The Brotherhood Of Steel are stomping into Fallout 76 in December

After that big Wastelanders update that added human NPCs and a legit storyline to Fallout 76 earlier this year, the story quests are rolling right along with the upcoming Steel Dawn update. Militant tech fanatics Brotherhood Of Steel are entering Appalachia while apparently doing what they do best: stomping around in power armor and scowling. A new teaser trailer lets on just a little bit…

Fallout 76 is free to play this week

It feels weird to write something like, 'Celebrate the Fallout bombs dropping this week!' Because it's a bit dark and gloomy, and 'celebrate' certainly feels like the wrong word. But hey, that's exactly what Bethesda are doing. October 23rd is the day in Fallout lore where the world went bang and those lucky (or unlucky) enough to have a place in a vault disappeared underground.…

Fallout 76’s new One Wasteland update adds level scaling

Here’s some QuakeCon At Home highlights to tune in to

QuakeCon At Home is live this weekend on Twitch, though it really should be called BethFest when you look at the schedule. The event has moved wholly online thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, and the rescheduled celebration of id’s and Bethesda’s games has an intriguing schedule. Here are a few of the highlights.

QuakeCon 2020 is going fully digital for its 25th annual event

QuakeCon is an entire quarter-century old this year, and no pandemic will stop Id Software and Bethesda from celebrating it. While the in-person event was cancelled back in March due to Covid-19, QuakeCon will now be joining the raft of gaming events being taken online. Aptly named QuakeCon At Home, it's set to feature esports tournaments, charity initiatives, and loads of "round-the-clock" live streams. It…

A Fallout TV show is on the way from the makers of Westworld

War never changes, but prestige TV sure can. Today, Bethesda announced that Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, creators of HBO's Westworld, are taking their cinematic lens to Fallout, working with Amazon Studios to create a post-apocalyptic telly show based on the long-running nuke 'em up RPG. Hold on, though - a darkly comic show about robot cowboys, deserts and conspiracies? Sounds quite a leap for…

Fallout 76’s jolly Fasnacht robot parade is back on

The Fallout 76 clown car continued its strange journey this week, as the recently semi-redeemed MMO stumbled over another technical hitch.The popular in-game event Fasnacht Day was expected to start on Monday, but was quickly stalled by a bug. Players reacted with great frustration as the event was taken down, depriving everyone of an hourly semi-charming, semi-creepy masked robot march. Bethesda report that all is…

You can try Fallout 76 and its new Wastelanders update free this weekend

Originally ill-fated and now much-upgraded sort of MMO Fallout 76 is having its moment in the sun at last. It's still not the best Fallout game on the block, but it's not someplace you'd be utterly embarrassed to invite your mates. To that end, Bethesda are running a free-to-play weekend starting this Thursday. Now that the online Fallout game has made its way to Steam,…

Fallout 76 has stopped wastelanders from nicking your guns

Not long after the Wastelanders update dropped, Fallout 76 players started noticing that some of their weapons were disappearing after they died. But it wasn't that they were vanishing into thin air - it turns out some opportunistic new human NPCs were looting players' corpses, and nicking the best guns from their bodies. Then would just wander round using the stolen goods right in front…

Looks like pets are on the way to Fallout 76

The dog companions in Fallout games are iconic. Dogmeat? A hero. Rex? The best boy. I was surprised Fallout 76 never put in any sort of dog friend to help you out, but now I see Bethesda were just taking their time getting round to it. In a Q&A on Reddit yesterday, a couple of developers teased some of the stuff coming to the wastelands…

There’s a special deer in Fallout 76 that will lead you to stashes of loot (but players keep killing it)

The next time you come across a Radstag in Fallout 76, have a quick check of its name before you start pelting it with bullets. The Wastelanders update brought with it many new and wondrous things, and one of those was the Observant Radstag. These albino versions of Fallout's radioactive deer are a bit different to their regular Radstag brothers and sisters - some say,…

The Wastelanders update has put some new food on the menu for Fallout 76’s cannibals

Scrolling through the Fallout 76 subreddit last night, I came across a post that was a little different from the rest of the excited fans eagerly waiting to meet their first NPC wastelanders in the new update. "Best thing about Wastelanders," it said. "I'll actually have a steady non-rotten food supply. This post made by Cannibal Gang."This user wasn't alone, either. Their post was met…

Steam users tried to review bomb Fallout 76, but some of its fans are having none of it

Yesterday, Fallout 76 arrived on Steam, bringing with it the brand new Wastelanders update. It almost seems like a total refresh for the game, introducing human NPCs, warring factions, quests to complete, as well as a bunch of much needed quality of life changes to the Wastelands of Appalachia. You'd almost think Bethesda added all these things purely to spite 76's players however, because shortly…
