E3 2018: Fallout 76 Beta Announced, No Confirmed Release Date

E3 2018: Fallout 76 Beta Announced, No Confirmed Release Date

A few hours before Bethesda's own conference, the publisher took a moment at Microsoft's Xbox E3 briefing to give us the first look at the company's next big game: Fallout 76.

Game Director Todd Howard explained the advantages of the latest in the "Fallout" franchise being an online RPG.


It will have hand-crafted and procedurally generated dungeons. The game, which reportedly began as a multiplayer mode for Fallout 4, will supposedly feature quests and a story as well as base-building mechanics.

They didn't say much about it, but it's happening. Bethesda's free-to-play mobile title, developed by Behaviour Interactive, launched on PC in 2016 and then on Xbox One previous year. You do, however, also get a duffel bag, a steelcase, collectible (and paintable) figurines, bonus digital items, and a glow-in-the-dark Fallout 76 map. The accompanying press release mentions that it's now in pre-production.
