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 is totally not deserving of a 4 and below. Bethesda is trying there best to fix the game as best as they can. I tell you what as well,Fallout is totally not deserving of a 4 and below. Bethesda is trying there best to fix the game as best as they can. I tell you what as well, this game is a hell of a lot of fun when playing with other people and also sometimes when your by yourself. The lack of human NPC actually somewhat makes the game feel a lot more depressing than the other fallout games. Whats more sad than a rebuilding world being torn down all because of a plague? The game at this point in time is buggy but Bethesda is fixing it. With handwork and determination this game can truly be a solid game. I highly recommend this game if your looking for a post apocalyptic survival game with RPG elements. Expand

    I am a loyal Fan. But I have been let down and feeling sad about the hours in the game. It has been a really disappointing experience inI am a loyal Fan. But I have been let down and feeling sad about the hours in the game. It has been a really disappointing experience in Fallout 73. I am a Dedicated Fan for many years.
    BUT this is just not acceptable. 1. Buggy 2. Bad graphics, 3. Boring gameplay, 4. Disconnected me several times from server. 5. Stupid and Bad challenges that aren't interesting, 6. NPC are brain dead and stupid. 7. Glitches Galore, 8. UI Broken, User menu poorly designed. 8. Tasks for the player are Wash Rinse, Repeat. 9. No variety in the tasks. You will not be doing anything different in objectives with no real purpose to continue. 10. Difficulties in-game needs balancing. Walking forever with no Purpose or Reason?? 11. microtransactions Really??? The high costs of cosmetics are shameful. Especially with the game be in such a poor, poor condition. This Game really could have had so much potential to be very good. But sadly and truthfully it is plainly a letdown. This is not AAA
    Game nor should it ever be priced at $60 in this condition. My mind is blown and I can't comprehend them releasing this in this way. If I was them I would be very embarrassed. You need to make this right for all your loyal fan base. I have all Fallout and your Games. I am thinking twice about whether I can support you in the future if you are releasing this garbage. I know you are better than this!!!!!
    Prove it to us you are up to it. But ultimately The game is a Grind and NO FUN!!! which is the number one reason I can not back the game!! My advice to you is
    LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMERS FEEDBACK!!!!
