  • 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

    The rabid reviews of the internet mass do not really review this game. The negative hype train is an express and will not stop to even playThe rabid reviews of the internet mass do not really review this game. The negative hype train is an express and will not stop to even play the product.
    This is Fallout 4's end game with a buddy and more to do (note I said END GAME).
    If you finished fallout 4 and stopped paying then this may not be the game for you.
    If, like me, you played many more hours building settlements and exploring for those little odd details and stories then you will love it.
    Add in the detail that I can play with my friends and it is like a nice Rust game, without quite so many trolls.
    To be honest I I am probably more excited about what they do next rather than what we have now, as in these early days it is hard to tell. Having played the game for over 20 hours so far I am having lots of fun. FUN, remember that word?

All of these are new, the concept is new. You have to understand how complicated this was for them, and they took the risk. I appreciate what they did, and am okay with paying the cost. The game will get better, just like No Man's Sky. I'm in it for the long haul. I can't give it a 9 or a 10 only b/c I didn't see much outside of just a sandbox game, but the concept is what sells. I think the concept gets it an 8, outside of the to be expected issues, which are no different than what Hello Games encountered with No Man's Sky. And btw NMS is incredible now... Expand

    This is complete crap!

    I've been waiting 20 minutes on the loading screen to connect to the server. After I connect because of desync and replication issues with the server, I get killed. Have to wait another 5 minutes on the loading screen to respawn.
    I go into a building and get stuck on a pile of trash so I need to fast travel somewhere...

    Opening the map freezes my computer for 20 seconds.. Sometimes the audio just goes missing and it all comes back to life like the whole 5 minutes compressed in 10 seconds (shat my pants I did),

    This game is a technological nightmare! It's an old and outdated engine and I am running the game on a 2017 high-end pc with the last gen i7, a 1080ti and m2 ssd... WHAT THE ACTUAL F(_)CK?!

    What is this, bethesda? You told us there would be no paid content in the game. But you add a damn subscription for 8,400 rubles. Are you serious?!

A 20-30 minute quick games where levels carry on through each time you play in a Fortnite style of gameplay. Players would do the character creation, follow the story from emerging from the vault and then get dropped into a menu (or GTA open world) where they could join quick matches. QM's like Fortnite or PUGB would drop your characters off and you would create bases, team up and kill each other while the NUKES went off. Each round would be under half an hour.

    I was excited.

    I played the BETA and got this empty sandbox with 0 NPCs.

    I see Bethesda employees are all over metacritic, giving it perfect score while listing bugs, bad graphics, bad pvp. Hilarious.
