Potential Fallout 76 Leak Reveals Details About Story

Published

on

Since Bethesda revealed ‘Fallout 76’ many games have been scrambling to find as much information as possible about the highly anticipated title.

In a post from LuckyBastardGaming, a number of details, that are being described as a “leak, about the game’s storyling have been shared.

Keep in mind that this is just a rumor.

  • The game is still an RPG
  • Voiced protagonist is optional.
  • More dialogue options.
  • Proper skills are back.
  • There is a major emphasis on “rebuilding” aka settlement building, which a couple of players can partake in doing, or you can go solo and do it, or you can just flat out ignore it.
  • Main quest line and yea Bethesda actually listened to Fallout 4’s feedback. They are aiming for a plethora of side quests that aren’t just radiant.
  • Since it’s only a few decades after the Great War many people and remnant factions are still around. Many military veterans, police officers, doctors etc.
  • Main (personal story) is vault tec focused and an example of a major player in the story is an Irish ghoul who also acts as one of the games 5 companions, this guy is a great character who designed many of the vaults and who was married to Stanislaus Braun’s daughter, but whose work was stolen by Braun and twisted into the vault-tec experiments of which the ghoul feels immense guilt for. He calls Vault 76 the only true example of what his work was intended for.A  major antagonist, or ally (depending on choice), is a former US Army Captain who likens himself to Hannibal of Carthage and has giant radiated elephants in his army who he “saved” from a local zoo. His men have no tacky Carthage outfits like Caesar Legion wore romanesque skirts and football padding though.
  • More Lovecraftian God worshiping inbred rednecks similar to point lookout.
  • No Supermutants.
  • But, Harold is in the region and game somehow.
  • Yeah, Bethesda is switching the lore up a good bit, precursors to the BOS are somehow in Virginia, even though they originated in California…can’t say I was happy to find that out. It’s pretty lazy.
  • The main quest is written by Chris Avellone so it should be good. Secondary main quest aka the Faction Wars are written by Emil Pagliarulo as are many of the side quests…
  • Oh, and yeah, Skills are back in full force!

Apex Legends Patch Arrives

Published

on

As we talked about on Monday, a new Apex Legends patch has arrived and it addresses a number of issues with some fixes, and some tweaks.

Here are the patch notes for 1.1.3:

Audio fixes and improvements 

  • Performance
    • Improved audio engine to be around 30% more CPU efficient, lessening the chance of distortion or dropouts.
    • Lowered impact on data loading through code and content changes to improve potential dropout issues.
  • Quality of life
    • Lowered the master volume of all sounds during the character select screen through the end of the drop sequence.
    • Lowered the volume of Wraith’s ambient kunai knife sound for those who are sensitive to the sound. If it is still bothersome we will remove it in a later patch.
    • Increased the volume of close proximity enemy footsteps for all Legends.
    • Increased the priority of enemy footsteps to ensure the sounds play even in heavy combat situations.
    • Slightly lowered the volume of Pathfinder footstep sounds heard from the first person view.
    • Fixed missing or quiet dryfire (out of ammo trigger click sound) and low ammo (the progressive change in sound that the gun makes as the magazine approaches empty) sounds for the R301, Hemlok, Flatline and RE45.
    • Increased the volume of the music that plays when winning a match.
    • Added more detailed audio to the Training mission.
  • Bug fixes
    • Fixed occlusion bug for the “wind down” sound for the Havoc.
    • Fixed issue with automatic weapon fire sounds occasionally getting stuck on, usually after a Legend respawns.
    • Fixed bug with RE45 missing tail sounds (the echo in the environment after the shot) when in close proximity.

Hit detection fixes and omprovements  

Fix for Lifeline “Pick Me Up” banner bug on PS4  

  • The issue has been resolved and we will be re-enabling the banner after the patch is live.

Developer’s Note: We made changes to client and backend to address this and it’ll take a little time to take full effect. We’re expecting the error to resolve within a few hours after the patch is live.

Crashes specific to Intel CPUs (PC Only) 

  • Intel has been notified, but in the meantime, Respawn has provided a workaround in the patch.  In order to keep from crashing, they have lowered the original clock speeds for user CPUs by changing the instructions used by that one function.

Additional bug fixes and changes

  • Fixed issue with the Fortified Passive ability for Gibraltar and Caustic where they would take damage through shields.
  • Fixed the bug that allowed players to stick objects to Gibraltar’s Gun Shield.
    • Admittedly it’s been fun to see the results of this but the behavior is not intended by design and could get out of control.
    • Items will no longer stick to Gibraltar’s Gun Shield, however, it will now deflect Arc Stars.
  • Identified some issues with -novid, and will be disabling the flag until the issue can be addressed.
