  • Summary: Fallout 76 is the online prequel where every surviving human is a real person. Work together – or not – to survive. Under the threat of nuclear annihilation, you’ll experience the largest, most dynamic world ever created in the legendary Fallout universe. Reclamation Day, 2102. 25 yearsFallout 76 is the online prequel where every surviving human is a real person. Work together – or not – to survive. Under the threat of nuclear annihilation, you’ll experience the largest, most dynamic world ever created in the legendary Fallout universe. Reclamation Day, 2102. 25 years after the bombs fall, you and your fellow Vault Dwellers – chosen from the nation’s best and brightest – emerge into post-nuclear America. Play alone or band together as you explore, quest, build and triumph against the wasteland’s greatest threats. Multiplayer finally comes to the epic open-world RPGs of Bethesda Game Studios. Create your character with the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system and forge your own path in a new and untamed wasteland with hundreds of locations. Whether you journey alone or with friends, a new and unique Fallout adventure awaits. Use the all-new Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform (C.A.M.P.) to build and craft anywhere in the world. Your C.A.M.P. will provide much-needed shelter, supplies and safety. You can even set up shop to trade goods with other survivors. But beware, not everyone will be quite so neighborly. [Bethesda]

    Fallout 76 is Fallout, and it isn't Fallout at the same time. And for all the hype around the multiplayer, both friend and foe, it seems inconsequential most of the time. Just passer-bys on the street more often than not, it's there but it doesn't matter. It's a fun game, but I don't think it's going to be a timeless classic I return to time and time again years from now once I feel I've had enough.

    It's a different beast of a game, and for that we have plenty of reasons to be excited and nervous. [3 Hour Impressions]

    Fallout 76 surprisingly works, it just feels a little too much like Bethesda have managed to create a multiplayer sandbox and are waiting for the players to roleplay and fill in the blanks for one another. If they can keep people incentivised in playing in the world with more than just getting better at simply killing and surviving in it, then this could be the game that takes many people by surprise as the go-to co-op game.

    Great, fun game, that takes a break from the normal Fallout games. It has some bugs, like all the Fallout games do.

This game is fun, but not without some hiccups. Bethesda came out with a game that is a fun mix between Fallout and a survival game. I played about 20 hours in beta and the one major thing I noticed is that the game doesn't really start until you get out of the starting area and really start to see the world. I'd say hit level 5 and it will change. But level 10 I think is really when it starts.

    I'd say instead of reading these negative reviews (the fallout community has been pissed that Bethesda decided to listen to their requests for a multiplayer fallout) do your own research. Find a friend that plays or watch a streamer. Have your own opinion and don't jump on the hate train that is the gaming community taking a dump on anything that isn't exactly an already existing experience.

    Yikes... Bethesda what the hell happened here.

    The GUI - While it was an obvious port from controller, in previous Fallout's it was still manageable but in Fallout 76 it's a mess and absolutely frustrating experience. (especially when building...)

    The graphics - The FOV is incredible small, they could of increased this slightly, i get they need all the extra FPS they need (especially for consoles) but that's kind of ridiculous.

    Gaussian blur everywhere, you'd think your character requires prescription glasses or something...

    VOIP - Mic is active during character creation screen... so you can hear everyone raging at the GUI while in their character creating screen. (one player was scream F&%%%$$$k while smashing his keys)

    The game also uses holotapes instead of NPC's to deliver the story... but most of the time you wont be able to listen to them because of other players talking near you...

    The micro transactions are working though.... but you'll have to farm for hours if you want a cap, or pay 5$ of real world currency.

    What a mess... It's as if they handed you a hungry man meal and told you eat that in the busiest cafeteria... cold, no microwave.

    Meanwhile, New Vegas was the fillet minion we all yearn for and wanted more of... (maybe with coop options)

    - Ugly graphics
    - UI/UX awful, all items are lists of strings
    - Not enough settings: FOV, V-Sync
    - Fake PvP, it's really just PvE
    - 100500 bugs
