Bethesda hosted their E3 2018 showcase tonight and let the Fallout 76 information fly. In Fallout 76 you play as a Vault Dweller who emerges from the vault for the first time 25 years after the bombs that caused the nuclear mess that is life in the Fallout world dropped.
Fallout 76 takes place in West Virginia, Thanks to the alarm clock shown in the trailer we know that Fallout 76 takes place in the year 2102. 25 years after the bombs dropped. The West Virginia map players will be exploring and building in is 4x bigger than the commonwealth featured in Fallout 4. The massive open world has 6 different regions to explore.
Fallout 76 is the first game in the Fallout series to feature online play. The West Virginia landscape provides a a dangerous, massive world that players can build and quest in. You can play solo but Fallout 76 is really a multiplayer driven, always online game. The characters you come across in Fallout 76 are real people.
Players will be able to build anywhere in the world. You are no longer limited to only building in settlement locations like in Fallout 4. New creatures and enemies will make this new wilderness frightening and dangerous. Some of the West Virginian folk lore has made it in to Fallout 76 and brings some crazy new monsters.
Acknowledging that online games have problems and that Bethesda’s games might just have a few bugs, Bethesda’s Todd Howard confirmed that a Fallout 76 beta is coming. An exact date for the beta was not given as of the time of this writing.
We love the collectors editions that Fallout always brings and this time is now different. Fallout 76’s special edition will include a replica, wearable power armor helmet with a fully functional headlamp and voice modulator. A big glowing the dark map of West Virginia as seen in Fallout and some figures also come in this amazing Collectors edition. No price has been released as of the time of this writing.
