June 10, 2018 (Rockville, MD) - Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, today announced Fallout® 76 will be available November 14, 2018 on Xbox One, PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system, and PC.

Bethesda Game Studios, award-winning creators of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4, today revealed Fallout 76, the online prequel where every surviving human is a real person. Work together, or not, to survive. Under the threat of nuclear annihilation, players will experience the largest, most dynamic world ever created in the legendary Fallout universe.

Reclamation Day, 2102. Twenty-five years after the bombs fall, you and your fellow Vault Dwellers—chosen from the nation’s best and brightest – emerge into post-nuclear America. Play solo or join together as you explore, quest, build, and triumph against the wasteland’s greatest threats.

“We’ve been asked forever to bring multiplayer to one of our worlds,” said Todd Howard, Game Director at Bethesda Game Studios. “And once we had this idea, we knew it was perfect for Fallout. It’s great to finally share this game and this world with everyone.”

Be one of the first to emerge into a new and untamed wasteland. Pre-order Fallout 76 and receive access to the Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. (Break-It Early Test Application).
