Fallout 76 Not Indicative of the Future of Bethesda Game Studios

Fallout 76 Will Stop Players Under Level 5 Being Killed in PvP

Fallout 76 Will Stop Players Under Level 5 Being Killed in PvP

Right now, Howard admits that Bethesda has done "nothing" because it's "on other things" such as Fallout Shelter for the Switch. "People, they're on other things". He acknowledged that the support hasn't really been up to snuff: "Skyrim Switch has a big community that we haven't supported the way we'd like". "We would love to see it happen but it's not something we're actively doing", said Todd.

The Creation Club feature, which was first introduced into Fallout 4 before making its way to Skyrim, essentially allows players to access mods for the game on consoles, as well as on PC. Bethesda's studio head Todd Howard has now made it abundantly clear that isn't the case, during an interview with GamesIndustry.biz at Gamelab in Barcelona. When he was further asked about the intention behind the same statement by a Eurogamer reported, he said: "They asked for mods, they asked for Creation Club - 'When are we getting more stuff?'"

"It doesn't mark the future", said Howard (via Twinfinite), adding that the company has already launched a bunch of games belonging to completely different genres and aiming for totally opposite audiences.


Switch fans will definitely be disappointed by these statements, but it looks like they may integrate it in the near future. But while it sounds great, its needing to be policed for consoles means Creation Club offers a more limited selection than on PC, where the gates are wide open. Even the single-player focused Bethesda is trying out the format with the multiplayer-focused Fallout 76.

The idea of slaying dragons in Skyrim on the bus - or on the loo - used to be nothing more than a pipe dream - but last November, Bethesda Game Studios pulled it off and released the fifth Elder Scrolls game on Nintendo Switch.
