Fallout 76 will gain NPCs and a new main quest with Wastelanders update

Bethesda has confirmed that Fallout 76 will receive NPCs, a new main quest, dialogue trees and consequence causing decision making this fall as part of the game's free Wastelanders update. 

With this update, Wastelanders will return to Appalachia as part of the game's Settlers and Raiders factions, enabling players to interact with both groups, complete quests and play through unique stories for each side.  

Both factions will present players with unique companions, and a wide selection of new weapons and armour types to earn. In addition to this, a new battle royale game mode is also coming to Fallout 76 called Nuclear Winter. This game mode offers players 52-player PVP, where the last player standing becomes the overseer of vault 51.  

    Wastelanders is a massive free update to Fallout 76 that fundamentally changes the Wasteland, coming Fall 2019. One year after the opening of Vault 76, other humans have returned to Appalachia. Factions of Settlers and Raiders aim to make the world their own and claim a rumored fortune. Embark on a new main quest of choice and consequence, interact with characters and their unique stories, discover the faction settlements of Crater and Foundation, and collect powerful new weapons and armor. Your choices decide their fates.

IF, big IF, they have finally fixed the utterly broken "respec" system (not a respec system like any other game, google it and you'll see what I mean). If the respec system is fixed then it's worth while if you have a few friends to play with.

So if you do decide to grab the game, please be very careful with the points that you pick, as you can't change them easily once they are picked (yes it matters lol). I'll probably check the game out today when I get off work and see if respeccing is finally like all other MMO style games.



Of course the devs could just do the right thing and make it where you are able to play with your friends alone in your own world without other random players that would be even better. The problem with other players is if someone is lvl say 100 that one player in particular will scale all the enemies up to like 68-70 due to them being in that zone (4 total zones).

Let me just say that the two above issues make the game extremely unenjoyable at times, especially when you are trying to do a mission and the enemies are 30-40 levels higher than you. Yes they are killable, but its a bit harder by yourself and not nearly as easy as if they were your level.

The game IS fun, when the above issues dont make you wanna uninstall it lol.Quote

No. That's probably why they're actually turning the raw shell into an actual game.Quote
