Fallout 76 To Stop PvP Bullying

With Fallout 76, Bethesda is planning to stop people from bullying other players in multiplayer PvP experience.

So far, what we know about upcoming action role-playing game Fallout series is that a new installment titled Fallout 76 is already announced and it is set to release on November 14, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We also know that the game will be online multiplayer focused and that raises one particular concern for many. Developers of Bethesda promised that despite being played online, players won't be able to harass each other as they used to in previous titles.

As this is F76 is the first MMO in the whole series, not only it creates scope for numerous opportunities of adventures but also brings a few trouble along with it. Aside from any other hindrance that could ruin the gameplay experience, one major problem is players bullying fellow players but Bethesda might have a solution for that and their Senior Vice President Pete Hines also talked about how they are planning on tackling this picky issue that has been going on for some time.

Since the game will avoid using NPCs, the only occupants of that world are either robots or other participating players like you. Not only that, the Wasteland of Fallout 76 is apparently four times larger than any other that you have ever found in any of the previous games of the franchise and developers also introduced an advanced ecosystem for that. There are some very helpful hands around and some ruthless bandits come to play but some downward bullies are going to get it this time.

If you have ever come across one of these sadistic people, you know that they would do whatever they wish just because they can. Upon encountering a stranger in this world, you have to figure out whether that person is a friendly neighbor or an opportunistic seeking marauder. That much tension is normal and allowed but if someone decides to harass you over and over again or keeps killing you repeatedly, the PvP established in the game is designed to stop this from happening.

Other people coming to get you should be seen as just another Deathclaw creature from Fallout 4. You can either try and kill one or die fighting before moving over to do something else. It simply cannot keep chasing you throughout the map. The game simply doesn't allow someone to engage in a grudge against someone and over time, developers will tweak the system even more to improve this function to deliver a leveled playing field for everyone as a measure against cyber-bullying.

Death Stranding E3 Gameplay Revealed

Hideo Kojima is back with another Death Stranding trailer that features a first look at gameplay but still doesn't make much sense.

It's been two years since 2016 that video game genius Hideo Kojima has been teasing us and then leaving us wanting more for more of his upcoming much anticipated action game Death Stranding, which is an exclusive for PlayStation 4. With this one, we are seeing creator of Metal Gear Solid series make a huge comeback and Kojima has something special to show off. Just as predicted, he releases another trailer of the game at E3 2018 conference too blow everyone's mind again.

This marks to be the third trailer that came out for Death Stranding and for the first time in a long while, we get to see a few gameplay moments.




The first teaser that came in 2016 and we got to know that actor Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) is going to be playing the role of protagonist in it. Then at TGA 2016, another footage released where we saw film director Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water) and actor Mads Mikkelsen (Doctor Strange, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) both playing important roles to the story. A few months earlier, Emily O'Brien and Troy Baker has also joined the cast.

Apparently "Porter" and "Bridges" words from previously released clips and poster doesn't indicate to any organization but they in fact belong to the character Reedus is playing, who goes by the name Sam Porter Bridges. This trailer has started with a cinematic opening, then we see a bit of gameplay with different camera angles and then it cuts back to story before switching back to actual playing sequence again. The blend between these moments is naturally meshed to perfection.

The gameplay moments suggests it involves a lot of climbing and scaling to canyons, jungles, mountains and rivers as the story progresses. Sam travels these unfriendly regions to make deliveries of boxes in backpacks, tight-wrapped dead bodies and what not. While carrying a baby in a pod, he goes from one place to another because he can sense those mysterious shadow entities approaching that has taken over the world and can come back if they happen to eat him alive.

The female character played by French actress Léa Seydoux (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Spectre) who talks to Sam in the beginning, seems to have almost the same gift as Sam but maybe better and she seems to know a lot about what's going on than he does. It appears that he can sense those creatures, whereas she is able to even see them. She offers him to work for her which he gently declines and then called him by his name before departing to his ultimate surprise.

New revelation regarding the threats of that world is likely to be race of extraterrestrials in form of some sort of shadow demons. These near-invisible floating entities causes to rain whenever they appear, which is called "Timefall" and whatever it touches, ages rapidly. We previously saw that happening to Sam's colleagues in the last trailer before they were devoured. Though not visible, they do leave footprints on ground that resembles to a webbed foot of a giant frog.

