Bethesda Announces Fallout 76
Bethesda Softworks has announced a new entry in the Fallout series. Not many details are known about the game at the moment other than the title, Fallout 76, and implication that it is at least initially set in Vault 76, with the game’s teaser trailer using the song “Take Me Home, Country Roads”. More details are set to be revealed in Bethesda’s E3 showcase event, which begins at 6:30pm on June 10, 2018.
Fallout is a series of post-apocalyptic RPGs initially created by Black Isle Studios as isometric RPGs before being revived by Bethesda Softworks with an open-world first-person structure after it acquired the intellectual property. The games feature a retrofuturistic, atompunk aesthetic and are set in the 22nd and 23rd century of an alternate world driven by 1950s visions of the future where a nuclear war in the late 21st century turns America into a wasteland, with some members of humanity surviving in special underground vaults. The previous game, Fallout 4, was released in 2015.
