If this is true, it's particularly awful when you consider how Bethesda went out of its way to differentiate itself with a campaign to save single-player games late a year ago.

The trailer features an unexpectedly sane looking vault whose denizens seem to have it pretty cushy considering the fate of other Vault-Tec experiments. There were speculations whether fans would have to stay patient until Bethesda's E3 press conference in the coming weeks but thankfully today we got some extra information.

Todd Howard revealed that the upcoming game is being developed by Bethesda Game Studios. This was teased just recently by the publisher.

This information comes from Kotaku, who are claiming that Fallout 76 is an online survival RPG.

Roland Garros: Serena Williams rediscovers winning ways in Paris
Williams made her return to the Roland Garros courts in a skintight black catsuit, saying she does so for a couple reasons. The tennis champ won her first match back on the court in March at Indian Wells but was sent home by her sister, Venus.

The video shows Gassama swiftly pulling himself up from balcony to balcony to reach the boy, to the cheers of onlookers. The boy's father was reportedly detained for alleged neglect, and the child has been placed in special care.

‘FIFA 18’ Predicts the World Cup Finalists
Finally, the FIFA World Cup Ultimate Team will update player cards throughout the tournament and include 17 World Cup Icons. This is after they have visited Morocco twice while inspecting the American bid just once.

It's not a new Elder Scrolls (c'mon Bethesda, stop leaving me hanging), but I'm kind of pumped if this Kotaku report turns out to be true.

In the background you can hear the song "Take Me Home, Country Roads", by John Denver which was released in 1971.

As far as game reveal trailers go, the teaser for Fallout 76 that dropped Wednesday morning was little more than by-the-numbers. Apart from traditional survival mechanics and base building, there will be a storyline and quests along the way, enhancing the overall experience. By comparison, Fallout 3 and 4 take place more than 200 years after the war. Set before even the original Fallout-as shown from a clock and calendar in the trailer-Fallout 76 will focus on the efforts of the citizens as they try to survive in an increasingly hostile world 20 years after the nuclear-apocalypse.

The Fallout series take place after a conflict between the United States and China, when the USA made a grave decision to oil drill off the Pacific Coast. There's also a gaming console showing the date is 2102, which would make this the earliest game set in the Fallout canon. However, Fallout 4 was met with a bit less fanfare from the video game community. Rumors have pointed to an online game though, so we'll have to wait and see if that pans out in any significant way. With it installed, your MISC tab in on your Pip-Boy is going to be a lot more manageable, particularly if you're deep into the game with tons and tons of items listed.
