Fallout 76 is now confirmed to be an always online multiplayer game where you and a bunch of other players can get together for one big ol' post-apocalyptic party. Help each other, hurt each other, launch nukes at each other, quest together, or just ignore each other. It's all up to you when Fallout 76 launches on November 14, 2018 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Bethesda's Todd Howard did confirm that you can still play the game solo, if you so desire.

Actual gameplay was shown off during Bethesda's event tonight but it doesn't seem to be available as its own upload. However, you can watch their E3 Showcase starting at around the 2:18:12 mark to see the gameplay for yourself.

Additional snippets of information include the announcement of a $199 (USD) "Power Armor Edition" that comes with a wearable Power Armor Helmet, a duffel bag, figurines, steelcase, in-game digital items, and a glow in the dark world map of Fallout 76.


Bethesda also announced that there will be a B.E.T.A. (Break-it Early Test Application) for Fallout 76 coming. As it stands right now, it seems as though the only way to guarantee access to the beta is to pre-order the game. I'll be sure to post something more concrete if this changes. Dates for the B.E.T.A. were not yet revealed.
