Fallout 76 Wastelanders Testing Delayed on PTS | Screen Rant

The Fallout 76 Wastelanders private beta test was originally scheduled for this week, but Bethesda has announced it will delay that test for an unforeseen amount of time. Many players were excited to try the upcoming update.

Wastelanders promises to fix one major issue that many have condemned since Fallout 76 originally released in November 2018. Though the game is filled with numerous NPCs that want to kill players, robots with whom vault dwellers can interact, a friendly super mutant and his bovine companion, and holotapes that offer at times entrancing storylines, vault dwellers have long complained that Fallout 76 lacks human NPCs. Wastelanders marks a time when people feel safe to return to Appalachia. The Scorched plague is no longer an issue. The corner of the wasteland that used to be West Virginia is a much safer place. Fallout 76 Wastelanders was originally planned for a late 2019 release but was delayed until 2020.

Players eager to explore the Watoga Underground and all that Wastelanders has to offer will have to wait a little longer according to a post on the official Bethesda forums. Community admin jurassica explained that while Bethesda had planned to begin testing on Friday, they need more time before they begin inviting players to test the Fallout 76 Wastelanders update. “Once we’re ready, we’ll begin letting people into the Private Test Server so you can start your next journey in Appalachia,” the post says, adding that Bethesda is targeting this week for a start date.

Wastelanders will bring major changes to the game, including a more full world filled with the aforementioned human NPCs, a return of choice and consequences in dialogue options, and new areas to explore, so this is surely a disappointment to those who were eagerly awaiting the beta. Bethesda says it will give preference to players who opted-in to the beta test. The testing will be limited to “a few hundred players,” with preference given to “experienced” wastelanders who play regularly. More players may be invited as testing needs dictate.

Fallout 76 Wastelanders shows a lot of promise, but only time will tell if this update will be enough to finally get the game in the good graces of the masses. Bethesda has endured numerous black eyes thanks to this latest Fallout game – and has only made matters worse by closing Vault 94 raids “indefinitely,” introducing a monthly pay-to-win plan in the form of Fallout 1st, and seemingly prioritizing updates to the battle royale mode over the main game. The Wastelanders delays have not helped, either. Wastelanders could be the update that makes or breaks Fallout 76. Perhaps this delay and the testing will help them produce a Fallout 76 update with fewer exploits, bugs and issues than is typical for their games.

Players Supporting Fallout 76 Formed An ‘Apocalyptic Aristocracy’

Paid subscribers to Fallout 76’s new membership service, Fallout 1st, have formed an in-game “apocalyptic aristocracy” of sorts. Fallout 1st was announced and released on the 23rd of October as a premium service costing $12.99 a month or $99.99 a year. The service gives players access to a number of in-game perks, including unique emotes, in-game resources, a regular income of premium currency, and the ability to play on a private server.

Fallout 76 launched to overwhelming negative feedback, with players citing countless bugs, many of them game-breaking, in addition to generally boring content even when the game functioned. The game was also the subject of a fair amount of controversy both before and after release, including one notorious case of false advertising where players who preordered the premium Power Armor edition of the game received a cheap nylon bag instead of the high quality canvas bag they were promised. While Bethesda has been struggling to address player feedback and improve the gameplay experience, locking the improvements offered by Fallout 1st behind a paywall has not gone over well with most players.

That being said, there are certain players who have embraced the new subscription software for its added utility, despite reports that the biggest features in Fallout 1st do not actually work. Days after the release of the service, it was reported that non-subscribers were targeting and attacking players who had subscribed to Fallout 1st. This has led to the formation of an in-game clan of players called the Apocalyptic Aristocracy, composed of paid subscribers who are seemingly attempting to separate themselves from the “rabble” of non-paying players.

The Apocalyptic Aristocracy was formed by players looking for a safe haven from the strong anti-Fallout 76 bias that is flooding the internet. While most paid subscribers genuinely enjoy the game and appreciate the features Fallout 1st has added, there are many others on the internet who are surprised and somewhat disgusted that there’s anyone left on the internet who’s willing to support Fallout 76. While the Aristocracy was founded partly as a joke, with the name serving as nothing more than a tongue-in-cheek reference to a conflict that many members believe is spiraling out of control.

