For a while now we’ve known that Fallout Wasteland
Warfare will make use of Caps as a form of in-game currency that can be used to purchase a number of different things that will have an impact on the game. To quote Chris Birch, they will be used to buy, “equipment and weapon upgrades, consumables, settlement resources (which provide bonuses during your game) and more.”
Speaking in the Official Modiphius Entertainment Forums for Fallout Wasteland Warfare, Chris has clarified how this will work and yes, we were correct all along.
This clarification reads, “Each figure will cost x caps, new gear will cost caps, upgrades to your settlement for campaign plan will cost x caps and s on. Game ‘experience’ will most likely come in the form of caps – with some limitations on spending.”
He then goes on to talk about how your Caps expenditure can affect your gameplay. He said, “You’ll have a total caps total for your campaign game which can can spend on setting up your base if you’re playing a defence game. Maybe you’ll split it between units, turrets, cover, resources etc? At the end of the game you’ll gain some more caps based on the objectives, and if you lose you still have the same points total so you can try a different strategy next time.”
That’s all for now Wastelanders. If this develops, I’ll be sure to keep you updated.
