Fallout 76 Release and Special Edition

Fallout Shelter now on Nintendo Switch, PS4

Everything we know about 'Fallout: 76'

Don't believe me? How to wait in Fallout 4 is still one of the most popular articles on Shacknews in 2018, almost three years after it was originally published.

The game seems to start us out on the day that the vault opens, called Reclamation Day.

The game takes place in one of the most handsome states in the US.

Take a piece of the Wasteland home with the Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition. That's a massive world, with six distinct regions to explore that features cultural nods to West Virginia, where it takes place.

Set in post-apocalyptic West Virginia, it sees players take on the role of an occupant of Vault 76, one of the first to open following the nuclear apocalypse.

It's possible, even given this track record, that "Fallout: 76" will pay homage to the Appalachian region's unique history and traditions without stereotyping and minimizing the culture it depicts, and many in the game industry are hopeful that it will . Now, there are a few ways in which you may still be able to get a copy.

As a survival game, players were wondering how death would work in Fallout 76 and Todd Howard was keen to put this clearly out at the conference.

The big difference Howard is talking about is that each of the characters you will see in the game will be a "real person".

Similar to online survival games, other players you meet can be friend or foe - that's entirely up to them.

The cool thing about the base-building is you are not tied down to a single location as you can pack up and move your base anywhere that you want.

On launch on iOS, the Fallout Shelter became the top downloaded game in 48 countries and the top downloaded app of any kind in 25 countries. There is so much about Fallout 76 to get our teeth into that it was hard to narrow down to just 10 items.

It all sounds important, but then Bethesda dropped a bomb. Met with surprising success, the simulation game is now coming to even more devices, including the PS4 and, of course, the Nintendo Switch. But Bethesda knew that and they structurally built the game around that very fear. In 2017, Bethesda officials said that "Fallout 4" had surpassed "Skyrim" (which had sold 23 million copies) as its top all-time seller. Among the many features described by Todd Howard was one particularly destructive one; there are a number of nuclear missile silos scattered across Fallout 76's world map. This will be handled through C.A.M.P.s (Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform) that serve as the basis for your base.

But after surviving the nuclear attacks, what is in store for players?
