The game is a dynamic, evolving experience that's being built with new rendering and lighting effects that allow for 16 times the detail and visibility of far-away weather distance.
The game seems to start us out on the day that the vault opens, called Reclamation Day. We finally got a release date. "Fallout 76" will have the largest map of any of the games in the series.
According to Howard, the main crux of the story revolves around a quest given to you by your Overseer.

Todd Howard announced during his appearance that Fallout 4 is now available on Xbox Game Pass. However, unlike other so-called "hardcore" survival games, death is not meant to be an impediment to enjoyment. Not only that, but the developers delivered on their promise of an in-depth reveal of Fallout 76 and for the most part fans are interested in seeing their much smaller take on the "MMO" genre.
Todd Howard, king of Bethesda Game Studios, stole the stage at the conference as he took a deep look at the game, both at its lore and mechanics.
Unique to Fallout 76 are nuclear armaments that can be completely controlled by players.

Base building from Fallout 4 returns, but is more flexible. Players can work with or against each other as they try to survive, but a solo mode will still be available. Additionally, dying will not cause you to lose your character or the items they are carrying, which should severely limit griefing. But beware, because your base could be attacked by any number of things at any time. Powered by your Pip Boy, it will certainly be odd to play a Fallout without V.A.T.S.
