Fallout 76 Announced With a Teaser Trailer, More to Come at E3


The activity got fans of Fallout very excited, very quickly, as gamers debated what the potential announcement could be.

A politician on the trailer's old tube TV intones gravely: "When the fighting has stopped and the fallout has settled, you must rebuild". The game is apparently being "Developed by BGS [Bethesda Game Studios] in both Maryland and Austin (formerly Battlecry)".

Although details on Fallout 76 are still scarce, from what we can gather, it seems this game will fall into a different genre altogether. As this is nearly certainly not a main series Fallout game I suspect probably see something smaller in scale, fairly complete and ready to play. Based on the Fallout wiki, Vault 76 is one of the 17 control Vaults used as a baseline to compare to experimental vaults.

Bethesda started teasing a brand new Fallout game just yesterday, and now they've taken it a step further by revealing the name to us via a brand new teaser trailer, introducing us to what they call Fallout 76. There's also rumors floating around that Fallout 76 might be an online multiplayer game so we will have to wait and see.

Vault 76 is located in Virginia meaning we'll be in a new location for this game, provided the entirety of the game isn't spent in a vault.

Of course, Golden State rediscovered its form, flying past the Rockets for a 115-86 blowout victory to even the series at 3-3. I also expect CP3 to play, as he's too much of a competitor to sit out a game seven with a finals berth on the line.

Another Fallout game needs your help. On the other hand, the Fallout series has never steered me wrong before, and I'd be lying if I said I weren't curious to see how this thing works.

Vault 76 is one of the Vault-Tec vaults shown on the computer in the Citadel. To begin with, in the teaser video, we're exposed to what appears to be the aftermath of a "Reclamation Day" celebration of some kind. This would mark Fallout 76 as a prequel to even the first game which was set in the year 2161.

Update: According to Kotaku's Jason Schreier, the game will reportedly feature online elements and won't be strictly a single player RPG.

While we won't know anything for sure about Fallout 76 until the Bethesda panel at E3 next week, we can speculate until the cows come home. Kotaku reports that it's "an online game of some sort", but there's no official information just yet.
