Vault 76 has a role in the games' mythology, and today's Nerdist News is explaining why the new Fallout teaser reveals more than you think. One of Fallout 4's biggest additions to the series was a base-building mechanic - and Rust is a survival game that's very much about building defensible buildings and surviving the onslaught of the wilderness and other players. Check out promo images below. With E3 only a week away, it's more than likely EB Games has received information from Bethesda ahead of time. In addition, they are also live streaming on Twitch with a puppet of the Vault Boy now asleep. They've released a trailer for it, but it doesn't really explain much. The developer hasn't listed any pre-order bonuses for the game, but we'll keep you updated on that front.
Named Fallout 76 rather than Fallout 5, it could be that this game occupies a more experimental function within its parent franchise, just as 2010's Fallout: New Vegas and 2015's Fallout Shelter did. We don't know a whole lot about Fallout 76 just yet, but here are a few things fans of the series should know as we push toward Bethesda's show next month.
This is one of our favorite Fallout 4 mods and one that should consider if you're exhausted of wasting time scrolling through hundreds (many of them worthless) of items. In recent years, the publisher has revealed a great number of titles, which includes Fallout 4, Prey, and Wolfenstein II-and they plan to keep that up for this year's show. Due to this, Vault 76 was meant to be opened 20 years after the nuclear war. Fans and journalists alike took random guesses as to what Bethesda's newest title could be, but when Fallout 76's name was announced the previous talk was quickly silenced. Finally, we see the Vault Dweller gearing up in a shiny Vault 76 suit and strapping on a PIP Boy, which indicates the dweller is about to leave the vault. With the teaser showing only the interior of the vault, some have wondered if the game will take place entirely here.
Three sources familiar with the project tell Kotaku's Jason Schreier that Fallout 76 - which was revealed during a live stream on Wednesday - "is in fact an online survival RPG that's heavily inspired by games like DayZ and Rust".
