I just hope they go back to an Urban setting rather than the Nevada desert. I'm not sure why but I got much more fun out of running around D.C.

This is AWESOME, but I hope it'll run on something other than another relabelled Gamebryo engine. The community has spent the better part of three years fixing up CreationKit in Skyrim.  :laugh:

 

Anyway, whichever way they go, so long as there's extensive mod support, I'm SUPER EXCITED.

 

(3...2...1... Fallout base-building game for mobile.)

FO:NV was made by Obsidian Entertainment, I'm not sure how much involvement Bethesda had with that game. However, loads of people loved the setting, but I'm hoping for a mix of the two. Massive cities and massive wastelands.

Oh cool, thanks for the info. I either forgot about that or it passed me by. I agree that a mix would be awesome, but I think Fallout 3 did a great job of having D.C. as the urban environment while still offering wide open expanses. Like I said, I can't really place my finger on why I preferred Fallout 3 over NV.

Same here, the locations in 3 were far more interesting than NV.

 

One thing I hope they have learned is that while they are great at producing a story, location art etc they are utterly incompetent when it comes to code and outsource this part or hire in some competent developers if not we will have 6+months of constant bugs and not the radioactive kind.

PA system failure has occured.

Shutdown of the Masterbrain has been authorized and all sensitive materials have been removed for security purposes.

Please attempt re-access. Have a pleasant day

 

This is hiding in the page source code,  might just be something random or possibly a clue..

 

As long as the game is as full of lore and places to go as NV then I don't care where its set. just give me my exploration fix. D:

I hope so. I just want a fun engaging game with fun gameplay that I can enjoy for 20 - 60 hours at most unless it is really really good. MMO are not that. They can't be. They don't want to be the game you are currently playing, MMOs want to be your whole damn hobby. That's a lot to ask from me.

Well the problem, at least with ESO, is that they couldn't even get basic mmo mechanics down. Like the ability to do quests with your party members. It was and still is a sad, broken, miserable shell of an mmo.

 

When you can't even get questing down right you should know that maybe mmo's aren't your thing.

 

That being said, I agree with you. I just don't have the attention span to sink hundreds of hours into an mmo anymore.

It has to be FO4, doesn't it? It's a much loved franchise so I imagine it was always a matter of when we were getting another one, not if.

 

 

If it is some mobile bull.... or as Shad said an effin' MMO I am going to catch a plane to the U.S. drive up to their HQ in Maryland and hit them all in the head with a hammer.

Whilst a single player FO4 is preferable, I and i'm sure many others would play the shizz out of a fall out mmo.

      Here's why FIFA 21 on PC will be inferior to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S
      by Usama Jawad

      FIFA 21 launched on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC early last month and is scheduled to land on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on December 4. The launch will come as a free update to owners of the game on latest consoles and will pack several new features not available on previous consoles and PC. Now, the publisher has revealed why "next-gen" features won't be making their way to PC platforms.

      FIFA 21 on the latest game consoles includes features such as ball compression, a new camera angle, and muscle deformation. However, none of these will be making their way to the PC because EA wants to lower the barrier of entry in terms of specifications. In an interview with Eurogamer, Executive Producer Aaron McHardy had the following to say:

      Looking at the statement, one has to wonder why EA couldn't figure out some workaround to keep the gen five features as optional on PC so people with powerful rigs could utilize them while gamers on lower-end PCs can simply switch them off for increased performance.

      Given that the minimum requirements of the PC version are quite modest - requiring an Nvidia GTX 660 (2GB VRAM) or AMD Radeon HD 7850 (2GB VRAM), 8GB of RAM, and Intel Core i3-6100 or AMD Athlon X4 880K CPU - it definitely makes sense to not have "next-gen" capabilities on these machines. But ideally, there should have been an option to enable this for gamers on high-end machines.

      Rockstar will offer Red Dead Online as a standalone game priced at $4.99
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Rockstar Games' open-world western epic Red Dead Redemption 2 is gaining a new version soon, as the studio today announced that its online mode is being spun off to be offered as a standalone game. The release date is set for December 1, and it will be available for $4.99 as an introductory price.

      The Red Dead Online standalone version will be the complete online experience, with story-based cooperative missions, player vs player Showdown modes, Specialist Roles, Free Roam Missions, and much more available across the massive open world.

      The $4.99 introductory price will go away after February 15, 2021, bumping up the cost of the standalone multiplayer game to $19.99. Rockstar will also offer an option to unlock the Red Dead Redemption 2 story mode from within this variant, but the exact cost of this upgrade was not announced today.

      Although it is a standalone experience, it doesn't appear as though the installation size requirements are changing, as the studio revealed the game will require up to 123GB of free space.

