what do we know about fallout 76
In this exclusive interview with Bethesda's very owner, Todd Howard, we learn much about the philosophy behind Fallout 76, why this game came to be, what are the core differences between Fallout 76 and other survival games and how "softcore" it really is. Reporters from NoClip spent almost 6 weeks prior to the reveal of the game at E3 2018. Among many gameplay related things, we will learn how Battlecry studios became part of Bethesda development machine, and how their experience in multiplayer games made became the foundation of the game development process. We will also learn why Fallout 76 is so big and how the process of "shrinking down" an entire state of West Virginia proceeded and how rich folklore of this backwater foresty state influenced the game.
We chose West Virginia because it was still east coast but isn't really touched because nobody is going to nuke West Virginia.
