Today, during Microsoft's E3 2018 showcase, we got our first look at Fallout 76, the official prequel to the Fallout series.
Todd Howard was on stage during Microsoft's E3 2018 conference today to give us a brief look at what we can expect from the latest in the apocalyptic RPG series, and we got a brief look at the game ahead of Bethesda's showing tonight.
The game is set in the hills of West Virginia, hence the John Denver song and references scattered throughout its trailer and marketing materials, so it's going to make for an interesting addition to the saga. It's said to be four times bigger than Fallout 4, according to Howard, and the game's focus will center around rebuilding the world as best as humanity can after the bombs initially drop.
The wasteland looks much less awful in the prequel, of course, with a brief look at Power Armor, new monsters to look out for, cities to explore, and even airplanes.
We'll be here with additional information during Bethesda's E3 2018 showcase when it gets underway this evening, so make sure you keep it locked on Shacknews for additional information regarding all things E3 2018.
