Fallout 4 has been one of the most played games of all the entire series, which was released in 2015. Though many of the Fallout 4 fans suggested a multiplayer mode but the developers of the game itself didn’t want to have the very same concept in the game. This game has gathered immense popularity over the year because of the theme of the game as the players find it really engaging and wanted to experience it with their friends. But, the creators are still against introduction of the same. Before moving forward we should probably know what the Fallout series is and why it is so popular.
What is Fallout?
Fallout is a famous role playing game series based on the post-nuclear apocalyptic world..The series has been developed by Bethesda game studios and is available for the iOS, Android, Xbox one and windows users. The most popular amongst this series is Fallout 4 where the game is present in the open world of Boston and Massachusetts, locale as “The Commonwealth” in the year 2287.
The gameplay displays some new features with some old ones including the camera that could swap between the first and the third-person perspective. The new features include a coated armor system, base building, a system that displays 111,000 dialogues. It also includes a formulating system to ransack every possible object in the game and many more features were also added simultaneously.
Fallout 4: The main theme
The immense popularity of the game has been drawn by its main theme, which is, an alone player who apparently is the last person on the post-apocalyptic Earth who eventually gets to know about their child’s kidnapping. (too many Ands used in the sentence)[Hence, the game starts with several obstacles & gain points along with features that include weapons, shelter construction, and so much more. In essence, this game allows you to do drugs while fighting for everything that is needed for a living.]
The storyline of the game has a light and dark humour, tragedy, mystery and some of the references of pop culture and so on. It makes it more interesting and inviting a person to play this game.
Fallout 4: Fallout 4-76, a multiplayer mod
SKK50, to launch a mod that gets filled in with the workings of Fallout 76 into the game itself which is known as Fallout 4-76. It molds the game into the most wanted multiplayer junction by creating it into griefer’s wonderland.
The term “griefers” holds on to those who make their only ambition to make the other players feel miserable, most probably by killing them, so they couldn’t achieve the task. This multiplayer mod will compel the players to be either the human player or the opposing player.
This mod discarded the other NPCs(Non-Player Characters), just to add these human attacking players. The next thing that’s added is now you can add nukes onto the map which are not as difficult to ignore but you never know they might attack you with the nuclear bombs. Their main aim is to scorn the human player but there are still many measures for you to stay alive and active.
Fallout 4 : No multiplayer or coop mode
The mod was capable of replicating the multiplayer mode by creating Fallout 4-76 but it didn’t actually had it, as it doesn’t enable two human players to play simultaneously. Many fans suggested the director of the series, Todd Howard, to have this particular mode in the game but he already discussed it with his team even before he began coding for the game.
The sole purpose of the game is that the player is the lone survivor on the earth who fights against the griefers and NPCs which makes the game engaging. Adding a multiplayer mode would destroy the theme. As many of the fans who love playing it as the only human player because they don’t have to compete with anyone else, just fight the obstacles and move ahead.
But there are still other fans who even wanted to share the space with their friends, so they tried their level best to find the Fallout 4 co-op(co-operative) mode. They wanted this mode so they could play with other their mates and not just that, they even tried every other alternative to find similar mode by finding links for the multiplayer mode for their PCs.
But neither of them has it and the developers think that it won’t go well because adding multiplayer would make it all together with a different game and it would not showcase the real moto of the game.
Another similar apocalyptic game is the zombie apocalypse mod, which is really exciting.
