  • Summary: Fallout 76 is the online prequel where every surviving human is a real person. Work together – or not – to survive. Under the threat of nuclear annihilation, you’ll experience the largest, most dynamic world ever created in the legendary Fallout universe. Reclamation Day, 2102. 25 yearsFallout 76 is the online prequel where every surviving human is a real person. Work together – or not – to survive. Under the threat of nuclear annihilation, you’ll experience the largest, most dynamic world ever created in the legendary Fallout universe. Reclamation Day, 2102. 25 years after the bombs fall, you and your fellow Vault Dwellers – chosen from the nation’s best and brightest – emerge into post-nuclear America. Play alone or band together as you explore, quest, build and triumph against the wasteland’s greatest threats. Multiplayer finally comes to the epic open-world RPGs of Bethesda Game Studios. Create your character with the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. system and forge your own path in a new and untamed wasteland with hundreds of locations. Whether you journey alone or with friends, a new and unique Fallout adventure awaits. Use the all-new Construction and Assembly Mobile Platform (C.A.M.P.) to build and craft anywhere in the world. Your C.A.M.P. will provide much-needed shelter, supplies and safety. You can even set up shop to trade goods with other survivors. But beware, not everyone will be quite so neighborly. [Bethesda]

    If you are more of a single player gamer like me, don’t let the online nature of Fallout 76 put you off… it’s eminently playable as a single player experience. If you are put off by the issues mentioned at the start then maybe steer clear (or at least wait to see if patches address your concerns), otherwise I’d say grab the Deathclaw by the horns and jump in (but maybe wait till you have powerarmour to do that.).

    Regardless of how Fallout 76 transforms and mutates in the months to come, the present version is a brave, imaginative, and rewarding exploration, but its true glory is revealed among friends.

    I don't think I've ever had a game in the test that was so difficult to judge. It doesn't grip properly, but Fallout 76 makes me feel very contradictory. On the one hand, I really enjoy the game world, the exploration and all the stories told here. But I'm also someone who can get involved with this indirect way of telling stories. I can understand that for many this doesn't work without NPCs and dialogues. But I enjoy reading the different diary entries and listening to the holobands. On the other hand, the poor technical condition of the game really annoys me a lot. The poor performance despite average graphics quality is hard to understand. You can and must expect more from a modern game in 2018.

    In an effort to do everything, Fallout 76 fails to do any of it well enough to form an identity. Its multiplayer mindset robs its quests of all the moral decisionmaking that makes the series great, and all that’s left is a buggy mess of systemic designs that never seems to work together and regularly contradicts itself.

    Fallout 76 meant to change the very concept of the series, but turned out to be a complete disaster. The game is not only boring and empty, but sometimes simply unplayable.

    Fallout 76 could have been appealing. With its massive open-world, rewarding exploration and some interesting quests, it fails to be a good game because of too many game-design mistakes and technical issues.

    I dreaded every hour I had to keep playing Fallout 76 for review. As soon as the game was beginning to teeter on fun or interesting, a bug or a frustrating gameplay design element would quickly remind me that the game was otherwise.

    Fallout 76 is my favorite in the series and I've played every one of them. I get to live my anarcho-capitalist dreams with my friends. It's awesome!

However it can reconnect to a new one fairly quickly without hassles. The music is unexpectedly fantastic. The gameplay is very versatile to how you want to approach it, barring some moments where doing things alone is not really the sane thing to do. The approach to PVP while having some glaring flaws, mostly does what it is designed to do and does it well. The story is very subdued with the player deciding on how to approach it, even skipping vast portions of it if so inclined. An interesting take to be sure, but makes the story feel lackluster. The most unenjoyable thing is the lack of human npc's whatsoever. When they tease you about finding someone living, makes you want it even more badly. The entire worlds vibe is thrown off by the lack of them. Expand

It seemsFallout 76 is not what I expected from my initial purchase. The game seems like it is a last gen title. A downgrade not an upgrade. It seems bethesda knows only how to make single player games. Stick to their other titles. I have not even seen an official apology from bethesda but hopefully some ammends can be made as paying full price for a last gen game is not fair. Expand

For a AAA game company I expected *way* more. Bethesda fix your stuff! Minecraft or Rust are superior alternatives if your looking for a multiplayer experience. Just play it with 1950s music in the background. Expand

I try to claim a workstation and it instantly gets attacked, mobs get stuck below the factory and event is stuck. Not to mention the constant stuttering and **** gameplay feeling. GG, **** scam., Expand
