  • 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.

    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.

It plays just like falloutStarted playing this morning, Honestly Not sure what is up with the comment section....The games is pretty decent. It plays just like fallout 4 honestly. I would not have fun playing this game by myself, you really need friends to make this sort of game fun. This is the kind of game you joke around and goof off with while playing with your friends. Also for people complaining about bugs....this is a Bethesda game. What did you honestly expect? Also how many games are honestly perfect on release anymore. I have played a lot of MMORPGS over the years and that's what this is basically. If you don't like fetch quests, running long distances, lots of text to read if you want story of any kind, then do not play. I give it a solid 9 out of 10 though. Expand

Mit der online Funktion hat sich Bethesda kein Gefallen getan, die Wackelpuppen haben ihren Reiz verloren( sind nun wie beliebige Stims die 1h irgendeinen Wert pushen) das V.A.T.S. ist nutzlos. Das zuhause was man sich bauen will wird nicht mehr als ein rudimentärer Schuppen dank der Begrenzung und das, was das Spiel mit ausmachte, das sammeln von Zeug, ist auch so gut wie unmöglich da man durch die Begrenzung eigentlich ständig am Limit ist. Außerdem gibts nur dumpfe Roboter und Holos...ich muss mich nach der kurzen Zeit schon fast zwingen das Spiel zu zocken und selten taten mir die mehr als 40€ mehr weh als dafür.... Expand

    Han eliminado todo rastro de todo lo bueno que tuvo esta franquicia, y le han metido con calzador todo lo que nunca debió tener.
    Sumado a la habitual cantidad de bugs (marca de la casa), problemas, micropagos, el abandono de la plataforma Steam y el nefasto servicio postventa ofrecido por Bethesda, lo convierten sin duda en lo peor que recuerdo.
    No vale ni un céntimo del dinero que se paga por él.
    De ahí que la rebaja en el precio sea ya escandalosa. Pero la gente no es -tan- tonta, el juego no va a remontar, y me alegro. Nunca debió nacer.
    Merece menos nota que cero.

    I'm huge fan of Fallout games and I even liked FO4 with all issues that came with it, but Fallout 76 is ABSOLUTELY garbage, this is unfinished game, broken af, I cant believe they actually released it with its current status, this is not even an alpha. the animation is absurd, textures probably worse than Fallout 3, guns in this game feels awkward... this game deserve 0 score or even worse!
