After a couple of teasers, Bethesda decided to announce Fallout 76, a new installment of its post-apocalyptic saga, which, according to several sources, will take the series in a new direction. Now, new information indicates that it will be an online RPG with elements seen in survival titles.
Various sources who prefer to remain anonymous told Jason Schreier, a journalist from Kotaku, that Fallout 76 will be an RPG inspired by games like DayZ and Rust. Originally the project was born as a multiplayer version of Fallout 4 that sought to explore the possibilities that an online Fallout could offer. This concept evolved until it became Fallout 76.
According to the report, Fallout 76 will feature stories and missions like you would expect from another Bethesda Game Studios project. That said, it will also put emphasis on settlement construction systems – such as those seen in Fallout 4 – as well as on mechanics of survival titles that have become popular in recent years.
An interesting detail is that the sources point out that the gameplay of Fallout 76 changes constantly, as it happens in other games as a service. So, it seems that Bethesda sees it as a project that will receive post-release content to keep the players hooked.
Also, the information indicates that Fallout 76 is under development by the Bethesda Game Studios offices in Maryland and Austin. We remind you that the studio in Austin was responsible for BattleCry, hero shooter that was canceled.
It is important to note that Bethesda Softworks has not commented on this information. So, we recommend that, for now, you take it with a grain of salt. After all, there is not much left for the Bethesda conference in E3 2018 and there we will know all the important details of Fallout 76.
