Fallout 76 gives the beta edge to Xbox One and drives tourism to West Virginia
One of the perks of pre-ordering Fallout 76 is that you’ll be automatically included in the pool of B.E.T.A. testers. However, life is not always equal or fair, and as such, Xbox One players will be the very first to get their hands on this survival sandbox MMO before their PC and PlayStation 4 friends. In fact Xbone players can pre-download it right now.
Speaking of perks, PCGamesN has a look at how the character customization system will work through stats and special traits. According to the site, all perks and skills are tied to collectable cards, and you will only be allowed to have a certain number of perk cards active at any given time. Perk cards also can be shared within your party as group-wide buffs.
The game is also proving to be a boon for West Virginia’s tourism scene, as the state says that it already has seen an increased interest from Fallout fans looking to come for a visit. “We’ve never had this kind of national publicity, so we’re waiting to see what happens,” said a Camden Park ride supervisor.
