Fallout 76

Bethesda today finally ended their almost 24 hour long tease, by revealing Fallout 76, which is- well, what is it? We don’t actually know, since it was just a short cinematic teaser trailer with no gameplay footage, and no idea of what the final game might be like.

The teaser looks similar enough to Fallout 4‘s, for example, that you might think it might be a new spin off RPG ala, say, Fallout New Vegas, right? It seems that that will not be the case, however. Speaking on Twitter, Kotaku’s Jason Schreier, a reporter and industry insider with a known track record, and one who never reports something without doing his due diligence on it first, has confirmed that Fallout 76 will be an online game of sorts (its single player portion is unclear at this point). He has subsequently doubled down on his statement, stating that those who are expecting a single player RPG will be disappointed, and that what he is saying isn’t based on conjecture at all. This, of course, is already in line with reports we have that the game being like Rust, an online survival game. It seems like it flat out may not have a single player portion at all, depending on the degree to which reports like this one apply.

So while this is a new Fallout game, this will probably not be a standard open world RPG like Bethesda games usually are- which is undoubtedly going to disappoint a lot of series veterans and fans. Nonetheless, depending on what kind of game it is, and how it does, it might end up doing well, and being a meaningful addition to the Fallout universe anyway.

We’ll know for sure what it is at Bethesda’s E3 show, now a little over a week and a half away, either way.
