Fallout 76

Not only does the game offer matchmade PvP for those who want to engage in player versus player combat, but will make it a bit of challenge to attack a player who does not fight back.
  • If you try to attack a player that does not engage, the level of damage will be a lot lower making the task of killing a random player a lot more difficult. Even if they manage to successfully kill that player, a bounty will then be placed on their head.
  • Fallout 76 will release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 14th, 2018 with the B.E.T.A launching on October 23rd 2018 for Xbox One and October 30th for PC/PS4. Pre-orders are already available via Amazon, those who pre-order will have access to the B.E.T.A..
