After hours and hours and hours of livestream teasing, Bethesda finally unveiled the next installment of the Fallout franchise this morning: Fallout 76

Details on the game are scant (read: basically nonexistent). All we know about the game so far is what’s shown in the teaser video above, its name, and that it will have “online” capabilities — which in the age of the Internet tells us very, very little. 

However, unless Fallout 76 dramatically deviates from the other games in the franchise, we can safely say this new game from Bethesda is going to be either an ARPG like Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, and Fallout 4 or a return to the franchise’s isometric roots a la Fallout and Fallout 2

Dare we get excited for a new Fallout: Tactics?

We’ll know a lot more about the game come E3 2018. Bethesda will be hosting its press conference June 10 at 6:30 p.m. PDT.  You can watch the livestream of the event on Bethesda’s Twitch and YouTube channels.
