Bethes­da host­ed their E3 2018 show­case tonight and let the Fall­out 76 infor­ma­tion fly. In Fall­out 76 you play as a Vault Dweller who emerges from the vault for the first time 25 years after the bombs that caused the nuclear mess that is life in the Fall­out world dropped.

Fallout 76 Release Date And New Details

Fall­out 76 takes place in West Vir­ginia, Thanks to the alarm clock shown in the trail­er we know that Fall­out 76 takes place in the year 2102. 25 years after the bombs dropped. The West Vir­ginia map play­ers will be explor­ing and build­ing in is 4x big­ger than the com­mon­wealth fea­tured in Fall­out 4. The mas­sive open world has 6 dif­fer­ent regions to explore.

Fall­out 76 is the first game in the Fall­out series to fea­ture online play. The West Vir­ginia land­scape pro­vides a a dan­ger­ous, mas­sive world that play­ers can build and quest in. You can play solo but Fall­out 76 is real­ly a mul­ti­play­er dri­ven, always online game. The char­ac­ters you come across in Fall­out 76 are real peo­ple. 

Play­ers will be able to build any­where in the world. You are no longer lim­it­ed to only build­ing in set­tle­ment loca­tions like in Fall­out 4. New crea­tures and ene­mies will make this new wilder­ness fright­en­ing and dan­ger­ous. Some of the West Vir­gin­ian folk lore has made it in to Fall­out 76 and brings some crazy new mon­sters.

Acknowl­edg­ing that online games have prob­lems and that Bethes­da’s games might just have a few bugs, Bethes­da’s Todd Howard con­firmed that a Fall­out 76 beta is com­ing. An exact date for the beta was not giv­en as of the time of this writ­ing. 

We love the col­lec­tors edi­tions that Fall­out always brings and this time is now dif­fer­ent. Fall­out 76’s spe­cial edi­tion will include a repli­ca, wear­able pow­er armor hel­met with a ful­ly func­tion­al head­lamp and voice mod­u­la­tor.  A big glow­ing the dark map of West Vir­ginia as seen in Fall­out and some fig­ures also come in this amaz­ing Col­lec­tors edi­tion. No price has been released as of the time of this writ­ing.

Fall­out 76 launch­es on PlaySta­tion 4, Xbox One, and PC on Novem­ber 14 2018