It’s clear that Fallout 76 is a flawed video game, with a long history of errors both technical and economical. While Fallout 1st is no less divisive than the rest of the game, it is clear that there are still people who enjoy the game for what it is and are happy to pay extra to improve their own experiences with it. Whether or not Bethesda can expand its player base to include more than faux aristocrats remains to be seen, but it is important to bear in mind that not everyone in the world considers Fallout 76 a total mistake.

Fallout 76 Players Are Protesting Fallout 1st In-Game

Fallout 76 players have now gotten so angry at Bethesda they are protesting against the company inside its own game. This news is the latest to come from Bethesda’s recent unveiling of their premium subscription service Fallout 1st, which costs players either $12.99 a month or $99.99 dollars a year and, at the time of this writing, still does not deliver completely working versions of either of the service’s top two selling points.

One of the things Fallout 76 players have been asking for since the game’s original release last year was the ability to control who was in their game’s server, and the Fallout 1st program was intended to finally deliver what players had been asking for. Even though Bethesda had previously stated multiple times there would never be paid content updates to the game, some players were still excited to finally be able to have private servers. However, those players which did buy into the Fallout 1st program soon found out those servers weren’t so private after all, as anyone on the player’s friends list could join in at any time with no control given to stop it.

This, combined with the service’s other main selling point, a bottomless scrap container players have also been begging for which has seemingly lost multiple user’s items with no way yet to regain them, is one of the main reasons why players are now going as far as to boycott Fallout 76, with others protesting Bethesda inside their own game. As reported by Eurogamer and demonstrated in this player’s tweet below, it appears some of Bethesda’s loyal fans have finally had enough while others don’t seem to see the problem.

Response to Bethesda’s premium subscription service can best be described as “mixed, but mostly negative” with the majority of players feeling both hurt and cheated by the company. Although Bethesda has responded to their fans requests to deliver a working version of the service they have paid for, there is no word yet on exactly when an update to give players control over their private worlds or a bug fix for the Scrap Box will be implemented.

There are still some die-hard fans of Fallout 76but unless Bethesda’s behavior changes in the near future even those players may begin to look elsewhere for post-apocalyptic base-building mayhem. With the developer recently acquiring Alpha Dog Games, a mobile developer, perhaps those players will have a Android and iOS version of Fallout similar to The Elder Scrolls: Blades in the near future. For everyone else, especially fans of the developers of another Fallout 1st benefit, Fallout: New Vegas’ desert ranger armor, there is always The Outer Worlds.

Fallout 76’s Human NPCs Won’t Be Added Until Next Year

Fallout 76 human NPCs won’t be coming as early as fans might have hoped, as Bethesda announced earlier today that the Wastelanders free update – the one that many believe could salvage the game as a whole – has now been delayed until Q1 2020. Wastelanders was first announced during E3 2019, when Bethesda Game Studios creative director Todd Howard alluded to the dissatisfaction of the game’s many players before suggesting that the company had heard their concerns and would be taking steady, genuine steps toward creating the game that fans wanted rather than the one they had received.

Fallout 76 was nothing short of a disappointment when the game first released, failing to capture the magic of the series and instead offering up a multiplayer experience that took place in a world that felt devoid of life. For a game that’s in a franchise that made its name for intriguing characters and NPC interactions, having almost none of those – and no human NPCs to speak of – was a bold decision, and one that didn’t pay off. Howard acknowledged during his E3 2019 appearance that launching an RPG without any human characters to interact with was probably a mistake in retrospect, and the reception of Fallout 76 has proven that to be true. With that said, though, Wastelanders is the game’s biggest update ever, one that will look to right many of the wrongs that were present at launch.

Unfortunately, Wastelanders won’t be coming this year after all. Bethesda Game Studios announced this morning that Wastelanders will now arrive in the first quarter of 2020, which is a period spanning January 1, 2020 to March 31, 2020. The company stated that the update needed more time to ensure quality, but the Fallout 76 human NPC addition is the ray of light shining through for those who have stubbornly stuck with the game, and delaying it is rough. Here’s what Bethesda had to say on the delay:

It’s going to need more time to be the best, most polished update it can be. We’ve continued to re-evaluate and change our processes to make sure the work we’re doing hits our quality bar, and yours. We apologize for this delay but know it will be worth the extra time.

