Wastelanders propels Fallout 76 with addition of NPCs, more activities
With the advent of COVID-19, the postapocalyptic world of Fallout 76 seems much less alien.
As I don a hazmat suit to wander the depopulated landscape of West Virginia to search for essential supplies and deal with unexpected creatures, I get a feeling of deja vu. Only a day before, I was wearing a face mask while scouring the depopulated shopping centers of Northern Virginia for toilet paper and removing a snake from our front steps. The only differences: Fallout features more gunplay — and more available toilet paper.
