I'd not consider it such an issue if Fallout 76 were a purely cooperative game, but those hunting the deadliest game in PvP could be a problem if they can claim any underhanded competitive edge.
When asked, "how long is Fallout 76 going to be up"? Hines offered no details on how many gamers still playing the game would be required for Bethesda to continue operating the official game servers.
Fallout 76 being a multiplayer online game doesn't mean that Bethesda is finished making single player games.
Bethesda and Microsoft also took over the 76ers stadium during their game against the Detroid Pistons with Vault jumpsuits, lots of Xbox and Fallout advertisements, and Fallout 76 custom jerseys and player kits. Fallout 76 beta weighs in at only 47GB, the patch that is being released has clearly not been compressed as much as it could have been, and has been pushed out so players that jump onto the beta tomorrow will have a much better experience within the game despite the download.
He continued: "It's absolutely something all of our studios have been involved in and looked at and thought about as we talk about what we do going forward", Hines said. Forever. I don't know how to give an answer other than that.
Fallout 76 has proven to be a bit divisive since beta testing got under way but since this is a live game, we can expect plenty of changes and improvements to be made over the next year. "I seriously doubt it".
Currently, these mods and the changes they bring are only visible on the player side meaning none of your friends will be able to see your new bright hairdo. So devs support and the game and the servers are still up. "But this is a massive franchise and Bethesda commitment to it is never-ending".
The the schedule has been updated with the final two B.E.T.A. sessions.
Of course, Bethesda isn't going to throw shade on the Wii U's low install base right after entering a key partnership as one of the premiere Switch third parties: but it's obvious that it also played a factor in them staying their hand last generation.