The importance of silence in their presence is brought up by the new female lead once again and we think it hints us that stealth will be a very important aspect of the game. They often ignore sounds but do react to breathing for some unknown reason. Also, whenever one of those beings touches someone or eats them, they die but some people have the ability to come back. So does Sam but when he does, it causes a massive nuclear-like explosion that leaves a massive crater.

Don't Forget Your Cryptobiotes

We see Léa Seydoux's character eating little caterpillar-like creatures with human skin called cryptobiote that has a resistance against Timefall, who previously mentioned about sharing "DOOMS" like her. This means, she can come back from dead as well with same side effects. The second female lead introduced near the end of the clip was actress Lindsay Wagner (Bionic Woman, Six Million Dollar Man), who reveals almost nothing about her role except a connection to Sam.

Despite making more scenes public, Kojima has still left the fans wandering in a maze they were in since the first teaser, proving this is how you showcase a game. He definitely has a creative but weird and beautiful world in his mind for Death Stranding, which he slowly revealing like puzzle pieces. This project is being developed by his independent game developing studio Kojima Productions. As a plus side of this new reveal, we got our hands on tons of brand-new screens and posters of the game.

Doom Eternal E3 Teaser

Bethesda's E3 2018 press conference gave the devil its due by unveiling Doom Eternal, a sequel to 2016's rebooted title.

Many eager gamers have been waiting for a sequel to the best first-person shooter games ever made and we are talking about none other than 2016's Doom game from the newly rebooted series by developer id Software and publisher Bethesda Softworks. Eventually, the upcoming title from the franchise titled Doom Eternal was announced today by Bethesda during their E3 2018 conference and for starters, we have a brand-new teaser that is full of breath-taking action.

Prepare yourself for the ultimate ride with the devil in fiery land of dead as the gates of Hell are opening once again.

As the teaser opens, what we can see is that a backdrop which does not seem like Mars but resembles much to Earth. Buildings are on fire, freakish creatures and monstrosities like Revenants are wandering around while the camera goes forward through debris. It's definitely Earth and demons from Hell has taken over and running rampant. We see a skull belonging to Baron of Hell, which is crushed by Doomguy only to face a horde of demons while he loads a double-barreled shotgun.

Back in April, Pete Hines of Bethesda cryptically hinted that Doom 2 may be announced at E3 2018 during an event at PAX East, so this doesn't come as a surprise to us. Reboot of Doom in 2016 was a re-imagining of the original game and most probably, the sequel will follow the second one, Doom II: Hell on Earth. Although there is no mention of "Hell on Earth" anywhere in upcoming sequel's title, the entire settings of demons reigning on Earth seem pretty reminiscent of that phrase.

RELATED: Doom's Nintendo Switch Release Date

Doom Eternal is expected to release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One but we don't have a release date in hand right now. Even though we haven't seen any new enemies yet, that cool shotgun is a hint that there will be new weapons. A gameplay live-stream will be held on August 10 during Quakecon and we can certainly hope to get more details on the story as well as gameplay for sure. If they can keep up to the expectation of players and maintain excellence, the sequel could also be a critical and commercial success.

Fallout 76 E3 Trailer

Bethesda's E3 2018 trailer for Fallout 76 reveals it to be a prequel four times larger than any other Fallout game.

Only a few days ago, Bethesda took a whole day teasing an upcoming Fallout game on social media and then revealed it afterwards with a teaser trailer. When Fallout 76 was announced, players were confused because they were sort of expecting something like "Fallout 5". Despite having a few glimpses at what it looks like, we had very little to go with but now that E3 2018 is here and they released a trailer that confirms many theories and rumors while giving us a detailed look.

Lets' dive into this brand-new trailer for upcoming Fallout 76 game released by publisher Bethesda at their E3 2018 press conference.




RELATED: E3 2018 News and Rumors

With the initial look of the surrounding, we notice a much more alive in-game world than of Fallout 3 or Fallout 4. A West Virginia neighborhood that is still quite intact than being reduced into a wasteland is where the player explores around while we were humming to John Denver's legendary folk song "Take Me Home, Country Roads" in background. This one surely looks like a prequel where it all begins and whatever left of humanity started taking shelters in those vaults for safety.

