Fallout 76: 10 Take-Aways From Bethesda's E3 Conference

Previous Fallout games have enjoyed extensive mod support, but as an online game with an inextricable multiplayer focus, the Fallout 76 situation wasn't so clear.

The Fallout franchise is one of those games that aren't exactly household names but have definitely amassed a faithful following to have been going for years, approaching two decades even. However, there is more to do than just surviving as Fallout 76 will feature quests for players to complete and brand new enemies to kill. It's unknown exactly how nuclear missiles will interact with the map; the trailer appeared to show an area struck by a missile to have been transformed into a heavily irradiated fallout zone filled with risky enemies and valuable resources. The short trailer is below, a longer 20-minute discussion from Bethesda at E3 itself is embedded farther along.

Base building from Fallout 4 returns, but is more flexible. Fallout 76 also features brand new graphics, lighting, and landscape technology. While we've had our guesses about what the game could be about, we now have all the details about the new game set in West Virginia. Of course, if you want to play by yourself, it's entirely possible to go solo through the entire game.

Trump says economic adviser Larry Kudlow has 'suffered heart attack'
It was not immediately known when Kudlow suffered the heart attack or what his condition was. Kudlow's wife, Judy Pond, told the Washington Post late Monday night that "he's doing fine".

Speaking strictly for myself, I'm uncertain about this iteration of the Fallout universe. First, they played the trailer we saw earlier at Microsoft's conference.

Then again, I simply may not be the target audience for this game. Also, with views such as the state capitol, Greenbrier and Shenandoah Valley, the game is essentially free publicity for the state. "You can build wherever you want".

If you are looking to pre-order the game, Bethesda announced a Collector's Edition that comes with a plethora of goodies.