Wastelanders is turning out to be one of the largest expansions we’ve ever done, and it changes the entire world with human NPCs returning. We’ll be sharing more details over time.”

The post also includes a look at some of the human NPCs that will be appearing in the Wastelanders expansion, and it’s certainly promising to hear of the update as one of the largest Bethesda has ever done. Whether that’s enough to convince players to continue waiting for the update remains to be seen – the patience of many Fallout 76 players has already been tested since the game first launched, and there are a lot of huge releases coming at the end of 2019 and the first quarter of 2020. The company also revealed that private servers will be made available next week, something that could help bridge the gap between now and the Wastelanders update.

Even with potential backlash, though, the addition of Fallout 76 human NPCs is one of the biggest updates to the game yet and one that will need to be done right to salvage it. It makes sense for Bethesda to pump the brakes on the update if quality is a concern, and even if that means the update needs to compete with releases like The Last of Us 2 and Final Fantasy 7 Remake, at least it will be doing so looking as good as it could have without being rushed.

How To Find Vault 13 On Fallout 2’s Map

Here’s how players can find the elusive Vault 13 on the vast Fallout 2 map. Fallout is a franchise that casts players as the survivor of a nuclear war, who emerges from an underground vault decades later and must learn to survive the bleak new world. The series is typically made up of role-playing action, where players have to explore a vast open world and battle raiders, mutated creatures and the unforgiving landscape itself.

The original Fallout was released in 1997 and the series has branched out in unique – and bizarre – ways ever since. There have been action heavy spinoffs like Fallout: Brotherhood Of Steel and the multiplayer shenanigans of 2018’s Fallout 76. Bethesda Softworks (Skyrim) took over the franchise starting with 2008’s Fallout 3. This title proved to be somewhat controversial, as while it introduced a bigger audience to the franchise, the changes it brought to the series irritated fans of the original games.

Fallout 2 was released in 1998, the year after the original. The game was considered a big improvement on the first Fallout, telling a more ambitious story, in addition to gameplay improvements and a larger map. While a rushed development period led to some bugs, the sequel also introduced the franchise’s warped sense of humor. The sequel takes place 80 years after the first game, where The Chosen One – the descendant of Fallout’s original hero – is tasked with finding Vault 13 to retrieve a device called the GECK that could save their dying village.

Of course, the first thing players need to do is actually find Vault 13, which isn’t displayed on the Fallout 2 map. There are a few ways to unlock its location. The first method involves giving a drink to a character called Saltbeef Bob at Roger Westin’s ranch. Bob will reveal Doc Jubilee stole his map to Vault 13, so The Chosen One can later talk to the doctor and if he buys his Elvis painting, the map will be found hidden inside.

The second is to work for Sheriff Dumont and accept the quest to stop the brahmin raids. If players have 100% on their Outdoorsman skill, they’ll be able to hunt down the Deathclaws behind the raids straight to Vault 13. The final option is to go to Vault 15, where a computer room on level 3 can be hacked – so long as players have a high enough science skill. Finding the location of Vault 13 is one thing, but what players find inside opens up a new world of craziness.

Sadly, players can’t just stumble onto Vault 13’s entrance by exploration, and it has to be added to the Fallout 2 map first. Part of the fun of a Fallout game is exploring the vast world and having adventures, so there’s no need to rush to get to Vault 13 anyway.

What Is The Best Faction In Fallout 4?

Surviving the post-apocalyptic wasteland can be hard work alone, so which of the various Fallout 4 factions should the player connect with? The Fallout series often casts players as a survivor emerging from a fallout shelter centuries after a nuclear war devastated the planet, and having to survive a landscape littered with raiders, bloodthirsty mutants, and other threats.

Bethesda Softworks (The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim) took over the franchise with 2008’s Fallout 3, and while fans of the original games are divided over the changes it brought, the third game is now regarded as one of the best of the series. It took until 2015 for Fallout 4 to arrive and while it received mixed reviews for simplifying some of the story and dialogue mechanics, in addition to assorted technical issues and bugs, it gave fans another immersive, fascinating sandbox to lose themselves in.