      Red Dead Online will be available for PC (Steam, Epic Games Store, and Rockstar Games Launcher), Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 users will be able to play the game using backward compatibility also. Moreover, since this is a fully multiplayer experience, PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold memberships are required for console players.

      Xbox Black Friday Sale features Battlefield, Dead Space, and more
      by Asher Madan



      Every week, Microsoft and select publishers discount a number of titles for weekly Deals with Gold, Spotlight, and Publisher sales. This week, games from the Battlefield, Dead Space, and other franchises are available for substantially less. There's also a Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale going on.

      Below, you'll find the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 games with their respective discounts. Xbox Live Gold members receive additional discounts on a number of titles through the paid subscription which is denoted with an asterisk.

      Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One
      Xbox 360
      Many of the Xbox 360 games appear to be backward compatible so you'll be able to play them on your Xbox One and the Xbox Series X|S. Currently, Microsoft isn't adding any more backward compatible titles to the program, but that should change in 2021.

      Microsoft Weekly: Halo 4 finally on PC, more Fluent icons, and optional updates
      by Florin Bodnarescu



      The last week brought Halo 4 for the first time to PC players the world over, a Fluent Design upgrade for Edge icons showed up – as well as multiple new features -, plus some security fixes for a range of Windows 10 versions. You can find info about that, as well as much more below, in your Microsoft digest for the week of November 15 - 21.

      Halo 4 finally on PC


      After much anticipation, the final title in the Master Chief Collection, aka Halo 4, has finally arrived on PC. Bringing cross-play support and a bunch of new enhancements, the game is now live on Steam, the Microsoft Store and Xbox Game Pass for PC. If you’re curious as to what exactly the title has to offer, do take a peek at the review that’s currently up, in which our very own Pulasthi Ariyasinghe calls the FPS a “satisfying conclusion to the Master Chief Collection”.

      Continuing with the first-party news, Sea of Thieves has received its November update, complete with a range of bug fixes, upgrades to Treasure Vault voyages, performance improvements, and much, much more. The update comes in at 6GB on Windows 10, Xbox One X, and Xbox Series X, with the One S and Series S owners receiving a slightly smaller 5GB update. Steam owners are the luckiest with a measly 3.6GB required to download.

      And since we mentioned it, before we get back to the game news, it’s worth interjecting with the fact that new Xbox Series S orders may arrive after the holidays. This is because, unsurprisingly, the Series S is out of stock.

      Returning to first-party games, Minecraft has just gotten a new Star Wars-themed DLC, and if that’s not quite what you want to be playing this week, there’s always a bunch of Deals with Gold to browse, including ones for Code Vein, Dark Souls, Ace Combat 7, and much more.

      Ending this section is a bit of gameplay from both the Xbox One X and Series X for CD Projekt RED’s upcoming open-world RPG, Cyberpunk 2077. Switching between the two consoles frequently, the video highlights interiors, exteriors, combat, and other NPC interactions.

      More Fluent icons


      Regardless of your opinion of the new Edge, one major change in comparison to the Legacy version is that the browser gets updated more frequently than before.

      As such, everybody in the Dev and Canary channels can now start using the text comments in PDFs feature. If you haven’t gotten it yet, the Dev build is 88.0.702, in case you want to try out this capability.

      There are also new features added to Edge this month, like an improved copy-paste experience, better integration with Bing rewards, new shopping features, and much more.

      Staying on the subject of improvements, now when you open history, it will show a pop-up window which allows you to more easily navigate through your previously opened links. Furthermore, you’re now able to pin a history icon next to the address bar for easy access.

      Microsoft was also eager to share the fact that Edge WebView2 is now available for .NET. This, for folks not aware, is the Chromium Edge equivalent of Project Spartan’s (old Edge) EdgeHTML-based WebView. Additionally, the Redmond firm also aims to stop Chromium browsers from launching with elevated privileges.

      Finally, for those of you who wish the company would just stop for a second and update everything to its (for now) unified Fluent Design system, there’s good news. Chromium Edge is going to be getting a new set icons to bring the entire experience more in line with the company’s design aesthetic du jour. The first phase is currently being rolled out.

      Optional updates


      If you’ve been running Windows 10 for a while, you’ll be aware that Microsoft also releases optional updates from time to time, beyond its Patch Tuesday patches.

      If you’re on 1809, or the October 2018 Update, you’ll get KB4594442, which bumps up the build number to 17763.1579 and addresses a security bug with Kerberos authentication and ticket renewal. If you’re running the Anniversary Update (1607), that same fix will come through for you as KB4594441, bumping the build number up to 14393.4048, while folks on the May 2019 Update (1903) and November 2019 Update (1909) will be getting KB4594443, with builds 18362.1199 and 18363.1199, respectively.

