PRIVATE WORLDS, SCRAPBOXES & MORE COME TO FALLOUT 76 WITH FALLOUT 1ST
Ever since Fallout 76 launched, we have consistently worked to improve and evolve the experience based on your feedback. That’s why we’re excited to launch Fallout 1st, a premium membership that offers something players have been asking for since before launch: private worlds for you and select friends. In addition to this huge feature, Fallout 1st also includes a host of exclusive items and membership bonuses, all of which you can find detailed below. And the best part? Fallout 1st is available right now.
WHAT’S INCLUDED WITH FALLOUT 1ST?
The community has been asking for the ability to play in private worlds since before the launch of Fallout 76, and we’re very excited to announce that they are coming to the game with Fallout 1st. If you’re a Fallout 1st member, how you use your private world is completely up to you: Invite up to seven of your friends at a time (eight total people per private world) to join you in taking on the dangers of post-apocalyptic West Virginia, or play completely solo. All gameplay remains the same from Adventure Mode and all characters entering the Fallout 1st private worlds must be existing characters.
Only the owner of a private world is required to be a Fallout 1st member. Head into your private world, open your Social menu once you’re in-game, and start inviting your friends to kick off the party. You can also create a squad outside of your private world and then switch to it to bring everyone along at once. Should the owner of the private world leave, the world will still stay active as long as one other player in the world is a Fallout 1st member.
Private worlds will continue to evolve with new features such as expanded building areas, increased C.A.M.P. budgets and Workshop persistence. We’ve also received a lot of questions about playing Fallout 76 with mods and this, too, is something we’re excited to add to private worlds in the future.
1,650 MONTHLY ATOMS & ATOMIC SHOP SALES
With a Fallout 1st membership, you’ll also receive a monthly bonus of 1,650 Atoms to use in the Atomic Shop on anything you want. Stock up on your favorite Atomic Shop items with the best value for an Atom bundle to date. Time to treat yourself and finally pick up that outfit or icon you’ve been eyeing. You deserve it.
As a Fallout 1st member, you’ll have access to exclusive discounts in the Atomic Shop, so not only are you getting bonus Atoms every month, you’ll get discounts on some sweet items to spend those Atoms on.
As a member of Fallout 1st, you also gain access to your own private Scrapbox. Use the Scrapbox to store all your crafting components so they aren’t taking up space in your Stash Box. The Scrapbox has unlimited storage, so no need to worry about picking and choosing when it comes to hoarding scrap.
Drop the new Survival Tent to quickly set up a forward operating base when you’re roughing it out in the wilderness during your next adventure. The Survival Tent comes complete with a Stash, Sleeping Bag, Scrapbox, Cooking Station, and even an instrument to help you wind down after a day of exploring Appalachia. Once placed, it will also act as a second fast travel point in addition your main C.A.M.P., giving you even more freedom to travel anywhere in the map without spending caps! You’ll be able to deploy your Survival Tent from your Favorites wheel.
(The Survival Tent and Scrapbox can be used in both public and private worlds by Fallout 1st members.)
RANGER ARMOR OUTFIT
Explore in iconic Fallout style with the Ranger Armor Outfit, available for Fallout 1st members.
ICONS & EMOTES PACK
Show off your membership status with a set of unique Fallout 1st player icons and emotes.
(The Ranger Armor Outfit, player icons and emotes must be claimed from the Atomic Shop while your Fallout 1st membership is active. If you cancel your membership after claiming them, you will still have access to them.)
Fallout 1st will be available as a one-month membership, or you can purchase a yearly membership for a 36% discount over the monthly rate as shown on our website. If you cancel your membership or it expires, you’ll still be able to access any Atoms received as well as the resources stored in your Scrapbox. Cancellation will be effective at the end of your then-current membership term.
As with everything we do for Fallout 76, we will continue to listen to feedback and improve the service over the months and years to come, so please keep sending it in!
