Ahead of Bethesda’s E3 press briefing, Todd Howard took to the Xbox stage to bring fans the first details for Fallout 76. According to Howard, Fallout 76 will take place before any of the other Fallout games. Howard also took the opportunity to announce that Fallout 76 will be the largest Fallout game to date, that it takes place in West Virginia and has a map four times the size of Fallout 4’s.
Judging by the footage shown, it looks as though Fallout 76 might not be the survival spin-off fans have theorized it would be. However, whether or not it’s truly a mainline entry in the series has yet to be confirmed.
