It appears Fallout 4 is the latest to offer a truly massive open world.
It appears that when Bethesda said that Fallout 4 was going to be a massive open world game, they weren’t kidding. One particular developer recently claimed he has already played more than 400 hours of the game, and still hasn’t managed to see and do everything.
Speaking at the Bethesda E3 2015 press event, developer Jeff Gardiner, said that he has “played the game probably for 400 hours, and I’m still finding stuff that I haven’t seen yet.” While the game was officially announced the week before E3, the gaming conference is really where Bethesda has allowed people to see under the hood and find out what they can expect when the game is finally released.
We take it as a good sign that a developer has managed to play the game for more than 400 hours because that would seem to hint Fallout 4 is heading towards being completed in time to hit its November release date. There are plenty of people in the gaming and retail communities who are worried this game will get pushed back to 2016. Certainly, if it really is that big there could be potential setbacks that would require a later release date.
The Witcher 3, one of the most massive open world games to be released on the current generation consoles had to have its launch date pushed back a couple of times. Still, Bethesda seems to understand that fans of the series have been anticipating this game for a number of years and giving a release date it can’t hit will do damage to the company’s popularity. Fallout 4 is slated to launch on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One on November 10, 2015.
