Bethesda have shown off the first proper bit of Fallout 76 gameplay at their Bethesda E3 2018 showcase. Spread across four sparkly new trailers, this is our very first look at what post-apocalyptic West Virginia will look like, what we will be able to do their, and what beasts and locations we can expect to stumble upon while exploring this fresh wasteland.


There are heaps of details from the reveal, dozens of new enemy types (as well as some familiar faces), new weapons like the MG-42 and a flintlock pistol, and a tease of the new map. More importantly, this is also the first look at an online Fallout game, replete with first looks base building, raid-like quests, and… emotes.
