Rumor: Fallout 76 Online Survival RPG

  • There has been some buzz around the new Fallout game that was originally set to be a multiplayer version of Fallout 4 but rumor has it apparently it’s now evolved into a different version of the game. Fallout 76 got a short but sweet trailer this week that shows what Vault 76 looks like.
  • Inspired by games like Dayz and RustFallout 76 is rumored to be a multiplayer online survival RPG.
  • Unlike Fallout 3 and 4, Fallout 76 is set 20 years after the nuclear war, rather than 200 years. This means that things are far less developed in this alternative universe than the environments in the last two Fallout games.
  • Not only is Fallout 76 being developed in the home of Skyrim and Fallout 4 but in the main offices of Bethesda Game Studios which they opened earlier this year in Austin.
  • We will have to wait for more details at this year’s E3 2018 from Bethesda.
