West Virginia revealed as stage for massive video game

West Virginia revealed as stage for massive video game

Bethesda showed a lot more about Fallout:76.

Fallout 76 is an online survival RPG inspired by games like Rust and DayZ.

Bethesda's Todd Howard did confirm that the game is playable solo, but also that he wanted to see what Fallout would look like in multiplayer.

'Not hundreds, not thousands of other players-it's the apocalypse, it's not an amusement park, ' Howard quipped.

You can build and craft together, as well as playing music or cooking together in quieter moments, all within your own hand-built relocatable outpost.

The world of Fallout 76 is 4 times bigger than that of Fallout 4 and is split into 6 distinct regions, each one featuring its own mutated wildlife and architecture as well as quests. Considering the multiplayer aspects of Fallout 76 are clearly going to be a big deal, it makes sense for the game to include this feature, and hopefully, it will prove useful to the players. Then, images of the Capitol building, Woodburn Hall at West Virginia University, The Greenbrier, the New River Gorge Bridge and even Mothman appeared in the preview for "Fallout 76".

There was no news on how much the Power Armor Edition will cost, but it will be available on November 14. In Fallout 76, players will be able to build forts using the C.A.M.P. system (Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform), making a home base to protect them from A.I. enemies and other players.

Also included are a map of the Fallout 76 world that glows in the dark and 24 plastic figurines with designs based on the game's 3D models.

You choices will still matter like any good Bethesda experience.

This is unlikely in Fallout 76 as the world is shared between players and could lead to unfair advantages for those who can mod the game. Prior to it selling out, you could pre-order a copy of the Power Armor Edition on sites like Amazon for a cool $199. It appeared to be standard single player Fallout, and the option of co-op is very much possible.

Where is Fallout 76 set?

Fallout 76 is "entirely online", Bethesda's Todd Howard tonight confirmed.

Initially released in 2015, Fallout Shelter is now coming to Nintendo Switch and PS4.

Fallout 76 Tricentennial Edition Bonus In-Game Items: Celebrate 300 years of freedom with the all-new Fallout 76 Tricentennial Edition, commemorating the opening of Vault 76.

What did you think of all the new information about Fallout 76? We'll see you in the wasteland.

Fallout 76 is going to more Fallout Online/Elder Scrolls Online than Fallout 5.
