Bethesda shoots down rumors of last gen versions of Fallout 4 and responds to speculation regarding graphics.
Ever since Fallout 4 was revealed earlier this week, there has been a lot of speculation regarding Fallout 4’s graphics. Granted that the trailer has some rough edges at some places, there is no denying that it does look pretty beautiful. Some players have also compared Fallout 4 to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and I personally think that comparison is ridiculous. None of the Fallout games have been about cutting edge visuals, the series is known for its impressive art style representing the post apocalyptic world. And I must say, that Fallout 4 nails it.
So what does Bethesda think about the recent speculation regarding the game’s visuals? Bethesda’s Pete Hines responded by stating that he is not wasting his time caring about what they think. “I’m not spending any time or energy caring what they think,” he tweeted. He further stated that the game looks amazing and he questions whether those players were looking at the same trailer.
And honestly, Bethesda should not care since the game looks great given the setting. Moving on. For those who are still looking to the play the game on last gen consoles, as a previous rumor suggested, be ready to get disappointed as Pete Hines and Bethesda’s community lead have denied that the game is coming on PS3 and Xbox 360. “Well you feel free to wait for those other platforms and be sure to let me know when they show up,” Pete Hines responded with a sarcastic statement.
Bethesda’s Community lead implied on Neogaf that they will never mislead their consumers and they always list out what platforms the game will be coming out. “We don’t list platforms if we’re not developing the game for them. As another example, you won’t see PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 listed at the bottom of the product page for Wolfenstein: The Old Blood — that game isn’t going to be on those platforms, either, ” the community lead stated. He further stated that Fallout 4 is only possible on current gen consoles and PC and it is not possible to run it on last gen consoles given what they are doing with the game.
Also if you are excited about Fallout 4 and are looking forward to getting some questions answered before June 14th, be ready to get disappointed. Hines mentioned that they won’t be answering anything and players should instead check out the new screenshots and tune in for the press conference.
