While resources might be slim after the apocalypse, and everyone's going to want to get their own share, it's still better for people to band together rather than just fight off anyone and everyone around. In Fallout: New California, players will be heading out into the radioactive wastelands together in search of gear and finishing quests. In this preview, we get a look at how they can help one-another in the process.
From the post:
The sandy beaches of New California don’t attract as many people as they used to. Being covered in piles of radioactive waste will do that. It also means that you’ll be on your own as you wander the wasteland in the New Californiaexpansion for Fallout: The Board Game. Out here, everyone looks out for themselves, free to pursue their own agenda and gain influence however they see fit.
This continues as you play through expanded versions of the four scenarios from the base game and the new Rise of the Master scenario with the twelve map tiles and other components included in thisexpansion. Every so often, though, you’ll come across someone—or something—that doesn’t want to eat you and take your stuff. If this should ever happen, you might even team up with these friendly souls and work together for the common good.
In addition to its other scenarios, New California also gives you the chance to gather a group of survivors and tackle a fully cooperative scenario. Here, what begins as an attempt to aid a small village in the wasteland soon sweeps you into an ever-evolving struggle that will determine the fate of New California. Along the way, you’ll have to coordinate with your fellow survivors to tackle the many challenges that appear down the branching paths you’ll wander.
Strap yourself in as we took a look at the challenges you and your chummy compatriots will face as you try to make the wasteland a better place!
