. So far what I know it that it's a prequel, it's entirely online (but I'm not sure if an MMO or more of a public and private server type setup). It's described as a multiplayer survival game. There will be base building. I pre-ordered the standard edition on Amazon, and because I'm prime it was $47.xx dollars instead of $59. The pre-order comes with beta access. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DDD9VK7/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1 Hopefully I'll see some of you there.
Fallout 76 is live right now. It wasn’t supposed to go live until midnight last night but it’s arrived early so a few of us started our journey through Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic MMORPG yesterday. So far, it is playing more like a Fallout 4 co-op with a new ((much larger) map than the pvp mayhem some were expecting. I did run into a few brave souls who wanted to tangle early on, but not much came of it as there are protocols that keep open pvp from being too deadly until after you reach level 5. I crashed twice in 10 hours, and my 4 yr old system held up nicely on ultra graphics (I7 - RX 480 - 32GB Ram). The base building is unique and interesting. Pieces snap much more smoothly than I remember in FO4. If you find a unique plan (blueprint) like a crafting station or furniture, you can help your team out by building it for them on their camp (base) and they'll get to keep it, even if they move their base around. The S.P.E.C.I.A.L system has been revamped with cards you can use to customize your characters perks and abilities, e.g. Guild Wars. I didn't see it as a minus or plus, just something new to figure out and maximize for the way I play the game. The difficulty was typical of Fallout games, where it can be a challenge for moderate gamers and daunting for casual gamers new to the Fallout franchise. Good times are always best shared, and this game is no exception....running around with a team is much more enjoyable, however the game does not diminish whatsoever when it comes to making progress solo. So far, it has my endorsement. Join us in discord https://discord.gg/ar8NGD or on the forums
Fallout 76's full release date was announced at Bethesda's E3 conference, and it's coming this year on November 14th, 2018 on PC Now, please feel free to rewind your gaming memory to June, 2015... ARK: Survival Evolved's early release showed up on Steam, and surprised the heck out of most CotP members, including myself. Despite the server stability and networking issues, the game was quite a hit with CotP members and certainly made a lasting impact on this community. While Fallout 76 is not sneaking up on anyone who doesn't live under a rock, I am personally hoping for another CotP adventure filled with good times akin to our experience in the early days of ARK's early release. I hope to meet plenty of CotP gamers who I haven't had the opportunity to game with in the past, and potentially add a few new names to my eternal (short) list of people I generally pretend to like. Similar to ARK, I also expect we will have enough participation to garner some internal competition....(hopefully a change from the standard Throne's team vs Damis' team we generally end up in). We do not have any plans for an official CotP group in the current BETA, however, as always, we will rely on our established team of early testers to give us a head start on how the game plays and where the early focus needs to be. The group forum is up and open to whomever would like to join in on the discussions and plans. General information:
So I was checking out steam one day and ran into this game I never heard of before called Fallen earth. The game immediately reminded me of fallout. I'm sure it has for many people. So I downloaded it and wanted to try it out since it's free to play. At first it was kinda weird, getting used to the controls and the UI. But after a little poking around I found this game to be quite entertaining. I named my character Robert Neville from the book I am Legend, but tried to make him look as closely as possible to Will Smith. As soon as I started the game I saw a scientist and immediately killed him. I punched him to death by flailing arms everywhere until he died. He then died in the most awkward way possible. Head first into the ground with his legs still firmly planted on the floor. It was hilarious! Especially since his death looked like it got delayed. I was then instructed by a disembodied voice that I was clone used for organ harvest and to I guess to create an army? So i pushed some random buttons on a terminal and it opened a door in front of me. Walked out the door and was told the base or whatever was under attack. Mean while I found an axe lunged into this guys skull and picked it up. Oddly enough his entire body disappeared as If I just taken it as well. After a few random kills with my new axe I finally got my first gun. A prehistoric rifle that only shots up to 50 meters. After doing some close ranged sniping. I found a man complaining the whole place was going to explode and the only way of escape is threw a tunnel. So after taking 3 falling damage for jumping into the tunnel I got attacked by three deformed looking gollums and rode off on the slowest and smallest ATV I've ever seen. The ride was extremely short due to the fact that I drove right into the place where the bombs were placed and it exploded as soon as I got there. I got teleported to a new area where the game starts to open up a bit more. After 4 hours in total of game time I have to say I am quite entertained with this game. I fell into a well only to find out it extends to an underground bar with terrible music. But still cool nonetheless. If anyone is still playing this game or if you want to try it out, do it! Its huge, very atmospheric, community is helpful, sandbox, combat is fun, and exploring is interesting. Steam: PG50 steam named Frosty.
