Fallout 76 Gamescom Trailer Details CAMP Crafting Features | Gaming News
Besides the always-online multiplayer features, one major gameplay feature of Fallout 76 is its crafting system. Building on the ability to scavenge resources and build settlements that was introduced in Fallout 4, Fallout 76 features the Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform (C.A.M.P). During the Inside Xbox Gamescom 2018 event, Bethesda released a new trailer for the crafting gameplay.
The latest Fallout 76 trailer is styled like an educational video and tells fans what they can expect from the crafting features when the game launches later this year. It explains that the C.A.M.P will allow players to put together “much-needed shelter” as well as “the means to satisfy your hunger” and treat infections. Initially, this may look like a dingy mattress, a camp stove and a wooden shack but players can grow this into a huge dwelling that other players will marvel at.
Building up a fortress will take a bit of effort, the video explains. Just like Fallout 4, Fallout 76 will allow players to scavenge for resources. Or, players can pick up materials the “old-fashioned way” by heading into the mine to gather raw materials, before using C.A.M.P to turn them into something spectacular.
Players will then be able to use C.A.M.P to move their bases away from danger, which will hopefully protect them from any mutated creatures. Bethesda previously confirmed that the game would have a photo mode, so if moving the base doesn’t work, at least players will be able to see what their old base looked like should they need to rebuild it.
The new trailer even touches upon Fallout 76‘s player-to-player economy. It notes that players will be able to craft weapons and armor with C.A.M.P before selling it to other players within the game. Bethesda has revealed plenty about the game’s player versus player combat (including the use of nuclear weapons) but this shows that there’s a way to get ahead without waging war.
As informative as the new trailer is, however, there are some more aspects that still need to be clarified. For example, will players be able to set their own prices for the goods they sell? And how much will it cost players (in Caps, the in-game currency), to upgrade and improve the camp, all the way up to a mansion with a neon sign? The Fallout 76 beta begins soon and features the full game, so hopefully that will yield some answers.
Fallout 76 is set to release on November 14, 2018, for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
