Following a cryptic teaser only 24 hours before its reveal, Bethesda has announced the next entry to its Fallout role-playing game (RPG) franchise. "Fallout 76" is a new experience for console and PC, exploring events hundreds of years before 2015's Fallout 4. Highlighting inhabitants of Vault 76, the game looks to explore the Wasteland from a new angle during early post-war years.
Listings for Fallout 76 have now surfaced across several major U.S. retailers, with preorders already accepted for the title on Xbox One and Windows PCs. Securing a copy of the game currently costs $59.99, entitling buyers to its standard edition upon release. Amazon Prime subscribers also receive a 20 percent discount when purchasing through the site, dropping its retail price to $47.99. Listings are paired with a December 31, 2019 release date, though this is almost certainly a placeholder until firmer details arise.
With little known beyond its title, it's likely best to hold that preorder for now. While we assume Fallout 76 is a new role-playing experience, Bethesda is yet to even confirm a genre – let alone its launch window. However, if you're dying to get your next Fallout fix, check out the links below to lock down a copy for yourself.
Fallout 76 is on track for a full unveiling at Bethesda's E3 2018 Showcase on Sunday, June 10 at 9:30 PM ET (6:30 PM PT / 2:30 AM UK time).
