We knew that Fallout 76 was going to feature PvP combat, as players group up online to launch nuclear missiles against one another. But now, thanks to a blog post by Bethesda, we have a clear image of one particular PvP mode, called 'Hunter/Hunted.'
"Once at least four players have joined the Hunter/Hunted Radio queue, participants will each be assigned another specific Hunter to track and assassinate," reads the blog post section on the new mode from Bethesda. "You are then free to seek and destroy your prey in a large area, with a one-hour time limit. Don’t get too cocky, however, because your own assassin may be hiding around the next bend, and your target may decide fight back."
This new Hunter/Hunted mode for Fallout 76 definitely has traits of a Battle Royale game: it features a closing circle on a map, and a free-for-all among players. It does however put new twists on the established formaula, as each player is only trying to kill one other player on the map, before moving on to assassinate another target.
The Fallout 76 Beta is set to go live on Xbox One later today, but Bethesda has warned players to expect "spectacular bugs." If you want a full list of all the global start times for the limited beta, head over to our Fallout 76 Beta guide.
