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.

[up][up][up]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).

[up][up]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:

When Bethesda announced Fallout 76 with a teaser trailer this morning, promising more information at E3, it was easy to assume that the new game would be a traditional single-player role-playing game. But Fallout 76 is in fact an online survival RPG that’s heavily inspired by games like Day Z and Rust, according to three people familiar with the project.

[...]

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.

[up][up]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.

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.

"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.

He delivered.

If it's an online survival, then I wonder how Chris Avellone is involved - apparently he's attached to this?
