E3 2018: Fallout Shelter Switch and PS4 Versions Announced

E3 2018: Fallout Shelter Switch and PS4 Versions Announced

Fallout 76 got an info blowout during Bethesda's E3 2018 press conference, as expected.

Fallout 76 is indeed an online-based game with RPG, survival, shooter and co-operative gameplay mechanics.

Bethesda Director and Executive Producer Todd Howard revealed details for the upcoming game at the 2018 Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, held at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Base building is a core element, however, allowing players to build wherever they want.

The game is set in the hills of West Virginia.

E3 2018: Tom Clancy's The Division 2 in Washington DC
The Division 2 raids and endgame content has been revealed by Ubisoft during its E3 2018 presentation. Tom Clancy's The Division 2 is slated to arrive on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on March 15, 2019.

Todd Howard came out onto the stage to talk about Fallout 76.

You can play the game single-player, if you want, but the idea is that every single person in the world of Fallout 76 is real - the emphasis is clearly on multiplayer. Progression will carry over to wherever you happen to play seamlessly. This always online title is set before the other games and has players emerging from their vault to explore the state of West Virginia.

However, the nuclear bombs may not be done falling, according to Howard. Once we find out what the players like, since we built a system to add content, we'll do that. Once you've agreed on a target with your comrades you can grab rare resources from the blast site, if you're kitted out to survive the fallout. Besides the regular release, fans of Fallout have placed pre-orders for the Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition aka Fallout 76 Collector's Edition in huge numbers. The game comes in a Tricentennial Edition Steelbook, a metal game case. Already available on Windows PC, iOS, Xbox One, and Android, Fallout Shelter hits the Nintendo Switch and PS4 today and will be free just like it is on other platforms. Typically, a beta occurs a month or two before release, so expect a Fallout 76 beta some time in September or October.
