Bethesda Details New PVP Mode For Fallout 76

Bethesda already made it clear that they're committed to Fallout 76 and now they've detailed their plans for expanding their currently watered down PVP experience. The developer recently revealed this new mode along with an early look at the next update on a blog post via their website.

Named Survival Mode, this new take on player vs. player combat was made to answer negative feedback regarding the current system. "Since the launch of Fallout 76, we've received lots of feedback from some of our more competitive players who requested greater challenge, fewer restrictions, and more incentives when it comes to PVP combat," Bethesda wrote. "With this in mind, we began developing Survival mode, which will bring a new way for you to engage in even more demanding, high-stakes, and deadly adventures in Fallout 76."

Fallout 76 Survival Mode Coming Later This Year

When Bethesda launches Survival Mode later this year, players will be given the choice to enter a Survival or Adventure mode (the standard Fallout 76 expereince) server upon logging in. Both of these choices will contain the same quests, items, events, and story but Survival gets rid of the restrictions that were previously placed on PVP. All players that are not on your team are marked as hostile and can engage you in combat at any time.

Survival Mode also offers a new set of penalties and rewards for those willing to take on the new challenge. Bethesda is going to actively alter the rules as players offer their feedback on the experience, but when the mode first launches players will not be able to use the "seek revenge button." Instead they'll be able to respawn back at their C.A.M.P or Vault 76. For those that score the kill, they'll be offered double the caps and a chance to gain the enemies Aid inventory.

The current launch window for the Survival beta is in March. Before that, Bethesda will be launching a new patch at the end of January that will fix another massive round of bugs, along with some quality of life upgrades.

Many long-time Fallout fans were crushed when they heard the news about Fallout 76. People wondered how this epic RPG would retain the elements that made them love the game after it was turned into an online multiplayer RPG. But Bethesda was clever. They truly made an environment where even gamers that want to play solo can enjoy themselves and those that want to embrace the multiplayer aspect can also do so. PVP isn’t toxic and the game itself is essentially just another Fallout game, just online.

Based in West Virginia, Fallout 76 brings new environments, locations, and mechanics that all help it stand out. It truly has its own unique identity and the modifications they had to make to allow the game to work as a multiplayer game didn't take away that special something that makes Fallout, Fallout.

The goal of this beta is to push their servers to the absolute limit and find any weak links before the game officially launches. It seems as though Bethesda is doing something right, after an hour of playing the Fallout 76 beta, the Gigamax Games crew only experienced one disconnect.
