    Unsure how I feel about it being an online only game. I'm definitely not excited about the idea.

    Ok, well that sounds better. I'll move it from a definite no, to a probably no.

    It needs Dark Souls style game invasion. Pop into someone's wasteland, find and attack their base and nick their stuff. Would be epic! One of my biggest gripes with the base building in FO4 was nobody got to see it and it was never properly put to the test by invaders. Imagine manning the walls with a bunch of buddies, fending off evil goddamn looters and watching your carefully placed traps doing their job :D

    Wish this was a proper SP game. I much prefer good quality well written single player over mp any day. Only play Fifa online. I think my opinion would differ I played over headsets but just prefer to kick back when I game.

    Well I guess we know why it's called fallout 76 and not fallout 5 now.

    It might be fun, I guess it depends on how hard it will be to find someone's camp and nuke it.

    Anyone else pre ordered the power armour edition? I'll sell a couple of things to pay for it but looks pretty good! Can't wait for the game, To me building in 4 was pointless but now it's multiplayer I may go deeper into the system.

    I'm still not sure about this.... No human NPCs. All other humans you encounter will be other players.

    I feel this is just some sort of spin-off... A deviation from the main games. With that in mind I'm expecting a fallout 5 next year.

    I’d say everything you need to know about FO76 is in here, it’s close to spoilers it’s that detailed.

    5 is a prime candidate for next gen imo.

    Is this going to be as detailed and as big as a proper Fallout game?

    Honestly watch the video above I posted, it will answer most of the questions you have right from the dev teams mouths.

    Slowly winning me over. It still seems very complex though.

    I'm an absolute Fallout fanboy but I just can't get excited for an online game :(

    I am not a fan of online games either. With the map being as big as it is though, there is a good chance you won't bump into any other players. As long as I can still play it in 'single player mode' at some point, and get quests etc then I will give it a look.

    From what I've seen though the only other characters in the game are other players. There are no "NPCs" as such.

    That is one of the downsides. If it still plays like a Fallout game though (Minus the NPC's) then I will give it a look. Might watch someone play a bit first i.e ManyATrueNerd on Youtube before I decide.

    I know that would be quite “realistic” as it it is how I imagine it could be, it would be a very lonely existence.
