Bethesda’s online multiplayer Fallout is expanding again, this time with more play-space for lower tier players, and a second season.
Back to the Wasteland
Not that Appalachia looks much like a wasteland, but you get the drift. And it’s a fitting gone I think, since a trip back to Fallout 76’s world just got even more appealing.
Bethesda has announced the arrival of Season 2, as well as a whole bunch of additional content for the game. That includes access to more of the world for those lower tier players, New perks, and Daily Ops.
Here’s the detail on what’s new:
One Wasteland levels the playing field for all players in the form of rebalanced combat and rewards. Now, players of all levels can team up and jump to anywhere in Appalachia and always have a balanced combat experience and receive level-appropriate rewards. The entirety of Appalachia is now open to lower-level players, while veteran players can return to previously low-level areas and experience a fresh challenge.Bethesda press release
Season 2: Armor Ace
Season 2 also kicks off with Patch 22 and features a new S.C.O.R.E. board and all-new rewards. In Season 2, players will join the true American champion, Armor Ace, and his patriotic Power Patrol on their march to freedom across the globe to defeat the Subjugator! As with The Legendary Run, Armor Ace will be free for all players to participate in and include 100 obtainable ranks with all-new rewards including:Bethesda press release
- Greenhouse wall and ceiling set
- Subjugator Outfit
- Unique Power Patrol set of power Armor
- Much more!
Beginning at level 50, players can now unlock Legendary Perk slots. Each Legendary Perk has four ranks that are unlocked by scrapping unwanted Perk cards. Check out some of the Legendary Perks included in the update:
- Brawling Chemist – Automatically generate a powerful combat enhancing chem at regular intervals
- Collateral Damage – Enemies killed with a melee weapon have a chance to explode
- Reboot – Chance to auto-revive with full health if you die in Power Armor
Players can get even more out of their dungeon runs with Daily Ops, a new system that adds replayability to dungeons. Daily Ops allow players to hop into one of Appalachia’s dungeons and fight challenging waves of randomized enemies while completing a series of objectives. In addition to randomized enemies and objectives, the foes faced will also have their own unique twists. A new Enemy Mutation system gives every enemy a “superpower” that forces players to adjust their strategy and tactics on the fly.Bethesda press release
