Bethesda has now officially confirmed that Fallout 76 multiplayer will allow us to create multiplayer characters. You can create multiple characters depending on what you like.
This was revealed through the official Fallout 76 page on Facebook (Italian version). It’s going to be similar to what we saw in The Elder Scrolls Online. It’s good to know as many believed that there’s going to be only one playable character.
Bethesda is giving away a lot of information as we are getting closer to the launch of Fallout 76 multiplayer. Bethesda has now also announced that Enclave is going to be a part of Fallout 76 factions. It’s one of the oldest factions in the game and consists of the latest tech with weapons.
It still remains to see how these factions will actually work out as there are no human NPCs in the game. Players will be able to join and create factions themselves. By the looks of it, each faction will give away weapons etc.
Another faction is called Responders faction which has a simple aim of helping each other. We will have to wait till next month to see how the factions work.
Fallout 76 beta is now available for pre-load on Xbox One. It requires 43.47 GB of space and is only available to those who have pre-ordered the game. You should start downloading today as the beta starts tomorrow.
PlayStation 4 and PC players will have to wait a week more to get their hands on the game.
Fallout 76 is not going to feature cross-play at launch. Pete Hines has confirmed that they don’t have any plans for it now. Though, Pete says that the team will look into cross-play after the game launches.
Stress test of the game also got concluded last week. It shows us a graphical downgrade when compared to Fallout 4. This could be due to the early version of the game. Fallout 76 ammo weighs less than that of in Fallout 4 but bobby pins are now heavier.
Pete Hines has also confirmed that the online Fallout game will feature mods but it’s not going to arrive until November of 2019.
Fallout 76 releases on November 14, 2018, for Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4.
