In the last couple of years, there has been a lot of talk about an online Fallout game. Everyone seemed to want it but Bethesda was not so keen on giving the people what they want. That is, of course, until they unveiled Fallout 76 – the first every online-only Fallout game that was set to make it big! Now with the Beta already in full fledge, it’s time to roll up our sleeves and present you with our very own Fallout 76 review. So, let’s get straight to the good stuff and check out the online Wastelands!
Fallout 76 Review | Online Wastelands at its Finest
There were many questions regarding Fallout 76’s beta. The first and foremost – how good is the combat? Well, let’s just say it didn’t disappoint! I haven’t used a lot of weapons so far, but PVP encounters I’ve experienced so far were thrilling, to say the least. Everything happens quite fast and precision is the key. However, keep in mind that nerfs and buffs to certain weapons and stats can change the combat dynamic at any point in time. Who knows, people who like playing video games for money might even be impressed with the combat system in beta.
There are other aspects of the game that need to be mentioned in our Fallout 76 review. Servers and other technicalities are up there at the very top. However, I haven’t noticed any real drawbacks as far as the server connection is concerned. Everything ran smoothly even with a good number of players on the screen. Combat was smooth as well so there are really no bad remarks in this section.
Moving onto the graphics and general presentation, the game looks absolutely brilliant. Yes, there’s a good deal of graphics customization because, after all, we’re talking about an online-only game… but as far as the actual environment diversity is concerned, Fallout 76 is brilliant. The environment is not only diverse but rich and self-sufficient too. It’s not at the level of GTA games, but it is pretty good coming from a studio with a single-player-only background.
Fallout 76 Release Date and Pricing
Fallout 76 is set to be released (we are talking about the full version here) on the 14th November 2018. Keep in mind though, the beta has been going on for quite a while so players already know a great deal about the game. This is great for the development process as most of the bugs will be recognized in due time. In other words, the majority of them will hopefully get fixed by the time the full game is released.
As far as the pricing is concerned, if you want to pre-order the game on the official Microsoft Store website, you will have to splash out $60. That’s the cheapest option, believe it or not. There are other (read more expensive ones) too. For instance, Fallout 76 Tricentennial Edition will set you back for $80 which is $20 more than the standard version. However, if you don’t need the game on day 1, you will probably be able to get a cheaper deal. Online sellers usually have significant discounts soon after the game launches. That’s why it’s always a good idea to wait a bit before buying the game on day 1. It’s much more cost effective, to say the least.
Wrapping Things Up…
As far as our Fallout 76 review is concerned, I guess that pretty much sums it up! Fallout 76 seems like a great game so far. Sure, there will be a few bugs here and there, but they will all surely be taken care of with future updates. After all, this is Bethesda we are talking about here… And we all know they like to keep their games as smooth, clean and bug-free as possible!
