    From what Todd Howard said, its gonna be ALWAYS ONLINE, but you are not required to team up. Which ultimately means, if you want a solo experience look elsewhere. Not a fan of the whole Nuke aspect either. I just finish my base after several hours of material gathering, and caps spent on the CAMP tool and boom some greifer with nothing better to do nukes it. Awesome... Or they nuke/kill the quest givers and now I can no longer do my quests (unless they are invincible). Not a fan of having to watch my back constantly in a game that's supposed to be story driven, full of easter eggs, and immersive. The whole fun of Bethesda SP games is searching every nook and cranny for cool stuff. I've been slowly playing FO4 doing hundreds of side missions and slowly picking my way through the BOS to
    resurrect Liberty Prime
    .
    In Skyrim I've done maybe 3 main story quests, the rest I've been building the strongest character and gear I possibly can and checking out all the different dungeons and side stories.

    The whole forced MP thing is really going to turn a lot of people off. I probably won't pick this title up until someones either modded it to run solo servers or its like 15 bucks on steam sale and the servers are all dead.

    He said that all your building and leveling is kept, even in death. Don't think the trouble of getting all the code to get nukes in order to hit another player (that will ultimately do no lasting damage) will be on the high priority list. I think it's going to be used more for resource looting and hitting boss level monsters.

    That documentary was a great watch and insightful, thanks for linking it up! :thumbsup:

    After watching that, other videos and threads, and seeing all the other blockbuster releases coming out of E3..this is now pretty much on the lower end of my list.

    I had to go listen to John Denver earlier. Had 'Take Me Home, Country Roads' stuck in my head.

    Had a chance to educate myself on the recent FO76 online debacle. From my understanding is that they are looking to eventually implement a dedicated solo server capability that wont be available until later on after launch? Im thinking I might wait until this is def confirmed as up till now I was ready to walk away from this, but as @jhodge83 was describing I do like the potential of "nuking" things for the greater good in terms of big bosses and the like.

    Considering Fall out in general seems to have good intentions with things, I get a feeling this game will be better than most are predicting based off the scarce info we know at this point. That said though, Im not preordering anything.

    apparently you also need to nuke fissures in the crust to stop those big ass, skyrim dragon looking things. there are groups already establishing on the r/FO76 for discord groups to do different things. some are helping others, traders, and some are raider types. just depends on what you're wanting to do, join a group and have at it.

    oh...and there's going to be a random perk situation depending on rad levels, etc...so soak up that nuke fallout goodness.

    and free DLCs w/ microtransactions in game. all items in microtransactions can be earned in game as well. "microtransacrions will only be cosmetic."

    https://www.reddit.com/r/fo76/comments/8r3edv/todd_howard_answers_even_more_questions_about_fo76/

    • 2:52 - More information about how it will compare to fo3 and fo4 experience
    • 4:25 - Todd basically says that he understand our anxiety regarding MP and they have kept that in mind during development.
    • 4:45 and 5:18 - There's a story, there's a main quest line, there are side quests with some repeatable, and there are daily events.
    • 6:05 - at death "you pick a place to respawn", "there's no loss of items"
    • 6:20 - Nuking isn't permanent. Also, you have a chance to deass the area before the bomb lands and goes off. Everything is damaged and can be repaired. Main point is to create a high level PvE zone.
    • 7:15 - stuff about camp building starts
    • 7:50 - when you log off, your camp dissappears and when you come back it reappears. You can also move it. Blueprints!!!
    • 14:50 - An evasive and uncertain answer to the question "what does "next gen" mean when you talk about TES6 and starfield".
    • 16:05 - Current lineup is 76, then starfield, then TES6. No other major releases in between.
