Fallout 76: Watch A Nuke Go Off In Real Time (VIDEO)
Bethesda is bringing multiplayer to the Wasteland in the upcoming Fallout 76 and fans are predictably excited to experience the first tastes of irradiated delights later on this month. Of course, one of the game’s biggest features introduces the ability to launch nukes onto the map, providing a dose of both heaven or hell depending on perspective.
While one would assume this means serving rival players a plate of mushroom clouds for breakfast, this is not entirely the case. Reigniting the nuclear war won’t be possible as the big bombs aren’t available to just anyone with an itchy trigger finger. This makes their glorious sparse appearances in Fallout 76 all the more significant, with a new gameplay video from Comic Book demonstrating as such below:
As seen above, players are given plenty of warning beforehand, offering several minutes to prepare before the bomb’s eventual atom-splitting touchdown. Another aspect keeping these WMDs on the DL is the purposefully convoluted means of obtaining them, as players must first gain significant quest progress before the feature is even unlocked.
While it’s easy to see the gorgeous appeal of nuclear destruction, Fallout 76 has a myriad of other happenings to keep players engrossed in their country roads adventures. For starters, the game features a massive explorable map, a loot trading system, and plenty of interesting items to discover along the way. More info is rolling in as Fallout 76 launches for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 14th. The B.E.T.A. begins for each system at the end of October.
