Bethesda is no stranger to the fun and quirky promo items it’s released alongside Fallout games in the past. Back in 2015 the gaming giant launched its Fallout-inspired beer, and now it’s going to be upping its game with Fallout rum!
Silver Screen Bottling Co. recently tweeted: “Happy #NationalRumDay! Best way to celebrate? Preparing for the arrival of Nuka Dark Rum & signing up for our VIP announcement list at NukaDark.com! #NukaDark #Fallout #Fallout76.”

If you’ve forgotten, Nuka Dark (otherwise known as Nuka-Cola Dark) is the in-game beverage with a whopping 35% of alcohol content – definitely more comparable to rum than beer.
Nuka-Cola Dark is supposed to increase your endurance and strength, but the Nuka rum probably isn’t going to help with any of that…

In other Fallout news, it’s been confirmed the game won’t support cross-play.
Speaking to German publication Game Star, Fallout 76’s Game Director Todd Howard confirmed there wouldn’t be cross-play support in place for the game – apparently because Sony was “not as helpful as everyone would like.”
Game Star writes that “Todd Howard is annoyed by Sony’s stalemate attitude,” with him reportedly saying: “We would love to [add cross-play support] but right now that’s not possible.”
At QuakeCon, when talking about the upcoming The Elder Scrolls: Legends, the newest addition to the incredibly successful franchise, Bethesda top dog Pete Hines hinted at some potentially disappointing news for PlayStation gamers.
Hines announced that Legends will have: “both cross-platform play and cross-platform progress,” and was quickly asked by Game Informer whether the cross-play extended to the PlayStation 4.
Hines responded: “It is our intention in order for the game to come out, it has to be those things on any system.
“We cannot have a game that works one way across everywhere else except for on this one thing. The way the game works right now on Apple, Google, Steam, and Bethesda.net, it doesn’t matter where you buy your stuff, if you play it on another platform that stuff is there.”
It’s believed that discussions are still ongoing between the two gaming giants. Hopefully we’ll get Legends on the PS4, but nothing’s set in stone…
As for Fallout, it’s not going to happen.
