Fallout 76 is Confirmed as Online Multiplayer Game

Fallout 76 is Confirmed as Online Multiplayer Game

Information found in earlier "Fallout" games referring to a "Vault 76" located somewhere in Virginia, as well as a certain iconic West Virginian song making its way into the recent teaser, make it pretty clear that Bethesda is eyeing the Mountain State as the setting for the next big iteration of its best-selling game series.

Don't believe me? How to wait in Fallout 4 is still one of the most popular articles on Shacknews in 2018, almost three years after it was originally published. The year is 2102, otherwise known as Reclamation Day, and it's only been 25 years since the bombs fell.

The game takes place in one of the most lovely states in the US.

Fallout 76 will feature building system similar to Fallout 4.

According to Howard, the main crux of the story revolves around a quest given to you by your Overseer. There will be six distinct regions to explore each with their own styles, risks, rewards, and new creatures.

For people who aren't huge fans of playing online, Howard suggested that the online portion of Fallout: 76 is optional. There will be dynamic weather systems that you'll be able to see even from a distance.

If you want, you can even get friendly with other camps and work together to help create a larger foothold in the region. However, Howard classified Fallout 76 as "softcore" survival, where dying doesn't mean the loss of your character or progression. The game will be the first from Bethesda to be online, allowing players to play and interact with others in the game.

Bethesda has built a platform with 100% dedicated servers and there will be a beta to test out this game to make sure that all the kinks are worked out. There is so much about Fallout 76 to get our teeth into that it was hard to narrow down to just 10 items.

In previous games, the VATS would help players hit other monsters and NPCs if they were unable to do so completely unaided by showing different body parts and the percentage chance of the ammunition hitting the targeted area.

On a amusing note, McElroy, who had needled the game's designer Todd Howard recently on social media about targeting West Virginia because of past Polygon press from he and fellow former Polygon writer Griffin McElroy, said he hopes his house survives the "fallout" of the new game that is set to be released this fall.

Bethesda this evening not only revealed that Fallout 4 would be entirely online, but also that Bethesda would host a Fallout 76 Beta later this year to prepare for launch. Supplies are extremely limited so players are encouraged to pre-order through their preferred stores today. The Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition will also include a power armor helmet with some functional bits.
