A new Vault is open and it’s time again to venture into the Wastelands is Fallout 76.
On May 29th, a strange thing happened. A Fallout PLEASE STAND BY with a lone Vault Tech Pip-Boy Figurine streamed on Bethesda’s Twitch channel. Besides an occasional weird thing happening during the stream, the only thing was the screen and the figurine.
That then prompted the speculations to start flying. What could all this mean?
Well, this morning we found out. A new Fallout game is on the horizon.
Announced via a teaser trailer we now know that the new Fallout game is called Fallout 76.
Here’s a quick little breakdown of the trailer:
In the teaser trailer, which you can watch below, we get a glimpse of what we know to be Vault 76. We get the Fallout iconic oldie music, A version of John Denver’s “Take Me Home Country Roads” starts to play. As the camera pans from the old gas tube radio, on the bed we see and spaceman doll, a fedora hat, and a back pack that looks packed. The mechanized hanging, changes from “Good Evening” to “Good Morning”. Panning through we see in vault living with board games, guitar, a poster celebrating the tri-centennial and Vault 76. We then see a television broadcast of a dedication of Vault 76 and that potentially our character have received a number of awards. Next we see an invite on the computer, a table with some delicious Sugar Bombs and what looks like a party out in the court yard. We then see more of the celebration which is for Reclamation Day. Finally we get to see our protagonist, well his back, as he straps on his Pip-Boy to get ready to leave Vault 76.
To note, while the trailer is literally just a teaser, we really don’t know much about Fallout 76. We do know that it involved Vault 76. Oh, and this is total speculation, but in the song, West Virginia is being sung about. Will Fallout 76 take place in West Virginia? Only time and E3 2018 will tell.
We don’t yet have a release date, but with the Bethesda E3 Showcase happening on June 10th and 6:30pm PST/9:30pm EST, we’d bet a mule that we’ll get more information at that time. Something we do know is that Fallout 76 is listed to be releasing on the Xbox One, PS4, and PC. No word on the Nintendo Switch.
