E3 2019: Fallout 76 Has A Battle Royale Mode Called "Nuclear Winter," And It Starts Today
I fell into a burning ring of fire.
Fallout 76 is the latest game to jump on the battle royale train. During Bethesda's E3 2019 briefing, the company announced Nuclear Winter, a free, 52-player battle royale mode for the online RPG--and you'll be able to try it out for yourself this week.
"F**k yeah we put a battle royale in Fallout 76," co-studio director Tom Mustain said during the press conference. Nuclear Winter will be available through a "sneak peek" event happening June 10-17. That is also when Fallout 76 will have a free trial available.
Fallout 76's Nuclear Winter is a 52-player battle royale mode in which players will battle until only one remains standing. In true Fallout fashion, it'll also feature nukes. You can check out a dev diary for Fallout 76's Nuclear Winter mode in the video below.
Bethesda shared a ton of other announcements during its E3 2019 press conference. The company also revealed more details about Fallout 76's big Wastelanders expansion, which adds human NPCs, dialogue trees, and a new main quest. Bethesda also revealed Rage 2's Rise of the Ghosts expansion and more. You can catch up on the announcements in our Bethesda E3 press conference liveblog.
