Shared world RPG Fallout 76 is Bethesda’s first crack at something like this, and though they’ve admitted to being nervous about this experiment in the past, everything they’ve showed of the game has looked absolutely excellent. They’ve now released another new video for the game that talks about its several multiplayer aspects, and while it’s not a gameplay video, it still gives you an idea of the mechanics you’ll be fiddling around with while playing.
The new video, made in the instantly regonizable old-timey animated educations video style of Fallout games, encourages players to work together and brave the harsh new world as a team- “there’s no ‘I’ in ‘nuclear wasteland'”, it points out rightly. Build settlements together, explore the wasteland as a team, and you’ll survive longer. But while working as a team is important, the video knows that’s not always going to be the case- beware of other players setting up devious ways of killing you, and should you find yourself as a lone survivor out of your team, be sure to take all their loot for yourself. In the end, it’s every man for himself, it seems.
You can view the full video below. If you want a better idea about the PvP mechanics, among other things, that are going to be featured in Fallout 76, read our recent report on an info blowout on the game through here. Fallout 76 launches on November 14 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but before that, there will be a beta held in October (presumably), the progress for which you will be able to carry over into the full game.
