Bethesda aren’t planning a digital announce-o-rama for June

June is typically a big month for gaming announcements but as with many other things, the Covid-19 coronavirus is putting a hold on that. Whether at E3 proper or in the week leading up to it, big publishers like Bethesda use the month to show off plans for the year. E3 is cancelled, as are many other gaming events, and according to Bethesda it won't…

Fallout 76’s Wastelanders update is delayed as Bethesda adapt to working from home

Unfortunately, Fallout 76 players are going to have to wait a tiny bit longer to meet its new human NPC residents, as the Wastelanders update has been pushed back by one week. Rather than coming on April 7th, the update will instead hit on the 14th, because Bethesda haven't been able to do some of the final testing it needs due to setbacks from Covid-19.…

Meet the actual humans of Fallout 76: Wastelanders in Bethesda’s 20 minute preview

Alright folks, it's really happening. Fallout 76, the online Fallout game where the only people in town were other players, is getting more people. Fake people, that is, because it turns out that fleshy faces were quite missed in irradiated West Virginia despite the many amusing robot characters wandering around. As long promised, Bethesda are sending human characters into the mix to begin rebuilding, quest…

Fallout 76 coming to Steam in April alongside new NPC update

Update: Hi there, it's me, the idiot who somehow thought we were in April. This month is, in fact, February. How is it only February. All this will happen on April 7th, not February 7th. Is it really still only February? After fifteen months exclusive to Bethesda's own store on PC, Fallout 76 has now finalised a Steam launch date of April 7th - also…

Bethesda repatriate Fallout 76 theft victims through in-game clone meetups

Last month, hackers stole Fallout 76 items from player inventories while they were inside the game, literally pinching the shirts from their backs. Bethesda's solution has been to create clones of affected players with their pre-theft inventories intact. If victims want to keep the gear they've gained since the hack and not switch to a month-old backup, Bethesda are offering an unusual experience: they'll log…

Bethesda want you to test Fallout 76’s Wastelanders update

Since its launch, Fallout 76 players have been hoping for human NPCs and the stories that follow them to return to the wasteland. Bethesda must have agreed that its irradiated West Virginia was lacking because they announced the Wastelander update last year to bring human companions and related quests to the game. The update has been delayed to an unspecified time in 2020. It must be…

This Fallout 76 player made a killer maths test

Yes, I know. Fallout 76 is not exactly a beloved game what with the whole Fallout 1st subscription launching at the same time the free Wastelanders update was delayed. Before that was the game's initial, buggy launch. There are still players out there who do seem to love it and continue to make delightfully silly creations all over irradiated West Virginia. This now-notorious player, for instance,…

Skyrim grandma Shirley Curry will follow you around Tamriel soon

Shirley Curry is better known online as the "Skyrim grandma" who begins her YouTube videos with a genial "good morning grandkids" before setting out on adventures in Tamriel. Curry has become dear to enough of her fans that a petition to have her added to The Elder Scrolls 6 helped prompt Bethesda to announce they would do just that. A new Elder Scrolls game is…

Fallout 76 paid subscribers have formed a peasant-trashing aristocracy

Reports of class warfare in Fallout 76 were probably overblown, but far from fabricated. The recent introduction of Fallout 1st, a paid subscription service offering cosmetics, conveniences and (not-so) private servers, has created something of a rift. At first that just meant the odd subscriber got attacked by people in bear costumes. Now the subscribers are fighting back, with 300 of them joining a clan…

Fallout 76 Australian players will get refunds they were denied

ZeniMax, the parent company of Bethesda, will offer refunds on Fallout 76 to many Australian customers who were previously denied them. They'd previously said the people weren't entitled to refunds under ZeniMax rules, but Australian authorities piped up to point out that Australian laws meant yes, they were. This isn't a slam on Fallout 76, just another games company doing international business without understanding local…

Feature: Country roads will now be gravel, unless you have the tarmac upgrade for £1.99/month

Fallout 76 players have a decidedly mixed response to the Fallout 1st subscription

At the heart of Fallout 76, there’s always been friction between what people wanted it to be, and what it actually is. To begin with, this manifested as an apprehension over whether an online Fallout game was the right move for the series. Over time, it grew into other concerns about the game’s business model and Bethesda’s perceived mismanagement of the Atomic Shop. Now, Bethesda…

Bethesda acknowledge parts of Fallout 76’s subscription service are broken

Earlier this week Fallout 76 introduced a subscription service charging £12 a month or £100 a year for various things Bethesda shouldn't have, along with the more reasonable inclusion of private servers. It isn't reasonable to charge for the convenience of a box with infinite storage and a deployable fast travel tent. Even less so when some of these things do not seem to work.…

Feature: Where somebody knows your name, maybe, probably

Pull up a stool in the player-made bars of Fallout 76

Despite living in the aftermath of a nuclear apocalypse, Fallout players have never been short on places to drink. It makes sense, I guess. If your days are spent fighting off irradiated terrors, it stands to reason you’d want to go somewhere to let off steam. But Fallout 76 launched without NPCs. Nary a bartender with a friendly ear to be seen (at least not…

Fallout 76 launches private servers as part of premium membership

Surprise! Fallout 76 now has a premium membership service selling the ability to host private servers as well as access to a number of items with clear in-game benefits. Named Fallout 1st, the service costs £12 per month or £100 for a whole year in one go. It's little surprise that hosting private servers costs cash but making them part of a service also selling…

Fallout 76 delays Wastelanders, but private servers arrive next week

Fallout 76's long-awaited flesh-and-blood NPCs won't be arrive in West Virginia this year. Bethesda has delayed the free Wastelanders update into early 2020, leaving players alone in the post-apocalypse with each other for a few months longer. But there's a silver lining to this mushroom cloud. Private Worlds finally arrive in Fallout 76 next week, giving survivors the option for some much-needed permanence.

Fallout 76 will be getting a public test server and perk loadouts in 2020

I can’t believe it’s been ten months since I was camped in Fallout 76’s wrecked Appalachia for the winter. I had a good time with ‘76, and I would probably return if something big enough happened to warrant a revisit. So it's nice to know that Bethesda are still stirring the coals of the game - they've announced a public test server is coming next…

20,000 Fallout 76 power armour helmets are being recalled due to health risk

Just as it seemed like Bethesda had sorted their issues with nylon collector's bags, it turns out they've gone and sold a health hazard disguised as a Fallout 76 helmet. Manufacturer Chronicle has issued a recall of an estimasted 20,000 T-51b Power Armor collectible helmets sold by US retailer GameStop over a risk of mold exposure.
