There are few things in the world of video games that get people excited the way Fallout does. That’s not an opinion, I have access to the analytical data to prove it. There is something about the Fallout universe that draws players in like few other games can. With Fallout 76 being entirely online, it stands to reason that it will go toe-to-toe with Red Dead Redemption 2 for the title of biggest video game of 2018.

At E3 2018, Asif Khan, editor-in-chief of Shacknews, had a chance to speak with Pete Hines, Global Senior Vice President at Bethesda, about Fallout 76 and whether that game means we will or won’t get a Fallout 5 in the future. Hines also discusses what kind of a Fallout game Fallout 76 is and reminds us that every character you see in Fallout 76 is a real person. It’s interesting stuff that any Fallout fan should probably take a few minutes to watch.

        Yea, in fact it's one of the big reasons I DON’T want to play.

      Cautiously optimistic here. The online survival genre isn't typically my thing, but it sounds like they're doing a whole lot different from and beyond the standard survival loop.

      Plus, I spent a significant part of my childhood and youth growing up in West Virginia, so I have extra motivation to play.
