The first trailer of Fallout 76 was revealed today during Microsoft’s E3 presentation. Now, Bethesda has shown off many more details about their upcoming game, including gameplay footage, story details, and even information about the game’s unique online features.
Bethesda director Todd Howard revealed that one of the biggest changes 76 brings to the Fallout franchise is that the game is entirely online. All of the people players meet in-game are other players. Howard emphasized “dozens, not hundreds,” as dedicated servers will prevent the apocalyptic wasteland of Fallout from being overrun by too many players at a time. Despite this, Fallout 76 aims to be a “softcore survival” game, and is incorporating monsters based off of famous cryptids from West Virginia, including the Mothman. Players can also find multiple nuclear test sites to nuke other players.
Fallout 76 comes out November 14 of this year. The Fallout 76 beta, aka the “Break-it Early Test Application,” will be available soon. You can check out the trailers below!
