Bethesda is adding another gameplay-affecting microtransaction to Fallout 76 as part of its latest Atomic Shop update. The update has added Scrap Kits as a Utility Item, which will allow players to consume a Scrap Kit to scrap junk items in their inventory and deliver it immediately to their Stash. A single Scrap Kit will cost players 50 Atoms, or approximately .50 cents, but can be bought in stacks of six and 15 for 10% and 50% off respectively. Fallout 76 introduced gameplay-altering microtransactions in April with the addition of Repair Kits. A Repair Kit would, as the name implies, repair the condition of any single item to 100% condition and would consume the Repair Kit. Repair Kits could be purchased with real money in a similar fashion to how Scrap Kits are purchased. The introduction of Repair Kits resulted in controversy after Fallout 76 players grew frustrated with Bethesda both breaking a promise and influencing gameplay through monetization. The promise came from Bethesda … [Read more...] about Fallout 76 Adds Another Gameplay Microtransaction

At E3 2018, Bethesda officially announced Wolfenstein: Youngblood, a spinoff of the rebooted Wolfenstein franchise starring BJ Blazkowicz’s twin daughters Jess and Soph. The big selling point that helps this Wolfenstein stand apart from the others is the ability to play co-op through the campaign, and so some may be wondering if it will support split-screen. Unfortunately for those hoping to play through Wolfenstein: Youngblood in split-screen with a friend, it’s been confirmed that the game will not have split-screen support. This is according to senior gameplay designer Andreas Ojerfos, who spoke about the lack of split-screen in the game to Metro and explained why Wolfenstein: Youngblood does not have split-screen. According to Ojerfos, it would have been “great” to include split-screen in Wolfenstein: Youngblood and that many of the developers at MachineGames would’ve liked to see it implemented. However, the team is … [Read more...] about Does Wolfenstein: Youngblood Have Split-Screen?
Following its official reveal last year, MachineGames is now a little more than a month away from launching its latest title, Wolfenstein: Youngblood. At Bethesda’s E3 2019 showcase, the title was given some stage time, revealing a brand new trailer as well as some gameplay details which aim to shake up the familiar shooter mechanics fans may have gotten used to with the previous two games. During a hands-on demo with the game, fans also now know about how long they’ll be fighting Nazi enemies as BJ’s twin daughters Jessica and Sophia Blazkowicz inside an alternative 1980’s timeline. The topic of how long Wolfenstein: Youngblood will take to complete was recently addressed by Jerk Gustafsson, the executive producer at MachineGames. When asked specifically how long it would likely take players to beat the campaign, Gustafsson pegged the experience to last anywhere between 25-30 hours if the player does everything the game has to offer. Oddly enough, Gustafsson … [Read more...] about Wolfenstein Youngblood: How Long Does it Take To Beat?
Fallout 76 is finally going to feel more like a Bethesda game after its Wastelanders update. Fallout 76 Wastelanders update will bring Human NPCs for the first time along with story quests, dialogue options, and branching choices that have consequences. Previous Fallout games like Fallout 4, have dialogue options to choose from while interacting with NPCs. Fallout 76 chose a different approach much to the dismay of the fanbase, which now, Bethesda is fixing with Wastelanders update. Factions of Settlers and Raiders aim to make the world their own and claim a rumored fortune. Embark on a new main quest of choice and consequence, interact with characters and their unique stories, discover the faction settlements of Crater and Foundation, and collect powerful new weapons and armor. Your choices decide their fates. Fallout 76 NPCs will have their own stories and it will be up to the players to choose how to interact with them.
