Fallout 76 is giving players the chance to experience the game in different ways with Fallout Worlds. It’s going to offer two new game modes: Public Worlds and Custom Worlds. However, this isn’t yet live and is only available in the Public Test Server at the time of writing.

Public Worlds

For Public Worlds, players get to try a pre-selected group of Fallout Worlds settings enabled, one that fits a theme. For the PTS, here are the themes that players can expect:

  • Happy Builder
    • No C.A.M.P. placement restrictions.
    • Relaxed building restrictions.
    • All Map locations discovered.
    • PvP has been disabled.
  • Dweller Must Die
    • Reduced damage dealt by players.
    • Increased damage received.
    • Greatly increased enemy difficulty.
    • “Dark Bog” weather effects.
  • Butcher’s Delight
    • Infinite ammo.
    • No AP costs from combat.
    • Enhanced dismemberment.
  • Quantum World
    • Max jump height.
    • No fall damage.
    • Nuked creatures and flora.
    • “Quantum Storm” weather.
  • High Risk
    • No Fast Travel.
    • Always-on PVP.
    • Players drop additional loot on death.

Take note that only one Public World will be available to all players at a time. But themes do rotate every week while in the PTS. Once it goes live, the rotation is done every month.

Custom Worlds

Unlike Public Worlds, Custom Worlds is available for those with Fallout 1st memberships. In this one, players can make a new type of Private World and then apply some changes to the settings to create an Appalachia they want.

For those not yet ready to create their own worlds, there are customization settings available. These are:

  • Workshop
    • Build on previously restricted areas.
    • Disable the need for electricity.
    • Increase the C.A.M.P. budget and build height.
    • Relax building restrictions.
    • Disable item collision.
  • Combat
    • Infinite enemy spawns.
    • Alter PvP rules.
    • Adjust enemy difficulty.
    • Get infinite ammo.
    • Change item durability.
  • General
    • Disable Fast Travel or make it free.
    • Choose special weather effects like Radstorms and Nuke Zones.
    • Get new weather effects like Quantum Storm and Dark Bog.
    • Add filters for a unique view of Appalachia
    • Adjust jump height, fall damage, or the consequences of death.

For those who don’t have an active Fallout 1st membership, there’s still a chance to play this mode. This is possible as long as at least one in the group has that membership.

What do you think? Excited about this one?
