While very little was revealed in terms of game-play mechanics, release date or even platforms the game is being developed for, it’s been enough to get Fallout fans excited for the full reveal expected next month at E3.
What we do know is that the game is set in 2102 ( the earliest setting of any Fallout game to date ) and that it will be coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One with PC of course being the home of the franchise, it’s biggest play base and Bethesda’s lead development platform.
However speculation is that Fallout 76 will be a major departure from the classic single player story driven RPG Fallout fans are used to with Kotaku news editor Jason Schreier who no doubt has the industry contacts to lend his comments credibility, tweeted “Anyone who spends the next two weeks expecting Fallout: 76 to be a new traditional single-player RPG will be VERY disappointed”.
Battle Royal? MMO? We probably won’t know for sure until June 10th but it’s almost definitely going to be an online focused game of some sort. The rumors that are getting the most steam online seem to be that it will be a open world online survival based game along the line of Rust and DayZ.
