The true Fallout experience
Ever since Morrowind on the original Xbox, Bethesda’s Todd Howard has wanted console gamers to have a comparable experience with PC gamers. One thing has stood in the way of that for The Elder Scrolls and Fallout: mods. Beginning with Fallout 4, mods will no longer be a platform discrepancy.
At Microsoft’s E3 press conference, Howard announced that Fallout 4 mods made on PC would be downloadable on Xbox One. Unless Sony follows suit with this, it definitely looks like Xbox is the way to go among the consoles.
Another tidbit mentioned during the presentation was that Fallout 3 would be included with purchases of Fallout 4. For someone like me who hasn’t yet dove into the series, this is looking more and more like a good starting point. The announcement was made for Xbox One, pairing with the backward compatibility announcement. We have reached out to Bethesda to see if the offer applies to PlayStation 4 as well.
