    So does the singleplayer have one of these "the plague" command table games like Inquisition or WoW has? Or is it really just multiplayer?

    I don't know what that is but I'm going to say no. Outside of actual multiplayer it's just some gimmick to encourage you to come back to the game to click on things and get free item unlocks.

    Based on what I learned playing the demo for two hours yesterday, I'd say this is Multiplayer only.

    Gotta push people towards those micro transactions, because the main game has issues...

    I remember the companion app for Fallout 4. I used it for all of 3 seconds.

    Will the companion app fix the poor model and animation quality?