      Finally, those on either the May 2020 Update (2004) or October 2020 Update (20H2) will receive KB4594440, with builds 19041.631 and 19042.631.

      Microsoft was busy releasing even more builds however, so here’s what else you need to be on the lookout for:

      May 2019 Update / November 2019 Update (1903/1909): KB4586819, builds 18362.1237 / 18363.1237 – fixes a bug that causes Edge to open in the background when the device is in tablet mode, as well as bugs with USB 3.0 hubs, Narrator, and WMR headsets running in lower resolution modes. October 2018 Update (1809) Enterprise, Education: KB4586839, build 17763.1613 – fixes the same bugs for the version above, as well as the issue which may cause the HDD to fill up in certain error situations. The known issues for all updates above remain the same ones outlined in the Patch Tuesday wave of updates.

      In other news, Microsoft will not release any optional Windows 10 cumulative updates in December. This applies to preview updates (so basically A, C, and D wave updates, rather the B wave ones which come with Patch Tuesday every month). This is due to “minimal operations during the holidays and the upcoming Western new year”.

      Over in the Insider Dev channel, the company unleashed build 20262 with a number of fixes, as well as 20262.1010, the of which was simply a Cumulative Update to test out the servicing pipeline.

      Dev channel
      Polls in Teams meetings have now started rolling out. New Power Apps and Dataverse are now generally available for Teams. Photoshop Beta is now available for ARM-based Windows 10 and macOS devices. WinUI 3 Preview 3 is now out, featuring ARM64 support. Dynamics 365 Project Operations has been announced, aimed at service-based businesses in India. Microsoft 365 is now available from datacenters in Brazil. The November updates for Microsoft 365 include new Teams apps, among other features. Teams personal features are now rolling out on desktop and the web. The Surface Studio 2 has gotten new firmware updates to fix audio performance and stability, with the Go 2 and Book 3 now available for purchase in India. Logging off
      We cap things off with a new security chip that Microsoft intends to introduce for Windows-based devices.



      In what the firm will be dubbing Pluton going forward, Microsoft has announced essentially the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip equivalent, but integrated on the SoC.

      Seen in other solutions like the Xbox consoles or Azure Sphere, this is basically an intersection of software and hardware to provide the benefits of TPM chips in terms of security, but (currently) none of the drawbacks. Specifically, since TPM is separate from the CPU, perpetrators are able to target the channel between the CPU and TPM chip with their attacks.

      Working with AMD, Intel, and Qualcomm on the solution – with AMD being the first to use it -, Microsoft says that the Pluton chip will work with BitLocker and System Guard, and that information can’t be removed from the chip via malware or any other way.

      Integrated with Windows Update in the same way Azure Sphere Security Service integrates with IoT devices, the chip will make sure that firmware updates come directly from Microsoft.

      There’s currently no word as to when we’ll be seeing the chip’s debut in PCs.

      Missed any of the previous columns? Be sure to have a look right here.

      Razer launches Wolverine V2 controller for Xbox and PC with Mecha-Tactile buttons
      by João Carrasqueira

      Razer has announced a new version of its Wolverine wired controller for Xbox consoles - including the new Series X|S and Xbox One - as well as PC. The Wolverine V2 is a wired controller, just like its predecessors, and it packs a couple of improvements over its predecessors.

      First, it has a new design with a more curved grip that should fit more comfortably in the user's hands. On top of that, the grips use rubber instead of plastic, making them less slippery during longer play sessions.

      The face buttons are also using Razer Mecha-Tactile switches, which offer a lower actuation distance of 0.65mm compared to traditional membrane buttons. Previous Wolverine controllers also did this, but the V2 also has a Mecha-Tactile D-Pad, which is shaped like a cross now, instead of being four separate buttons. The Mecha-Tactile buttons are rated for three million presses, so they should be fairly durable. As for the shoulder triggers, Razer has built in a Hair Trigger Mode, which reduces the travel distance needed to actuate the triggers. This can be useful in online games where quick reaction times are crucial.

      The Wolverine V2 is the cheapest of the Wolverine controllers, so it does make some sacrifices compared to the Wolverine Ultimate and Tournament Edition. There's no Razer Chroma RGB lighting on this model, and the "quick access" buttons at the bottom of the Wolverine Ultimate are also not here. Additionally, you only get two customizable multi-function buttons next to the shoulder buttons and triggers, while other models had four (in the Tournament Edition) or six (in the Wolverine Ultimate). These buttons can be customized with the Razer Controller Setup app for Xbox, which can also be used to adjust thumbstick sensitivity.

      The Razer Wolverine V2 is available today directly from Razer for $99.99/€119.99.
