Bethesda Game Studios are known for creating some of the finest single-player, role playing games of the last two decades. This year, they are shaking things up a little by diving into their first online multiplayer title with Fallout 76. While fans of the series can expect more of the great things they have come to love from the other Fallout games, Fallout 76 will seek to replicate those same experiences while populating the world with other players.
25 years after nuclear war breaks out on Earth, players will awaken inside of Vault 76, a fallout shelter in West Virginia. As I began my three hour preview I was asked to create a character and take their photo for an I.D. badge. Once you’ve done this you’re free to explore the inside of the vault. As you move towards the exit you’ll walk past a variety of numbered tables that contain resources to prepare you for your adventure outside in the world.
