Fallout 1st Fallout 76 PS4 PlayStation 4

For those of you still playing Fallout 76, there's some news that's sure to receive mixed feelings. Today, Bethesda has introduced Fallout 1st, a premium membership for its online-only shooter that will grant you access to private servers, unlimited storage for crafting items, a monthly supply of Atoms, and much more. The downside is that it's pretty damn pricey.

Before we get into the cost of Fallout 1st, let's go through its contents properly. As mentioned, the oft-requested private servers are included, allowing you to create a world populated only by you and, if you like, up to seven pals. Private servers can be entered by any player, but the creator of the server must be a member of Fallout 1st.

Next up, you have the Scrapbox, an item exclusively for 1st members that effectively gives you unlimited storage space for crafting items. This will help keep your inventories in order, which is a plus. A survival tent is the next bonus; it acts as a second base you can place down anywhere, and you can fast travel to it as well. As a member, you'll also get 1,650 Atoms a month to spend in the Atomic Shop. Finally, Fallout 1st members will earn themselves a special outfit and a bunch of icons and emotes.

There are two options when it comes to how you pay for Fallout 1st. You can either purchase one month for $12.99 / £11.99 (ouch), or you can stump up for the full, 12-month subscription, which will set you back $99.99 / £99.99 (ouch). We're not going to tell you how to spend your money, but you can get Netflix for a monthly fee of just £5.99. Just putting that out there.
