Todd Howard, one of the top executives of Bethesda Softworks, has spoken at the conference of the American company itself about Bethesda’s Fallout 76 catches a Lot of Flak has received, one of its most risky bets as a study.
“Fallout 76 was a type of game we had never done before, and we had a lot of pitching problems, ” Howard acknowledged. “We have received many criticisms that were well deserved, but the team has continued to work on it and you have continued to play it and, through it, something fantastic is emerging. And it is thanks to you.”
“This video game has one of the best online communities we’ve ever seen,” said the executive, before joking. “We have made a post-apocalyptic game in which you can do whatever you want, and most people are being nice to each other. There are no massacres, but quite the opposite … People have water and food for newbies. No, I know you, but this gives me great hopes for humanity for when the apocalypse comes. “
“We have many things in the bedroom to continue improving the video game,” said Todd Howard, as a prelude to the presentation of human characters for Fallout 76 or its battle royale mode.
Bethesda responds to criticism for microtransactions in ‘Fallout 76’
Some time ago, Bethesda launched the new Fallout 76 store known as Atomic Shop, along with the promise that the studio would not encourage players to acquire items that are beneficial within the game since only cosmetic items would be found.
However, the community exploded when the study decided to add new ” Repair Kits “, which was taken as an article that would benefit the players and many felt outraged, as they thought Bethesda did not take the promises he made to Your fans
Subsequently, Bethesda implemented the new update to Fallout 76, along with a “thank you note” to the community, who continue to support the title and continue to be heard either for better or for worse, returning to the issue at hand that is their promise with the Atomic Shop.
In this way, the developer clarified that the Repair Kit does not break the promise of “not providing items that offer competitive advantage”, since these are simply a “convenient risk” that does not offer a and to players, but may well be a utility half that serves to repair the weather of the world.
Besides, the study confirmed that these should not necessarily be acquired with real money, since they can also be unlocked by playing normally and even, they claim that if they notice any benefit to the players, they will quickly withdraw them from the store and apologize for the inconvenience.
At the moment, the community did not react to this explanation of Bethesda Softworks, but considering the cataclysm unleashed by the implementation of these articles, it is unlikely that they will take this note in a good way.
It only remains to wait and see what will happen with Fallout 76, but Bethesda seems to be committed to continuing complying with its community, solving errors and adding new content to the title, as we could see with the recent update of Wild Appalachia.
