Last week, we were told an awful lot about the dialogue system and NPC interaction that’s arriving to Fallout 76, but now we’re being shown that thanks to a video from a Bethesda Game Days panel which ran alongside PAX East 2020 that was all about these talkative NPCs, and hot damn it’s looking more like a Fallout game already.
The panel showcased several NPC interactions as well as a new location that’s coming with Wastelanders called the Wayward, a new bar that’s close to the Overseer’s Camp. The panel promised that Wastelanders will be offering something for all players to get in to, with a new intro for fresh arrivals as well as a variety of NPC interactions and reactions that are unique to high-level characters. The devs in the panel also promise that information delivered by NPCs for quests can be as specific or as in-depth as players want, with additional dialogue options that offer up extra details should players want them.
If you’re the kind of person who would rather watch how things are working rather than read about how they’re meant to work, the embedded video below will likely be very valuable to you.
