BE3 2018 – Fallout 76 Deep Dive

She’s also most likely to call bullshit and get Hashtag in the shit. You can play the game alone, but it will not be quite the same experience as sharing the world with friends.

Watch the official trailer for Fallout 76, arriving worldwide November 14, 2018.

According to Howard, Fallout 76 is a prequel to all the other Fallout games. At Bethesda’s E3 2018 event, it was revealed that you can play the game using the Nintendo Switch Joy-Con as well as the touchscreen. It’s the biggest one yet, and 4 times the size of Fallout 4. But it’s still a very different type of Fallout game, which you may have to think hard about buying into. Not to mention, the game will take place prior to the events of all the existing Fallout games.

“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. Fallout 76 also features brand new graphics, lighting, and landscape technology.

Tonight we learned that players will be one of the few chosen to stay in Vault 76 for twenty-five years waiting for Reclamation Day. It’s “a wide open world with very few rules”.

‘But there is one big difference, with this game, ‘ he added. However, Howard classified Fallout 76 as “softcore” survival, where dying doesn’t mean the loss of your character or progression.

The collector’s edition of Fallout 76 for Sony PS4 and Xbox One are in stock for pre-order at $199.99.

That’s pretty much the core loop – gather resources, build a base, level up, maybe destroy other player’s bases, and survive. The part on rebuilding suggests that Fallout 76 will feature some kind of construction and leadership feature in addition to typical wasteland wandering. You can still play and quest solo, but playing with others will have its advantages. Find other players holding the missing pieces. As the director of Fallout will attest, players can do whatever the hell they want with these silos.

It’ll be interesting to see how fans of the Fallout franchise take to multiplayer gameplay in this universe for the first time. “And you can pack up and move that wherever you want”, said Howard.


Videos of gameplay shows characters shooting down enemies and collecting launch codes that are required to launch a nuclear attack.
