Fallout 76 Also Won't Have Cross-Play and It's Sony's Fault

Fallout 76 Also Won't Have Cross-Play and It's Sony's Fault

In an interview with German website GameStar.de, Todd Howard, director and executive producer of Bethesda Game Studios said in no uncertain terms that Sony "is not being as helpful as everyone would like". Will the game be a traditional Bethesda single-player RPG similar in feel to Skyrim or classic Fallout titles?

Howard explained, in regards to Fallout 76: "We would have loved [cross-platform] with Fallout 76 but right now we can't".

Bethesda certainly isn't the first to highlight Sony's lack of cross-play enthusiasm and we don't reckon they'll be the last.

Oh my. This is becoming a regular thing, isn't it?

Irish Water said that these urgent conservation messages are of critical importance to marginal supply areas across the country. It's calling on customers to reduce their consumption over the weekend - by not using sprinklers and swapping baths for showers.

Gameplay video revealed players building elaborate settlements in Fallout 76, along with the option to use nuclear missiles to attack enemy settlements and aggressive creatures.

Fresh off the issues that Sony has been having with the whole Fortnite crossplay issue, it seems that that game isn't the only title that's being affected. Going back to Fortnite, there was also the unusual case where PS4 and Xbox One cross-play existed for a brief moment due to a "server error" on Epic's part - which might have been a ploy by the studio just to show how easy and seamless it was to implement. The lesson here is simple: While loyalty absolutely plays a part in overall product sales, gamers also re-evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of platforms with each successive product shift.

Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney believed that Fortnite cross-play between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One was "inevitable". "We are listening and studying all the possibilities", he commented. "I'm confident we'll get to a solution which will be understood and accepted by our gaming community, while at the same time supporting our business". Fast-travel could also presumably be used by enemy players to quickly travel closer to you-which might be an annoyance to those who want to experience the game solo and avoid interactions with others.
