Fallout 76 enlists the community to build a Brotherhood of Steel base

WoW Classic isn’t the only game in town that’s throwing massive community construction events these days. Starting early next month, Fallout 76 is enlisting its entire band of vault dwellers to help make a new base. And not just any base — but one for the incoming Brotherhood of Steel.

“The Brotherhood of Steel have set their sights on Appalachia (who hasn’t these days?) and a man named Russell Dorsey believes they’re en route to ATLAS Observatory,” Bethesda said. “Starting August 4th, you can join in a community-wide effort to construct a prospective base for the Brotherhood and help unlock new events and cosmetic rewards for everyone.”

If the whole community can deliver the millions of units of steel, concrete, and other materials within certain time frames, then everyone on the server will get spiffy rewards. These include a Brotherhood beret, a CAMP banner, and your very own robot. The event will run through September 10th.

Also coming next month is an all-digital QuakeCon (August 7th through the 9th), where Fallout 76 devs will appear to talk about and show off the game.

Sounds boring as hell plus from what I’ve heard is dupers are gunna kill this in minutes rather rebuild the enclave

Give me a nice scorchbeast saddle and a big bag of mini-nukes to give BoS the welcome party they really deserve. I understand why Bethesda might want to lead off with the iconic Brotherhood, but I’d rather sabotage, harry and drive them off than HELP them.

Agreed, I would think the BOS would be none to happy with the vault dweller who disregarded Captain Maxim’s directive to not use a nuclear solution no matter what the reason.

I can also see them being determined to wrestle control of such tech out of the hands of the gen pop and only retained by themselves.

I hope one day in the future that games will be almost entirely inclusive of player built content. Skyrim mods and Mario Maker 2 levels are two illustrations of how creative and talented players can design and build content which far outshines anything the original development team can muster. If you give players a decent game and a solid framework to build their own content on then they can entertain themselves and others for many years.

But how much money can developers make from player made content?

If the answer is zero then you are not understanding the economic world gamers live in now.

The Mario Maker games sold really well…
They could still micro-transaction outfits and skins, and still build a game with less limitations

LOL. Really disappointing how Bethesda keeps milking this game instead of letting people to just host this game servers on their own hardware and mod it any way they want to including increasing number of players or doing things like adding any vehicles or any kind of companions or set up social events for everyone like concerts or racing games or anything like that.

I know that some people do not mind being milked in this way (I know a long time online friend who still pays for subscription for this game) and it is always up to them how they want to spend their own money but it is disappointing to see game in such condition when it could’ve been much more interesting and had much more people playing it if people could’ve fixed many issues with it and improved the gameplay and performance. This would’ve even made Nuclear Winter more fun because the cheaters could’ve been permanently banned from custom servers and banned much faster, the mod creators could’ve even written basic cheat detection for custom servers which could’ve detected a very well known free cheat that is very popular and not detected by Bethesda.

But that would not make them anywhere near the same money as the Game as a service. Its all about that money not making few people happy to play by themselves.

Thing is, if your game is so broken and so limited that it does not have enough people to pay for cosmetic items or for sub fee – you will not make any significant amount of money on any “services”. On the other hand, if your game is great and has a lot of people willing to play it (especially if game allows user hosted servers and allows users to fix issues so, for example, you can have custom server which can host 100’s of people) – you will earn a lot of money just by selling the copies of the game, without your own cosmetic store or forcing people to pay subscription.

And Fallout 76 is still pretty much broken, and since Bethesda does not want to fix it (they do not even add detection for a very popular free cheat for their Nuclear Winter mode and they do not even want to add text chat into game) – they should just stop forcing their own cosmetic store onto everyone (there are client-side cosmetic mods already available for this game for FREE so for people who want to make their stuff look pretty for themselves Bethesda’s own cosmetics store is irrelevant) as well as ridiculous subscription fee for private instance of their servers and just let everyone to host their own servers and fix all issues with the game. This way they can still make money on selling copies of the game and they can even earn the trust of some of their customers back so those customers may still consider buying future games from Bethesda.
