Bethy getting closer and closer to a product I'll enjoy a lot. Today they rolled out a Survival Mode for 76, and renamed the existing game mode "Adventure Mode". They also tweaked the PvP in Adventure Mode so that another player cannot damage you at all unless you return fire.

Maybe one day they will work their way back to getting this game to the type of game it should have been. Nice to see they are making an effort to correct some of their missteps.

Definitely. I also read that a future update will add human NPCs to the game.

It's sounding more like something I'd get, too. Might pick it up when it comes to Steam.

That is awesome! Just a shame that it took Beth 100G of updating to get there.

Installed last night. Only played for a little bit as I was tired, but I made an Appalachian American named Duane Barry and explored around the vault. Gorgeous game, so far.

Do you have it on the Bethesda launcher? How does it work for you? I haven't heard great things about the launcher, so I am hesitant to get it there. But I also buy games off of GOG whenever possible so that not everything I play on PC is through Steam. I want the competition. I know it is coming to Steam this year but I don't think they have announced a date yet. I'll install it on the Bethesda launcher as long as the launcher works well.

I do have it on the Bethesda launcher, yes. I had zero issues redeeming the my code or downloading the game. I let it download in the background while I played Skyrim, and then jumped right in without hassle.
I've had the launcher installed for some time for the Creation Kit, and it's never given me an issue.

Can second that the launcher is not bad. Works fine with Creation Kit.

Been a while since this forum was posted in. Was wondering what folks think about Bethesda's latest shenanigans regarding this game. Me, I'm not a Fallout guy, so can smile and remain above it all.

I think Bethesda was feeling jealous of all the good press that companies like EA and Epic Games have been getting. So they had to do something to work their way onto this list of worthies.

I am not a Fallout 76 person, so I can sit back and laugh too.

Yeah Bethesda Game Studios are so far out of touch. It’s one thing to release a bad game, I mean, every studio is capable of that. It happens. But 76... it ought to be criminal how they’ve mishandled almost every aspect of this game.

It was a train wreck from the very start. An mmo with no NPCs? Great idea. How about a racing game with no race track?

I couldn't watch the video, those guys immediately got on my nerves! What exactly is going on? (I don't feel like Googling).

Whatever it is, I just hope Beth doesn't try to make ES6 an MMO or even a co-op. I hope all their blunders with 76 has made them definitely keep my favorite series single-player, without even a thought of anything else.

I can't, even though I don't have the game. This is so disappointing to see. I love Fallout and I really want this game to succeed, but there is always some new controversy popping up for this game. I want to try this game out myself at some point, but Bethesda is really making it hard to justify doing so.

As annoying and overblown as the anti-Bethesda circlejerk is (not saying you are part of it, of course, Khajiit), I find it very hard to believe that it is the usual gamer outrage against Bethesda when the game is getting constantly lambasted for all sorts of issues. Bethesda has been very disappointing with their overall handling of this game.

Now admittedly, I haven't looked into all the details about this latest issue, but from I understand about all the issues in general, I don't see how Bethesda can be justified in even the majority of the issues. The canvas bags. The excessive amount of bugs even for a Bethesda game. PvP. Unbelievably absurd prices for cosmetics. And now this.

I love BGS. Their games have brought me an immense amount of joy and they gave me my favorite (TES) and one of my favorite (Fallout) series. But I won't be an apologist for them. I hope this isn't just BGS trying to press their luck with consumers or being complacent with their games. This makes me concerned about what will happen with Starfield and TESVI.

I guarantee that won't happen, at least. We already have an Elder Scrolls MMO and they haven't shown any interest in regular co-op previously. Still, I am concerned about what this potentially means for TESVI (and to a lesser extent, Starfield).
