Is Fallout 76 all you hoped and dreamed it would be?
After a couple of teases and some inside information, we just got our first real look at Fallout 76, an upcoming survival RPG from Bethesda. Looking set to tie up a few loose ends in the Fallout timeline, the game takes place in West Virginia and shines a light on the titular Fallout 76, a shelter built to ensure that Virginia's "way of life will endure".
Unlike other games, Fallout: 76 also has a camera mode, where you can pose with your friends in your settlements, or over the corpses of your greatest enemies.
We'll have more on Fallout 76 as it happens. It's this year's Pip-Boy Edition. Much of the open world is still intact, at least compared to other titles in the series where the landscape is decidedly more desolate.
The Power Armor Edition of Fallout 76 is now sold out across all major retailers. Howard mentioned that dedicated servers will host Fallout 76 with dozens, not thousands, of people on each server.
To help iron out some of the kinks that can befall online games - and their offline ones for that matter - Bethesda will be running a Break-it Early Test Application, or beta if you prefer, with more details on that to come.
Bethesda describes the game as "starting on 2102, Reclamation Day".More news: Pixel 3 XL seekers rejoice, here’s a big fat leak

Bethesda has another blockbuster on their hands with Fallout 76 this fall. The short trailer is below, a longer 20-minute discussion from Bethesda at E3 itself is embedded farther along.
With "all-new lighting, rendering" technology that's vastly improved compared to past Fallout titles, Bethesda's Todd Howard confirmed. The Power Armor Edition requires a $200 investment without a deal, but it comes with a lot more than the standard version.

"Glow-in-the-Dark World Terrain Map: "This physical, fully-colorized 21" x 21" glow-in-the-dark vintage map showcases the six distinct regions of West Virginia complete with irradiated landmarks, towns and wildlife.
The Fallout 76 beta hasn't got a release date, yet, but will obviously arrive before the game goes is released later this year on November 14.
