Fallout 76 is getting some ‘exciting’ new content from the Rust console devs
Fallout 76 has more “exciting” content on the way, but it’s not just coming from Bethesda anymore. Double Eleven, the developer known for its work on the console version of Rust and many other games, announced this week that it is now working with Bethesda to develop content for the online game Fallout. It hasn’t been specified what exactly Double Eleven will be working on, but the word “challenges” has notably been thrown around more than once.
Double Eleven announced in a blog post on the subject that the developer has been talking with Bethesda since 2020. As for the content that has been worked on, it will be “appreciated by this passionate community of fans later in 2022”, the Double Eleven says the team.
“At Double Eleven, we’ve made a name for ourselves working with some of the biggest developers and publishers in the world,” the studio’s blog post said. “We are thrilled to be able to publicly announce that we have recently begun working with Bethesda Game Studios to create new challenges for Fallout 76 players. Since its release in 2018, Fallout 76 has invited players around the world to create a Dweller unique, leave The Vault and explore the many wonders and challenges of The Wasteland of Appalachia.”
While Double Eleven worked with Facepunch Studios on the console version of Rustthe developer is also known for his work on Minecraft Dungeons as well as prison architect. The developer has also worked on LEGO games and several other projects in the past, and Double Eleven CEO Lee Hutchinson said it was “a privilege” to work on a series like the Fallout games.
“It’s a privilege to have the confidence to work on one of the most iconic franchises in gaming history.” Hutchinson said, “The team we’ve assembled to work on Fallout 76 are so passionate about the show, working with Bethesda is a dream come true.”
The work on Fallout 76 is already being seen how the announcement said the team likes to work on the game “so far” with other plans for the future, but again, it hasn’t been clarified yet what are the plans that involve Double Eleven. Not too long ago, it was rumored that Bethesda had plans in place for a five-year roadmap for the game, so it looks like Double Eleven will at least play a part in those plans.
