    This piece of shit looks horribad already. PvP, no story quests aside from stupid ambient notes, multiplayer events that will force some players to miss out because they don't have 24 hours per day to sit in front of their computer. Terrible and a blatant attempt to get players to clock in as many hours as possible. Multiplayer on a RPG, bad idea. GIVE US OUR FALLOUT BACK, YOU TALENTLESS HACKS!

    This is the selfish type of corporate mentality that kills gaming. How about I just don't pay a cent for your capitalist agenda and just pirate the game on a private server? Thank god for the free world of the Internet.

    I wouldn't even pirate the game (if I pirated games). I would only pirate good games.
    There are so many games out there that look fun and I never played because I can't afford them, why would I pirate this boring looking, walking simulator where you collect literal junk to build a camp that does nothing to the world around it...
    I already get bored of actual fun games like Terraria after playing them for a few days, because it is just collect stuff to build stuff.

    Looks like a community mod for Fallout 4. Design, gameplay and performance is all over the place in the digital foundry video footage of the gameplay i watched. This might be passable for a big open multiplayer game in 2010~, but is really awkward to see it now. I'm somewhat skeptical that they will attract the attention of the PUBG crowd with their lackluster action gameplay and combat mechanics.

    What's with these "Scorched", anyway? Are they direct survivors of the Great War? Like proto-ghouls? They seem to be coherent enough to use weapons, it looks like the player characters are basically raiders that suddenly swarm the peaceful lands of West Virginia that kill the poor mutated townsfolk that just want to survive. I mean, you run into their homes and villages to steal their stuff, and these poor souls look like they're in a lot of pain. With the super awesome Vault technology they could probably help them, but no, they just blast them to collect more rusty cans.

    They're not really ghouls, as they're infected with some fungus that connects them to hive mind or some shit. That fungus is also connected to Vault 76 wacky experiment, Overseer's trip out and the death of all humans in West Virginia.
    One of PR guys even mentioned that this great mysterious plot will take hours to solve and will take players all around the map. (Unlike that shitty game where you can complete it in 15 minutes by telling a boss to kill himself)

    So apparently the BoS is in this game? For the next Fallout game we should prepare a bingo-sheet of Bethsoft ideas.

    Eh, we know every game will involve BoS and super mutants, and maybe the Enclave if there's space on the disc.

    Children of Atom too. Confessor Cromwell stole his philosophy from some other group.

    And judging by the Government drop boxes, the Enclave is as well. One of the videos even shows off some non-PA Enclave gear.

    And don't forget the communists. I am surprised that Bethesda did not put in Ghoulified Communist Soldiers.

    Oh wait, the potential Chinese market...

    As far as potential for laugh-ability and memes, I kinda hope so. What's there to really lose at this point?

    Ghoulified Communist Soldiers already confirmed Mama Dolce (where they are in FO3) is in FO76 too. It's Bethesdas POS.

    I remember seeing something like a Chinese robot in '76, something like the Operation Anchorage spider bots but with a conical top.
    I ain't too sure if they were a fake or not though.

    I hope Mama Murphy hopped up on Jet is the end game boss now.

    I recently watched some Fallout 76 "impression" videos. Most of them are obvious paid advertisement from Bethesda, however there were some interesting ones.

    The videos I'm coming across related to Fallout 76 that were not in some way sponsored by Bethesda Game Studios are mostly neutral or negative. Plus there is a great deal of grump being generated by newer fans about the lore, which to be honest I found actually rather surprising considering my overall experience with more recent inductees to the franchise.

    Who knows for certain; if this keeps up Bethesda may very well shit the bed with Fallout 76?

    This is them teetering on the edge of being a bigger company or not. They're becoming like Ubisoft or EA in my eyes. I know I've said it before around here but I really think that. They started a series that has grown very popular (The Elder Scrolls), they also grabbed IPs that are good brand recognition such as Fallout, Doom, Quake, and Wolfenstein. Also getting other AAA titles on the market like Dishonored, Prey, The Evil Within and trying with games like WET, Rage, Brink, and whatnot. They've been acquiring studios like Arkane, id, MachineGames, and Tango Gameworks alongside BGS and the new branches of BGS. Also, don't forget the rumors about Bethesda trying to acquire Human Head Studios.
    They even have had their own client for PC and have mobile games with success, a MMO, a card game and more.

    They're trying to big dogs. They're going big. Even if 76 flops, it probably won't stop this at all. The next Elder Scrolls could potentially have sales powers that intimidate other companies like RDR2 did last year (if you didn't know, apparently game releases were being moved around to step aside for RDR2 because rumor was it was set to release last fall).
