Fallout fans can get a taste of what the upcoming Fallout 76 may play like (at its worst), thanks to a recent Fallout 4 mod.

The mod, created by modder SKK50, introduces some of fans’ worst fears about Fallout 76 into Fallout 4, including griefers constantly chasing the player, ceaseless taunting from other “players”, and the incessant dropping of nukes, among other things. Killing the griefers only slows them down for a short time, and trying to run away simply results in new ones finding you. The mod also removes the vast majority of the game’s NPCs, making the world seem empty, as far as post-apocalyptic wastelands go.

These changes make up the core concerns of the fanbase following the game’s reveal, as a result of turning a single-player-focused series entirely multiplayer. A demo of the mod can be seen in the video below, and if the real game is anything like this, it doesn’t look like much fun.

One facet of the mod that is confirmed to be a misrepresentation of Fallout 76 is the frequency of nukes, thankfully. In a recent interview, Bethesda’s Pete Hines explained that nukes are both hard to launch and easy to avoid, but should one hit an area, the blast zone will temporarily host a variety of rare enemies and resources that players will want to fight and fight over.

Fallout 76 is slated to launch November 14th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The pure single-player component may be out on its ass, but fans will not have to leave behind modding in Fallout 76, as its game director recently confirmed.

Fallout 76-inspired Fallout 4 mod paints a dark picture of our future

Let's hope this Fallout 4 mod isn't an omen of things to come.
