'Fallout 4' news: title's director Todd Howard explains trading system, looting


Fallout 4’s director, Todd Howard, explained the new crafting and trading system, and also talked about making looting for players a better experience overall.

In a report by GameRant, the game director talked about the game’s new economic system. “The main gist of it is that we have all this junk around the world, so it sort of started like if you looked alchemy in Skyrim, but imagined that was on everything,” he said.

“The stuff at the beginning of the game that you would think is just crap and laying around, you would then realize, ‘Oh, I need the baby bottle, because it has X’. . . . You realize that, like, adhesive is [an] important element for building a lot of things, and you realize actually, duct tape and glue tend to be more valuable than grenades. It also causes this very interesting economy in the game where traditionally you would pick everything up and just sell it, and now you pick it up and you say, ‘Well, I can make this out of this, or I could make this out of this, or maybe I do wanna sell it.'”
