View Full Version : So no towns / cities / social hubs?

And the reason for this, I've heard, is because of the setting. That these wouldn't "exist" in such a world.

Which is weird, because the TV show...which this coincides with...has Towns and whatnot...but the game can't have them...because the devs said "It would make no sense in the story"

So...we're to be nomads, it appears, with no central gathering place.

Q. Is there a hub city or safe zone?
A. There are NPC owned properties aka "Hot Spots" and areas where you can visit and interact with one another and NCP's. Each region has areas like this that players can interact with each other and socialize.

New Freedom crash site, Iron demon ranch, the Consulate, Top Notch tool works, the Crater (a bar), and some place in San Fran.

Mhm, but that's not really what I was talking about.

From what I saw, it's the same as people gathered outside a dungeon waiting to party up. No real "Town" aspect.

Never been there, but then again the chat system is worthless in this game.... what a shame.

People will start to gather at certain spots and those will be know to use them for the "CITY". The community will dictate what will be the gathering place.

Hubs are overrated in my opinion. Though, if there's no global chat or anything, then meeting people would be a bit awkward. I like just driving around from place to place though, and not having a central meeting point where hundreds of people are afk or standing in an auction house for hours like robots. Cutting out all the nonsense for the meat of the game. Just get in your car and driiive.

Make your own social hub. You and your friends can designate a certain spot, maybe overlooking the coatline or that empty building as your meet up spot. Would be more "story like".
