Fallout 4/Shelter Roundup
Three things are perhaps synonymous with Fallout - Vaults, Mutants and Bugs. Todd Howard has ben talking to Game Informer about bugs and Bethesda’s approach to squishing them:
For us, [the player’s] saved game is the number one thing. If the game crashes that’s bad, but it is nowhere near as bad as someone’s saved game being hosed. That’s our scenario that we will do anything and everything to avoid. We made a lot of progress given how Skyrim went, but we did it during Skyrim. This just builds on that.”— Todd Howard, Game Informer article
Spy reveals no loading times, Shelter Secrets and more
Todd hasn’t just been talking to Game Informer… In an interview with Digital Spy Todd has revealled that Fallout 4 has no loading times, and confirmed the intention to bring mods to PS4 if Sony permit.
Todd also had this to say about the controversial choice to voice the protagonist:
"It changes it for the better. Having them voiced, you can make emotional moments feel a lot better, and it was important to us that we didn't hold back, so they have recorded, each of them has done over 13,000 lines of dialogue. That's a lot of time, for years, in the studio, and they've done an awesome job.””— Todd Howard, Digital Spy Interview
Um, 2008. Actually, tell people to look at the Fallout 3 trailer. If you look at the Fallout 3 trailer, the E3 one, and you watch the cartoon in the beginning, it's Fallout [Shelter]. I mean, when you watch it, it'll be crystal clear.””— Todd Howard, Digital Spy Interview
Here’s that trailer if you want to go searching…
Fallout Shelter is expected to be out next month for android, and is out now for iOS.
