Fallout 76 is set to be one of the big releases of the year and it will be the first online multiplayer game that Bethesda has produced.
All characters in the game will be actual players and it will be set in an open world version of West Virginia.
It is a narrative prequel to the previous games in the series and it is set in an alternate version of history.
Each player will be able to create their own character using the S.P.E.C.I.A.L system that has become a regular feature in the Fallout games, and it will be possible to play the game solo or with friends.
When is the Fallout 76 release date?
Fallout 76 will be released worldwide on Wednesday 14 November 2018.
Fans of the game can get access to a beta version of the game if they pre-order their copy.
How to pre-order Fallout 76
Fallout 76 is available to pre-order directly from the Bethesda website for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
When is the beta release date?
The Fallout 76 B.E.T.A (Break-It Early Test Application) is set to be released on Tuesday 23 October for Xbox One players, which will be followed by PC and PS4 on Tuesday 30 October.
