Fallout 76 release date, beta, multiplayer, trailers and news

The countdown to Fallout 76 has begun. The next addition to the Fallout universe is only a few weeks away, and fans of the post-apocalyptic series are eager to see what the final product is.

Set in post-apocalyptic West Virginia, USA UU., Fallout 76 acts as a prequel to the previous games in the franchise. But there is a big difference: it is completely online.

Players will have the opportunity to build their own settlements and team up with friends, interacting with dozens of other players on the same server along the way.

Speaking of players, servers and settlements, you can expect the world of Fallout 76 games to be four times bigger than the world of Fallout 4, making this the biggest Fallout Bethesda ever made. The way you will build your character is also different.

This time through the páramo, you will use S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Card advantages that help differentiate your character from the thousands of others online. Some advantages will allow you to build with fewer resources, while others give additional damage to one-handed or laser-based weapons. You will exchange cards with your friends and your super team can always exchange cards depending on the mutant threat you face.

Everyone said, it's & it's a different game than Fallout from the usual rate for a single player, but one that could serve to shake the series for the better.

Here everything we know about Fallout 76 so far.

Fallout 76 news and rumors

We know the story

In an interview with Game Informer, game director Todd Howard clarified the general outline of the story, which sees the Vault supervisor 76 leading players through six different regions of West Virginia, all distinct from each other.

"He left before everyone," says Howard. "He left secret instructions for you, and that's the starting point for what we call the main quest, in the end, you throw nuclear weapons in. Nuclear weapons are a game system, but they're also part of the main story." [19659002] History is not just an early cushion to get used to the game systems, either. It requires progression of level to advance to the final moments of the story, so you must have a combined experience between online natural encounters and pre-established missions.

There will be timed events for all players [19659002] In the true spirit of the games of & apos; as service & apos; model, Bethesda has confirmed that there will be limited time events at different points throughout the calendar year. Hines said players could travel quickly to events in real time, and that "when you get close to one, it starts broadcasting for help, it's like a timed multiplayer search."

The advantages will work differently

The reward system in Fallout games usually requires you to make fixed choices about how you want your character to develop. Fallout 76 eliminates that for a more flexible slot system, which means you can customize your own S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Advantages through hundreds of cards that confer alterations to your character, such as increased percentages of melee combat or improved stealth skills.

Different cards are available as you progress to higher levels, and can be found in & apos; card packages & apos; They come with four cards and a chewing gum stick to avoid hunger. There will also be thematic letters linked to scheduled events.

Fallout 76 will not be available on Steam

Bethesda has confirmed Fallout 76 will not be available to buy on Steam on launch. According to the Frequently Asked Questions for the beta test of the game, the PC version will be available "only through Bethesda.net", at least for now.

Bethesda has not specified why he has chosen to sell Fallout 76 directly, rather than via Steam, but he probably has better control over sales and to avoid paying a cut at Valve. Fallout Shelter had a similar route, with the PC version launched exclusively on Bethesda.net and that only became available on Steam almost a year later.

It's a big and big game

In E3 2018 Bethesda boss Todd Howard took the stage to get a little more information Confirmed the West Virginia configuration game and told the crowd that the game is a prequel to all the other Fallout titles, but that it will be four times bigger than Fallout 4. Now that's great.

In terms of new technology, Fallout 76 will feature new rendering technology, lighting and landscaping nology, and "16 times weather systems". The game also incorporates West Virginia folklore into the mutants of the area (watch out for a mutated giant sloth).

Todd Howard describes the game as the survival of softcore. Fear of overcrowded areas? "You will never see the servers, and there will only be dozens of characters on one server, not hundreds," Howard said on stage at the E3 presentation of Bethesda. "You can build your settlement where you want and then you can move it where you want."

On the map, you will find nuclear silos that, according to Todd Howard, "you can do whatever you want with". These weapons can be used to attack your neighbors and, in general, help you stay alive in the post-apocalyptic wasteland.

Howard also announced a special edition of the game that includes a world map of the game that shines in the dark and a powerful armor, yes, really, that will be available along with the base game on November 14, 2018. [19659039] What is Vault 76?

There have been brief mentions of Vault 76 in a couple of previous Fallout games, including a Vault-Tec terminal in Fallout 3, the Mothership Zeta expansion of that game, and a news broadcast reproduced at beginning of Fallout 4.

According to the Fallout tradition, Vault 76 was one of 17 control cameras & apos; with standardized living conditions, that is, not subject to social or genetic experimentation, and their community remained safe underground, while the Great War erased much of the landscape and population of the United States.

The vault was intended to be the first to reopen in 2097, 20 years after the atomic dust had settled in the conflict, with the intention of working to rebuild human society.

The Fallout 76 Xbox One X package includes the game, a controller, a 1TB console and a free month for Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass.

We know when the game is set

The Pip-Boy doll computer in the first preview tells us clearly that the year is 2102. To begin with, this would be the oldest period we've seen in the series of Fallout, a total of 60 years before the first game, and 175 years before the Fallout 3 events.

The vault was decorated by an & apos; Reclamation Day & apos; celebration, in the tercentenary of the United States and the date marked for the inhabitants of the vault to return to the outside world. A poster in the trailer, however, establishes this date in 2097, which means that five years have passed since the doors of the vault were opened.

Here we will be in the world not long after the nuclear bombs devastated the nation, so it seems that we will be the ones we are building. So far, we have seen a different creature design in the game material, so it seems that there will be previous iterations of the irradiated animals from other Fallout games. (We are waiting for a little Deathclaw.)

There will be crafts and camps

So far, we know that the camps will play an integral role in their exploration of Wasteland, which offers shelter, hydration, food and the ability to treat the infection. To expand, you will have to look for resources or mining materials.

The ability to create and expand your own settlements in Fallout 4 was one of the salient features of the game, and the player's positive response has made it a central part of the next game, although we expect it to offer something more attractive than the search missions on which the construction of settlements of Fallout 4 was based.

In addition, there will be many more elements and materials to work with and you will be able to pay to move your settlement to your liking, using the CAMP workshop. The camp The workshop also offers the ability to make implements that can be sold for tapas.

There will be a great focus on the reconstruction of civilization, with the potential to create their own settlements and communities instead of playing solitaire globetrotters. The first trailer sums it up nicely: "When the fight has stopped and the consequences have been resolved, you must rebuild."

Yes, all the online rumors were correct

At the beginning of 2018, gaming site Kotaku claimed to have heard with good authority that the next entry would be a "game online survival role "created from a prototype multiplayer originally planned for Fallout 4 and using the mechanics of building bases that introduced in the game of 2015, and which boosted the huge success of its mobile game offline, Fallout Shelter.

Bethesda had shown interest in online space with his current online El Mud Scrolls MMO and his acquisition of Battlecry Studios (now Bethesda Game Studios Austin), which in fact attended the online multiplayer aspect of Fallout 76. We are sad to see a Fallout game that does not use the strategic VATS shooting system, although we can not imagine it working for the fast-paced nature of an online shooter.

Will there be a beta version for Fallout 76?

Yes, definitely. To get access to the beta of the game when it is released in October, the exact date of the deadline, you simply have to reserve the game in advance. Xbox One players will have access to the beta version before those on PS4 and PC, although it is not yet clear how long this period of exclusivity is.

Bethesda has confirmed that the beta will be the full game and your progress will be transferred to the purchased version.
