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!
