Gamers have been chomping at the bit for a new Fallout game, and when developer Bethesda announced Fallout 76 a few weeks back, excitement started to grow. Expectedly, at this year’s E3 the developer gave players a bit more info on what to expect.
The main points that people wanted to know, is that Fallout 76 will be a FPS survival game, will be multiplayer, and will be online-only. The game will also launch on November 14.
According to the press release:
Bethesda revealed Fallout 76, the online prequel where every surviving human is a real person. Work together, or not, to survive. Under the threat of nuclear annihilation, players will experience the largest, most dynamic world ever created in the legendary Fallout universe.
Reclamation Day, 2102. Twenty-five years after the bombs fall, you and your fellow Vault Dwellers—chosen from the nation’s best and brightest – emerge into post-nuclear America. Play solo or join together as you explore, quest, build, and triumph against the wasteland’s greatest threats.
“We’ve been asked forever to bring multiplayer to one of our worlds,” said Todd Howard, Game Director at Bethesda Game Studios, said in a press statement. “And once we had this idea, we knew it was perfect for Fallout. It’s great to finally share this game and this world with everyone.”
If you pre-order the game, you will also get access to the Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. (Break-It Early Test Application). The B.E.T.A. will begin first for Xbox One players, followed by other platforms. To learn more about the B.E.T.A., visit fallout.com for more details.
Wanting to spend the big bucks, get your hands on the Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition, a premium collector’s edition that includes:
This wearable helmet faithfully replicates the in-game model and comes complete with voice modulator speaker, functioning LED head lamp, and custom V.A.T.S. sound feature.
This physical, fully-colorized 21”x 21” glow-in-the-dark vintage map showcases the six distinct regions of West Virginia complete with irradiated landmarks, towns, and wildlife.
Crafted from in-game 3D models, these detailed miniatures bring Fallout 76’s Vault Dwellers, Power Armored Soldiers, Creatures, and more to life.
