In a teaser on the 2023 Xbox Video games Showcase, Bethesda revealed that Fallout 76’s subsequent Expedition will take vault dwellers on a trip to the Atlantic Metropolis boardwalk. Bethesda solely confirmed off a small slice of what Atlantic Metropolis has in retailer as a part of a commemorative video celebrating Fallout 76 crossing the 15 million participant mark, a determine probably helped a terrific deal by the game’s addition to Xbox and PC Game Cross.
Atlantic Metropolis can be confined to the Expeditions game mode, repeatable PvE missions that see squads of 4 enterprise outdoors the game correct’s ruined Appalachia. The screenshots launched by Bethesda tease a dilapidated boardwalk & bustling on line casino ground, although Atlantic Metropolis’s confinement to the Expeditions mode implies that options like on line casino & card video games a la Fallout New Vegas are unlikely.
It is all very “Now we have New Vegas at dwelling”, with Atlantic Metropolis wanting content material to tug double obligation as Submit Apocalyptic America’s runner-up playing vacation spot. This and Season 13’s Golden Age of Hollywood aesthetic each appear to be fishing for a few of that traditional West Coast nostalgia. I additionally could not assist however discover how the panning on line casino shots within the trailer show that the gamblers nonetheless use the previous “sitting at slot machine with fingers folded in lap” animation from 13 years in the past. Some issues, similar to struggle, by no means change.
There is not any launch date but for Atlantic Metropolis, only a generalized “coming quickly.” The primary Expedition, “Metal Reign,” dropped shortly after its announcement in the summertime of 2021, however “The Pitt” did not arrive till September of 2022—I would be shocked if we see Atlantic Metropolis earlier than Starfield’s launch in September, and even by the top of the yr.
Season 13 can also be launching with a werewolf themed public occasion, “As soon as in a Blue Moon”, which remixes some day by day ops and encompasses a new quest with the tantalizing promise of “new cryptids”. Presumably you can be requested to homicide these noble creatures and be rewarded with their pores and skin to adorn your in-game avatar.
It is good to see that Fallout 76 continues to be going to see help at the same time as Bethesda is counting all the way down to the Starfield lift-off. Fallout 76 is presently nonetheless accessible on PC Game Cross when you’re focused on dipping your toes in.
