There has been a lot of speculation about the mysterious entry from Bethesda on Twitter since yesterday and today we can officially write that it was about the game Fallout 76! Watch its first teaser trailer below.
From yesterday afternoon, video game fans were betting on what Bethesda would announce in a moment. We knew that it will be something from the Fallout world, but we did not know what exactly we were dealing with, a full-blooded RPG, some mobile production, or maybe a Fallout 3 remake for the Switch. Today we know a bit more, but Fallout 76 still has a lot of question marks.
One thing is certain, Bethesda is preparing a new version of this iconic series of which it has just announced the first trailer.
As you can see, the action concerns Vault 76 and it’s actually all the official information we can give you today. We will learn more about the game at the Bethesda conference on June 11, but Kotaku reports that Fallout 76 is an online game heavily inspired by DayZ and Rust, which unfortunately does not answer too many questions. While the video trailer might misguide you into thinking that this is a traditional entry in the Fallout series, however, it is entirely different according to Kotaku.
It seems, therefore, that Fallout 4 will not receive its full successor yet, and the new game is rather a spin-off series. This is also confirmed by other reports from December when an anonymous web user wrote that Fallout 76 is a fallout version of Rust an online survival game.
For those who have not played any game in the Fallout series yet, it is an entertaining open world game set in a future dystopian world full of mutants.
