i like that PVP is optional....

  • PVP is completely optional. A player must accept your challenge before you can fight each other.
  • It is possible to kill other players without challenging them, but it is difficult and makes you a WantedMurderer. In what is perhaps the best anti-griefing measure I’ve seen in a game, this places a bounty on your head, makes you visible on every player’s map, and doles out the bounty reward from your own pocket. You can be a troll, but at least you’ll be a broke troll.
  • If a player kills you, you are given the option to block them, seek revenge for double reward, or simply keep playing.

Yeah seems like a good way to implement it!

Sounds kinda like the division (rogue agents) or Elite Dangerous (killing other players puts a bounty on your head for others to collect). It wont completely stop griefing as it still happens in both the games I just mentioned, but it'll keep it from becoming a total sh*t show, especially with the money coming out of your own pocket if you kill someone and have your bounty collected, that part I like. Means the trolls will have to work harder to keep up.

Hopefully it's implemented well. Things can sound good on paper but still be totally worthless. Elites crime and punishment system is broken as fuck

Hopefully fallouts system is tight but fair if there's a mistake by a player..

Not like elites where the other night I was running passenger missions in my unshielded anaconda and didn't realise I had a wanted passenger on board.. The base didn't like that and opened fire, I got a 1200cr fine (bugger all given I'm earning about 12-15m per run) but then when I suck into the system and paid the fine I was transported 300+ly away to a prison.. Took be half an hour just to get back to the system.

Spaz doesn't like the sound of that. 4-8 hours US time ain't good!

That seems fairly restrictive... and likely to be at the worse possible time for us aussies as usual.

Bethesda has stated that it is purely to stress test servers and the game in general, thus will be primetime for US and perhaps sometimes EU. Great preorder bonus for AU region.

If they were really interested to do stress tests the beta wouldn't be hidden behind a paywall (who knows, maybe beta will become open at a later date).

BETA will have this type of off/on status up until the week before release, and it will be streamable.

Character progress from the Fallout 76 BETA will carry over into the full release.

Interesting to see/hear more about it, sounds very much like an improved fallout 4 with multiplayer, hopefully we'll get some time in the beta to check it out before launch.

Not a good sign given we're only about a month away from launch.... though when have the fallout Bethesda games ever been released and been flawless.

Yeah FO3 was the worst. It was a year before they fixed the crashing issue.

Spaz accepts it because the content is always (fingers crossed) so good!