What we came to learn at the end is that this entry has a game map that is four times bigger in size than any we ever saw in past games from Fallout series. Although, having bigger maps doesn't assure you of the quality of the contents, we can rely on Bethesda, because they usually know what they are doing and this one is considered as one of their most popular franchises. So, we can only hope that they will engage their fans with great content and gameplay flexibility like they always does.

Apart from these, there was a rumor of Fallout 76 being an online multiplayer title before E3 and it turned out to be true after all. While every other developer studio in the industry has been focusing on more multiplayer only titles, Bethesda has remained a reliable company who made single player games and kept the genre alive. However, they are taking a new step now and how far they will go with this mode is still unknown and can only be told later.

It's not like that the studio have not attempted to focus on multiplayer and they apparently did it in past with Fallout Online. In Fallout 76, they will be exploring more of this experience and maybe they are just testing the field for their audience. Being entirely online will also bring change to gameplay and how it is played out as all the other survivors you come across are human beings and not some NPCs. Don't worry just yet because you sure will see your fair share of creatures out there too.

Unless you want to wait to get your hands onto the game to explore the new wild world of Fallout till November 14, 2018, we suggest you manage to get yourself into beta testing or what they are calling it "Break It Early Test Application", which you can have access to if you pre-order Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition only for $199.99. This collector’s edition will give you a wearable T-51 Power Armor helmet, a terrain map, collectible figurines, a steelbook and in-game bonuses.

Fallout 76 will release worldwide for playing on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Whether you decide to pick up the standard edition or power armor edition, you surely are in for an adventure for survival in a world of nuclear annihilation. We are eagerly waiting to see what Bethesda does with this franchise in the upcoming days and how much it evolves.

Anthem Gameplay Details

After long period of waiting, Bioware and Electronic Arts finally released more than a trailer and offered details on gameplay of Anthem.

Long after the first unveiling of the game, developer Bioware and publisher Electronic Arts finally released an official trailer for their open-world action role-playing game Anthem. The game is a main talking topic at E3 2018 press conference as it is coming from the same developers who previously worked on games like Mass Effect and Dragon Age. To satisfy many eagerly waiting fans, some gameplay details and plot elements of the title were revealed as well.

The exciting gameplay footage offers the closer look players have been waiting for all along, following the new cinematic trailer. We already know that it sets up in a dystopian future where society has fallen because "God" has left them but humanity has found shelter. Freelancers among humans are trying to save their peers from a rival group called the Dominion. They are after a force known as "Anthem of Creation" to destroy whatever remains of civilization.

The game allows you to take part with three of your teammates to go and fight against Dominion. Freelancers wearing Javelin exosuits have four different types; Colossus, Interceptor, Ranger and Storm. Just as their name suggests, Colossus is good with hitting hard, Interceptor is lightning-fast, Ranger is versatile in features and Storm is a destructive force. Despite each of these suits have distinct nature; all of them are loaded with enough firepower to take down major obstacles.

You and three of your teammates can pick the one that suits your own style of approaching a mission or just go with the wind. These Javelins are up for some major customization, whether that is gear or guns. As you make sweet progress along the way, every kit and weapon will be unlocked, which means you don't have to buy loot boxes for advancement. There will be micro-transaction but the contents are strictly just some cosmetic items and skins. No pay-to-win mechanism there.

As a multiplayer action role-playing game, it will share a world with whole community of players. It could be night time or day, a stormy weather or clear sky, everyone playing online will experience that simultaneously. The world around you will never be the same and always be on constant change. Bioware has plans of providing post-launch content to expand the story further and maybe arranging time-limited events for everyone to join in to have some good time together.

Anthem release date is currently set for February 22, 2019 when it will see release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game seems to be a fun-ride, which will deliver a unique gameplaying experience mostly when played in teams, because the developers made it to play as group. That way, it is more rewarding for gamers but that doesn't mean you can't ditch a squad and join solo. Although many people are already trying to draw its resemblance with Destiny, it sure is different in many aspects and that will be settled once it comes out.

BioWare and EA finally showcased its shared world action-RPG of Anthem during EA Play, coming in February 2019.

After Mass Effect: Andromeda saw an unexpected sales drop in 2017; developer Bioware and publisher Electronic Arts effectively killed the Mass Effect series. All of their efforts are then invested into the Anthem game project, which also happens to be one of the top 10 most anticipated video games of 2018. We've been promised to get some glimpse at the game in development for some time after it was teased back at E3 2014 but had no luck so far until now.