Related: Why Fallout 4 Survival Mode Is The True Way To Play The Game

Just like with previous titles, there are numerous factions players can join in Fallout 4. Some offer better resources and perks – but their goals and morals may not totally align with that of the player either. Which faction players align with also affects the ending they’ll receive, so let’s look at the different Fallout 4 factions and see which is the best.

The Brotherhood Of Steel

The Brotherhood Of Steel is a staple of the series and even received their own spinoff with 2004’s Fallout: Brotherhood Of Steel. The Brotherhood are tasked with protecting Commonwealth citizens against attack. They can provide the Sole Survivor with firepower and cool armor, but they’re also devoted to wiping out all mutants, ghouls, and synths to protect mankind, which is a tad dubious morally.

The Railroad

The Railroad, fronted by their leader Desdemona, is dedicated to preserving and protecting the rights of synths. Their goals are in contrast to that of the Brotherhood and other Fallout 4 factions, though they’re also pretty single focused on one issue and the group itself is quite small. Still, their goal to protect sentient androids is a noble one, and there are certainly worst factions out in the wasteland.

The Institute

Probably the most morally questionable of the Fallout 4 factions, The Institute wish to use technology to restore the world. This also means enslaving synths to do their bidding and they believe the survival of mankind requires darker methods. Their goals might be seen as noble but their clinical methods make them hard to root for – or join with.

The Minutemen

Like the Brotherhood Of Steel, the Minuteman want to protect the Commonwealth, but they want peace for human, synth and mutant alike. They’re basically the neutral option and seek to help rebuild the world instead of imposing their beliefs or philosophy on other groups. Other groups may have cooler toys to play with, but the Minutemen are arguably the best of the Fallout 4 factions to align with.

Ranking The Fallout Games, From Worst To Best

Fallout is the classic action/RPG franchise that lets players have fun salvaging for supplies in a bleak, hopeless nuclear landscape, but which is the best Fallout game? The original Fallout was the spiritual successor to a game called Wasteland and casts players as a survivor who must venture forth from the safety of their fallout shelter to explore the dangerous world outside.

That same basic setup could be applied to almost any entry in the Fallout series, but along the way, the franchise would develop its own distinct identity. From Nuka Cola to the Pip-Boy and Ron Perlman’s somber narration, the Fallout series promises players a vast, open-world landscape to get lost in – and barely survive encounters with roving mutants and Deathclaws.

Related: Why Fallout 4 Survival Mode Is The True Way To Play The Game

Let’s revisit the main entries in the series – apologies to Fallout: Pinball and Brotherhood Of Steel – and see which is the best Fallout game.

6. Fallout 76 (2018)

While Fallout 76 was met with a very mixed response due to buggy design, the departure in gameplay and other controversies surrounding its launch. It’s not an awful game overall, but it is extremely flawed. Fallout 76 is an online, multiplayer shooter, and allows players to band together to explore the wasteland. Aside from this core change, the gameplay is still very recognizable, mixing action and exploration but it feels somewhat lifeless compared to other entries. The lack of in-game NPCs also makes the world feel smaller and less interesting.

5. Fallout (1997)

The game that kicked it all off, Fallout is a solid top-down, turn-based RPG title. Players only familiar with the more recent entries might be shocked by how different the series used to look and play, but Fallout still originated all the key tropes of the franchise, from the retro-futuristic design to the story branching dialogue. The original is somewhat dated in design now, however.

4. Fallout 2 (1998)

Fallout 2 came out a year after the first and build on its foundation to make a stronger game. The sequel established the unique sense of humor of the series and is crammed with bizarre easter eggs and gags. It’s also more colorful and generally more entertaining. That said, a rushed production led to some annoying bugs, though the vastness of the game world makes up for this.

3. Fallout 4 (2015)

Fans had to wait a long time for the arrival of Fallout 4 which is one of the most ambitious entries in the whole franchise. The game is the best looking in the series to date, featured much-improved combat mechanics and power armor added a new tactical element. The story mechanics took a hit, however, with the dialogue options being simplified and the narrative overall isn’t as interesting as other entries.

