Bethesda announce Fallout 76

After yesterday’s teaser tweet, Bethesda have today revealed their latest work in the form of Fallout 76.

The game appears to be set in Vault 76, the trailer shows the well maintained vault, all decked out for a party, where they seem to be celebrating ‘Reclamation Day’.

According to Kotaku:

From what we’ve heard, this game is under development at both Bethesda Game Studios’ main office in Maryland and at the Austin office formerly known as Battlecry Studios. That Austin office, which started in 2012, was making a hero shooter called Battlecry before Bethesda cancelled it.
