Fallout 76 Beta Mods Are Already Available

Bethesda's upcoming online RPG Fallout 76 has been the centre of attention in the gaming media for the past few days and for all the wrong reasons.

Markelle Fultz, the first overall pick by the 76ers during this year's draft, is a young point/shooter guard who just started playing in the National Basketball Association last year. As a matter of fact, Bethesda recently acknowledged that some players' claims regarding the PC version's susceptibility to hacking are valid, and confirmed that it plans to fix these issues. Each video is short and humorous, mostly due to the Vault Boy costume falling over. Many media and players have one thing in common, and that is the belief that modding in Fallout 76 could hurt the game and put it into oblivion. The studio also reaffirmed plans to support legitimate Fallout 76 modding "down the road".

The Fallout 76 Beta got a patch yesterday, fixing some of the more pressing problems in the game.

More developers seem to be open to the idea of cross-play so maybe it's possible with the next generation of consoles we'll see this as more of a normal thing. For instance, the post mentioned the game lacks server checks to verify models and file integrity, and also has unencrypted client to client communication.

"Many of the claims in the thread are either inaccurate or based on incorrect assumptions". "Our goal is always to deliver a great experience for all our players". It's not like anybody makes a game and goes, well this is going to make it for 10 years if we're lucky. "Cheating or hacking will not be tolerated". In a single-player game this isn't an issue, but in a multiplayer format this can give players the ability to essentially "speed hack" by unlocking their framerate - something which is relatively easy to do on PC.

Additionally, we'd love to hear about your experiences with Fallout 76 as you participate in B.E.T.A. testing.
