Fallout 76 previews the Burrows and the new in-game camera

Of course there's a sewer level.

It’s taken a little while, but Fallout 76 is getting that staple of video games, the sewer level. Yes, that’s the core of what’s going on with the Burrows, a new dungeon that’s being unlocked in the game on April 16th. You can read all about it in the latest preview on the official site. It’s meant for two players at level 50+, but particularly well-geared players may be able to take it on solo, and of course you can roll in with more people if you so desire.

The new in-game camera was originally meant to launch at the same time, but it’s now going to be somewhat delayed; still, it should be a welcome addition to the game when you first find one and start equipping it in lieu of a weapon. The down side will be that you won’t have a weapon, obviously, but the bright side will be the ability to snap shots, see names of nearby critters and locations, and the general satisfaction of being a shutterbug.

My prediction was F76 would become one of the must play games of 2019, starting to look as this may come true.

I find even the haters are playing, i’m sure they’ll justify their 180’s somehow. I guess hating on F76 isn’t the lemming thing to do anymore?

Too bad SWG:L has me under complete lockdown, lol, cause i really don’t care anymore (atm).

I only wanted to check out the emu, like really was all about the challenge to get it going, which was mind numbing easy, made an account.

hmm it’s pretty good, meh we’ll find how i am in a month once the novelty wears off.

2 months later it’s still #1 on the runway with zero competition. How old was that f’ing game again? Talk about standing the test of time.

For those people planning a long career in Fallout ’76 photography, AGI is the stat that increases your stealth, and don’t forget your level 3 Sneak perk.

For those planning a somewhat shorter career, come as you are.

The sewers in Fallout 4 were great, I loved them. Nice to see some underground fun coming to 76 too.

Good to see they added the camera, even if they are a bit slow.

Was pleasantly surprised to see The Division 2 launched with this in-game camera photo mode as a feature.

Just to be clear F76 already has a fully featured photo mode with filters etc and I believe that was in at launch too though I can’t remember for sure to be honest.

This is just an in game item that makes the process feel a bit more organic within the game world and to add a bit of roleplay potential I guess.

Yep, the photo mode was in at launch. Because ironically it had the ability to turn depth-of-field off when the game itself didn’t at that point :)

… as you can see from this photo that the clan of giant fire ants have accepted me as one of their own.

Hey great idea wildlife photographer of the wastelands. I could do really really interesting slide shows that for sure won’t be boring in the slightest :p
