When Fallout 76 originally released, it did not do well. Patches were required on a weekly bases, multiple customers canceled their pre-orders and Bethesda was scrambling to make any money they could off the game, bringing the price down to $30 just weeks into the release. But at E3, they are trying to make amends for their latest release in the Fallout universe. Bethesda has added more quests that were severely lacking upon the game’s original release, and now are adding a battle royale mode, as well as the much antiquated NPC’s that made the older Fallout games so interactive.
Just like any other battle royale, there is a closing zone. This one is a nuclear firestorm that makes the map smaller over a selected time. Weapons and armor have been shifted for the PvP version of this game compared to the original survival mode. Like other battle royales, users will obtain gear and weapons from containers placed throughout the map. There will be airdrops and progress resets after every Nuclear Winter match.
Nuclear Winter can help you obtain XP and caps for the original adventure mode.
Players can build in the map during Nuclear Winter, using the CAMP software that is in survival mode. CAMP mode may be overpowered, so Bethesda has installed mini-nukes in the game to help cancel players that sit in one spot for too long.
The Nuclear Winter update is set to be available on June 17.
