After a 24-hour Twitch stream , Bethesda Softworks revealed the next game in the Fallout universe. It’s called Fallout 76. I assume it's name is based off of the vault number where it begins. I wasn’t expecting this new game to be announced. I for sure thought Bethesda was re releasing Fallout 3 for the switch.
In the teaser trailer the scene is set inside an upkept vault. The vault looks like a party was held with balloons, confetti and a banner reading “Reclamation Day.” The setting seems to be that of a family household in a vault. Yet the only character that appears is a single vault dweller. Rocking a blue Vault 76 jumpsuit and a Pip-Boy with a date Oct. 27, 2102. With a broadcast stating, “When the fighting has stopped and the fallout has settled, you must rebuild.”
ALL ABOARD THE SPECULATION TRAIN!
So I remember reading somewhere Vault 76 was a control vault with 500 residents, set to open two decades after the bombs fell, so do with that information what you will, but with the date of 2102 that means this is a prequel which also means those assholes from the Brotherhood of Steel aren't out roaming the wasteland being douche nozzles. I believe also 2102 was the year The Master created super mutants, so hopefully we get some new sick ass super mutant hybrids to fight against.
Yet with this being the earliest game after the war does that mean radiation will be running wild in the wasteland? Will everything be a lot harder in this game because of it? The great winter happens in 2103, will this be a storyline in game as well? I hope so. I just hope this isn't an MMO, like everyone is afraid of. So while we wait let’s load up some Fallout 3 and refresh our memories.
