In an interview with Xbox spokesman Larry Hryb (AKA Major Nelson), Bethesda’s Pete Hines explained that he rarely gets as excited playing Fallout 4 (opens in new tab) as he does when he finds duct tape. And no, it’s not because of that satisfying rrrrrrip! noise it makes – it’s because crafting is a major component of the game, and you can’t do much crafting without an adhesive.
That’s not the only knowledge bomb Hines drops; he also shares tips for building your character, a teensy glimpse into how mods will work on Xbox One – sounds like the plan is to have a menu option with a selection of mods for you to simply download and utilize, though Hines admits details need to be ironed out – and, of course, some insight into Bethesda’s development process.
According to Hines, there are no “sacred cows” when Bethesda starts development of a game. This has led to several of Fallout 4’s biggest changes, such as time no longer freezing in V.A.T.S. mode, the addition of blue skies, and a voiced protagonist. Check out the whole interview below.
