A few hours before its official E3 presentation, Bethesda has offered us a sneak peek at Fallout 76.
Todd Howard appeared on stage during Microsoft’s E3 presentation in order to debut the new Fallout 76 trailer and speak a little bit about the game. During the presentation, Howard confirmed that Fallout 76 will be a prequel to all the other games, set in a time when civilians are first starting to emerge back out of the vaults and form settlements for the first time.
The game will be set in West Virginia, and the sprawling woods and mountains will form a world four times the size of Fallout 4. The trailer offered us a glimpse of this world, though most of the actual gameplay is still a mystery.
While there was no release date given for Fallout 76, Todd Howard had more good news for Fallout fans. Fallout 4, the most recent Fallout game, is now a part of Xbox Game Pass, meaning anyone who’s subscribed to Microsoft’s service can start playing the game right away as part of their subscription.
We’ll likely find out more about Fallout 76 later today, when Bethesda holds its E3 showcase.