This expansive trailer offers a much better look and understanding of Anthem game, which is set in a futuristic dystopia.

Bio-mechanical extra-terrestrial creatures are rampaging everywhere and a small band of human survivors forming a fraction known as Freelancers wearing Javelin exosuit fights back in groups against those hostiles a savage environment.

Judging by its action-based gameplay, it is safe to assume that Bioware is finally stepping out of their comfort zone to create something extraordinary. Some are even saying that Anthem is going straight for Destiny's throat but we need to consider that both are two different types of game. After fighting long period in development hell, we sure are glad to see the game finally coming out of closet and hope that EA does not mess it up post-launch with some of their corporate agenda!

Another video featuring gameplay details is about to drop soon and by the time the game releases, we will likely be seeing more footage of Anthem as well.

New Diablo Game in Development

Blizzard has been working on an unannounced Diablo project and a job listing on their website confirms it.

The last game developer/publisher Blizzard Entertainment released from action role-playing franchise was Diablo III, which came out in 2012 and its second expansion Diablo III: Rise of the Necromancer came out last year on Mac, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This hack and slash dungeon crawler haven't seen a sequel for past six years but maybe that changes now. According to a new revelation, Blizzard is apparently working on a brand-new installment of Diablo.

From a recent list of job listing posted their website shows that the studio is looking for some dungeon artists for a new, yet unannounced Diablo project. They were also looking for a few artists to work on environmental, technical and VFX assets as well as some software engineers. All of the applicants will be hired to work full-time to create a dark fantasy world full of dungeons for their newest title where players will embark on a quest to save the world once again.

The gameplay and world of Diablo series has inspired many RPG over the years and it is high time that the developer finally revives it. Although Diablo III was widely successful, players were quite unhappy with Blizzard mostly focusing on multiplayer mode, aspects of single-player game struggled to thrive. Given today's scenario of so many game companies moving ahead with online games, we are only wondering if they would follow the same path or would they acknowledge fans criticism from past?!

Aside from this fan-favorite game, Blizzard is also responsible for creating hugely popular series like StarCraft and World of Warcraft. Although, they are quite busy with their team-based multiplayer first-person shooter Overwatch, which is ruling major platforms and received positive acclaim from almost everyone. To keep the momentum flowing and keep the entire fan-base happy, they are regularly dropping post-release contents and arranging seasoned events.

While they were away, many other popular RPG franchise has emerged and Blizzard has been long absent from the competition. So, fans are really concerned if they will be able to live up to expectations of modern day fans and reclaim their throne! By the looks of it, things don't seem like that they are completely moving away from the core but sticking to it instead. Hopefully they will make killing demons of Hell and looting rewards.

Fallout 76 Announced

The last game from Bethesda's post-apocalyptic action role-playing game series Fallout was Fallout 4 and it came out in 2015. People were looking for a sequel for some time now and turns out the developers were also preparing themselves with one. After teasing of a possible new entry to the series for a day on various social media, today, Bethesda have finally announced Fallout 76, the next installment from one of their most popular action RPG franchise.

Seems like the developers have made good on the hype they were creating for some time with this latest trailer. Even though the clip does not reveal a clear concept of what crisis are we going to deal with this time, we assume this is when all fights are ceased and probably, it will focus on rebuilding civilization. Vault-Tec mascot Vault Boy signs can be seen in almost everywhere and the video ends with some sole survivor putting on a light blue jumpsuit that marks the number 76 on it.

RELATED: RAGE 2 Officially Announced

Fallout franchise takes place in a post-apocalyptic setting where you are struggling with survival issues and have to lead the game's main protagonist to find their way into the irradiated wasteland Earth has become following "The Great War". Past games from the series were all commercially successful and Fallout 4 among them was able to gain some critical acclaim as well. We can only assume that Bethesda got good with their craft over these years and Fallout 76 will follow its predecessors.

Apparently, Fallout 76 is still under development from Bethesda Game Studios in Maryland and we will get to know more about it at E3 on June 10. Still awaiting a release date, the game is expected to release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Many have speculated that all that teasing earlier was for a remastered version of Fallout 3 or a brand-new sequel to Fallout: New Vegas, none of which was the case after all. Taken cue from John Denver's "Take Me Home, Country Roads" song, we believe the game will be set in West Virginia.
