So, an announcement about some kind of 'new' Fallout game is likely to drop shortly:

https://kotaku.com/over-140-000-people- ... 1826397799

Initially my money was on a remaster of FO3 or NV; mostly because it's not been that long (relatively) since FO4 and you'd expect a new TES game to come first. However I notice the writer of that linked article says, "but from what we’ve heard, this is a new game, one that takes the series in a brand new direction" so maybe not. There are some theories about a full game version of the Fallout Shelter mobile game which would certainly be a 'new direction' so let's hope to god it's not something like that. I genuinely don't see this being a new actual proper Fallout game so I'm expecting to be disappointed here.

I'm always super excited for a new Fallout, but I have real ' new direction' concerns.

FO3 Remastered would be good in a way because people who've never played it--and who would potentially be put off by dodgy graphics of the original--could get a chance to experience it. Personally I'm not sure if I'd bother because it's the kind of game I don't tend to play twice despite how much I adored it. FO3 VR would definitely be a better fit than Skyrim VR but again I'm not sure it would be enough to suck me back in, and I'm not even sure I want to spend that amount of time with a VR headset on.

Tactics was pretty good. Brotherhood of Steel, on the other hand...

Anyway, here's something actually relevant to the thread. A teaser for the new game, called 'Fallout 76' has gone up and it says absolutely nothing; though something about it doesn't scream "proper Fallout game" to me:

It will be you rampaging around the wasteland with a nuclear afro in a funky starsky and hutch car.

The date on the computer in that trailer is 2102.

By comparison, the war takes place in 2077. The first Fallout is set in 2161/2, Fallout 2 is 2141, Fallout 3 is 2277, New Vegas is 2281, and Fallout 4 is 2287. So this is a very different timeline, one where it sounds like you can't hope to leave the Vault. I think it sounds more like a Fallout-Shelter-me-do than one of the traditional FPS RPGs we know and love.

Although:

http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Vault_76

"The Vault-Tec terminal in the Citadel lists Vault 76 as a "control" vault, with 500 occupants. The vault was designed to open 20 years after a nuclear war, and was among the seventeen known control vaults, meaning that it was used as a baseline to compare to experimental vaults. It is also mentioned in one of the alien captive recorded logs (no.13) recorded by Giles Wolstencroft, a Vault-Tec official who was abducted while inspecting the vault's construction site. In Fallout 4, the newsreader in the prologue mentions Vault 76 debuting in 2076 in honor of America's tercentenary when discussing Vault-Tec's plans to expand."

That would suggest it opened in 2097, five years before the game is set.

I played Fallout 3 and 4, but missed 5-75, do you think I will be able to pick up the storyline?

I don't think The Elder Scrolls Online has been very well received. Though I admit that I haven't read up on it in enough detail to know why.

I differentiate strongly between Co-op multiplayer and MMO. Very strongly.

That's fair. Taking on a super mutant camp or whatever with just people you'd invited would likely be fun. Personally I worry that it would end up with co-op only quests that are locked off to single players, which would suck. Though I'm still assuming it'll be Fallout: The Sims and all this will be academic.

I loved FO3 and all the DLC but didn't finish FO4. Didn't like the base building stuff and the main game wasn't as enjoyable.

I'm interested in what 76 will be as I think it needs a big change.

I liked the weather effects in FO4.

And the dog.

It's a match 3 game set in the fallout universe.

Fo reals.

This is the most monstrous thing you have ever said, and that’s saying something.
