Despite having a powerful presence during Microsoft's E3 press conference which revealed a new trailer and confirmed the post-apocalyptic title's settingFallout 76 managed to give a yet another impressive performance during Bethesda's E3 press conference. This time, however, Bestheda's Todd Howard managed to give fans key details about the upcoming action role-playing title.

As seen below, Fallout 76 aims to impress with a reveal that the protagonist is awaiting Reclamation Day when the vault dwellers are set to emerge into the wasteland after 25 years underground. Howard also reveals that the overseer sends the character on a quest through six different regions, with a focus on the lore of West Virginia. Most notably, Howard revealed that Fallout 76 was online-only but beatable in single player.

Fallout 76 releases November 14, 2018, which means fans only need to wait a couple more months before getting their hands on this newest title. Beginning with the PC waking up in the vault, this trailer definitely highlights the gameplay of Fallout 76. Check out the official gameplay teaser here:

Many fans may be worried, considering Howard confirmed the game was online-only, but he did also mention that it was still the same Fallout experience for those who prefer to complete games solo. This move, however, does alienate the company's numerous offline fans, as they will be unable to complete the game without an internet connection.

Although Fallout 76 has been a real showstopper today, hopefully even more information is learned going forward. Considering the game is four times larger than Fallout 4, fans of the longrunning franchise had better be ready to return to the wasteland. But Bethesda fans may also be happy to know that the company is looking forward to the next couple of years, as the company ended its E3 conference with a small tease that displayed The Elder Scrolls VI. 

Fallout 76 releases November 14, 2018, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
