Bethes­da has announced a new Fall­out game and it seems like it is a new type of Fall­out expe­ri­ence. Titled Fall­out 76, this lat­est entry in to the series looks like it is a pre­quel to the oth­er Fall­out games. 

Fallout 76 Has Been Announced, Here Is What We Know + Some Rumors

Fall­out 76 will involve vault 76, this isn’t the first time vault 76 has been men­tioned, both Fall­out 3 and Fall­out 4 ref­er­ence it. You can check out the Fall­out Wikia for more infor­ma­tion on the lore behind vault 76.

Fall­out 76 takes place in the year 2102 (accord­ing to the year dis­played on the Pip­boy in the trail­er), 59 years before the events in Fall­out and 175 years before the event in Fall­out 3. That makes this game set far ear­li­er than any oth­er Fall­out title.

The trail­er fea­tures Recla­ma­tion Day, while what Recla­ma­tion Day is exact­ly is yet to be explained, it looks like it is sup­posed to be the day the vault opens up and the vault dwellers move out in to the world and start rebuild­ing.

No details on what the game play of Fall­out 76 will be like yet, Bethes­da says they will have more infor­ma­tion dur­ing their upcom­ing July 10th E3 show­case. 

Rumors are point­ing to Fall­out 76 being a Rust like sur­vival, build­ing, mul­ti­play­er. While these are rumors for now, Jason Schreier from Kotaku claim they have sources say­ing Fall­out 76 is “Fall­out 76 is in fact an online sur­vival RPG that’s heav­i­ly inspired by games like DayZ and Rust”. You can read more about that at the link pro­vid­ed above.

Bethes­da did con­firm that Fall­out 76 will be avail­able on PC, Playsta­tion 4 and Xbox One, but did not con­firm a release date as of the time of this writ­ing.

I would not mind a mul­ti­play­er Fall­out expe­ri­ence if done prop­er­ly. Ill be keep­ing my eye out for Fall­out 76 dur­ing Bethesda’s E3 show­case. You can watch it live July 10th 2018 at 6:30 pm Pacif­ic time / 9:30 pm East­ern Time on Bethesda’s twitch chan­nel.
