Fallout 76‘s multiplayer element is forcing the change of a few classic game systems, including how players will use stealth.

A video was recently posted to the official Fallout Twitter account, in which project lead Jeff Gardiner offered a brief answer about how stealth will work in the upcoming sequel. According to Gardiner, crouching in Fallout 76 will remove your dot from the open-world mini-map, allowing players to sneak around others unnoticed.

Another of Fallout’s single-player mechanics returning in this multiplayer iteration is the series’ iconic V.A.T.S. system. In previous games, this targeting system would freeze time in order to line up a shot on an enemy’s weak points. V.A.T.S. in Fallout 76 will still help players target certain body parts of hostiles, but as freezing time isn’t possible in an open-world multiplayer game, the function has been updated to operate in real-time.

Fallout 76 is slated to launch November 14th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game will have a beta go live before launch, coming first to Xbox One.
