Can't wait to play this

It should be wiped or else you are giving a lot of people a significant advantage over the day 1 people. Is Bethesda trying to torpedo this after the failed E3 reveal? Everything they say just makes this game sound worse and worse. Keep the online-only crap real Fallout fans will wait for Fallout 5

It's an experiment first and foremost. I personally am disappointed they wheeled out Fallout to do it, but I do get their angle I guess - it's just not for me

It's a game nobody wanted and a game that doesn't have hype because they are tearing out everything that makes Fallout, Fallout while making it online only filling it with microtransactions and forcing you into PVP because there are no NPCs in a survival the only playstyle. Even they know it's a bad idea if they have to make you unkillable for the first 5 levels of the game.

Hey, I wanted this game :(

Have fun with your microtransactions and lootboxes on a $60 game.

I agree with you to be honest, but I think I'm realising that games are often made as investments first, and art second. I imagine Zenimax/Beth bigwigs see the likes of Fortnite and salivate at the potential returns.

I will say, however, you can actually find a lot of folk who are interested. They find the 50s retrofture aesthetic pleasing and cool, and online as a big plus. Now, as a fan of the originals and NV, I think the series is just being diluted and milked dry (the 50s thing was so minimal in F1&2), but I also realise I'm a fairly small proportion of Fallout fanbase, so maybe this is how it goes. More digestible, disposable and trendy might be the way forward!

Real Fallout fan here, I'm getting Fallout 76. I have FA3 and FA:NV collectors edition. FA3 remains the best FA ever made imo, and is still one of my all time favorite games.

Please do not go around saying "real Fallout fans" will not buy this game. That's a truly ignorant generalization.

Can we just get a release date for the BETA? By the time they announce it, it'll already be the launch date for the game itself. x_X