2. Fallout 3 (2008)

Bethesda Softworks took over the franchise with Fallout 3 which introduced a first-person perspective and a bigger focus on combat. This brought players into the scorched, post-nuclear landscape like never before, though some fans have lamented the changes the game made to the saga. Fallout 3 can be frequently buggy, but the scope of the open-world, variety of missions, side quests and the colorful characters that can be encountered make it an enthralling, classic RPG title.

1. Fallout: New Vegas (2010)

Fallout: New Vegas features the best narrative and characters of the entire franchise, and combined the improvements introduced in the third game while playing homage to the original titles. The game takes place in the Mojave desert, where players control the revenge-seeking Courier. The gameplay is just as in-depth as previous Fallout titles, but New Vegas does a fantastic job with the atmosphere of the world too, with players encounter more complex characters and factions. This one of the many reasons fans feel New Vegas is the best Fallout game.

Why Fallout 4 Survival Mode Is The True Way To Play The Game

Surviving a post-apocalyptic landscape is hard enough but Fallout 4 survival mode challenges even the most skilled players and is the best way to experience the game. Fallout is a series of RPG/action games that take place centuries after a nuclear attack has devastated the world. Players are cast into this hellish, retro-futuristic landscape and must overcome hostile survivors, mutated creatures and ghouls while deciding whether to help others or only look out for themselves.

Bethesda Softworks (The Elder Scrolls) took over the series from 2008’s Fallout 3, a huge, open-world title that allowed players to go wherever they wished. Fallout 4 later managed to exceed it in both scope and scale, and while the game was sometimes let down by glitches and assorted bugs, it proved to be another epic timesink for fans of the series.

Related: Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Climbing Gear Location Guide

For franchise experts, the standard game modes won’t prove to be much of a challenge and they’ll soon be swimming in ammo and stimpaks. That’s where Fallout 4 survival mode comes in. This difficulty level strips away comforts like fast travel and quick saves and forces players to engage with the post-apocalypse in a whole new way. It also brings the intensity of the game to a new level.

In Fallout 4 survival mode, hunger, thirst and even a proper sleep cycle become hugely important and players need to plan ahead, and the game can only be saved when players go to sleep. Diseases also come into the picture, so eating contaminated food or water will cause the Sole Survivor to become sick and require antibiotics, and stimpaks heal over time instead of right away. Fallout 4 survival mode alters combat in a big way also. Enemies can deliver far more damage, though the Sole Survivor can also dish out significant damage too. Weight restrictions limit the number of weapons and ammunition players can carry, so they’ll have to measure the benefits of engaging enemies or hope they have enough supplies in case of a surprise attack.

Basically, Fallout 4 survival mode gives players a taste of what life in a post-nuclear hellscape would be like. The Sole Survivor faces constant hunger and thirst and every enemy attack is a challenge. This difficulty level makes players earn each victory, challenging them to use their wits as well as their firepower. This also feels like the way Fallout 4 was meant to be played and there’s a certain exhilaration with just barely scraping by.

Fallout 4 survival mode won’t be for everyone, especially those who aren’t prepared to invest a significant amount of hours into beating it. For those players who do, however, it’s the most rewarding way to play the game.

Fallout 76 Being Given Out With Used PS4 Controllers at GameStop Germany

If further evidence is needed to prove the commercial and critical failure of Fallout 76 – and it really isn’t – then look no further than GameStop Germany’s decision to give out copies of the game to purchasers of used PS4 controllers. Yes, ouch. Though GameStop is internationally notorious for its reliance on used product sales and trade-ins, this is not a common deal even by its standards, and it’s a telling sign that the German store is doing its best to empty its unprofitable stock of Fallout 76 copies as quickly as it can.

Fallout 76 has been a golden goose for those seeking video game controversy since its disappointing launch in November 2018. Fallout developer Bethesda shot itself in the foot along every step of the way, having duped its highest-paying customers with collectible bags made of cheap nylon instead of promised canvas, asking players to pay absurd prices for low-quality items and skins in the full-price game’s Atom Shop, and doing generally everything possible to earn its place in gaming history as 2018’s biggest disappointment. Bethesda seems to be doing little to stop that dishonor from bleeding into 2019, with its most recent update infuriating Fallout 76‘s remaining players by reintroducing bugs from an older build of the game.

