Fallout 4 has no level cap, lets you explore after the story finishes

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: Aug 7, 2015 5:47 am

In an interesting announcement, Bethesda has said that Fallout 4 will not have a level cap at all and that the game doesn't end when the story is over. Players can "keep playing and leveling" once the main story is wrapped up.

Previous Fallout games have all featured level caps, so this is a big departure from previous entries in the franchise. The studio has said that it is also reworking the way enemy difficulty scales with the player's level, which is an obvious move with the lack of a level cap. During E3, Fallout 4's Game Director, Todd Howard, told Game Informer: "We call it rubberbanding; we'll have an area [where enemies scale from] level 5 to 10, and then this area will be level 30 and above".

This is surely not going to change how eSports tournaments are conducted, but 10v10 could quite possibly be a massive hit at LAN parties and random online games.

The game is helped by its beautiful backgrounds, inspired by North Scandinavia. Unravel is a physics-based puzzle game platformer, where you have to travel across the environment solving puzzles that are in your way. It's a super-cute platformer that reminds me of Little Big Planet in a way. Let us know what you think in the comments below.

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Gaming | Posted: Aug 5, 2015 9:30 pm

During Gamescom, Microsoft will show off exclusive game titles including the following: Crackdown, Scalebound and Quantum Break - with all three titles providing third-person action play. Unfortunately, Microsoft wants to see different types of game genres:

 

"More diversity in terms of genre and mechanics, I think it's a great thing for this industry to push," Spencer recently told GameSpot. "So yes, you do find a lot of third-party action games from us, and I do think we should be pushing harder on genre and control."
