Fans of Fallout 76 can now get a closer look at how the game's Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform (C.A.M.P.) tool works in the latest trailer. Much like 2015's Fallout 4, construction will be a big part of the game, so players had better get to grips with how to use C.A.M.P. mechanics ahead of time.
Breaking with Fallout tradition, Fallout 76 will be the franchise's first MMO since launching. With a supersized map four times bigger than Fallout 4, it could get lonely out there in Wasteland if not for the ability to buddy-up and try to reclaim the land with friends. Todd Howard already gave a tease of how building will work at Bethesda's massive E3 presentation, but the C.A.M.P. trailer goes into greater detail.
According to the trailer, the C.A.M.P. will be an invaluable piece of tech in the scorched wasteland of the apocalypse. Going hand-in-hand with Fallout 76's launch, the C.A.M.P. will terraform that toxic sludge into a sustainable patch of land to set up shop. It is then up to players and their imagination with the portable device to craft a perfect little homestead alongside the other players. As the clip reminds players, it's up to "YOU" to rebuild the American Dream.
It isn't all remodeling and making things look pretty, though, and as the trailer reminds gamers, the monstrous mutants like the Scorchbeast could turn up at any moment to destroy everyone's hard work. As well as taking selfies alongside those newly defeated monsters, the clip also teases the threat of nuclear war. Again emphasizing Fallout 76's team spirit vibe, players can work together to acquire nuclear launch codes and send their own rocket raining down on an enemy camp.
While Bethesda has promised to clamp down on cyberbullying within Fallout 76, it still doesn't mean that other groups of scavenging players won't still be a nuisance. Although the C.A.M.P. may help turn a dwelling into a stronghold, expect attacks to still happen regularly. With developers also doing away with NPCs for an almost totally multiplayer experience, it won't be long before rival teams are going up against each other to test how effective other players are with their C.A.M.P. skills.
Things may look a little rustic out there in the Wasteland, but with Fallout 76 set 200 years before the events of Fallout 4, things are obviously going to be a little more primitive. The C.A.M.P. is the developers' update to the Garden of Eden Creation Kit (G.E.C.K.) that appeared in Fallout 2 and Fallout 3, which also promises to be an invaluable piece of it. Ahead of Fallout 76's beta phase and full release in November, Bethesda is continuing to ramp up its marketing campaign through a series of Vault-Tec videos.
