Have pity on Wooby, the final non-vault-dwelling human in Fallout 76‘s West Virginia. Robbed of a voice, his solely purpose to exist – as hinted at by the long-standing trope of comparable title – is to endure, in all probability as a goal for weapons testing. As reported by Eurogamer, Wooby exists in a sealed off little void packed to the brim with weapons and objects, a few of which aren’t technically meant to be out there but within the beleaguered pseudo-MMO. Some gamers have managed to weasel their manner into this forbidden land, however Bethesda would relatively folks not meet Wooby. I used to be fortunate to snap the image above earlier than the YouTube video it’s from disappeared into the ether.
As Eurogamer be aware, this developer room has technically been identified of for some time now, with particulars quietly circulated on Reddit and participant Discord channels. It’s in all probability finest to not delve into it, nonetheless. Those who dig into the forbidden treasure trove are actually discovering their accounts suspended, with the one path again to West Virginia being to expose their secrets and techniques to Bethesda buyer assist. The assist staff are kindly providing the possibility to strip characters of their clearly corrupted gear and return them to the world solely after receiving a signed confession and an in depth description of how they received in.
Another copy of the video discovered on YouTube, though it could disappear at any second. Appending the clip with a trailer for The Outer Worlds is an very sassy transfer, I admit.
According to Eurogamer, gamers try to capitalise on no matter illicit back-roads they’ve solid into this most secretive of vaults. Players have been utilizing characters on expendable accounts to smuggle out gear and move them on to different gamers within the hopes that their accomplices received’t be noticed by Bethesda. While not a full MMO, it’s comprehensible that Bethesda would need to put a cease to anybody smuggling successfully limitless top-tier gear out of the developer room. Or perhaps they’re simply defending Wooby – he in all probability suffered sufficient throughout growth.
My take is that we should always let sleeping Woobies lie. Give him his eternity in limbo, uncharred by lasers and unchewed by Deathclaws. Go play Fallout: New California – a full game’s value of latest talking-NPC-filled story for New Vegas – as a substitute. Or if you happen to’re insistent on exploring digital Appalachia, Dave Irwin’s guides to Fallout 76 may help. No hints on the right way to get to Wooby, although.
