In a blog post Bethesda have shared their plans for Fallout 76 for 2019, this includes future content involving player vending and a new PvP mode.
Fallout 76 To Get Player Vending and New PvP Mode in 2019
The post although short outlined the big plans Bethesda have in store for Fallout 76. A new update will come out later this month, this includes improvements similar to that of the last update that made improvements to the C.A.M.P. mechanics, S.P.E.C.I.A.L. respec and push to talk feature for PC players.
The next updates tease “new quests, weekly in-game events, new Vaults opening, a new PvP mode, Player Vending and much more.” The biggest addition will be player vending, allowing players to put up their items for sale in-game, but Bethesda have yet to share the details of this new economy. Whether players will be able to put their items up for sale for anyone to purchase or whether it will be limited their current server is yet to be outlined.
Fallout 76’s PvP system hasn’t had quite a positive start. However, it looks like Bethesda are ready to refresh the system with talks of a new PvP mode being added. Currently players who wish to engage in PvP must fire a sort of warning shot, if the targeted player does not engage, any attack will do minimal damage, and if they manage to kill their target a bounty will be placed on their head. While this system was put in place to counter griefing, this hasn’t really stopped players from targeting unwilling participants.
The mention of new quests, in-game events and new Vaults means more content. What the vaults will contain is another mystery yet to be revealed.
Fallout 76 is currently available on PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4.
