A lot of people like to talk about what beautiful games the Fallout series has to offer. The visuals, the gameplay, the depth, and the scope. But let’s not forget, the Fallout games are about a post-apocalyptic world that is the result of a nuclear war that destroyed civilization. Between the franchise’s narrative set-up, the crazy assortment of characters that come as a result of it, and the bizarre creatures that also appear as a result of it, the tone is beyond eerie and strange.
Fallout 76 is set to be the first online multiplayer game of the franchise and so now more than ever, the larger world presented in the story is crucial as you interact with other players as both allies and enemies. No longer interacting with simple non-playable characters (NPC’s), you’ll face players who might stab you in the back the first chance they get or fight alongside you to the bitter end. Essentially, a post-apocalyptic simulator.
Still, all players will start out with the same premise and the eerie tone discussed previously offers that with one of the franchise’s signature trailers. One that takes the perspective of propaganda created by Vault-Tec, the in-universe company that supposedly offers people hope for a bright future in a new world. This time, it’s a live-action trailer and one that will send a chill down your spine yet excite you for the new installment of the Fallout video game series. Check it out below:
Fallout 76 is set to be available for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 14, 2018.
