Will Fallout 4 Add New NPC Companions?
What kind of vile creatures would you want on your side in the sequel?
Bethesda Softworks’ Fallout 4 is seemingly heating up, with ZeniMax filing trademarks for Nuka Cola – the popular refreshment of the Fallout universe – and the previous casting call leak which revealed the game to be reportedly taking place in Boston. Until we hear an official confirmation though, we’ll keep discussing potential ideas for the game, which include what kind of NPC companions you should be able to pick up.
This includes Mutants and Deathclaws, the latter which could be trained and fight alongside you. After all, the Deathclaws are the most notorious creatures of New Vegas – why not let them fight for you in Fallout 4? Of course, there could also be robotic companions that could help you out in a pinch. Our money is on having a mutated dog with three heads a la Cerberus. Just because it would be cool.
We would also like to see a return of Goris in Fallout 4 although we are not sure what the lifespan of Deathclaws are, so the possibility of them being alive by the time Fallout 4 takes place is uncertain. Then there is the possibility of also having ghoul companions and with rumours of the game being set in Boston, there is a good chance that the companion could be an android. Or even better an ex-bounty Hunter could just be the icing on the cake.
