Fallout 76 is set in the hills of West Virginia, and you’re one of the first to emerge into the Wasteland after the nuclear apocalypse. Furthermore, Fallout 76 is a prequel to the other games and will be four times the size of Fallout 4.
It has new rendering and lighting technology, which allows for “16 times” the detail. Players will travel through six distinct regions, each with its own style, and each with its own set of risks and rewards. There will be new creatures for players to encounter.
The Fallout 76 map will also have multiple nuclear missile sites, and players will be able to utilize them. To get them, you’ll have to defeat enemies to find codes needed to access them, this is easier when you have multiple people, as codes are multi-part. With a full code, you can activate a nuclear launch targeted anywhere on that map you choose. In the resulting fallout, players will find valuable and rare rewards, but you’ll have to make it through the numerous pitfalls of nuclear radiation to get them.
Fallout 76‘s release date was confirmed as November 14, 2018. It’s coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC, and will be available for preorder June 15.
