    No doubt many of you are aware of the new multiplayer fallout game due for release around November this year. Ive spent time looking into the game (and will continue to do so) and checking out comments from people about the game, and i admit it seems that it is getting mostly negative responses from gamers. I haven't decided if i will buy it just yet, there are somethings that sound good and somethings that sound bad. However if enough TOGGERs show interest on the PS4 (although i suspect most will probably be pc players) then i will probably pick up a copy. Even if its only say 5-10 players. For those of you who havent heard anything about it here is what ive found out so far. Although its all subject to change.

    Servers will hold 24-32 players
    Servers are PvP (Bethesda are trying to cut down on the griefing by placing certain restrictions.
    The game uses the Fallout 4 engine which will be tweaked for multiplayer.
    The map is around 4 times the size of Fallout 4.
    When you die you wont loose your stuff or progression.
    There will be events.
    There is a story line and quests but no npcs (like conan exiles)
    There are quests to find codes to set off nukes which host high level creatures and legendary loot within the nuke zones.

    Just a few things ive learned im not going to state any more at this point. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks.

    Okay console friends. Who will be playing this latest release of the FALLOUT series. I know I will. Given it's no longer a single player experience but you can still play solo, who will be playing this in November? Lets get a show of hands to gauge interest.

    I am very tempted, but there are other games I am considering. Battlefield V and Anthem

    I've pre-ordered my copy for PS4. I've been watching all the stuff on it, and it keeps drawing more interest from me.

    I too am interested in Anthem, but that's still a ways off from now.

    Also playing on PC, which doesn't have a button here
    Also playing on PC here.

    X-Box/Playstation crossplatform is almost certain to never happen. X-Box/PC isn't a thing now, but isn't entirely impossible in future.

    I posted details for the BETA in the survival area of the forums.

    Fallout 76 is NOT cross platform for release (and may never be) even though Sony have done a backflip on Fortnite and other games are expected to follow in the future.
    Bethesda are looking at the "possibility" of cross platform but said they started Fallout 76 several years ago when cross platform just wasn't allowed.

    Right now all efforts are going into ironing out the bugs for the Nov 14 release so I doubt they have spent much effort on looking at cross platform support.
    Allowing modded player run servers seem to be getting more of their attention than cross platform support and I don't expect to see players servers for at least a year. (my guess based on current game performance and usual Bethesda bug fixing - no official timeframe even hinted at by Bethesda for player servers)
    Bethesda have "promised" mods and player run servers they have NOT "promised" cross platform support.

    Well I'm enjoying the game myself. The only thing I really have any issues with is the lag that only seems to occur when there are other players close by.

    I didn't pay full price for it but that's because I don't just buy from places like EB Games.

    No I don't hate Bethesda.
