Fallout 76 Will Get Free Updates And DLC For Years (VIDEO)
Ever since the massive first reveal of Fallout 76 at Bethesda’s E3 2018 conference, the latest upcoming entry of the popular series has been in the spotlight, with fans hunting for any new tidbit of information regarding the game. Recently, we reported that a NoClip documentary revealed that Fallout 76 would have microtransactions. While that often-times would give cause for alarm, the documentary revealed the types of purchases that will be available within the game, and how it will benefit Fallout 76 over time. Here’s the full documentary:
During the NoClip documentary it was revealed that microtransactions will only be used for cosmetics items, so no pay-to-win here. Additionally, each of the available cosmetics can all be acquired in-game through normal gameplay, so the microtransactions will simply act as a shortcut, according to Director of Bethesda Chris Mayer.
That’s not the only good news, either. The profit from the microtransactions will be split up a few different ways. First, some of the funding will help offset the costs of running and maintaining the game’s servers. Additionally, and much more exciting, the rest of the money will go towards funding two different types of content for Fallout 76: small, low impact ones that will contain items and/or new events, and larger, more impactful ones that will bring in new quests and areas into what is shaping up to be an already massive game. With the microtransaction model in place this means that players will continue to get free access to new DLC for years to come.
Fallout 76 arrives on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 14, 2018.
