Fallout 76 Finally Gets a Release Date, and It’s Later This Year

Everything we know about 'Fallout: 76'

Fallout Shelter now on Nintendo Switch, PS4

The game will be four times as big as Fallout 4 and is set in West Virginia.

As for the world of Fallout 76, it will be a prequel, set before all previous Fallout games. New creatures are part of the package as well, including mutant dogs and some kind of giant, flying monster.

We then get treated to a classic Fallout style infomercial which then showcases a bit of gameplay in action.

In these fallout zones, the world changes drastically. Pair that with the fact that the online experience will pair your with a player size of no more than 12, the likelihood of running into enemy players won't be terribly common. Before you get upset (this is exciting to be honest) it's still very much Fallout. With a huge world filled with quests and stories to discover, and wonderful detail to simply walk around in.

Fallout 76 is the next entry in the Fallout series from Bethesda Game Studios.

Here’s what Square Enix announced at E3 2018
Square Enix and Capcom, meanwhile, will have a Final Fantasy XIV - Monster Hunter World crossover event slated for Summer 2018. Well, Square Enix just wrapped up a short and uneventful E3 press conference that really seemed to phone it in.

You can explore and build in six different regions (Ashheap, the forest, toxic valley, the mire, savage divide, cranberry and bog).

The game will feature PvP so don't worry about not being able to kill other people if that's what you're into. We will update this the moment it is made available.

Base building from Fallout 4 returns, but is more flexible. The difference is you can now do that with friends by your side. One bonus for the Switch version is that you can use the touchscreen or controller to play. This means you'll never be forced to be the "sidekick" when playing with others.

Howard called the game "softcore survival", adding that players won't lose progression or their characters upon death.

"If you don't want to hop onto the "Fallout" hype train just yet, why don't you head on down to check out wild and wonderful West Virginia while you wait?" Drop $0.76 into the Mement-o-Matic coin machine to receive a special Fallout 76-stamped commemorative penny.
