Fallout 76 previews personal vending machines and other features coming next week

It just wouldn’t be a Fallout game without rusty antique signs and vending machines, now would it? Bethsoft agrees, and this week it’s previewing the personal vending machines en route to Fallout 76 on May 7th.

“With Patch 9, we’re going to add personal Vending Machines that aspiring entrepreneurs around Appalachia can use to turn their C.A.M.P.s into makeshift markets,” the studio writes. “These vending machines will allow you to turn a profit by selling items you’ve made or found during your adventures. You can also visit other Dwellers’ C.A.M.P.s to pick up new gear for your collection.”

Essentially, players who build these vendors can upload whatever they want to sell from their stash, select the prices, and the advertise their C.A.M.P. location for other players.

Bethsoft’s dev blog today also says it’s adding a new mole miner vendor and legendary exchange machines so you can trade your legendary junk for scrip, plus multiple weapon balancing adjustments and updates to the survival mode scoreboard.

Still no PVE mode. Bethesda will kowtow to the small minority of players who want to take Fallout in a different direction of survival and total PVP but not to the majority of players who want to be able to simply enjoy the game on their own or with friends without the constant worry of griefing.

Well, that’s an interesting one – while there’s no ‘absolute’ PvE mode, ‘Adventure’ mode is pretty much PvE ever since they removed the minor damage you take from other players during non-consensual PvP. So now the only time you can be hurt is pretty much either (a) if you steal stuff belonging to other players or (b) if you claim a workshop and stay in its vicinity (although the last two times I did that, the other players that turned up helped defend it, presumably because the rewards are better than fighting me for it…or maybe because I looked too terrifying to tackle, lol).

I would be interested to know in the Adventure/Survival player split though, to know if Fallout ’76 is headed down the PvP gankbox route. I suspect, like you say, that the PvP players are vocal but still a minority. It’s just not a game that lends itself to continual entertainment in that direction compared to the other things it offers. I.e. there are better gankboxes for PvP players.

They’d have to get past my punji sticks, fences and ‘Get off my lawn’ sign first.

Still waiting on private servers and mod support that’ll likely never happen.

Gee it’s almost like they said that those things won’t be coming til sometime after November 2019.

Well, was hoping for a little more persistence with the vendors so one could sell stuff while off line, but this will work. Being able to set up a shop at the house out in the open world is something I’ve missed in…these online games…for many, many years. This might be the bridge I needed to get to Classic.

I’d be nice if they set up a small trading town run by *gasp* human NPCs where players wold be able to rent vending space for a cut of the profits. You don’t want to pay rent? You’d still be able to set up vending in your C.A.M.P. rent-free.
