Could Fallout 4 pull a Assassin’s Creed Unity?
So here’s a scary thought. Fallout 4… what if it comes to light and we all rush to our local retailers or our preferred online marketplace and put in our pre-orders for the game, only to have it revealed to use that it requires a massive “day one patch”.
Or that it will require an update to enable certain elements of in game functionality? What then? What if the game we’ve all been waiting for has fallen prey to the disgusting trend that is sweeping the development end of the gaming industry? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not writing this out of the want of creating hype or negative press for a property that I love. I’m writing this out of a general concern for something that I’ve loved for a huge portion of my life.
Bethesda aren’t beyond fault, we all know that far too well, but is it possible that Fallout 4 could pull an Assassin’s Creed Unity? Could the game descend from the sky shrouded in clouds, only for the clouds to part and reveal a half-assed product? It’s entirely possible, and that’s a scary thought. As Yahtzee of The Escapist Magazine once said, “You couldn’t get away with releasing a buggy game in the cartridge and cassette days – you’d get sentenced to a trampling under the company brontosaurus.”
IWe can only hope that the trend of, what can only be described as money hungry development, doesn’t change the fate of our long awaited Fallout 4.
