We find out that there is a human NPC in Fallout 76. But visiting it could be banned from your account.
"Wooby", as he is called, is the only inhabitant of a developer-only room that some players have also gained access to, potentially for the last few weeks. Yesterday's Eurogamer reported on the room, Wooby and the prohibition notices some players are coming as it seems that Bethesda is trying to contain the spread of large-scale items coming from that position.
The fact Fallout 76 has a secret room furnished with high-level articles is not a surprise. They were found in Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim and are generally accessible on PC with console commands. The online multiplayer nature of Fallout 76 however, makes it clear that players could break into this room, apparently without using console commands.
Fallout 76 has had problems from the launch with duping exploits and other misbehavior surpluses of large-scale objects in the gameplay world. Bethesda Game Studios has tried to contain the spread with patches, but the access to Wooby's room is an escalation of this type of threat. Eurogamer reports that players who access the room are automatically suspending their accounts.
They receive an email from Bethesda, reprinted on Eurogamer, which discretely accuses the cheating player and asks them to respond by explaining how they have visited the forbidden room. Otherwise, the account remains suspended. If they do, Bethesda says it will "conduct an investigation to make a final decision on the status of this account".
A development room like this is simply a space in the world where most, if not all, of the inventory of the game can be found and presumably tested. "Wooby" is not a person with dialogues or missions to give ̵
However, that object cache is not just limited to high-level loot. Others have found unpublished coatings, (which also the Eurogamer has found). This irritated the subreddits of the game, where the advertising of unpublished articles for the trade was forbidden, and discussing or asking for directions on how to enter the room is seriously disapproved.
Wooby, his obvious state of proof, does not necessarily lead to human NPCs for Fallout 76 at any time. But surely this game can implement them, so it's another reminder of what is simply a design restriction that has created a story that many Fallout fans have found rote and lifeless.
