Fallout 76 blasts off into season one today

With a retro board game theme and an eye to drawing players back into the game, Fallout 76’s first season officially kicks off today. Running through the middle of September, the season challenges players to work their way up 100 ranks by participating in a whole slew of activities in the wasteland.

“Complete in-game activities to earn S.C.O.R.E. points and advance your position on the game board,” Bethesda explained. “Challenges are given daily and weekly asking you to do everything from chewing bubblegum to killing creatures in a nuked zone.”

So what’s in it for you? A hundred ranks means 100 rewards for the taking. There are some pretty good ones right off the bat, too, including an ammo converter machine at rank 5, glow-in-the-dark wallpaper at rank 19, and all sorts of free ATOMs, perk packs, and party-buffing lunchboxes.

My only gripe about this is that Fallout has never been much about space, or space sci-fi. There are a very small amount of “ufo” references and such, but thats about it.

The visuals of this season easily look like something from the “competing” game, Outer Worlds, which is… a space game.

They decided to make it themed after Captain Cosmos, which is an in-universe franchise similar to Flash Gordon in the real world.

Also, the monkey is more beloved than the hero.

So you just do some things you already did but do more of them? To earn some useless buffs? Or an “ammo converter”? All of which are essentially useless because there exists a cheat which allows you to just kill every enemy you point towards without using any ammo even through all walls at any distance, and which I have seen people use for long time because Bethesda does not care to add detection for this kind of cheat. Or a useless cosmetic items which nobody except your friends will see because this game is still anti-social without global text chat and you still cannot rejoin specific server unless your friend is already on that server and actively playing or you pay for instanced server with smaller amount of players. Yea, really great incentive to get back and earn those. /sarcasm

And Bethesda still completely neglects their Nuclear Winter mode, which can be fun but only if you do not encounter a cheater who flies around the map and insta-kills everyone he can spot, which happens pretty frequently because as I said before Bethesda does not care about adding cheat detection for the most popular cheat which is available for free.

Just because cheats exist doesn’t mean all, or even most players cheat.

As for being anti-social our first night of setting up a public team saw a new member being added to our friends lists.

I mean, it’s almost as if you don’t play and have no idea of what you speak of.

Pretty much. Yeah.
