Fallout 76‘s New American Dream trailer teaches us how to survive in the wasteland using our innate propensity to build.
In the next Fallout game, players will rebuild society using the new C.A.M.P. (Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform) tool. This tool will be key in building shelter, cooking apparatus, and even stations to cure injuries and debilitations. Resources needed to craft these structures will be scavenged from the open world, or traded for between fellow survivors.
Should misfortune befall your beloved settlement, the C.A.M.P. tool allows players to pick the settlement up and move it to a more hospitable location. Fans can check out the New American Dream trailer for themselves below (via GamersPrey).
For a better understanding of the C.A.M.P. system, Xbox’s Major Nelson had Bethesda’s Pete Hines break it down for us even further at Gamescom 2018.
“The idea of the C.A.M.P. is it’s a way to build settlements, you have much more freedom in terms of where you can put it, but it’s movable,” Hines said. “Any time you set one down and then are like, ‘You know what, I wanna move my camp here,’ it’ll cost you some caps, but you can take your camp and move it to anywhere you want.”
“This time around, because the game is online and every other character is another player, you can do that building with other folks. It’s not just you building in your settlement, you can have other folks building around you. It is a theme of the game—the whole idea of Vault 76 was the folks who were going to rebuild the world—but you can do as much or as little of that as you want.”
Should a valuable structure get destroyed, players can simply stamp down another one using Blueprints. The Blueprint function, along with many other progression and player-to-player interaction systems, were detailed during the recent QuakeCon 2018.
Fallout 76 is slated to launch November 14th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with a multiplayer beta dropping sometime in October.
