New Fallout: The Frontier Trailer Released – “Not Your Kind of People” (VIDEO)
We learned a whole lot about Fallout 76 during Bethesda’s E3 presentation. The new setting promises to be larger than any Fallout game before it and features Multiplayer with a handful of players in the world at one time. The West Virginia location will also feature allusions to the state’s folklore including the Mothman and The Flatwoods Monster. Bethesda Game Studios Director Todd Howard put on a strong showing and spoke convincingly about this brave new direction for the series.
However, that wasn’t all we heard about Fallout in the past week. We also got a new trailer for the ambitious expansion mod, Fallout: The Frontier. The project has been in development for years now and is finally reaching the final stages before official release. When that launch is, we don’t know yet, but the developers have said that testing is underway and they are aiming for a date sometime this year. Check out the new trailer below:
As you can see in the video above, the mod is quite the unique experience from the Mojave Desert setting in the base game. Players will venture to the frozen Northwest to assist the NCR in a campaign against the Legion for a secret waiting to be found. Players will encounter new NPCs, weapons, armor, and plenty of locations to explore. A new mechanic thrown into the mix is the “Chill Factor,” which will exude adverse effects onto the player if they are in a particularly cold area of the map wearing unsuitable armor, so bundle up!
The mod will also feature vehicle set pieces, a first for the Bethesda-era Fallout games. This includes Vertibirds, Tanks, and APCs all assisting in battle. This seems like a really exciting addition, as most large-scale encounters in the series don’t feature many vehicles getting involved. The trailer really makes these battles look cinematically impressive and epic in tone.
The Frontier sounds like a fantastically fresh way to play New Vegas and hopefully, this should tide us over until we get our hands on Fallout 76! Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers over on Twitter for more updates on the release of The Frontier. For more on the upcoming Fallout 76 from Bethesda, however, check out the following:
