Bethesda has announced Fallout 76, an online survival RPG inspired by DayZ and Rust, with an intriguing trailer.

First of all, the official teaser trailer below:

Further to that, new details have emerged courtesy of Jason Schreier at Kotaku. Anonymous sources describe “an experimental new entry” in the series. Originally the game was conceived as a multiplayer version of Fallout 4 and apparently a lot has changed since then.

Base building is said feature, which makes sense given that it’s usually a strong part of online survival games – see Conan Exiles and Rust.

The game takes its name from the Fallout Series’ Vault 76, a vault mentioned in Fallout 3 and 4. It’s a “control vault” designed to open 20 years after the event of nuclear war. Meaning the game’s world will be more savage and desolate than we’re used to – having witnessed buildings and towns popping up in previous games.

The game is reportedly being developed by Bethesda’s main Maryland team, which made Fallout 4 and Skyrim, at the company’s new Austin branch.
