Fallout 76 Team Opens Up About Logged-Off Character Looting, Trading Options

Fallout 76 is one of the most highly anticipated titles of the year, though the growing fan base for the game is not without its worries. As the title will release sporting ‘always-on multiplayer,’ many have begun to worry about what could happen to their character once the player chooses to exit the game. Can other players find their sleeping avatar? Loot them? Kill them? Creepily stare at them? These are the burning questions of the fan base, and thankfully, Bethesda is here to answer them.

As revealed by Pete Hines, if a player logs off, their character goes away immediately, even if they were sleeping before said player closes out of the game. This is of course important in ensuring that no harm will come to a player’s character once they are no longer playing the game, and quite frankly it would be hard to imagine that not being the case, with the most noteworthy exception being that of ARK: Survival Evolved.

Another topic that came up recently was that of player trading, and how much leniency there is when selling goods to other human players. Pete Hines once again comes to the rescue, revealing that players can charge whatever they want for anything they are looking to trade/sell, with the additional option to simply give good away by charging 0 Caps.

Fallout 76 launches for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 14th, 2018.

    I suck at pricing. Hopefully, when you go to do that, a price pops up to show the suggested/norm for the object–which you can keep, or change. I will need a pricing guide…lol.
