Fallout 76 Abandons the Nuclear Winter Battle Royale Mode

Bethesda has announced that the Nuclear Winter battle royale mode for Fallout 76 will cease to exist at the end of September. At the same time, the developers announced that they are looking for an alternative way to deliver PvP experience.

During 2019's E3, Bethesda announced that a battle royale mode called Nuclear Winter would be coming to Fallout 76. Today, 2 years later, during the same event it was announced that this gameplay mode will cease to exist at the end of September.

The information was provided in an entry announcing the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase. The reason given was the low popularity of Nuclear Winter. As a result, there was a problem with excessive waiting times to enter the game. Another thing that turned out to be troublesome for the devs was the parallel development of adventure mode and battle royale.

At the same time, the devs announced that they intend to develop PvP battles. New content is planned to compensate for the removal of Nuclear Winter mode. However, no details related to this novelty were provided. It is possible that we will get to know them during Sunday's Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase.

Fallout 76 launched on November 15, 2018, and was coldly received by the industry media. The average rating of the PC version on Metacritic is 52%. However, the developers have not abandoned the game and are constantly expanding it.
