Today, Bethesda released new footage for Fallout 76. While most of it was showcased during E3 2018, there are some sections which we haven't seen before. Fallout 76's gameplay looks absolutely breathtaking. The game is definitely a considerable improvement over Fallout 4 in the technical sense. It features sixteen times the detail and you can even view distant weather systems across the map. There are six distinct regions to explore which have their own look and feel. Apart from that, the creatures vary as well. For example, you may encounter a giant sloth in one locale and a deadly mutated bat in another. Both of them present unique challenges and there are specific ways to take them down.
All-new graphics, lighting and landscape technology brings to life six distinct West Virginia regions... From the forests of Appalachia to the noxious crimson expanses of the Cranberry Bog, each region offers its own risks and rewards.
Even though Fallout 76 is entirely online, it isn't a massively multiplayer online game. At any given time you'll be playing with dozens of people, not thousands. It's similar to titles like Anthem and Destiny 2. However, if you don't like playing with other gamers, you can also experience the title on your own. However, it's much easier if you have help, especially when it comes to gathering resources and building.
Fallout 76 isn't a hardcore survival game like Ark: Survival Evolved or Conan Exiles. Bethesda's Todd Howard called it "softcore survival" but it's unclear what that means. It seems that the focus will mostly be on completing quests rather than mining resources or chopping down trees.
