In his presentation, Howard described the setup of the game, a prequel to all of the other "Fallout" games, as characters will be emerging from an underground bunker, Vault 76, which has been built (like WV's own Greenbrier Bunker) to survive a nuclear holocaust.
Fallout from the announced release of the "Fallout 76" West Virginia-based video game is driving record traffic to West Virginia Explorer, according to its publisher. Judging by the footage we've seen a lot of the defensive items and building tools from Fallout 4 will be coming back in Fallout 76. Instead of having to pull out the Fallout 76 disc from a case or sleeve every time you want to play, you'll be able to jump right in once your console boots up. However, it will also feature a strong emphasis on multiplayer, with the player's fellow vault-dwellers each being a real person. It looks like it is going to be the best Fallout game made.
Describing the game as "softcore survival", Howard went on to explain that 76 will have a bigger focus on survival aspects, with multiplayer involving "dozens" of other people. At E3 2018, Todd Howard announced a Collector's Edition of Fallout 76 called "Power Armor Edition". You can join your friends at any time, and all your current progression is taken with you when you do.
Despite the fact that Fallout 76 is an online game, it is still a Fallout game. In terms of audience size, it's the most popular game from the company ever, more than all the players for all of Bethesda Game Studios' titles combined.
Fallout 76's premise has been divisive, to say the least.
Amazon Offering Free 2-Hour Whole Foods Delivery To Boston Prime Members
Two-hour delivery through the service is free for Prime members, and delivery within one hour is $7.99 on orders of $35 or more. Whole Foods stores faced controversial food shortages just a few months ago.
Bethesda has become well-known for bringing games out not long after their initial announcement.
Fallout 4 will launch on PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 on November 14, 2018, and there will be a B.E.T.A. (BREAK-IT EARLY TEST APPLICATION) phase sometimes later this year. "Play solo or band together as you explore, quest, build and triumph against the wasteland's greatest threats".
With so much interest and excitement surrounding Fallout 76, it's no surprise that pre-orders for the Power Armor Edition have already sold out. The Fallout 76 regular release is on sale for $47.99 on Amazon.
Speaking strictly for myself, I'm uncertain about this iteration of the Fallout universe. Let us know in the comments below! That means that the beta testing will need to happen soon if they want to be ready, so gamers will be able to experience the world much sooner than probably expected. The game will be entirely online (a new venture for Bethesda and Fallout).
