Might not see mutations, but perhaps escaped Vault experiments in the vein of Deathclaws?
Do we have verification that Vault 76 actually opened 20 years after the war? IIRC, most of the vaults were supposed to operate on about that timescale. Running as long as they did in any of the Fallout games wasn't intended of any of them.

Well, it seems like the vault and everything in it was in pretty good condition, contrasting what Vault 101 looked like after a few hundred years of habitation.
Wouldn't have Virginia as a whole been carpet-fucked with nukes?
Someone on the SV thread for this posted a screenshot of the Pipboy with the date visible; assuming that it's right and it's the date the game starts, it will have been 25 years and less than one week since the bombs fell (October 23, 2077 to October 27, 2102).

Virginia, yeah, as the HQ of the CIA, but West Virginia doesn't have anything particularly noteworthy there.
Again, not an official announcement, pinches of salt, but figured people would be interested:
Sources: Fallout 76 Is An Online Survival RPG — Jason Schreier, Kotaku
Most relevant bits:
Originally prototyped as a multiplayer version of Fallout 4 with the goal of envisioning what an online Fallout game might look like, Fallout 76 has evolved quite a bit over the past few years, those sources said. It will have quests and a story, like any other game from Bethesda Game Studios, a developer known for meaty RPGs like Skyrim. It will also feature base-building—just like 2015's Fallout 4—and other survival-based and multiplayer mechanics, according to those sources. One source cautioned that the gameplay is rapidly changing, like it does in many online “service” games, but that’s the core outline.

Huh, getting in on the multiplayer Survival genre, huh? Then again, there's no better place to do that kind of game than Fallout.
Well, there's any interest I had in the game destroyed.
Feels like they've missed the boat with online games.
I'm not dropping sixty so I can pay rent to play my game.
I don't get where you're getting the idea that there's going to be some sort of recurring fee to play the game. Sure they mention it's going to be like an online service game, but Fortnite, PUBG, Rust, and DayZ don't have any sort of subscription.
The teaser gets a 10/10. Would watch again. But I've no interest in online survival.
Still have to have a PS Plus subsciption if you want to do anything online.
Ah. See, I was just gonna get it on PC anyway. But the PS Plus subscription is also why I'm waiting for Monster Hunter World to come out on PC.
I think I'm actually more interested now than if they announced an actual new Fallout title. I don't like Bethesda's Fallout, it's a stripped down, superficial take on the old games; and FO 4 was a step back rather than forward like FNV.
A survival game in this setting could be pretty cool, and I don't need to have any false hopes that it'll be closer to its roots; it's a spin-off like Tactics back in the day, it doesn't have to be.
I'm in the very disinterested by online survival camp. Like, that holds no appeal to me.
"Online" almost invariably leads to "Some asshole ruining your game just because."
So my friend decided that the game was going to be a FO3 remaster and said if he was wrong he'd drink a bottle of Tabasco sauce.

Poor guy. Reminds me of the time I downed a jar of spicy salsa. Not fun times. Hope the nether flames don't get him too bad.
Heh,the Fallout sub has returned to life,neat
If it's an online survival, then I wonder how Chris Avellone is involved - apparently he's attached to this?
Damn, we gotta wait 11 days to find out!
Fall Out: Survive. Tactical Apocalypse Action.
I'm curious to see where this goes, but I probably won't be playing it.
Can't wait to see people bunny hoppy past in T-45 whilst building rows of turrets.
