Fallout 4: Is PC Release Going To Be A Nightmare?

Fallout Vault

The last game in the series was released in 2008 and Fallout 4 is being released after close to 7 years since the last mainline game.

Owning digital games may come as a great convenience for many even if it does come with a few unique obstacles.

The size on Xbox one is about 20GB and Steam says that it needs 30GB, but on PC that is usually greatly exaggerated. Those with slow internet connections will hugely benefit from this especially as the game is to weighs 28GB on the Xbox One.

We can confirm that Fallout 4 will have preloading on Xbox One, PS4, and PC so you have a few days to download the game before 11/10. Nevertheless, while having the option to test out a game before buying it is generally helpful, it's understandable for Bethesda to have opted out of a demo for Fallout 4, as such a piecemeal offering could have detrimentally affected fans' perception of the title. "Exact day/time TBA", Bethesda vice president of PR and Marketing Pete Hines said.

As the Inquisitr reported earlier this month, Bethesda has already confirmed that all PC copies of the game will have to be activated through Steam. Forcing people to download part of a game because you think it will defray piracy for a vanishingly small amount of time is a silly way to safeguard sales.

PS4 owners can bag themselves a sweet looking new theme if they pre-order digitally, no sign of Fallout 3 though.

In any case, the important thing is that Fallout 4 is now nearly close to launch, and if history is any indication, it has the potential of surpassing Skyrim and nearly everything that Bethesda has done until now. The company also promised-through the "Fallout 4" season pass - that there will be several free updates coming.

And because it's an RPG, it's very important that Bethesda get its gameplay right if they want players to actually have fun with the game and experience it properly from start to finish.
