    "Not on our radar right now"

    There are no plans for cross-play in Fallout 76, despite Bethesda Game Studios boss Todd Howard blaming Sony for holding it back. The Japanese giant announced a new stance today, starting with a Fortnite beta which will allow PlayStation 4 owners to play with Nintendo Switch and Xbox One players. It indicated that

  • News New Fallout 76 Video Drops the Bomb on Nuclear Weapons

    This'll blow up

    The latest in Fallout 76's series of educational cartoons is here, and this time, the focus is on nuclear weapons. It's a typically comical little trailer, but it also highlights an interesting aspect of Bethesda's first online multiplayer title.

    Fallout 76’s promised B.E.T.A. will begin (and presumably break) in October, ahead of the title’s 14th November launch. The test will be available on Xbox One first, with the PlayStation 4 to follow after an unspecified period of exclusivity. Anyone who pre-orders the title at participating...

  • News A Fallout: New Vegas Situation Is Unlikely to Happen Again, Says Bethesda

    The studio's grown

    Following on from the huge success of Fallout 3 back in 2008, Bethesda looked to capitalise on the series' rebirth with Fallout: New Vegas, which launched around two years later. However, Bethesda saw fit to give the spin-off project to legendary role-playing game studio Obsidian, so that it could concentrate on upcoming titles...

  • News Fallout 76's Beta Will Brave the PS4 After the Xbox One

    Staying in the Vault

    Even the most optimistic among you will probably expect Fallout 76 to launch in a less than desirable state when it arrives on 14th November, so it’s probably not worth panicking over the title’s beta being delayed on the PlayStation 4. This seems like it’s down to some sort of marketing arrangement, as PC players will...

  • E3 2018 Bethesda Says Fallout 76 Won't Allow Players to Grief, Doesn't Explain How

    Hmmm

    There's currently a bit of a backlash surrounding Fallout 76. While we fully recommend waiting to see what finished game has in store before casting judgement, it's hard to ignore the fact that so many fans are expressing distaste over the title's persistent online world. If you haven't already heard, yes, you have to be online in order to...

  • Guide Fallout 76 - Everything We Know So Far

    Release date, platforms, power armor edition

    During its E3 2018 press conference, Bethesda blew the next entry in the Fallout franchise wide open. It's called Fallout 76, and it's an online survival game as opposed to an open world single-player RPG. Think a more casual Rust or Day-Z set in a post apocalyptic environment and you're on the...

  • E3 2018 Fallout 76 Can't Be Played Alone, There Will Always Be Other Players

    Uh oh

    Hmmm, is that trouble we can smell brewing? During Bethesda's E3 2018 press conference, we got a bit of an information blowout on Fallout 76 -- the always online, multiplayer Fallout title that launches in November of this year. However, even after the show was over, many fans still wondered whether they could set up private...

    Take me home

    Fallout 76 got an info blowout during Bethesda's E3 2018 press conference, as expected. So, let's run down all of the big details to start with. Yes, this is a multiplayer Fallout title. You'll be able to both fight alongside and against other players, all in the same open world wasteland. It sounds like the game requires an online...

  • E3 2018 Fallout Shelter Launches Today on PS4

    Community manager

    As rumoured much earlier in the week, Fallout Shelter will launch today on the PlayStation 4, bringing with it a Platinum Trophy and some top-notch community management.

    Gets a new trailer

    Fallout 76 got a new in-engine trailer during Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference, giving us just a touch more insight into what the game will be about. According to Bethesda, the title will feature an open world that's four times as big as the one in Fallout 4. No release window or any further details were given, so expect an...

The game has been available on phones and Xbox One for quite a while now, but this will be its first appearance on a PlayStation device. The title allows you to create your own shelter,...

  • News Fallout 4's Base Building Mechanics Nearly Never Made It into the Game

    Constantly on the cutting block

    You either loved or hated them, but there's no denying that Fallout 4's base building mechanics formed a large part of the open world experience, which structured itself around defending your outpost from hostile attacks and developing relationships with other settlements. What you might find interesting then is...

  • News Fallout 76 Is Going All-Out at E3 2018

    Bethesda gets the big one

    Every year, one of E3's biggest games gets pasted across the towers of The Hotel Figueroa in Los Angeles. We're going to assume that this prime advertising space costs quite a bit of cash to secure, so the fact that Bethesda's nabbed it for Fallout 76 is perhaps an indication that the publisher is going all-in on...

  • Rumour Fallout 76 Release Date Could Be July, According to Leak

    That would be fast

    We know that Bethesda likes to launch its games quite quickly following their initial reveals, so we wouldn't be at all surprised to see the recently announced Fallout 76 release this year. However, according to the title's original Amazon product page, the game could actually hit store shelves as early as next month...

    What the heck? Bethesda has announced Fallout 76 after a day of teasing.

  • News Fallout 4 Game of the Year Edition Wanders onto PS4 Today

    War never changes

    Fallout 4's long awaited but always inevitable Game of the Year edition is out today on PlayStation 4. It includes the base game and all of its downloadable content.

    That's rad

    Fallout 4 got its PS4 Pro patch last week, meaning that the game is now officially supported by Sony's supercharged system. As many of you will no doubt be aware, the open world title doesn't run brilliantly on a standard PlayStation 4, with regular frame rate drops hurting the overall experience. Fortunately, Digital Foundry has...

    We take a look back at all the DLC

    It's almost been one whole year since Fallout 4 launched, believe it or not.

    If you were around for that whole saga with Far Harbor's horrible frame rate issues on PlayStation 4, then you'll know that we here at Push Square take technical performance quite seriously.

    Bottled

    With Nuka World now only days away, Bethesda has saw fit to release a new trailer for Fallout 4's final slice of downloadable content - but don't go expecting a load of new gameplay.

    The saga continues

    PlayStation 4 mod support for Fallout 4 has fallen foul of another setback today as Bethesda has revealed that the incoming mods beta on Sony's console has been delayed.

  • DLC Review Making Settlements a Little More Fun with Fallout 4's Contraptions

    They call me the tinkerer

    Fallout 4's Contraptions add-on is the kind of downloadable content that a lot of players are going to brush aside. It's not the sort of DLC that'll drag lapsed survivors kicking and screaming back to the Commonwealth, and it's certainly not the kind of add-on that's going to breath hours upon hours of new life into...

  • E3 2016 Bethesda Admits Fallout 4's Dialogue System Isn't All That Great

    Let's talk

    Fallout 4's overhauled, voiced dialogue system is easily one of its most criticised elements, with many fans believing that its simplicity takes away from what made the more complex speech trees of previous titles enjoyable. Although we don't think it's quite as bad as some make it out to be, we can certainly see where the criticism is...
