The other night, as I was putting together various GIFs and screenshots for the day, Fallout 76 decided that a fog would fall upon the town.
I'd seen the day night cycle in Fallout 76 before, but it was the first real-time experience I'd had that mirrored the shot in the photo. Wholesale changes in lighting are always a joy to behold. One of my favourite moments from games in the last few years is from Skellige in The Witcher 3, as the light breaks through the branches of trees swaying in the wind.
Fallout 76 doesn't have quite the same fidelity, although the first-person perspective adds a lot more to the experience when that change sets in.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to spending more time just absorbing the world. It feels a lot like an MMO so far, which I'm sure is not what Fallout fans really wanted, but I'm enjoying just wandering around.
What are you playing this weekend?
