A Fallout 76 player has found a glitch that sends their character into a god-like state where they cannot die – and the player is pleading with Bethesda to put them out of their misery.

Reddit user Brogadyn took to the Fallout subreddit to explain their situation, explaining that no matter what happens, their character will not die.

“My character is currently unkillable, I mean really unkillable,” wrote Brogadyn. “She can even take a nuke blast to the face and be fine. There is literally zero ways she can die even if I wanted her to (which I very much do at this point).”

Brogadyn states that the bug appeared suddenly, and while they refrained from revealing how it happened, believes they could reproduce the state again.

The miserable Fallout player has attempted various methods of killing her character, including allowing their character to get mauled by a group of withered feral ghouls, and even went to the instant kill fissure south of Whitespring in an attempt to end their suffering.

This glitch is seriously affecting Brogadyn’s enjoyment of the game, as the player is currently unable to progress through tasks as the game seems to identify them as a player with no health, but not actually dead.

“What the heck am I supposed to do besides actually starting to make all content in the game trivial?” asked Brogadyn. “I’m really frustrated and I have no idea what I’m supposed to do.

ImgurBrogadyn has tried to kill the character in numerous ways, but nothing has worked.

Brogadyn reached out to Bethesda on Friday, November 16, but failed to receive any communication back until Thursday, November 22. In response to a ticket, Bethesda told the user to check the status effects active on her character, a response that Brogadyn labelled: “a huge kick in the teeth.”

It does appear that the developer will attempt to help Brogadyn with the issue eventually, as a Bethesda employee commented on the post asking for details of the glitch and how it happened.

Fallout 76 has been plagued with issues since the game released on Wednesday, November 14. Bethesda have already released a massive patch to try and fix some of the problems, with more updates likely to come in the near future.

Bethesda Game Studios and Amazon are creating a Fallout TV series based off of the developer’s legendary RPG.

The studio is working with producers at Kilter Films Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, the minds behind HBO’s critically acclaimed series Westworld, Bethesda announced. Amazon has licensed the rights to the Fallout franchise, paving the way for a full series commitment from the entertainment giant.

“Fallout is one of the greatest game series of all time… So we’re incredibly excited to partner with Todd Howard and the rest of the brilliant lunatics at Bethesda to bring this massive, subversive, and darkly funny universe to life with Amazon Studios,” Joy and Nolan said in a joint statement.

Amazon and Westworld creators are teaming up for a Fallout TV show.

Kilter and Amazon have an overall deal that will see them bring multiple shows to the Prime Video service. The Fallout series is reportedly in the development stages.

The world of Fallout and the miniature stories within the main campaigns of the titles give the producers a rich catalogue of lore and characters that could be integrated into series of their own.

“Fallout is an iconic global franchise, with legions of fans worldwide and a rich, deeply compelling storyline that powers it. And Jonah and Lisa are the perfect storytellers to bring this series to life,” Chief Operating Officer and Co-Head of Television at Amazon Studio, Albert Cheng said.

While the announcement confirms that a full show is in the works, Executive Producer at Bethesda Todd Howard has been looking to make a show on Fallout for quite some time.

“Over the last decade, we looked at many ways to bring Fallout to the screen,” Howard said. “But it was clear from the moment I first spoke with Jonah and Lisa a few years ago, that they and the team at Kilter were the ones to do it right.”

The name of the series is currently being referred to only as ‘Fallout,’ though that can change depending on the development of the show.

Details for the upcoming series are scarce as the studio ended their brief announcement teaser with the test pattern that’s been synonymous with the Fallout series that reads: “Please stand by.”
