The teaser trailer does not feature any gameplay mechanics and instead shows the setting of Vault 76, one of the many control vaults by Vault-Tec based on Fallout lore. Vault 76, according to lore that was mentioned in Fallout 3, is located somewhere in Virginia or perhaps in West Virginia, given the background music by John Denver’s Take Me Home Country Road.
According to Kotaku, Fallout 76 won’t be the traditional one player roleplaying game installment of Fallout as it will be a “an online survival RPG”, basing on the publishing site’s sources. “heavily inspired by games like DayZ and Rust”said Kotaku.
Kotaku further divulged details about Fallout 76’s origins that spins out of the Fallout 4 multiplayer prototype alongside familiar gameplay features like quests and a story with a base building feature that first debuted in Fallout 4’s settlement building.
Earlier, there were a number of speculations about the teaser. Some believed that it will be a remaster of the Fallout 3 game that will be celebrating its tenth year anniversary while some high heaven hopes stated that Bethesda was to announce the next installment of the franchise.
It is expected that Bethesda will reveal more details about Fallout 76 in the coming E3. Expect Fallout 76 to be a very different Fallout game compared to the previous releases and it will be available for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One despite having no concrete release date yet.
