Bethesda has unveiled Fallout 76’s upcoming PvP mode – and it sounds like a griefer’s paradise.
Survival, which launches in beta form at some point in March, includes the same quests, events and story from what will soon be called Adventure mode, but PvP restrictions will be heavily relaxed.
In Survival mode, all players except your teammates or event groupmates are automatically flagged as hostile toward one another by default. Unlike in standard play, in Survival there are no invitations to PvP. This means you can attack other players without restrictions from the first shot. There’s level scaling in Survival, too, which means new characters have a chance against high-level characters. The idea is players will need to keep their wits about them during every hostile encounter.
