When it transpired that Fallout would be exploring online territory for Fallout 76, we weren't too sure that it was the right direction for the series to take. After all, Bethesda's series in its current guise has been about venturing into the post-apocalyptic wasteland alone, with maybe only a dog or super mutant friend as company.
While you can still play Fallout 76 as a lone survivor, facing feral ghouls and rogue androids with no one to back you up, it seems to defeat the object somewhat, this being a game better played with others, if you want to get the most out of it. And with public events and such, there's only so much you can achieve alone.
That's one thing that became abundantly clear while playing Fallout 76's recent B.E.T.A., which has to make a few concessions being always online and all that. V.A.T.S. just isn't the same, for instance, but then the card-based S.P.E.C.I.A.L. perks are quite cool. Swings and roundabouts, eh?
Fallout 76's B.E.T.A. commences tonight on PlayStation 4 and PC until 4th November, with the next session live today at 7pm ET. You can consult the Fallout 76 Beta schedule here.
