Fallout 76, the latest and most troubled iteration of the Bethesda Game Studio’s post-apocalyptic role-playing franchise, is adding private worlds. Those interested in playing the game alone, or with a small group of friends, will need to sign up for a $12.99 monthly membership, or buy a full year of the service for $99.99.
Bethesda announced the subscription service, called Fallout 1st, on the official Fallout website.
“If you’re a Fallout 1st member, how you use your private world is completely up to you: Invite up to seven of your friends at a time (eight total people per private world) to join you in taking on the dangers of post-apocalyptic West Virginia, or play completely solo,” the announcement explained. “All gameplay remains the same from Adventure Mode and all characters entering the Fallout 1st private worlds must be existing characters.”
The $12.99 fee also gets you a handful of additional benefits, including a new Scrapbox, which provides unlimited storage for crafting components; a Survival Tent, which adds a new placeable fast travel point on the map; an allowance of 1,650 Atoms, Fallout 76’s premium currency, per month; a special Ranger Armor Outfit, which includes the iconic uniform from Fallout: New Vegas; and a selection of icons and emotes.
