Try out battle royale in the wastelands.
Fallout 76 had a lot of issues at launch, there’s no doubt about that. But Bethesda, to their credit, have done a lot of altering to the game to bring it up to snuff. Whether it’s been enough is up to the players to decide, but the content is still coming. At this year’s E3, we got a look at the next step in the game’s evolution with the Wastelanders expansion, which will add NPCs and full questlines later this year. The game, however, is also getting a battle royale mode in the form of Nuclear Winter, and you can get a sneak peak of that now.
Nuclear Winter is a battle royal mode where 52 players fight to the death for the honor of being overseer of Vault 51. In the most recent update, Bethesda detailed how the mode would work, and are giving players a pre-beta sneak peak until June 17th.
But it’s not just other players you’ll have to worry about, as during the match the game will spawn various enemies and hazards that effect all players. There’s also a team-based version of the mode, as you can form squads with friends. You can read a partial list of the details below, or look here for the full description and Update 10 patch notes.
Fallout 76 is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A free trial of the game is going on across all versions until June 17th.
