Last week, Bethesda Softworks dropped the announcement trailer for the newest installment in the exceedingly popular Fallout series, Fallout 76. Immediately, gamers across the internet set out to decipher every little bit of information they could about what's in store. Recently, at Bethesda's E3 Showcase in Los Angeles, we got a glimpse of what's to come and we're more excited now than ever for the game's release on November 14th, 2018.
Previous installments in the Fallout series have been set roughly two hundred years after the nuclear apocalypse in various American landscapes. This time around, players will take the reins just 25 years after the bombs destroyed pretty much everything. Much to the delight of John Denver, the game will be set in West Virginia.
Before Bethesda's recent showcase, there was much speculation about the title's gameplay, but now we've got a lot more detail. It's shaping up to be that same RPG experience you love, but now, Fallout is going online.
If you decide to get in on the multiplayer fun, that means that every human character you meet on your post-apocalyptic jaunt will potentially be another player. Befriend them, build a new civilization together, betray them and take all their stuff, raid other player's villages, or hijack a nuclear warhead and destroy something someone spent hours making because you've stopped pretending you're anything but an as*hole — the sky's the limit!
Even the tiny details in the game are going to be amazing. The map of the game is said to be four times bigger than Fallout 4's 111km² map, making it the sixth largest world in gaming.
With all-new graphics, lighting and landscape technology we're bringing to life the largest, most dynamic world ever created in the Fallout universe.
