Fallout 4 Wishlist: 6 Things Could Make the Game Better

Fallout 4 is one of the best open-world games of all time. The game itself is great where gamers get the feeling of struggling for survival in the dystopian ruins of Boston. You’ll find yourself creeping among hollowed-out buildings, raider outposts and running for your life as mutated dogs ravenous for your flesh hound you. Although after Fallout 4’s release, Bethesda has released several patches to address some of the issues present at the game’s launch, there are a couple of things that can easily boost the gamers’ experience with Fallout 4. We are listing 6 such Fallout 4 below:

Faction Mission Packs

In the game, the way players are inducted into factions seem pretty rushed. Although Elder Maxson keeps telling how including the player is a massive risk but from that point on the player moves along with smoothly and pretty fast. Which is why we propose a standalone pack that’ll explore the ramifications of signing up to band with the Brotherhood. As you probably know, many things about the Brotherhood (like practices and objectives) are unknown and unexplored. So there are a ton of things we could do with faction mission packs.

Massive Overhaul Patch

Since its launch, Fallout 4 has been suffering from buggy gameplay, occasionally stilted faces, NPC animations jumping from one priority to the next and constant clipping between textures. Instead of getting fixes every hour of every day, we’d appreciate if there was one massive overhaul patch.

More Underwater Content

It’s a trend in games set in open-world is likely to feature mountainsides, townships and underwater areas. But it’s a fact we don’t usually get to explore underwater areas properly. It’s worth mentioning that GTA: San Andreas was the first one to really make deep-sea diving a ‘things,’ while The Witcher 3 has a story centred around a quest that saw gamers digging deep into the depths of the sea. It’s worth noting that PC users uncovered codes in the game’s file for a harpoon gun.

More Weapons and Drop-Rates

We’d want to see more weapons added with frequent access to legendary ones (since they are always the most fun to try out). When it comes to epic weapons, it’s frequency is too low while small weapons like baseball bats, spinning buzzsaw blades or pistols with incendiary bullets are too easy to get.

Exploring the Rest of Wasteland

Any fallout fan would agree that there’s an urge to comb the wilderness of the dystopian world. We realize that it’d take away the drive and assumption built up from years of past releases. After finishing the story, players can see the northern half of the map. But we’d need something to prompt us in the direction, like distress beacons, characters, mission packs, anything.

A Proper Settlement Tutorial & Associated Missions

We obviously don’t have the above and are simply left to figure out everything on our own. Although a couple of fans probably like this approach, the opposing side is stronger with the argument. We’d like a proper settlement tutorial and associated missions. If the gamers knew what they are doing, then the implementation of certain feature would make more sense.

What Platforms Fallout 4 Supports? Which was one good?

The game was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Once you install the game into PS4 or Xbox One, you’ll be subjected to a set of animated videos explaining the game’s S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system to keep you distracted while it installs, which will take around 30 minutes while on PC, it’ll take more. The game’s frame rate on both PS4 and Xbox One looks consistent. When using some of the big weapons, the games seem to lag on both PS4 and Xbox One while on the PC, lag wasn’t a concern. Speaking of performance, there is difference between the PS4, Xbox One, and PC version, all running at 1920×1080. Both load timing and performance on PC has been excellent. It’s worth noting that crashes are still a problem, regardless of the platform you buy it on.

PlayStation 5

There’s a rumour that PlayStation 5 will come out in the year 2018. It’s likely that the Fallout 5 will come out in the same year so we are speculating it’ll be Fallout 5 ready. We are hoping that the next instalment of the game will be flawless and even better that the current one, with extra content.

Fallout 4 VR:

At the E3 2016, Bethesda Softworks announced that they are working on a virtual reality mode for Fallout 4, which is set to launch in 2017. Fallout 4’s conversation interface, which is just text overlaid on the screen in the current game, will probably need to be tweaked for VR. Besides this, Bethesda also mentioned some Doom content coming to virtual reality.

Fallout 4 Release Date

In 2008, Pete Hines of Bethesda Softworks stated: “The whole reason we went out and acquired the license and that we now own Fallout is that we clearly intended to make more than one.” On January 2013, Fallout 3 voice actor Erik Dellums hinted via Twitter that his character, Three Dog, would be returning. In the same year, an alleged ZeniMax-funded website, thesurvivor2299.com, was created that contained several coded messages and morse code, and most notably a timer believed to be counting down to an announcement or teaser trailer for Fallout 4. Fallout 4 was launched on November 10, 2015.

Fallout 4 Price

Upon its release, Dan Stapleton of IGN scored the game 9.5 out of 10 and wrote: “The world, exploration, crafting, atmosphere, and the story of Fallout 4 are all key parts of this hugely successful sandbox role-playing game.”  The price of the Fallout 4 for PS 4, Xbox One and PC is $ 39.99.

Fallout 4 Updates

Ridden with issues since its launch, Bethesda has been consistently issuing updates and patches. The first patch, patch 1.2, fine-tuned the game by improving the frame rate in heavy areas around the game, such as in the Corvega factory. The latest patch, patch 1.5, has brought bug fixes, glitches in the game and added a revamped survival mode along with support for the upcoming downloadable content.

Fallout 4 Official Trailer

The official trailer of the game came out on Jun 3, 2015, under the following note: Fallout 4 is the next generation of open-world gaming from the award-winning creators of Fallout 3 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Bethesda Game Studios.

Fallout 5

Fans are eagerly waiting for Fallout 5 but the title is a few years down the line. With each passing day, the excitement around the game is rising. Like the previous version, the Fallout 5 is likely to release on all three gaming platforms – PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. We believe the release date of the game will clash with that of PlayStation 5, so the console will be ready for the upcoming installment of the game.

Final Words

Fallout 4 is one heck of a game, and honestly we can’t wait for the next instalment. It’s an answer to complete entertainment for gamer. We hope you enjoy the game as much as we do. While the wait is unbearable long for Fallout 5, till then we must all make-do with the current version which is awesome in itself.
