It looks like Fallout 76 is finally getting one of its most requested features

What you need to know

  • What do Diablo 4, World of Warcraft, and Sea of Thieves have in common? Well, a fair few things really. But the answer was pets. 
  • You can tame creatures in Fallout 76, but they’re not permanent, and can be inadvertently killed by all sorts of random things. 
  • A recent datamine by SugarBombsRADS has discovered that Bethesda’s more robust pet acquisition system is nearing completion. 
  • Bethesda also teased allowing players to set up their very own trading caravan companies, too. 

Back in 2021, Bethesda and the team behind Fallout 76 teased a feature that has since largely been left by the wayside. Now, it seems that feature is making a comeback, and players will finally get some new companions for their wasteland adventures.

Fallout 76 is a multiplayer survival action RPG based on the popular Fallout franchise. A prequel of sorts, Fallout 76 showcases some of the earlier days of the nuclear apocalypse, with dwellers from Vault 76 emerging to an Appalachian wasteland beset by roaming mutants, psychotic raiders, and desperate survivors. The game was notoriously maligned at launch for its lack of polish, but it has found new life again after years of rigorous updates and improvements, buoyed by the excellent Fallout TV show. 

Fallout 76 recently picked up a major map expansion dubbed Skyline Valley, which introduced a range of new features, new story quests, boss battles, gear, and much more. But Bethesda and its Fallout 76 team is by no means finished there.

Discovered by dataminer and Fallout 76 reporter SugarBombsRADS in the Fallout 76 Datamining Discord community, it seems that Bethesda’s long-awaited revamped companion system might be nearing completion. The system was teased initially with its 2021 roadmap, with many of those promised features being largely AWOL since their announcement. The pandemic doubtless played a role in their delay, but with Fallout 76 getting renewed interest and funding after its resurgence this year, it seems many of those features are now back on the menu.
