Bethesda studios has released a brand new teaser for their upcoming game, Fallout 76. This clip shows multiple shots of an empty vault with the song “Take Me Home, Country Roads” playing in the background.
First of all, this confirms a new Fallout game is on the way. For typical Fallout players they know that Vault 76 is one of many vaults throughout the games used to contain citizens from nuclear warfare. Vault 76 was built as a control group and its main purpose was to open back up 20 years after the bombs dropped. Vault 76, as said in the teaser, was meant to be a vault of people that would take on the duty of rebuilding civilization after the ‘Great War’.
Next is the gameplay, although we did not get any gameplay and won’t until E3 2018, many sources have claimed that it will be an online open world survival game. This definitely would be a first for the Fallout games seeing that the only Fallout online game that was planned to be released, Fallout Online, was cancelled due to a legal dispute. Three people who are very familiar with the project spoke out saying how it was a experimental Fallout game and will be taking risks by making it online. They have also mentioned that the game was a prototype multiplayer version of Fallout 4 but has evolved into a full game featuring building, story, and quests.
Did you happen to listen to that song that was playing in the background? Well, “Take Me Home, Country Roads” is a song about a man wanting to go home to West Virginia. Now to some this may not seem important, but Bethesda has always been great at hiding secrets in trailers so I believe that this is our first mention of the location of the upcoming game.
