New 'Fallout 76' Trailer Explains Crafting and Building

The latest trailer for Fallout 76 was just released, and it focuses on crafting and building in the wasteland. While much of this might sound familiar to Fallout 4 fans, there are some interesting changes. Bethesda has taken some different ways to approach crafting in Fallout 76.

Unfortunately, the trailer doesn't show actual gameplay footage. Instead, it describes what players can expect once they start. From the sounds of it, the only major difference in Fallout 76 compared to Fallout 4 is the addition of the C.A.M.P. or "construction and assembly mobile platform."

The C.A.M.P. acts like the main workbenches found at different settlement locations in Fallout 4. Once placed, the immediate area around the C.A.M.P. becomes a space where players can construct shelters, cooking areas and other specific workbenches. These workbenches are like the ones found in Fallout 4: players can craft weapons, armor and meds among other items.

The trailer says players will be able to sell crafted items to others, so if you enjoy crafting, it's likely you'll be able to open up a store and sell goods to the other players on your server. If you earn enough caps or other goods from selling your crafted items, you'll be able to upgrade your home and property to give it that personal touch.

In case you missed it, we also have confirmation that Fallout 76 will not be on Steam. This is because Bethesda feels if the company controls the entire aspect of the game, it will ultimately be a better service for gamers.

"If there's a problem, if there's an issue, it's on us. There's no guessing. There's no, 'oh, well somebody else updated something and now our thing doesn't work and we have to wait to fix it.'" Bethesda VP of Global Marketing Pete Hines said on a live stream at this year's QuakeCon.

Fallout 76 releases for PS4, Xbox One and PC on Nov. 14.
