News | Fallout 76 now has wheelchairs as C.A.M.P. decoration

Bethesda added a wheelchair in Fallout 76 as a decoration for the C.A.M.P. after someone with a physical disability asked for it

Gamer Kelly asked the developer on Reddit if it was possible to get a wheelchair in Fallout 76, since she is also in a wheelchair in real life.

She emphasized that she does not mean that she actually wants to move around with a wheelchair in the game, but that she uses it as decoration in her C.A.M.P. would like to use. “I think a lot of other people would like that too, even if they create a hospital, for example.”

A few months after posting the message, the option to place a wheelchair as decoration was added to the game. “Thank you and excuse my tears,” said an emotional Leunen.


News | Fallout 76's Wastelanders postponed for a week

The Wastelanders expansion for Fallout 76 has been postponed for a week, is set to release  on April 14.

The update was already postponed from last year to this year. Bethesda says the cause is now the coronavirus, which is slowing development of the update.

Wastelanders is set a year into the future, bringing new characters to Fallout 76 that are woven into the story missions. Like previous Fallout titles, players get more advanced dialogue options, players can build romantic relationships and a reputation system is in place. Players will therefore have to choose a side between the raiders and settlers.

NPCs are located in enclosed environments in the game, allowing Bethesda to tailor the experience to choices made previously without affecting the experience of other players. Some existing characters also have been rewritten to interact with in a new way and dialogue options.

The Wastelanders update also brings some new weapons and a visual upgrade. In particular, light and reflections should look more realistic. Furthermore, the dialogue system contains fully written out answers, instead of the simplified options from Fallout 4.
