Fallout 76's upcoming vault attack is the game's first staged dungeon, Bethesda revealed.
This means that the attack will prevent other players not in your team from interrupting and affecting your mission.
In a Bethesda.net post, the developers discussed Vault 94, which goes live with patch 12 on August 20 on PC. Bethesda said it would soon open the console's vault if attacks on PC vault computers work seamlessly.
Vault 94 offers some of the most challenging experiences in the game, Bethesda warned, and although you can try it on your own, developers recommend assembling a full team of 50+ character levels.
Instance also means Bethesda has better control over the state of the vault, "to ensure that every experience is as fresh as the first time you stepped into Vault 94."
"To sum it up: The raid is only for your team, the meetings are for your team only, and what's inside the vault is only for your team."
So what is Vault 94 about? It is located on the border between Mirata and the Wild Division. It was once the home of a utopian community charged with restoring Earth's natural abundance after the Great War. The vault doors opened one year after the bombs fell. Now the inhabitants have long since disappeared and the vault is overhanging by nature. But there is something nasty in there.
"Appalachian brave explorers will have to face a lot of dangers if they want to save Vault 94, find out what happened to its former residents, and restore the precious resources hidden inside," the official blur says.
To try out in the dungeon, get your team together and tune into the Vault 94 Emergency Radio Station. There are three separate missions inside. One mission is available at any time and lasts one week. Each mission returns every three weeks. The first mission is called Dead in the Water and is available as soon as the vault opens. Meltdown and Washout go live on all platforms on August 27 and September 3, respectively. Expect the vault to be closed for three hours each week when one mission is over and the next is ready to go live.
The missions come in three difficulty modes: beginner, standard or expert. The novice is not accounted for, while the standard and expert have timelines and more challenging meetings. If you run out of time or your team deletes, you have to start over. As you would expect, the harder the regime, the better the loot. If you are performing standard or expert missions, you will get plans that allow you to build new sets of vault bumpers, such as the Strangler Heart kit, pictured above. Complete missions at any difficulty, and you'll gain Vault 94 steel, which is a new resource you need to build arched armor. (Vault mission rewards can be earned once for difficulty mode, for mission, per day.)
