The B.E.T.A. Sessions are firmly behind us now, but someFallout 76The basics are still crisp and halfway through, and that's just a few days left to multi-platform release. That doesn't mean what we've seen so far is lacking in entertainment or intriguing ideas, and there are numerous concepts that Bethesda brings to the fore, but issues of quality of life, UI and UI disasters, the lack of some essential multiplayer Expectations set inFallout 76for one of the weirdest big budget games to come out recently.

Fallout 76takes place in a region called Appalachia in 2076 and brings many of the familiar gameplay tropes and mechanics from previous entries in the RPG franchise, but completely dispenses with human NPCs. Instead, instanced servers allow up to 24 players to interfere or injure each other on a massive map, with various quests and timed events in a kind of mutated amalgamation of MMORPG, battle royale, base building, RPG and open world sandbox -Games.

The problems remain, however, and while the entire game can be considered very experimental, the upcoming release ofFallout 76does not belong to the early access variants. The completed B.E.T.A. Sessions were apparently intended to test server capacity, but exciting beta testers were confronted with numerous design issues, glitches, and clumsy systems in the live game. In addition to the mistakes, fans try to find out what happensFallout 76The central gameplay loop consists of intentions that are hampered by a series of problems that always end in the launch version.

Hopefully Bethesda will respond quickly to some of these issues, and their continued presence in the community on the subreddit is solid evidence that they are listening carefully. For now, let's look at a few key pain points that should be addressed shortly thereafterFallout 76released next week on November 14th.

The XP of Fallout 76 must be released for kills at the party

The role-playing portion of RPGs is often ignored in other games, theFailThe series has always highlighted the idea of ​​customizing a player's preferences and style. There are no NPCs in thereFallout 76flesh and blood personalities are brought to the fore, right down to fighting preferences. Currently four players can join as a team and share looted corpses and containers together with quest rewards, but neglect a standardized XP share in favor of a strange “one-hit” or “thing” system.

Essentially, this means that in order for players to share Combat XP, they must deal at least one point of damage to a target. This is actually the same way non-teammates share XP, and a dozen players can all damage a single boss mob and reap the XP pool even when traveling alone. However, this is problematic for teams for two main reasons: First, if a teammate is too undervalued, trouble can arise if they hit an opponent once, and higher-level teammates can mistakenly kill opposing mobs before they even get their chance. Second, if a teammate wants to prioritize the strength attribute and go all-in in hand-to-hand combat, they'll have even more trouble destroying enemies in long-range skirmishes.

It is logical to expect that teams that work together frequently will want to fill certain roles. Perhaps a player wants to take the pacifist route, drop helpful stimpaks on hot flights before fleeing, or work on the sidelines repairing active turrets and building barriers. These teammates should be getting the same percentage of XP as their combat-oriented companions, and anything that doesn't live up to this standard will turn most fights into awkward affairs. Teammates yell at each other to confirm that everyone has hit as many enemies as possible before finishing an enemy fight.

It's a longstanding tradition in online gaming that XP should share teammates across the board, and Bethesda needs to weigh that system at least in the game's first patch.

Fallout 76's clumsy menus and Pip-Boy interface need a redesign

We discussed earlierFallout 76Inventory management is suffering, but the game's enigmatic user interface is in dire need of an update. During the last B.E.T.A. In that session, I played with a new teammate and he could barely understand how he came up with certain options. "How can I switch between basic structures?" He asked. When I explained this for some reason, you have to use the directional keys on the keyboard to do it, he laughed.

Also on the PCFallout 76The UI interface is nebulous, with a dizzying range of options, all of which are assigned seemingly random keys. The A and D buttons often navigate left and right through the menus, except when it is necessary to use C and Z or the arrow buttons above. You can use the mouse to select certain menu options, except when you cannot. If you deal with the menu during the encounter, it shouldn't matter in dangerous encounters.

It is difficult to collect all the UI flops to find a holistic ideal, but it does take considerable attention. For example, it's surprisingly easy to outsource created objects or duplicate blueprints and resources instead of retrieving saved versions. Speaking of buildings, most of themFallout 76The UI problems with the user interface stem from the deeply ingrained user interface, which appears to have been designed from the ground up to better accommodate console gamers on controllers, but which in practice never fit together seamlessly for either platform.

It's unclear whether a successful fix will result from offering different control schemes, creating individual presets for the create and exploration modes, or just redesigning the menu navigation from scratch. However, with the current setup, it's too easy to make destructive mistakes and important information and items get lost in the fog.
