The quest that you get sent out takes you through 6 distinct regions (Toxic Valley, The Forest, Ash Heap, Savage Divide, Cranberry Bog, The Mire) with new Fallout creatures and folklore from West Virginia to bring Fallout 76 to life. The game one of their largest, four times larger than Fallout 4, which was the largest Fallout map since Bethesda took over the series with Fallout 3.

After a fantastic Skyrim sketch making fun of how many times the game has been ported to different devices, Todd Howard introduced Fallout 76.

This is the trailer that was released during the Microsoft conference. Players will be able to team up with fellow Vault 76 dwellers and face the dangers of the wasteland with one another or against each other in the online survival game that is Fallout 76. "You'll have your own character experience, but you'll also be able to play with people in your group and do some explore yourself, you'll be able to build settlements and defenses, but you'll also run into people who are trying to take your resources and kill you". He said he is very excited that such a popular game is going to be set in his home state. It's what Todd Howard calls "Softcore Survival" - death won't mean that you lose your character, and you'll only be in a world with "dozens, not hundreds or thousands" of other players. There will be a special collector's edition of the game that comes with a map of the territory that glows in the dark, as well as a fully wearable Power Armor helmet. "Fallout" is a post-apocalyptic video game with an atompunk style based on the culture and style of the American 1950s. But Bethesda knew that and they structurally built the game around that very fear. Fallout 76 will be available on November 14th. It won't be an MMORPG like The Elder Scrolls Online, though - it's more of a shared world like Destiny 2, with far less players hanging around than in your typical MMORPG.

How does Fallout 76 differ from the mainline entries?

When will Fallout 76 launch?

The version on the Nintendo Switch will support both the console's touchscreen and also the Joy-Cons, so gamers will have some options when it comes to choosing how they want to play it. Over time, it has grown from its PC roots to other gaming platforms but it was only with Fallout Shelter that the franchise broke out into mobile.

As referenced in other Fallout games, Vault 76 is one of the control vaults built by Vault-Tec where no bad social experiments were performed on its inhabitants.

Fallout 76 is the online prequel where every surviving human is a real person.
