Bethesda Announces Fallout 76 With a Trailer Full of Clues

Bethesda Teases ‘Fallout’ News With Hours Long Livestream

With so much focus on the settlement system in Fallout 4, building and managing outposts basically felt like its own game within the game.

A quick check of the video shows the Fallout 76's Vault 76 imagery. The company has posted a photo related to Fallout franchises. From alien abductions to human testing, Bethesda plans to set the story straight with this new game.

Surprise! The next Fallout game isn't a Fallout 3 remake. On Twitter, Kotaku's Jason Schreier elaborated, explaining that from what he's heard the game isn't necessarily an MMO, but it's "not strictly single-player".

The big detail from the teaser and title is the number 76, from Fallout 76.

Also, the inhabitants of Vault 76 were in a control group, meaning they don't have the requisite insanity brought on by Vault-Tec's experiments in the other vaults.

While very little information was given by the developer on the game, they did reveal that a lot more will be coming during the Bethesda Softworks E3 2018 showcase, which is on June 10th. But another Fallout title? That might not seem like much of a difference to the uninitiated, but in reality, it's a different kind of game altogether.

So far, we don't see any bodies, and it looks like there was recently a Reclamation Day ceremony to celebrate the opening of Vault 76. Would it be The Elders Scrolls VI? If Bethesda can make DOOM and Skyrim run well on the console then this is a possibility.

Although none of these details have been confirmed by Bethesda, they paint a likely picture. That said, it is disheartening that Bethesda made a decision to tread this route with what possibly is its most successful franchise given the sheer number of online survival games doing the rounds.

In total, Bethesda's Fallout 76 trailer hit over 15 million views, with two million people tuning in for the 24-hour stream.

Any Fallout fans out there?

In case you didn't know, Bethesda are the folks behind games such as Rage, Dishonored, Wolfenstein, the Doom reboot, The Evil Within, and Prey.
