Bethesda teases 'Fallout 76' ahead of E3 premiere

Fallout 76

BETHESDAFallout 76- Bethesda reveal new Fallout game and it's not Fallout 5 or New Vegas 2

Unlike the intro to Fallout 3, the teaser to Fallout 76 is set within a pristine, unburned, Deathclaw-free vault.

In the teaser trailer, we're taken into a new relatively well-maintained vault 76.

What do you want to see from Fallout 76?

From what we know so far, the game will be based around Vault 76, which looks to be in the West Virginia area. According to the Fallout Wiki, Vault 76 was a "control" vault that was set to open just 20 years after the end of a nuclear war. At some point during construction, Giles Wolstencroft, Vault-Tec's Assistant Chief Executive Officer, was abducted by extra terrestrials while inspecting the site. It was created to open 20 years after a nuclear war. From the Vault's number, through to a notice that commemorates the dates 1776-2076. In terms of lore, this is the earliest players will have stepped foot into the wasteland so it doesn't sound like there will be many, if any at all, established settlements. With Bethesda initially teasing that a new game was on the way back in March, to a chorus of poo-poo's I suspected that it might have been a new Fallout title. While the short teaser trailer doesn't hint towards the game being online, it's anyone's guess as to what Bethesda has up its sleeve right now.

As many fans will already know, Bethesda's E3 2018 press conference will stream on Twitch on Sunday, June 10. What do you hope to see in the new game? It will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC. "One source cautioned that the gameplay is rapidly changing, like it does in many online "service" games, but that's the core outline". Whether that is just simple co-op or something else entirely remains to be seen. It's a bold claim to make, but Schreier is a seasoned enough games journalist with a clear history of knowing his stuff, so we're including to think there's some truth to his statements.
