Game online multiplayer first developed

Previous series like Fallout 4 (gameplay similar to Fallout 3 And Fallout: New Vegas with concept open world) And Fallout Shelter (simulation in two-dimensional view) played with single-player.

Well, in Fallout 76 this is the first time, Bethesda Game Studios has finally developed a series Fallout which can be played online online multiplayer. You can play individually or with your friends up to three people.

If you kill other players, you will get status wanted. This means that all other players from around the world will target you to kill you.

There’s no point in killing other players because it will only complicate your journey. If you choose not to fight, the status that allows other players to attack you will decrease.

Important tips for survival

You have to be able to balance between your character’s body conditions starting from Well Rested, Well Fed, Well Tuned, Hydrated, and be careful of Diseases And Mutations in order to stay alive.

A number of tips things that can help you survive are avoiding areas exposed to radiation, sleeping in locations that are safe from enemy attacks, eating cooked food, and drinking only from clean water sources.

The equipment used has usage limits so if it breaks, you have to make it in the Workshop or find it elsewhere. All items weigh, including ammunition, so managing the capacity of items is very important.

You must be able to determine what to collect, what to consume, and when.

If you lose the battle, your character can be revived by other players if they have Stimpak items. If your character dies, you can choose a location respawn to do Fast Travel from World Map.

When you die, your character will drop all existing Junk (building components) and receive quests on respawn to take it back.

You can develop too progression your character uses a SPECIAL where all attributes will be displayed in card form Perk and each has a different effect.

Added CAMP mode to the Workshop

Workshop is used as a workshop to do crafting objects from the resources that have been collected. There is a new mode, namely CAMP (Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform) in the Workshop.

This mode allows you to move your workshop anywhere in the area folder to use as home base well it’s after using Fast Travel or Respawn.

When you move CAMP, all building structures will be saved in shape Blueprints so you can quickly rebuild it.

CAMP also allows you to access Stash as a container for storing goods collected during the trip. Stash can also be found at Train Stations And Red Rocket Stations.

Fallout 76 also features Public Workshops which can be shared with teammates and accessed through battle, either by clearing the area in folder or challenge other players.

Even some locations in folder features real locations in the region such as the West Virginia State Capitol, The Greenbrier, Woodburn Circle, New River Gorge Bridge, and Camden Park.

Fallout 76 also features many new mutation monsters such as Mothman and Flatwoods which are based on the folklore of West Virginia.

Feature combat will still use VATS

VATS stands for Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting Systemthat is, elements combat in series Fallout which mixes the combination hybrid between timeturn-based And real-time combat.

When you activate this feature while fighting an enemy or shooting at an enemy, the time will be paused and the game’s camera view will be reversed visual effects from bullet time.

Effect from bullet time In this case, the game screen will display the HUD in four categories, namely HP, AP, TargetNameAnd Target Specific Areas.

HP is Health Points which indicates the player’s blood count. AP is Action Points which tells the number of bullets remaining of the weapon used.

TargetName is the name of the enemy being fought. Target Specific Areas is the result of scanning the damage level of the enemy’s body parts in percent ratio.

You only have three choices when fighting starting from aiming at the enemy’s head to get quick killsmashing the enemy’s legs to slow down their movement, or shooting the weapon the enemy is holding.

Then, is this VATS combat feature important? The answer is yes! In VATS, Target Specific Areas is the most important. Why? This section will make it easier for you to deal massive damage to enemies.

There are many types of enemies in Fallout ranging from mammals, reptiles, birds, insects to aliens. And Fallout 76 also brings this feature in players versus players adapted to each outfit.

All of these types of enemies have been exposed to radiation from nukes and many have very large sizes and have different weaknesses. So you have to know very well the weak points of the enemy’s body before launching an attack.

For example, you can shoot the head Wilder Ghul to kill him quickly but it doesn’t apply to Super Mutants like Berserk who has a soft spot on his stomach.

Make a nuclear war for domination!

This part can be regarded as irony above irony. Nuclear, which actually has a bad impact, is a part that must be done in this game.

You and your team can activate nukes with Nukes and destroy all areas around them. The process of launching a Nuke is quite complicated and time-consuming, but the end result will provide a rare resource that can be collected for crafting objects at even higher levels.

With the size folder which is bigger than the previous series, complexity progression characters and features combat between other players and enemies shows that Fallout 76 is Bethesda’s biggest ambition in making games online multiplayer hers.
