Bethesda Game Studios’ Todd Howard and comedian Pete Holmes discussed the development process leading up to Fallout 4’s launch and how the team has reviewed post-release user feedback during a take at the 2016 DICE summit in Las Vegas.
Polygon reports that Holmes asked Howard at one point if Fallout 4 contains any secrets which have not yet been discovered by players.
After a brief pause, Howard admitted there a few things in the game he’s surprised players aren’t talking about yet. The developer wouldn’t provide specifics as he hopes players discover the secrets on their own, but he did confirm that one of them can be found on a terminal.
Howard added that his team is busier than ever as it works to develop Fallout 4’s upcoming DLC. The overhauled Survival Mode will dramatically change the game, he continued and mused that his character may be suffering from insomnia. Some of the content will be beta tested with the public in order to gauge player feedback.
Finally, Howard hinted that Bethesda Game Studios has three larger projects in the works. At a guess, one of those games is The Elder Scrolls 6 while another may be Bethesda Montreal’s first project.
“We actually have three longer-term projects that are all — we’ll talk about them at a much future date — they’re different from anything we’ve done before while also being a Bethesda style game: big and crazy,” Howard commented, “but in many ways different from what we’ve done before.”
Yesterday, Bethesda announced the first three DLC packs for Fallout 4 and a Season Pass price increase from March 1st.
