No more BR mode for Fallout 76

Some news from Bethesda before their E3 showcase with Xbox this weekend is that they will be bringing the Fallout 76 battle royale mode “Nuclear Winter” to an end this September. 

“When we first introduced Nuclear Winter, we were thrilled to watch so many players from our community, as well as many newcomers, dive head first into our take on the ruthless last-player-standing Battle Royale genre. Over time, however, we’ve seen the vast majority of players prefer to explore other aspects of the game. It has also become tougher to put full Nuclear Winter lobbies together without also making sacrifices on match wait times.

If you have played the BR mode at all (even one match) Bethesda will compensate you with perk coins that can be used in adventure mode. At this point, it seems you will receive 6 coins per Overseer rank achieved up to a maximum of 600 as well as 1 perk coin for each Overseer ticket earned, up to a max of 200. Everyone who completed at least one match will also get a Nuclear Winter themed Pennant for their C.A.M.P.s.

PvP for Fallout 76 is not dead yet though, with Bethesda planning to announce news around it later this year. The game is currently free-to-play this week as an E3 celebration so if you haven’t had a go at Fallout 76 at all, maybe now is the time to try.
