What even is it?
Fallout is one of those weird stories that branches off its storyline like a tree.
So far we have had games in several states Including Nevada, the boston commonwealth, Washington DC and from what we know now, vault 76 is in the greater virginia area. Will this be a game that takes place before the events of Fallout 3?From the trailer, we see that the vault is celebrating its 25 year wait period…where the dwellers can leave. If you have followed the games since at least fallout 3/NV, you know that vaults like vault 11 were left “contaminated” and vault-tec let radiation seep in for an experiment. Those dwellers eventually rotted to the bone and became ghouls.
We know from lore and character dialogue that vault 76 is a “control vault” that was unaffected from the outside world and actually opened on time. What this all means is, the surface will look much different and many factions we know wont exist. I feel vault 76 can possibly be similar to EDS-Online and some time of mmorpg fallout game. This can work because A-Fallout is already an RPG, B-Imagine going on a raid with your friends to kill a legendary deathclaw similar to boss fights in EDS-Online, and C-In the end its a bethesda game so they wont make huge changes to the franchise.
When will we get more info on the game?
We have seen many games announcement these past weeks. BFV saw a 1hr release. BO3 saw 5 trailers 2 weeks ago and a gameplay demo at an event. Now we get a Bethesda game weeks before E3??? What will E3 have to announce at this point?? Anyway, my point is, we have a lot of games that are coming out and if Bethesda wants to compete, they should make this game “Spin off or not” really good as they did with Fallout 4(I don’t care if you hate Fallout 4). Fallout:New Vegas was a spin off of the main series and was by far the greatest fallout of all time. I feel with 76, they will release more info at E3 and in the coming weeks so be on the lookout for new and info. I will be posting an update to any news that comes out.
