Todd Howard gave an interview in which he commented on the controversial launch of Fallout 76 . The legendary game developer has admitted that he regrets how Bethesda launched a spin-off of the popular RPG franchise.
No, Todd Howard did not apologize for the very existence of Fallout 76 - although hardcore fans of the older parts of the series would certainly like to hear such recognition. On the contrary, Howard believes that the game is fine now. But at the launch, everything was really sad.
“We have let many people down. But thanks to the constantly evolving nature of Fallout 76, the game has a chance to atone for this mistake, ”said Howard.
In addition, the game designer commented on Bethesda's bet on the online versions of The Elder Scrolls and Fallout, which for fans of these series have become the only alternative to the long-awaited new parts.
“We're singles fans, so we had problems creating multiplayer. We found that even with the multiplayer focus of The Elder Scrolls Online and Fallout 76, many users of these titles prefer to play them in the same way as in the single. These gamers don't want to be distracted by other players. And it’s quite a working approach, which has its advantages, ”says Howard.
Recall that about half a year ago, Fallout 76, along with the Wastelanders add-on, reached Steam. There, the game at first began to be bombarded with negative ratings , but now its rating has leveled off: based on more than 16 thousand reviews, users rated Fallout 76 at 78%. Not the worst result for a game with such a start.
