MKAU Interviews: Fallout 76: Steel Reign – Roundtable (Mark Tucker & Jeff Gardiner)
With the Steel Dawn update for Fallout 76, we were reintroduced to the Brotherhood of Steel as they made their way back into Appalachia, and in turn, saw conflict rear its ugly head amongst their ranks. The quest lines that came with it were a whole lot of fun but ended in a way that left you wanting more, leaving the story feel unfinished. Fortunately, Steel Reign is just around the corner, and being the group’s biggest Bethesda Fanboy, I jumped at the opportunity to interview Jeff Gardiner, the Project Leader, and Mark Tucker, the Design Director on the upcoming release. Moderated by Jonnie Bryant, the Roundtable Interview took place via Microsoft Teams and allowed for Luke Henderson from Maxi-Geek and myself to gather a little extra information on top of what has been released to the public. Luke opened up with a fantastic question for the pair, asking how they have ...
