Los Angeles, CA
With Betheseda’s E3 Announcement of the November 2018 release of Fallout 76, an online version of Fallout, which Bethesda’s game director Todd Howard, described as a “shared world” shooter.
For those that don’t know, Fallout is a completely addictive RPG based in the United States several decades after the world was devasted by nuclear war. Each version tells a different story, in a different location, and a different timeline. Your role is to navigate, collect, build, negotiate, survive, and thrive in this new world complete with super-mutants, rogue gangs, free thinking robots, and various monsters.
ATA spoke with several Fallout gamers about their upcoming plans related to the release.
According to Jonathan, an intelligence 10, “I plan on setting up several contingencies to occur from November 14 through the New Year. Over the next few months, I’ll advise my supervisors of multiple made up health issues occurring with me and my family. In addition, I’ll start telling co-workers about minor plumbing and other home related issues. Then on November 14, I’ll have all my contingencies set up, starting with a slab leak which will catalyst to various health and other related issues requiring me to stay home, take time off, or work remotely.”
Eileen, a luck 10 has plans to “Just wing it and miss three weeks of work. I’ll cross my fingers and toes and hope I have a job whenever I decide to return.”
Jesse, a charisma 10, advised ATA that “I do what I want when I want. Are you good with that, you sexy, beast.”
“Can I borrow a smoke.”
“I actually need the entire pack.”
“By the way handsome, I’m late for an appointment, I need to use your car for a few days, could you give me your keys?”
“Uh…you’re going to return it right.”
“Of course, darling. Oh, shit, it looks like the gas is almost empty, could you give me your credit card”
“I guess. Wait, you’re not scamming me, are you?”
“Why of course not, we’re friends aren’t we. Friends don’t take advantage of friends. Especially lookers like you…One more thing…”
