Fallout 76 2020 Roadmap
Today has seen the Fallout team release the Fallout 76 2020 roadmap. Outlining future content coming to Fallout 76 this year. The roadmap gives us an introduction to Seasons as well as major re-balancing of combat and rewards for Dwellers of all levels, C.A.M.P. Shelters, Legendary Perks, plus the start of a yearlong Brotherhood of Steel story arc and a bunch more.
Seasons bring in an account-wide progression system, changing the way players rank and providing new rewards along your wasteland journey.
“Seasons will be available to all players and offer a unified progression path to unlock dozens of new and unique rewards from Power Armor paints and C.A.M.P. items to Atoms, Legendary Scrip, Perk Packs, and so much more.”
Atoms normally rewarded for completing Daily and Weekly Challenges will be replaced with a new currency: S.C.O.R.E. points. These points will advance players in their Seasonal progression and unlocking rewards. The Fallout Team are hoping it will create a more engaging, flexible, and fun experience for all types of players.
Seasons will be subject to change with playtest still being performed this is how the Seasons will currently work:
- Players will see a new option on the Main Menu that will take them to a uniquely Fallout-themed seasonal progression screen. During Season 1, this will be a Captain Cosmos-themed boardgame!
- All players begin at the first space on the board — Rank 1 out of 100. Advancing along the board involves acquiring a new type of currency, S.C.O.R.E., obtainable through the revamped Challenge system and other in-game activities.
- Challenges will be less complicated and easier to complete, typically involving activities players would complete by playing Fallout 76 as they normally would.
- Rewards are handed out at every rank, with bigger rewards the more you advance and at specific milestones (Rank 25, 50, 76, etc).
- Players will have the option to spend 150 Atoms to skip ranks after the first two weeks of a Season. After two weeks, players can move ahead in ranks by spending Atoms as a means for those late to a Season a chance to catch up.
- Seasons will run for 10 weeks with a two-week break between the end of one season the start of the next.
The first Season is set to launch with Patch 20. For more information and details on future Fallout 76 content check out fallout.bethesda.net.
