Fallout 76 is legendary in gaming communities – but definitely not for the reasons that the Bethesda developer and publisher would like. The Bug video for Fallout 76 is actually a separate genre on YouTube, and sales did almost everything with every new step to upset the already sceptical fans: Merchandise helmets with a risk of mould, collection editions that did not have advertised quality corresponded and rude ideas like Fallout 1st premium membership, which also led to numerous updates But after a long wait, Bethesda “Fallout 76” donated the biggest and most important update in its history: the Wastelanders update.
The first Bethesda boasted: “Fallout 76” appeared completely without an NPC. Bethesda wanted to sell this to players as an advantage because it should allow players to write their own story without clutter in the online title. The result was a large but empty game world, which was supposed to convey its stories through storytelling from the environment, which in the long run seemed rather boring.
In addition, many gamers complained about the community at the launch of Fallout 76. PvP was not thought out to the end and practically did not interest anyone, which probably surprised Bethesda very much. There were also many single players who were also not enthusiastic about collaborating and tried to play Fallout 76 as a classic game in the series.
By the way, this is a phenomenon that I also discovered while playing The Elder Scrolls Online. Most of the players behave as in a single-player RPG, carry out their quests independently and pay little attention to other players. But it is also the fan base that Bethesda has grown over the years thanks to its open-world titles.
But back to the free wastelanders update, which changes Fallout 76 a lot: because it represents the NPC and, of course, a lot of new storylines. Will RPG memes come to an end and will players accept Bethesda again? A difficult question that I probably cannot answer in this example.
Many of you may feel the same way, and after the Wastelanders update, you are now considering whether Fallout 76 is worth a look. The short answer is: at the current price of the game, which varies from 10 to 25 euros, depending on the seller and the platform, you can say yes.
However, when the game appeared on the market at full price at the end of 2018, this recommendation could not be given. However, Fallout 76 will not work correctly in 2020 and after the Wastelanders update. The almost classic Bethesda beetles can still be found in the wasteland from time to time – and I don’t mean irradiated beetles.
The NPC quivers epileptically through Wallachia, or the adversary prefers to dreamily look at the horizon while I am in a hurry, rather than defending myself. Teleport is also a skill that is no stranger to people (and animals) in the world of Fallout 76 and is used sporadically. However, most of these mistakes were quite funny for me and did not slow down my progress. I did not have to deal with disappearing objects, insoluble quests or crashes. I also tested Fallout 76 on the Xbox One X, so I can’t say anything about other platforms.
The Wastelanders update represents not only NPCs scattered throughout the game world but also companions and two factions – settlers and raiders. You can complete quests for both of them, you just need to choose one on both sides towards the end. Until then, you can and should run on two tracks to take the whole story with you. The new NPCs that can accompany you also carry quest lines and their own stories.
By the way, this becomes stupid for players who, unlike me, want to play Fallout 76 and the Wastelanders update history not alone, but (as Bethesda originally intended) in multiplayer. In fact, of course. But progress is not shared, and the one who invited others always has the right to vote. The only advantage is that you can experience the main quest with friends several times from different points of view and be able to see the consequences of different decisions.
Watching or to be precise, I mainly listen to “Fallout 76” in English because I like playing games in English most of the time due to the higher quality setting of 99.9%.
After the possibility of a wasteland and interaction with NPCs, “Fallout 76” now provides a more vivid game world, as it turned out to be the case at the beginning of the game a year and a half ago. There are even occasional encounters, which is the tradition of the series. There, for example, you will find travel agents and other people who come up with wonderful or annoying surprises. At some point, “Fallout 76” almost felt like “Fallout 5”.
However, it is also important: “In a moment”, or in the best case, you will forget that this is an online game and wonder why Bethesda did not invest resources directly into the fifth part. Instead, you try to expand your brand unnecessarily and eventually confuse it with many fans. does it worth? In fact, the Wastelanders update saved a lot of time-but a year and a half after the release was late.
New companions will bring their own missions, and they can enter the camp after setting certain items that attract them, so to speak, but they are not allowed to fight. It is also regrettable that only a new companion can visit the camp-former astronaut Sofia, wilderness punk, hiker, collector or former bandit Beckett. If you want to replace one of the residents with another, you must first remove the appropriate items, and then change the other-awkward.
“Fallout 76” is interesting after the current status of “The Wastelanders ” is updated, but in any case, it should still not exist in its original form, especially not for full price. Even now, you should take a closer look at monetization options through Atomic Store and Fallout 1st.
Like me, anyone likes the previous “Fallout” game and got the game at a reasonable price of fewer than 20 Euros, but in my opinion, it is now possible to spend a few hours of entertainment in this game.
