Walking through a Spirit Halloween store earlier in October, there were a number of familiar costumes that caught my eye: Fallout vault dwellers, Rick and Morty get-ups, and a blue wig, befitting of mega-famous streamer, Ellen Degeneres show-visiting Ninja. Little did I know, all these things would later come together in a livestream set for next week.
Next week, Bethesda is hosting a Fallout 76 stream starring Ninja, rapper Logic, and Adult Swim's Rick and Morty. The blog announcing the stream is scarce on details, and we're left with a lot of questions about how it's going to work. Is Rick and Morty creator and voice actor for both characters Justin Roiland going to use hand puppets for them on-stream? Will this be a scripted livestream so that the animation of Rick and Morty can work? It's a total mystery, in addition to the mystery of why Logic gets to join this SEO-driven party. (I'm guessing Drake's not a Fallout fan.)
The stream's happening on Mixer and Twitch at 6pm PT/9pm ET on Thursday, November 8. The stream will be happening from the Xbox One version of Fallout 76. Right now, Fallout 76's beta has been ongoing on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 at designated times for each platform. The next beta times will commence this weekend across all platforms, tomorrow on November 3 at 2pm PT/5pm ET to 6pm PT/9pm ET and at 11am PT/2pm ET to 6pm PT/9pm ET on November 4. It's not long until the full game releases too: Fallout 76 launches on November 14.
