E3 is one of the most highly anticipated gaming events of the year. Big game companies such as Bethesda, Ubisoft and, EA host panels during E3 and they unveil exciting gameplay footage of their upcoming games. Talking about E3, Bethesda was the company which made the crowds go wild when it announced Fallout 76. Not just that, but Bethesda also hyped up the game by releasing a short trailer which gave fans an idea of what’s to come.
The Fallout Franchise
When it comes to game franchises, there aren’t that many titles who can even compare with Fallout. Just take the latest Fallout 4 for example. This game is regarded as being one of the world’s best RPG (role-playing-game) ever made and Bethesda generated lots of profits as a result of that.
With that being said, it should come as no surprise that gamers everywhere were expecting Bethesda to announce Fallout 5. However, this didn’t happen and Bethesda decided to unveil Fallout 76 instead. Although, this is not such a bad thing and today we are going to tell you why.
The interesting thing about Fallout 76 is that fans seemed to be a little disappointed that Bethesda didn’t announce Fallout 5 instead. However, fans started getting more hyped for Fallout 76 as Bethesda kept on announcing exciting details such as the fact that Fallout 76 will be an online game.
The first thing we need to mention about the new Fallout game is that it’s scheduled to come out on November 14th, 2018. Therefore, we won’t have to wait that much until we can get our hands on it. However, today we are going to check everything there is to know about it and see if it’s worth our attention or not.
All Fallout games have been about the player’s journey through the wastelands. However, Bethesda wants to provide fans with a different adventure this time since Fallout 76 will be online. The game will be played in a multiplayer setting which means that people will be able to team up with their friends and complete missions together.
Since we are talking about an online game, Bethesda announced that players will be able to fight each other. This is exciting news since shooting mutants and bandits can get boring at times. We can only imagine how much fun the PvP combat will be in Fallout 76, especially with the V.A.T.S. feature.
Limited Number of Players
One of the most interesting thing about Fallout 76’s online mode is that Bethesda announced that it will not feature thousands of players in the same location. Moreover, Bethesda said that player characters will not be “tied to one server” and that only a couple players will appear on the same server.
All Fallout games are known for being focused on survival. Players wake up in the middle of a wasteland and they need to find or craft gear in order to survive the harsh environment. Luckily, Bethesda promised that Fallout 76 will be a survival game.
Obviously, some people prefer to play solo and fighting against other players is not what they like. Fortunately, Bethesda announced that Fallout 76 can be played solo and that no one is going to be forced to go online.
Another exciting feature that the new Fallout game will have to offer is the ability to deploy nukes. Yes, players will finally be able to launch nukes and destroy their enemies. The interesting thing about this feature is that players will need to collect fragments and all other types of resources before being able to launch nukes, thus giving players incentive to keep coming back for more.
