Will Fallout 4 Feature An Always Online DRM And Micro-transactions?
This week we speculate unexpected features that may makes its way to Fallout 4.
Another E3 has come and gone by but Bethesda have not revealed any new information about the next entry in the Fallout franchise. It seems that it will be that way for sometime to come but at least they have been cryptically hinting it via trademark registrations and job listings. Despite the lack of any new details, we will keep speculating on what what Bethesda could add into Fallout 4.
This week we will discuss possible features that could be added into the Fallout 4. Could Bethesda add an always online requirement? With a lot of modern games going online only [example Destiny], we might very well see Fallout 4 bringing the single player and multiplayer components as a single package. This could help Bethesda to add new patches and features on the fly. But again, multiplayer in a Fallout world seems tacked on and unnecessary.
Another feature that is the rage these days are micro-transactions. In my opinion, micro-transactions are not an evil practice unless they are done right. Very few developers get it right these days but Bethesda for one won’t make their fan base angry by adding in-game transactions that will feel tacked on.
What are your thoughts on this and what other features could Bethesda add into Fallout 4? Let us know in the comments section below.
