Bethesda is known for its edgy trailers, but the latest one for Fallout 76 might take the cake. It's quite bizarre and features actors causing mayhem in a surreal-looking post-apocalyptic wasteland. One lady is particular happy with machine guns as she's shooting hordes of mutants.
Since Microsoft has a marketing agreement with Bethesda, Xbox One players got access to the B.E.T.A on October 23, 2018. The B.E.T.A. begins for PC and PlayStation 4 players a week later on October 30. Just like many games nowadays, Fallout 76 features Xbox One X enhancements and possibly runs at native 4K resolution on the system like Fallout 4. The B.E.T.A. download is the full game, so you may need around 45 GB of space.
Fallout 76 is expected to launch on November 14, starting at $59.99. 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, and focuses on emergent gameplay.
If you don't like playing with other people, 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 complex structures. It's unclear how this single-player option works because, supposedly, "every other character you encounter is a real player."
