E3 2018: Fallout 76 partners with Habitat for Humanity for charity – you can contribute for a song (literally)

Still pumped for the full Fallout 76 reveal from last night? Or maybe concerned over the potential for PvP abuse? Regardless of your current position, Bethsoft is already moving to capitalize on the hype for the game with a charity promotion, and it’s for a great cause.

“In the spirit of Fallout 76 and global rebuilding, we’re proud to team up with Habitat for Humanity – a global nonprofit working in local communities across all 50 states in the U.S. and in more than 70 countries, to advance the vision that everyone deserves a decent place to call home,” the company announced this morning.

“Starting July 4, visit the iTunes store to purchase the Inkspots-inspired cover of the classic John Denver song ‘Take Me Home Country Roads’ as heard in the Fallout 76 official announcement trailer. Bethesda will donate 100% of its proceeds, with a minimum donation of $100,000, from sales of the single to Habitat for Humanity to assist in the organization’s goal of transforming lives and communities through affordable housing.”

If you’re actually at E3, you can trade 76 cents for a Fallout 76 commemorative penny at the “Mement-o-Matic coin machine” at the company’s booth. Now I kinda want one.

Would you please repost this article on July 4th?
Habitat for Humanity has a much better chance of getting $0.99 if they don’t have to rely on my memory and task management.

It’s a good cause. It is easy to be jaded when big publishers or companies make such promises and donations, but the good it does is not undone.

I’ve worked on a Habitat for Humanity home. And there is no better feeling than to watch the new occupants walk through the home, even though far from finished, with hope in their eyes. Yes, you can actually see it.

That’s great, but I still feel a large portion of the fan-base is upset at the online-only, potential griefers, can play solo but not really, and not so sure if there are NPC’s aspects of the reveal and are not ‘so pumped’ about it.

Have they said whether they’ll host PvE-only servers? That’s the answer really.

The answer for me would be more like, allow for private servers, custom rulesets, and offline local play.

Although it will need to be more than traditional “PvE.” I.e., not just preventing xxxIPWNSJWxxx from killing me but also preventing him from nuking from space stuff I have spent dozens of hours building.

No offline local play announce, but private servers AND modding are planned post-release.

I think a large portion of the player base is over-reacting based on assumptions that don’t really fit Bethesda’s M.O.

I would agree with “I think a large portion of the player base (including me) is over-reacting” but would correct the tense “don’t really fit Bethesda’s past M.O.”

Based upon Bethesda’s M.O., I would have expected the next Fallout to allow offline play, allow free Mods and not force softcore survival. TBD what happens but the E3 info currently has me worried about all three.

I like when games become a force for good.

One more reason to like Fallout :)
