Fallout 76 Developer Room filled with unreleased goodies, nearly all content, game's sole NPC

Man this is Cyberpunk level of corporate corruption/fascism, banning customers for entering a virtual room inside a game they bought, LOL.

GAAS was a mistake, so was Bethesda buying Fallout, I could only imagine how different things would've been if the franchise remained with Obsidian, oh well.

I’m starting to believe that Fallout 76 isn’t actually a game but a comprehensive guide on what future developers should never do in regards to a release.

Content, programming, PR, everything you shouldn’t do is right here!

Lmao! I love that email!

"We have no idea how you people are doing this, so tell us, or this account will be permanently suspended. Thanks!"
As Jim Sterling said: The game that keeps on taking.

Fallout 76: Corrupion.

This game is impressive for all the wrong reasons.
This is my favorite game I've never played. Every new piece of news is an adventure.
Exactly.

It's like Bethesda is actively and purposefully partaking in the parody of their game at this point. With as much praise and reverence their company still gets and has with people that defend them I just can't believe they are this tone-deaf and incompetent.

I really don't see what's wrong with Bethesda trying to stop people from accessing features that could make the multiplayer experience unbalanced, but apparently this is actually called a "dystopian hostage taking" action.

Edit: also, it's fascist? Lol.

In this case Bethsada is banning people who access the dev room and asking them how they accessed it, instead of patching out the room itself from the game entirely.

But what if these characters are actually being corrupted? If Bethesda let them loose they could infect other players, enemy NPCs, and pretty soon the whole game world would be like a dark corrupted bizarro universe. The only choice left would be to quarantine Bethesda Game Studios like the radioactive zone in Stalker lest the inexorable corruption spread into global defense systems and the inter-planetary cybernet neural-network matrix.

So basically: "We have no idea how you people are doing stuff in OUR game so you better tell us. OR ELSE..."

I mean incompetent much??

On the other side I shouldn't really be surprised lmao

Pathetic.

I think it's pretty reasonable to suppose there being a good reason for them to proceed this way. And the people who entered the room deserve getting banned anyway, so it's cool that they can be unbanned by cooperating.

Why is accessing an area that, through the fault of the developer, is accessible a bannable offence (unless you’re willing to do their job for them)?

When Fallout 76 was launched, it was an absolute mess but I thought I'd reconsider it again 12 months down the line after some good updates and decent releases.

It looks like now though I'm not sure it isn't worth Bethesda just throwing in the towel on it. This game has such a reputation behind it and Bethesda just continously make it worse.
Who would seriously consider buying it now?

Bethsada are waaaaaaaaay past the point of being given the benefit of the doubt of anything when it comes to Fallout 76.

Heck this room is nothing compared to the damage boosting glitches that let people one shot the endgame boss.

I suppose they created Fallout 76 and are trying to build it up simply to spite people, then?

lol they're saying the character file gets "corrupted" by visiting this place? As if it wasn't a ban, but a technical neccessity to delete it?

I generally don't speculate on the inner workings on a game because you never know what limitations led to what. But that is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. They're probably calling it corrupted in place of saying "you picked up some stuff we didn't intend for you to have and maybe wanted to sell later on".

Well they've been doing an excellent job at that so far. :)

Under normal circumstances I fully agree with you especially given this is an online game, but I also see the futility in some other things as well, like why use cheatengine for invincibility, when the game gives out the invincibility glitch like candy, this is the type of comedy we're watching at the moment where the glitches that anyone can do accidentally are superceding the actual cheats.
