It’s hard to know how to feel about the preview of Fallout 76’s upcoming raid on Vault 94 as a long-time MMO player. The article itself talks in detail about the idea that this area will be instanced, so other players can’t disrupt it, and we imagine most veterans will be torn between feeling faintly patronized and patronizing the article right back. “Aw, bless, you’re providing instanced content now just like a real MMO! That’s so cute.”
But hey, why not split the difference? The important thing is that the raid on Vault 94 looks like fun for players, taking a full team of level 50+ players into the site to take on one of three missions within the depths. Successful completion offers various rewards as well as Vault Steel used to craft items, with more rewards coming from taking on higher difficulty levels (you can’t learn armor plans at Novice difficulty, for example). So even if the concept might not feel exceedingly novel for veterans of the genre, it at least still does look fun.
