For those who were disappointed by the largely buggy and incredibly underwhelming Bethesda MMO, you may be shocked to hear about the all-new Fallout 76 subscription. Yep.
Fallout 1st introduces a number of important features that players of the MMO have been requesting for months. Bethesda still also gift subscribers with membership bonuses and exclusive items.
The following bonuses are included with the membership:
Private Worlds: Play in a Private World exclusively for you and up to seven friends.
Scrapbox: Unlimited storage for crafting components in your own new Scrapbox container.
Survival Tent: A new playable fast travel point with a stash, Sleeping Bag, and more for your basic needs.
Atoms: Receive 1,650 Atoms per month to use in the Atomic Shop.
Ranger Armour Outfit: An iconic Fallout outfit, exclusively for members.
Icons and Emotes Pack: Unique icons and Emotes, available only for members.
Thankfully, the most requested feature – private worlds – will be available for player groups with just one Fallout 1st subscriber. That means groups are technically just renting a server to play privately.
“Only the owner of a private world is required to be a Fallout 1st member,” Bethesda writes. “Head into your private world, open your Social menu once you’re in-game, and start inviting your friends to kick off the party. You can also create a squad outside of your private world and then switch to it to bring everyone along at once. Should the owner of the private world leave, the world will still stay active as long as one other player in the world is a Fallout 1st member.”
The Fallout 76 subscription will be available in two forms: players can either purchase one month at a time or purchase a yearly bundle with a 36% discount. These cost $12.99 and $99.99 respectively. After cancelling, players will still have access to the atoms they’ve earned and any items in their Scrapbox.
While this new feature finds its way into the Fallout MMO, players are still awaiting the upcoming free expansion. Aiming to turn 76 into a proper Fallout title, this DLC would have been a great addition to the title… Maybe even enough to warrant a subscription.
