With the release of a teaser trailer for Fallout 76 a few weeks ago, as well as little snippets of information – it being set before any of the previous Fallout games and only 25 years after the bombs drop – last night’s Bethesda segment at E3 provided a wealth of further information. First up, a new trailer:
Bethesda also provided a host of new images and more details for Fallout 76:
Bethesda Game Studios, the award-winning creators of Skyrim and Fallout 4, welcome you to 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, you’ll experience the largest, most dynamic world ever created in the legendary Fallout universe. Fallout 76 will launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on November 14, 2018.
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 band together as you explore, quest, build and triumph against the wasteland’s greatest threats.
YOU WILL EMERGE
Multiplayer finally comes to the epic open-world RPGs of Bethesda Game Studios. Create your character with the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system and forge your own path in a new and untamed wasteland with hundreds of locations. Whether you journey alone or with friends, a new and unique Fallout adventure awaits.
All-new graphics, lighting and landscape technology brings to life six distinct West Virginia regions. From the forests of Appalachia to the noxious crimson expanses of the Cranberry Bog, each region offers its own risks and rewards. Post-nuclear America has never looked so beautiful!
A NEW AMERICAN DREAM
Use the all-new Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform (C.A.M.P.) to build and craft anywhere in the world. Your C.A.M.P. will provide much-needed shelter, supplies and safety. You can even set up shop to trade goods with other survivors. But beware, not everyone will be quite so neighborly.
THE POWER OF THE ATOM
Go it alone or with fellow survivors to unlock access to the ultimate weapon – Nuclear Missiles. This destruction also creates a high-level zone with rare and valuable resources. Do you protect or unleash the power of the atom? The choice is yours.
Rumoured to be 4 times the size of Fallout 4, are you looking forward to returning to the Wasteland?
