At E3 2018, Bethesda not only detailed far more information on its upcoming entry into the Fallout franchise – Fallout 76, an always-online prequel to all other Fallout titles that will see players interacting with dozens of other real-world people to complete quests – but also detailed the game’s upcoming special edition. The Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition is the latest in the series’ big box efforts and we’ve got the best pre order prices right here.
What is Fallout 76?
Fallout 76 is an always-online entry into the Fallout franchise, taking place in West Virginia in 2076 and putting players in the role of a survivor from Vault 76. Canonically, this is one of the very first vaults to be opened after the initial nuclear war and ensuing destruction. This gives players a primary motivation of rebuilding from the ground up, and will let players see a wasteland vastly underpopulated compared to previous entries in the series.
With Fallout 76 being an online game, players can team up and befriend other human players to take down enemies and complete quests or choose to engage them in combat and dominate the landscape. The entire game can also be played solo, featuring a full story line and quests like other Fallout games. The game’s map is reportedly four times larger than Fallout 4.
When is Fallout 76 released?
Fallout 76 will be released November 14th, 2018. All editions of the game are set to release on the same day.
