Title: Fallout 76

The Vault-Tec terminal in the Citadel lists Vault 76 as a "control" vault, with 500 occupants. The vault was designed to open 20 years after a nuclear war, and was among the seventeen known control vaults, meaning that it was used as a baseline to compare to experimental vaults.

Trailer suggests setting of 25 years after bombs when the fallout had settled, West Virginia.

Breakdown of the gameplay reveal. Might be fun to get a group together (depending how the multiplayer works), but shoot-on-sight PvP will always be annoying. Note that there are bars for food and water, showing a survival aspect.

As long as other players don't effect your game I say kool. If someone nukes somewhere it should only effect them I'd hope.

Noclip documentary about fallout 76 released, 18minutes in starts talking about gameplay. Some may consider there to be some spoilers, so be warned.

Still on the fence here after watching the documentary. Its still wide open to griefing, but I'll wait and see how Bethesda are going to handle that before deciding, fallout with friends could be great fun if done right.

Noclip makes some good documentaries, if you havent seen the lead up doco to this about the history of Bethesda games, it's also worth a watch.

I believe they mentioned you can play with friends in a group of possibly 4 (just going by memory) - I expect everyone else on the map/instance will be randos

Hopefully like Destiny. See them and can kill enemies but doesn't effect you.

  • PVP is completely optional. A player must accept your challenge before you can fight each other.
  • It is possible to kill other players without challenging them, but it is difficult and makes you a WantedMurderer. In what is perhaps the best anti-griefing measure Iíve seen in a game, this places a bounty on your head, makes you visible on every playerís map, and doles out the bounty reward from your own pocket. You can be a troll, but at least youíll be a broke troll.
  • If a player kills you, you are given the option to block them, seek revenge for double reward, or simply keep playing.

Yeah seems like a good way to implement it!

Sounds kinda like the division (rogue agents) or Elite Dangerous (killing other players puts a bounty on your head for others to collect). It wont completely stop griefing as it still happens in both the games I just mentioned, but it'll keep it from becoming a total sh*t show, especially with the money coming out of your own pocket if you kill someone and have your bounty collected, that part I like. Means the trolls will have to work harder to keep up.

Hopefully it's implemented well. Things can sound good on paper but still be totally worthless. Elites crime and punishment system is broken as fuck

Hopefully fallouts system is tight but fair if there's a mistake by a player..

Not like elites where the other night I was running passenger missions in my unshielded anaconda and didn't realise I had a wanted passenger on board.. The base didn't like that and opened fire, I got a 1200cr fine (bugger all given I'm earning about 12-15m per run) but then when I suck into the system and paid the fine I was transported 300+ly away to a prison.. Took be half an hour just to get back to the system.
