Fallout 76 Character Customization, New Photo Mode Revealed (VIDEO)
As part of this year’s edition of QuakeCon, Bethesda is letting loose all sorts of interesting tidbits regarding their upcoming multiplayer title Fallout 76, detailing the game’s extreme nuke-savvy, special perk cards, and the savage surprise awaiting hapless griefers. An additional aspect touched upon was Fallout 76 character customization and the personal flourishes introduced since the series’ previous entry Fallout 4.
While players establishing their main character has become a signature part of the Fallout experience, trekking through the wasteland will be much different this time around with the floodgates opened for actual human players to occupy the setting. As such, tailor-made features are receiving greater prominence than prior titles, reflecting in Fallout 76 with the addition of a photo mode.
In the above video, our fearless leader LiLi can be heard breaking down this new feature as the character creation tool is unveiled. Choosing gender, hair, and facial features are business as usual within Fallout, but this photo mode also adds another layer of personality with the advent of poses, facial expressions, and Instagram-like color filters. Images captured in this mode are utilized for a player-specific badge, which acts as an identifiable calling card to other former members of Vault 76.
Bethesda has never shied away from RPG mechanics in the Fallout series and allowing players to mingle with other wasteland travelers seems like the inevitable next step in that idea. With so many inhabitants expected to emerge from the vault this Fall, the introduction of spiffy social features such as an I.D. badge are sure make the experience that much more immersive. Fallout 76 will launch for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One on November 14th.
