Today, Bethesda shared more details about Fallout 76's nuclear weapons. While veterans of the series might recognize them from Fallout 4, they're quite different in a multiplayer setting. For example, now you can find launch codes, and use ballistic missiles on fellow survivors or pesky mutants to gain rare irradiated resources.
As expected, the publisher released a hilarious "vintage" video detailing nuclear weapons and how they affect gameplay. While the video features a lot of exaggeration, normal players will mostly come across launch codes by killing enemies. However, sometimes launch codes are incomplete so you'll have to work with others to find a complete set in order to trigger a weapon. Communicating with other players is necessary if you have a common enemy.
Fallout 76 is expected to launch on November 14, 2018, starting at $59.99 on Xbox One and other platforms. 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 emergency gameplay.
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 complex structures. It's unclear how this single-player option works because, supposedly, "every other character you encounter is a real player."
