An essential part of Fallout’s visual identity is that it’s heavily based on Americana, but concept artist Fernanders Sam wanted to explore what other parts of Bethesda’s nuke-blasted world would look like.
West Virginia is not just a fantastical dystopian hellscape depicted in the trailer for Fallout 76. It’s a real place in the real dystopian nation of America! Thanks to Fallout 76, the state is now seeing interest from actual tourists.
Bethesda Softworks is named after the city in Maryland. Tim Rogers has been to that city, so it only makes sense that we sent him to the Bethesda booth at E3 2018. There was demons, carnival games, and a lot of VR. You’re probably not at E3 but fret not. Tim checked out everything that Bethesda was rocking on the show…
Fallout 76 will have nukes. Provided players find the keys, they will be able to fire these nukes off whenever they please. This gameplay feature, announced at last night’s Bethesda press conference, is presumably meant to encourage player-created drama in the upcoming online survival game. It’s also the clearest…
Bethesda capped off the second day of E3 press conferences by showing a bunch more Fallout 76, announcing Doom and Wolfenstein sequels, and teasing The Elder Scrolls VI as well as a new sci-fi game called Starfield.
After a couple of teases and some inside information, we just got our first real look at Fallout 76, an upcoming survival RPG from Bethesda.
Todd Howard took the stage to give us another tease of the upcoming Fallout 76 during Microsoft’s E3 press conference today. It didn’t answer many questions, but it did look pretty.
Fallout: New California, a New Vegas mod that’s been in development for nine years, will finally come out this October. Its creators announced the news with a new trailer and said that in the meanwhile they’ll be adding more side quests to it as well as running a beta starting in July.
When Fallout 76 was announced yesterday, half the world immediately thought “Heck yeah, new Fallout.” But the other half—a more insidious and frankly intolerable one that includes noted individuals such as me—started cracking jokes about Soldier 76 from Overwatch. Then came the fan art.
When Bethesda announced Fallout 76 with a teaser trailer this morning, promising more information at E3, it was easy to assume that the new game would be a traditional single-player role-playing game. But Fallout 76 is in fact an online survival RPG that’s heavily inspired by games like DayZ and Rust, according to…
The next big game from Fallout developer Bethesda Game Studios is Fallout: 76, the company announced today, and although the studio hasn’t yet said what it is, we hear it’s an online game of some sort.
It’s announcement-of-an-announcement season! Bethesda, the company behind several huge franchises, is teasing a new Fallout game, and as fans eagerly wait to see what it might be, they’ve spent hours watching a Twitch stream that shows nothing but a television and a Vault-Tec bobblehead.
Fallout: Cascadia is a mod project for Fallout 4 that aims to create an entirely new story for the game in Seattle. Cascadia first surfaced a couple years back, and like all ambitious fan projects inspired by Bethesda games, progress ebbs and flows. This week, however, the team released an official teaser trailer that…
The Ocelot is one of the most bizarre homemade consoles I’ve ever seen. It looks more like a piece of scientific equipment than something you’d play video games on. In all honesty there’s no reason for it to exist at all, but thanks to its determined builder, console modder Matthew Carr, it does.
Fallout: New California is a prequel mod to Fallout: New Vegas that fans of the early Fallout games began working on back in 20o9. Now, in the project’s most recent update, the makers say the game is finally playable from start to finish.
In the 20+ years since the Fallout franchise was introduced to the world, all of the games have been met with praise—which means that ranking them isn’t easy. It’s especially difficult to pit the games against each other when you consider that the post-nuclear franchise underwent a genre change.
Ticket to Ride, a casual board gaming juggernaut, is very light and cheery. Not at all the kind of thing you’d expect to be suited to a post-apocalyptic wasteland, but then, maybe that’s why this works.
One of Fallout 4's most popular mods is getting an expansion. Sim Settlements, which has been downloaded over a million times, lets you direct settlers in the construction of their own unique, living towns that they, not you, build. The expansion will add more personality and variety to that system. It looks so good…
Fallout: The Board Game is as faithful an adaptation of the source material as you could possibly hope for.
It’s easy to lose yourself for hours in the regular console or PC version of Fallout 4. One would imagine it’s even easier when completely surrounded by the sights and sounds of the Bostonian wastes in the Vive-exclusive Fallout 4 VR, but when you’re just a pair of objects floating in space, it’s not quite the same.
