‘Fallout 76’ Revealed, May Be A Departure For The Series
The latest installment in the Fallout series is 2015’s Fallout 4, which means an announcement for a new entry was about due. On May 30, Bethesda revealed Fallout 76 through a live stream, though this installment may differ from its predecessors.
FALLOUT 76 ANNOUNCED, MAY BE A DEPARTURE FOR THE SERIES
Fallout 76‘s reveal occurred at the end of a lengthy Twitch stream, ending the stream with a 1:34-minute trailer. Series’ iconography, including Vault Boy, littered the cinematic, confirming fans have a new title to await.
Per Kotaku‘s sources, however, 76 will shake up many of the standard troupes the series is known for. Since Fallout 3, the series has focused on exploring large, open worlds, and the series as a whole is known for providing single-player experiences. 76, however, will instead conform to some of today’s trends; “prototyped as a multiplayer version of Fallout 4 with the goal of envisioning what an online Fallout game might look like,” 76 evolved into a multiplayer-centric game inspired by Rust and DayZ. It will contain a single-player component, however. Additionally, Fallout 4‘s base building will return in 76.
Bethesda’s primary team is reportedly working on 76 alongside the company’s new Austin branch. As E3 is two weeks away, it won’t be long until Bethesda releases more information.
