Following a 24-hour livestream on Twitch and a handful of teasers in their social media accounts, Bethesda Softworks unveiled their next big game which will be set in Fallout universe.
It’s called Fallout 76, but besides the “oficial game title”, we don’t know much about the game.
The only character shown on screen is a single vault dweller, wearing a blue Vault 76 suit and a Pip-Boy with a date that reads Oct. 27, 2102.
A broadcast in the trailer features an official saying, “When the fighting has stopped and the fallout has settled, you must rebuild.”
The teaser trailer’s musical score is a cover of John Denver’s 1971 hit “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” which could indicate that Fallout 76 takes place in the state of West Virginia.
Kotaku and Polygon have reported that Fallout 76 will feature a multiplayer.
What is Fallout 76’s vault?
Fallout Wiki Nukepedia provides us with some interests facts that might be considered as hints about this Vault 76, which has being mentioned in 2008’s Fallout 3 and again in 2015’s Fallout 4:
The Vault-Tec terminal in the Citadel lists Vault 76 as a “control” vault, with 500 occupants.
The vault was designed to open 20 years after a nuclear war, and was among the seventeen known control vaults, meaning that it was used as a baseline to compare to experimental vaults. It is also mentioned in one of the alien captive recorded logs (no.13) recorded by Giles Wolstencroft, a Vault-Tec official who was abducted while inspecting the vault’s construction site. 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.
Bethesda’s E3 press conference
We expect to hear more about the game at Bethesda’s E3 press conference on June 10th. It’s slated for release on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
