  • 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]

    Despite some very annoying bugs that absolutely need to be addressed, the game is both a wonderful online experience and an underrated solo adventure if you enjoy the exploration aspect of games such as No Man’s Sky.

    Though it suffers from graphical issues and bugs, as well as unsatisfying combat, Fallout 76 is fun nonetheless, and the experience is only enhanced by cooperating with other players.

    Underneath the extremely rough and laggy exterior, Fallout 76 has the makings of a great and entertaining game. To some, the damage may have already been done and the appeal may have already worn off, but with Bethesda’s level of support, the game has potential to grow into something much more than it currently is.

    Forcibly pushing players together in order to tackle the later main quests isn’t the experience fans wanted, nor is a PvP system that requires consent before it really kicks off, regardless of where you are.

    Fun to play with friends, not so much on your own. There's potential here, though a huge load of bugs manages to annoy and frustrate the player, leaving him or her with the impression that this full-priced game is far from a finished product. Shame.

    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.

    The most positive thing I can say about Fallout 76 is that a train wreck of this magnitude might finally yank Bethesda – a company that gets away with too much – back to reality. Maybe it’s finally time to update that engine. Maybe it’s not a good idea to slap the Fallout name onto a game that isn’t fit for release and expect it to go over well.

The world is rich and huge, challenging enemies, smart AI, and a sense of realistic survivability. The perk card system is a great twist on the previous perk system. The gun modification system has been greatly improved and is more rewarding. The CAMP feature is fun, creative, and relaxing. The story and quests are actually clever thought out and more indepth than what one would think at first look. And the community is friendly, helpfull, and overall what a good community should be like. Theres room for imporvements of course, but all games have that. If it isn't it right now, the game surely will be a huge success after a few updates. Defeiently a hit. Expand

Is it a perfect game? No but what game is? yes there are some bugs and technical issues but that's to be expected form this type of game at launch. If you don't want to play Multiplayer fallout then go back and play fallout 4 but quit hating on this one because it's not Fallout 5. Expand

    I have to admit, Bethesda, you did a decent job with this game. i don't know what all the hate is about surrounding this game. The characterI have to admit, Bethesda, you did a decent job with this game. i don't know what all the hate is about surrounding this game. The character creation is one of the best features, bringing back all of the settings from fallout 4 and adding more cosmetics. One of the main flaws is the campaign, it does not feel like it has much of a story, pretty bland and short also. Overall decent game Expand

    Extremely crappy game now! Cannot log into either servers (disconnected from server) before logging in. Very large updates, unable to log inExtremely crappy game now! Cannot log into either servers (disconnected from server) before logging in. Very large updates, unable to log in worth a damn and laggy as all get out. Bethesda totally jacked up the online franchise and most likely ruined this forever now. Multiple hacks/cheats found after every update, shutting down aspects of servers (such as vendors) which ruin the fame for EVERYONE. They need to permanently ban the cheaters once found out; however, they don’t do a thing cause all they care about is money....

    Don’t waste your money on this because they try to get you with micro transactions and the stuff you do buy, you can’t place at your camp (due to extremely low budget). You can finish the game very quickly to when it is just repetitive and gets very old.....

    Bethesda has still FAILED to address Cheater weapons that they know about and they don’t give a rats ass about fixing the game or any player reports. Biggest waste of money n time you’ll ever waste. I highly suggest stop playing and do some else very constructive. Oh, the updates are so damn big soon it’ll be the ONLY game on your system....can’t fix stupid or lazy.....

    This is not a Fallout game. This is far, far from a Fallout game.

    Filled to the brim with bugs and completely soulless, Bethesda somehow managed to take every single thing that makes Fallout Fallout and slapped the series name on this piece of garbage product in order to capitalize on microtransactions.

    The next Bethesda game better be a singleplayer masterpiece, or I simply won't buy their games anymore. It saddens me to see the Fallout franchise take a step in every direction but the right one.

There is literally nothing but an empty world with repetitive enemies in it. Be bored alone, or play bored together with a friend. Not quite sure exactly where the enjoyment is meant to come from. It's not on steam because the developers/publishers didn't want the convenience of refunding to be available to consumers. If this is the future of games, I don't want it. Expand
