In Fallout 76, nukes are your play thing

Emmett Howard | 12 June, 2018, 14:07

Previous Fallout games have enjoyed extensive mod support, but as an online game with an inextricable multiplayer focus, the Fallout 76 situation wasn't so clear. It wasn't explicitly explained, but it's likely you'll reload in a different world at your last save point if you die. Together, players will go on quests, slaughter monsters, build communities and eke out a hardscrabble existence in the irradiated wastelands of West Virginia.

In the world of Fallout, the American government and a shady company called Vault-tec, create a series of fallout shelters to protect a selection of citizens from an impending nuclear war. You can read about the Power Armor Edition of Fallout 76 in detail at Bethesda's website.

The multiplayer aspect of the new Fallout game has fans excited, but do you have to play online, or can you play solo?

Beyond that, there are greater threats to worry about: nuclear launch sites will be placed throughout the map and players can gain control of them. Powered by your Pip Boy, it will certainly be odd to play a Fallout without V.A.T.S.

In fact, some have made clear they want to have the freedom to prioritize certain kinds of traffic over others. Internet service providers now have the power to block websites, throttle services, and censor online content.

If you are looking to pre-order the game, Bethesda announced a Collector's Edition that comes with a plethora of goodies. The difference is you can now do that with friends by your side. Post-nuclear America has never looked so lovely!

Use the all-new Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform (C.A.M.P.) to build and craft anywhere in the world. You'll be able to see all of West Virginia's six distinct regions, each with their own styles. But beware, not everyone will be quite so neighborly. This destruction also creates a high-level zone with rare and valuable resources.

Fallout 76 launches November 14, so if you're going to book time off from work, do it soon.
