Just a few years after the release of Fallout 4, Bethesda surprised fans officially announcing Fallout 76, the next entry into his post-apocalyptic franchise franchise franchise franchise. The new game was revealed in a trailer after a series of theses, and Bethesda discussed it more thoroughly at the E3 2018 and the QuakeCon 2018. We even have the opportunity to play this game at a recent hands- on. But the game is now out, and we just started taking steps in Bethesda's ample adventure.
To make sure you're aware of everything you need to know about Fallout 76, we have compiled all the information we have about the game so far: its platforms, its online functionality, anti-tutorial features and where the game falls into the chronology of the series.
If you played beta, you'll be glad to know that the game is receiving a release date update containing a new amount of content. Meanwhile, be on the lookout for complete review, as well as a lot of guides to help you get started.
Our Fallout 76 Impressions Early Review
"Fallout 76 is trying to get rid of some new ideas for the series, but with a few exceptions, they significantly reduce many aspects of the game. Multiplayer is fun, but it's not an ideal way to enjoy searches. Shooting mechanics are not powerful enough to make heavy fighting activities enjoyable for long periods of time. Things feel better as a solo experience, but the lack of characters in the universe makes you become emotionally invested in the world and your challenging goals. Read the full preview previews.
What is Fallout 76?
Fallout 76 is a prequel for all previous Fallout games. Located in 2102, you are playing a 76-year-old resident Vault 76, 25 years after America's bomb dropped. Your task is simple: explore what remains of post-apocalyptic America and rebuild civilization.
Long time fans will probably recognize Vault 76; although it is not a place I've visited before, this is not the first mention of the series. Both Fallout 3 and 4 refer to it and, according to Fallout Wikia, this Vault of West Virginia was occupied by 500 of America's finest and brightest minds. Unlike the more grotesque experimental vaults in the Fallout universe, Vault 76 is a control vault to be opened 20 years after a nuclear war. But if the vault had to open 20 years after the bomb dropped, why did 25 years pass? The story presents some surprises for those who want to face their innumerable challenges.
Fallout 76 uses Engine Creation, the same engine used to make Fallout 4, but will have much more graphic details than its predecessor. Game Director Todd Howard said the Fallout 76 has a new playback and lighting technology that allows "16 times" details.
Who develops it?
Bethesda Game Studios, developer in Maryland, responsible for the Elder Scrolls series and both Fallout 3 and Fallout 4, are working on the game. In addition, Bethesda Game Studios Austin – formerly BattleCry Studios – has assisted in fine tuning the creation engine to support multiplayer functionality.
Is it a survival game online?
Fallout 76 is a different kind of game than its predecessors. It's "completely online", but do not worry, you'll be able to play it and solo. According to Bethesda, the idea of taking this approach to survival in the open world came four years ago when he began to work on building a Fallout multiplayer experience. Howard described the game's approach to survival as "softcore," meaning death is not equal to the loss of progression.
You can have a party with three other players. You will not be able to manage server placement when you sign in because you will automatically be joined in a session with others when the game starts. Of course, you also have the option of joining with your friends and playing together.

Howard commented that Fallout 76 will have dedicated servers that will support the game "now and for years to come". At launch, there will be only public servers, but Bethesda plans to introduce private servers to allow players to invite friends to play to prevent unwanted behavior.
Some classic mechanics in past games will change to adapt to switching to online play. For example, V.A.T.S has been reconfigured to work in real-time, while allowing players to target certain parts of the enemy's body. But this time it has been updated to be more a tool that allows you to identify environmental dangers.
How big is the world?
According to Howard, the world of Fallout 76 is four times bigger than that of Fallout 4. There are six different regions to explore and each has its own style, risks and rewards. Confirmed areas include Western Virginia State Capital, The Greenbrier, Woodburn Circle, New River Gorge Bridge and Camden Park. Content in each area there is a variety of new creatures, some of which are based on Western Virginian folklore. You can take the map from the image below.
What can you do?
Like previous games, players spend most of their time exploring and completing quests. However, Fallout 76 does not contain non-personal characters because all surviving people are controlled by active players. Instead, the game uses a combination of robot NPCs, collected records, and environmental stories to give gamers what they need to combine words and storytelling in general.
Considering the premise of the game to rebuild the world, there are basic building elements similar to Fallout 4. You can create a base anywhere using an element called Mobile Construction and Assembly Platform or C.A.M.P. These can be set down in the world and allow you to build an impromptu camp. We have to see the player who put walls and decorated the base with billiard tables, toilets and other household items. As the "mobile platform" part of the name indicates, your CAMP can also be moved and moved, allowing you to move your base anywhere in the world.