Related: Fallout 76’s Absurd Free-To-Play Rumor Shutdown by Bethesda

Taking these misadventures into account, it’s hard to blame GameStop Germany for going to extreme lengths to offload copies of Fallout 76 onto customers buying secondhand accessories. A Reddit post by user cenorexia brought the deal to light, itself a screenshot from the Snapchat of a bemused German GameStop patron. To paraphrase, the promo advertises that Fallout 76 comes free with every used PS4 controller purchase while supplies last. For PS4 players in need of an extra DualShock 4 and still interested in picking up Fallout 76, this is actually a great deal considering GameStop US lists new copies of the game and used PS4 controllers at $40 each.

While it’s worth noting that there’s quite a lot of fine print that could add extra stipulations to the deal, which are illegible due to the low quality of the image of the promo, it’s not so far-fetched considering the easy-to-believe rumors of the game’s poor sales and the vulnerable position in which GameStop has recently found itself. Amid worsening economic hardship, the games retailer publicly tried and failed to find an interested party willing to purchase the company. GameStop has long held a reputation for its over-dependence on the used games market it helped to create and has been fighting an increasingly uphill battle to compete with online competition, so a desperate bid to rid itself of poorly selling German copies of a flop like Fallout 76 isn’t entirely surprising.

Since its release, Fallout 76 has almost entirely failed to produce a single piece of positive press, and it’s seeming unlikely that Bethesda will reverse its luck regarding the game in 2019. Though the live-service dumpster fire will in all likelihood continue to burn as long as it’s supported, Bethesda fans can hope that the upcoming Rage 2 will salvage the developer’s hard-hit reputation come May 2019. Until then, they can confidently expect further letdowns as Fallout 76 continues to do what it has consistently proven it does best.

Obsidian Reveals The Outer Worlds: The Fallout Game We Wanted?

Obsidian Entertainment revealed their new title at The Game Awards, The Outer Worlds. And judging from the trailer, The Outer Worlds looks a lot like a Fallout game.

Obsidian has a strong reputation as a developer that does a lot of projects that are sequels to other popular game franchises. Not only is it the studio behind Neverwinter Nights 2 and Star Wars: Knights of the Republic II: The Sith Lords, both sequels to BioWare games, but it is also the developer of Fallout: New Vegas, a sequel to Bethesda’s Fallout 3. However, the company recently started devoting itself to its own properties, including its crowdfunded Pillars of Eternity and Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire. Its recent success got the attention of Microsoft, who bought Obsidian back in November.

Related: Fallout: New Vegas 2 Likely Won’t Ever Happen, Says Obsidian

Obsidian’s newest title, The Outer Worlds, was unveiled at The Game Awards. The trailer shows a game with a steampunk kind of feel that also has a very retro wasteland vibe that is very reminiscent of Fallout. The trailer announces that the player has arrived at the edge of the galaxy, “the frontier of space,” a place that has become overrun with corporations, which explains all the retro advertisements seen throughout the video.

Obsidian partnered with Take-Two with this new title before the company became part of Microsoft, which means The Outer Worlds will not be an Xbox One and PC exclusive: it will also be on the PS4. The trailer also announces that the game will release sometime in 2019. Perhaps what’s most evident in the trailer, though, is how very much like Fallout the game appears to be. Not only does the game have that same vintage vibe, but even some of the outfits resemble those seen in Fallout games. Even the camera shots feel familiar. The trailer also mentions that The Outer Worlds comes from the original creators of Fallout, as well as the developers of Fallout: New Vegas, so these similarities are apparent for a reason.

With the complete train wreck that has become the release of Bethesda’s Fallout 76, The Outer Worlds seems like the Fallout game that fans have wanted all along. It’s an obvious throwback to titles like Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, and because it’s an original IP, shouldn’t come with the baggage that the franchise now has, thanks to the issues with Fallout 76. When The Outer Worlds releases next year, it’s likely to appeal to players who feel like they got burned by Bethesda.
