The title marks an all-new direction for Bethesda's establishing post-apocalyptic role-playing series, allowing groups of survivors to explore, build settlements, and uncover secrets of West Virginia. It's a multiplayer experience which requires you to work together and form alliances.

I can't help but wonder how easy - given the engine and the multi-player nature of the game - it would be for them to add a campaign\story mode in. Or at least some NPC? Is this something that's incredibly difficult to do at a technical level, or is it purely something that they have decided they don't want to do? The same for local servers. Could you load the game up on a PC as a local server, and then connect to it with your client as if it were online but without it being available to other people, or would it require a massive overhaul? Purely hypothetical.
