    I happy with what's shown for Fallout 76 so far. I never expected this to be another main Fallout game, especially not before another TES game, and with Starfield being made, it would just be impossible for Bethesda to make a proper fallout. F76 is just to sate our hunger until they announce F5.

    I'm...interested in seeing where they take it before I commit. I have been a Fallout player since the FIRST game.

    Multi-player survival makes perfect sense in the Fallout universe, but it really isn't my normal cup-o-tea. I'm going to reserve judgement for now, and let more information trickle out, before I decide if I'm gonna dive into the pool.

    I joined the Fallout franchise with the 2nd game. Smile

    Some things Shamus Young recently posted about other games are exceedingly apropos:

    I guess the industry needs to re-learn this lesson every few years: Not every game benefits from multiplayer. Here’s to them figuring it out as soon as possible, before they ruin too many games.

    On top of this is the hilariously improbable way that randos are depicted in the trailer. Have you developers ever TRIED to play online? Haven’t you heard the stories? Are you new to this planet? Randos are rude, mean, scamming, incoherent lunatics. Why would I want them populating the world around me?
    They seem to imagine everyone is a polite helpful articulate roleplaying friend, which is profoundly delusional. Or perhaps they’re well aware of how their game is actually played and they’re just being incredibly dishonest. Either way, it’s not a good look.
    The lack of NPCs, if true, means they can't even be bothered to try making a proper RPG anymore. They're just going full sandbox.

    Yeah that's supposed to be the whole point with 76. Again it's so unrealistic to expect another Fallout RPG 3 years after Fallout 4, especially with Starfield and TES 6 being in production by Bethesda Game Studios. We'll have another Fallout RPG, just not this year, and I'm fine with that.

    I'd actually rather they stick to making sandboxes (which they're excellent at), and get Obsidian or Bioware or Black Isle ( Cry ) or any developer that's actually good at writing to do the RPG aspects.

    Be like the FO3/FNV relationship, except entirely sandbox followed by an RPG based upon it.

    THIS is an idea I can definitely get behind.

    NoClip (a documentary YouTuber) was allowed into Bethesda a few weeks before the Fallout 76 announcement; I would recommend watching the whole thing, it answers a lot of questions about the game, its development, as well as some hints regarding Starfield.

    They've already said what the game was going to be, a survival sandbox game, not battle royale.

    I have a question I hope gets answered the closer we get to the game release:

    Will we still be able to use the Fallout Pip-Boy app (or an updated one for Fallout76) on our tablet/phones while in the game?

    I used the crap out of it in Fallout4, especially to see where I was on the map and switching gear/weapons quickly... Wink

    In a bit of reassuring news, it has been confirmed that if you get killed, either by a player or an NPC critter, you don't lose any of your loot or gear, you just pick a spot to respawn and get back into it.

    I prefer ES to Fallout in general. However, Fallout 76 takes place in my home state and I'm curious to see how it is portrayed.
