  • 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]

    Fallout 76 takes a brave step forward in a risky multiplayer proposal, but due to its unclear intentions and a poor performance overall it will need time and effort to please its fans.

    Fallout 76 fails at many things, but its core gameplay still is fun and engaging. This is enough to keep you going, but it is not what you would expect from an online-based AAA, and even if all the bugs can be fixed, there are many things (combat, mission design, inventory system) that would be much harder to fix.

    Fallout 76 is fun to play; the simple loop of scavenging and exploration and crafting and progression works well when you’re in a group. Alone, it gets pretty old pretty fast - especially when dealing with bugs and glitches and performance woes. Ultimately it’s disappointing that the size and scope of the multiplayer doesn’t match the impressive West Virginia you get to explore.

    A fascinating world and several good ideas are ruined by lots of technical problems and some design choices that make Fallout 76 almost unplayable. When it works, it can really shine; but this happens very rarely at the moment.

    We tried so hard to like Fallout 76, but the game didn’t allow us to do it.
  6. I can’t recommend Fallout 76 to more than a handful of people. A niche few will still be drawn to it, perhaps out of curiosity, a completionist’s need to devour all things Fallout, or, like me, a morbid desire to simulate life after the end of the world. For everyone else, hold onto the hope that Bethesda learns a lesson from this failed experiment.

    There are no redeeming features to be found in Fallout 76, and I’m not even sure if it can be saved. Technical issues just make what’s a boring and soulless experience at its core into something that’s simply more of an abomination.

There are many bugs but this is a Bethesda game so sadly that is to be expected. I've played probably 15 hours including beta time and it has been one of the best game experiences I've ever had. Ignore the zero reviews, it's just entitled brats that are mad its not New Vegas 2. I will say playing with a group is way more enjoyable than playing solo. Expand

    Since for me it's still the same Fallout. I apologize for all not satisfied players, as I do not understand what their pritenziya! In all likelihood, the players "зажрались", i don't know how to translate it into English.
    Thank you for making the Fallout76 I was waiting for.
    Thank you for your work, СПАСИБО!

    Great graphics, solid crafting, reasonable blend of VATS for a real-time world, so much content both audio and written, fun variety in theGreat graphics, solid crafting, reasonable blend of VATS for a real-time world, so much content both audio and written, fun variety in the weapons. Sure I miss the NPC's, but I'm judging and scoring by what the game HAS and not what I (simply) like from the previous that is missing.

    I'm only level 12, but hooked and want to get through to find out about the Enclave, Brotherhood, Overseer etc...

As a fan of Fallout and Bethesda games I want to enjoy it, I just don't. While it is a great looking game, especially on the xbox one x, the world is just empty. I force myself to play it for a few hours and run into maybe two people? The quests are boring, go to x location, maybe fight something, and then listen to an audio recording. What makes a fallout game fun are the characters and the environment. I understand the idea that "we are the people" but all in all thats kinda dumb. The CAMP system from my understanding is supposed to be an improvement on the fallout 4 town system, it isn't. Outside of doing the quests required for it, I have found zero reason to spend any time doing CAMP stuff. Final word, its a bland, boring pretty mess. Expand

I have had items in my inventory disappear and i have been attacked by invisible enemies many times. The game feels empty and its just boring. This game is a joke and Bethesda has become a joke of a company. Expand
