For anyone wondering when we’ll get to return to the wasteland after 2015’s Fallout 4, Bethesda has answered that question with a teaser trailer for the next entry: Fallout 76. The game has been confirmed for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It appeared during Bethesda’s presentation at E3 2018, where we learned a ton–including the fact that it’s an online, multiplayer-enabled game. We also got a release date: November 14, 2018.
The game puts you in the shoes of a person who resided in Vault 76. Base-building returns from Fallout 4, and players can hunt down items that will allow them to fire nuclear missiles at areas of the map. The game is said to be four times bigger than its predecessor. We’ve got a complete roundup of all the Fallout 76 details.
Whether you’re a diehard fan of the series or you want to see what all the hype is about, you might be ready to lock in your Fallout 76 pre-order. If so, we have all the information you need below.
A pre-launch beta for Fallout 76 has been announced. We don’t yet know all the ways access will be granted, but pre-ordering (at least from select retailers) will guarantee you get in. A beta release date has not yet been announced.
Suggested retail price: $60
The standard edition of Fallout 76 comes with just the base game but is already available to pre-order.
Suggested retail price: $80
One step above the standard edition is the Deluxe edition, also known as the Tricentennial edition. You get the base game along with a variety of in-game bonus items. That includes the following goodies:
- Tricentennial Power Armor Customization for the T-51, T-45, T-60, and X-01 Power Armors
- Tricentennial Weapon Customization for the 10MM Pistol, Hatchet, and Laser Rifle
- Spectacularly Handsome Vault Boy Mascot Head
- Patriotic Uncle Sam Outfit
- Celebratory Vault Boy Saluting Emote
- First-Class Tricentennial Workshop Posters
- Tricentennial Commemorative Photo Frame
Provided you’re interested in those bonuses, you can pre-order this version from select retailers through the links below.
Suggested retail price: $200
Those willing to spend more can get a much grander package. In addition to a copy of Fallout 76 itself, the Power Edition gets you a ton of extras, the centerpiece of which is a T-51 Power Armor helmet. This is actually wearable and is equipped with a voice modulator speaker and a working headlamp. This comes with a West Tek canvas carrying bag.
Also included is a map showing Fallout 76’s world. This measures 21 inches by 21 inches and glows in the dark. Additionally, there are 24 figurines based on in-game models (covering likes like creatures and vault dwellers), a steelbook, and bonus in-game items (outlined with the Deluxe edition).
