No sign of a Fallout 76 release date but expect to find out more as part of the full E3 2018 games line-up. While I personally enjoyed Fallout Shelter, I won't be shelling out $60 to build specialty vaults when the season pass of Fallout 4 allows you to do the same time. In Fallout 4, the newsreader in the prologue mentions Vault 76 debuting in 2076 in honor of America's tercentenary when discussing Vault-Tec's plans to expand. As this is nearly certainly not a main series Fallout game I suspect probably see something smaller in scale, fairly complete and ready to play. Set before even the original Fallout-as shown from a clock and calendar in the trailer-Fallout 76 will focus on the efforts of the citizens as they try to survive in an increasingly hostile world 20 years after the nuclear-apocalypse.
Another instalment in that story has been mooted by some, while others have suggested a Switch version or remastering of a previous Fallout game could be the big news planned.
In Fallout 3 it was listed on a Vault-Tec terminal in the Brotherhood of Steel's Citadel.
Fallout 76 is reportedly in development at both Bethesda Game Studios' main office and their new branch in Austin, Texas. According to the Fallout Wiki, Vault 76 is "a "control" vault, with 500 occupants". To begin with, in the teaser video, we're exposed to what appears to be the aftermath of a "Reclamation Day" celebration of some kind. It will be a multi-platform release and launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. That's about all we know, so let's get into some guesswork.
Fallout 76 returns gamers to the post-apocalyptic wasteland of the series.
This year's E3 games expo kicks off in just two weeks, and the company have confirmed that we'll "see more" at the showcase.
