Fallout 4 criticism, whether it's about the graphics seen in videos or the mechanics detailed by developer Bethesda, isn't upsetting the studio, as its teams know that it can't please every single person out there with its projects.
Fallout 4 was revealed earlier this year by Bethesda through all sorts of different videos, screenshots, and, of course, details about its mechanics., as part of its comprehensive E3 2015 press conference.
While the general reception was very impressive, thanks to the many new ideas showcased by the studio, there have been concerns about certain aspects, like the visuals or some of the gameplay features.
Bethesda isn't worried about criticism
Some of these concerns have been addressed by Bethesda in past statements, in which it explained that the post-apocalyptic RPG is still in development and that the quality is going to increase as we get closer to its debut this fall.
The studio's Vice President of PR and Marketing Pete Hines mentions that this is a normal part of the gaming industry. He emphasizes that everyone is entitled to their opinion but also that some aspects of a game will always cause dissension among its intended public.
"Definitely doesn’t upset us," he tells Metro about criticism. "Very little surprises me after 16 years in this industry. Generally speaking, I think we’re an industry, we’re a form of entertainment. As with most forms of entertainment you never get 100 per cent agreement on anything. And so, at the end of the day, whether it’s what the graphics look like or whether the gameplay is what you want or whether you like the setting, or whatever it is, everybody is entitled to their opinion."
Fallout 4 is set to launch on November 10, worldwide, across PC, PS4, and Xbox One platforms. Bethesda has pledged to share more information, not to mention videos, screenshots, and other things about the role-playing game, so that fans can have a solid idea of what's going to be included in the post-apocalyptic role-playing game.
