Fallout 76 Release Date

Perhaps than most intriguing part of all this is the ability to steal nuclear launch codes and decimate the encampments of other players. Specifically, he addressed popular concerns in the community regarding the confirmed lack of human NPCs, the potential PvP issues, how the VATS and modding systems will work in the online-only environment.

With friends, you can build up awesome bases and fight against big mutant beasts together. This means you'll never be forced to be the "sidekick" when playing with others. You can play the game alone, but it will not be quite the same experience as sharing the world with friends. He then finishes: "In Vault 76 our future begins". Rather than the 100-player battle royale style some people feared, you will play along with dozens, not hundreds of other former vault-dwellers. That is, if you can survive the radiation that's caused.

In the world of Fallout, the American government and a shady company called Vault-tec, create a series of fallout shelters to protect a selection of citizens from an impending nuclear war.

And probably the best news of the entire Fallout portion of the conference? It also has a much further viewing distance than any previous Fallout game, which is very handy given that it's also by far the biggest.

Todd Howard, the director and executive producer at Fallout's publisher Bethesda, said that Fallout 76 is a prequel to all other games.

This Fallout title will feature new monsters, inspired by the history of its setting, West Virginia.

Bethesda says that a beta will be available before release to allow players to test out the game.

Of course, as the latest game in the franchise it's the most technically impressive.

A Fallout 76 collector's edition was also unveiled, featuring a Fallout 76 world map "that glows in the f***ing dark", plastic figurines to use with the map, and a wearable Power Armour helmet with an operational headlamp and voice modulator. Why anyone wants that sort of thing is beyond us.

Fallout 76 will come out on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 14th.

At the time of this writing, it is unknown whether Fallout 76 will contain any kind of premium emote or microtransactions. The Overseer kindly lets us know that, after an evening of partying the night before, it is finally time to leave the vault.
