Bethesda has helped a 12-year-old boy with a rare form of cancer fulfil his wish of playing Fallout 76.
Oh c'mon, now you HAVE to put a tribute somewhere to the boy somewhere in the game! <3
there most likely will be... good on developers for doing this
I actually like how a lot of developers are kind enough to fulfill wishes like this.
that would be great if they would, even so, nice of them to think about even something little they can do to lift someones spirits.
Yep I really hope they do this. Such a sad story.
Imagine if they replied to his request with: "Sorry bro!" *Rated T for Teen*
XD He's wandering around the wasteland all by himself. No people for PVP and no NPCs for quests lol But for real I absolutely love reading these stories and seeing companies do these things for fans whether it's seeing a movie months early, or getting to play games months early such as Fallout 76 or also recently Smash. No massive publicity stunt, just good-hearted people doing something very kind.
I'd imagine they(devs) played with him.
*Rated M for EVERYONE*
Always hearing about cancer kids meeting a celebrity, playing some game, or getting to know the end of One Piece but I really wonder if any of them come up with weird wishes like pimping out his hospital room or something.
"..know the end of One Piece" Really? That's really incredible because I would definitely like to know this
Yep a child with cancer was told the ending of one piece whispered to him
No, that was a fake story. But some people still believe it.
If you haven't watched the Batkid Begins documentary about how an entire city coordinated to make this kid become Batman for a day. They had several actors dress up as the old TV show versions of the Batman villains and had this kid solve puzzles and stop crime. It was so amazing to see something that large-scale come together for him.
The story about a child getting the end of One Piece told to him was fake. Can't believe that people still believe it years later.
I think I saw it on here, so I just thought it happened. For all I know a majority of these stories could be made up and doesn't really matter to me if it actually happened or not, still a interesting idea for one of these kids.
Eee... Great, but isn't Fallout 16+ ? Don't get me wrong, I don't give a * about rating, when I was teenager I played everything I wanted and I know that psychological tests show that there is no reason for that kind of censorship, but isn't it a little odd on Bethesda side to do it so officially?
They more than likely got permission from the parents.
Oh, I see. So in US rating is only for parents and if they are ok with the kid playing games that are 16+ or 18+ that is not illegal?
The age ratings on the title ARE NOT censorship. What's up with people's fixation with that word of late?
They are not. But forbidding young people playing violent games is. At least that is how the word works in my language.
Well considering the kid won't live to be that age who is this really hurting. Psych tests etc are also not conclusive and have failed to prove that video games on growing children are solely responsible for acts of violence. Often it's a combination of poor parenting in a toxic environment and violent media and issues making friends.
Awesome, didn't realise they do "make a wish" for the terminally I'll kids and there families.
Thats awesome,I'm glad they did this for the kid and I hope it was everything he hoped for...with that being said,this will be the only Fallout game released in a long time that I have absolutely zero interest in
Wow, you must be important.
"this will be the only Fallout game released in a long time that I have absolutely zero interest in" Well, good job this isn't about you then isn't it.
Utterly tragic, what a brave lad. Kudos to Bethesda for making this gesture, I am sure it will mean a lot to this boy and will bring a lot of comfort to his family to see him happy.
Poor kid, have fun!
This is both uplifting and bitter sweet. I truly feel for kids and the families in situations like these.
didn't we read a very similar title 2 days ago about a cancer boy wanting to play smash bros ultimate ?
A series that’s named after a phenomenon that gives cancer to anyone involved in it gives a someone with cancer a chance to play it How ironically touching
Its really lovely. Cancer is a bitch. Even more so when it happens to young kids. Been to the hospital once where there were a bunch of kids with cnacer playing together. Went home and hug my loves ones so tight. Never take my time for them for granted. Kudos to Beth
Nintendo has recently done the same and it's good to see.
It great to see what happens when people stop thinking about themselves and extend compassion to those in need. As a father, my heart goes out to his family.
That's awesome! You never know how lucky you are, until you know what someone else is going through. My heart goes out to the kid & his family.
I wish terminal cancer wasn't a thing, especially with kids, but it's good to know some companies do great things like this. Good on you Bethesda.
12 year old playing fallout 76? Uhm, this game isn't rated E for everyone. LMAO I swear then you wonder why kids are the way they are in today's time. I mean we have ratings on things for a reason. If the parent decides to expose their kids prematurely that's all on them, but just like the CANCER WARNING on cigarette boxes, it's not here to make the box look better, the same should go for age appropriate content.
What a shitty attempt at trolling lol
"neuroblastoma is a rare type of cancer that mostly affects babies and young children" That's some intelligent design /s
Well Done Bethesda!
"F" Cancer and what it do to a person and their family! "F" You cancer, you rotten pile of Dung!
