E3 2018: Fallout 76 is absolutely massive — and here’s the trailer

Right now, every Fallout fan in the world has been singing “Take Me Home, Country Roads” nonstop for the past week or so. That’s probably not going to change after seeing the first gameplay trailer for the next installment of this popular post-apocalyptic series.

At the Microsoft E3 showcase, Bethesda confirmed that Fallout 76 will feature a world four times as big as the one of Fallout 4 and will serve as a prequel to the rest of the series. The game will be set shortly after the nuclear apocalypse and send players across West Virginia to explore (and possibly rebuild) a ruined world. Some sort of online component is rumored, although we’ll have to wait until the Bethesda conference later today to find out more.

As for the trailer, it seems to feature a world that’s a little more lush and much less deteriorated than the ones we’re used to seeing in other Fallout titles. We’ll take you home with some new colorful footage after the break!

Almost heaven, West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah valley
Life is old there, older than the trees
Younger than the mountains, blowing like the breeze
Take me hooooome, country roooooads
To the plaaaaace, I belooooong
West Virginiaaaaa, mountain mamaaaaa
Take me hooome, country roooads

Justin called it. I have been singing that tune all week–and I haven’t bought a single Fallout game, ever.

if this is going to be a reskinned ESO i’m going to freak! I want the following:

1) I want to be able to climb ladders (even DDO has this!)
2) I want to be able to shimmy on ledges (even DDO has this!)
3) I want verticality in environments (even DDO has this!)
4) I want destructible objects (even mobile games have this!)

meh… everyone is just going to be running around in their T-51s this is going to be boring! ok thanks! bye!

Why not use the John Denver version of the song, though? “Maybe” wouldn’t have been nearly as compelling with a cover, as it was with the original Ink Spots rendition.

Seriously, Bethesda, too cheap to pay John Denver’s estate?

Absolutely massive and supports -dozens- of players. What sort of 1990s multiplayer time warp did we slip into?

West Virginia? That’s too close to the DC east coast for my taste. I was hoping for a Fallout game set in the Midwest/Great Plains particularly about the Midwest Brotherhood of Steel.

Fallout ended after Fallout 2. This is part of their continued bastardization of the brand.

I’ve got to agree with you, Skor. I really liked 1 and 2 but not anything after. The setting was cool but it became just a crappy FPS in the Fallout setting.

Eh, I’m not impressed with bragging about how “big” a game world is. But I’m still stoked for the actual reveal, and I’ll definitely be watching live!

Never got hooked into Fallout games. Hope this one is a bit hit with fans of the franchise.

Tinfoil hate theory based on the trailer: You are playing the founding father of the enclave.

I can’t wait for all the game breaking “features” that will be celebrated because it’s a Bethesda RPG.

Reader

It would not be a Bethesda game without a fan made patch that actually makes it playable.

Bugs will be a feature, no doubt. Heh.