While you can help build the world, you can also destroy it. If you have the necessary nuclear launch codes, you can access a rocket silo to pull a kernel at any point on the map. This irradiates the area you choose, but also allows you to discover rare weapons, tools and objects. Be careful; Nuking an area also causes the stronger enemies to appear, making it more difficult to survive. But do not be discouraged by it, C.A.M.P. the planning system makes it easy for players to quickly rebuild their homes and, if they are aware of a threat, can pack up things and move to a new location.
As an online experience, the player's choice is incredibly important, going as much as giving players the freedom to choose who the heroes are and who are the villains. Early images showed more players participating in fights and participating in friendly activities, which seems to indicate that players have the freedom to choose their way into the world of Fallout 76.
How does Creating and progressing characters work?
There are similar tools to create characters like Fallout 4. However, you have the freedom to change your appearance at any time. In addition, you can use the new game mode of the game during the creation process to see how your character looks better and to borrow some photos that you can share on social media.
The SPECIAL system returns and is slightly different. Like previous games, SPECIAL includes the following statistics: Force, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility, Luck. You have given a point to put into any of these statistics each time you raise your level. The first thing you do when going out of the safe is choosing a SPECIAL and then choosing a PERK in that SPECIAL SPECIAL. Essentially, each SPECIAL is a set of points for your benefits.
But unlike previous games, the benefits are now books that you can team up and unlock as you position yourself in a particular SPECIAL; although you have the freedom to change cards at any time if you want to change your construction. Each SPECIAL feature you develop has a 15-card perk card. These perk cards can be further upgraded from one to five points to increase their power.
You can get extra perk cards through the Perk Card packages (four random cards) you earn at each initial level (1-10), then every 5 afterwards. You can also choose a perc card for each level, usually from your SPECIAL choice. There are hundreds of Perks cards that you can unlock, so naturally SPECIAL is ranked after a while (you earn a rank up every time you raise your level). At level 50, you will stop raising the SPECIAL rows, but you will still receive card packs.
How does PvP work?
When you shoot someone you do a little damage, which can be easily equated to snap them to cause them to duel. In response to this, the other player may choose to ignore or engage. If they engage in a battle with you, they will begin to deteriorate completely. Whoever is killed in this approved PvP match has the option to take revenge. By doing so, it gives the person the opportunity to double the rewards awarded for success.
If you rather want to ignore a PvP match, there is no way to get rid of being killed – despite the small damage you have had during the initiation phases. However, if you are killed by a player under these circumstances, that player becomes a wanted killer and will not receive any rewards to kill you.
A wanted killer is marked on the map as a red star and a reward is placed on his head. Players who want to win this reward are not visible on the Criminal Map. If the killer is killed, the money from that reward is taken out of stock.
To give players time to adapt appropriately to the way Fallout 76 plays, PvP will not be available to players up to level five. And if you lose any PvP meeting, the only thing you'll lose is the junk you collected, which can be recovered after death if it has not been taken by other players. You can always keep junk in the stashes found around the world, so protect some of your stock. Your armor and weapons are retained in your inventory after death.

I recently received a Fallout 76 application. It plays similarly to Fallout 4, but has some new additions that subtly parallelize the paradigm set by past entries in the series. We have to experience three hours of play, exploring a decent piece of the opening area while we search and generally work in cooperation with the players around us. There's a lot to unpack on how the next version of the multiplayer RPG open-world, so be sure to watch the video above and read our full thoughts in our in-depth preview detailing what to play.
Any voice chat?
It is possible to talk to your teammates and even the aliens you find in the world. It's based on areas, so your ability to hear other tracks will vary. But if you do not want to have anything to do with aliens, it is possible to stop your voices entirely.
Guides and what to do first
Fallout 76 is a massive game that can overwhelm you right from the start. To ease the pain of going out of Vault 76, we've gathered a few recommendations from where to go first. But if you want to do a complete analysis of the things you need to know before you start, check us out Fallout 76 Beginner's Guide. In addition, we have guides on Perk cards and Power Armor locations.
Fallout 76 is under development for PC, PS4 and Xbox One and is scheduled to be released on November 14th. Unfortunately, there is no word about launching a Nintendo switch that did not seem dishonorable after Skyrim re-launch reached that platform.
