Unsurprisingly there are some players who aren’t too thrilled about the new direction that Fallout is headed, but the good news is that you won’t have to deal with other players if you don’t want to. Bethesda’s Todd Howard confirmed that the game will support private games, which means that players won’t have to deal with other players if they don’t want to.
However the bad news is that these private games won’t be available at launch and are expected to come later. Speaking to Geoff Keighley, Howard said, “We will not being able to do that at launch, though. Our goal for launch — this is really new for us — is to have a well-running, robust service, and then some period later, we’re currently still designing what that service looks like, you’ll be able to have your own private world, and be able to mod it and do all of that.”
We’re not sure if cooperating with other players is a must in the game and whether or not players can get by by themselves, but we suppose this is an option for those who’d rather not deal with other players.
