On Sunday night, the Massively OP staff gathered in our virtual office to watch and discuss the Bethesda conference. There really was a little something for all of us, including reveals and enough cheesiness to mock. But for me, I was there to hear more about Fallout 76 and to get a feel for the vision that the studio has for its next installment of this post-apocalyptic franchise.
I’ll be up front about this: I was cheering so hard when I heard that the studio was taking the game to an online multiplayer setting. It’s been something I’ve wanted to see happen for ages now, and I can’t wait to comb the wasteland as a scavenger and hang out with others.
That said, there’s a lot of concern over the PvP angle, including the decision to hand over nuclear warheads to players to launch. For those of us who want to play with others and build structures without harassment, it does raise some concerns. While we need to hear a lot more in terms of specifics of how this game will function, let’s get your gut reaction. Will Fallout 76 be a griefer’s paradise or a gamer’s dream — or something else entirely?
