Fallout 76 will release on November 14, 2018. It looks like we'll start playing at Reclamation Day, the day when the Vault actually opens back up to the Wasteland. The Overseer kindly lets us know that, after an evening of partying the night before, it is finally time to leave the vault.
Settlers are faceless individuals without names or any kind of backstory and there's not much actual meat to the entire settler system or mini-game.
Where is Fallout 76 set?
Bethesda described it on their website as "all-new graphics, lighting and landscape technology brings to life six distinct West Virginia regions".
Todd Howard confirmed that the game is oriented at multiplayer and requires a constant connection to the Bethesda services. You'll eventually be able to have your own private world and mod it. With that in mind Fallout 76 can be played in its entirety - alone. Every character of Vault 76 will, therefore, be a real person, and not AI-controlled. It will also offer a single-player mode, called "solo mode", but this does not mean that it will be an offline game.
Fallout: 76 has a similar settlement building aspect to Fallout 4, but it has been altered to be mobile. There are a few scattered around the map, and to use them you'll first need to find the nuclear launch codes and from what Bethesda showed, it seems that's done by killing hoards of monsters.
The game takes place shortly after the nuclear bombs drop in the United States so it features a wide open wasteland free for the taking. The most plausible option when it comes to purchasing the Power Armor Edition of Fallout 76, though, is secondhand. During the Bethesda conference, however, we got a lot more! Your progression moves into their world when you decide to play with them making sharing the experiences a more memorable one. Thanks to the handy new C.A.M.P. device, players can create a base anywhere in the world.
But after surviving the nuclear attacks, what is in store for players?
Fallout 76 will have a B.E.T.A.
A collector's edition will be available for Fallout 76 which gives players access to a full-fledged T-51 Power Armor helmet which is not only wearable but it will also have a voice changer and a working headlamp. Unfortunately, we didn't get much in the way of details as to how the beta will work or when it will begin other than players will have to pre-order the game to get access to it.
