Fallout 76 Articles
Legendary Perks, a new account wide perk system, is currently in testing on Fallout 76's public test server and things are not looking good. While my adventures in Fallout 76 began recently, longtime fans have been looking forward to Legendary Perks for almost a year now and the response from the community has been less than enthusiastic to say the least.
Bethesda isn't the most communicative studio out there when it comes to Fallout 76, but the team did recently release its latest roadmap, giving players an overview of what's coming to the game this year. Honestly? There's a good deal to be excited about.
I was going to write about Elder Scrolls Online’s E3 announcements after BE3, but then the unexpected happened - Fallout 76 had the most interesting announcements from the online Bethesda games. Namely? Fallout 76 is adding actual NPCs, branching dialog, more quests, and a whole lot more in the next big update, Wastlanders. But, get this, they’re also adding a Battle Royale mode that will give you rewards to use in the main survival game too. I don’t even know what to think...
The launch of Fallout 76 has been... well let’s just say that I doubt it went the way Bethesda was hoping. But as a fan of two MMOs that have really turned things around through communication and perseverance (FFXIV and ESO), I’m hopeful that 2019 could bring good things to Fallout 76. It’s not a quick road back to the good graces of angry gamers, but the following is a list of things that I’d like to see from the dev team in the new year.
The mobile, movable base is a nice system in theory, I really enjoy the ability to set up camp almost anywhere I need to do some cooking, take a nap and do some repairs. However I feel that the system was not implemented very well as it seems to mix the concept of a Mobile Camp and what should be a home base of operations. These are two distinct systems that have entirely different focuses. With that in mind, I wanted to take a stab at how I see that the C.A.M.P. should be.
An evil editor demands yet another Fallout 76 article from Red Thomas. Stepping once more into the “breach,” Red decides to stick it to the man by writing about why he’s uninstalling the game. Will Red get fired? Will he usher in a new golden age of post-apocalyptic entertainment with his no-holds-barred WWF-quality smack down?
The ability to swap out cards quickly is a very flexible system. The addition of this Respec process, which seems very slow and arduous is just the opposite. While contemplating how we could make the Respec system flexible without making it meaningless, I came up with these two linked systems that would make it so much better.
One of the key game mechanics implemented for Fallout 76 is crafting, which relies on plans and recipes. They can seem to be hard to find, though. Today, Red Thomas outlines some of the easiest ways to jump-start your industrial repertoire and getting your post-apocalyptic carebear on.
When pitching Fallout 76, Bethesda Game Studios described Fallout 76 as “Fallout with your friends.” Within this article we are going to look at some of the pros and cons of this experience while examining how the multiplayer aspect functions.
The B.E.T.A. for Fallout 76 started last week. Red Thomas explores some of the ups and downs of the game, and then he explores whether it’s worth the buy for those who might want to play at next week’s release.
Bethesda has taken a lot of flack from fans over Fallout 76 ever since it was announced, but personally, I’ve been cautiously optimistic about the game. It’s true, I’d much prefer Fallout 76 to be a more narrative driven co-op PvE experience than the multiplayer survival sandbox we’re getting, but let’s be fair, the IP fits the genre like a glove. And best of all? It looks fun!
This week in our preparation for Fallout 76 we are going to take a look at the CAMP system. Fallout 4 introduced a great new system to the game in building up your resources and protecting a specific area on the map. The game even programmed attacks against your outpost and also connected with various factions or traders that would visit your area. With Fallout 76 going online, these ideas will become more popular than ever and in Fallout 76 you will take your CAMP with you.
Quakecon had a lot of information for fans. Fallout 76 was on the radar and part of their panel talked a lot about the PvP system. This is an immensely important part of the game because Fallout in all of its glory had never really gone multi-player, let alone host PvP. With the market dominated by competitive games right now, Fallout known for its solo adventures and strong narratives, will finally take the leap. Here are five take-ways from Todd Howard’s comments.
