One of the things we mentioned in a previous hardcore post was the Legendary enemies, and many of you probably assumed that we shamelessly stole were inspired by that idea from Fallout 4. Well, you were right, sort of, as always we did add our own twist onto the idea.

Legendary enemies are special variants of normal enemies that can spawn in specific locations or within enemy groups. Whether or not a legendary enemy spawns in each encounter is determined by chance based on the difficulty of the game and the amount of hardcore modules enabled. Certain scripted encounters/locations might have legendary spawns that are guaranteed.

One of the big things that is no secret is that the Wave 4 demo hasn’t been doing so well regarding the overall performance. A big reason with that was that there was simply too much going on with physics calculations and the already relatively large map itself. So what were our options to try and improve the performance? There were a few ideas, of which some are still not fully implemented, but one of the biggest ones was a dedicated system that should handle the loading of our game scene(s).

When we first read about Fallout 4 not including a repair system, many on the Design Team were a little annoyed. Repairing played an important role at providing a variety in weapon and armor stats, a reason to not always use the "best" weapon, and an use for all those random weapons you found.
