Adding further information to their recent 2019 roadmap of free content, Bethesda reveal the next addition to Fallout 76 in the form of a Brewing and Distilling crafting system, which will be joining the Wild Appalachia this March.
Bethesda to Add New Booze Crafting System to Fallout 76
Players will be able to live out their dreams as the Appalachia’s premiere bartender, first starting their brewing journey by attending the Vault-Tec University. Taking your acquired skills to the next level, by taking advantage of the new Brewing Station. Using this workbench which you can learn to construct from the “Wasted on Nukashine” quest, you’ll add the ability to craft beers, cocktails, wines and spirits to your C.A.M.P. Just as you would imagine while they do bring a good temporary buff, there are some side effects which include a mild hangover.
Wines and Spirits
Each type of Wine or Spirit may take different times to completely ferment, their effects will become even more potent the longer you leave them in the fermentation process. Two examples of these effects include, “fresh and “vintage” for Firecrack Whiskey:
- Fresh Effect: Melee attacks will result in self-immolation, which also means damaging both yourself and your attackers.
- Vintage Effect: Not only taking on the same effects as “fresh” but also have the added outcome of setting enemies on fire from your ballistic and melee attacks.
While Beers do require fermentation, they do not have a vintage effect. Served fresh, Hoppy Hunter will aid you in your hunting abilities:
- Fresh Effects: An increase in scope stability and damage against animals, but a reduced VATS accuracy.
If you’re planning on serving a few cocktails you should take note of Tick Blood Tequila Sunrise:
- Effects: While your successful melee attacks have a chance to cause you to gain a disease, there is also a chance that it will refill you hunger meter.
If you’re interested to gain more drinks to add to your bartender list simply return to Biv, the tipple teaching robot to gain two types of new repeatable daily quests. One type of quest will teach you new Brewing and Distilling recipes, while the other will let you try different concoctions with various effects.
Fallout 76 is currently available to play on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The brew crafting system will join Fallout 76 on March 12th. The next update Fasnacht Parade arrives on March 19th, along with the new Survival mode which arrives on March 26th.
