The next big game from Fallout developer Bethesda Game Studios is Fallout: 76, the company announced today, and the studio hasn’t yet said what it is, but we hear it’s an online game of some sort.
When Bethesda announced Fallout 76 with a teaser trailer this morning, promising more information at E3, it was easy to assume that the new game would be a traditional single-player role-playing game.
But Fallout 76 is in fact an online survival RPG that’s heavily inspired by games like DayZ and Rust, according to three people who knows more than you and I.
Fallout 76 is said to retain Fallout 4’s base-building and will feature a range of other, currently unspecified, multiplayer mechanics. It’s reportedly being developed by Bethesda’s main Maryland team, responsible for the likes of Fallout 4 and Skyrim, and at the company’s new Austin branch, formerly BattleCry Studios.
