Fallout 76 is one of the games that were announced at E3 2018 and while the game has a lot of confusion surrounding it, it is safe to say that people are talking about it and are anticipating what it is going to be like when it comes out. Luckily we won’t be waiting too long as the game will be coming out November 14th, 2018. Todd Howard talked about Fallout 76 a little bit and where it fits into the franchise. The following is what he had to say in this regard:
Fallout 76 is a prequel to all of the other games and it’s our biggest one yet, Four times the size of Fallout 4.
Fallout 76 is an idea that came to the studio 4 years ago and according to Todd Howard, there are three main pillars of the game that he wanted to focus on the most. These are open world, survival and real characters, as in multiplayer.
Bethesda has been known best for making single-player games and jumping to multiplayer might be a risk but Todd Howard has already talked about how this game is going to be different as compared to most online multiplayer games and how Fallout 76 is not going to be what people anticipate it to be like. Todd Howard further went on to mention the following:
About four years ago we hit upon an idea that was perfect for Fallout. It was an idea that we just couldn’t shake; we knew we had to do it, and we had to do it in a big way. We have always wanted to tell the story of what it would be like for the first characters that leave the vaults. But there is one big difference with this game. Each of these characters is a real person because, yes, Fallout 76 is entirely online.
Fallout 76 is the next game in the franchise but it has not been called Fallout 5 for a reason. While this is going to be an online game Bethesda is still focused on making single-player games after this one. We have already heard about Starfield and Elder Scrolls VI. Both these games are going to be single-player, so you can rest assured that while Bethesda is experimenting with Fallout 76, the core focus of the developer has not shifted.
You’ll be who you want to be; exploring a huge world, doing quests, experiencing a story and leveling up. We love those things about our games as well and we would not have it any other way. But like so many of you we have always wanted to see what our style of game would be like in multiplayer. So, lots of us talk about the experiences that we have in our games but we’ve never experienced them together
